A quick shot of awesome...

This came in late last night and I thought I'd share it with all of you. It's the finished cover image, colored and all. Colors by the always amazing, Dennis Calero, co-creator and artist for the X-Men:Noir miniseries and too many other comic projects to list here. Check out his website here for more info, also, listed in the links section.

My apologies

Howdy all, sorry for the long absence between posts. After I got back from SDCC, I was fried, both mentally and physically. I spent the next couple weeks decompressing and working on a side job I have going (construction) and getting ready for a week's vacation in the southern outer banks in North Carolina. We got back on Sunday and now things are going into overdrive. We have the preliminary cover colors done and will be showing the completed colors here just as soon as we get them and we'll be passing along who's coloring it as well.

We'll still be premiering the 1st issue of Valkkadia at the Long Beach Comicon, however,and hope to have signed premiere copies of the book available for purchase at the show as well as regular single copies. Signed by whom? You ask? Well, how about all 4 artists involved in the creation of the book.
These will probably be signed, numbered and very limited. More on this as it develops.

Other things, well, have been sort of put by the wayside in the rush to finish this first issue and get settled into a workable schedule se we can keep releasing future issues in a timely manner.
We feel this is an important thing and we have all the pencil art finished for issue #2 and it's over half inked, with the script coming in the next week. We are excited about this finally getting out there and getting some feedback. This book isn't your typical modern comic, there's a lot of story and a lot of action. Currently, we don't have the ending in sight. It has begun to take on a life of it's own and continues to grow (unexpectedly) larger as we create it.

Well, it's late and I'm headed to the city tomorrow for a meeting. I will do my best to keep the updates a tad more regular as we approach the date of the show and the release of the book.

Thanks to everyone who continues to support and help us and we appreciate any and all attention we get from all of you out there in comicland.

Talk to ya soon.
