First look at Occupy Comics art! Distribution update!
It's been a while since the last update, but have no fear... we've been pluggin away in the lab making cool art and tinkering with new types of release models.
We let Wired post some excerpts from the works-in progress, including selections from Joshua Dysart & Allen Gladfelter, Douglas Rushkoff & Dean Haspiel, J.M. DeMatteis & Mike Cavallaro, Swifty Lang & Frank Reynoso, Zane Grant, Brea Grant & Jonathan Spies, Ales Kot & Tyler Crook, and Mike Allred.

The Wired article also gives an update on the release method we're putting together. Initially I was hoping we could partner with a publisher or retailer to work with us on distribution, but we weren't happy with any of the deals we were offered. So instead I decided to invent a solution we'd be happy with, and it wound up seeming like a pretty cool way to support comics creators in general. It's called Black Mask Studios and you can read more about it over at Wired.
Thanks for supporting the project everybody. We're doing our best to make an awesome book. Now that the pages are coming in and the plan is really coalescing, I'll be sending along updates more regularly.
