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.
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.
Still digesting the amazing experience I had at Baltimore. Thanks so much to all of you who stopped by, chatted, parted with hard-earned money, and blew kisses as you walked away (this never actually happened). I appreciate all the support I received and am more determined than ever to repay your kindness with nice things to read. Here are a few of the costumed folk who made the weekend such a blast.
My monitor crashed so I haven’t been able to keep up with posting the new pages. If you want to see the book, please come to Baltimore on September 8th or 9th, go to the convention center, pay your monies, and visit me at table A5. See you there!
I want to thank Yannick Morin for his amazing critique of Drones #1 on Comix Tribe. Please check it out here if you haven’t already, and then go back and read everything this guy has written. He knows what he’s talking about! If you are interested in more Drones, you can get the first issue on iTunes or Graphicly. I will also be at the Baltimore Comic Con on September 8-9 with print copies of issues 1 and 2. Come by and say hello!
Thanks so much to everybody who came to the signing today at Terminal Entertainment. It was great meeting you all while practicing my bad German. I definitely want to hear your opinion of the book, so please write to me at chris (at) epigamics (dot) com and let me know what you think!
Also a big thanks to Mike Perkins, who is a great guy as well as an amazing artist, and to Ecki, Wolfgang and Gerhard for setting it up (and supplying me with a weekly dose of mildly hallucinatory comics).
Hey everyone! I’m really looking forward to meeting you all at the Kapow Con this weekend. I’ll be at table 177. Come on over for conversations about drone warfare, assassins, comics, and goats. And I swear I will get this website up and running soon. Sorry for the mess!
