FCBD 2013 Is Almost Finished

January 31, 2013



Been working diligently getting all of my FUBAR obligations out of the way for our Free Comic Book Day 2013 FUBAR offering. It’s shaping up to be a really crazy issue. Instead of going the under-the- radar and under-budget route that we did last year with a half sized 24pg single- story book with distro through our own networks, we worked up to Diamond’s official FCBD with international distribution and a full sized 32 page anthology formatted book. This time around I’ve also done a lot more of the design work on the overall look of the issue with a new FUBAR catalog ad for the back cover, new interior credits page and illustration, inked the first story that was penciled and scaled by Jeff McComsey and designed the title graphic for it as well as working on the final version of the completely recolored Mike Hawthorne cover. Anyway it should be totally ready to roll out this weekend and for the time being I figured I’d leave you with the first page and the layout for the title graphic of The Jack Of Spades.

    This is really cool – love the logo. And I’m excited to see the recolored FCBD cover.

      Yeah I am excited for the new cover colors myself. The last one that got passed around was always a bit of a placeholder. There was a snafu that occurred because of two different dates being emailed around and that confusion led to a mad rush in the last two days of the submission process where Mike had to knock out the pencils and inks and somebody had to just step in and get enough color on the piece to pass for Diamond to get a look at it as an advance. Going to give it the full attention this weekend.
