Hi all,

It's been a long road but the book is finished (182 pages in full color and edited by Broken Icon Comics) and is scheduled for release June of 2014.  I will post the links to where it can be purchased when that becomes available.  I would like to thank all of the backers of this project.  Please check out my new project scheduled for a late 2014 release titled the Infernal Pact. The Script is finished and artwork will begin shortly.

Issue #2 is in!

Comment

Hi all,

I want to thank everyone again for all their support in helping make this project happen. I'm going to be heading to Boston for the Comicon from April 20th  till the 21st so if you are in Boston stop by and we can shoot the breeze. 

Issue #2 is printed and ready for shipping this week.  It will be sent out on thrusday to all backers who ordered it so you should receive your orders by no later than wednesday of next week.  After getting back several reviews from people important changes were made to Issue #1 and any new copies printed will reflect those changes.  That being said the copies you have might one day be worth something.  Issue #3 is well underway and hopefully will be ready for print next month.

I encourage all of you to join the Calamitous Black Devils on facebook at: www.facebook.com/TheCalamitousBlackDevils

Want issue #2 but didnt order one?  Go to this link http://www.comixpress.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=0&products_id=2172

Thanks everyone I look forward to your feedback

Sincerely,

Joseph Schmalke

    THE INK PACKAGE My first paying gig as an artist was in New Orleans, tattooing in the back of a barber shop. This package includes printed and signed copies of the regular and limited edition issues mailed to you, PLUS I will create a tattoo design of your choosing. While you certainly may choose a design of Ana-Zaha, the Ancient One (the flaming skeleton lady on the left), I have done other designs as well-- the only limit is your imagination. Imagine the Commission Package, but instead of being on your wall, it will be on your body.
