Time once again to check in on the multiverses of McSciFi. Last week, at the behest of the world’s greatest girlfriend (mine) we added personal delivery of any McSciFi merchandise as long as the buyer lives within one hour of South Chicago. We did our first, masked and socially distanced, delivery last Sunday and it was fun. We didn’t get any pics, sorry – I really suck at that, but we did drop off a copy of The Brittle Riders to an eager fan.
Also, speaking of merchandise, we have added several new options to the McSciFi GEAR tab. Plus sized T-shirts, bandannas, and more. There are over 120 options for each design. You can festoon your entire family, loved ones, and random strangers in all things McSciFi and still leave stuff unbought.
So, click THIS LINK to fulfill all your fantastic fashion fantasies.
As you may have heard, I have a couple of novels out. Hard copies of SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY and The Brittle Riders Omnibus Edition are on back-order, but headed your way. That said, if you want Book(s) 1, 2, or 3 of The Brittle Riders, just CLICK HERE to place your order. And, as noted above, if you live within an hour of South Chicago I’ll show up at your home with an autographed copy.
Now, he’s an enigma known only as Splice; a criminal mastermind with unlimited resources, cunning, and guile. A silent force who can make world leaders disappear in a miasma of blood and gore. But how did he get here? Where did he come from? The world may never know, but you will.
A brilliant man hosted a party. It was such a good party that it culminated in the death of all humanity. That story is boring and oft-told. This is not that story. This is the story of what happened next. The Brittle Riders, apocalypses are funny that way.
Check out the cool new promo graphics we have for each release.
Exciting news from Hadithi Sambamba Comix. After a long, and circuitous, journey, BOB: SINS OF THE SON is getting made. The whimsical story of the son of Death who wants to be a superhero in Chicago features a revamped Pater Noster and a little girl who makes sense of the world. His dad does not approve and his sister thinks he’s an idiot.
Originally written to be an over-the-top porn satire, the script ended up going in a different direction and, at times, becoming almost sweet. A couple of rewrites later and I had a wonderful, teen friendly, story packed with action and spirituality. The debut issue will not be an origin story and will, instead, leap right into the deep end. I felt that the family of death was a graspable concept and context clues could fill in any gaps as you read along.
The art will be handled by, the legendary. ghoulbeanz. She handled all the art on Savorzic back when she was known as SBRii. There will also be a new logo created by Nick Holmes from Antlur. Nick created The Brittle Riders logo and rebuilt the logo for Legends Parallel. I think it’s safe to say this is going to be one spiffy looking title.
A little more below.
On a sad note, my long time friend, and internationally renowned music producer, Howie Beno passed away suddenly yesterday. I won’t bore you with stories of our exploits and will, instead, say he led a life well lived.
And he will be missed.
In the meantime, stay safe, sane, and inside, and, if you have to go outside, wear a fucking mask.
See you next week.
