Busybusy! Lots of things to talk about today, but let’s start with the big news: the Kickstarter hit $5k! Actually, as of this posting, it’s up to $5,239 with 23 hours still to go. Thank you ALL SO MUCH for your support!
This, of course, means a 54 page trade containing three issues in one, written as a self-contained story-arc. Originally it was just going to be one issue, then it became two, but with three I’ve decided to make it a full story as opposed to just the first issue or two in a bigger, longer story. That means LOVE KILLS, the first story-arc I had planned, is being shelved and bumped back as it will take at least six to eight issues to tell. Instead I’ll be doing A VOICE IN THE DARK, a three-part storyline about Zoey’s first days away at college, her radio show, and her attempt to use it as a way to stay sane and safely contain her darkness. This will be more of an introductory arc that will spend a bit more time developing the foundations of the bigger series rather than jumping head first into a major, lengthy plot. Hopefully you’ll like it!
In other news, page 8 is toned and finished, making it 3 pages already in the can – 1, 7, and 8. It took me about 6 hours in total to do from layout to tones and lettering. I spent 4 hours on it on Friday night, and 2 more on Saturday finishing the toning. Here it is!
I’ve also finished all four of the pinups I’m offering as prints (I’m still brainstorming on what the super-rare fifth print the $100 backers get will be!), and have included them below.
I think that covers it for now. Thanks again to everyone who has helped to make this happen!
