My friend Mike Korpi is a fantastic screen writer. He writes these amazing stories that remind me of Tales from the Crypt and the Twilight Zone. He now has his first opportunity to become a published comic book writer! It can only happen if the Kickstarter campaign for Wannabe Press’s Cthulhu is Hard to Spell: The Terrible Twos fully funds.
If any of you have ever bought a Wannabe Press anthology, you know the quality they bring. The stories and art are curated by the editors and the talent level is always high. Cthulhu is Hard to Spell : the Terrible Twos USA no different. In fact, they believe in the product so much, you can preview it by going to the Kickstarter page. This book features a bevy of talent that Mike and I are proud to join. Paul Jenkins who worked with an art hero of mine, Humberto Ramos, is on this book. You may know him from Hellblazer or Spectacular Spider-man & Fairy Quest with Humberto. He has a piece with Tony Donley from Myth and Legends. Ray-Anthony Height, artist on fan fave titles Spider-man, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and Wakanda-verse has an entry. The cover is done by Aaron Alexovich from Invader Zim! Wild!
There are other talented from publishers like Vertigo, Image and brands like My Little Pony. There really is something for every comic fan. You don’t even have to know anything about Lovecraft or the Elder Gods to enjoy these stories. Let it serve as a key to the gateway. So join us and get your free preview!
It took some work to format this book for print and for e-publication but Andy Nordvall and I got it done! We went with Ingram Spark, thanks to Kat Rocha from 01 Publishing for that. If you get a chance, check out their chilling Casefile: Arkham series! Special thanks to Jake Parker and his #Inktober movement for permitting us to use his imagery. Inktober was the basis and inspiration for this project and here’s to looking forward to this year’s challenge!
Our book is currently available on Amazon in e-book and paperback!
This is the layout for day 7 of Inktober.
For the month of Inktober, I’m partnering with Andy Nordvall of My Roommate, the Internet to bring you a fantastic tale. You’ll see the images here of concepts, sketch work and some finished, but you should head to our official Tumblr and get the whole story! Enjoy!
I moved to Los Angeles from Seattle as a kid. One of the things that fascinated me growing up here was graffiti. I was drawn to stylized scripts and pieces/bombing. A lot of kids spent time in class practicing their style. Here’s a quick doodle of how I write most of the time. There are various other styles to sample and explore, but this is the one that stuck with me.
When it comes to graf, as I’ve said before- I’ve never been a fan of tagging in particular. I do enjoy writing and have always liked when writing is highly stylized. I like to sit and practice every now and then. It’s funny that I usually have horrible penmanship.
Just making sure I don’t lose sight of being able to write, so I practice every now and then 🙂
Man, I gotta hand it to writers. The time it takes to write and conceptualize a story (to me) is pretty brutal. I’ve thought about Pablo as a comic for a long time. The drawings of him as a comic book character were never right until recently. Now I have to throw this package together for class and I only recently came up with a fuller concept with some plot points. Here’s a rough sketch of a character that will be involved. Thanks to everyone who has been following the blog and to those who have just joined. My teacher’s thrown a few curves and the class will be ending soon but that’s just his way of kicking us out of the nest. I’ll be refining a lot of the homework you’ve seen glimpses of and posting them here so stay tuned.
