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!
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!
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!
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!
Yesterday was a pretty huge day for Gamer Girl & Vixen, my own self-published comic. We’re gearing up for a Kickstarter in May, and the website AfterEllen.com decided to check out our comic and write up an article to help show us off! They are my heroes right now.
You can check out the article for yourself by Clicking Here. It’s a great little write-up and I am over the moon at the acknowledgement. So sorry in advance for gushing.
But hopefully After Ellen is just the beginning. We’re looking for anybody out there willing to help us spread the word about Gamer Girl & Vixen and gain some more followers ahead of the Kickstarter. A few of you henchies have already agreed to spread the word — and I couldn’t be more grateful. Seriously, that you readers would be willing to help me out like this is more awesome than I ever expected blogging to be.
Anybody who’s willing to help out, let me know! It’s as simple as visiting that After Ellen article and sharing it on your own social media. Or if you’ve got a blog or website, I can send you some preview pages of our comic to show off. You can check out the pages for yourself here. And you can also send people to our website www.gamergirlandvixen.com.
You Henchies have been a wonderful help so far, and I can’t thank you enough. We’re only one short month away from making this comic a reality, and I couldn’t be more pumped!
It has been awhile since I posted Gamer Girl & Vixen news, so prepare for a mother load! We are proud to present to you a preview of Gamer Girl & Vixen #1. Here are the first 6 pages of our comic. These will be part of the finished product, and introduce both of our main characters.
The first issue is almost complete, and will hopefully be done by the end of the month. From there, we’re planning to finally launch our Kickstarter campaign in May to produce a second issue, and then to print and ship both issues to our backers. We’re nearing the final stretch to get our comic off the ground and into your hands!
But first we need your help! I know some of you readers are fellow bloggers, with your own comic book blogs. If anyone is willing to host these preview pages on their own blog to help spread the word of Gamer Girl & Vixen, please let me know. You can leave a comment at the bottom of this page or shoot me an email at GamerGirlandVixen@gmail.com. The only way my comic can succeed is if we get the word out, so I would greatly appreciate any help with this.
If you’d like to follow along more closely with the production, you can visit our new website www.gamergirlandvixen.com!
Now without further ado, join me after the jump for the rest of the preview! And let me know what you think in the comments! Thank you!
