THE GRAVE: ISSUE 1, PART 1 [Mar. 3rd, 2008|01:03 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
[Tags|]



Well, as promised, here is the finished (subject to later revisions of course) produkt of Issue 1, Part 1, of the series I've been working on for almost 2 years, The Grave. This never would have even gotten this far were it not for the timely arrival of Michael Bramley (explodingsuns), who decided he liked this so much he wanted to draw it, after I'd already pretty much binned it after 3 previous artists douched out on me.

I realize this is probably rough around the edges, both writing-wise and artistically, so if nothing else, please consider this a "pilot" episode.

Issue 1 Part 2, and any subsequent episodes, will be posted when ready.

And now...

Wow. You gonna have a website for this? Coz it deserves as much exposure as you can get for it.

Badass.

Right now it's a guerilla campaign. Posting links where I can, I've also put this on my ComicSpace page and posted it to Mark Millar's message board, that has a Creative section (which is actually how Michael found me). Michael's also making some rounds as well.

Yes, and there's more to come of this, and I hope, other projects for both myself and Michael in this crazy biz we wanna be in...

Strange, there really hasn't been MORE of it, y'know? Even in the post-Civil War Marvel stuff we haven't seen too much of it, I thought for sure...
