Just a quick update. Cash & Carrie only has 5 days left but we've surpassed our fundraising goal. Woohoo! Quite a few websites had contacted us to help promote the Kickstarter and we couldn't be happier. It's been pretty amazing and we're humbled by all the positive responses.
This past Saturday was FCBD and it was a hot one, but at least we scored some comics (free and not free). We saw a few friends, scoped out a few new titles and later went home to read our stash which included Fight Club 2, Motorcycle Samurai and Hip Hop Family Tree.
Cash & Carrie is a series that I've been working on since last year. It's about two junior high school friends, Dallas Cash and Inez Carrie, who solve mysteries in their small town. In the first issue, they investigate the strange disappearance of a school mascot, Misty the Goat. With the help of a few clues and a few friends, they narrow down their search to three possible suspects: the school principal, a rival football team and a fraternity brother. Or did Misty magically vanish into thin air?
The mover, the shaker, the editor Shawn Pryor got in contact with me and kickass artist Penny to do this all ages comic. All three of us collaborated on it and we could not be more proud.
The Kickstarter is currently under way until June 10th. There are reward tiers for variant covers, two Ginger Rabbit Studio digital comics: Golden Age and Clown Fight and later, a pdf copy of my script (scary I know 0_0). The best thing about this is that the story/art/design is almost completed, the only wait is for the printers.
Even though we're not tabling this year, we did have time to pop in, chat with friends and pick up some books at this year's WonderCon. It was quite busy for an Easter Sunday, much more so than last year. We did check out Action Lab's panel, where they talked about their current projects and what to look forward to in the future. Afterwards, we had limited time on the exhibition floor but managed to pick up some new indie titles that we can't wait to read.
It's a short story called, Daughter. It's about a high school girl in Calais, Maine who gets killed in cold blood. Her reputation was far from squeaky clean but she was still a person who deserved much more.
Morgan Beem did the excellent art and Shin-Wey Lu did the lettering.
If any of you lads are wondering if we're tabling at any shows this year, the answer is...no.
We're taking a break from setting up at conventions because a) it's exhausting b) it's expensive and c) we're taking the time to build new material. While we are writing, pitching and developing new stories we will be posting the occasional update or random tidbit from our exciting (read: dull) lives.
In the meantime, check back (or follow our Facebook page) for any recent news.
For the third year in a row we'll be tabling at Comikaze in Downtown Los Angeles! All weekend long (Oct 31st - Nov 2nd) we'll be set up in Artist Alley @ AA616. That also means this year's show falls on Halloween weekend, which should make for a really fun time!
