Happy Thanksgiving from Gamer Girl & Vixen!

Happy Thanksgiving, henchies! I come to you with some exciting new artwork and news about my home-brewed comic book, Gamer Girl & Vixen! Not only are we shipping out issues to all of our Kickstarter backers (including some of you lovely people!), but we’re also on the verge of an even bigger couple of announcements!

But first, I wanted to share some of this amazing GG&V artwork from superstar artist Gemma Moody! We work her artsy fingers to the bone, and this is still the love she shows us!

We’re not ready to share the big news just yet, but this artwork was too good not to show off. I know I haven’t written about Gamer Girl & Vixen in awhile, but that’s going to change! I’m living the dream with a great creative team, and I want to shout it from the rooftops!

So keep your eyes peeled and glued to this blog for some big Gamer Girl & Vixen news next week! And we’ll have even more news after that. And even more after that! I’m making comics here, and it’s as much fun as I hoped it would be!

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Help Me Kickstart Gamer Girl & Vixen!

The Gamer Girl & Vixen Kickstarter exploded out of the gate, my friends! I launched the campaign last Saturday and we’ve already blown past 50% funded. You Henchies have been reading along with the production of my comic for months now, so you can imagine how exciting these past few days have been. A couple of you have already pledged – and I’m eternally grateful – so now I’m here to convince everybody else to get on board!

We’re offering a lot of great rewards at low, low prices, and every pledge tier comes with a Gamer Girl & Vixen comic! If you’d like to pre-order my comic, now is the time!

Check out Gamer Girl & Vixen on Kickstarter! 

Cover to issue #1

You Henchies have already seen a ton of behind-the-scenes stuff on GG&V so far, but now the rest of the world is getting to peek inside everything we’ve been working on and it’s a lot of fun. If you’re interested in learning a bit more, you can check out a couple great interviews at Comics Alliance, The Outhousers and Rhymes with Geek.

And there’s our first official review at Word of the Nerd!

People are really responding to Gamer Girl & Vixen and it’s more exciting than I could have possibly imagined! I invite all you Henchie readers to visit the Kickstarter and check it out for yourselves. Do it for your old pal/favorite blog writer Sean!

Gamer Girl & Vixen Kickstarter Launches on May 16!

Save the date! Now that the first issue of Gamer Girl & Vixen is complete, we’re taking this party to Kickstarter on Saturday, May 16! We’re going to raise money to make a second issue of our comic, and then get some print copies into everybody’s hands!

This is exciting! We’ve been working on this comic all year so far, and I’ve been reading everything I can about how to run a successful Kickstarter campaign. We’ve got a great page ready to go, some great art to show off to everybody, and some even cooler rewards to hand out to all our backers.

Hopefully I’ll be able to convince some of you fine Henchies to pledge some money towards my comic. Don’t worry, it’s not a requirement to keep reading this old blog! Just keep in mind that I’m probably going to be talking my head off about my comic once the Kickstarter launches!

As if I’m not doing that already!

Remember to mark your calendars! May 16 is the big day!

Gamer Girl & Vixen: The First Issue is Complete!

Today is an exciting day, everybody! The first issue of Gamer Girl & Vixen is done! The colors, the lettering, the putting everything together in the right order; it’s all done! I have a comic book! It’s taken a few months of hard work, but it will all be worth it when you and all of our other potential fans of the comic in your hands.

Next comes the road to Kickstarter in a little more than two weeks! We’ve got to put a few finishing touches on our Kickstarter campaign, and thanks to the help of some of you wonderful Henchie volunteers — Karen Lin, bblast616, buns134 and Maus Merryjest — we’re going to have a kickass campaign with fair prices and awesome rewards!

In fact, double thanks to Maus for giving my comic a write-up on his Tumblr!

I cannot thank you Henchies enough for following along with this dream project and lending a hand where you can! It’s why I love the Internet.

As always, if you’d like to follow along with further Gamer Girl & Vixen production, just head on over to our website GamerGirlandVixen.com. And I’ll have more information on the Kickstarter as we get close!

Gamer Girl & Vixen: Artist Power Up!

I’ve got a fun little artistic treat for everybody today: another finished page of Gamer Girl & Vixen #1! But this page is actually kind of special in that you’ve already seen it before, a long time ago. This is Page #11, the moment where the girls meet and decide, almost instantly, that they need to work together.

When we first started working on Gamer Girl & Vixen last fall, we had series artist Gemma Moody whip us up six preview pages from the middle of the book to pitch to comic book publishers. Well between that preview and her work on the current issue, Gemma really leveled up her skill and style!

Check out the differences between the original page from last fall and the new page that’s going in the comic!

Though I’m going to miss that cat…

 

The change is pretty dynamic! We hired Gemma for her awesome, adorable art in the first place, and she’s only gotten better! Gemma also colored both pictures, and she did the lettering in the original page. The new letters are done by Taylor Esposito, and the difference is astounding. Trust me, good lettering is worth the price.

The first issue of Gamer Girl & Vixen is almost done! We’re still gearing up for the Kickstarter next month, putting the finishing touches on our page and all our rewards. If you’d like to help out with promoting the comic and the Kickstarter, let me know in the comments. Any and all help will be very appreciated.

And if you’re interested in following along on production, check out our website GamerGirlandVixen.com. The closer we get the more excited I get!
