Chitsu From Domes

Adriano has delivered another great pin-up for the Domes project we are working on. Meet Chitsu, one of the 2 main characters in this future Graphic Novel. She is tiny, cute, filled with attitude and loaded down with throwing knives that she could place in your eye from 60 feet off while upside down and drunk.

Needs of the Few does still move forward

We are still moving forward on NEEDS OF THE FEW. It is taking a long time but I guarantee that it will be well worth the wait. You can see Mario's other work in Dark Horse's Solomon Kane, Digital Webbing's Bloodrayne and IDW's Lone Ranger & Tonto. Stick with us on his one because when it is finished you will not believe your eyes.

HAPPY VALLEY morphs from daily webcomic to comic book format!

I have talked about HAPPY VALLEY before. You may have heard me in the store, or seen my rantings on myspace, maybe even absorbed my utter disgust in the daily newspaper! Well, just as you thought your children were safe and animals had their place….Here comes HAPPY VALLEY in comic format! A good friend of mine started the idea on a 24 Hour Comic Day. The same 24 Hour Comic Day that started Empire’s Comics Vault wishing they could be involved. From there we have seen even more grueling episode of HAPPY VALLEY exercised through ritual punishment of 24 hours of Hell!

But creator JESSE JONES could not be stopped, would not be stopped. In fact he had been possessed by a demon that forced him to write and draw a webcomic daily through 2008. With those done he has turned to a new medium of punishment. Not for us but for himself!

Check out the cover for HAPPY VALLEY #1!!!! This will be available at Wondercon and at Empire’s Comics Vault in Sacramento, California. For a peek at what you have in store please visit the sites below.
