Since this blog is primarily going to be concerned with how the comic came together, it's going to be mostly living in the past. But every once in a while I'll share with you what's going on right now.
For instance, I just sent Shawn the letterer an email saying the last bit of corrections for chapter 3 are good, which means the book is now 3/4 of the way done. And since we're so close and we've got a fairly firm release date, I decided it's time to strut:
Here's me at this past weekend's New York Comic Con, rocking the very latest in fashion: my Hero House t-shirt (a very thoughtful X-Mas gift from my very thoughtful penciller, Mike Dimayuga). I could be spotted sporting the shirt on two panels that I moderated, as well as walking the floor, like I was when I got my pic snapped here with my buddy, Marvel.com editor Ryan Penagos.
(Please forgive my weird facial expression - Ryan's friend was trying to snap the picture on Ryan's super-futuristic phone, and as a result we were standing like that for about 90 seconds, unaware of exactly when the pic might get snapped.)
So that's where we are right now - the book's almost but not quite done, and the merchandising has already begun.
