It’s That Exciting Time of the Year!

Or, it would be if we could safely go anywhere. Still, thanks to Zoom, Facebook Groups, and other services, we can assemble virtually. Which is something. And it is something I’m going to be doing again. On August 29th & 30th I’ll be one of the hucksters at iNDEEvent

Put together by the indefatigable Meredith Loughran, the event breaks out nicely over the two days. Saturday, the 29th, there will be a day filled with panels, hosted by creators from all over the world. On Sunday, the 30th, it will be a sell-a-thon where you can scan a QR code, bust out your credit card, and buy, buy, buy!

What makes this event a little different than others I’ve done is that it’s exclusively for comic books. So I’ll be mad pimping Hadithi Sambamba Comix.

More below.

In other exciting news, SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY is now rolling out as a hard copy. It will be available through Barnes and Noble and many other fine retailers. If it’s not up in your area yet, just check in later. Given how understaffed some places are right now, it may take them a bit to update their websites.

Sadly, no matter how cool you think I am. I’m not always a priority to mega-corporations. 

Hopefully, that will change some day.

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.

Still some more to go.

In other comic related news, we have temporarily sold out of the Legends Parallel Graphic Novel. I will be restocking but, until then, we are offering it as a Print on Demand item. There’s no extra cost to you, so that’s one less thing to cause you grief. That said, there’s still a bunch of stuff you can enjoy, and find out more about at iNDEEvent next weekend. 

I’ll post appearance times next week, once everything’s nailed in.

Also, a quick update on the IBADAN COMIC CON in Nigeria. Due to lingering concerns about COVID-19, they are moving the date back a few months. They are working with Nigerian officials to make sure they comply with all health regulations but still can promote a fun event. They are hoping to have it all agreed to by this weekend. Once they have a hard date I’ll let you know.

In the meantime, here’s stuff you can check out now.

Set in the distant future, Hybrid Zero is the story of a human/alien fusion and her strange family. They live in an era where sexuality, in all its joyful panoply, is lauded and violence is taboo. This group of aristocratic soldiers 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. You know how things can get sometimes.

In a far future the universe has taken many unusual turns. Genetic manipulation has led to many unforeseen consequences. One is, after Earth had been destroyed, a group of rich investors rebuilt it to be an amusement park like nothing you’ve ever seen. Complete with sex forests and dino clones.

My take on The Oval Portrait has been included in a collection of sci-fi reimaginings of the works of Edgar Allan Poe featuring graphic artists who’ve worked on comics for Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man and more. It’s a really cool project and I’m honored to be a part of it.

As always, stay safe, sane and inside. If you can’t do that wear the freaking mask. 

Also, last week, sharp eyed readers let me know I was missing some pics in the collage I’d shared. 

I had no idea anyone paid that much attention.

Anyway, I found them, added them in, and now can present you a full collage of McSciFi Fun.

See you next week!
