Paradise Toronto Comicon: June 8-9
“like tasty Ottawa Bagelshop bagels slathered in garlic cream cheese, you will be hankering for more of the Possum.”
Suzanne Marsden has written a very nice review of the Possum on her blog, Kunstpike art Flog. Thanks Suzanne!
Update: Suzanne has just recently posted about issue #2, and put in a nice plug. Read what she has to say here, and check out the rest of her blog while you’re at it!
OK. Nap time is over. Besides working my full time job on Wayside, I’ve got a million other things on the go. Of course, I have to get going on The Possum #3 comic, as well as continue with this childrens book I started illustrating for a friend. (I’ve been putting this off for too long). I was also asked to contribute a few pages to an anthology comic being put out by the fine folks at the Indie Spinner Rack, and the deadling for that is April 1st. I’m going to be putting in a 2 page Possum story that was posted here a while back, but I have to add panels, and modify it to fit a comic book format. The anthology comic is going to debut at the Small Press Expo in October, in Maryland. Before I get The Possum #2 back from the printers, I have to update my website and store, and work on getting this thing distributed, as well. APE is also coming up soon! Oh, and we’re getting ready to sell our town house and move to something a bit bigger. (decluttering, putting things in storage, looking at houses etc.)
I think there is something else that I am forgetting. I need to get myself a day planner……., now where did I put my kids……. I hope Rochelle is with them.
Well, at 1:16 am last night, I finished up the last bits of issue #2, burned it onto CD, and went to bed. So that means Issue #2 is officially done!! It should be back from the printers in 3 to 4 weeks, so start saving up those nickels. I’ll post a sneak peak of some of the pages soon, (keep checking back), and I’ll have it up on the Possum Press store to order, in a couple of weeks as well. Time for a nap.
I went to a used book store at lunch today, called BMV, here in Toronto. They have a pretty good selection of used comic books, and as I was sifting through the “P” section, I found a copy of the Possum #1 for $2.99, right next to some old “Plop” comics! HA! The Possum has hit the big time! It was even signed! It was actually kind of neat seeing it pop up somewhere that I shop at, every now and then. (Especially because it isn’t actually being distributed yet). At least it wasn’t in the quarter bin.
Today I inked the final page of The Possum #2! 8 pages left to do tones on, plus all of the extra stuff, like letters pages etc. Next week is the deadline to get it done for APE.
