Comic Shop Contest Almost Closed! Plus random news!
Hey guys! Deadline for the GET POCKET GOD IN YOUR COMIC SHOP is August 30. In case you missed it in some of our posts. We've loosened up our requirements to include local book stores that hopefully carry comics! Get your picture taken next to the comics, or graphic novel section!
Also, I've been very busy this week. Working on marketing graphics and best of all, the Pocket God figure box! I'm crossing my fingers that everything goes well with the figure. We've seen the prototypes and moulds and examples of past work so we're hopeful we won't have another manufacturing blunder!
As for the comic, above is a sneak preview for issue 2. The Pygmies venture away from the island in an overturned turtle shell. If you read the comic, you'll know that a blunder caused damage to the "gem of life" which enables their perpetual resurrection, so they decide to travel to a legendary temple to fix it. But guess who's waiting for them in the water?
For everyone who purchased the digital comic, we have a surprise for you! Between the issues Ape is going to submit updates that will include a magazine called the Pygmy Peril. It will include replies to comments on iTunes, various articles, exclusive art and more. Be on the look out!
I haven't had a chance to recap the Wizard World conference. The guys at Wizard World were really awesome to us. And we were happily surprised at how many people stopped to talk to us, buy comics and get signed posters! Here are some images!
Blagojevich stopped by the booth!
Some fans dropped off art! This is a cool map created by Austin Stengel, explaining the location connections!
Adults, teens and kids stopped by the booth, but a few were too cute not to photograph
Buy the comic, get a free poster!
We gave out prizes for beating Dave at the Runs!
Dave gave a presentation with one of his clever titles. I made him a slide.
