Paul Dini Talks Dinicartoons
Paul Dini talks with Comic Book Resources about the new Dinicartoons imprint at Top Cow:
After a good turn with Top Cow’s Madame Mirage, comics and animation veteran Paul Dini and Top Cow top brass Matt Hawkins and Rob Levin put their heads together to come up with a new project to work on together. That project became Dinicartoons, an imprint by which Dini intends to feature not only his own original characters, but also those of up-and-coming artists and animators.
The first book published under the Dinicartoons banner features Dini’s holiday character, Jingle Belle. Originally published by Oni Press, Dini’s Jingle Belle stories chronicle the adventures of Santa Claus’ spoiled teenaged daughter. The new Belle book pits Old Saint Nick against a decidedly unexpected foe: Frankenstein’s monster. For readers familiar with the ending to Mary Shelley’s classic horror novel, the possibility of these two pop-culture icons crossing paths is not as far fetched as it seems.
