Wow, my 100th post! I wanted to save it for something special and I hope I have it so chocked full of TASTY GOODNESS that you'll forgive such a LOOOOOOOONG absence! A BIG thanks to EVERYONE who's stuck with us this far and lets see if we can't bust out some of that dependable work ethic now that the Summer Reading Program has wound down to a close. Actually, that's a great starting point!
-- The U Cre-8 line has been a PHENOMENAL SUCCESS! I want to thank both the Columbus Metropolitan Library and the Southwest Public Library districts for allowing V:IP to come in and take part in their "Be A Hero, Read a Book" themed program! Visiting almost EVERY CORNER of this city, I see that comics are widely loved and there are just scores of kids interested in not just reading them, but making their own! Truly Awesome! And I have every intention of taking the U Cre-8 line BEYOND the bounds of Columbus, alone -- so keep your eyes peeled, I may be rolling in on your town!
-- Things are moving along EXCELLENTLY with TTw/L! I know my last post featured a 7pg preview, but I'm feeling all kinds of excited (I mean, this IS the 100th post and all!) that I'm going to show case pages 8 & 9, a flashback sequence that shows Apex Prime IN ACTION!
Work continues for The Samaritan! In fact, I've just concluded an open bidding for ad space in the COLLECTED EDITION (featuring Chapters 1-3) and they'll be sent the printers by week's end (if you're interested in ad space in any V:IP piece, just drop us a line!)! I'll update this post with a link when they're available! And just to tied you over till then -- check out the interim cover for Chapter 3: The Fix! (*Funny story, artist Ren McKinzie's son thought the original cover could use a bit more RED MARKER on it, so this one is only an acting substitute till Ren redoes it! Lol!!)
And last but not least: 8 BITS!!! I've done some new designs (which you can check out at on Deviantart!) and also finished this BEAUTIFUL MONSTER of a poster! That's 192 DESIGNS spread over 36x24" (That's 6 sq ft of 8 Bits!!) and will replace the previous 36x24 poster for any orders as of 7/27/11 (Still for the price of $20 + $5 shipping!!)
But we're not done yet! The 8 Bits will now be available as STICKERS at shows! I found a local printer willing to knock out ALL of these 8 Bit designs, so you can have your pick of buttons (shout out to Mutant Cactus!), stickers and prints!!! And if you see me at a show, stop over and take the 8 Bit Challenge -- Name 10 (ten) characters (WITH SPECIFICITY!!!) and win a FREE button (Retail value $1)!!! The fun doesn't stop at V:IP, but its time I get back to work so you'll have more of that tasty goodness we're known to deliver!!!
See you tomorrow with the return of IF I WERE EIC!!!!
