Salvete, Amiculi! It's been far too long.
So as you are all probably intimately aware, the thing to the left happened a few days ago. I've made my order, and my first batch of prints will be arriving within a week, and the kickoff to the Amiculus journey will start on April 12 at SPACE. Who knows where it will end?
From there, work will begin on the 2014 Kickstarter campaign for Volume I: Roma Aeterna, set to kick off in early June (exact date TBD). There will be exciting new art, incentives, a new trailer...it'll be a Cecil B Demille-grade event, sans Charlton Heston and the Red Sea doing things unnatural for that particular body of water.
I highly recommend checking out the list of exhibitors when you peruse the site. The atmosphere of the event is fun and dynamic, and there will be over 200 wildly-creative artists showing and debuting new and exciting works of sequential art that you won't be able to find anywhere else. If for no other reason, check it out for that.
More to come soon!
Happy March, Amiculi!
The next few posts will be shorter status updates proceeding to the debut of Amiculus at SPACE. In this one, I'm pleased to announce that lettering for the preview volume has been completed! No creative elements now remain between this book and its upcoming limited print run.
If you haven't had the opportunity to peruse the SPACE website, there's a brief synopsis of the Amiculus preview there as a premiere comic. Check it out, and while you're there, familiarize yourself with a few of the other great books on display there, by creators ranging from neophytes to seasoned pros. It's a fantastic indy print expo, with some real gems of art and storytelling.
