Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3 Preview Art

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3 is debuting within the next couple of months and since we’re about halfway done with the book I have some preview art to whet your appetite. Like the previous issues, this one will feature mutliple short stories,

From SMPG: Year Over Fifty

From Pidol and Mamprin Present: It’s Just What Bros Do

I’ll have more to show once the book is complete! In the meantime, you can pop over to Facebook and join the Super Maxi-Pad Girl Facebook fan-page, that is unless you already are a fan, which in that case, you’re awesome! Or, you can take a gander at the C2E2 website and see all of the talent they’ve assembled for this inaugural show. I’m so overwhelmed, that I don’t know where to begin…

Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3 Cover Preview

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Hey all three folks that read this blog! Good news! Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3 is going to be off to the printers soon enough! I’m in crunch time right now as my soft deadline of Sunday, February 28th has come and gone. My hard deadline is this coming Sunday, but it will most likely get done before then.

Anyhow, here is the cover art for Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3. I need to make a few minor color matching tweaks and put a quick blurb on the front and voila, I’m DONE.

This issue is going to be pretty sweet. First, my good friend Danno Klonowski was kind enough to write an eight page “out-of-continuity” story. Secondly, My friends who are in the band Manor Drive were kind enough to create a Super Maxi-Pad Girl theme song, which you’ll be able to download after either purchasing a copy of Super Maxi-Pad Girl #3 or being a slag and waiting for it to just magically pop up on this website. Lastly, this issue will make it’s debut at the brand spanking new C2E2 comic convention in Chicago.

I’m so PUMPED!

C2E2 Sketches

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

As per Zander Cannon’s urging, I’ve been putting together some sketches to have at my table for the C2E2 show coming up next month in Chicago. Seeing as how I don’t have a known body of work outside of the 100 - 150 people that have purchased a Super Maxi-Pad Girl comic, he said it would be a good idea for people to see what type of work I can do in the form of sketches.

Well, given that there will be a bunch of comics on the table for purchase of characters that are likely not going to appeal to the prototypical fanboy, I thought putting together some colored sketches of some of my favorite superheroes might be attractive. Market penetration!

Now, I know a lot of people get down on superheroes, but truth be told they are an important part of comics history and the main reason for these fanfests in the first place. Personally, I still like superheroes, although I don’t buy too many books. So, without further ado, here is what I’ve put together so far, let me know what you think…I don’t deal with non-digital color usually.

I created this comic for the Lutefisk Sushi D collection where 120 or so copies of the mini-comic ended up. I created a handful more and finally got rid of the last one this weekend at C2E2. So, I’ve now collected it here for the enjoyment of everyone else. By the way, this is based on a true experience. Click on each image to bigify!

C2E2 Wrapup

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

The trip to C2E2 was a success! In fact, I’m kinda missing the hustle and bustle right now. Sure the car ride isn’t pleasant (about seven hours), but I’ve done longer rides with less of a positive outcome in the past.

Now, when I say it was a success, I mean it on multiple levels. We moved 30 copies of Super Maxi-Pad Girl #1, which isn’t bad for a self-publisher at a large convention, and approximately 45 to 50 books total. All of our Super Maxi-Pad Girl plush toys had sold out. We will be creating more, but for the time being, we’re out! It was the first time that I came back from a convention and was able to collapse a box for the ride home. Pretty sweet.

Also, fun times were had with some great people. On Friday, I hung out with Ryan Browne and met a whole load of his friends at the Top Shelf party. Saturday was pretty low key, as AJ and myself went out to dinner and subsequently got stuck in a gang neighborhood with Zander Cannon, Gene Ha, Stuart Moore, and Jim Chadwick. Sunday we had dinner with Zander and then played board games with awesome Oni Press people such as Jill Beaton, Cory Casoni, and James Lucas Jones, among others.

Lastly, we received a couple of reviews. First, there was this long article from Bleeding Cool. We also received a nice little mention from Chicago Now.

All-in-all, I’m glad we went. Here’s looking forward to more conventions this year. SpringCon is just around the corner!
