The Final Stretch of Book 4

Long story short, Book 4 has taken a while, but the end is in sight!

When I first started the series I drew for 9 months straight, treating it more than a full time job, living off unemployment and savings. I produced books 1-3 in that time and got in a rhythm. Then I ran out of money and had to get a job again.

Book 4 has taken 17 months.

A combination of reasons behind this, mostly not finding enough time to devote to the book. Some weeks I'd get less than a page done. Tough to finish a 50+ page book at that rate!

So it has taken a long time, but it is almost done, and the urgency is on since it'll appear in Previews by the end of this month!

I have 8 pages left to draw, and my goal is to be finished by the end of the 4th of July weekend. It will have been listed in Previews for almost 2 weeks at that point. I'll have a few weeks to polish it before it'll go to the printer in early August, hitting store shelves sometime in September.

Oh, and if I hadn't mentioned, it's got an alternate cover by Charles Paul Wilson III. It's gonna rock.

I have the Boston Comic Con coming up July 31- August 2, and will then be at a small press table at the New York Comic Con October 8-11.

Then I'll need to start writing #5!
