As some readers may know, I am an aspiring comic book creator myself. And while I’ve got some pans in the fire, I’ve also got friends trying to make it as well. One of those friends is Kristi McDowell, my co-creator on Gamer Girl & Vixen. She and our editor, Jamieson Alcorn, recently launched their latest project on Kickstarter called Fairytales From Mars. It’s an anthology of Martian fairytale stories by a host of awesome creators!
I have a lot of faith in my friends and their comic collection. I haven’t been given any special peek into the project, but I think all the artwork looks amazing.
You can read more about the anthology — and read the 4-page preview — at their website.
Mostly I just want to support my friends and co-creators with their next big project. So I am appealing to you, my readers, to head on over to Kickstarter and pre-order yourself a copy of Fairytales From Mars! I think it’s going to be neat!
I am very excited to announce that the Gamer Girl & Vixen graphic novel is fully funded as of this morning! It was another hard-fought campaign, but in the end, thanks to fans like you henchies, we blew past our fundraising goal and raised more than $11,000 on Kickstarter! I get to make more comics!
I want to thank everyone who ordered my comic and has been supportive over the years as I plug away at this blog. If this experience has taught me anything, it’s that it’s never too late to follow your dreams. They can be achieved, you’ve just got to get out there and do it. I wish I’d started writing comics years ago. But this is good enough for now. I can’t wait to share our hardwork with everyone. So stay tuned, more Gamer Girl & Vixen news is on the way! For now, I enjoy a well-earned victory!
The time is finally here to pre-order your copy of the Gamer Girl & Vixen graphic novel! As many of you henchies know, I’ve been working on my own self-published comic book for a few years now. Gamer Girl & Vixen is the story of two LGBTQ super villains who fall in love on all the wrong rooftops. I co-wrote the comic with my writing partner, Kristi McDowell, with art by Gemma Moody and lettering by Taylor Esposito.
Seriously, if you’re making comics, hire a professional letterer. They make all the difference!
We will be running the campaign for the entire month of April. The book costs $25, and comes with a personalized ‘Thank You’ written on a collectible Gamer Girl & Vixen postcard. And if I know you’re one of my readers, I can send you a special Henchman-4-Hire prize!
So head on over to my Kickstarter page and see it for yourself! There’s a link to read the first issue for free, to see whether or not you’ll like the comic. And if you order the printed graphic novel and let me know that you’re a henchie, I’ll send you something special when we ship the comics later this year!
Thank you, everybody, for your support through all this!
Hey there, comic book and blog fans! I’ve got some big news on the future of my own project, Gamer Girl & Vixen! We’re going back to Kickstarter on April 2! This time, we’re going to publish a gorgeous, full color, 100-page GG&V graphic novel!
So save the date!
We had a huge outpouring of support last year to kick off this project, and we’re going even bigger this time around.
Gamer Girl & Vixen is an LGBT-friendly comic about love, lesbians and larceny! When two costumed crooks meet cute on their college campus, they decide to go into the burglary business together. But playful flirting and brushes with adventure lead to real feelings. It’s a supervillain romance!
Making this comic has been such a huge blast. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and with Gamer Girl & Vixen, I’m finally getting out there and making it happen. I hope I can convince you all to help support the project next month.
To kick off the campaign this year, we’re offering everyone a FREE COPY of Gamer Girl & Vixen #1! Join our mailing list and you’ll be given a link to download the first issue! Read it for yourself, see what all the fuss is about. Then mark your calendar for April 2!
The last day of my Kickstarter has arrived, and we have knocked it out of the park! Gamer Girl & Vixen hit both its main goal and its stretch goal with time to spare! So I will be publishing THREE issues of Gamer Girl & Vixen this year thank to all of the lovely people who backed my project. I can’t thank you Henchies enough for putting up your own money to help me out! You people are spectacular!
If you’d still like to pre-order Gamer Girl & Vixen, now is the last chance!
I plan to keep this blog rolling with GG&V news as we work on the comic through the summer. We’ve got a lot of big plans for our little comic, so stay tuned!
