News abounds, fuckers!
First off, our first issue of Wild Blue Yonder comes out the 19th of this month, and initial orders are off the charts. I want to thank everyone that told their shops to order it – you've helped make this a hit before it even reaches the stands. It's a fun book, and the beginning of my career as a full-time owner of everything I do until I shit the bed. Please tell your friends about the series, and if your shop sells out before you can get your mitts on it, let your retailer know to reorder before it sells out on our end.
Secondly, while issue two of Wild Blue Yonder is at the printers, I wanted to let you all know that it is the best single comic book I've ever been part of. No hyperbole. Mike wrote a script that is going to curl your toes; I drew a book I'm completely happy with (first time I ended a book without regrets); and Nelson Daniel nelsondaniel.deviantart.com/
absolutely 100% motherfucking crushed the colors. For the first time in my career, I don't feel lost or bored while I'm drawing, and the colors came together in a way that I've never seen in a comic book before. Stick with us, folks, and we are going to take you to places that American comics seldom venture. That's right: Clown-Fisting Porn Comics! … ahem… I mean great comics!
We have a dream team that is going to be doing books for years to come. Soon I'll be able to announce in detail my next series that is coming out two months after WBY ends. It's titled The Dread of Bęte Noire – Mike and Austin are writing it while myself and a young Lithuanian bad ass painter named Paulius Zakarauskas pauzak.deviantart.com/
(he's going to blow you mind) will be doing the art duties. Stay tuned!
Then (yeah, there's more), when I finish WBY later this year, I'll be starting the greatest story of my career, called Buck. I can't say anything about this except that it's an All Ages coming of age story about a young rabbit. Think: The Hobbit fucks Watership Down, they have a kid that grows up to beat up The Gladiator. Any questions?
Check www.nobletransmission.com for news about all of my coming books. And write us (button on the site) about what you think about Wild Blue Yonder. Mike is doing a letters page in Issue 4, and we need some neat thoughts and questions for him to answer. Get on it!
Thank you again, for all of the unbelievable support for Wild Blue Yonder! And don't forget that sales lag in the death valley of issues 2, and 3 of a new series – so tell your retailer to order while it's still solicited.
Oh, and one last thing – the crew will be signing comics June 19th at Third Eye comics in Maryland (both locations I am told). They even have an exclusive cover for the first issue! So if you are in the area, swing on by and get shit done.
Whole lotta love,
