Writing the final pages of Panned! #6 has been heart-wrenchingly difficult. Not difficult in a writer’s block/nothing on the page sense, but difficult as in “Man, I don’t really want this to end.” However, new projets are calling, new scripts need written, new stories need told—and so Panned must be ended. For now. If you haven’t picked up the first two issues yet, I sincerely hope you do. The third wil be coming out soon from Broken Icon Comics. There you can also get previews of the first two issues for free to see if it’s anything you’d like to try.
On the horizon, we’ve got new Nightmare Unknown material coming in from both the Crimes Against Humanity arc and the Ella’s Grine arc. I am writing the story for Crimes and have been working closely with Brady Sullivan so his story (Ella’s Grine) fits well with the city I’ve been concocting. Dumo is working his way through the grayscale process on Crimes, and once the script is finalized for Ella’s we’ll be looking for an artist to fit to the words. (We may have a few in mind already.)
Beyond comics, prose has been getting worked on slowly but steadily, as well as building up for audio to go to that prose, so hopefully, the opportunity to get that rolling will present itself in the coming weeks. I’ve found it difficult to get back into the swing of that kind of audio work after doing so many on-the-fly podcasts with Eric—mainly because stricter sound quality comes into play. Might take a while to get back into the swing of things.
Work on the new book has also be progressing. Chapters are being written at a solid pace and the horizon for the first draft’s completion date is starting to materialize into a more definite line—instead of the wavy mirage that it has been up until now.
More to come on all of this soon.
