I’m almost done with my comic for my anthology, Beyond (the queer sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology). I’ve been posting work-in-progress highlights from said comic over on my Patreon- for $2 a month you can go see the full version of this page (plus so much more!) right here » patreon.com/sfemonster
The inks from this comic are being done by the incredible Brittney Sabo. She makes my pencils look so nice.
A quick update on all things Beyond Anthology. There have been some recent changes to our editorial staff: Rachel has made the decision to move on to other work and is no longer involved in the anthology- we thank her for her time with the project, and wish her all the best in her current and future endeavours.
However! This change has lead to a very exciting development. I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I am now working with the assistance of one of Beyond’s stellar contributors, Taneka Stotts, in the final stages of the anthology. Taneka is a wonderful, passionate professional, 100% committed to Beyond, and it has been incredible to work with her and see the anthology truly (and rapidly) start to come together.
At this point we are in the final stage of collecting pages and completed comics. We’ve secured a cover artist (official announcement coming soon!) and things are really starting to come together. There will be more official Beyond news shortly, so take care and stay tuned!
SPX- the Small Press Expo- is this weekend! Unfortunately I had to bow out of attending this year, and while the Beyond anthology won’t be in attendance at the show, a lot of its incredibly talented contributors will be!
Be sure to check out:
Have a great SPX, everyone!
The first page of my comic- The Dragon Slayer’s Son- that will be part of my queer sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology, Beyond. My comic is about a pair of dragon slayers, borrowing heavily from the look and feel of the early Canadian fur trade and the French Canadian voyageurs. Brenn (seen here) is a young transguy on the road to becoming a man. (you can see more character designs etc. for my comic here.)
Doing base colors, especially in B&W, is really very tedious, long-hours work — but the fact that my spouse does such elegant lineart makes it all bearable. From our upcoming story in the Beyond Anthology.
Why, yes, this will be a very visibly queer story!
With action, ‘cause we can’t help ourselves.
