Vanguard Issue 3

Well, sadly I've been neglecting this wee blog for some time it seems. Have been caught up in a whole heap of snowballing Real Life Shit this last year or so, which hasn't left much time for blogging, or writing of any description really. Hopefully I will be able to get back on track soon.

In the last few months I've had a few stories turn up here and there, like "Five Minutes to Midnight" in the most recent issue of Something Wicked, "Incarnation Shift" in the most recent Futurequake, and  a second airing of "Claus Encounters of the Santa Kind" which appeared in Strip magazine's Christmas Special at the end of last year - my widest exposure yet, an actual newsstand title! That came about as a result of submitting the strip to the Strip Showcase Challenge and being selected to represent that slot in the final issue of volume 1, which I was quite chuffed with!

"Icarus Dangerous" has also been continuing in Paragon of course, now up to episode 7 (!) which will appear in the forthcoming issue 13. The series will conclude in issue 14. I'll post a bit more about that in a later post but for now I just wanted to give a heads up on Issue 3 of Vanguard, which is finally locked and loaded after a bit of a tough year for myself and a few of the other chaps involved. Still, the end product looks damn good I must say, printer did a fantastic job and we even managed to get the full bleed on the pages sorted to perfection this time! Woah, major achievement there! :)

For loads of info about the comic, head on over to the Vanguard blog, where you can check out plenty of sample pages and ogle at the wondrous artwork which adorns the free set of postcards we are giving out. Go on, away with ya!
