So it may seem quiet on the RBR front, but that’s only because we have been so busy. We have some extremely exciting news to announce. After what we considered to be a hugely successful start, Ben and I decided that we wanted to continue with the Raised by Raptors series, and complete it. But we have also learned a lot from the first issue, of our strengths and weaknesses, and have decided to make some changes.
We would firstly like to introduce Gerardo Sandoval. He will be taking on all of the drawing duties, injecting his amazing talent and style into the series. Gerardo has worked on such titles as Cable and X-Force, Avengers vs X-men and Captain Marvel for Marvel Comics and also Tomb Raider for Top Cow.
One thing we did learn very quickly when we launched RBR on kickstarter and developed the online store, is how many other things need to be addressed. This took up a good majority of Ben’s drawing time and led us to the decision to bring on someone else to help out. We were talking to Gerardo at the time and he showed a keen interest in RBR and it wasn’t long before he was onboard. This meant that Ben could concentrate on colouring the book and running the back end of things properly. “Colouring Gerardo’s lines has brought another level to the comic! I’m so lucky to be working with his art. It also means that we can get issues out quicker too.”
With the new addition to the team, we have decided to treat the first issue as a pilot. Now don’t panic, everyone who has purchased the first issue can still read the second and it will make perfect sense. The saga will just continue…
To celebrate Gerardo’s involvement, we have a very special poster, drawn by Gerardo and coloured by Ben, on sale only at the webstore HERE. Get one while you can, and check out a sample of what to expect from the future of Raised by Raptors!
We apologise to all the people waiting for issue 2 but it is happening and it will be better than ever. Hold tight!
