It's been a bit since I last checked in with you, but I thought I'd keep you all posted on the current progress on FG.
As of Sunday, the rough fully colored issue #3 has been finished! WAHOO! Over half way there! And, since you all have been so patient, we have a preview of the first 6 pages below! CHECK THEM OUT!
We will be going back to adjust colors or any critiques later, after rough production on issues 4 - 5 are finished. Currently, these issues have been scripted, and concept art is being created for them. This is the issues funded by kickstarter, and where anyone who paid 150 or 1000 will appear. Concept sketches for you guys forthcoming. Now, about the other rewards...
Zack has been trying to do the rewards in between working on Issue 3 of Gear, but we wanted to focus on putting out a quality issue before that. Now that issue 3 has finished its first pass, Zack will be finishing these today and tomorrow. After that, he will mail them to me, and I will mail out all rewards (art, scripts, and digital comic copies).
Just to note about the printed copies as per reward: There is some good news and some bad news.
BAD NEWS: I will not be printing copies of the book until all 5 issues have been 100% completed. And I will also not be making individual issues. Just a trade book containing all 5 issues.
GOODNEWS: That's what you're getting instead. 5 issues, 1 book. If you plan to go to comic con, I will pass it along then. If not, I will mail them to you once they arrive, printed.
That's about it for now. Keep you all posted when there's more to share about issue 4&5.
