Update #38

Pariah, Missouri letters column & SpaceBear

Comment

Hello everyone! I have two things I wanted to share with you. WonderCon was great, and I'm heading to Big Wow and Long Beach next. I'm also working on getting Pariah in Diamond's Previews...more on that later.

Item #1 - We are ON SCHEDULE to finish Pariah, Missouri vol 2 this summer! WoOHOO! Here is what I need your help on. For the Vol 2 trade I want to resurrect the old LETTER COLUMN! That's right. YOU CAN BE IN PRINT! I will have 3-4 pages extra to throw in some letters and this is your shot at writing something to me and I will print it and respond in the book. This is how Brian Michael Bendis and others started out! SO, send me an EMAIL with your comment, thoughts, questions etc and I will include it in the vol 2 of Pariah, Missouri. Pretty cool huh? I think so! If you want to get fancy and send photos, costumes, tattoos, go for it, I might put those in too! I need this in by May 16th, so I can add it to the InDesign file. Here's my email: andresjsalazar@gmail.com

Item #2 - You might have heard I wrote and illustrated a children's book, SpaceBear. We are working on making it an animated show, along with the rest of the Adventure Bear Squad, so here is the new Kickstarter for it. It is only 14 days. Please go check it out!

Thank you!

Hello my esteemed backers!

We are moving along with volume 2 of Pariah, Missouri.  I am working each day on coloring and lettering, and we are on target for this summer for completion.  I am very excited about this next chapter and what you all will think of the new character, Elijah Harris.

Here's a picture of some new pages that just arrived!

 As for conventions for 2014.  I will be at the following:

  • Seattle Emerald City Comic Con
  • LA Festival of Books
  • WonderCon
  • Long Beach
  • C4
  • Rose City
  • APE

Now to something a little different.  Toady is a special day because i launched SPACEBEAR the first in a series of comics/children's book hybrid that will be some great all-ages fun!  Unlike Pariah, this is for the kiddies, and I made it fun enough for parents to want to read it over and over. 
Please take a moment and have a look, share it with your network that have children, I think it's something special!

Last Update - moving to Pariah, MO fan club!

Comment

Hello Esteemed backers from 2012!  Last December you backed this comic and in March I sent you your reward. Hopefully you all enjoyed it.  Some of you even backed my second kickstarter, which was the complete vol 1 softcover and hardcover.  I'm now moving on to using a fan club and newsletter to communicate with folks so I will not be giving updates to this particular kickstarter, so, if you want to

A. Be aware of new Pariah, Missouri comics, the TV development or other media.

B. Be aware of other graphic novel & multimedia properties that I am writing.

C. Want to purchase said graphic novels and games.

D. Be a member of an elite fan club and access to special events, discounts and promotions.

Send me your email that you'd like me to use and I'll put you on THE LIST.  I won't be spamming you, we will be sending out quarterly to bimonthly newsletters.

Well, that's it, thanks again for all the support, here are a few pics from today as I pack up comics from the latest kickstarter!

Update #34

Last Update! (maybe) + Special / Secret reward for backers!

1 comment

Hey guys!  

Well, the Kickstarter project for the completed hardcover and trade paperback is in full-swing and doing great!  Some of you have backed it and I thank you.  I had an idea yesterday, thinking, "Hey what about people who ALREADY backed the first one? What do they get out of it?"  Of course they get the full story and an awesome book, but I want to do MORE for you guys!!

The book is DONE.  So I have some time to make something VERY special for ALL backers who back BOTH projects.

Once you back both projects, message me and I will put you on the Uber-Backer List.

This isn't going to be some lame bookmark or print.  I'm TALKING BIG HERE.

I have it down to 2-3 options and I don't want to reveal it yet, but it might be a PARIAH GAME or a Prelude Story or something else.  Something that will have some value and take time to make.

So there you have it, one last and final plug, and I want you guys to feel loved, now I gotta go to work on it!

Cheers

Andres
