Get Together Date Changed

Due to some construction at the new Comics 2 Games store we've pushed our get together back a week and will now meet on January 31st.

Yes, we're aware that's Super Bowl weekend, but none of us are that into football anyway, at least not to my knowledge. And it's Saturday, not Sunday, so it should all be good, right?

Anyway, if you're in the area be sure to stop by and say hey!

Upcoming

Scott and I are going to head to Florence, KY on January 24th to meet up to discuss the future of Wannabez, our convention plans this year, and probably some other stuff while we're at it.

Just to assure you, when I say we're discussing the future of Wannabez, I don't mean whether or not there will be one. There will definitely be a future of Wannabez, we're just going to flesh some things out and discuss where we want to take it after the first arc and so forth.

We'll also be meeting up with a bunch of people including Chuck and Katie Moore, the Ringtail Cafe crew, the staff of Comics 2 Games (possibly at the new store), and apparently Eric Adams, who is responsible for the design of the Comic Related website! It should be a lot of fun.

If you're in the neighborhood you should swing by Comics 2 Games and say hey. We'll be there at some point, though I'm not sure exactly when. We won't be at a table or anything like that, just in there meeting up with friends and having a good time.

Even though MegaCon's a bust, we are still planning on hitting as many cons as our time and wallets will allow. We'll definitely be at the Comics for Cures Sketch Card event at Comics 2 Games in April, and possibly GemCon the next day. But as far as cons to set up at, we're just not sure yet.

Wannabez #1 is in various stages right now. Scott will be resuming pencils and inks as soon as he finishes another project, and Ross has about a third of the issue give or take to grayscale. I'm just kind of hanging back burying myself in other work right now.

Just keep it locked to this blog for future updates!

MegaCon's a Bust

Well, MegaCon was to be the first convention of 2009 Wannabez would be represented at. Unfortunately that is not going to happen now.

Scott and I had intended to get our registration in early, but I was low on funds at the time so we didn't. Then there was Christmas and, well, you know how that goes. So we were going to get our registration in by next week, but lo and behold, MegaCon's Artist Alley is now sold out.

So, we are forced to remove MegaCon from our attendance list this year. We're not sure what will be the first convention we are set up at now, but we'll keep you posted. We may still make it to Florida for a show, but it's undecided. Details forthcoming if we are.

Issue #2 Script in the Can

If you're a regular reader of this blog you know that not too long ago I made a deal with Scott that if I didn't finish the script for Wannabez #2 by the end of the year that I would pay for his hotel room when we go to MegaCon this year.

Well, I am proud to report that before midnight I did complete the script for issue #2 and sent it to Scott and Cary! I cut it really close, but it did get done and I think it's some good stuff with some exciting scenes and some funny stuff.

So now four issues worth of scripts (if you count #0) are in the can. Yep, issue #3 was written before issue #2 oddly enough, so next up will be issue #4. Wannabez is off to a good start in the new year.

Happy 2009!

From everyone involved with Wannabez, we wish you a happy New Year, and we hope that you find great success in this new year, which has now begun!
