Furman has also used the pseudonym Chris Francis on occasion, most notable when editing Marvel UK's Transformers in order to keep his role separate from writing some of the stories.


  1. "Well, in December I got the news from Wildstorm that StarCraft would finish with issue #7. Which was disappointing, because I was solidly into the next story arc , which featured some of the game’s heavy-hitters. But, this just heralded a change of editorial direction, and I expect/hope to be back in the StarCraft universe in 2010 in the shape of an original graphic novel featuring those selfsame heavy-hitters. More details as this firms up." Simon Furman. 2010-01-31. 2010 – UPDATES!!!. Simon Furman Wordpress. Accessed 2010-06-21.
  2. "Starcraft OGN is very definitely ON. No release date as yet but I have started scripting. Big, big story, one that will leave a kind-sized crater in the StarCraft universe!! More details as and when." Simon Furman. 2010-06-24. NORD STAR. Simon Furman Wordpress. Accessed 2010-06-24.
  3. "Hi Dylan – the StarCraft (100-page!) OGN is happening as we speak. I’m midway through the script, and although there are no War Pigs in it, it does pick up on some of the brewing story strands from the comic run. In fact, it pits two of the SC Universe’s biggest and baddest characters against each other in a story that will have repercussions for the entire Koprulu Sector. Probably won’t see print until mid to late 2011. I’ll keep you updated." Simon Furman. 2010-08-12. CANDY ASSORTMENT Simon Furman Wordpress. Accessed 2010-09-10.
