Wow, 150 editions of Sunday in Rander! Thanks to all who stopped by all those Sundays ago when we started. This special landmark edition will see the release of the complete edition graphic novel. It is officially for sale on my online store right now, as well as amazon.com. Thank you to everyone who helped support me along the way, as well as all the kickstarter backers who helped fund the production of the book. It’s been a fun 5 years!
A week or so ago I received the Greymatter Art Return to Rander prints! They came out pretty badass and feel amazing! I wanted to commend Gretymatter Art for their top notch quality! Here is a few pics of the prints. They come numbered and signed by me!
I will have some leftover from the kickstarter, so they will be for sale on my store starting in July.
SUCCESS!! The Kickstarter campaign for the Complete Edition of Return to Rander was successful! Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen, I am hard at work on finishing the book up and sending it to print next month. I put in the order for the enamel pins and prints and will post more info as it becomes avaialable! Shortly following shipping of the Kickstarter rewards, the book should be available in many avenues. Keep your eye on the blog for further info.
BIG NEWS! Usually I will save big news for landmark number editions, but I couldn’t wait for 150 for this news. This coming Friday, March 30th, 2018 I will be launching the final Kickstarter campaign for Return to Rander. Exactly 5 years ago I got Issue #1 funded of Return to Rander, and now, I hope we can get the Complete Edition funded. Here is a trailer for the upcoming book! Enjoy.
As fate would have it, my studio has been drenched. I had to dispose of many bookcases, supplies, books, amongst dealing with damaged goods. I haven’t had as much time to work on Rander stuff since I don’t have anywhere comfortable to work, so this week I am going to share something I was going to wait on. But why not get it out there today! Here is the finished cover to the upcoming Return to Rander 300 page complete edition! Let me know what you think!
Now that it is February, I’m starting to get things going for the upcoming con season. I will be returning to Heroes 2018 with the Stock*Pile crew which is very exciting. I have a lot to get done before that show including finishing the new Return to Rander book, Skin Deep 2, and some extra stuff that I am excited to make. Today, I’m sharing the beginning stages of artwork for the Matador trading card in the Stock*Pile Comics trading card Series 1 set. I still have some work to do on it, plus color it.
2018 is flying by and the Sundays in Rander are too! This week, I’m going to be lazy and share another artists’ amazing work! Fellow Stockpile artist Joel Lolar (creator of Forever Winter) was kind enough to illustrate a short story I wrote for the upcoming book! I don’t want to spoil it too much, so here is one of the glorious pages without any lettering done. You can always count on Joel to really establish a great environment for the characters to engage in. I am very excited to see the rest of the pages as he sends them over. Just another reason to get excited for the upcoming Return to Rander complete edition!
Now that I am on to post production on finishing u the Return to Rander “Complete Edition” (Not sure that will be the name) I have been doing some lettering. Here is a behind the scenes panel in the process of lettering. I really think that this additional chapter that takes place in between the original chapters 2 and 3 is really awesome and adds a lot more insight into the characters. Until next time….
Welcome to a new Sunday in Rander. This week I bring to you some exciting news. In the new upcoming 300 page book will be lots of new content, and some of which will be artwork from my fellow stock*piler and lifelong friend Joel Lolar. Joel is best known for Forever Winter his ongoing comic which you can read for FREE at our online store at stockpilecomics.com! Joel will be illustrating a 5 page short story that I wrote and I couldn’t be more excited to see how it turns out. I have some preview shots of pencils on the pages to tease this bad boy up a bit. If you don’t already know, Joel is by far the best background artist I have seen. He puts in more refrence in his surroundings than most put into drawing thier pages. This brings a sense of realism to all his work because it doens’t just look accurate, it looks like you’ve been in a place like that before. It’s all in the small details.
I’m sure once this gets closer to completion, I will make a new Sunday in Rander post showcasing a montage of panels to tease it.
Thanks again Joel.
Welcome back to Sunday in Rander. The past month has been pretty hectic. I had a new child! I started working on “The Lost Issue” of Return to Rander, and finished inking all pages of it. I started working on the new 6th chapter of the Graphic Novel and currently inking. And took a big chunk out of Skin Deep Part 2’s pages. Whoa! So, yes, “The Lost Issue”
As i mentioned in a few editions back, I will be putting out a new version of the Return to Rander graphic novel that is made more closely to how I envision it being distributed from now on. I did mention that it will be 285 pages, but I decided to add in another 15 more pages. These 15 pages make up “The Lost Issue”. It will be an added chapter into the main story that takes place between issues 2 and 3. So, this week I will share page 1’s artwork with everyone. So, back to changing diapers, inking pages and not sleeping.
