With this week’s comic we mark the end of what I consider to be¬†the second “issue” of Zombie Ranch. Also, even though this site went live Sept. 25th, 2009, this coming Saturday will mark¬†the first anniversary¬†since we started posting the story, and then in about a month from now we should reach story comic #50. That’s a lot of different milestones to choose between, but right now I think we’ll go with the anniversary and take a small pause for breath next week before continuing with the tale. Long Beach Comic Con is fast approaching and our panel presentation has gotten the final greenlight, plus Dawn needs to get some new artwork together in time to hopefully make a nice big Zombie Ranch banner for our table.
So next Wednesday we might actually have a couple of different drawings for you folks to look at and vote on in terms of a banner and/or potential cover for a print of Zombie Ranch #2. Honestly, there’s no way #2 would be together in time for Long Beach, but then again I still want to see how we do with #1 there since it’ll actually be the first time we’ll have a stack of full comics available for people to buy at a convention, instead of just a mini-comic or postcard flyers.
Oh, and speaking of Zombie Ranch #1, a new review has been posted over at Geek Girls Network, courtesy of Amy, the Geek With Curves. You can check out the review here, and also check out Amy’s own blog while you’re at it. She’s good peoples, and I’m not just saying that because she implies we have talent.
I believe I already mentioned that our panel will be Dawn and myself discussing being newbie¬†independent creators taking our idea from concept to webcomic/comic book on a limited budget, with an eye towards helping others do the same. I still have to put this whole presentation together, so I’m wondering what you all might¬†be hoping to find out¬†if you were to attend such a panel, and what questions you might ask? You can speak your piece in the comments or email me directly. This coming week is the calm before the storm, so I’m hoping to make the most of it.
