David F. Walker is launching his own comic book company called Solid Comix. Through this company, Walker intends to self-publish various creator-owned limited series and OGNS - beginning with the five-issue wrestling series One Fall by Walker and artist Brett Weldele.
"I’m still working with other publishers, and have several major projects coming out over the next several years," Walker said. "But there are also projects that I want to do, which for a variety of reasons simply make more sense to publish myself.
"For those of you that don’t know, my writing career began in 1996 with the self-published ‘zine BadAzz MoFo," he continued. "Not only did BadAzz MoFo contain my first published comic book stories; it was also my introduction to the comic industry. Every great professional opportunity I’ve had sprang from the work I did as a self-publisher. And that’s why I’m getting back to my self-publishing roots with Solid Comix."
One Fall is scheduled to debut this spring, followed by The Hated with artist Sean Damien Hill.
Walker currently writes Naomi (DC/Wonder Comics), Superb (Lion Forge), and the creator-owned title Bitter Root (Image Comics). He also teaches comic writing at Portland State, with a new class scheduled to begin in Spring 2020.
