Mark your calendars, because I’ll be slangin’ copies of Delia Awesome at Emporium Arcade Bar on April 27th. Stop on by, say hello, buy a copy or two of Delia, and check out all the cool art, music, and apparel on display.
I’m very excited to announce that Delia Awesome is part of the Disappearing Media family.
Disappearing Media serves as a showcase for predominantly Chicago area artists, bringing together comics, music, fine art, handcrafts, fiction, and even video games. Anyone who’s a fan of DIY culture owes it to themselves to check out the myriad creativity on display.
Also, stay tuned for more news about issue #3. I’ve long since learned my lesson about announcing the release date prematurely, but I can say with certainty that an announcement is right around the corner.
Hey, gang. In case you haven’t noticed (And judging by the way viewership has dropped off, you did. Or didn’t. Whichever.) this site’s been a pretty quiet neighborhood for the latter half of 2015.
The explanation is simple, really. Work. As in, honest toil. As in, I spent the majority of 2014 unemployed, broke, and racking up massive debt. So, last December, when the opportunity came along to jump onboard an enormous, year long project…well…there really wasn’t anything to consider. (Seriously, I was maybe a month or two away from being forced to move back in with my parents before this freelance gig landed on my plate.)
The flip side of this Christmas miracle is that I haven’t really been able to call my soul my own for the past twelve months. Really, it was all I could do to even wrap up work on issue #2 for a March release. Otherwise, it’s been ten to twelve hour days on average for pretty much a year solid. (Four to six hours on Saturdays and Sundays. ‘Cause, hey, it’s the weekend!)
But now I find myself again with enough free time to properly focus on Delia Awesome. In the few spare moments I’ve had since April, a script for Issue #3 has been gradually taking shape. It’s mostly complete, and the goal is to have the third installment out the door by late February or early March. With a new issue to follow, ideally, every four-ish months until volume one is complete.
2016 is going to be as active as 2015 was quiet, so stay tuned for developments.
Thanks for your continued support. A happy New Year to all.
The good folks at Comic Bastards are giving issue #2 the First Look treatment. Head on over and check it out.
Exciting news, everyone! Delia Awesome has just been accepted for distribution on the Comixology platform! So if you prefer your comics a bit more on the digital side, Team Delia will soon have you covered. Updates to follow the moment issues are available for purchase.
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!
Mark your calendars, Delia Awesome #2 is releasing at the end of July. Keep checking back for news and updates.
Delia’ll see you 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.
