Letters Now Finished

3 likes

So, the pages are now provisionally complete! Gavin has finished lettering the book! We've sent the completed comic off to Steve Jackson for his final approval, and are in the process of finishing getting it all assembled for the printers. Pending any final edits requested by Steve, it will be ready to print very soon indeed. We're also getting the other rewards ready to go, including the extra print I promised to every backer with a physical reward, and the character sketches of those of you who have been drawn into the book.

A couple of people have messaged asking if they can still update their addresses, and yes, you can. I'll be leaving surveys open right up until the last minute, so we can make sure everyone's details are as up to date as possible when we send the books out.

Finally, as some of you will no doubt already be aware, Jonathan Green has launched a Kickstarter for You Are the Hero Part 2! A sequel to his original coffee table book celebrating thirty years of Fighting Fantasy, this new book will act as a supplement to the original, featuring all-new material about the Fighting Fantasy franchise as it celebrates its thirty-fifth anniversary. The book is already fully funded on Kickstarter, and is now very close to unlocking the first stretch goal, a brand new cover from Fighting Fantasy and Doctor Who art legend, Chris Achilleos! It will also feature an interview with myself and Gavin about Trolltooth Wars. Head over to the Kickstarter page, and pledge your support!

Hello all.

As of this update, The Trolltooth Wars has been completely coloured. In terms of pencils, inks and colours, every single page is finally finished, and they look stunning. Here's a few previews for you.

Gavin's now lettering the book, a process which won't take long at all. We'll then make any minor edits which are required, then send the book to the printers.

Thanks all.

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a great Christmas, and are looking forward to a fun new year.

To let you know where we are with the book, 87 out of the 132 pages have now been fully coloured. A further load of the remaining 45 pages have been flatted as well, so we're moving ever closer to finally completing the book and getting it in your hands.

I thought I'd share a few more coloured panels (some of which you will have already seen in black and white), plus a a few full pages, to whet your appetites.

A Few Colour Panels

4 likes

Hey all,

I thought I'd share some of the colour panels from the book that have been coming in. With Gavin and Jim working on different parts of the comic, the pages aren't actually being coloured in order, so these panels are from different places throughout the graphic novel. Things are moving quickly now, and we're hopeful that the book will be ready to go to the printer soon.

Thanks everyone.

 

 

 

 

Pencils and Inks Completed

9 likes

Yes, I can finally report that Gavin has finished drawing all one-hundred and thirty-two pages of Steve Jackson's The Trolltooth Wars. They're all pencilled, and all inked. Now, that doesn't mean we're finished, but we are close. There are around 70 pages left to fully colour and letter (some of these have already been flatted, and are only awaiting more detail), but since this is generally a much faster process than the pencils and inks, and we have a team working on it rather than just Gavin, we're hopeful this work will be completed quickly. At the same time as this is being done, Mike Stock is continuing to design the book itself for us, so that we can bring the whole thing together as fast as possible.

I'll keep you posted as to the progress of the final stages of the book, and will show you some of the coloured and lettered pages as they come in too.

Thanks all.
