Clown Fight Review

Dale Wilson over at BuyIndieComics.com was kind enough to review Clown Fight last week. I met Dale at the Long Beach Expo back in May and his enthusiasm for indie comics was so wonderful to see that I immediately had to check out his website when I got home. The site, Buy Indie Comics, is great at spotlighting creator owned books and offering up articles on making indie comics by the creators themselves. Go on over and check out his Clown Fight review!

Freak Scene - LA

Rob and I recently went to Freak Scene LA at Synchronicity. Friday, July 6th was the opening night of the exhibition and it's scheduled to show through the rest of the month. We stopped by to support some of the artists we admire, including our friend Shalo P whom we first met at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco last year. Rob picked up a few zines as well, a sketch book by Jim Rugg called Notebook which was designed to resemble a spiral bound notebook, and a wonderful Popeye inspired mini comic by Tom Neely called Doppelganger.

It was a great turnout, lots of people mingling and admiring the gallery pieces. The following day they had live performances by Tom Neely, Josh Bayer, Pat Aulisio, Victor "Bald Eagles" Cayro, Keenan Marshall Keller & Shalo P just to name a few. All in all, it was a cool event that allowed these underground artists to really shine.

Emerald City Comic Con 2013

It's still a long way off (March 1-3, 2013 to be exact), but I'm really excited to say that we're confirmed to exhibit at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle. For years I've only heard great things about this show and have tried hard to attend, even going so far as to apply for press passes twice before (my day job is in television). The timing of the show hasn't worked out for me in the past, but that's all going to change next year. We'll be set up in Artist Alley, mixed in with what is already looking to be a great line-up of creators. Hopefully we'll also be able to squeeze in some time to explore the city while we're there. We'll post more info as the show nears, but in the meantime we'll be busy making comics for our Emerald City debut!

Pluto Moon Base: Colored Pages

Things are moving along nicely with Pluto Moon Base, though there's still a lot to do before it's completed. Just thought I'd give a quick update with some freshly colored pages by the talented Michael Garland. If you haven't seen it yet, Michael's doing amazing work on the Jonathan Hickman written series "Secret," published by Image Comics. Do yourself a favor and check out that great series.

Next up for Pluto Moon Base, time to find a letterer.
