Entry 201: B&R and Infinity #5 are out!
Did you get this on this past Wednesday (10/30/13)?
How bout this?
If you did get one of these, GREAT! You are probably a good, worthwhile person. You're now here reading this, which means you are likely pretty smart and cool.
If you got both of these though! You are one of the special people. The chosen few who exist on a separate, more awesome, level than the rest of the world.
If you didn't get ether? It's cool. Money is tight right?... You're trade waiting. I get it. I do that too.
At any rate, I gotta tell you it feels really good to have mine and Ben Bates's Bebop and Rocksteady comic in my hands. Other than the fact that they are licensed, existing characters, this comic is the first comic I've created where what is being said is what I wanted to say. Comics are a storytelling medium, and so far, I've mostly just been telling other peoples stories. Sure there is an art to telling a story, and you can make it your own, in ways. But the intention of it belongs to someone else... many times the intention belongs to no one, because the story only exists out of the necessity for having a product. So it feels really good to have something that is what I intended it to be. It's point is what I wanted for it.
All the reviews for Bebop and Rocksteady have been pretty good. I know there is a lot of nostalgia for these characters, and there is a lot of expectation. Doing right by these characters was our number one priority. I'm glad a lot of people are pleased.
I have a lot more to say about this comic. I'll be doing a big entry all about it. I've got a lot of extra material on it. It will be fun.
In other news: I'm late on putting up a new Amnia Cycle. I'm under a really tight deadline right now and I won't be able to put the finishing touches on the pages for a few more days.
Here's a look at one of the panels.
What else can I tell you?
If you're not checking it out, you should check out my Tumblr. I'm always throwing stuff on there. Some times I even have a little something to say about it sometimes.

And you can check out my Tumblr for things I like. Lot's of stuff there too.
And I'll leave you with one more page from Infinty #5. As always, on Infinity, colors by Justin Ponsor.
