I watched my first ever March Madness game this month; goosed some brews, had some laughs, lost $2 on bets. If you're wondering why St. Joe's lost, the consensus in the room was it was Zach's sister's fault
Where we at on what we do? Well!
The mysterious KQ from last month was, in actuality, the Killer Queen anthology from Red Stylo. I'm doing "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon", no idea who's drawing it yet.
Knuckle Children is up to 18 total pages; Scott's done inks on 7 of them, and they look great.
New to the board are TMUB and GDF:M; TMUB being The Most Unkindest Bite and GDF:M being The Grave Doug Freshley movie script.
The most Unkindest Bite is a rework of a project Marv and I were doing, a vampire/spy job. We did a 48 page comic, I hated, uhhhh, every line of dialogue I wrote? so, we're dusting it off and reworking it as three eight pagers. Marv compressed it. I was mostly meant to be doing a dialogue pass, but ended up rewriting it pretty extensively, just from working backwards from my awful dialogue.
I hesitantly sent Marv the first eight pages, with a "heeeeeey, guess who went off the reservation on this...", but he was cool with it. So I'll keep on keeping on.
I meant to do a dialogue pass on the Grave Doug Freshley movie script, but, well, I've just not gotten around to it. I hasten to add that we've not sold the property for adaptation, this is just a script to make it easier to do so (in theory).
Speaking of movies, Jorge's friends made an indie flick to be shown in select theaters and Mexican national television and guess what book shows up in it?
You can catch the trailer here. It looks like a pretty fun flick.
What else...? Well, I've started hand-scripting stuff, then typing it up. Almost had an apoplectic fit when an iTunes update's restart ate a Knuckle Children script, but other than THAT, I'm finding I enjoy it. And it keeps my panel descriptions pretty spare, which is a good thing.
Not officially on the board is a Robin Hood dumb-jokes-and-fights comic I'm not sure what I'm doing with yet. Right now, I'm basically just going through Howard Pyle's Merry Adventures of Robin Hood and adapting stories in little eight page chunks. I'd like to draw it, but I'd also like to draw, period. Like I said, no idea what I'm doing with it yet.
