Hot damn, I’m excited! We’re just about ready to launch the Kickstarter to fund the printing of our first volume of First Law Of Mad Science on Sunday night. One of the rewards is a brand new 68 page anthology issue called First Law of Mad Science: Science Club Mixtape. The issue will feature stories and art from some amazing people such as Shawn Aldridge, Frank Barbiere, Michael Bracco, Jason Copland, Anthony Del Col, Savanna Ganucheau, Leland Goodman, Mike Isenberg, Daniel Lapham, Conor McCreery, Jeff McComsey, Pete Toms, Sean Von Gorman, and me (Oliver Mertz)!
Here’s the amazing cover by Jason Copland with colors by Pete Toms.
We’re extremely please to announce that we’ll be collecting issues one through five and the flashback one-shot in an volume entitled, “Work Until Your Family is Sad.” Ryan Brown did an AMAZING job bringing this cover to life.
We’ll be launching a Kickstarter on soon to fund the printing. We’ve got some pretty excellent rewards planned so stick with us. In the meantime, check out this flippin’ excellent cover!
New to First Law of Mad Science? Check out the first ten pages of issue one!
Here’s the cover to issue 6! It was done by the incredible Toby Cypress. Daniel is hard at work on the issue itself and it should be done sometime soon. We’ll keep you posted!
Here’s one of Daniel’s rough sketches of the title page from issue 6. That’s right, issue 6 is in production and on the way! We’ve also got some surprises this year but for that you’ll have to wait until May 1st.
Who is this baby and why is it in a cardboard box? No good will come of this.
We’ve got a few big things in the works for early next year. I know we don’t publish on a regular schedule but it really means a lot that you stick with us. We’ll keep telling this story, no matter what. Anyway, happy new year from all of us working on First Law of Mad Science!
Well, it’s all over and it was incredible. Mike and I had an amazing time at the 2014 New York Comic Con. We got to hang out with old friends and meet some really cool people. We also sold a ton of comics! It was a great experience and it really meant a lot to us. Thank you to everyone who came up, chatted with us, listened to our long winded pitch, and then picked up copies of First Law of Mad Science, Dead Classic, and FUBAR. We hope to see you next year with even more!
First off, here is my haul from the show. David Mack, Dave Crosland, and Juanjo Guarnido were highlights of the show. Their work is so gosh darn amazing.
Our booth which we split with the super talented Michael Bracco. We worked with Michael Bracco on Dead Classic, a collection of our collaboration from the FUBAR series.
Mike and I rarely get to walk the show floor together. Usually, one of us has to stay at the booth at all times. So this is a first. You can see how excited Mike is.
I assure you, he’s not always so startled by photographs.
My new friend.
Found these two. I think I win life. Thanks again to everyone who made the New York Comic Con such a special time for us. See you next year!
Oh and we’re printing it in color! I think I’ve said this before but can you tell that we’re pretty flipping excited. So much more First Law of Mad Science is on the way. More details soon.
