Se7en and the burden of sin

I'm fortunate enough to be writing, along with my brother Adam, one of the issues for the upcoming series Se7en. Zenescope Entertainment will be publishing it in association with New Line Cinema.

Each installment in the series will focus on one of the seven deadly sins. The one we're tackling is Lust.

To truly capture the spirit of the movie I had to get into a very dark frame of mind. The character we're dealing with, John Doe, is a deliberate man who feels everything he does is right. His purpose is strong.

Ok, that much we know already. We saw what he did to make his point. But how did John Doe's conviction come to be? It surely didn't happen overnight. Well, that's what we're going to delve into...

Wow! Congrats on the gig, Christian. Seven is a terrific movie and one of my favorites (which is probably a bit creepy). I'm definitely picking this up.

Thanks! There are some other great writers on the series, including David Wohl, the co-creator of Witchblade.

As soon as I get preview pages I'll post 'em!

Gotta say, I really ENVY you. I'd kill to write something way offbeat like that.
