The Annotated Dream-Quest
Now that overseas supporters have received their books (supporters in the US will be getting them once the remainder arrive from the printer in about 2-3 weeks), I wanted to let you know that I've put up some more notes on the drawing of Dream-Quest! Think of it as the "Annotated Dream-Quest."
These notes, broken down page by page, are based on some notes I wrote as a "commentary track" for Edward Martin III's "Dream-Quest" DVD. I've revised them for the book version and added some notes on Celephais, The White Ship and The Strange High House in the Mist. I talk about my inspirations, children's books, what I was thinking of when I drew it, and Lovecraftiana in general.
Also, if you're into roleplaying games, you might be interested in checking out my new gaming webcomic, King of RPGs, which just launched at the end of January! It started out as a set of graphic novels from Del Rey (they play Call of Cthulhu in the 2nd volume), and now I'm doing new stories online. Please check it out!
Stay tuned for more news as well about my next comic, The Doom That Came to Sarnath!
