Well, my writer/artist/partial letterer comics debut has finally hit the shelves. Yep, I have an 8-page twisted retelling of The Three Little Pigs which is part of Dark Horse Books and Locust Moon Press' Once Upon a Time Machine.
It's been a long road, over three years since the project began life. With over 50 creators and in excess of 400 pages of stories, all re-imagining fairy tales in a future setting, it's a bargain at $24.99 (and you'll find it cheaper - $13.43 on Amazon) or £18.99 (£12.45 on Amazon.co.uk)!
Want more reasons to buy it? Okay, here's a few of the creators involved:
Ryan Ottley (Invincible), Khoi Pham (Scarlet Spider, Daredevil), Farel Dalrymple (Prophet, Pop Gun War), Marcio Takara (Irredeemable, The Incredibles), Cary Nord (Conan, X-O Manowar) and a whole bunch of writers, artists, letterers, colourists and editors with whom I've shared a lot of funny, constructive conversations, tip, critiques and dreams of making it. These would be people such as (in no particular order) Gav Heryng, Gary Heaney, Jim Giar, Chris Stevens, L Jamal Walton, Scott O. Brown, Jason Rodriguez, Andrew Carl, Chip Skelton, William Blankenship Jr, Jason Copland, Fred Duran, Drew Moss and Lee Nordling (I'm sure I missed some, sorry!)
Simply put, this is a dream achieved for a lot of people. It started as a fun project to get people excited, but it's ended as a VERY well-received anthology which will no doubt be the start of a lot of careers. If you have any interest in sci-fi, fairy tales or just great stories and art, you should pick up a copy and let us know what you think! Support the little guys!
Enough now, here's the cover, by Farel Dalrymple:
