Welcome to the Fun Zone!
I’ve been teasing this for a while and now it’s here. Cyril Brown’s Hybrid Zero fanart contest is now live. Artists are invited to reimagine any of Cyril’s, eye popping, characters in their own style. All entries received by September 30, 2019 will be placed online for two weeks, at BillMcSciFi.com, for fans to pick the top five and then our celebrity judges will select a winner.
The winner will get a $50 Amazon gift card, full page placement in Hybrid Zero: Juggernaut #2, a print copy for their collection, and the admiration of artists the world over. Unlike other comics, the Hybrid Zero line is printed in a full magazine sized format. As one fan noted, it’s orgasmic just to touch it.
You can feel safe sharing this with your artist friends. There are no fees or anything stupid. You don’t even need to sign up for a mailing list. Just submit.
For the full rules, and directions for submissions, just click THIS LINK and have fun.
I have overstock of all my titles cluttering up my living room. I will ship anywhere in the world, just ask first if you’re not on U.S. soil so I can figure out the extra costs. All titles shipped in the Continental U.S. are delivered via U.S.P.S. media mail and usually arrive within seven calendar days of ordering.
Currently, I have the following titles available.
Svarozic – A woman trapped inside a man, a god trapped inside a human. Since they’re all one person, she’s got issues. This is a very TEEN FRIENDLY comic. I wrote it to give trans kids a superhero of their own. It’s even got a Gypsy circus. Because every comic set in Russia needs a Gypsy circus.
Juggernaut – Set in the distant future, Juggernaut is the story of a human/alien fusion and her strange family. They live in an era where sexuality, in all its myriad forms, isn’t taboo but violence is. This group of aristocratic soldiers, who just happen to be related, must face down their own petty, in the grand scheme of things, problems and stop a trans-dimensional creature before it destroys the universe. Or not. It really depends on their mood at the time.
Legends Parallel – This is the perfect comic series for those who think quantum physics isn’t violent or sexy enough. Five earths and one woman wants to rule them all. This is the story of the man, his mom, and her lover who have to stop that from happening.
Jungle Grrl – In a distant future sex is encouraged, violence is frowned upon, and our hero, her bestie, and their dino clone, try to eke out a living in a sex park while figuring out the meaning of life. The existential poetry based on beer should be enough to make you grab this one.
Ruh Roh Rangers – This is the parody that’ll ruin your childhood but make your day. Those four meddlesome kids are now four meddlesome adults.
I have said before the writing I did for the new SPLICE movie script was some of the best I’ve ever done. Now, after a spate of beta readers have responded, including a couple who work for the Big 2, it appears I wasn’t far off. I won’t bore you with a plethora of comments and, instead, will just share one from the company that hired me in the first place.
“I think we have a BLOCKBUSTER on our hands; maybe a Writers Guild Award nomination?”
So, yeah, that’s me doing a happy dance, in my legendary tutu, down the street. Please don’t call the cops.
While I AM Fest wasn’t the rocking success I’d hoped, I didn’t sell a single book, I met some amazing creators and added a few to my friend’s list, as well as my email list. Also, to be fair, Kim & I enjoyed the SCHOOL OF ROCK acts. Seeing youngsters passionate about music and performing always makes me happy.
In summation, ENTER THE CONTEST, buy my shit, grab some McSciFi gear, and have a wonderful week.
In case someone forgot to tell you, you are truly amazing. I appreciate your support more than you know.
Talk to you next week!
