SPY GUY vs. TCAF 2010

Filed under: Announcements,Conventions — M Kitchen @ 9:36 am

SPY GUY is not going to TCAF. It is a “curated event” and the clique voted SPY GUY off the island. So instead I’ll be working on SPY GUY #2 Page 9.

On the Drawing Board…

Filed under: Announcements,Photos,Spy Guy — M Kitchen @ 11:49 am

Here is the first panel for the 2 page SPACE 2010 Anthology that I am working on right now.  I’ve always had a problem with going in with the blacks for contrast, but I’m very pleased with the way this one is coming along.  Thought I’d share.

Now back to the drawing board.

Indy Comic Book Week 2009

Filed under: Announcements — M Kitchen @ 6:05 pm

When Diamond Comic Distributors informed the Direct Market retailers they would not be shipping comics in the fifth week of December, Jake Ekiss and friends leaped into action proclaiming December 30, 2009 – January 5, 2010 as Indy Comic Book Week!

In an interview with The Fabler, Jake says:  “This year was the perfect storm.  It came from Diamond’s benchmarks raising and some new distributors edging onto the scene in response, then culminated with some wonky UPS holidays that meant Diamond would skip a week of shipping in December…  [Diamond] tends to overshadow a lot of other great work that’s out there. This year is special in that we get to have that work, for however brief a time, take a front seat.”

Ultraist Studios answered the call to action, by using ICBW 2009 as a platform to launch SPY GUY #1 into the direct market.  As of today, over 500 comics have been shipped out to stores across the USA.  For a complete list of ICBW friendly comic book shops, click here.

To take a look at all the other comic book creators that are participating in ICBW 2009 click here.

Thanks to everyone who has come together to make this event happen.  Personally, I’m excited to see how this all unfolds.
