PERHAPANAUTS: INTO HOLLOW EARTH original Graphic Novel

... and the kickstarter campaign is live!

PERHAPANAUTS: INTO HOLLOW EARTH original Graphic Novel




with any luck, we'll hit our funding goal... and then jump right into work on the 54 page graphic novel.

we've been telling stories about our intrepid cryptids for over 10 years now... 
we started with a self-published PERHAPANAUTS  ashcan, then a color newsprint book... 
made the jump to dark horse comics for two mini-series... 
and then moved to image for 13 issues...

and now, we've come full circle, looking to self publish (on a much larger scale) a self-contained, 54 page story in a hard cover format, for readers old and new.

we've learned a lot over the years (about how the industry works), and figured it was time to try and make a book we could get directly to the fans and retailers who are willing to take the chance... and make some money (for a change) along the way.

todd and i came up with the best "if we could only tell one 'haps story!" adventure, and we can't wait to get working... 

this time around, it's all TODD AND CRAIG, start to finish... i'll be penciling/inking/lettering (printed on the original boards) and coloring todd's pretty spectacular tale... and we'll be taking care of the production end as well... 

we've got plenty of cool swag to go along with it at various pledge levels... (and even more bonus stuff to "unlock" at pledge milestones...), so stay tuned... and thanks.

spread the word and we can make this happen... 

-c

you'll notice there are b/w sketch and color sketch pledge levels... and that's gonna be it for commissions for a while. 

after finishing a few outstanding commissions, i'll be dedicating my commission time to the pledges... and my work time is gonna be busy with more adventures so STARTUP (i'll update the blog about that  real soon...!), KYRRA (coming next month to DARK HORSE PRESENTS and digital at artist alley comics and comixology), and... THE PERHAPANAUTS.

so, if you're looking for a sketch in 2015-16, this is your best bet!

THE PERHAPANAUTS KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN LAUNCHES MONDAY MAY 25

THE PERHAPANAUTS KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN LAUNCHES MONDAY MAY 25


If we could tell just ONE PERHAPANAUTS story... THIS IS IT!  

For years, the Perhapanauts have shielded mankind from the strange and the unexplained. Acting covertly, they have faced paranormal anomalies and displaced creatures, often laying their lives on the line for an unsuspecting world.

Their adventures have taken them across the planet, to every continent, to the four corners of the Earth. 

This time, they’re going IN.

THE PERHAPANAUTS: INTO HOLLOW EARTH original hardcover graphic novel.


54 story pages of full color, inner earth, crypotzoological action, adventure and humor (so, technically a 64 page book)... written by Todd (Impulse, Tellos, Sensational Spider-man) Dezago with art and colors by Craig (Impulse, Batman Beyond, Iron Man: Armor Wars) Rousseau.

blogging? seems so 2012...

well, it's been a few weeks since my last post... here. i post quite a bit on social media (facebook and twitter and even occasionally instagram) but don't seem to get around to the blog (or art galleries very often)...

does anyone even write/read blogs any more? maybe i should look into updating to  reflect that trend...

anyway, here's batman on a gargoyle...

pmc 2014

so, there's still a bit of time to donate to the PMC (and the dana farber cancer institute) for my 85 mile ride (cutoff is october 1st)... since don't have "co-workers" in the traditional office sense, i'm asking everybody out there to consider donating... like in years past, i'll try and get some rewards - prints, signed books, sketches, original art, etc - out for donations...(working on a new print for 2014... the rough below!) 


here's the breakdown - 

$25 and i'll send along a signed comic and this year's print (that's a work in progress)
$50 gets you the print and a headsketch
$100 or more and you get the print and a full figure sketch or an original page of published comic art

make a donation, drop me a line and we'l line it up! these sketches may take some time, so please be patient (and if i owe you one already, lemme know!)

every dollar raised is a dollar towards beating cancer, so please give.
