So Clint has an issue. I wrote a sincere review of his book The Awesome Pie Collection, giving it five stars since it kept me awake and happy on a gnarly long flight. But Amazon took it down. We were confused, but thankfully a backup of my review was saved and I posted the same review twice. Just assumed it was a bug. Amazon confirmed the review going up and everything.

They took it down again.

APPARENTLY Amazon has a habit of just removing a bunch of positive reviews if you’re an indie author. Ostensibly because you have a connection to the source. But then how else is a small timer supposed to get the word out if not by clueing their friends into their work?

Please help out. If you’ve read The Awesome Pie Collection, drop a review. 1 star, 3 stars, 5 stars, ANY review is welcome. Thank you very much.

San Diego Comic-Con International 2014

I have been absent from Tumblr for the past few days, not even posting one thing, but that’s only because I’ve been to Comic-Con! It’s my first time attending and it wouldn’t have even happened without my lovely animator girlfriend, Fable. This is my first time reviewing an event rather than a piece of media. Keep in mind I’m just highlighting some of the stuff I did and enjoyed. This is the biggest comic convention in the world, after all.

"Hall H is legendary, probably because nobody I know has ever seen the inside of it."

Fff, yep.

Just a roughly sketched out scene idea I had.

Cage and Jack having a talk over some bbq while they patrol Berlin, making sure zombie hoards and Half-Deads don’t sneak back in. 

You ever get into conversations with people like this? They’re so sure your life experiences are somehow…invalidated by some science they’ve got in their pocket. Nevermind that you’ve researched the subject more. And lived it. And that they heard said statistics in some popular magazine.

That those same concepts are often applied to post-apocalypse scenarios is, for me, one of the most genuinely frustrating things about the genre. And reality itself won’t budge everyone in-universe either. These ideas have a habit of sticking around.

What if, instead of tropical fish tanks, you had a live video stream of a section of coral reef? Every time you “fed” the fish, it would be a button you clicked to donate to the reef’s protection. And the more you “feed” the fish, you’re granted access to more reefs. Nightvision cameras are even included so you can see your wild pets at night too without disturbing them with harsh lighting.

Perfect for folks like me who love fish, but do not love cleaning tanks.

"Just Between Us"
(unshaded) frame from another new pagefyi sorry to keep everyone waiting but this time around I’m building up a “buffer” of pages before i start releasing them. Then there wont be long gaps between pages and they will be able to come weekly. It’s more waiting up front, but I think the consistent releases will be worth it. Thats why im dropping frames from each new page though, so at least you have a lil something to look at in the meantime! Thank you everyone for the continued patience and constant support over the years. I’ve said it before but it’s because I really just can’t find the proper words to express how much it means to me that people follow and comment on my stuff. Coming back to BBA has made me happier than I’ve been in YEARS, and I know the (good) addage that at heart you should draw for YOURSELF and no one else, but I’d be a liar if I said returning to this work had nothing to do with the people who loved BBA while I’d forgotten how to.

Yes

Well, while I’m very nervous about posting this, it’s something I seriously need help with. Some of you may already know I had to go to the ER a while back for heart palpitations, and a recently received the bills.

Any and all help is appreciated! If you can’t donate, please just reblog and spread the word!

Carni (Amanda) does some really solid work. She’s my friend and a fellow artist working for Flight Rising. She also dedicates a lot of time helping the Shedu group on Deviantart. Please help her out! Medical bills in the US are pretty crappy to deal with and even a little assistance could help her get to a better place.

I’ve got colored and black and white versions of my comic available, and cards! Got it all done at the Color Images Copy and Print in Burbank in no time. Super helpful people there. I was happy with how fast and quality the job they did was.
Now I just need to fold up the 150 (50 color, 100 bw) comics. Any leftovers will be sold online. They’re each about 4.5 by 6.5 inches in size, eight pages long. The back page has a qr code on it that links to Umbagog and my own’s blogs.
Woop!
