The pencils for DRONES #4 are now finished! Here’s a preview of Bruno’s beautifully insidious cover. Or is it insidiously beautiful? I don’t know. While I’m doing the research you can check out DRONES 1-3 for free right here. My favorite page from issue three just went live today. It’s a real hootenanny! Let me know what you think via Facebook, Twitter, or at chris (at) epigamics (dot) com. Thanks!
“Wha? Don’t leave me hanging!”
I won’t, mystery fan! Drones #3 just needs a few days to warm up and stretch its muscles. We’ll be back this weekend with new pages, and the plan is to update twice a week for this issue. Sorry for the changes, but issue four needs a bit more work. We don’t want to rush through issue three just to completely shut down this ABSOLUTELY FREE COMIC if #4 isn’t finished in time.
Watch out for drones overhead, and come back this weekend for issue three. Here’s a sneak preview of something we’re really proud of:
Colored pages from Drones #4. Cabral rocks.
Ok. It was late, I was tired, and I just wanted to spread the word that Drones #3 was finally finished and available for digital download. So what did I do? I posted a shabby little screen shot and a link. I know, I know. After all the hours spent to get to this point. After more than a year of rewrites, redraws, retries, replies. After blood has literally been spilled on these pages…
I post a screen shot. And a link.
When Drones #3 deserves a party.
I mean, seriously, have you seen a better cover this month? Between Bruno’s deceptively spoiler-ish artwork and E.T. Dollman’s color choice for the logo, I think it’s our best design yet. Well, at least the best cover we’ve made public. The cover to issue four makes this thing look like sloppy joe.
What else is there to celebrate?
How about Wahad’s new suit?
This epic stare down?
Another beautiful pinup by our very own Cabral?
Smokin’ Huqtar by Joe Lalich?
(Ok, I’m still using screenshots. Big deal. Get the digital release here if you want the big goodness.)
So, you see, there was much more to share than my original post. I hope you now have a better idea of all the love the Drones team has put into this book. If you want to support us, please check out www.dronescomic.com where we’ll be posting one page each day until the story is complete! For those of you who absolutely must. have. Drones. now. please download issues 1-3 over at DriveThruComics.
Thanks for reading.
Oh. Bruno just sent me some pages from issue four. It’s going to look like this:
Going to change things up here a bit. Click on the Drones page or the thumbnail on the right to head over to drones.epigamics.com, where I’ll be posting a new page every day. The site is still under construction so expect it to get a lot shinier as the month progresses. Or not. The main thing is that the pages will keep coming. Hope you enjoy!
Quick update: I’m off to Thought Bubble this weekend to introduce some new people to DRONES! No table, but I’ll be wandering like a maniac. I also just received this amazing pinup in the mail from Silvio DB, with colors by our very own Cabral. Just something to get you in the mood for issue three. E.T. Dollman is hard at work on the lettering, and we should be good for a digital release in the next two weeks. In other news, Bruno just got back after a whirlwind tour of the New York Comic Con and his old San Fran haunts. Whatever geek flu he got at the convention is gone and he’s working on the layouts to issue four as we speak. Can’t wait to see the new tricks he’s learned.
New interview up at Ain’t It Cool News!
I had a blast talking to The Dean, and I really enjoy how he refers to himself as an @$$hole. I need a better nickname…
I’m happy to announce that Drones #1 and #2 are up for sale at DriveThru Comics! It’s a great platform, and the issues are only 99 cents each. Drones is also coming to iBooks and Graphicly soon, but if you absolutely need to know what’s going on with your favorite pancake-eating terror-queen, now you can find out!
Quick note about the upcoming schedule. Drones #2 is scheduled for digital release in the next week or so. Cabral is working on the colors for Drones #3 as we speak, and once he’s done I’ll get that up for digital distribution as well. We’re going to go with the same platforms as issue one (iTunes and Graphicly), as well as DriveThru Comics, which I’m really excited about. More to come!!
