TEST FLIGHT


A hale, and hearty, how-de-do there comic book fans, and fanettes... Boy do I got big doings to share with you folks! Seems a couple of weeks ago I went to a comicon in Boston and hooked up with a group called CAG ( the Comicbook Artist Guild ) I was seriously impressed with the talent in their ranks, and thought to myself "This is just the group of folks you need to be hanging with. " I forked over my membership dues lickity split, and soon found it paying off in spades!
In less than a months time I have landed two stories in two seperate publications, with two very promising, and talented writers! The page above is from a historical story by writer Robert Sodaro that deals with the first powered flight. It is a little known fact, but the very first powered flight took place nearly two years before Kittyhawk, and not by the gruesome twosome the Wright Bros. who actually stole their ideas from the hero of our story, a German imagrant by the name of Gustave Whitehead.
This story was selected to be included in the CAG annual comic featuring the years best Artists and Writers. Quite a huge honor since I have only been a member of this group for 30 days! I haven't read the script yet, but Robert gave me some research links to get me started, and since I had some time today I banged out the above page. I sent it off to him and his response was phenomenal, ( actually it was a string of happy and joyus explatives, but I'll spare the more sensitive among us ) he is just as excited as I am to get this baby up in the air.
Next time I'll post you guys some stuff related to my other project, a creepy, errie, scarry ghoul filled monster story....
Stay tuned Faithful viewers~
