Hey, so  this past couple weeks I have been busy finishing up work for hire projects; my most recent being the colors for the Army of Darkness VS. REanimator one shot(Dynamite), and getting a digital comix magazine under way.     

The Magazine will feature the stories and artwork of myself and :iconlevistokes:  stories will range from slice of life to Sci-fi fantasy and consist of serials to oneshots.  

Featured in the first issue  and  Premiering will be  Bad Bunny, and  World of Gazillion Monsters!!!  Along with the continuation of Vegas street and The Cossin Bros. (from One Shot 2 Killz) !!!

I'm also gonna be at the San Diego Comic fest  sdcomicfest.org  although I will not have a table my brother Matt Cossin will be seated and selling our goods and doing sketches, so stop by for that!

The observant of you will have noticed that I have cut back on posting to deviantart My Original story and Characters as of late.

I have mostly been keeping to fanart stylings or generic offerings and I will continue to do so and be more active with journal updates here.

The nature of Deviantart is to influence and inspire and so many of you do just that for me with every posting, no matter the level or years of those I've followed or viewed.

But then the community also has those people who chip away at bits and pieces or sometimes , even consuming the whole of one's Original offerings.

Borrowing or steeling concepts to fill their own creative void.  

I know that this has become a common practice on the web and it is hard to guard against.

That is why I will be posting all future Original characters , concepts, and story offerings of mine up at my KingMakersComix.com   site from now on.
It will allow me to keep a more accurate accounting of those bad apples and continue to enjoy the Deviantart community for a long time.

Yeah, always wanted to say that to a room full of people and have the AC/DC song " Thunderstruck" start up as I run around in my Luchador mask and my custom made , Elvis jumpsuit all while girls dressed as 80's rock groupies , start a mosh pit.  ^~^   - "Oh Yeah!"
Amazingly enough I don't drink, except for caffeinated beverages, which is probably the only reason that I still look younger than the majority of my graduating Highschool class, either that or I am long over due for puberty.

What Time is it?!!!!!!!

It is time to get busy!  I'm working on some comic book pitches, One with :iconstupidartpunk: as a mini series and solo on another as a 40 page one shot with characters like , "Bad Bunny" that I  promise to be the most brutal urban anthro  comic book you ever saw!  

Let's just hope someone will publish it. (because, come the end of April , I'm gonna have a whole lotta' pages laying around :/ )

Because  I have sworn off self publishing , unless I go the digital copies for sale route.  
I'm gonna test out the digital thing with  my printed book, "One Shot 2 Killz"  in March and the 60 page follow up, early April .
So ,we'll see how that goes.  


More photo collabs in the works soon too!!!  
:iconcapturedpoetry: has agreed to take more photos for that purpose ; and is headed to my hometown of, Detroit as I write.

See you soon in a comical books store near you!

Well books are gonna be available for the New Year it really is alot harder than you would think(heh heh) finding a printer availalbe right before Christmas go figure( well without making the price jump)!!

But it is giving us alot of time to add more touches to the book 4 more pages! ( now 32 page mini) and get the raffle prize sorted out!

So Merry Christmas and a Happy New year too!

Hey , apologies go out to anyone waiting(?) to read the second half of skate or die and Mikey's Robot vs Ninja girl on kingmakers.
Been really swamped with work this week and should be caught up tonight!

I am however going to need 2 days away from the desk as my back is killing me ( an obvious side affect of being runover by a drunk, pot head , Dodge Ram diesel driver last year).

(One reason for my new speed comics approach to compensate for my lack of time at the board.)

Should start posting again like gang busters this Friday!  And to make up for it I will post 2 more pages of the wrestling action and 2 more pages on saturday of "skate or die"!

So hope you can forgive me this break in updates.

While I got your attention might as well let you know  I have been cooking up an 80 page book (I have been working on off the grid ),that will be available come Comic Con.  Maybe more books too! we'll see, what time permits.

I figure it's a safe bet if you are reading this you love comics and comic creating folks.
So unlike previous years I have decided to have a couple of mini books ready for San Diego comic Con and start planning a head for it now.  

The bee in my bonnet though is that artist alley is booked to overflow (waiting list) and I really want to get my books into the public hands this year.  You know do a little meet and greet take (your money give you funny book).

But despite that hiccup, I think I've come up with a fun little something, that is gonna make this a possibility.   

Gonna keep you posted as we get closer, with the details (books to be available for summer, special give aways ,and how I plan to get those books into your hands).

Let's make comics!  Not a series of just slick art but lets try to actually have something to convey!  Because if anything the best comics are the ones that you carry with you even when you leave them at home.

Word on the street is there is a new deviantart group called "Kingmakers"; that is shooting to make their draw the quickest in the west.  2 hrs for a finished comic page from concept to scan and colored.  1 hr , for title pages and illustrations.

Each member is shooting to contribute 3 pages a week minimium of page comics.
Some short some serialized , short or ongoing comics and one pagers. (And remember If you find one you like be sure to be vocal about!)

Once a month a theme will be picked from one of the founders for the group to turn into a 2 page story.
These themes will be general enough to allow for a wide range of interpretations.

It's all about being productive!  

So sit down , set the timer, and Draw!
