Been a bit since the last update; Gail and I are trying to clear time to continue our saga, but it's the busy season. Gail's got a lot of commitments; and I've been doing a bunch of tight-deadline help on Red Lanterns (just finished some pages for 34 and starting FUTURE'S END, RL's bit of the DCU jump-ahead-in-time event). Hopefully we'll have some concrete news for you soon. And there's the time-consuming conventions. San Diego this weekend. We'll be there. Gail should be signing at the various publishers; and I'm at my regular booth, 4301 in hall F. Come by and see us. I'll have copies of the KS edition for sale for any of your friends who missed the campaign.
Those backers still waiting on some of the guest artist sketches, I'm working hard at being a pest. I'll be picking up several more at SDCC.
And I'm working at finishing up the full commissions. It seems like every time I start, an editor calls. But at least now all of them are in various stages of progress on the boards. I've attached one of my favorite completed ones below for some eye-candy. The HULK is my favorite character, but I never ever drew Doc Samson, so it was a lot of fun. The backer asked for him to look like he just went ten rounds with the Hulk.
Some of you might've noticed that the Dark Horse edition of LM has a release date, September 17th. Fingers crossed for good sales.
Lastly, I'm involved in another Kickstarter project by good friend industry pro Mark McKenna. I drew his children's book. (I know. Me? A children's book?) It's the next in his series of his own character BANANATAIL, a little monkey with, you guessed it, a yellow tail. The books are a lot of fun, and this is the halloween special. He has a low goal; just trying to cover printing. If you have some time, please take a look. (And forgive his wooden video presence; I told him he needs to get an actor to portray him.) check it out here
Thanks for your patience, and enthusiasm. A lot of people have come up to us at shows and told us how much they love the book.
More soon. Promise.
