I know it’s been a while so I figured I would give you an update on things. I am still working on King of the Unknown, and there are only about 8 pages left to do the linework on, and then I have to color those and finish coloring the 5 other pages I was doing colors on. A number of things have kept me preoccupied from the King for a while, one of which was working on a few commissions for some extra cash. Check em out:
I figured both of these would be appropriate to share for obvious reasons (KISS, the Walking Dead? Uh, yeah, Duh!), and you guys would get a kick out of them. The Walking Dead one was actually done for Tom and Tara Alexander as a gift for Tom’s sister Laura (who is featured battling zombies alongside Daryl from the show). If you have picked up a copy of the Once Upon a Time Machine anthology from Dark Horse Comics (and if you haven’t, you should, because it’s awesome!), you may recognize Tom and Tara’s names…because both have stories in said anthology (as do King of the Unknown peeps Andrew Carl and Marcus Muller!) and they’re just all around swell people. Both commissions were a blast to work on, and I will definitely be doing more of these in the future.
Well, that about wraps things up, but I will definitely start running some full colored King pages soon. So be sure to keep checking back in as the plan is to get the comic back on schedule and start updating on a regular basis like it used to (remember that? Ahhhhh, good times).
The Sword and the Granny
I didn’t want to make you guys wait any longer than you already have to read new pages, so here’s a lettered black and white page. Updated color pages coming soon! I promise!
I had a bad case of the flu over the holidays, but things are getting back on track, I want to thank everyone who keeps coming back to the website for sticking with us while you wait for these meager updates. I really appreciate all of your support and hanging in there with me while I get this comic back on track.
All the best, and have great New Year!
Judo: An elderly person’s natural weakness!!! That and Werther’s Originals…
I’m still working on finishing up the linework for the rest of this story before I get into coloring these pages, but I didn’t want to keep you waiting so here is a black and white lettered page for you to read in the mean time.
Not too much is left of the story to finish illustrating, so I should have some finished colored pages for you to check out soon.
King just got punched by a granny!
Before I head to the east coast next week for the New York Comic Con and the release party for the Once Upon a Time Machine anthology at Locust Moon Comics in Philly, I figured I would post up one more lettered page of King of the Unknown linework for you to read. And if you’re at the New York Comic Con next week, stop on by and say “hi” to the other fine folks who worked on the Once Upon a Time Machine anthology at the Dark Horse Comics booth and in artist alley – TABLE X6. They’ll be selling a print of my artwork from the book! And if you can find me there at the table, I’ll have some more prints on me to sell, too! It’s an extremely limited run of prints though, so get them while you can!
I’m busy trying to get a readable version of this first King of the Unknown story done for the New York Comic Con next month, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging waiting to read new pages so I figured I would at least post the black and white lettered versions of the story while you wait for the colored pages to start posting again towards the end of October. If you haven’t been following along at the King of the Unknown Facebook page, I’ve already started doing this over there, so it might be a good idea to sign up for that as well so you don’t miss anything.
Thanks for sticking around everyone, I have big things planned for the King and his crew so please stay tuned!
