If you aren’t in Northern California, you may not have seen this story on your news. A young boy by the name of Joey Sinco has been battling brain cancer, the University Of The Pacific and the Make-A-Wish foundation took some time to help Joey feel like the hero he is. You can watch the video here among the things done during the halftime of the game at UOP was a presentation of a custom cover of Joey and Captain America by local creators, and genuinely great guys Sean Miller and Travis Compton from Anchor Comics, who you may remember from one of our early episodes of the podcast where we talked to them a bit about making comics and more. That episode was recorded at my LCS The Launchpad. Which brings to the second thing I wanted to link to.
Mike from The Launchpad has a Kickstarter in progress called Night Of The Bloody Hooks, which is a set of horror themed adventure hooks for table-top RPG’s, they don’t need too much more to go, but if you are a gamer, go give it a look and if you can’t donate, please share. Thanks so much!
There is a new Kickstarter going on for Chewler a new book from friends of The Gravy Age David M. Brown (author of the creepy Obscura, that I loved) from Fifth Dimension Comics, with art by the brain-melting Shannon Gretzon from Exspastic Comics (that I interviewed here) and letterer Sean Fagan (who… isn’t Donald Fagan from Steely Dan? I didn’t think out this parenthetical ahead of time). What’s not to love about this book? Nazi’s? The internet loves those! I dare you to get into an argument online and see how long it takes for them to get mentioned. Aliens? Look, if you don’t know they run everything. Clones? Everybody wants a clone, but one that’s just dumb enough to go to work for you, because face it, it might rain out there and you don’t want to put on pants, besides, Rockford Files is on. Go check it out though folks, let’s make this a thing.* You can go check out the Kickstarter for Chewlerhere. And stay tuned for a review of Chewler, coming soon!
*Not a thing like we made Limp Bizkit, I was there, you were there, we all just stood by and let it happen. Jesus people…
It’s all the way live kids. Go check it out, The Horror Of Loon Lake, it just went up today, and we can totally make this happen folks. Go check out the interview we did with Carl here and don’t forget that Smell A Rat is included in this project, which has a ton of cool stuff from a ton of cool people, including Stan Chou. Oh and remember in my Smell A Ratreview I said I should write some sort of John Carpenter style opening credits music for it? Guess what makes an appearance in the video.. Although, in my head I keep thinking “Damn I didn’t master it!” Anyway, go check it out! It’s an awesome horror anthology, with a bunch of great artists involved. Toodles!
