Catching Up

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it’s been a minute since I’ve dropped something here. I meant to share a couple things these last few months but life kind of gets in the way.

But I thought I’d do a little recap and catch people up with what has been happening.

NWI Comic Con 2023: For the first time in a few years, I was able to attend NWI Comic Con. Unfortunately, I missed the deadline to sign up as an exhibitor but I still wanted to go see the show and support a lot of the local creators. It was a great time but also a bit overwhelming as my first time back around real crowds.

Here’s the newsletter where I talk about it in greater detail:

Comic Talk NL: Another dope thing that happened was finding out on IG (jonparrish1985) that Mega Centurions had been featured on a podcast in the Neatherlands! Comic TalkNL called Mega Centurions a ‘Hidden Gem’ and that was such a cool thing to see! It’s in episode 24. The podcast is in Dutch so I didn’t understand it but I think that’s just dope as hell.

I spoke about it on Twitter and other places but it’s crazy that your stories can go places that you’ve never been.

Reminder: If you haven’t checked out Mega Centurions, there are still a ton of issues on the Scout Comics’ Webstore so go grab a copy. They also have printer plates for sale if you like collecting things like that:

And lastly.

The Secrets & Shadows TPB!

Last but certainly not least, the Secrets & Shadows TPB has finally happened! I’ve wanted to do this and had made slow steps toward collecting the book (the cover says 2015) but I had a lot of mixed feelings as it was a book I’d made for my father that he never got to read. It kind of put an air of finality to it once I finished the series.

However, I had all the pieces and asked Mega Centurions letterer Cristian Docolomansky for help. He was able to help me get all the things I needed to make this finally happen. Once I got the proof and looked it over, I put in a small order for some copies which got here safely a couple weeks ago.

I held off of putting the books up because I wanted to get them shipped off to the team members first but now that most of them have arrived, I put a handful of copies up on my storenvy!

It’s long overdue but the book is here and hopefully, people will enjoy being able to have the full collection in their hands.

That’s all for now. I’m probably forgetting something but it’s been a few months. Still, things have been happening and I hope that there will be more to come.

[Reminder: If you want more up to date information on what I’m working on, I have a newsletter that goes up every Saturday morning at 11am CST. It’s been going on for almost seven years now!
