Lots of teasers for The Pride Adventures #1 here!
The Pride Adventures #1 is available for pre-order on IndieGoGo now! Much cheaper than retail price, and perks to get copies of The Pride too!
Spread the word and show your support!
I really hate to make this announcement, but due to a number of circumstances during the production of The Pride, the publisher has decided to put the series on hiatus until such a time as more of the series is completed and ready to go.
The series will then be relaunched, hopefully with a much more concrete release schedule. The relaunch will include a new edition of issue one, and we’ll see about maybe getting some new variant covers done.
To all the IndieGoGo funders: YOU WILL STILL BE GETTING ALL YOU FUNDED FOR. It may just be a little later than we originally hoped and planned for. In fact, you funders who helped us on the first steps towards making this project will get each issue as and when we can finish them. As such, you should still be getting each issue before general release.
Again, I’m sorry for the inconvenience this causes, and I hate to let you all down. But work is continuing on the project and going fast and well now, so before long The Pride will be coming at you again, bigger and better than ever.
Thanks for your continued support.
A pic from my sold out “Pin-Up Show” mini-mag available as a perk with the PinUp postcard set 4 preorder here: http://www.indiegogo.com/Pin-Up-Show-Postcard-Set-4-1
NSFW: A stunning example of the great model and photos that make up Trevor Wayne’s Pin-Up Show postcard set. I’ve bought the first three sets and funded this now too. It’s well worth it.
Plus, Trevor is the inspiration for White Trash in my comic, The Pride. Make of that what you will :)
So, obviously, I used IndieGoGo to raise funds for The Pride. We did well, beating target, but that money is pretty much all used now. It went to pay the artists involved in the first issue only, two-three print runs to take to conventions and send to the funders. And also posting said goods out (which in the current economy took a lot more than I was counting on).
It was also a really great preordering system for spreading the word, and getting comic into the hands of people far and wide, not just in the UK.
Since then, the series has had to go bi-monthly, and this presents me with an interesting opportunity.
I was thinking of starting IndieGoGo projects to fund individual issues as a way of preordering them.
Obviously, the people who funded the original campaign need not take part in these ones (they’ve preordered all the comics etc), but it would be a way of getting the comic out to more people, especially people who want to read but aren’t based in the UK.
Obviously a much lower target for each one, really it’s more for letting people preorder things than anything else.
So, what does everyone think? This a good plan?
So, guess what? I am writing on another comic. Maybe I mentioned it. It’s called Stiffs, and it’s one of the most awesome things I’ve ever had the chance to be a part of.
It’s funny, I mean, seriously funny. It’s got some fantastic horror, brilliant action sequences, and great twists.
It’s written by some of the best writers I know, Drew Davies and PJ Montgomery, and features some of the best work by superstar artist in the making Gavin Mitchell I have ever seen. And some stunning colours Adam Cadwell and Kris Carter.
The series has been seen by some early readers when we released a special early edition at Thoughtbubble last year, and it went down real well.
And on Indiegogo for the next few hours, there are great savings and perks for preordering.
So if you like The Walking Dead, Spaced, Buffy/Angel, zombie horror films, hell, all horror films, The Fades, Being Human, then you will absolutely frickin’ love this!
Also, it’s set in South Wales, so that’s new :)
Support my other comic project, Stiffs, today!
Once again, the project is on IndieGoGo, and has amazing perks for preordering, but only for a limited time!
Stiffs is a horror comedy set in the South Wales valleys, featuring Don Daniels and his sarcastic talking monkey
life partner companion, Kenny McMonkey, as they face the undead hordes of the Welsh countryside. Add to this black magic, booze, kickassery, monsters, emos and doobies! and it’s really a quite marvelous little affair!
Every little helps, so please fund what you can and preorder as many copies as you want!
There’s even a limited chance to feature in the comic as a zombie, drawn by the amazing Gavin Mitchell!
New The Pride #2 coloured page came last night. Last night was a good night for me and The Pride
Still available for preorders. All my American followers should use this to make sure you get your copies.
