I’m extremely pumped over Flying Sparks volume 3 next week, and though it may get old, I’m going to be singing it to the rooftops for the next couple of weeks.
It’s more than just the fact that I got a book coming out. That’s a regular occurence for anyone who follows along here.
But with comics, it’s harder. The costs to produce these are so high, the time it takes to get a book from script to finish is a lot, but we’re still managing to put these out like clockwork and keep it going at a pace which only the big publishers can match.
Other indies don’t operate at this speed at all. Even the biggest kickstarter successes usually put out an issue or two a year.
It’s a little daunting, because I choose to put out 3-issues at once rather than one issue like is traditional, which means these books are big, they add up real quick in page count, shipping becomes harder as each book comes out
But it’s happening. And this is expanding into a whole universe.
Just like the Marvel Cinematic, I’m going to have a phase 2 when we get close to completion of the first arc of Flying Sparks (book 5) where we’re going to do something extremely ambitious for indie comics.
I’m going to have my whole universe just like Stan Lee, and it’s because we’ve got the readers to make it happen who are here for GREAT COMICS.
I really appreciate all of you being there because I have really high ambitions for art, want to try different things all the time (comics, music, radio dramas… film eventually) and you are the best folk out there because you’re not just demanding I do the same thing over and over like a formula, but you stick with me through the changes.
Thank you again. This week’s gonna be a fun one. More previews to come!
