Needless to say, things have changed. A lot of people are working from home right now maybe even not working at all. This is a strange time.
But! Let’s try to stay focused and positive! I’m not going to send along any handwashing tips because I think I’ve gotten about a hundred of those already. I had my first show of the year in Rock Island, IL last weekend. Saturday was well attended and the people that did come were enthused and had a great time. My next show, Indiana Comic Con, has been suspended for now and I’m waiting to hear on when it will be rescheduled. After that I have 2 shows in Minnesota in May. Who knows where we will be at that time. A better place, I hope! Minneapolis has become a bit of a home away from home for me. Great town!
This has thrown my Kickstarter into a bit of a tailspin but I also have a little more time to get it done and done right. The original launch date was March 23rd, but I’m going to push it back to April. The tentative date is April 9th but stay tuned.
The new cover looks amazing!
There will be some awesome digital rewards available, including S & S script pages, previews into Issue #3 as well as a sample from my supernatural gangster story, Chicago Overcoat. I’m also going to offer TONS of ORIGINAL ART for you collectors out there. Chris Ehnot’s original pencils and original inks will each be available as well as some other surprises that are currently in the works. Very excited to get this going!
In other news, I just finished Gideon the Ninth.
If you’re into science fantasy, necromancy, sword dueling, mystery and no small share of comedy, then you’ll love this book! The story is about a ghoulish necromancer and her sword arm or, in the book, cavalier. The Ninth House is home of dreary shadow cultists and animated skeletons but the cavalier considers it all a bunch of nonsense and just wants to break stuff. It’s a great time and… we all might have a little extra reading time on our hands.
That said, I have a ton of comics to get caught on. I’m even behind on my beloved Immortal Hulk. What have you been reading lately? I’m always up to check out something new and interesting.
Hope you’re doing well, keeping healthy and keeping sane. I’ll have another update soon. Thanks again for reading Spectress & Sabanion!
P.S. What does everyone think of the new CageyComics.com? Any suggestions? Anything else you think would be cool to see up there? I’m open to suggestions.
