For those of you who are unaware, Feeding Ground #1 will not be released today due to unforeseen issues with the overseas printer. The new release date is October 13th!
BUT, for those in the NYC area, we will be selling Advance Copies this Friday at 8PM at a Launch Party at Bergen Street Comics, a well-appointed comics salon in Brooklyn!
Come for the comics and stay for the posters, original art, tequila, and Negra Modelos.
We'll also be appearing at NYC Comic Con and will be announcing our schedule soon.
Lastly, this is ostensibly a process/ experience blog. One lesson that the whole experience of creating my own business/ comic has burned into my soul - expect the unexpected. I haven't allowed myself to get excited until the book is actually in my hands. Given the odd snafus and sidetracks (as well as much good fortune), it's worked for me so far. I also won't be too surprised if the ink somehow spontaneously combusts.

You may have noticed that FEEDING GROUND #3 is not on the roster for Archaia's November solicitations. Instead, our editor, Paul Morrissey, has created a release schedule that better reflects our 2 month-per-issue production schedule but avoids going bi-monthly.
Issues 1 & 2 will still be released in Sept and Oct and then Issues 3 & 4 will come out in December and January. February will be another break month and you can get the final two issues in March and April, respectively.
In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at the cover to Issue 3. As an inverted version of the traditional Mexican "Sugar Skull," it speaks to the true nature of one of our principal characters.
