6 Years in 6 Minutes

1 like

Hello, noble backers, and greetings. It's been a long, long time since you all lent me your support and helped get the first issue of 'Soulless' off the ground. In the intervening 6 years (6? Really? It feels like forever ago) a lot has happened. This update is intended to provide a final summary of what's happened with 'Soulless' as well as mention what else may be on the horizon. 

First, foremost, and of most interest to you all: what's happened with 'Soulless'? Those of you who followed me on Facebook might know some of this, but the comic has had a rocky up-and-down journey over the last half-decade. I made strong inroads with a publisher that I met at a convention, and we actually made good progress on getting a deal in place to publish the final 6 issues of the comic. Unfortunately, everything fell apart when my artist decided to leave the project, leaving us somewhat directionless. After that, we explored various options, but one thing after another fell through until the publisher ultimately lost interest and moved on to other things. While 'Soulless' is still near and dear to my heart, I am not entirely sure what the future holds for it. I am currently working with an excellent artist on another project (and have been for a few years) who is interested and willing to tackle 'Soulless,' unfortunately I just don't have the finances to personally produce it. So in the meantime, I'm still looking for an option that will get this made, but I have no timeline. For now, here's a sample page from the artist who, if this gets back off the ground, will likely be illustrating. 

 Next, let me tell you briefly about the other project I alluded to above. As many of you know, I have written a webcomic for many years (this, in itself, followed up years of writing a weekly comic in college). I have worked with many different artists over the years, but about 4 years ago I began working with Aleksandar Jovic and have never looked back. The comic is titled Counterfeit Nickels and ran for 6 years overall, and 4 with Aleksandar. Recently, we decided to take down our website and archives and re-start the comic, focusing on reaching a wider audience than we ever had before. Currently, we are a month into our new once-a-week publication schedule, and the comic is also being published on GeekDad.com and the tabletop gaming site APawnsPerspective. Our core platform is our Facebook page, which I would like to cordially invite you to like and share. A new comic goes up every Tuesday at 6PM CT. As a special treat for you backers, here is a comic that won't be published for nearly a year. Enjoy! 

That's the nutshell version of what's been going on, at least related to 'Soulless.' In my own life, I now am the Director of Operations for an escape room, which is a fun, constantly-challenging job. I also have been very involved with the board game world, and have some projects on that front that should be going public later this year. 

Thanks for sticking with me, if you've read this far, and I hope you found something of interest. This will likely be the last update I make on this page until such a day as I have something concrete to offer on the 'Soulless' front. In the meantime, I hope you join me over on the Facebook page for my comic and I look forward to showing everyone what else I have in the pipeline. 

Thanks, everyone!

Hello, everyone. It's been a while. That is, in large part, due to the fact that I migrated most updates over to my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/loganmichaelgiannini)

However, I felt that it was germane to bring it back here for this post. As many of you know, I have been working with a publisher for about a year now to try and bring the rest of Soulless to life. It's been a slow process. First, George dropped out as our artist. Following that, we found an artist we liked who took a down-payment and was never heard from again. As the months have gone by, communication with the publisher has thinned to a point where I am not entirely sure where the project stands. Needless to say, this isn't where I want it to be. Soulless means a great deal to me. It's a passion project that has spanned several great eras of my life, and is a portrait of who I was when I wrote the first script for the first issue several years ago, and who I am now. So I don't want to let it go without a fight. 

Which is why I'm here, again, thinking about returning to where it all began and taking to Kickstarter to produce the final 6 issues of the series. This would be a much larger task than just the pilot issue, and the outcome is far from certain. So that's what this post is all about. As the people who believed in me, right from the start, what do you think? Want to see Soulless finished? Would you be up for coming along with me an the next leg of the journey? Feel free to send me your feedback. Just as it was from the start, the future of Soulless is in your hands.
