Coming Late 2014/Early 2015…
Been waiting a long time to share these too, from another in the works project called… MANWOLFS, with one of my favourite illustrators, Dean Beattie.
Huh? What’s a Manwolf?
The Manwolfs are a motley crew of bohemian, beer drinking, skateboarding, anti-corporate, fun loving extroverts. Lead by their enigmatic, and somewhat unbalanced, leader, conveniently named, The Leader, the Manwolfs are never far away from trouble, mainly because they are usually causing it.
In their never-ending quest to stay sensitive, the Manwolfs have spent literally hours honing and training their bodies to better prepare for the adventures and mayhem that inevitably follow them around. Fuelled by beer, the finest takeout food and armed with a ‘Kick To Kill’ mentality, the Manwolfs are ready to tear down the walls of consumerism and injustice wherever they find them. Failing that, a nice cup of tea and newspaper will do.
Official website and Facebook pages to follow.
With a bit of luck I’ll be able to post some preview art and information on some upcoming projects here of the next few days. No news on No Place Like Home just yet, Rich is still busy, busy, busy.
Anyways, stay tuned.
You’re all probably wondering what the hell happened to No Place Like Home? Well, life kinda got in the way. I won’t bore you with the details, let’s just say last year brought a series of positive life events that swallowed Richard’s time and in my case a series of tragic, unfortunate events that swallowed my soul and ability to even think about putting words to paper.
However, we all have dark patches in our lives, and I’ve certainly been using that as inspiration in writing the second volume of No Place Like Home. Yes, it’s being scripted as we speak and I’m making great progress with it. As for the art, Rich is busy being a dad to his newborn son and working silly hours at his day job so we’re working out when he can get back to creating those beautiful pages you love so much. Hopefully I’ll have some firm dates on that sooner than later.
So, It is happening, it’s just difficult putting this stuff out on a regular basis because comic books are not our full time occupation. No Place Like Home was and is created during our spare time which limits our output at this point. However, steps are being taken on my part to make writing and creating comics my full time, day job and I’ve got a couple of projects to announce in the next month which I’ll be Kickstarter funding. This will give me the ability to focus my time solely on comic books and make sure everything gets published in a timely manner.
We do love No Place Like Home and we do realise that some of you are a little pissed it’s taking so long. All we ask is for a little more patience, we promise 2014 will see the next chapter of No Place Like Home.
I’ll do my best to ensure you’re all updated on a more regular basis and I genuinely want to thank all of you for your continued support and love for the book. It will be rewarded!
In the meantime, keep introducing people to the book and spreading the word, it all helps to keep No Place Like Home moving forward.
Yes, finally, it’s here and will be available from 3rd March and we’re super stoked to say it looks great!
Thanks for the continued support folks, more news soon!
OK, it was very, very difficult to choose a winner and we want to thank everyone who submitted art and waited ages to hear the results. We love you all and really appreciate your efforts and support for the book. We couldn’t do this without you!
Like I said, it was tough, so we’re going to give a 1st Prize and a 2nd Prize instead of just one.
2nd prize is a copy of No Place Like Home Volume 1 trade paperback signed by both Richard and I with a sketch of the winner’s favourite character from No Place Like Home.
1st prize is as above plus we will print the winner’s submission in the the trade paper back too!
So congrats guys, we loved your art! I’ll drop you both a line in a few days to find out which characters you want sketched and to get your addresses to post them out when they arrive!
