Lost Property is printed ! The contributor copies for the post have been sent, and I am working my way through the rest of them, collating wildly. Hopefully I can sell almost all the run, as that way I can hide the hole in my bank before the wife notices ! We have made the funding for FQ available but I’ve done this out of my own pocket as I needed to, and those colour pages don’t half eat ink !

Tales of the Contrary has reached the stage where the cover is being done, so here are

The final tale for the collection, The captain, is the only stumbling block left to conquer- I know the illo’s that need to be done, yet I can’t seem to put anything on paper that I’m happy with. Need to relax I suppose and let it happen.

Also this week has seen me enlist Richmond to help with the greyscale on the Ghouls of Grafton Street. Intended for Solar Wind, here are the thumbnails I worked from

The strip has been delivered and Cosmic Ray has given it a thumbs-up, so I’m glad to be an androit once more!

Five minutes before I typed these words I put the finishing touches to FutureQuake and saved the document for the printers. At last. The next thing will be waiting for the printers to tell me I’ve made some awful error in the formatting and the comic is ruined; or not.

Ah well, I finish work today till Tuesday, and the Bolt clan are off to Blackpool for a weekend of roller-coaster action!

Rich, you are also going to make a share of any profit the comic makes too. Granted at £1.50 a pop it isn't going to make much, but fairs fair, you contribute a hell of a lot to the look of the comic.

Can I claim it against tax?

Bolt-01 said...

I reckon the forms will cost more than the earnings!

I think you're right on track and not many people are willing to admit that they share your views. continent fable lost is an AWESOME place to discuss LOST.
