Newsletter #2

It's been a busy couple of months around BMB studios. Not only did I manage to get issue #1 of Woodstalk: Three Days of Peace, Music, and Zombies off to the printer, but locally I had a sculpture accepted into the Great Lakes Small Works show at the Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanti, MI, and not so locally I had a piece commissioned for the exhibit Situation: Anophthalmus hitleri in Maribor, Slovenia, that opened yesterday as part of the 2012 European Capital of Culture program. And tonight, Saturday, a new sitcom pilot airs on TBS at 10:00pm called Wedding Band. Why am I shilling for TBS? Because back when they shot the pilot, they requested to include Goodnight Keith Moon in one scene! So while I'm keeping my fingers crossed that our scene didn't get cut, I'm thinking, hey, maybe you want to check it out tonight. Anyway, it's got Jan from The Office and Michael from LOST, so even if GKM was cut, it should totally be worth your time.
But, really, lets get back to Woodstalk. It went to the printer on Halloween, so it can be in your shriveled, lifeless hands by the beginning of December if you preorder now. As I plan to do with every issue, it's available for free online viewing at graphicly.com – stuff on the internet should be free, right? And by December there will be an eBook version available there as well, for $0.99. 
But the print copies are where it's at, brothers and sisters! There are only going to be 500 of them (each one signed, of course), and quite a few have already been preordered. I highly suggest clicking the big black What I Do button up there and snagging a copy (or two) yourself. They're gonna be perfect for the holidays. And I know they won't last long. You can even print out the little order form attached to this post, take it to your favorite comic store, and ask them to order it for you – then THEY pay the shipping. :)  Hey, it might work...
Time to get back at it, issue #2 is already under way. It's titled What's Wrong, will be written/penciled by me, inked/colored by magic-fingered Britton Sukys of Tacoma, WA, and the cover will again be by the Twin Cities' soon-to-be-world-famous Adam Turman. More on that in another couple months...
Take care, and keep reading! (except tonight, watch TV tonight.)
