I met Ben Bishop a few years ago at the NYC Comicon and he did a kickass sketch for me back then. This year at NYCC, Ben was seated right next to me, so of course, I hit him up for another sketch. Ben's style and pencils have matured a lot and I love his rendition of Splash from SENTINELS Book 4: Hope. His work seems to have gotten much more detailed too. So, it's no surprise that at this year's NYCC, it was announced that Ben is working along with Jim Krueger (of Earth X and Justice fame) on a new series called "The Stand In". It looks like it's going to be really great and I'm truly happy that Ben is getting noticed. He deserves the recognition! Check out more of Ben's work at http://bishart.net/ .

Life got pretty busy recently, so I'm wayyyy behind in posting on the blog here. Sorry about that, but things seem to be in better control now and I hope to post more often again. The new puppy has been a lot of work, so I'm still trying to balance taking care of her, work and all my comic projects. Or maybe I'm just getting old is all, lol.
Anyway, there are so interesting new things in the works. I can't say much just yet, but soon, I promise!
We plan to have NEVERMINDS ready for sale by December so that it can get out to people by the holidays. It's looking great, Jamie and Rey just need to finish up a few things.
And on my last post (see below) I mentioned the possibility of seeing some SENTINEL statues made, it's still not definite by any means, but that's just because we need more of you to vote! It seems to be a little competitive getting these made and we've even had some people give us low scores just to keep us down. So, go over there are vote if you're interested. Details are in the post below this one.
I hope everyone has a great holiday week!

I'm really excited to show the designs for the first two SENTINELS statues we've submitted to PatchTogether. PatchTogether is a toy company who gears toward original and new designs. They haven't done a ton of work yet, but from what I have seen made, their work is very, very nice! They picked up to submit our designs and based on fan reaction, they will decide if they will make them or not. We'd love to see that happen. So, anyone who agrees and would like to see these statues become a reality, go to the website linked below, register and vote for Firebomb and Harlette to be manufactured as awesome statues designed by Luciano Vecchio! It only take a few minutes. www.patchtogether.com
