January 2016 Update

Janine Van Moosel Children's books, Comics, Conventions, illustrations, interviews, News, reviews

It has been a busy winter, with no signs of slowing for spring 2016!

Our Kickstarter for Untitled sadly failed, but we have applied for funding, and are relaunching at the end of February splitting the graphic novel into 3 parts making producing it more viable and achievable! The Rot now has it’s own Facebook page which is cool, We are hoping to get it printed in an anthology soon, or maybe just alongside Untitled.

City of Lost Souls issue 4 is a little behind Schedule but I can confirm James has completed the scripting for the full story, it will be 6 issues now instead of 8, and we are releasing our first collected volume! I have been working like a mad thing editing and formatting, and adding some grey tone dimension to the artwork as well as reformatting the lettering so that the quality is uniform throughout!

The Kickstarter for that is actually live now, and we zipped past our halfway mark in the first 24 hours! Check it out, totally worth backing if you enjoy the comics, this will be even shinier and look great on your shelf. We also have a secret guest artist in to do the cover SHHHHH! So excited as he is one of my favorites! (Sneaky Gender Leak)

You can find that Kickstarter HERE:

The work for Ed Wickes latest book (collected adventures of Superbaby, title as yet unconfirmed)  is coming along and I will be doing a little competition at the East Kilbride mini ComicCon on February the 6th with the children attending, I will be choosing the best rendition of Superbaby on the day to go in the book! The winner will also get a copy of Wicked Tales 4 where Superbaby makes his first appearance, and from which I will be doing a reading on the day! I love reading stories to kids, it is one of my favorite things!

I have also reviewed a few comics over at The BGCP, though time for reviews has been short with work load as it is.
