Words of Encouragement

Been a whirlwind Summer and I have been super busy with the release of Age Of Insects Book three, San Diego Comic Con 2008 and most currently trying to push out the pages for Age Of Insects Book four. In spite of this hectic schedule I have managed to complete my script for Superback Issue one, I have even done thumbnail layouts for 20 pages of what will likely be a 24 or 28 page book... depending on how long I "draw out" the fight scene. (That was a bad pun, I apologize.)Above is a very rough thumbnail of Superback in action. It was originally drawn at 2.75"inches x4.25"inches! Pretty small!!

Also... I found a Blog called the Spirit of Jake Plummer which had a post that dated back to Last November and it was all about a comic book super hero/Football dream team where they placed well known Super Heroes into the different Football team positions based on the four color icon's fictional attributes... it was quite fun and the ensuing conversation and enthusiasm for the football/comic book idea was really quite encouraging to me as a creator and football/ superhero fan. here is the post.

So my quest to self publish my own Super hero Football Player soldiers on. Check back for more news on the progress of this soon to be grid iron comic book football phenomenon!!!

Superback colors!! or a Long time since my last post!!!!

Here is some stuff I have been working on in pursuit of achieving a more final look for Superback! any one whose reading I welcome comments as I am creatively open, I want to stir up a sense of U.S. iconography with this character the way Captain America does in the marvel books but I want to avoid particularly the stars and bars if I can.

I re-wrote the script to Superback Issue 1, and my computer is acting all jenky (unrelated). Also, there is a contest to be a character in the Age of Insects book that everyone needs to compete in on Age of ( I am real busy but I am happily working on the various projects I am involved in. For those of you who don't know, last June I premiered a website with my two partners, Dave and Fouad, called Da ( Check it out if you haven't yet. We are working up some fun cartoons based on these and other characters--so watch out world!
