Great reviews. Not sure if it's helping. Thanks to these reviewers, though.

comicsbulletin says Hero by Night is an answer to my prayers.

comixtreme says As superhero stories go, it’s hard to get more classic than this.

Hero By Night came out last Wednesday. Quietly. The few responses we did get were pretty great, and there was even a mention at CBR and made the Read Pile. Mentions here and there, but not yet the official reviews of Issue 1. Shame. It's a better issue. There's also an interview with me in the back.

We're working on Issue 3 right of HBN right now. Upon seeing it drawn, we realized there was a scene that could have been better, so it was nice to be in the position to rewrite it, redraw it, and and even move it to the front of the issue for impact. It could have stayed, but being able to do this on the fly just makes the issue that much better. I've written six issues of HBN now, I guess one questionable scene isn't too bad :)

I just got a pretty nice job. I can't say what it is, it'd tip off people to something before the official announcment. I'm extremely lucky to have landed it. So there'll be a big announcement from me here pretty soon about it. Big for me, anyway.

Planet of the Dinosaurs in right now at a company who is interested, and there could be an offer soon. It's a really good company. It really only officially went there, and I'm going to hold onto submitting anyone else and see if things work out with them first.

Death is in the last stages. Actually, the Dillinger end of it is beyond it. I'm just waiting for an e-mail and again there will be an announcement.

TV Dinner Assassinations is kicking ass. I'm not in a hurry to publish it yet. While I concentrate on other things, we just keep getting ahead on it. It's one of those things that I feel like I'll publish myself if I have to. I'm considering leaving it black and white. There's just a great vibe to it.

I'm concentrating on the project in paragraph 3 this weekend though, all three of you will see what it is when they announce it :)

* Issue 2 is on the stands next Wednesday, but my comps came today and I'm super proud. It took two issues to get our stride. The issue's a throwdown with a giant fucking monkey. It's unapologetic super hero insanity!

*There will be an issue for Free Comic Book Day

* Issue 4 starts a new arc and will be 99 cents to get the word out. Big event!

* It will be the cover of the Pittsburgh comicon pre-con mailer. That's a lot of fucking copies with its picture on.

* I just heard the issue 2 reorders were relatively large.

* Issue 3 in Previews now.

So if you're bitching there's no fun in comics anymore, pick up DJ Coffman's insane creation (co-written and scripted by me) and try one issue. It's humor, action, mega-super-prime in your face fun.

Atomic Romance named this scene from Star Trek: Vulcans as best dramatic moment of the year. Cool.

HBN Reviews from Broken Frontier, Comixtreme, and Silver Bullet

Aside from some scattered praise, three major review sites have looked at the book. And the cool thing is that everyone is catching on to what we're trying to do with the book. The words all-ages, saturday morning cartoon, and fun keep popping up. Anyway . . .

Broken Frontier praises it HERE.

Comixtreme gives it 4 out of 5 HERE.

And Silver Bullet gives it 4 1/2 out of 5 HERE.

TV Dinner Assassination Art is done for Issue 1

And today the last pencilled and inked page of TV Dinner Assassination Issue 1 was turned in. Just waiting on the cover and the lettering and then it goes out to publishers.

As I've said before, this book is kind of special to me because of all the things I'm dong -- the Death books, Planet of the Dinosaurs, Hero By Night, Star Trek -- this is probably closest to my VOICE; it's probably the best type of thing that I do, so I guess we will see how it turns out.

And also let me take a second to say that Noel Tuazon is one of the best and most professional artists I've ever worked with. His work comes alive, and it comes in timely. I'm going to work with this guy as long as he'll let me.

Oh, and a disclaimer, that page I'm showing is not the last page.
