H - But what relevance does all this have to our graphic novel, Rex?
R – So, out of a desire not to waste the large amount of art I'd created for these projects, I decided to throw the pages from the three old stories together into a kind of smorgasbord, and to see if I could turn those pages into a single brand new story. I found a common element linking The Immortals and Machines of God in the form of the central protagonists; but The Wall Paper that Ate London, my own book, was harder to incorporate into the new story, and I wasn't entirely satisfied with the results. That's when you stepped into the project, to help with the writing of the new story: John Barleycorn Must Die. We've got three separate graphic novels worth of art that we're weaving together into a whole new tale.
