I am not going to comic con this week, but if you are and you happen to run into Jeremy Barlow you might have an opportunity to see a sneak peak at our western comic, They’ll Bury You Where You Stand!
It’s a short story that will be published in Outlaw Territory Volume 2, which doesn’t yet have a release date.
This story is an exciting project for me for a few reasons:
For starters, It’s the first thing I’ve worked on in my professional career where I’ve been involved with it’s creation from the start. Everything I’ve worked on up to this point has at least had a story and script done before I get to put my stamp on it. TBYWYS! has my stamp on it from the very start.
Second, it’s the first story I’ve done that I’ve colored myself. From the inception of this story color played an important part. In fact I knew how I wanted to color it even before there was a story.
Third, I got to collaborate with my friend Jeremy. He got me into Spaghetti Westerns. I was a fan of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly but I really hadn’t delved into that genre until Jeremy started suggesting titles. And in general, western stories have been an ongoing topic in our friendship. So when the opportunity to do this story came up we booth jumped at it.
Another reason I’m excited about this story is that I think it’s pretty cool. We really wanted to do a western that was different than any western we’ve seen. I think that we were able to make it everything I was hoping it would be.
I’ll have a lot more to say about it when it comes out. When I know the release date I’ll let you know. I’ll be excited to hear what you think of it.
