All the news that's print to fit!

Hello again, my faithful ones! I'm back to give you some info on some things relating to Sequential Treasures and our incredible artistic talent, as well as something a little more personal concerning your humble blogmaster. Let's start with the talent's stuff...

With the release of the latest edition of the Previews catalog from Diamond Comics Dist., there is a solicit for Randy Kintz's upcoming new mini-series from Red 5 Comics called Drone! I've been dropping hints about this for months, but now you can get the full lowdown on the book. The basic breakdown of the plot is as follows:

"In the near future, the United States transforms warfare by testing lethal remote-controlled robotic drones on the front lines. To the world's other powers, the technology is something to be coveted and stolen. To a group of stateside fun-loving hackers, it is the ultimate video game."

Randy provides both the pencils and inks for this four-issue series, with the story being done by Scott Chitwood. Issue #1 (with the cover shown right here) will be at all finer comic shops this November. So, make sure to get them to order you copy. Heck, get them to order you 10 copies (and then you can give them out for Christmas gifts). Or, you could just buy some of Randy's art that I have in stock. Either one will work.

Now, as to the personal bit regarding yours truly, well, I thought you all might be interested is a little debate I've become involved in over at ICv2.com. It involves the point of content issues with what materials Marvel and DC put into their main comic universes and how some of it is becoming increasingly inappropriate. You should start by reading the original piece here, then move over to the comment that caused me to jump into the fray. It has been quite thought-provoking, I think. Both Bennett and Dudley have made updated comments from the responses they've gotten, while I am carefully thinking on what I want to say. I just thought you all might enjoy a spirited debate between those of us within the industry (even though I'm very much on the fringe of it) and see that some of the issues you folks think about, are also thought about by us. [Update - 8/31/09: My latest response to Mr. Dudley has been put up, so please do check it out.]

That's all for now. Hopefully I'll be back soon with more news and some new art updates. Until then, peace out!


Hitting The Shelves: Boneyard #28

Hey, everybody! It's been a while since I had a new comic work to plug for any of our artists, but that end today.

Out in all finer comic shops today, is the much anticipated (and often delayed) final issue of Boneyard! That's right, comic lovers, Boneyard #28 has come out from NBM Publishing today. We'll at last get to see the outcome of where Paris and the crew end up in their battle with the Faerie World. I know Richard has virtually slaved himself over this issue, trying to make it a fitting conclusion for the fans, so make sure to pick up a copy today.

Sadly, this does mark the end for the series, at least for now, as Richard moves on with other projects. But, hopefully, this will not be the last we see of the Boneyard gang. Until then, there are other works from Richard coming up soon, which I'll be sure to plug right here.

That's all for now. I hope to be back soon with more info on upcoming projects from Sequential Treasures roster of talent, as well as an new update of comic art for sale from Richard. Until next time, peace out!

A Whirlwind Tour: Randy Kintz at Wizard World Chicago!

Hey everyone! It's your humble blogmaster once again, here to continue to give you the lowdown on all the excitement we here at Sequential Treasures have planned to bring to your summer of 2009!

Today, I need to tell those of you planning to head off the Wizard World Chicago this weekend, that Sequential Treasures own Randy "Rantz" Kintz will be one of the artists on hand for the show. He'll be found at table 5108 in artists alley. And he's brought along some new and exclusive goodies just for this show, including some full-color prints and sketchbooks made just for WW Chicago. The Catwoman image shown here is just a taste of that, as it is one of the new prints and the centerfold image for the sketchbooks Randy did only for this show. The prints will be running a mere $5.00 a piece, so it is very much within reach of the economically-minded fan. Make sure to stop by his table a say hello. Perhaps you might even be fortunate enough to get a sketch from him, too. But if you can't make the show, don't forget about the new art from Randy which just came in. Many of the pin ups are still available to purchase.

This summer has been quite a busy one for your blogmaster. So much so, that I totally spaced it and forget to mention the arrival of the Fire and Brimstone Vol. 1 TPB, featuring the collected mini-series by our own Richard Moore, which went on sale last week from Antarctic Press. If you missed out on the mini-series in single issue format, make sure to pick it up now. It should be available at all finer comic and bookstore establishments right now!

That's it for now, gang. I hope to be back soon, with even more news and maybe a surprise or two, as I continue to work on things behind-the-scenes. In the meantime, don't forget to cast your vote in our ongoing poll to the left. Until later, peace out!
