2016 Update

It’s been a while since we updated, we were going to start this blog update with “Happy New Year!” but by golly, seems January is almost gone!

First off, we want to thank everyone for sticking with Dash, and for the continued positive feedback we’ve received on the book. We had originally planned for the book to be released a heck of a lot more timely than it has been. There’ve been a lot of factors contributing to the delays, some in our control, some completely out of control. Thank you for sticking with us, and a big thank you to those who contributed to the Northwest Kickstarter campaign this past fall that ensured issue 4’s arrival.

Going forward, 2016 is shaping up to be a busy year for us. Our goal is to turn issue 5 into Northwest Press mid-March, with a late Spring release. By June our aim is for Northwest Press to have issue 6, so ideally people will have it in hand by San Diego Comic Con.

After that we’ll be putting all our efforts into the Trade, which will include brand new stories with some fantastic guest artists, new and updated pages from the original arc, along with issues 1-6.

The next two issues will be a few pages longer than the previous issues, which gives us a little extra room for some fun stuff, including pinups from some fantastic guest artists.

Issue 5 is underway–here’s a pic of the issue 5 script edits and thumbnails in progress.

In the “things we haven’t mentioned” department, Issue 4 is out and Jordan Cruz of The Pulp, Foxy Jazzabelle of Black Girl NerdsLeander Lacy of Capes and Scowls, and Andrea Speed of cXpulp had some things to say about it.

Don’t forget, if you can’t find issue 4 in your local comic shop you can order it directly from Northwest Press. And digitally from Comixology, Google Play, Gumroad, and iBooks.

Dave had a great time talking to the fine gentlemen from both Comic Book Bears and from Pop Addled  podcasts this fall.

Finally, Dash earned a spot on Pipedream Comics top Comixology Submit titles of 2015.

Thank you all, once again, for the continued support, stick around as we wrap up The Case of the Mysterious Zita Makara!
