Issue Zero… full view! (prologue)

Hey there everyone! We thought it might be a good idea to put Issue 0 up on the blog. We couldn’t get copies printed in time for Comic-Con, and it’s a FREE and EASY way to see how our story gets started.

Let us know what you think.

Comic-Con…

is two weeks away. The nerds of the world (myself included) will descend on the San Diego Convention Center for 4 days of nerdy nirvana.

If anyone wants to meet up before preview night (Wednesday), Nessa and I will be picking up our tickets around 3-330p the 22nd. Otherwise, hope to see some friends out there before heading off to Arizona to roast my ass off.

Monica will be coming back in a week or so, just in time for Comic-Con, and that’s all folks.

Status Update 2.3.1.0.5.12.7.89.42

So Jon’s sent out submissions to quite a few places, and we still haven’t heard back from a few. We’re stuck now playing the waiting game, which is not much different from when I was in the military: hurry up and wait.

Anyway, here’s the list of the publishers our book is on submission with:

Fantagraphics
Kitchen Sink
Picture Box
Dark Horse
Image
Dynamite Ent.
Slave Labor
NBM–Already passed because they don’t do graphic work anymore, or something to that effect.
AIT/Planet Lar
Anarctic Press
Arcana Comics
Avatar Press
TwoMorrow
Top Cow

Some of these publishers, like Fantagraphics, Dark Horse, Image, Dynamite, Avatar, and Top Cow are fairly well-known, so there is a good chance that if we get a deal, it won’t be with a publisher that only has books in the bargain area of Barnes and Noble. However, some of the smaller publishers, like Slave Labor, AIT/Planet Lar, Kitchen Sink, et al would open our work up to a new audience, which would be a great thing for all of us, not to mention the exposure.

Hopefully we’ll get something coming in the next few weeks or months– I’d like to have a deal at least on the table and in negotiations before I bounce out to Arizona on August 2nd.

Anyway, that’s the latest.
