Figured it was time to update some of the comics I’m working on.
As you should all know by now, the first issue is out, which collects the first 24 pages of the webcomic. We haven’t posted any new pages on the site yet, but we are working hard to get back up and online. We should start posting the pages for the second issue before much longer. The first ten pages are all in some sort of completion and I’m working on the script for the back half of the book. This issue is going to be a little more violent than the previous issue and should lead into the third issue which should tie up the first storyline.
This one is on hold for the moment as I search for a new artist. Hopefully I’ll be able to announce some good news soon and we can get this back on track. I really love this story and want to see it complete. The plan was to have the first issue out by now, but unfortunately the best laid plans and all that stuff….
The newest comic. This is coming along like a house on fire. (mmmm, is that a good comparison? It’s meant to be.) The artist Tyler Carpenter already has ten pages complete and is almost to the point of having to wait for me to provide pages of script. The first issue is a one and done story, detailing her origin. We may actually publish this before we put it up on the web we’re making such good time with it. This is going to be a really fun comic.
This one is written and I’m waiting on some of the art for it. I just got two new pages today and they look great! I’m down to about four or five pages and this one will be ready to be printed. It’s got an amazing cover by Javi Laparra and I can’t wait to get it out there.
This was just published last month and contains an old story by myself and artist Ron Wilber. It’s first publication probably saw less than a dozen people picking it up and it was buried inside a huge 80 page anthology so I’m pretty confident that not many people have read this yet. It’s a funny story that imagines what if Hunter Thompson retired, moved to Florida and became a Republican? Well, not really Mr. Thompson, but a character in the same vein.
These two comics should be out by the end of the month, they’re at the print now. They are two different comic, just with one awesome cover by the always talented Javi Laparra again. The first one collects my short comic book stories over the years and the second some prose stories and articles I’ve written. And of course both have the introductions about when and where the stories were written.
This is the first collection of interviews from Voices to hear and is pretty much finished, but I’m going to have to wait on printing it for a bit, until I have some more money to get it done. This will done as a perfect bound book and clock in around a hundred pages. So the price is going to be a little more than on the regular comic book printing. It’s coming, just maybe be another month or two before I can get to it.
And for all the other work I’ve talked about and some I haven’t talked about, it’s all in one form or another, but right now nothing close enough for me to really announce. There are some great comics if we get them done. I’ve got the collection of all my old Lizards stories from Critters once I get them all together. And probably a few things I’ve probably even forgot about.
