I didn't get everything accomplished that I wanted to in 2013, but I'm proud that I was able to launch both Perils On Planet X and Gravedigger online in February, and haven't missed a weekly update on either comic.
A big shout-out is due to my amazing collaborators on those projects: Rick Burchett, Gene Gonzales and Ian Sokoliwski, who helped make sure we stayed on schedule. Both comics serials will continue in 2014.
I also began re-presenting Femme Noir stories online this past Summer, in anticipation of a new graphic novel that Joe Staton and I (with inker Rick Burchett & colorist Matt Webb) will be putting together in 2014. I'd hoped to have this mostly written by now, but it's taking me a bit longer than I expected. Hopefully, I'll have script pages to Joe shortly after New Year's.
I'm also moving ahead on my graphic novel "secret project" with artist Peter Grau, which I also hope to get put together in 2014.
Sincere gratitude to all of you who have supported my comics efforts this year, especially those who spread the word and shared links. I am genuinely grateful.
As to 2014, I intend to keep plugging away on my comics, maintaining a stellar updating schedule, and working toward eventual print editions of my comics properties.
Outside of my comics efforts, the second half of 2013 saw a decline (due to blogger burn-out) in my sci-fi blogging (Space: 1970) and my writing of DVD and Blu-ray reviews (DVD Late Show). I plan to return to both with a renewed enthusiasm and energy in 2014, as long as I believe that people are getting something out of my efforts.
That all said, I want to wish all of you a very fine 2014. May we all see our goals realized, seize our victories wherever we can, and be relatively untouched by tragedy and misfortune.
Happy New Year!!
