Update on our Progress
about 5 years ago – Thu, Mar 21, 2019 at 02:46:21 AM

First, thank you very much for your continued support - pages continue to come flying in and I wanted to show off two works in progress for the Villains origin book.  

Lets start with the pencils for the Origin of the Puzzler by Dark Horse/Zenescope penciler Ace Continuado -- I think this is great


Here is the rough for the Origin of the Cougar by Jomar Bulda of Sketchpad Studios --

Kickstarter - Heroes of the Golden Age #3
about 5 years ago – Thu, Mar 21, 2019 at 01:01:46 AM

It's no secret that we are good friends with the guys at Temporal Comics; heck they even did a Special for us here at Thrilling Nostalgic Comics

Well they are back with a new Kickstarter for their third issue of Heroes of the Golden Age; a reference guide to public domain heroes. They have even signed Robert Greenberger to write this issue - you may remember Robert as the research/editor of DC Comics' Who's Who series.

We can't recommend this series enough and with each successful campaign means we will get MORE issues! So please consider pledging.

Best,

TNC

Update - Good News and Bad News
about 5 years ago – Wed, Mar 13, 2019 at 10:47:27 PM

More pages to show off -- the good news is that pages have been pouring in by the batchful and the art teams are busy as all get out -- Ron and Barry are doing amazing pencils and Joe and Mick are inking beautifully.  The one page origins of heroes and villains are likewise coming in every day -- let me show off a page from Barry below.  Also, we have added CHRIS SOTOMAYOR as colorist on the GRAPHIC NOVEL and Glenn Whitmore on the Villains' origins book so we have some AMAZINGLY-talented colorists onboard.

Let me show off this great page by Barry:

The news I wish I didn't have to say is that I think we will be delayed 2-4 months in getting the book out --  we are just juggling quite a few books on this kickstarter so the delay is NOT the artists - they are on time and doing great -- we are just adding various tidbits and brushing up colors and adding dialogue so I hope you will all understand -- we are absolutely not a kickstarter that takes money and doesn't produce -- we are just running a bit behind -- to make it up to everyone, I will be providing a digital 5 page bonus story to all backers --
 

I will start posting some more artwork as well so folks can see more progress - I want to show off this Ramona Fradon/Mick Gray page
 

Again, we are so sorry for the delay but please know that it is because we simply want the book to be great and are taking our time to get it there -- the artwork is amazing and I know you will all be thrilled --
