Too long, and more to announce

Folks, I am too sorry to even be here typing. It seems as though every time I type here, or post something, it’s been forever, so I won’t apologize anymore and we can all agree that I’ll be better about being a good friend. Awesome, moving on.

 

A few things, house cleaning, announcement stuff etc.

Vile is complete. The story of Hard Pants and Clem Styles has been told in graphic novel form. It was arduous, but it is finally complete. The team was up late into the night filing and editing and shifting and coloring. I wish I could say I was one of those people-my parts were done, and I was playing the role of oaf and being hard to get a hold of on the last day of deadline. Sorry again my dear friends Eleonora and Dyan.

PLEASE and pretty please preorder and tell your local comic store to carry Vile: Legends of Thunder Valley. It’s as independent as it gets and comics aren’t cheap to make. Indie Comics are never easy easy in any way. The finished book is 60+ pages of western-fantasy goodness.

You can trust this link and follow it to preorder the finished tale.

 

If you want to read the comic that started it all, it’s available here at Comixology and print on demand here. I’ll be posting some teaser pictures here over the coming days and getting ready for a couple of comic conventions, so, stay tuned. I promise to write more. Oh, speaking of teaser art, the featured image here is a western style scene from Vile. It features a character named Masterson Kline from the story. Antonio Brandao did an amazing job bringing his character to life and helping to define him and the other characters in the story. Anyway! Anyone is welcome to use it for non commercial uses. If anyone is interested in using art form the book as wallpaper for their computers, or home :).

Eleonora Dalla Rosa did the amazing colors on the previously described art too.

 

Oh, and we have prints coming today as well as a revised updated edition of Vile coming tomorrow, which is the amazing Black Sparrow’s B-Day. Happy Birthday love.

 

That’s it for now I think.

Vile and Richard to appear at Central City Comic Con 307

So, thanks to my new pal Miles Greb, of ‘After the Gold Rush’ fame, I’ll be attending Central City Comic-Con in Yakima, WA. October 14th-16th.

I’ll have some of the first issue of Vile: Legends of Thunder Valley, so great cards and some other goodies. Help support indie Comics and come see me.

Miles will be there and I’m sure it will be a great time. SO thankful for the opportunity to do my first con as a creator. Remember that we’re booth 307

 

Have a look at some teaser art for the finished One-shot tale that is releasing on Rats and Crows publishing in January 2017.

This Pretty Rocket Comic strip premier

My posts have been pretty sporadic. So much going on and I’ll post on those things soon enough. Right now, I want to announce the premier of my (hopefully) self created comic strip “This Pretty Rocket.” It’s going to be little silly stuff from my life. For the most part, everything will be real pictures that are horribly edited by myself. Hopefully I’ll become good enough to start drawing over the images and be able to do a comic strip without an artist. I have to be able to create and waiting on an artist can be a pain in the royal ass.It’ll often star The Black Sparrow. In fact, the first strip is from a trip we shared to Mt. Adams. Without all that ado…
