Haha, not even a month into it and already I’m neglecting this bloody thing. BUT it is not without good reason, kind reader. I have been deep inside Lady Comics last we spoke, tickling her fancies and milking panel after panel of sticky, moist sequential sex out of her.
But seriously, it’s been both a productive and educational triplet of weeks. The biggest news I guess is the fact that my debut Marvel effort DEADPOOL #32, written by the ever talented Daniel Way, edited by the benevolent Jody Leheup, and art by me, me, ME goes on sale January 26th! So please check it out and let me know exactly what you think. If you told me three years ago I’d be drawing a Deadpool Issue, I’d tell you you were a filthy fucking LIAR. But, here we are.
I’m really excited, nervous and terrified to see what the mainstream audience thinks of it, but at the end of the day, I’m pretty effin stoked with how it turned out. There’s a preview up over at CBR here, but I’ve included some better quality colour previews for your pleasure. Page 3 actually features the unedited sound effect from panel 2 that sounded too much like the male ejaculate. Jody and I had some fun discussing alternatives for that one haha.
And as an extra treat, I thought I’d share the magical process of creation behind these pages. I haven’t had to draw thumbnails for a long LONG time, but as you can see, I do the bastards digitally, because I am a digital queen and have NO BALLS.
And speaking of new content…what’s this?
“Oh Hi”, indeed! My goodness how mysterious. All will be revealed eventually, I just don’t know when. Hush now…hush. All I can say is it won’t be what you’re expecting.
In news I can talk about, the boys over at DAPSHOW.com (i think their site is having a couple of issues currently) were kind enough to ask me to provide the cover to the third of their black as death comic anthology: GOTHOLOGY. Here’s what I came up with.
The creators behind DAPSHOW, and their number of anthologies are Justin King, and John…Something. I’ve known these kids long enough to call them brothers, and seeing them evolve from their humble beginnings on VOID into full fledged comic anthology editors brings me intense joy. The anthology itself in my opinion is a great success. They explore the gothic sub-culture through all lenses, from light-hearted and meaningfully-deep, to downright parody and nonsense. Which I find awesome. Because I think you’re more likely to take a topic seriously if it is the first to make fun of itself. I’m going to do my damndest to get an entry into them, and you should too. Check out this for submission details.
In other news, I recently had a VICIOUS spike in views on this blog, and it turns out none other than WARREN ELLIS plugged me on his site. I was pretty fucking humbled by this. However, Brandon Graham’s Livejournal is still my top referrer. BY A MIGHTY STRETCH. In fact, that’s how Warren, my Marvel editors, and a slew of other people have found my work. Through Brandon “Brrrrrrraaaaannnnndonnnnn” Graham’s fucking Livejournal. The guy is love, and I owe him. If you are unfamiliar with him, THEN FAMILIARIZE, BITCH!!
I realise I’ve been listening to Out in the Cold for 3 hours straight now, and these comics aren’t going to draw themselves, DAMMIT! So it’s time to say goodbye, but don’t be sad, it’s only a word. Until next time!! xoxo
