Nola Con Update!

Hey Guys!

We had a blast at Nola Wizard Con 2012. This was Donny and I's first con and we learn a lot, made some great new friends and got to hang out with our buddies!

The Vamped Preview, went over really well and we ran out very early on.

I was able to sell just under 60 books and sold all but one of the sketches I was doing while were there. All in all I think it was a great event and look forward to the next one.

I will continue to keep everyone up to date on the issue 5 and 6 produciton process, thanks for checking  us out!

It's that time again guys...

Well we got the comics ordered the banners ordered, business cards ordered, the table number (1106) and the hotel rooms booked for NOLA Con 2012...

Now we just have to bite our nails and sweat it out hoping the comics show up on time for the event or the whole thing is a bust *~*

I have faith that it will all work out but I'm still nervous none the less, anyways keep your fingers crossed for us and hopefully my next post will be photos of use and the books at the Con!

Gearing Up for Nola Con!

Hey Guys

I am hard at work here, in fact I have had tunnel vision for the kingdom for almost 2 years now. The fifth books line art is complete and the story has taken me for much further than I had expected and I am so happy with what this book has become, I have a basic outline done for issue 6 (which is gonna be a supersized issue by the way) and i am looking to go into full production for that book in the next few weeks.

In the mean time I just finished the 10th of 10 special sneak peek of the next project I am working on called "Vamped"! I had a little trouble going from animal people to people...people but I feel good about what I've done and I cant wait to share what Donny and I are working on at Nola Con. We will have 200 free comic previews of issue 1, but dont fret if you can't make it we'll have the preview available on the website as well.

So if your in the New Orleans area make sure you guys swing by I will have issues 1-4 for sale for the Kingdom and we will have free copies (1 per person, while supplies last)!

See you guys there!

Line art for Issue 4 is complete!

Happy Friday Guys!

I have finally completed the line art for issue number 4 of the kingdom! This issue was actually 24 pages long, instead of the usually 22 which I feel will become the norm for the last 3 issues. I had a lot of fun with this one, and cant wait till it goes to print.

I decided the first version of this issues cover was boring, for one and didnt really look like Pale so I redid that as well (see above) and Im really happy with the way it came out. I hope you guys enjoy the sneak peak of the the cover, and will help me out by sharing this post on your facebooks!

Always trying to spread the word about the project!
Thanks Guys!

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, however it is due to my made dash to completing issue number 4 as well as some other big news.

I am very happy to announce the official launch of the Kingdom website where you’ll be able to purchase all 6 books as they are completed. The first 3 are available now! (I’m working on a shopping cart that will combine shipping, please bar with me ^_^.  Issue 3 has arrived and will be going out to the higher level kickstarters, so look for it in your mail box within the next week!
I want to thank Chris Smith of for lending his great graphic design and programming skills to getting the site up and running!

Finally I want to feature an incredible important Kickstarter project by my friend Noel Burns who publishes the Kingdom as well as several other fantastic Titles. He is on a mission to bring Indie comics to Brick and Mortar stores all over the country which would really revolutionize the industry and allow books that would otherwise fall through the cracks share the same shelf space as the big boys, I really hope you guys will check out his Kickstarter and support what he is trying to do, thanks again to everyone!

Happy New Year Guys!

Happy New Year Guys!

Well I got in the proofs for the first 2 issues and I must say it is such a surreal experience to hold the actual comic books in my hands. There a few little technical tweaks I have to make along with the inserts for the insides of the front and back cover (which are done, they just haven’t been uploaded) and we should be good for the first projection run! I’ll post images as soon as I get the first run in my hands!
If you haven’t reserved a copy via Kickstarter you can message me via kickstarter or facebook.

Thanks again!
