The Possum, Issue#4 powerbar

Making comics is like pulling teeth, sometimes…..  Page #19 is currently sitting on my drawing board, half pencilled.  I jumped ahead and pencilled the last page already, so that leaves me with just under 5 pages to go, as far as pencilling is concerned.  I’ve inked up to page 10.  Once the pencilling is out of the way, that means most of the thinking and planning is finished, then it’s just a matter of hard work to finish the inking.  I’m getting really anxious to finish this comic, so that’s a good thing. 

Here’s a little sneek peak, at page 7 to wet your appetite!

Word on the Street 2008 report

 

Once again, Possum Press and Ultraist Studios spent Sunday, September 28th, at the Word on the Street Festival, in Toronto. This is an annual event, and our second time attending. We were blessed with two consecutive years of nice sunny weather, and lots of people visiting our table. I always love this event, because it brings out a lot of young kids, which is always fun.

This is the first show that we brought out our life size cardboard cutouts of Spy Guy and The Possum, which were used for the “Superhero Movie”, which came out last spring I believe. (I’ll have to do another post about that soon, as the stand-ups and my ugly mug made it into the movie)…….

A big thanks to everyone who came out, and spent a little bit of their hard earned money supporting our comics! (or their parent’s hard earned money). Maybe we can do it again next year!

Indie Comic Review, reviews The Possum #1

At last year’s Small Press Expo, Alex Haas, of “Indie Comic Review” got his hands on a copy of The Possum, issue #1.  (or maybe I gave him one).  His review is now up on the Indie Comic Review website, and you can click here to read it, or here, to read all of his other reviews.  Here’s a quote:

“The Possum tries to come off as an old-school super hero comic, of course, it also tries really hard to spoof that same format.  It succeeds brilliantly at both”

It’s all down hill after that…….. (well, actually it isn’t).
