Well… that took longer than I was planning. It’s been a bit of a crazy year and while it may not look like much is happening with Murder Book, please be assured that there is a ton of stuff happening behind the scenes.
First up, a new story illustrated by Vic Malhotra. Vic had illustrated a story that I’d lettered for someone else, and I really dug his style. I can’t remember how now, but somehow we got to talking about doing a Murder Book story together. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more stories from him on the site in the near future.
Secondly, the first print run of Murder Book Vol. 1 sold out in May, and I’m going back to press on that AND will be doing a run of Murder Book Vol. 2. The second volume will contain Trickle and a new comic by Michael Walsh called Settling Up. I’m in the process of lettering Settling Up now, and will likely launch it on this site sometime in the next few weeks.
I’ve redesigned the cover of the first book for the second printing and have now put that and Vol. 2 up in the store. Both will start shipping out on June 15th, but please don’t let that stop you from pre-ordering them now. I’ve added bundle deals as well! Buy more and save yourself some bucks!
Lastly, I’m going to be at the Calgary Comics & Entertainment Expo on June 17-19 with the Acts of Violence crew. In addition to being there with all the Acts of Violence writers (Chad Boudreau, Dino Caruso, Kevin Leeson and Todd Ireland), I’ll also be joined by “Catching Up” and “Skimming the Till” artist Simon Roy and “Trickle” artist Vic Malhotra, who will be signing copies of Murder Book Vol 1 and 2. We’ll all be at booth 1504.
