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.




Starts in 31 days.

We’re still playing the waiting game with the publishers, but hopefully that will end and we’ll have something in negotiations soon.

I have a writer’s conference/symposium/shameless self-publicity event at the Escondido Library on July 25th, where I’ll be plugging the comic and avoiding the worst day of Comic-Con. Go me!

Oh, I also set up a personal Facebook account…yeah, just throwing that out there.

Hope to see you at Comic-Con.



Update: No One Cares About Big Foot!

OK, well, that may not mean anything, and I got it from Tourette’s Guy.

Anyway, Monica is getting ready to take off to France for a month or so and I’m still working on the eighth issue script.

Just thought I’d post an update so that you knew we weren’t dead, held hostage, or fell in the toilet last week.




Sorry it’s been a while, but we’ve been busy with finals and trying to have a life outside of school and the comic book, if possible.

I just finished scripting issue 7. Two new characters show up, and the fates of two others are set in motion.

I know I haven’t been keeping script updates here, but as I finish up issue scripts, I’ll let you all know with a little teaser like the one above.

And it is exactly 2 months until Comic-Con 2009.



News from Tyler

Well, some good news for this guy. In a sense, this has been a long time coming, but really, it validates all the time I’ve spent away from my awesome and understanding wife.

First, I now have an agent after 14 years of writing and suffering rejection, both from agents/editors/publishers, and myself, of my work. I finally feel like I’m growing into myself as a writer and my career as a writer.

Second, I was admitted into Arizona State University’s Creative Writing BA program. I only applied to ASU and got in on the first shot. I woe my preparedness to my professors at MiraCosta College in Oceanside for helping me get there.

And third, the coolest part of all, at least academically speaking: I was accepted into Barrett, The Honors College at ASU. I was worried about my GPA being too low for their admissions standards, but this appears to be one of those times when it’s better to be lucky than good.

With these developments, I will be busy as all get out. Never fear, though: the comic book is going strong and Monica has been busting her ass to get the art handled. Seriously folks, without her constantly keeping me updated on what she’s working on and asking me to give her images and details to help her, my head would be up my ass with school work. So please, leave a comment of appreciation for her, ’cause without her, well, like I’ve said before, the book would just be a document on a hard drive.

I’m off like a prom dress to work on research projects on comic books for two classes.



A message from Tyler

Something came up over the last weekend and I feel it needs to be addressed.


With the recent and rapid media blitz on us, as well as dealing with an agent, we haven’t had much time to talk about these developments in any real depth other than rapid and excited short conversations through email and over the phone. However, now that we’ve had a chance to let some of this absorb into our brain housing group, the issue of credit and who gets it reared its head.

First off, I only write the story. Yes, this book was spawned from the ether of my mind, but I ONLY WRITE the story. I’ve been the one out front working with the media, and that’s fine, but make no mistake: I am just the writer and one of the two creators.

Second, Monica is the reason the book is where it is. Without her artwork, the story would just be a script on a hard drive. Her artwork brings the story that I’ve written to life, and for that, I am grateful. Also, her art is her’s: she owns the copyright on all of the images, so if you want to use them or whatever, you’ll have to talk to her about it, not me.

I don’t want anyone to get the idea that this is entirely my project and “baby.” I am working with three excellent artists to make this happen, and they deserve more credit than I do because without them, this would be, again, a document on a hard drive. instead, these three people have brought it to life.

Everyone should know that this is a group project, and while I may have written it, it by no means is all about me. We have all played a significant role in the execution of the idea, and for that, everyone deserves credit.

As for future media dealings, Monica and I will both be handling them to ensure that the entire project is presented, not just my point of view.

Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you at Comic Con in July.

Your friend,
