The Boombox Cometh
Time to drop in for an update on the things going on around my way.
First up, my graphic novel is going well but had to be put on a pause for a bit. I had an opportunity come up that I just couldn't pass on. Don't worry, the graphic novel is under way and will get done, and this new thing is also an original project of my own.
Second, OZMA of OZ #1 is in stores now and you'll be seeing installments of that each and every month like clockwork thru out the year. WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ is available as a Hardcover, Softcover, and now Digitally via the Marvel App. MARVELOUS LAND OF OZ is available in Hardcover.
Thanks to everyone for supporting JUNK ONE. The sales on them have been amazing and I couldn't be happier. I had planned on putting out a new volume of that each year but will need a bit more time to collect the amount of art that it took to publish that on. So, the large 100pg art books may have to be every other year or so. This will give me time to have enough art to warrant the big, nice package that was JUNK ONE. But...
Don't worry. I've been filling up sketchbooks with pen drawigns at a crazy pace and have a new plan. There may be a larger gap between large art books but I'm going to fill it with smaller volumes of sketchbooks titled BOOMBOX. The books will be smaller, 48 page hardcovers collecting images directly from my sketchbooks and keeping things very raw and natural. The best thing is I'll be able to keep the prices nice and low. They'll be starting at $20. The first volume is ready and I'm just waiting of a few more things from the printer. If sales on BOOMBOX 1 are good and fast enough, I'll be able to put BOOMBOX 2 very soon after. I would love to be able to put out 2 of these volumes a year.
So, there's an update. Thanks again for all the love over the years. You all are amazing.
