News and tributes



Congratulations to Monica Freedle, the lucky pre-orderer who will be recieving the original cover artwork for the new book. And a huge thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered thus far. You have put a massive dent in the immediately upcoming printing bill, and I sincerely appreciate it.



Platinum Grit is a wonderful comic that you can read right here, on the internet. I believe it originally began as a print publication in Australia, but they've done a pretty good job of transplanting it onto a webpage. Don't let the browser plugin requirement deter you from checking it out. The story is a sort of romance/sci-fi epic mixed with Python-esque absurdity. And the artwork is a gorgeous. (Kind of like a rounder, less angular take on Jamie Hewlett.)

Into a featureless face, they carve a smile



I will announce the winner of the cover-art contest on Monday! If you would like to have a chance at the big prize yourself, please make sure you pre-order your book before Saturday. Rock? Rock!



I have heard back from everyone who ordered the t-shirt two-pack. All the orders are straightened out now. Thanks guys!



I have put together a little graphic showing how Dayfree and all the other webcomic folks are going to be situated at this year's Comic Con. You can view it here if you are curious. It is seriously nerd central.

I kind of laughed at the sparks that spread the flames



Almost everybody who ordered the Noosehead/Cannibal Pride t-shirt two-pack has emailed me back to let me know what colour of Cannibal shirt they wanted. However, there are still a couple of folks who have not. Please, if you ordered the two pack, drop me an email. I can't have your shirts mailed until I do! Sorry about the hassle, it is entirely my fault.



The new book goes to the printers tomorrow! And soon, they are going to be handing me a bill with a large scary number on it. So, the more preorders I can get before the weekend, the better!



At least now I can show you some previews of the cool stuff I've put into this thing. First, we have the hyped-up wrap-around cover. One pre-orderer will be recieving the original artwork for this. As for everyone else, you'll have to make due with this computerized version. This is what the actual cover itself will look like, except that I have removed the title logo so you can see the full picture:

Second, there is the bonus story. I'm incredibly pleased with how it turned out... I got to use a story idea I had wanted to use online earlier this year, but ultimate skipped because I thought it would slow down the overall pace of the bigger story arc too much. Rikk, Butcher and Alphonso all make appearances, and we learn exactly what happened to Earl when he tried to remove those cats from Sidney's trailer. Here are a few random images pulled from the story:

I think this is good stuff. At the very least, it's some of my own best work. I hope you all enjoy it!



In addition to selling through the website, I will also have the book available at this year's San Diego Comic-con. It's shaping up to be one heck of a convention... not only will we be a stone's throw from Dumbrella, Penny Arcade, Flight, and Blank Label Comics, but we'll also be just a few metres away from my cartooning hero, Steve F**king Purcell!



How hot is that? That is hot!
