I apologize for the long periods of silence. I would like to post a new blog entry every day–I really would. My current work load, however, makes that extremely difficult. I will do my best to update more frequently. I promise.
Anywho, I don’t know if you’ve seen this or not, but Publisher’s Weekly has a wonderfully informative article on print vs. profit. Whether you’re a creator or simply a comic book fan, this is a wonderful “inside look” at the realities of creator-owned comic books. You can read it HERE.
The article doesn’t take the possibility of optioning a property for adaptation into another medium into account, but I think we can all agree that those chances are not great, and definitely not something you can count on.
If you follow my TWEETS, you are aware that I’m currently working on a new work-for-hire gig. I have been told that the official announcement will be made soon, so please be patient. I will tell you this, though: I am working on a videogame adaptation. I’ll have to leave it at that for now.
Progress continues on INTERAGENTS. I just received a glorious cover for Issue 5 from Eagle Award nominee Azim Akberali. I can’t wait to show it off!
And speaking of INTERAGENTS, Valerio Giangiordano sent me the 11th complete page of Issue 3, and our new art team of Riccardo Latina and Valentina Bianconi have completed 5 pages of Issue 4. As for scripting, I am almost finished with issue 7, so things are moving along nicely.
Since this update wouldn’t be complete without some art, how about a teaser of Riccardo’s and Valentina’s upcoming run on INTERAGENTS? Just a peek to whet the appetite?
Okay… here you go. This teaser image is from INTERAGENTS #4.
And I’ll close with this gorgeous image. Much more news to come very soon. I promise.
