Happy New Year to all! I can't believe another year has gone by already, but I have to say I'm not sad to see 2008 go, lol. It's been a tough year for everyone I think, and the state of our nation has been a mess with elections, big biz corruption, the economy, etc.. But I'm optimistic about 2009 and truly think it will be a great year for us all.

For myself, it's been a bit of a hectic year with ups and downs and setbacks on different projects. I made it part of my resolution to have at least two of the projects I've been working on come out this year. Of course, first and foremost is the long talked about NEVERMINDS. I know, I know, I've said it all before, but believe me, it'll be out this year. Then there is the project I mentioned that I was developing with Teyo. It still doesn't have an official name, but the title we've been using for fun/referral is ROACH. I'm not sold on it (the title) just yet, but once I have some sketches to post and I tell everyone the basics about the story, maybe I'll have a poll to vote on the name?
So, those are the two books I promise/resolve to get out this year. But there are a few other things in the works.

One is of course CASPIAN CURSES with Luciano Vecchio. We have this all plotted out and character sketches have been re-worked. It's all just a matter of finding the time to finish it. Luciano is a busy busy guy and is currently working on the third OGN in the series called CRUEL THING that I mentioned many times on here. It's an awesome looking book and I'm really happy to see it in print. Bravo, Vecchio. After that Luciano is booked up with another project and then (hopefully/possibly) he will see if he can work CASPIAN CURSES into his schedule. I hope so because it'll really be a different type of books from us and kind of unique I think.

There is another OGN I am working on too, but not enough is done to start plugging it yet, but...there is also a possibly that we might be doing another SENTINELS Anthology by the year end. :)

The sketch with this post is of Alanis from NEVERMINDS by Jamie Fay! Hope everyone had a great and Happy New Years!

Wow Rich you got a lot on your plate. I'm really looking forward to Neverminds. Feels like decades ago that you first told us about it. Can't wait to hear more about "ROACH" mainly cause I really liked Teyo's art. Good luck with all that and a happy New Year.
