Update #15

A New Member of the Package Team

Comment

Hi, everyone -

Well, we're in the last couple of days of The Package Kickstarter, and I can't thank you all enough for how well it has gone.  As I sit down to write this update, we're 110% funded, which is just plain fantastic!

Now to the news at hand: I am really pleased to announce a new member of the creative team for The Package - letterer extraordinaire Dave Lanphear of Artmonkeys Studios! If you've read a Marvel comic in the last few years, you will have seen Dave's lettering work on titles like The Avengers. But Dave doesn't just do superhero books - he also letters for Archaia, and his work has graced titles such as Fraggle Rock and the 2011 Eisner Award-winning best graphic novel The Return of the Dapper Men (which you should really check out - it's beautiful work).

And, if that were not enough, Dave and Alexis took some classes together back in the proverbial day. So it feels like this was meant to be.

Thanks for coming aboard, Dave!

Elliot
