Newsarama has conducted an interview with upcoming Red Robin artist, Marcus To, about his upcoming work on Aspen Comics’ Soulfire Volume 2, which sees release on Wednesday September 9th, 2009 with issue #0 (Thursday September 10th, 2009 in the US).

For fans of Aspen’s fantasy comic series Soulfire, there’s going to be a deluge of new material and big changes to the futuristic Soulfire world in the next few months as Volume 2 begins with art by Marcus To.

Working with Soulfire writer J.T. Krul, To has been working on Volume 2 of Soulfire for some time now while Volume 1 was on hiatus, waiting for Michael Turner to come back to the series he created. After the artist passed away in June 2008, Aspen ended up finishing Soulfire’s first volume with art by Joe Benitez.

“I started Soulfire volume 2 about 2 years ago after finishing the Fathom: Kiani mini series, but with all the health problems that Mike had and some other issues with the first volume, my run on the book wasn’t able to be put to print,” To said. “But with Joe Benitez, who finished up the last bit of volume 1, the book is back on track and I’m really excited about them being released.”
