Due to unforeseen circumstances…blah…stay tuned…yadda. Honestly, I’m so busy finishing up what promises to be an excellent issue that I barely have time to write this post. Hang in there, gang! It’ll be out soon!
I’m very late to the party with this one, but whatever. Here are the photos from this year’s Chicago Zine Fest. I had so much fun at this event. And met so many great people, too. Also, being my very first time tabling a fest, I learned a great deal throughout the course of the day. CZF 2015 can’t arrive fast enough.
So status on issue #2 is as follows: it’s still coming.
Life and work managed to get in the way over the past few months…as they do…but I’ll be turning over the second (and much tighter) draft of the script to Jane this week. And as soon as I’m back home, it’s straight to work on issue #3.
I’ll be producing both installments as close to concurrently as one can with this sort of thing. Back to the Future 2 and 3 style.
The idea being to have both issues out this summer – #2 sometime in June and #3 shortly thereafter. I’ll be posting previews of pages and cover art as per usual. But beyond that I expect a somewhat slow Delia-related news cycle over the next month or two as I’ll be doing my best to go off the grid and make up for lost time.
Hey Delia fans, the good folks at Comics Anonymous have just posted a review for issue #1! So be sure to head on over and check it out along with their coverage of the London Super Comic Con 2014. A big thank you to Gary at Comics Anonymous for taking some time out of his busy schedule to give Delia a read.
That’s right, Delia fans. Now there’s one more place you can go to find issue #1. Logan Square’s own Uncharted Books. Just steps from the Logan Square blue line station.
And don’t forget, Team Delia will be at the Chicago Zine Fest in just three short weeks! Tell your friends.
If the need to stay out of the cold is good for one thing, it’s been to keep me at my desk and working on the script for issue #2…which I’ll be turning over to Jane this weekend. Not much else to report, though we’re both very excited to be attending the Chicago Zine Fest in March and hope to have Delia’s second outing ready by then.
Yes, we can count to two.
The second issue will be dropping mid-March to coincide with the Chicago Zine Fest.
What better way to end the year (for Team Delia, at any rate) than with some accolades from the community?
Delia Awesome #1 was selected as one of Comic Bastards’ Best Indie Books of 2013!
Thanks so much to Dustin, Erik, and everyone else at Comic Bastards for all the attention they’ve given Delia. And to everyone else who’s read, reviewed, bought, sold, and otherwise made the work Jane and I do feel all the more worthwhile.
