I printed out digest-sized copies of the first issue of The Rift, and I have to say that overall I'm extremely pleased with how it turned out. My artist, Alex Amezcua, was a talented guy to begin with, but he clearly improved throughout the issue, and the stuff he's putting out now is just incredible. I can't wait to see what he cooks up for issue 2.
ClosetWorld is also moving along, and the artist, John Amor, is as perfect an artist as you can get for the tone of a comic. His light-hearted renderings and the way he captures facial expressions are exactly what I was hoping for when I turned this short story into comic form. We should be posting further installments soon at ComicCritique.com.
My latest independent comic is a superhero story titled Redo, and the issue 1 script is complete. I believe this is the best opening issue for a comic I've written to date, and I'm so excited to see my artist, William Allan Reyes' inital layouts for the first installment. This is going to be one fantastic series, and I believe you'll see something quite unique in the superhero genre. It's got action, mystery, romance, you name it, it's in there.
I'm also pitching a few projects to Marvel, so we'll see how that goes as well. All in all, it's an exciting time of writing, and I've got a lot of varied and fun projects in the works over the summer (which will be spent in Iraq). Keep checking out this page here along with www.ComicCritique.com for more on my webcomics. And as always, thanks for reading.
