Hey all. I wanna thank everyone who came out to greet me at Ithacon this past weekend. It was nice (and a bit surreal) to meet people who already knew what Tails was. Weird. Now, some quick news and notes:
- The numbers came in for Tails: Book One. Not great, but not terrible either (pretty much what you'd expect in a crap economy combined with the cover price). The good news is, it'll definitely see print. My publisher and I are still hammering out the details, and you might even see yours truly just take over the printing responsibilities, which means the book will be more aligned with my personal vision.
- Met a really cool webcomic artist by the name of TL Collins. He does an awesome webcomic entitled Bullfinch. Check it out. He's a Syracuse native, so if any of you in that area need some illustration work, he's your guy. Go Orange!!!!
- Some of you might've noticed that I've recently added social-networking buttons on the top-right corner of the homepage. God, I feel like some really old geezer who has finally discovered the VCR or something. At any rate, feel free to push those buttons =)
That's it for now. If you haven't already, pre-order Tails: Book One!
There's still time to pre-order Tails: Book One on amazon.com, everyone. Only $8.50 for 160 pages of pure awesomeness! Ok, now that I've got that shameless bit of self-promotion out of the way, some news and notes:
- Haven't gotten a chance to see the premiere of Walking Dead yet. Truth be told, I was starting to get a bit let down towards the end of the last season (or half-season). It's still a phenomenally well-made show, but the method-y acting just got worse and worse with each episode. Seriously, how many times can you take a deep breath, look sideways, and then jolt forward to deliver a line in dramatic fashion? It reminded me of later seasons of LOST or BSG, where every character began resembling a caricature of themselves. But that's just me complaining as usual. And speaking of Walking Dead...
- How many of you have caught up with the current lawsuit between the original artist, Tony Moore, and Robert Kirkman? It's a bit disheartening to hear, because I always figured that The Walking Dead was one of those fairy tale success stories, where everyone walked off happily ever after. Now money has torn a rift between childhood friends. I even mentioned TWD last year in my blog, using that comic as a shining example of how collaborations in comics can work.
- I might be doing a signing in NYC at Forbidden Planet for Comeback Kings. The second issue is due out later this month, along with a second printing of issue 1. I know, I know, it came out VERY late, but this is what happens when distributors and publishers don't get everything 100% organized. I'll keep you updated on all that.
