Hit Me With Your Best Shots, Pt. 2

Jeff Marsick of Newsarama starts his review of Robot 13: Colossus! Issue 2 like this: "Fantastic. Phenomenal. Best book I’ve read all year."

All I can say is this: when we put together the first issue, Daniel and I tried to make the best book we could, and when we worked on issue 2 we tried to be that much better. We are hard at work to make issue 3 the best of the lot, and I really, really think we are going to do that.

Hopefully, you all will agree.

Time will tell.

Core Values

The Big Apple Con is over & I am back into the swing of "real life" again. While I thought the flow of people through Artist Alley was a little on the slow side compared to many shows Daniel & I have done, the fans themselves were as good as we have come to expect from NYC. Each and every person who worked their way through to our table & said hello was appreciated, and we met some great people. Because things were pretty slow, we had time to talk a little bit more to other artists & we made a few new friends (you know who you are). I was also able to get some of the business stuff done for Blacklist that we have been trying to nail down for a while, so hopefully you will be hearing alot of really cool things from us shortly...

On The Cover

One thing people have asked me about issue 2 is, "Why is Robot 13 fighting a Dinosaur on the cover of issue 2?"
Well- he is and he isn't...
The image, in fact, is our idea of a Phoenix, but it was also based in part on artist concepts of the archaeopteryx. One thing that Daniel & I have always looked to do with our comics is bring in some basis in reality or History in everything we do. When I write scripts, I am always searching for visual reference material~ not to say, "do it exactly like this," but to give Daniel something real and concrete to springboard off of.
In doing research for issue 2, I noticed how much the archaeopteryx depicted in textbooks looked like the Phoenix art from around the world. When I showed those shots to Daniel, he saw what I did~ there was something amazing in the mix of lizard and wild, feathery bird. All it would take was Daniel's art style and some imaginative coloring to turn those turkey sized freaks of Evolution into a Phoenix the size of a 6 seat jet airplane...
