So I don't know what to say. I probably shouldn't be printing this. But this isn't a new character or anything like that so its not like I'm letting the cat out the bag or anything. Its just a new teams take on the IP, so hopefully no one gets mad and sues me. But I had to share, cuz I fear it will
never be seen. and that sucks.
been talking with artist
Chris Cross,http://www.chriscross-eternalkick.blogspot.com/, about
collaborating on some works. I have been a fan of his for a bit and low and
behold, Cross was a fan of mine. So it was a chocolate and peanut butter
not done anything comic book related in a few years now and the only
reason was to do some serious lovin' on the page or get
paid well...preferably both. I've fucking seriously paid my comic book dues..and I use
the word "fucking" to emphasis how serious I am when I say that.lol
yeah, we talked alot. then one day he convinces me to entertain the
idea of doing a book for Top Cow. I have to say convince because A
thats usually not the style I do (but was open to do styles outside of my
comfort zone) and B theres a little history there that made it that
But in the spirit of change and evolving I
went through the motions. DId a new style, took a huuuuuge fucking pay
cut (note the use of the word again) and squashed the history.
at the end of the day, to make a longer story shorter, it was for
not...and for once I wasn;t even involved. I did my work and kept my
big mouth shut...yet small peepees prevail. whos small peepee? I know
not. but it was big enough to stop this project dead.
source tells me. no one from the studio ever contacts me and it was 4
months worth of work, gone. bye bye...with no regard, no communication. what a huge disappointment.
hope top cow sees this and realizes how disappointing that was, is. this
project could of rocked it. We were all proud of our work, you had a
killer creative team dummy heads!
I'm over it, just thought I'd share the feelings I went through when I was dealing with it a few weeks back.lol, sharing is good. now it don't belong to me. it belongs to all of us.lol
So Alive not Dead viewers, if you dig this
shit and feel moved enough, contact top cow and tell them how much it
sucked they couldn't work it out. whatever the fuck it was. For the
sake of future awesome projects they could possible blow.
I for one can't cross (pun not intended) that bridge again...keep doing what I do and I'll keep getting what I get.
but I have to add that at the end of the day it was worth it, because participation is key.
