Yep, it’s that time again. I’m doing another Kickstarter!
Hope you guys dig blood, and axes….and beards and swearing. If it goes well, I hope to do a volume of BLOOD SONGS every year, since I have a lot more stories from the period in me… it’s just rife with rich history and bloody events. I’ve never been able to do a period book, until now. ( And the format doesn’t really fit with general publishers )

The pre-order is for a full month, so there’s hopefully plenty of time for folks to get in on the ground floor if they want. I can’t speak to what quantities I’ll have left once pre-orders are fulfilled though. … MORE...
Heya guys, the IN SQUID WE TRUST tshirt is now up at 78SQUID.com for preorder until December 14th! And the HAIL SQUID shirts completely sold through so I’m taking new orders for that one too, if you missed out last time.

Until November 1st I have a few goodies up on 78SQUID.com that will either disappear or change price once Halloween is over. Plus, it’s the debut of the FIDDLE STICKS sketchbook! Regular and painted art editions!
Yes, shameless plugging. But also… BLACKHOLERS is coming. ( And DAGON is at the printers so Im not going to just twiddle my thumbs. )
Here’s a list of where I know, or hope to be for the second half of you year.
If you’ve not yet heard, my next project is one I’ve always wanted to do, adapt HP Lovecraft’s DAGON into comic book form.
The backing you guys gave me, by merely purchasing a book and maybe some prints and a shirt, on my first one, THE SQUIDDER, blew me away and was amazing proof that a creative can go outside established entities that normally bankroll a project and take debatable percentages of the IP a person creates as part of the bargain.
Because of you guys, I could print a modest print run of book I could do exactly the way I wanted, on my terms.… MORE...
