Ok, ok. I know I promised an update the other day, so here it is. We here at the GFL have been super busy lately. As I mentioned previously, Robbie and I, along with a few of our friends, have started a company known as Swampfox Media, LLC. We managed to publish the first issues of our first 3 comicbook titles last month! Our first 3 titles are Heralds & Heretics, No Rest For the Wicked, and Compendium. All 3 titles are available for sale through our website (www.swampfoxmedia.com) and for digital download through DriveThru Comics. We're currently working on the second issues of each title, as well as some children's books!
Robbie and I got to go to the New York Comic Con (NYCC) and to the XCon in Myrtle Beach, SC. Both were a blast!! The NYCC was crazy! It's so huge, with so many vendors, gamers, etc! We were very thankful to Victor Dandridge (from Vantage:Inhouse Productions) for the use of his table for 2 hrs. Robbie and our partner, Lee, did about 5 interviews with magazines, radio, and bloggers. It was such an experience. The XCon in Myrtle Beach was also very cool! It's a MUCH smaller venue, but that had its perks as well. We had the chance to meet with some comic icons, folks from DC and Marvel, as well as Bob Camp (Ren & Stimpy, Thundercats, GI Joe....basically anything great from the 80s/early 90s!!). Since it was such a smaller venue, we really got a chance to pick the brains of other artists, inkers, publishers, etc. All in all, both were great experiences.
Now its back to work, and back to regular life. We're still working on Swampfox Media, we've managed to launch the live website, added a new webcomic--"General Snobbery" by our web guru Adams, started the online store, and even worked on making our Facebook page a little more exciting. We've met tons of people, and had a great time doing it. Robbie has found another job, in the meantime, and is working about 30-40 hrs a week. While its been nice not having him work so many hours, the pay cut is killing us. I've had to start looking for a job too. :( I hate the thought of going back to work, but I hate the idea of being on the street even more! lol! Oh well.
That's pretty much the update on our life with Swampfox Media. Making comics, going to conventions, meeting new people, and learning a lot!! I'll try to be better about updating in the future. I've also updated a few times on my other blog, Amazing Atticus, about how our 3rd little guy is doing. We're getting closer to his 3rd open heart surgery, so feel free to pop over to his blog to get the details. Well, that's about it for now. Time to hit the bed early, so I can wake up early and get busy cooking!! From all of us here at the GFL, we hope you and your family all have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
