IndieGoGo just canceled Agents of H.A.G, my first comic book in 30 years, AFTER the campaign successfully ended with 150% of goal. I already ordered books from the printer. Now all the money, all the orders, gone. No appeal, just gone.
I’m thinking about doing comics again, old-skool, partly as a way to spend less time staring at screens. I’m not sure I still have the patience for it, though. Here’s a test I did this morning. Drawing on graph paper means I don’t have to use a ruler to make panels or lettering lines. It’s very easy to filter out the grid lines in GIMP, but the originals look worse.
A friend of mine told me she’s dating a guy who works in trains, and among other things can actually drive a train. Naturally I wanted to show her the Casey Jones comic I made for Grateful Dead Comix in 1991, but I couldn’t find it anywhere online. I couldn’t even find it on my own hard drives – apparently I’d never even scanned it. Probably because everyone who worked on Grateful Dead Comix did it as work-for-hire. Well I don’t play that no more, so here for your (and my friend’s) edification and enjoyment are all 8 pages of Casey Jones. The Dead will have to censor this themselves, since I’m not doing it for them.
