I’ll be at Small Press Expo (SPX) this weekend, the 17 – 18th! I’ll have perhaps the last comics from my original print run of The End, as well as Mechanaflux. So come out to Bethesda, MD and take a look at tons of indie comics this weekend!
Once again I am attempting a Kickstarter. Check out the link (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1945380719/mechanaflux-4) and you can read all about the synopsis and the current issue. But, here it is also.
Issue #4 sees the siblings Cory and Maria (who were separated at birth to grow up in two different realms [Earth & Flux]) become increasingly hostile of each other. Will they be able to work together to save the world?
The sorceress, Darius, has lost her powers, and seeks to regain them, but at what cost? And to do so, she must learn to communicate with the very unusual spirit of her planet and convince it to break the rules.
Check out the rewards for the comic and check out some of the art. If you can help spread the comic around on your social media sites, then that would be an amazing help. Thanks for looking.
When I started actually looking at Kickstarter for the first time, there were a ton of things to look through. I remember there being some 700 comic, film, and game projects (each!). I gravitated toward this comic book, The Shepherd, because it was a single comic book that told a complete story, had wonderful artwork, and was only $10.00.
The story was simple, but looked interesting: “Astrid, a young tribal shepherd who watches a flock of ghazals, must make some tough decisions when she comes upon a wounded Thanacht–a ferocious beast of legend thought extinct a thousand years ago.
Faced with the question of whether to help this predator which could easily hurt her or her flock, Astrid’s situation becomes even more complicated when a group of poachers show up looking for the beast, led by Rul, a hardened hunter obsessed with his search for the Thanacht.”
The above picture is what I got, along with a print by Joe Rubinstein. I supposedly also got got a 10 page digital comic prologue, but since I don’t own a single digital comic, I never picked that up. You can find the original Kickstarter here, but I never saw anything about buying digital versions in the future for those interested.
Mechanaflux #3 is now on Comixology! Is you’re following the webcomic, then you know Issue #3 / Chapter #3 has just ended. Well, now you can read the 3rd part now on Comixology. Will the Mecheers track down the amulet to Aria? And what powers does this half of the amulet posses? What will Maria and Cory do now that they know they are sibilings? Another full-color, 22 page issue awaits!
This weekend will be my last convention of the year, so come out to WVPopCon in Morgantown, WV. It’s a fun little convention. You can check out WVPopCon here:
I will be at Intervention in Rockville / Beshesda, Maryland. Intervention is a convention for people interested in comic books, music, video games, board games, movies, and podcasts. Check it out this weekend: https://interventioncon.com/
Sorry for the short post, as I am busy packing up for it. I will be there Saturday and Sunday.
You can now order the 2nd issue of Mechanaflux on Comixology. It’s exciting to see these issues go up on the largest digital comic platform in the world.
In this chapter, Arad, Cory, and Jackson finally meet up with the other half of the cast, meet a ‘fearsome’ dragon, and learn to fight…ok, RUN from metal death machines. You also learn the origin of Gaudra, the ruler of all of Flux, and the one on the verge of wiping humanity from the planet.
Come find me at Otakon this weekend! I’ll be at Booth S-07 in the Artist Alley. I am under ‘Padraic Productions’, not my real name.
I will also have 4 new mini-prints of Mechanaflux characters; this will be the first time they have been seen anywhere. So come and see Michelle Golden’s take on Redwing and Darius, as well as Kata Kane’s versions of Arad & Cory. You can get them for $5.00 a piece, or get one of your choice free if you buy all 3 issue of Mechanaflux!
You can now order a digital copy of Mechanaflux #1 on the largest digital comic book platform for only $0.99! It’s also available in HD according to the description.
So far, I have also put up my The End comics, Issues 1, 4, & 5. I’m still working on getting #3 up there, but 2 will not be able to due to the dimensions it was drawn in, but is available on IndyPlanet & ComicsFix. Warning, these comics are for mature readers only.
I haven’t put up my old comic, Displacement, just because I don’t know if it would be accepted based on the quality of the files, or even bought. I feel like I should just keep that comic where it is and move forward instead of making sure it’s available on every device and website ever (which, I am still going to do with Mechanaflux).
Square City Comics is hosting it’s first Open House at Fantom Comics. I and many other local Baltimore and DC writers and artists will be in attendance. You can meet and talk to us, attend our panels and workshops, participate in raffles, and see a sampling of our comic books (also for sale). You can also learn about the 3rd Square City Comics Anthology project; it’s theme, preview some art, and learn about the Kickstarter to help fund it.
Fantom Comics is located at 2010 P Street, 2nd Floor (the first floor has a Subway). The Open House will be from 11am – 4pm. You can view the Facebook Group below and invite your friends! See our Tumblr, also.
