Contact!! Kody Chamberlain

April 30, 2010

An interesting thing appeared in my e-mail in box a few days ago. I received a press release from writer/artist Kody Chamberlain promoting his new mini series Sweets published by Image Comics.

This was exciting to because while yes, I've sent out letters to Image Comics trying to get ahold of artists, I'm not entirely sure how I ended up on his mailing list. So it was exciting to see after years of running Draw Me In I had managed to get a press release... from a creator... that I'd not initially made contact with!

I checked out his site and the man is doing the entire book. Writing, drawing, coloring and inking. How can you not appreciate that for starters.

Sweets is "a five-issue crime drama set in New Orleans shortly before Hurricane Katrina strikes."

I replied to his e-mail and about a day later he replied, "I'll do my best to sneak you in, just about to start on issue #2."

There's already preview pages of the book out there on the interwebs. I like his style and I look forward to checking the book out.

Thanks Kody!

Contact!! Jeremy Haun!

April 20, 2010

As I mentioned in my recent trip to Planet Comicon I made a particular effort to get some of the "local guys" in on my campaign, with an emphasis on Jeremy Haun. He had shown a great enthusiasm in Draw Me In and about a week ago I received an e-mail from him. Still too early to know about any future projects/issues, but anytime there's something in line for the future it always gets me excited!

Not much else in the way of news at the moment. Talking to Jason Arron, again at Planet Comicon, I found out about a future signing with him and artist Adam Kubert for the May release of Astonishing Spider-man/Wolverine. So yeah.. I'll be going to that, got to hit up Adam Kubert man!

That's all for now... more as it develops true believers!

Planet Comicon 2010!

April 11, 2010

Hey! There was a convention and I went to it! It was only about two weeks ago.. (hee hee OOPS!)

I had a great time though. Talked to a lot of great creator folk. Let's start with the local talent.

I'm becoming more comfortable around Jason Aaron. There, I said it. And to add on top of that, I wasn't reading anything written by him. Aside from Wolverine's many appearances in Marvel books, I never really got behind his solo book. So I gave Jason's Wolverine: Weapon X a shot and enjoy it. He gave me a possible heads up to a signing for the launch of his new series Astonishing Wolverine/Spider-man. I'm looking forward to it.

Talked to Jeremy Haun, somebody I think I last talked to years ago in Lawrence. Apparently he frequents the same comic book store I go to (limitedfigures). Jeremy's work load has been increasing and I've been trying to get more of the "local" guys in on my campaign, so I made a point to focus on a conversation with him. He was more than receptive and encouraged me to e-mail him. I did the very next day but have not heard back from him. Thinking I should try it again.

Had to make sure my run of Proof had been all updated with Alex Grecian's autograph. We had a nice chat on the past year's stories. Always a delightful fellow to talk to.

Phil Hester: Well, the convention tradition continues... I gave him a new flier. That's usually as far as that goes. I wonder how long we can keep this up before I wear Phil down? You reading me Phil? I'm persistent!

B. Clay Moore is a nice guy and seems favorable to my quest. I can't wait for more Hawaiian Dick work to hit shelves. He gave me an update on the next instalment, it's progress so far. Can't wait to see his name in the Previews catalogs again soon.

Now for the out of towners. Let's start with the disappointment first. Stephane Roux, all the way from Paris... to do commissions. He was sketching at his table which a lot of artists do at conventions, however his posse behind the counter (as I was taking comics out of their bags) advised me that because of his list of commissions, his autographs would be limited to the last hour of the con. Well, guess what... never mind. I usually get everything done well before the con wraps up so I missed out on any autographs.

Phil Noto and Talent Caldwell... these guys were great to chat with. They liked the fliers, and Talent said he'd throw me into his next project. Have to admit, a very receptive year.

Lastly, Sean McKeever who was I guess fashionably late as I would check in on his table to see if he had arrived. I absolutely loved his run on Marvel's Sentinel and had every issue signed. I hate to be that guy who has whole runs signed, but I figured I could be selfish this one time. Sean talked a bit about the run with me and a nice guy. I gave him a few fliers cause I've enjoyed the artists he's worked with on his various projects. Unfortunately I picked up most of his mini Gravity which I would have loved to have signed as well. Oh well, perhaps a different show someday.

Another great show, picked up some great cheap comics, finished out my run of Powers and Astonishing X-Men. And most importantly talked with some of the industry's finest! Thanks to all who took the time to humor a fanboy.
