I thought I’d give a few updates on what’s been going on.
We had originally hoped/planned to have this issue done by last year’s NY Comicon. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen due to a number of reasons. But, Jamie Fay and Danielle Alexis St. Pierre are kicking butt with the pages and are hoping to finish in time for the 2012 Pittsburgh Comicon on April 20-22. Fingers crossed!!
Yes, it’s been almost three years since I first mentioned and began this graphic novel. To say it’s been killing me not having it out yet is an understatement. Believe me, it’s driving me crazy not having it complete yet! The artist on the book, Teyo, is doing really amazing work and I believe everyone will be impressed. The book should be done in the coming months and that would mean it will be out in the summer. Fingers double crossed!!
I mentioned a few times that we were toying with the idea of a second SENTINELS Anthology and hoped to get it started soon. We’re definitely doing it. For this one, we’re doing a few different things that I don’t want to mention just yet, but be sure that the book is being worked on and I already have some truly amazing art to show soon. Stay tuned!
I’ve mentioned on here a few times about the possibility of re-publishing SENTINELS in color. We’ve had a few companies interested, but then things didn’t work out. We haven’t given up hope yet though and SENTINELS artist, Luciano Vecchio, is still re-working and coloring pages when he has free time (which isn’t often as he’s a busy guy and in demand!). But this project might be a way off and not this year.
These are definitely happened and being made as I type!! I should have the prototypes soon and will post them here and on the Drumfish Facebook page when I have pictures. As I mentioned, we’re doing TWO statues. One from SENTINELS (Firebomb) and one from NEVERMINDS (Alanis Munroe). We’re only doing a limited run on these and hope they sell well enough to do other characters. (Suggestions?) The statues should be ready in time for the 2012 Pittsburgh Comicon and we’ll post ordering info soon.
This is still being worked on. This year for sure though.
This is my solo baby and yes, it’s been taking me a while to get to this. I couldn’t decide on what type of webcomic I wanted to do, but I’ve found something I really like. I’m still developing the characters and story and want to have as much as I can worked out before I start showing things. I’ll be writing and drawing this, so I want it to be good!
Yes, I actually do a few of these, lol. For a while, I stopped, but now I’m willing to open up my at home commissions. Just send me an email or drop me a note with requests. (I know some of you have written and I will reply today!) There are certain things I won’t do and there are certain things I don’t think I’m good at and would be best for another artist, but I’m open to doing some commissions again. So, let me know.
And finally, lol, last year I was fortunate enough to get asked to write something for DC Comics. It was a short ten page story for their Cartoon Network Action Pack comic (the same comic that SENTINELS artist, Luciano Vecchio did a few issues of) and was a story on Generator Rex. I had a LOT of fun writing the story and even got to create new villains for the book. The story was drawn, finished and even scheduled to be printed in issue #68. Of course, with luck like mine, lol, the book was cancelled with issue #67. Oh well, what can you do? I’m happy to at least have had the opportunity and to have done something I was proud of. I still got paid at least, lol.

There are a few other things in the works, but those are the main projects. Be patient with us, working full time jobs makes it difficult to get things done as fast as other creators do. But our passion to get these things out there to the masses is just as great. Thanks to anyone still checking in here for hanging with us!
