Important reading for all you DRONES fans: http://thesocietypages.org/cyborgology/2013/12/12/toward-a-drone-sexuality-part-1-knowledge-and-consent/
It’s been a wild few months. The Drones Kickstarter was successful and we’re now in the fulfillment phase. The amazing Carlos Trigo and I are almost finished with a 24-page one shot entitled Mixmancer. I’m also developing four other projects with artists whose work I’ve drooled over in many public places.
I’m also overjoyed to be heading to the wonderful Thought Bubble next week! I visited this show last year and was blown away by the atmosphere and dedicated fans. This year I’m exhibiting, and it will be the first time that the Drones tpb will be available to the public. If you’re going to attend, come by New Dock Hall, table #46, and say hello. I’ll also have some beautiful A3 prints, and there might even be some freebies for the first people to swing by.
See you there!Chris
This is it! After two years of hard work, we are finally done with DRONES! The next step is to print the tpb, or, trade paperback for you non-geeks out there. But in order to do this we are asking for your help! Our goal is to raise $3000 to cover the printing and shipping costs, and we are offering plenty of snazzy rewards in return for your support. So head on over to Kickstarter, watch the video, look at the pretty pictures, check out the reward levels, and please help us out however you can. Remember, even if you’d rather not spend your hard earned monies on the book, every little share, like, and tweet will help us out. Thank you!
Just received this amazing image from the extremely talented Ramon Villalobos. What a nice guy to work with! There’s a funny story behind this picture. Remind me to tell it to you some time (tease)!
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:
