Rubicon excerpt 3

This is the third page I did for the Prism Guide 2008. We'll have to see if it makes it in... the deadline was missed by this page, but the first 2 work without it. Except for some dialog changes, this page is pretty much the same as the one I did 15 years ago, in layout anyways. I like to think I draw better these days :)

the RUBICON preview for PRISM guide 2008

I am working on a sci-fi story that I began developing in art school. My boyfriend at the time named it "The RUBICON". I've always had the intention of finishing it, and have had it percolating on the back burner for years now... working out the plot points, removing contrivances... and now it is ready to go. Issue #1 is scripted and blocked out, and the first finished couple of pages I chose to be the best scene to represent it as a preview in the PRISM Comics Guide 2008. The end product will be in color, but the guide is in black and white, so these are just line-work. At this point I haven't decided whether to present it serially in DOGSPUNK COMIX and collect it as a graphic novel when complete, or just start off as it's own series.

Hard to Swallow #3 is finally here!

SO this baby took a lot longer than expected. We really had printer hell with it. Brenner Printing, which printed the first 2 issue, decided that they are not printing adult material anymore. We started working with Morgan Printing, but they accidentally quoted us half of what they meant to, so at the last minute we went with Lebonfon, with which we really had some ridiculous communication problems. But, unless we want to pay a LOT more, or print overseas, they are the only game in town (or north america). This being said...
It looks great! Deadline problems allowed me to redo the cover art, which I love, especially compared to the one it would have had otherwise. The issue, like the one before it, is 8 pages longer, and a dollar more. So #1 was 48 pages and 6.99$, #2 was 56 and 7.99$, and this one is 64 pages and 8.99$. As you might guess, #4 will be 72 pages and 9.99$. So each issue is a little thinker and a bit more work. My Feral story in this issue is 22 pages, the longest story I've done so far! It has worked out that I've been writing slightly longer stories each issue.... my half of #4 may very well be one long Feral story!
So check it out, the book is available on the Marginalized Publications website, as well as the Last Gasp site and various book and comic-book stores about this naughty world.
