The new Jackie Rose website is live, and so is the comic itself!
Some of you have read the first chapter of this book already, but I highly recommend reading it again. New pages have been added and dialogue has been changed.
Brand new updates will start Friday the 21st, and continue every M/W/F.
I’m so excited to finally share this book with you all!
Jackie Rose “The Treasure of Captain Read: Volume 1″ is on pace to be finished before this month is over, but in the mean time, I have a treat for you all.
My friend Michael Regina has finished his graphic novel “Adamsville” and he’s just launched the webcomic! The first 18 pages are already up and it will be updating on Mondays and Wednesdays.
I can personally testify that this book is fantastic, and if you’re a fan of the X-files, Super 8, or Fringe, you will definitely love it. It’s safe for all ages, so your kids will love it too!
A few weeks ago, I made the decision to split my book into two volumes, making volume one 152 pages. That being said, I am now 67 percent complete with volume 1. The pencils and lettering are finished and I’ve begun the submission process to publishers. As I continue to plow ahead with all of this, I decided to do the first pass at the cover. This may not be the final cover for the book, but I wanted to at least get an example of what the cover might look like for pitch and promotion purposes. I’m hoping to have the book finished by August 1st at the latest.
So I decided to give the logo a much needed update. It’s mostly just a polishing up of the old logo. Cleaning up the linework, improving the colors. The biggest change is to the skull. There was far to much detail and sloppiness there.
As for the book itself, I’m still moving ahead full speed. The new page count for the book is 262 pages. It’s a monster. I’m over 50% finished with the pencils. I’m hoping to be done with the pencils within the next couple months, after which I will be close to starting the submission process to publishers.
Originally I had planned on waiting until the book was fully finished to start submitting, but the more I learn about the industry, the more I feel confident that just having a book that is fully readable, with a good helping of finished art is more then satisfactory.
Anyways, back to work!
