okay–I’ve been quiet of late. but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. I’ve got a number of things going on that I’m excited about! Like a complete overhaul of my website; lookoutmonsters.com!
Welcome to the all new lookoutmonsters.com!
This is the beginning of something new for me. With this post, lookoutmonsters.com becomes a webcomic site, featuring the serialization of my comics; some old, some new. Old or new, lookoutmonsters.com will no longer be a staid, static site, featuring “information” about books you can buy; but an active and dynamic site-featuring loads of stuff to read or look at, for free–and then, just to help feed the cats, maybe a few things you can buy as well!
I’ll be starting off with weekly serialization of Look Out!Monsters –my 2007 xeric winning art-comic extravaganza– on Mondays beginning in October! -and when LoM runs its course, I’ll follow up with Fandancer, my collage comic from 2010-which very few people have actually seen! Both books will be made available for digital download as well! (In fact–the pdf of LoM is available now! Both at my site and at Drivethrucomics.com. Fandancer will be available buy the end of the week!)
I’ll also be re-formatting my 1990’s b & w indie “superhero”, Dr. Speck, the guy who combines quantum physics, Tibetan Buddhism and dated vacuum cleaner technology in one colorful rubber suit–and, beginning soon after LoM starts in October, running the entire series at lookoutmonsters.com on Wednesdays, ! While the entire Speck story never made it into print(the run ended with the fourth issue), I did did indeed carry the series forward in a series of “ash-cans” as we used to call them–and eventually saw the story through to its conclusion in a big stack of pages meant for its initial run on the web, back at the end of the 20th century. I’m excited to introduce Dr.Speck to a new audience, it’s remained a consistent seller even after all these years, so I’m optimistic it will continue to strike a chord today.
Last but not least, I’ve got two new projects I am really excited about bringing to lookoutmonsters.com. Both of these projects will be serialized there–beginning very soon–and I’ll tell you more about them as I get closer to actually posting ’em! (the image atop this post–and the image below, give you a hint) They’re very different from one another, but I’m so excited about each of them that I can’t bear not to work on both–so, sooner rather than later, I’ll be introducing those two new comics over at lookoutmonsters!
Check back soon–there’s lots happening–and you don’t want to miss it!
all the best,
Oh! And of course–pood no.4 hits the shops in late September–Look for it!
hah! –and then follow PBHfOS on the new lookoutmonsters.com! hah! So there!
