So i've been getting a few reports that some people's comic stores are receiving THE GOD MACHINEnext week on the original release day of the 28th. Other stores received the book on it's early release on the 21st. I can't figure out what's up with that, but a little patience my friends in receiving it!
Speaking of which, I heard one report that DCBS.com sending out one person's order of THE GOD MACHINE.
Also! tfaw.com SOLD OUT of The God Machine. Wooo! They'll reorder the book but it will take about 2 weeks for them to get it back in. Luckily I found 2 other sites who are offering The God Machine as well.*
But you might be asking, "Chan, why is everything in pencil and written like a weirdo?" Glad you asked!
Mission Statement Time!
"The Rough Cut Series is meant to be a preview/web comic of my comic series, "The God Machine." It's taking the original scripts and draft pages, and translating them to pencil only comic pages. There are no inks, formal fonts, or even blacked in areas. The idea behind this is to get you into the series before it comes out to print. Now when the comic goes to print media, you'll see the art work polished, inked, proper lettering, extra jokes, re-writes of the script, sometimes re-ordered panel layout, totally new pages, and bonus material. That way if you really like the project, you won't feel gypped that you'd be buying content that's already free online. Think of this as a preview, and a glimpse into the process in how I make comics.
The God Machine is published by Archaia. The first issue comes out Oct. 28th 2009."
That's it! Welcome back~!
p.s. Eventually I try to set up a Comic Press thing on my web site, but currently I don't have the time for that. So DA will have to do for now. I don't feel like uploading to Comic Space anymore. :(
My friends A. Dave Lewis and Saurav Mohapatra have just launched a new message board, Beyond the Bleed to promote the discussion of comics, and give a forum [ha ha] to creators to talk about their process, thoughts, and projects!
Currently lots of Archaia creators inhabit "the Creatorium" Patrick McEvoy, Kat Rocha, Jason Becker, Tom Pinchuk, Mark Smylie, yours truly of course, and many others!
-So please sign up. This is where i'll be having my message board discussions for now. So if you have questions, insights, musings, whatevers about my comic and work, please feel free to talk about it in my section. And please do participate in the other discussions in the main boards, and say hello to your favorite Archaia creators. :)
