I think the title of this entry says it all. I have no excuse for not updating since November of last year... but I'll give a few anyway.
First and foremost, I've been trying to better myself career-wise. See, my full-time job involves motion picture post production and while I've got the paperwork aspect of the job committed to memory, I never had the opportunity to really learn the PHYSICAL side of the process. So I've been trying to learn it. And that's meant a lot more time spent in and around cutting rooms, labs, sound houses, etc... basically, we're all lucky I manage to get (on average) five PIRATE COVEs done each week what with my hectic schedule.
Meanwhile, I've been deep into re-scanning the first three episodes of PIRATE COVE so they can be put into book form and guess what? It's done! Well... almost. I'm waiting to get the proof copy back from the printer, but by the time the San Diego Comic Con rolls around, guess what's going to be for sale both at the show AND via our http://www.lulu.com/
Speaking of books, two other volumes of the printed COVE will be making their debut in San Diego this year: Episodes 29/30 and Episodes 31/32. As usual, the books will be available in both FULL COLOR and BLACK & WHITE. Episodes 1-3 will be available ONLY in black & white because, well, the strips are all in black & white.
I've got PIRATE COVE's San Diego Comic Con Small Press table number around here somewhere, but I just re-organized my desk and now I can't find anything. I'll post that information in my next blog entry. Should be sometime in the year 2010.
Anyway, I gotta run... still putting the finishing touches on the first few strips of Episode XXXV: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE MUMMY which starts this Monday, July 7th! And I hope you enjoyed EPISODE XXXIV: HYSTERICAL BLINDNESS... now that I've looked back and re-read it, it's definitely ranking high up there on my list of favorite PIRATE COVE episodes.
Take care, check back on occasion, and see some of you in San Diego!
