Thanksgiving is coming up. I can’t wait to eat too much food.
Thanks to everyone who follows Bobby’s adventures. I know our updates can be sporadic, so I like to make sure I update the blog once in a while.
I edited the ending of Issue One, so we only have two pages left! It’s funny how much tighter I could make the ending after a year of added experience. Also, I’ve been gearing up for GraniteCon in September 2014. I’m committed to going, and I’ve been gathering up quotes for everything we need for a great showing. I can’t wait to see you there
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
Greyfriars is one year old today. I want to briefly thank our friends, family, and everyone for their support and readership. Junelle and I are so proud of what we’ve built here over the last year, and we promise that there is more to come.
We can’t wait to show you what year two of Greyfriars will bring!
Sorry for the delay in updates. Such are the ways of labors of love. This is a big post, and our front page blog thingy can be weird, so click the title of the post if this gets cut off :/
I attended Granitecon in Manchester, NH this weekend. I was just visiting though. No Greyfriars table or merch or anything like that. I just went to have fun and get a sense of what cons are like. I’m interested in getting a table next year though.
But plenty of other cool people were there!
The Underburbs is a cool looking indie comic about a vampire that tries to take over the human world on Halloween night while a witch tries to stop her. Love the art. It’s totally my style. I regret not picking up a copy at the show, but I made a mental note of catching up on this soon.
I met Art Baltazar, and he drew me this sweet Nightwing sketch, colored with crayons. I’m a big fan of his work on Tiny Titans, and I got the first issue of his new book, Aw Yeah Comics.
The New England Horror Writers were also in attendance. I didn’t buy any of their books either, but I should have! They have some creepy stuff and seem like a nice bunch of people.
I also met Ron Marz, and he signed a copy of Ravine vol 1. He is a super nice guy even though I’m incredibly awkward.
Anyway, it was a great trip, I saw some fantastic cosplay, spent too much money, and just maybe…you’ll catch us there next year!
Uh oh, sounds like someone doesn’t trust Bobby’s capabilities as a ghost buster!
It took eighteen pages, but we’ve introduced our three heroes.
Bobby – The Skye terrier who has inherited the guardianship of the haunted Greyfriars Graveyard.
Duff – The wisecracking crow with uncertain allegiance.
Deidre – A powerful Cu Sith. She has much respect for Old Jock, but does she trust Bobby to pick up where his master left off?
Stay tuned for next week’s adventure as we near the conclusion of Issue 1 of Greyfriars.
What creature could possibly put fear into the heart of a cait sith?
Find out next week!
And if you can’t wait that long, I recommend you check out Mike Kunkel’s Herobear and the Kid. This was one of my favorite comics in high school, and after a long hiatus (about a decade), Boom Studios brought it back. Look for it in your local comic shop or whatever digital comic storefront you might use.
I wish I had a picture of the Herobear doll my wife made me when we started dating in high school. Herobear was seriously a big deal for me.
Some friend Duff is, huh?
Looks like our boys are between a rock and a furry place. What deus ex machina could possibly get them out of it?
And let me point you to one of the many exciting Kickstarter projects out there, Laika Believes. Laika is a true story about the first dog in space. The story ends tragically…or did it?
I prefer to believe in a story where Laika came back to earth with lasers to battle the evil Stalinist Russians and save the world. If you think that sounds awesome and are a fan of “Metroidvania” games, check it out.
Junelle says I look disinterested if I’m not blogging. I’m not disinterested — I’m just not interesting!
Yadda-yadda, work is exhausting, blah-blah bouncing between writing projects. I ain’t got time to blog, y’all.
But I did have time to read Matt Tarpley’s webcomic Mary Death. It’s like Calvin and Hobbes if Bill Watterson listened to too much Siouxie and the Banshees.
Now that we have all the boring exposition out of the way, we can get to the action. I’m thrilled we made it this far and we finally get to see these pages.
I hope everyone enjoys the regular updates. There are at least a few more pages banked away to keep this going. Sorry it took a while. Thanks for coming back, and if you’re new here, welcome.
I also want to take a moment to congratulate Abby Howard on her Kickstarter success for “The Last Halloween.” I can’t wait to read it.
It’s not a new comic page, but we have a new site design thanks to Junelle We hope you enjoy it.
The old blog posts were lost in the process, but no big deal. Also the issues archive is currently missing some pages. If you read the comic from the home page, you’ll still be able to read and navigate through the full story.
If you notice any other bugs or have any suggestions, please let us know.
There’s more coming soon. Stay tuned!
