Michel Fiffe’s Copra

A bare knuckle dusting action extravaganza, Copra is a comic that doesn’t come along very often. A series that is raw with its energy and inspirational with its non stop frisson of violence from issue to issue, this is only the kind of comic that could come from an 8 year old’s dream. As a young boy, Fiffe was heavily influenced by Suicide Squad, Dark Knight and other dark action comics of the 80’s which resulted in a series that challenges the reader month to month.

Begun in 212, Copra has been collected in 5 volumes as well as a new ongoing series from Image. But it all started with a self publishing enterprise that caught fire with readers and comic book pundits alike.

copra-trade-paperbacks-find-new-home-at-image-comics-this-may_0935c1c475Via ComicsAlliance:

It’s been a pretty amazing accomplishment in self-publishing, let alone one of the best stories going in comics today. With Fiffe set to debut a new compendium of the first three issues at next weekend’s MoCCA Fest in New York, we talked to him about influences, how he gets a full issue out by himself every month, and what he’ll be doing after Copra‘s 12-issue run ends this fall.ComicsAlliance: We really first got to know your work at ComicsAlliance from DEATHZONE, the Suicide Squad fan comic that you did. I’m a huge Suicide Squad fan, and it’s pretty obvious from that and from Copra that you are too. How did you first encounter that book?

copraMichel Fiffe: It was one of the first comics I ever read, when I was about eight years old. I had a handful of comics before that, especially reprints that I had in Spain, where I lived for about a year, like Flash comics, but only a handful. My first real book was Suicide Squad, and it was #13, where they fight the Justice League.

Do you remember that issue, with the jail cell in the Russian prison? That blew me away. That was amazing. I think it had Batman kicking the crap out of Rick Flag and then he quit, it was a very intense issue. Even though it was in the middle of a storyline, it left an impact on me and I started collecting the back issues and following it every month for years.

deathzoneSo when I started doing DEATHZONE, I didn’t usually do the genre of superhero work. It was a huge departure for me, and I actually had no idea that people liked Suicide Squad comics. You’d written about them on ComicsAlliance and I knew that, and my pal Tucker Stone, he and I talked about Suicide Squad, but I just did this as a risk. It was an exercise for me, to create this little bootleg thing that I only printed up a couple hundred copies of to give to my friends, and it was like the best thing I ever did. I was so proud of it. It was just a chance to use these characters in such a fun way that wasn’t a work-for-hire job or commissions or anything. It was totally improvised on the spot, and it took me about a month to do. So with that template, and the response I got from DEATHZONE, that’s what paved the way to Copra.

I came up with it right after DEATHZONE. My old comics series was Zegas, and I did DEATHZONE as a break. Rather than just going right back to Zegas, I was writing a script for it and it was taking too long, and I had the energy and inspiration to do something like DEATHZONE, but I didn’t want to make another bootleg comic. That’s just not what I wanted to do. Why not create my own thing? My own Suicide Squad.

copra_3That opened the doors to thinking “I could create my own so-and-so,” my own cast of characters and original ideas, too, and mix them up with the analogues. That’s how it came to be. I worked on it for a couple months, mapped out everything, to see if I could get enough mileage out of it. And the funny thing is, the more I worked on it, the more I get ideas for future stories. I definitely want to get deeper into the characters and expand the landscape of their world.

It first started as a 12-issue thing, and now I feel like I could do this forever, honestly.

That was then, when Copra was coming out from Bergen Press and was hotly sought after by fans (you can still find collections on Amazon). But this piece from Newsarama  establishes that Copra has made the move to Image. Now more accessible for readers old and new, the comic is hitting the shelves across the country.

Writer/artist Michel Fiffe’s COPRA series is jumping to Image Comics, with reprints of the first 31 issues debuting May 1 across five volumes.

“They’re ugly. They’re mean. But up until today, they’ve always been loyal,” reads Image’s description of the first volume. “So when one of their own betrays them, COPRA has no choice but to turn their nightmarish skills back on everyone who ever even looked at them funny. Here it is: the first six issues of MICHEL FIFFE’s critically acclaimed superhero revenge machine.”
