The first day plus a few hours

ASU is an odd joint, at least my French professor is. She’s like a crazy cat lady, nice as grandma, and as eccentric as Hunter S. Thompson. The only downside to the class is that I’m stuck with a bunch of kids right out of high school, and that puts me about 10 years older than everyone in the class.

Right, that lsat paragraph was not comic book related. But it does have an impact on the book: I will be back in the grind by the end of the week, but I’ll be back on track to finishing up the script.

Tyler’s in Arizona

Nessa and I made it in one piece to AZ.

School starts on the 24th and the last issue of the script will be finished right around then. Going to be getting back to work next week once everything around the joint has settled down a bit.

Nessa will also post up issue #0 again next week, so spread the word and have as many people possible check it out.

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.

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.

We have a logo!!

It seems I had a moment of genius yesterday, I was bored and drew up a little logo.
Here’s why:
We don’t have a booth for Comic Con because we are broke.
But we will be there! I mean hello! Comic Con!!!
Anyway, back on topic. We figured we would get some T-shirts made so people would know who we are and what we do as we give comics away. We figured it would be better to give away than to sell considering nobody knows us.
So we needed a logo, and I came up with this.
Land of Confusion Logo

It’s just a first draft, so I will work on making it cleaner and look more professional…
Hope you like it!

Comic Con

Hello, hello!

For the past four weeks, all the members of the group have been waiting to hear about the registration office at Comic Con. We needed to send them proof of being professionals in order to get a professional pass for the duration of the event. And then they needed to process the information.
To be truthful, Monica had started to loose hope and had resigned herself to not going; but wasn’t about to tell anyone until one of two things happened:
1. Comic Con had come and gone and we weren’t there.
2. and the reason for this post… WE GOT OUR PASSES TO COMIC CON!!!!!
WOOHOOHOOOOO!
Yes, I get excited when good stuff happens! Oh, and and I’m sick of the whole third person thing, so when you see a post written in the first person, you’ll know it’s me, Monica. Tyler does his thing… I don’t understand it, and quite honestly, I’m not sure anyone (including himself) does…
Now enough Tyler bashing! (although I never seem to be able to get tired of it, hmm…)

So that’s the great news of the day!
I am hard at work to bring to life the last few pages of issue 1, but to be honest, school and life tend to get in the way… But I can totally do it! YEAH!

That’s all folks!
