The Guestbook works again. Sign it HARD.
I'll be redesigning the look and changing some of the content
of the site over the next few months. I may continue to update
the current sections before they're redesigned.
I've added a Previews section to the site to focus on projects
I have in developement. There's a link over to the left or
you can click here.
I also added a link to the big title banner at the top of
this page to track recent site updates.
Report from MoCCA
The super special MoCCA edition Gritty Tales
preview books sold out and I sold or traded all the copies
of Grizzled Comics Presents: It Vomits Dreams I'd brought.
So that was good.
I also talked a bit with Robbie Robbins of
IDW Publishing whose table was next to mine. Hell of a nice
guy, that Robbie Robbins.
My free time was spent bugging Jim Mahfood
about his lettering and word balloons.
A couple of local shop owners picked up some
stacks of my books for distribution. New Yorkers can get Grizzled
Comics, while they last, at the following locations:
Grizzled Comics Presents: It Vomits Dreams
is available at
Jim Hanley's Universe
4 West 33rd Street
New York, NY
Gritty Tales of Espionage and Danger MoCCA
Preview Book is available at
229 Bedford Ave
Gritty Tales will be available online sometime
soon. I'll also be redesigning parts of the site, working
on an eight or nine page story for Mark Stinson's new book
at Void Pulp Press and hopefully putting out a three or four
page story for the CCN's third anthology, Show and Tell #3.
The first two pages of the new book with text are now online.
I probably won't have time to put anymore up before I leave
on the 23rd. Take a look.
Put up a draft of a two-page spread from the new book. See
Added a new image to the makeshift Gritty Tales preview page.
I have the first page of the new book inked, and cleaned up
and I'll be damned if it doesn't look nice. Later I'll add
all the text, labels, room numbers, and parking lot signage.
The preview is here.
The nine pages of pencils for the book I'll be taking to MoCCA
are complete. I'll begin inks later today. A small portion
of one of the pages is viewable in the sketchbook section
of this site. More previews are to come.
For anyone who lives in the Kansas City area, Grizzled Comics
Presents: It Vomits Dreams is now available for purchase at
B-Bop Comics. It will be on the shelves for sixty days (longer
if it sells). What better way can you imagine to spend two
B-Bop Comics, Games & Anime is located
at 3940 Main, Kansas City, MO 64111 (816) 753-2267
Availability will widen once I have time to make the rounds
I found a picture at the The Pitch's website of some strangers
standing in front of the pages I had hanging at the Sequence
show. I know the guy on the left is not me. I don't own any
shirts with big sports numbers on them. Who could these strangers
05.03.2004 - I'll be at New York's
MoCCA Art Festival this year peddling a nine-page preview
of Gritty Tales of Espionage and Danger if I finish it in
time. Otherwise I'll just be sitting there.
The CCN's Sequence show will take place May 7th and 8th. There
will be several small-press comics for sale with original
pages hanging in the galleries. Work from It Vomits Dreams
will be on display and Grizzled Comics Prsents: It Vomits
Dreams will be available for two sweet dollars. More information
about the show here.
SPACE 2004 went as well as could be expected. I made a groundbreaking
thirteen dollars and traded for a lot of good comics.
I'll be in Ohio this weekend sitting at a table for SPACE
2004. There I'll be selling 50 freshly minted copies of Grizzled
Comics Presents: It Vomits Dreams. The mini-comic contains
It Vomits Dreams and a story about babies. HOLY SHIT! PAPER
DOLLS INCLUDED. Come get them while they're hot, baby.
Yesterday I completed the five page story It Vomits Dreams
to be published in the Network's second anthology. It's available
in the comics section of THIS VERY WEBSITE.
I've begun work on a new five-page story for the Network's
second anthology. The story is titled It Vomits Dreams. Get
a glimpse of it.
Stinson over at Void Pulp is attempting to put together a
large collection of free comics online (I believe the goal
is 1000 pages by the end of 2004.) The first two chapters
of Grizzled Comics are available there as well as a nine-page
story i did for the Network's second twenty-four-hour-comic-anthology.
I only spent ten hours on mine and it suffers from a troublesome
lack of onomatopoeia, but you can read it there or in the
comics section of this site.
The story which made it's way into the CCN anthology was not
the one mentioned below. Instead I contributed a one page
John Wayne Dixon very short story. Information on the Kansas
City Comic Creator's Network Show and Tell anthology can be
found here, as well as information on the Network's 24 Hour
Comic anthology to which I also contributed.
News indeed. I am currently working on a five page John Wayne
Dixon story for the Kansas City Comic Creator's Network annual
anthology. A rough draft of the script is posted here. After
the completion of that little peach I will begin work on Gritty
Tales of Espionage and Danger #1 which will, among other things,
account the continued exploits of John Wayne Dixon.
More on that as it progresses.
The first two chapters of Grizzled Comics are now online.
Take a gander.
Due to excessive time spent preparing Grizzled Comics for
print and peddling at the Kansas City Planet Comicon, the
online comic is still not online. It will be up no later than
I'll be damned. While moving Grizzled Comics Online to a new
web-space, I decided to use my superb html vocabulary to redesign
the whole site. It should be back up and running any time
before April. The comic should be the first thing up. Just
sit tight, my imaginary fanbase.
Chapter one of Grizzled Comics is now online. Get the dirty
thrust of it here. If you would like to be notified when chapter
two becomes available, and I very much think you should like
to, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grizzled Comics Online is now somewhat operational. There
are no comics here yet, but come back on the 15th and I'm
sure there will be something so complex and amazing you'd
think the Japanese designed it.
