With all the pushing over the last month or so for Christian Sager and I’s graphic novel, THE CABINET, another project I’m working on kind of fell to side as far as news goes. Regulars here have probably seen talk and a preview here and there of the project I’m working on with Harvey and Ignatz awards nominated writer, Chris Reilly, (who also is fresh off of writing for the Gumby comic) called the Hobo Kings: Bum Sub.
Chris was in San Diego for comic con and had an 8 page mini of Hobo Kings on hand and ran out first day. We then posted the preview on THE HOBO KINGS SITE (click on the link to go straight there and delight yourself!)
We also have some great news, the Hobo Kings has found a home at Alterna Comics! I’ve had a long relationship with the publisher and am excited to bring a new project to the imprint. you can check out Alterna if you haven’t yet HERE . I’m also contributing 5 cards to the Alterna Originals card sketch card set that will be available soon.
Alterna is also in the last 50 or so hours of their “Reverse Fundraiser”. Clearing some books out and covering some old publishing and distribution costs. You can get a lot of awesome stuff, from PDF collections, hard copy collections, signed books with sketches, or even original art from Peter Simeti, Sean Von Gorman, Michael S. Bracco, Jeff McComsey, Rafer Roberts, Jeremy Massie, or Bret M. Herholz or myself. All of this for a low cost and you’re helping keep a creator owned publisher punching it’s way to the top. There isn’t long left though, so hurry up and help them hit thier goal! ALTERNA COMICS REVERSE FUNDRAISER
This is exciting for us and we are proud to bring the Hobos to Alterna Comics. Keep an eye out for more updates on this soon and, by all means, follow the Hobo Kings site as well, I plan to start posting more sketches and so on there very soon.
