#692: Lockdown, Part Two

Just a reminder: Those of you who missed out on the Kickstarter fundraiser can still help support the production of Book 2 via the Multiplex Store (and PayPal). These are only available for a limited time! I'm not sure how limited, but we're talking a matter of weeks, not months.

I spent last week cranking out a large illustration project that will help keep my bills paid for the next several months, so I'll be able to start drawing the last two bonus strips for Chapter 7 this week and hopefully get out the finished Chapter 7 eBook before the end of the month, as planned.

While I am paying myself a modest "salary" from the funding raised through Kickstarter and the Multiplex Store, at this point — with over $17,500 raised after Kickstarter, Amazon, and PayPal fees — I'm paying myself less than minimum wage, so I am supplementing my income with some other work. The more money we raise, the less I need to do that… and (fringe benefit!) the more I can do three strips a week of the regular comic — like I'm doing this week, as a matter of fact. Hopefully, I'll even get caught up and can start toning these things again, but for the time being, the hand-drawn stuff will just be inked.

Thanks for reading, everybody, and… see you Wednesday!

Mae Volume One is now available… and I have a comic in it!

Friday, February 17, 2017

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.

BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!

If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:

When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.

I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
