Today I want to focus on the artists who I’ve had the pleasure and honor of working with. These people, featured in my Artist of The Month spotlights, are not just super talented, but take passion in what they do. What else is there to say other than this picture is only a small sample of how they brought my comic book spinoffs to life?
My novels are always my focus, but it is artists like these that make me enjoy doing the comics as well. Click here to see more from them. Of course, you can always purchase copies of the comics via the specified link on the right of the page.
As always, we are extremely busy with multiple projects, so here is a quick update.
Our fourth graphic novel has officially started production. We are hard at work gathering artists, storyboarding and putting finishing tweaks on some of the dialogue for “Souls 4 Supper: Ghostly Hauntings.” If you are or know anyone who is an artist that may be interested in working on some great ghost stories, please contact us immediately. Slots are filling up quickly, but there are still vacancies. This is great exposure for any dedicated artist, or for an artist who is looking to do something unique and awesome. – firstname.lastname@example.org
I am also working on the next novel in the Flesh and Leftovers series entitled “Devil’s Dessert.” This time, Gordon Lightcap and his team are up against an ancient war between heaven and hell. The angels and demons have chosen Earth as their battleground, so while an apocalypse is upon humanity, the balance of order and chaos teeters on the free will of the people. Will earth give in to the darkness or the light?
In the works, but still waiting for copyright finalities is the first story in the “M.U.T.S. Files.” This will be a free release online that will involve origin stories of the members of our favorite covert op team MUTS. Artist Kelly Swann will be the first to illustrate a few scenes from the story to make it appealing to the eye as well. Again, if you are an artist or know anyone interested in a project like this, let me know.
Finally, in the early stages of negotiation is a crossover event between sCrypt Comics and Earthbound comics. Nothing is set in stone as of yet, but the wheels are in motion, and both sides have expressed interest. More news on this to come.
On a charitable note, sales were decent for the month of November, so I am writing a check this week for a third of the profits from sales for last month. This check will be donated to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief fund.
As always, I am trying to get my stories into hollywood and many other outlets so that someone will pick them up, or at least fund us for larger projects. The world of sCrypt comics as well as my novels has no limits, so let’s all keep our fingers crossed, and if you know a connection of sorts, please send them our way.
You, the fans, are the best that there is, so keep supporting us! Thank you again,
Rick Pipito (sCrypt Comics co-founder)
