I should probably also make mention of the fact that our Kickstarter has hit it’s funding goal and is now at 111%! Thank you to everyone who’s pledged so far. You are all awesome. Keep spreading the word!
Just a quick reminder, we’re going to be at the Pittsburgh Comic-con on the 27th through the 29th! It looks like I’ll be somewhere near the concession stand in Artist’s Alley. I’ll have some copies of Volume 1, some t-shirts and I’ll be doing sketches. My buddy Jeremiah will also be there drawing and selling sketchcards. Come see me and say hi!
If you follow BMP on FB or the Twitters, you probably already saw, but Volume 1 is now available for sale at the real life comic book store Larger Than Life Toys and Comics in Great Northern Mall, Syracuse NY. The copies there are all signed too, with about 30 new pages.
So, with today’s comic you can see I’ve returned to the style I was using previously. (Except the method to arrive there is still my new quicker method). The background is black and the panels are more tightly locked in size and shape. It occurred to me that it would be cool for this story to alternate back and forth, since two distinct story-lines are happening and separating them visually seemed to work well. So black background, straight panels = “real life” and freewheeling chaotic panels with a white background = The Underworld. When we move into the next story though, I am probably going to gravitate towards the newer more open layouts, although I’ve already started experimenting with new color and texture ideas for the background behind the panels. Also, if I ever get the opportunity, I think the characters I’m about to introduce could really almost warrant their own spin-off comic. I can’t wait for you guys to meet The B-Vengers!
