Drop Target Omnibus Progress Update
It's been a busy week for both Alec and I as we head into the Thanksgiving weekend. We're both working hard to finish up our copy edits on the content of the book, as well as working away at the notes for the back of the book. Alec is almost done with his comic, and I'm doing a couple last spot illustrations.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Alec and I wanted to share something we are truly thankful for: getting to work with so many amazing artists and creators these last 7 years to help us make Drop Target and share our love pinball! This week, we'd like to put a spotlight on our contributors!
