Well, as 2015 winds down, it seems like a good time to look back and look forward. This last year, we exhibited or spoke at five different events, some of them for the first time. We published the collected version of Duel, complete with dozens of new pages of backstory. (The images below are from the Lord Thornton Bartholomew’s story in that book.) Elton also published a sci-fi novel, and we created several new prints for the convention appearances.
What’s on tap for 2016? Well, in May we will once again be doing FREE COMIC BOOK DAY @ Hurley’s Heroes in Joplin.
PLANET COMICON in Kansas City is also moving to May this year, and we will be there for the ninth year in the row. In August, we have been invited back to the KANSAS CITY COMIC CON, and we are looking forward to year two of that show! There will probably be a few other appearances that pop up, but we will let you know as they develop.
What are we working on? Well, Elton is continuing work on his novels and is finishing up a new collection of short stories that will be published soon. We are working hard on Rook City #3 right now. The main story features the Vlad Squad and Toby Fox, and another tale in that issue will star the Captain and Dark Star. Once that issue is published, we will be collecting all three issues along with a lot of bonus content. We are also working on adapting all of our comics to digital format, so it will be easier for all of you to get a hold of them. Once Rook City is wrapped up, I will be starting a new long-term project (more details on that later). In addition to all of this, we will be continuing Random Ink with issue #5 later in the year.
If you are reading this, we want you to know that we really appreciate you following and supporting our work! It means a lot to know that you all are out there. Thanks!
