Oliver and I have been pretty busy lately. Whenever we’ve got something to share with folks, it always feels like it’s quicker to throw it up on our Facebook page, rather than put together a blog update. Laziness on our part; not good! We’re going to try harder to keep this blog up-to-date and interesting. In the meantime, here’s a few things that should have been here a while ago:
Issue #3 cover, from the ever-talented Jamie Noguchi! The rest of the issue is almost done. I just need to finish the lettering.
Here’s a sneak peek at issue #4. These are Daniel’s pencils for page 1.
FUBAR: Empire of the Rising Dead made the New York Times Bestseller list! Oliver and I wrote two of the stories in this book, so I think that means we’re allowed to call ourselves “New York Times Bestselling writers” now. Seriously, though, congrats to everyone who worked on the book!
Here’s an email interview we gave just after Intervention Con in Maryland last year.
Here’s a new review of First Law, from a few weeks ago.
I think that’s it for now. As I said, we’re going to make an effort to be better about updating this blog in the future. Right now, though, I need to get back to work on lettering Issue #3!
Hey folks. Sorry for the long silence. Got so busy over the holidays and then with the new semester of grad school that I forgot I had a blog to update! Anyways, we may have been quiet but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been hard at work. Here’s what’s new at the First Law of Mad Science laboratories:
- The script for issue #2 has been finalized! Woo-hoo! Production should start pretty soon.
- Oliver has already knocked out a rough draft of the issue #3 script from our outlines. That boy is fast! This should mean a lot less downtime between issues two and three.
- Publisher pitches and synopses have been finished and mailed out. There’s still one or two more “long-shot” submissions we’ll probably make, but at this point we’re just playing the waiting game.
- I’ve just today received the Kickstarter special edition prints. Non-autographed copies should get mailed out to Kickstarter backers in the next day or two; autographed and special-edition copies will be doing a little cross-country postal tour to get creator autographs in NY, MO, and VA before they get mailed out to backers.
- We got interviewed by Lisa Fary at Pink Raygun after our New York Comic Con appearance. Go check it out!
- We’ve gone international! Mathieu Doublet picked up a copy of the NYCC edition before heading home to France and writing this review. Neither Oliver nor I can read French, but from the bits that still made sense after passing through GoogleTranslate, it looks like a positive review? We think? (If anyone out there wants to give this a proper translation, we’ll happily send you a free copy of the comic as thanks!)
