8 Bit Valentines are READY!!!

Posted On Sunday, January 23, 2011

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I've got a set of 8 Bit cards to commemorate this holiday of LOOOOOVE! Featuring 12 of comics' most famous couples, these sets come pre-cut and wrapped in a red ribbon, with space for your dedications!



Sets are $10, each, but I'm producing a limited run of ONLY 20 sets that I'll have on hand at Comic Town on February 12th, where I'm taking part in the fundraiser for the Comic Book Connection Initiative. If you don't want to take a chance on missing out, pre-orders ARE available (but only until the 10th of Feb; still $10 a set, plus shipping) -- just drop me an email and you're insured to make your sweetheart smile with comic booky goodness!

What's on tap!

Posted On Sunday, January 16, 2011

With 2011 in full swing, I'm already knee-deep in production of my HUGE workload for the year. I've given myself a challenge of producing AT LEAST 15 works (that's titles or projects, not specifically number of issues) and I'm starting this first quarter off STRONG! What's on the menu, you ask? Well, I was gonna keep it a secret, but...


- As previously referenced, Ren McKinzie and I will be kicking off The Samaritan, with the first issue coming out within the next few weeks! This is the first multi-issue work Ren and I have ever done, despite knowing each other for the last decade -- over that time, I've seen him mature as an artist (and as an old man!) and watched his art take on new life! For all the challenges setforth with this series, I'm QUITE pleased to have him navigate it with me!


- At the same time, I'm collaborating with Harold Edge(Dynagirl, Fallen Justice) on The Trouble w/Love, a one-shot that explores what would happen if the Superman-archetype displayed a bit more human weakness. I'm VERY excited to work with Harold, whose work had me hooked from the Fallen Justice (Redhanded Studios) series and to be honest, I think he's even better now!


- Returning with the series that started my self-publishing career, I'm going to make Omnibus a quarterly, anthology showcase! Here, I'll be exploring a few of my story ideas before deciding whether to make them full on series or not -- more than anything, its a challenge to myself to hone my artistic abilities and take my skills to the next level!


I hope I've sufficiently whetted your whistle, but rest assured, I've got a couple things up my sleeve that I'm playing close to the chest for now -- but there are some BIG things coming from WizWorld Inc and I can't wait to take you all on the ride!

The Official 8 Bit Catalogs!

Posted On Tuesday, January 4, 2011

I've gone thru and collected the ENTIRETY of my 8 Bit Character designs -- volumes 1 AND 2 -- for a total of 166 fan favorite characters from Marvel and DC! And if your REALLY feeling these designs, head over to Redbubble.com or Skreened.com to purchase your own graphic tees, hoodies and more! But in the meantime, spend the next few minutes finding YOUR favorite characters in the 8 Bit Catalog, published exclusively thru Issuu.com!


Vol #1 - Here's where the fun began! What was JUST supposed to be 8 designs for the 2010 Champion City Con, QUICKLY (in 3 days!) became a collection 100 designs strong!

Vol #2 - With the fan outcry for more of their favorite characters, I HAD to return with a 2nd volume of 8 Bit designs! Now with more villains, more heroes -- both the classic and obscure -- Vol 2 is some of the best designs yet!

Enjoy!

Taking it to the Streets...

Posted On Monday, January 3, 2011

As a child, I often accompanied my mom to rehersals and the like (she's an AWESOME Gospel music piano player and singer!) and before we left, she would always say, "Make sure you bring something to occupy yourself!" Now, this was before I found my heart in drawing or comics, so it would often be my favorite toy of the hour! But, as a creator, that phrase stands as THE source of inspiration for my next, major marketing promotion. My creative peer and fellow comic editorialist, Tyler James stated in a recent column that there needs to be more of an effort to put comics in the hands of kids -- a sentiment that I whole-heartedly agree with! But, while Tyler specifically was referring to the content of books, I'm taking the notion to the next level and am LITERALLY putting comics in kids hands!

I'm proud to announce, Daddy Packs -- the comic activity center that fits in a BAG! Featuring one of my Half-print books (an 8pg story, folded to fit on one page!) and four U Cre-8 Sketch Cards (an abridged version of my character creation activity book), with a pencil, eraser and crayons -- they're a surefire way occupy a young one, while simultaneously promoting both comics and creativity!
I'll take some with me wherever I go and if I see a kid suffering a bit of idle-mindedness, I'll pass one along (with parental allowance, of course)! As a parent, I KNOW how handy something like these can be!!!

You're OOOOOONE in a THOUSAND...

Just a few days before the end of 2010, I posted on Facebook that if I could hit 1000 views by Jan 1st, I'd do a "bonus" strip to commemorate the occurrence. Apparently, there's a lot of love for WizWorld Inc out there, because I'm now just a few clicks shy of 1100, a full hundred more than I had hoped for! Not a bad way to start to the year -- now to heading back to the studio to keep the momentum going!

Thank you all!
