The Saga of Rex is kind of in limbo until all the elements are in place to start production. So, I wanted another project to breach the gap.
To my great delight, I've been working with a company in Texas called Gearbox. I can't reveal what I'm working on, right now, but I'm truly excited. More will be announced when the time comes.
This week, I'll be devoting my time to doing the final mastering for the DCP Theatrical Master of Synesthesia. The film is scheduled to show at both Annecy and Zagreb, so I need to finish this project. Now, there's a real deadline.
On Saturday, March 29th, I'll be signing at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle at:
Image Comics, Booth 212, from 1:00 to 2:00
Fantagraphics Booth 207, from 3:00 to 4:00.
If you're around, make sure you come an say hi.
Got Young Romance 2 Comps
March 5th, 2014
A couple of days ago, I received my comps for a new book I edited for Fantagraphics called, Young Romance 2: The Early Simon & Kirby Romance Comics. It is really awesome. 200 pages of pure Simon & Kirby goodness. Special mention must be made of Chris Fama's beautiful restoration. His technique combined with my yellow matte process makes for a very pleasant presentation. Really happy with the book.
I wrote to Editorial Supervisor, Gary Groth, to tell him how much I loved the book and his reply was, "Another triumph!"
For those wondering what my involvement with this book is, check out this post.
Interview at Animdesk
February 12th, 2014
When I first received an email containing this interview on November 17, 2013, I asked for it to be shortened. I mean, there were so many questions and my time for such things is quite limited. However, Shany, who handles the website and interviews, was very persistent and didn't want to cut any of his questions. The result, after a few months of filling in the answers in my spare time, is probably the longest and most in-depth interview I've ever done. Check it out!
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet For $3 on Gamefly Digital
February 3rd, 2014
A few months ago, when it was announced that Microsoft would be retiring Game for Windows Live, Joe (ITSP co-creator) and I were left with two options: Have our game become obsolete by this coming summer or take it upon ourselves to have GFWL removed and replaced with Steamworks. For us, this was a no-brainer.
By handling the GFWL removal ourselves, we were able to expand the nature of our agreement with Microsoft and be allowed to self-publish our game on services other than Steam and Amazon.com (which Microsoft still handles). Being able to self-publish is exciting as it offers us an opportunity to finally derive some revenue from our game.
The first partnership under our new deal is with GameFly Digital and to celebrate the occasion, we are offering the game at 75% off from Feb 3rd to Feb 16th . If you want to try out ITSP, there is no better time: You'll be supporting us as developers while getting a cool game for a fraction of the price.
And to make the deal even sweeter, you can use codes, FEB20OFF or UKFEB20OFF to save an additional 20%! Click here to buy Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet on Gamefly Digital.
