Blood Drive

You know, I really thought the rest of the year was going to be pretty chill. After Cincy and Other World, my schedule was clear and I fully planned on spending the rest of the year just making comics and playing a lot of Fallout 4. Turns out that's not the case and there are a few more vile machinations to play out before we close out this year. First off:

Nowhere #3 is now available.

Just got the first batch in from the printer and they're good to go. You can order your own signed copy over at the store. I've also submitted the digital version to ComiXology and it's been approved, but it always takes a while for it to actually go up on their store. I'll let you all know when it becomes available.

If you hate online shopping, are terrified of your mailman, or just HAVE to get the book from me personally, you're in luck because...

I will be showing at Full Bleed 2: A Comic Art Showcase

Officially the last show of the year. I'll be showing a bunch of my work and slinging comics at a gallery show dedicated to sequential art. A whole bunch of my indie comic homies will be there as well, so it will be where the happenin' be happenin'. It's December 5th, at the International School of Comics in Chicago. Or just click this sentence for more info.

And finally ... we're launching a Kickstarter for Scratches

I've been nervous about the idea of launching a crowdfunding campaign for my work before, mainly because I'm a self-loathing bastard, but Leo, Angel, Jon and I thought this would be the best way to help get the word out about the book. The art is wrapping up and the goal of the Kickstarter will be to fund the first print run. We've got a bunch of awesome rewards planned including original pages, extra books, and commissions from the four of us. Basically we want to get people excited for the book while keeping our financial goals humble. We just shot a bunch of footage for the pitch video last weekend. It was bloody.

The video is being put together as I write this and we plan to launch the Kickstarter in the next week or so. I mainly want to let you all know about it in advance because 1) There's a bunch of limited rewards, so you're gonna want to get on that early. And 2) if we can get as many people jumping on this as early as possible, it'll greatly improve the chances of our campaign succeeding.

So yeah, heads up on that. I'll be posting an official launch date once we have it locked down, so keep an eye out for that.

Stay tuned,
