Random Ink #3 PREVIEW: Part 1

"Useless Words" preview

So, for quite a while now I’ve been wanting to share with you what we have in the works, but I wanted to wait until things were closer to completion. Well, we’re getting pretty close now, so here goes…

We’re gearing up for our usual two conventions (HurleyCon and Planet Comicon) in March, and preparing at least two new books for release then. Random Ink #3 is going to be coming out, featuring stories by all four of us. The preview image above shows some random panels from my main story in the book, “Useless Words.” It tells the story of a man who just found out that the moon is falling to the earth and has to deal with the panic of knowing the world is about to end. This was originally made for a comics anthology that was to feature stories all set in the same situation.  I’m glad it’s finally going to see print!


Random Ink #3 PREVIEW: Part 2

"First Impressions" Preview Page 1 "First Impressions" Preview Page 2

Here you can see two random pages (minus dialogue) from the longest story in Random Ink #3, “First Impressions.”  It was written by Elton and me and drawn by Matt.  It picks up immediately where the Sir Knight story in Random Ink #1 left off.  He has been taken from the past to the future and given a mission in the present.  Unfortunately, his first experience in modern day is not a peaceful one.

Matt is really coming into his own with his art on this story, kicking it up a notch in both detail and action.  It’s been a blast to see his take on our characters!  I know you all are going to enjoy it.

Remember, we’ll be premiering this issue at both HurleyCon (in Joplin on March 6) and Planet Comicon (in Kansas City on March 27 & 28).


Random Ink #3 PREVIEW: Part 3

Here you can see pages from the third story from this issue.  Dusty has been planning his Pixie Pirates story for quite a while, and this six-pager is a prologue that sets up the tale to follow.  Why are they called the Pixie Pirates?  Well, you will see soon enough…

The exciting thing about this issue is it is truly the first time all four of us have contributed fairly evenly to an issue!  Hopefully that will be the case more often than not.

Random Ink #3 and Sketchings #3 have both been sent to the printer.  You can pick one up from us at HurleyCon and Planet Comicon.  The Random Ink stories will be posted to that site starting very soon.  You’ll also be able to order them at the Indy Planet store… we’ll let you know when they’re available on there.

Stay tuned!
