GOING TO PRESS

Hello everyone,

I wanted to address a few delays with getting the Dead Don't Die printed. These delays have been addressed and I'm happy to say the book will be ready to send to the printer by the end of the week. The reason for the delay (aside from post-graduation fatigue) has to do with the interior color of the comic. This is my first color book and I really wanted to take the time to make the color look awesome. 

I got an advance print run made for the Stumptown Comics Fest back in April. While I thought the books looked great, the color was a bit dark. So I've taken the time to brighten each of the pages slightly (but not too much as I want to keep the moody tone intact) and I've been digitally painting the characters so they jump out form the background a bit more. This has been a slower process than I anticipated, and I wanted to make sure my backers knew what was going on.

I hope to get the books by August and to you all by the end of the summer. I'll be posting more new artwork and updates as the project progresses.

Many thanks again to your continued support and your patience.
