THE SCHLUB - CHARACTER PROFILE: WYRM
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BIG BAD OF THIS NEW SERIES!
KLC PRESS’s upcoming series THE SCHLUB is, in the simplest terms, the story of a very unlikely hero. And unlikely heroes need unpredictable villains. Which is where WYRM comes in.
In this first in a small series of THE SCHLUB CHARACTER BRIEFS, learn what some of the creators behind the book had to say about this sickly looking baddie…
Artist Tyrell Cannon, who is providing pencils and inks for The Schlub, said he immediately gravitated to the villain of the piece, opting to design him before the titular character. On Wyrm’s design process, Cannon said, “He is so much fun to draw… this design was pass one.” And the character continued to evolve, as Tyrell puts it, once Wyrm was on the page, “he got even gnarlier.”
Wyrm has to go head-to-head with the god-like stature of CIRRUS, the god-like hero who is body swapped with Roger Dalton, hence the spindly, extremely tall nature of the character. “I wanted him to feel equal, but opposite to Cirrus,” Cannon said.
As for what fans can expect from reading Wyrm’s story in the pages of The Schlub, Co-Writers Ryan Stegman and Kenny Porter said there are plenty of surprises to come. “When you find out [Wyrm’s] story… it’s part of what I think makes the book so interesting,” said Stegman. Porter followed up with a tease about the characters motivations: “He’s got real reasons for what he’s doing…. It’ll be very fun for people to see where this guy is coming from, what his plans are, and what crazy other stuff I made Tyrell draw in relation to him.”
