About this project

Let's get Gridcurrent - Issue 1 made! Gridcurrent's first issue will be a twelve page story (16 total pages for the addition of a Contributors section and concept art) , standard sized, colored, science fiction comic book. This issue will kick-off the first part of the first story arc. My goal is to use this issue to get the ball rolling on the title by having printed comics as well as some other cool items available - stickers, prints and T-shirts.

I have the first arc written, the illustrations are complete for issue one, the 'flats' (base colors) are complete for issue one, shading and highlights have been started for issue one, the cover art is complete for issue one, and some of the text has been started for issue one. This project is already on the move!

Risks and challenges

I'm only one person. I've already come to understand how much more time this project has already taken me since I do work a very demanding job and have to juggle the family life.

-I've made sure the bulk of the work has already been done before starting this project. I'm in too deep to stop now!

-If it comes down to it, I know some talented folks who wouldn't mind giving a hand.

-Personally, I would love to have this ready by mid January, but to play it safe, I have set the estimated delivery time to March. If it's ready sooner, I'll for sure get it out sooner.
