Mutterings and rambles....

Quiet today, so I thought I’d have a mutter to myself over here…

Working on:
I’m still putting pages together for Duke Etranges’ World of Weird, and apart from one sizeable strip, this is almost ready. Lots of faffing around with page layouts still though.

I’ve just sent a strip off for colouring that features PHOTON! In a healthy slice of action.

I’m in the Greytones stage on Whistler- up to page 4 at the moment, nearly finished.

I’ve also broken the A3 out for a strip for NEXT YEAR’s Something wicked. A four page strip called on the cards. I’ll be lamping bits up for it as time goes by no doubt.

Latest from FQP:
All pretty quiet at the moment. Lots of scripts being read- some going to artists for future issues, others being worked on to make sure they are as good as can be.

DogBreath & Zarjaz
Oh yeah, this is good. I’ve just secured the cover artist for the next issues of these titles (Seeing as it is going to be our first Zarjaz I am even more chuffed) and as soon as I can say who it is, I will.

Peeps the butler droid has been pressganged into our service and is in the process of collating the current files for Zarjaz ready for transferring into the Bolt-01 ‘Beast’frame so that I can begin sorting the new issue. Plans are already underway for some mighty impressive happenings.

Teamwork, that is what makes things like FutureQuake possible. I know full well that I am part of a solid team and that if I need back-up I'll get it. Comics are by there very nature a solitary pleasure, yet the biggest pleasure I get in this mad hobby is actually meeting up with my fellow comic folk and having a good natter about stuff. I know that If I was trying to do all this on my own I'd go mad, so thanks and thanks again to all those folks who are part of the team at FQP.

The current crop of FQP titles is barely in print and I've already received all bar 12 pages of the next FQ, AND the cover!

The new website is doing well, though the forum is dead, mostly due to me being unable to add new bits to it that I'd like. However, I'm sure that as soon as our Webmaster notices the emails he'll sort it.

In other news I am assured that I'll have all the info I need to take over on Zarjaz soon, and the enigmatic Duke Etrange has camped out in my back yard and won't leave till I get his comic ready for him either.

I've also had to raid the FQP bank account in order to pay for not one, but two conventions for next year already! Next year is going to be a busy one- with Hi-Ex in Feb, Bristol in May and Brum con III in October! PHEW!
