Walter Koenig's "Raver" Comic To Be Republished, Plus New "Things To Come"

Walter Koenig's "Raver" Comic To Be Republished, Plus New "Things To Come"

During our coverage of Vegas Khhaaan!, Walter Koenig hinted at his upcoming projects including, what we misunderstood to be a TV script, a Vampire story that will soon be released in comic book form called "Things to come", the new story focuses on a post-apocalyptic world where Vampires are the dominant species. The four part mini-series will be released in the spring of next year and will be published by Bluewater Productions.

Walter sat down with MTV's Splash Page to discuss his upcoming comic release with hints into the backstory. He also has a re-issue of his 90's comic "Raver" also published by Bluewater and set for the same release time frame as "Things to come". Check out an excerpt from the interview below.

"The one intelligent species that can survive in this post-apocalyptic world are vampires, and they are a bridge from what has gone before, which is this self-destruction of the human race, and what will come after," explained Koenig. "They are in pursuit of their own meaning. Why are they there? Why have they been created?"

"There are those among them who think it is an act of god, and those who thoroughly reject that idea," he added.

"I don't know that they're good guys," he said. "They evolve as circumstances dictate. They do things that offer the promise of being good, but there are those who are more bitter and they see themselves as doomed to a terrible, soulless eternity."

"I had one concept about how the story would end and what will come from these vampire species, but as I grew closer to the end of the story I found myself changing it," he said. "So now it's a different ending than I had initially thought."

"As pretentious as it sounds, I don't want to mimic what has gone before," he explained. "My purpose isn't to capitalize on a theme, but inject it with some fresh ideas. That's what makes writing fun for me. It's always been what makes writing fun for me."
