Aaaaaand I accidentally posted that last update before I was all done, my apologies. I should probably tell you that I'm writing this in a hotel in Denver after my flight was cancelled into Boise last night so things are a bit foggy. I spent the weekend in New York City attending the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival with portions of my ACA group as well as my Master Artist Paul Pope. It was a productive time. I was able to meet and speak with Bob Schreck, a comic book editor of legendary proportions, as well as Charles Brownstein who runs The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, otherwise known as CBLDF.
For those of you not familiar with CBLDF, its basically a non-profit organization that serves as the protector of First Amendment rights on behalf of the comic book community. Neil Gaiman, Frank Miller and Paul Pope are just some of the names of creators that work closely with CBLDF and even if you yourself are not a creator of comics, it is a great organization that is worth supporting. Charles is a great guy, very intelligent (as well as a fan of Maker's Mark) so he was okay in my book from the get go.
Thanks again for all of the support with VOLUME ONE and sticking by me. As these past couple of months have gone by, I've realized just how important you and this Kickstarter were. My only goal was to print a book, but through that, you've allowed me to open new doors, meet new people and begin to actually help carve a place out for me in the greater comic book industry. I can't thank you enough. When I look back on my life, VOLUME ONE's Kickstarter is going to represent the turning point in my career that I never expected to have, and I quite literally couldn't have done it without you all, so thank you, once again.
