Ed takes a "Silver Bullet" for Translucent [Jul. 21st, 2007|07:43 pm]

The talented Scott Simmons interviewed me as part of Silver Bullet Comics' ongoing coverage of Small Press Idol. The interview was a blast; Scott really knows his stuff!

And because Dimestore Productions' site doesn't do it justice, here's the full-size cover:

The contest closes tomorrow (Sunday, July 22) at midnight. It's not too late to jump in, scoop up a copy, and thereby cast your vote. I'm a handful of votes from winning the contest, and we're down to the last 30 hours.

And to everyone who has already shown their support (however anonymously), please know that you have my deepest thanks! The contest has been a thrill ride, and YOU have made it possible. Thank you!

Kind regards,

Ed McK moves into No. 1 spot in Small Press Idol! [Jul. 19th, 2007|10:27 am]

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

As of this morning (July 19th), Translucent #0 is officially in FIRST PLACE by only ONE vote! But I can't rest on my laurels, because there are four days of the contest left, and it's anybody's game.

However, because the process is blind, I have no idea WHO has purchased a copy of Translucent and, thus, who to thank! (Just like the real world of comics, I guess.) So, if you've already purchased a copy of Translucent, THANK YOU! But if you haven't, it isn't too late. The contest ends Sunday (July 22), but the sooner the better, the more the merrier! Tell your friends!

Translucent #0 is available for pre-order at Dimestore Productions. My original 12-page story is being printed in a stand-alone comic with assorted other goodies. Every purchaser counts as a voter (buying multiple copies does NOT count as multiple votes), and the project with the most votes wins--among other things--FREE publication of a four-issue limited series based on the winning proposal. It would be so SWEEEEEET!

So, if your discretionary spending budget will allow, please consider pre-ordering a copy of Translucent #0 ($3.50 plus $1.08 S&H) and helping a fellow illustrator grab hold of the brass ring! Click on the above banner or any of the links to go to the order page, click on > Add to Cart < , fill out the requested info (you can use a credit card at PayPal without setting up an account), and look forward to illustrative goodness filling your mailbox sometime in the coming weeks!

Thanks for your consideration, and I hope you are having a fantastic summer!

Kindest regards,

Ed McK

You know, I count Booster Gold #9 as the beginning of my interest in comics. And the new series looks much much better.
Darkseid plays with action figures like Laurence Olivier in clash of the titans? Eh. Whatever. I do that, and they don't make weekly comics about me. Maybe I'll change my mind after I've read the other half of Issue 51, but I feel like the reigns have been handed over to the Junior Varsity Storytellers Club. The copycats.

Any comments on the whole series? Will anyone get mad if I delete this community now, or do you want to talk about Booster and Infinity Inc. and that Black Adam miniseries?

52 degrees for 52 Week 52:

And of course the date is the second of May, 5-2.

Unseasonably, suspiciously cold! What an unfortunate consequence!

WEEK 51 with pencils by Joe Bennett and Jack Jadson!

Newsarama's 5.2 about 52 Week 51 Mike McKone next week, sweet. Origin of the New Multiverse plainly stated by Rip Hunter...that's kind of interesting, the point of divergence is that New Earth page in Infinite Crisis. Which, I guess, is how all the 52 deaths are related. Superchief didn't die on Earth 5. Daniel Carter's still linear on Earth 23. Supernova was Ray Palmer on Earth 17. On Earth 43, Christopher Eccleston is still Doctor Who.

Legion 29 this week was a pretty interesting 52 crossover. It's at least as relevant to the main story as the WWIII fourparter. Booster Gold's in it. It's awesome.

I loved the "world war three" title being media backpedaled upon this week.

Oh, what'd you think?

WEEK 50 with pencils by Justiniano.

JG Jones Cover Blog Week 50.
52 Pickup Week 50. Mr. Wolk correctly points out that Black Adam's rampage makes no sense at all. If there was a reason, it didn't make it to the page. I guess it's the Anakin Skywalker school of going just a tiny bit evil for some thin reason but then mowing down absolutely everything later that afternoon because the story dictates that you must!
Newsarama's 5.2 about 52 Week 50

I went through the issue a few times and found so many moments I like. The noble death of that Cursed Yeti man.. there almost HAS to be some post-mortem backstage deal going on. 52 dead people coming back to life. Just you wait. Booster, Rip, & Morrow pull back the curtain to reveal Ralph, Sue, Cursed Yeti Man, Super Chief. The Question. 48 others.

I liked the first two WWIII!!! issues well enough, but didn't like the Ostrander ones. I know he wrote Martian Manhunter for years, & true to form, these gave me the same headache I used to get trying to read his J'onn stuff. Because it always looked ALMOST good, and the 1,000,000 issue was SO Good, I'd always try to read them.

Some WWIII stuff I didn't even read, that Manhunter the lawyer scene got half a glance at best. The Father Time & S.H.A.D.E. parts (while...superfluous) were far and away my favorites.

I am really going to miss 52. Countdown will be no substitute at all.

WEEK 48 with pencils by Derick Robertson.

52 Pickup Week 48. I hadn't seen that 'Greg Rucka bitches about lettering mistakes' post before, that's pretty hilarious.
Newsarama's 5.2 about 52 Week 48

Grant Morrison Fanboy Radio Audio Interview (1 hour/13mb). "I come up with the whole thing the night they give me the assignment." Wow. That is SO cool.

This wasn't nearly as satisfying for me as the Steel/Luthor conclusion issue, or the Ralph/Fate conclusion issue, if it's even fair to compare them. Leaving everyone at death's door in a blazing building isn't exactly my idea of a satisfying conclusion. But I've always felt like the Rucka parts in 52 were unnecesarily padded out, so maybe he's getting two issues to wind his whole Montoya thing up...the scene where she shows up at Checkmate's door, I guess, that'll be next issue.

Four more. They've all been on time. Unbelievable.
