If you bought tickets through Tickemaster in roughly the last decade you might have some free tickets coming to you. Due to a lawsuit they are offering people that bought tickets from 2013 and back about ten years free tickets or discounts, I would imagine based on how many tickets you bought within that time frame. To see if you have any tickets coming to you go check out the Ticketmaster site. I did and discovered I have 17 free tickets coming to me and about that many more with discounts. (And the free tickets actually are two tickets.) I went to a lot of shows during that period. The only down side so far is that they aren’t listing any of the shows that you can redeem your free tickets towards yet. I’m hoping that they are halfway decent shows and not something I will have no desire to go see. More on this as it develops.
Javi and I just finished 24 pages over at Ayla Speaker for the Dead. This concludes our first chapter of the first storyline. The first story is scheduled to run three chapters, if all goes according to plan and I don’t add more to it. Originally I was thinking it was going to be only two chapters, but as I wrote more of the story grew and at the moment the outline calls for three chapters. With the first chapter complete we are preparing it for a printed version. As we complete 24 pages the plan is to print it so you can own your own copy of the comic. We are very excited for this and can’t wait to actually hold a copy of Ayla in our hands. We may miss a week or two of publishing while we get it ready, but we’ll be back to putting pages up shortly.
I’m a little late in talking about this. Three weeks ago we debuted the newest comic to feature my writing. The Almighty Project. This one is a lot different than Ayla Speaker for the Dead. For starters it’s in black and white. I know a lot of people might be turned off just because of that, but I think black and white is just as creative as color. A lot of the comics I wrote when I first started writing are in black and white. I’m hoping that the fact it’s in black and white won’t deter anyone from reading it.
The Almighty Project is my attempt at a Young Adult Novel. If you’re a fan of Andrew Smith and any of his books, blame him. I picked up The Grasshopper Jungle and fell in love with his writing. It lead me to immediately look for every book the man has ever written and proceed to read them. Which in turn lead me to want to write my own Young Adult Novel. I wouldn’t blame it completely on Mr. Smith, I’ve been reading others before him, but he really grabbed me.
This story has more autobiographical elements in it than anything I have ever written also. I’ll leave it the reader to determine which are which.
Please give it read and let me know what you think. This story means a lot of me and I hope you enjoy it.
