OUR PANEL SAID..... fright fans! The Christ-messy season is upon us~ In between coping with ice storms, record snowfalls, and avoiding being trampled at Wally world, I have actually been making steady progress on my comic.
The very latest is that I have only two pages left to draw, and ink. I have been putting final touches and lettering on many of the finished pages, and it looks like I will be on track for a mid winter printing.
"Hey dude.... why we no see pages Man?" You might say.
Well... nifty little story there: See recently I was going over the pages with my very bestus friend and we were discussing how close to completion it was, and how exciting that is. We were discussing that to blog anymore from here would be the equivalent of giving away the entire comic for free, and could impact sales. A very good point! Still..... me being me, I wanted to blog my progress for all you fearsome followers out there... ( all four of you ), so finally we hit upon a diabolical plan.
From here out I will show only isolated panels. MU-ha-haa-wha-ha-haaaaaa! INGENIOUS!
One more bit of info from the main offices of Mitchell Comics... I have decided to paint the cover. Yes you heard me...PAINT! It will be in the classic pulp style with the retro flavor of some of those great Gold Key comics of the 70's ( Ripleys ghost stories, Star Trek, Magnus, etc... ) Oh I cannot wait to get crack'n! The cover by the by, I will indeed post. In fact I will be hounding each and every one of you to post it on your sites, your blogs, your gym locker, your neighbors car... anywhere you might think it could lead to a sale.
Well... that's it for now Santas helpers.
Peace on Earth and all that good stuff~

Mike, I'm not sure that I like your bestus friend, he kept me from seeing a free comic on your blog. Boo, hoo.

Really, though that's a good idea not to show it all on the blog. Have fun with the painting and have a good Christmas Holiday thingie.

Jack- who said his bestus friend was a "he"? :-)

Have a great Christmas out there in California- we're already buried with snow here in New England.

Act-choo-you-lee,... my bestus friend is a "she" not a "he", and so far the painting is proving a little bit of challenge, but I'll get it, don't you pay no never-mind. Ya-ya... happy holiday thingy to you too~

Michelle, I think I'm the one that said Mike's bestus friend was a he, but I stand pleasantly corrected. I didn't know that best friends could be she's. This opens a whole new world for me.
