What is happening?
Hey Ego Fans!
We’re 1 week away from Denver Comic Con 2016. We’re in the final stretch of getting everything ready and packed to go for the show. We picked up the last of the books today at our printshop. They did a SPECTACULAR job, the books look AMAZING, and we’re really excited to see what people think. I put together a quick map to show where we’re supposed to be at on the floor. We’re actually right across the aisle from Image Comics, so that could be interesting. The excitement is building!!
Our website is just about finished as well. Neil & I are trying to get as much of this locked down before Denver. We’ve been making some last minute tweaks… we got the STORE setup, I’m trying to get all our books added right now actually! In addition, we’re hoping to launch a Patreon account for Ego Comics soon!! And we’re getting everything ready to start implementing a semi-regular Newsletter too.
We finished the the first set of a full series of ‘PAPERDOLLS‘ we’ve been planning. These are going to be available as ‘extras’ with each one of our preview releases. Each short story is setting up a different one of our main characters… and eventually, when we get through all the stories, we’ll have a full set of almost ALL of our main cast. (That, we are REALLY excited to see!!) Tuff and Celeste are both finished, as well as their corresponding ‘monsters’. We got these back from the printers today… and man I’m excited to see what people think of these! We left a few full sheets uncut just in case there are any ‘collectors’ out there interested!
Oh, one more thing, I found out last week that we’ll most likely have a table at the “Mile High Comics Denver Comic Con Pre-Party” event on Thursday night (June 16th). This will be a fun event right before the show, and a great chance to meet some people, and hang out with other creators before the kickoff for the Con. That’s all the info I have on that right now, I’ll update as I hear more. Mile High Comics is located at: 4600 Jason Street, Denver CO, 80211.
We’re really looking forward to next week. I think it’s going to be a really great show for us!! We hope to see you there!!
Hey Ego Fans!
Let me be the first to welcome you to this, the very first, big, bad, bloggedy, blog post for our newly christened website. I know, I know… ’bout time, really! We’ve been planning this site for a little over a year now, and after a few attempts, and a couple assists by people who ‘ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING WITH THIS STUFF (read: Jenn Myers… it’s all Jenn, seriously, she bailed us out of a sinking ship with this one!!! – Thanks Jenn, couldn’t have gotten this site going with out ya’!) We’re FINALLY ROLLING THIS THING OUT.
So, with that outta the way (and me, yer’ friendly neighborhood Neb at the wheel… for now. Neil’s gonna take over a lot of these duties once we get it all rolling..) Let’s get this boat outta the dock, and out to sea. Shall we.
***ANNOUNCEMENT: Ego Comics Infotainment Group will be at Denver Comic Con 2016. We’ve secured table space for this year, and will be setting up shop, and promoting this thing FULL TILT BOOGIE at the show. The show is JUNE 17th – 19th and we’ll be nestled in the Artist Alley at Tables AV141 or AV142 (we’re not sure which one yet, but it should be either of those. We’ll be table-neighbors to our good friend John Myers (John & Jenn are the creative duo that make up Typo’d Mary (http://www.typodmary.com) – they are also from Albuquerque. We’ll post more info as we get closer to the show.
And just so ya’ know… We’re not rolling up there empty handed… Ego Comics will be debuting (2) brand new books… We’ve now finished 2 stories set in our “Stomping Ground” universe. The first is a full length, 36 page book following of one of our very capable female protagonists, Celeste de Serzain, as she embarks on an epic tale of Monsters, Adventure, Revenge! … Pants!
The 2nd book, has just been finished, and is an action packed short story starring none other than “The Infallible Tuff”, the very most famous, and winningest Hyper-Grappler of the Accursed Arena. He’s thrown into the ring against the foul smelling and odoriferous “Blobnoxious” in the fight for domination, desperation, and bragging rights. It promises to be “ANETHEMA IN THE ARENA”
Also… we’re launching Stomping-Ground.com as a platform for webcomics. We’re going to release these stories online as well as collecting them into printed books.
So… sit down, strap in… make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in the upright and locked position…
because… we are GO FOR EGO!
