Also reviced my copy of Popgun 4 in the mail, nice glossy brick.

Lot of comics to absorb in there, will write about it later when i do, haven’t really had the chance yet.

The Launch party notice was listed on Boing Boing, Found an early review of it here, and D.J. has a press round up posted here.

Previews Interviews and Reviews: GHOSTBUSTERS SPECIAL: TAINTED LOVE

cool: Newsarama is previewing our book this week, and saying nice things. Always awesome, thanks guys!

Also kind of awesome, we got a good review on Hypergeek, 4 out of 5 stars! Glee!

More kinds of awesome, another Review here by J. Caleb Mozzocco on EVERY DAY IS LIKE WEDNESDAY! AND, he did an interview with Dara on Blog@Newsarama! Nice.

Not as cool: IDW strangely sent out a horrible pdf to use for the preview!
Huh? Rats, they make my hand lettered text look like MUD! Mentioned this to the PR folks at IDW when i saw the pdf myself but….hmmmm…hurrrm…hum.

Well, not to gripe to much or look the gift horse in the tonsils, here’s the preview page, but read the one’s i posted here below, ok? Images link to lage files on flickr that will open in a new window. Also you can use this full screen slide show, which includes all the other art I’ve posted from the book so far. These versions of the pages are from before final proof readings so some typo’s may be included.

There was an awful truck accident and problems with customs that’s resulting in delays in shipping, but it is on it’s way. Ask you’re local Brick and Mortar shop about it, or order online.

News on Ghostbusters: Tainted Love

Crap. We busted our asses to get it done in time but the last people, officials, or weather events in the food chain always have the last say. I was assured it was on time last week, but i just read this from Dara….

Hey guys, Dara here. I just found out the scoop on this book’s erratic ship date. Apparently what made it miss the original ship date for the week of Valentine’s Day is that it got held up in customs. But here’s where the story takes a tragic twist: it is officially hitting stores this week (17th), except for most of the East coast. The truck from Diamond Distributors that had all of IDW’s books on it for the East coast stores was involved in a very bad weather-related accident. My understanding is that the driver(s) are in critical condition in the hospital.

So needless to say, it’s a very unfortunate event and I hope that everyone involved pulls through and makes a full recovery.

Man, that sucks. Hope the drivers pull through.

Customs on the other hand, I’ve no love for those guys, give people like little sisters grief all the time. What in the world they held us up for god knows, but nothing new.

Tainted Love

When does Ghostbusters: Tainted Love Come out in comic book shops?

The guys at IDW tell me it should hit the stands on the 10th. That may vary in some Canadian locations but I’m assured it will make it. I’m crossing my fingers and things.

It was made with love, and can be yours just in time to be a gift for that special geek in your life. :) Along with the art here below, you can catch a preview of the book on brokenfrontier.com, and a few words from Dara about his story!

$3.99 – Diamond Code: DEC09 0906

Also pretty cool, is you can get this book as an App for you’re IPhone, Touch, or Pad eventually, just $1.99 for that. My first app, didn’t have much with formating it, will have to get my girlfriend to get it so i can see how it reads.


Fist post of 2010

Starting a few other new projects this year, web comics fully, & i have some Dream Life pages long awaiting inking. Hoping 2010 is better than the last one, dang ’09 sucked.

I wrapped up the Ghostbusters book for IDW, bumpy ride but came out well. It’s inspired me to do some work cleaning up my cleaner B&W work, look for that in the web comics i mentioned. Here’s the press blurb and Diamond code for Tainted Love, there are two covers but that’s not a gag, i asked to do one after they already had commissioned one from Nick. Click here for all my Ghostbusters related posts.

Story: Dara Naraghi – Art: Salgood Sam

Love is in the air-literally!-as Winston befriends an attractive woman with a ghostly problem in her apartment. But trapping the love-struck apparition proves to be more complicated than the Ghostbusters originally thought. Can Winston step up and save the day? Just how far will Peter go to find a date? And do Ray and Egon ever stop to think about girls, or is it always about trans-dimensional ectoplasmic anomolies with those two?

FC – one-shot – 32 pages – $3.99 – Diamond Code: DEC09 0906

Here’s page one, the silly gangsters are not really a big part of the story, but Dara thought it would make a fun taster for you all. There’s a little more art here.

Working overtime, had to miss the con….

Was planing to attend the Montreal Comic Con today, but had to skip it in favor of inking for the Ghostbusters book. Blew most of my slack at the start of the gig attending cons and stuff, so it goes.

Pages are coming out well, nice to get back to a simple inked line. been considering pulling back on dream life to something like that. Was my original plan, to do it B&W. Might be the best one as far as getting it done anytime soon.

can always colour and tone it later if i want to.

Speaking of colour, here’s a peek at a colored Ghostbusters page by my man, Bernie Mireault.

GHOSTBUSTERS : TAINTED LOVE

ecto1ontherun

It’s been a while since i did a WFH deadline driven gig, good to be back at it though i’m a bit rusty with the time management it seems.

Word has been getting out so it’s safe for me to post about it, doing a comic for the franchise of another one of my childhood favorites, Ghostbusters!

Re watched the movies of course, that was fun. Unlike many they hold up well today, really great films. Least i think so.

Hope i can do the comic version justice. we’re not useing likenesses but i am trying to chanel the feel/type for the orriginal cast. The plot is a punchy fun short story, a valentines, with a hint of horror and cutie for Winston in it! Working with Dara Naraghi for the first time on this, with IDW. It’s going a bit slow but the art i think is coming out looking good, eh? A long time collaborator Bernie Mireault is going to be doing colors for the interiours. I also got to go to town doing an alternate cover seen here. spent too long on it but it was worth it. Bellow i’m posting some other rough art and the group shot that got me the gig.
