Finally, the dream scenario of the person you’re arguing with just shutting up and listening for once
In other news…
– I was hiatused when I received this, but reader Douglas pointed me at this review of Mare by SF reviewer James Nicoll~
Thanks to the above (and of course to all of you) for taking the time to read this comic
My other project for the year, Electrum, continues to fund. I know it’s weird for me to be doing another book when I have this one to finish up, but it’s a very different creative situation… in this case, my priority is to pay the team of artists who have been working diligently for over a year to make this book as great as it can be. I’ve had to break a lot of new ground since we are in a super under-served and widely dispersed demographic (compared to my normal sci-fi / fantasy stomping grounds), and this has required a large personal investment of time and other resources to get things underway. But at this point funding is pretty much assured, which is a big relief! To preview the art and stories in the book, check out these sneak peeks and artist interviews, or take a look at the campaign itself.
One last selling point cuz I’ve been sitting on this for a few months; I sent review copies around to some mixed-race writers and artist buds and acquired quotes of recommendation from folks like Fiona Staples, Alyssa Wong and Greg Pak that I get to put on the cover :] Feeling fairly chuffed about that. Anyways, comics are great, underrepped artists are great, feel free to come join us~
