2021 Movie Log

Here's my movie log for 2021 (after the jump!)

A little more than one a day.

I don't think I'll pull that off in 2022!

Happy New Year!

2021 was a heck of a busy year for me.

I wrote a bunch of comics -- some of which aren't even coming out until next year -- started a couple of prose projects, two of which are ALSO due out next year, more on that as soon as I can tell you, and I kept up on my 2x weekly Downside comic over on Patreon.

I also put together a Downside collection, now available on Amazon.

...But there's a catch: Amazon's POD service is stretched thin by a graphics-heavy book. There are occasional printer lines. Drives me nuts (and they're never in the same place in the book, owing to the print-on-demand nature) but it's the best I can do for the book! Fulfilling a Kickstarter is a bit beyond me right now. (I may try another book in the future, however. We'll see.)

So the hardcopy is a little iffy -- but the KINDLE version looks great!

You can find it here: DOWNSIDE Vol. 1 @ Amazon

If you give it a try and it makes you chuckle, please leave a review. 

My second bit of new is that I complete an 8 page Nick Landime story to celebrate the character's (and my comic career's!) 20th anniversary. More news on that this coming spring!

And of course 2022 will also see:

More Beast Wars
GI Joe (inspired by the Sunbow cartoons)
An Alien Samurai Dinosaur Warriors book (based on Dimitri Vegas' concept)
Potions, Inc from Mad Cave

...And a few others I can't speak of yet!

I hope 2022 is safe, healthy, and prosperous for you and yours.

Take care out there!

--Erik!
End of 2021

A New Comics Writing Essay: FINISH THEM!

 One of the things I have in the prose tier of my Patreon is an essay series on comics advice I've given when asked.

I've posted one a few months back on this blog, and hey, it's time for another! After the jump, you'll see the best way to improve your work as a storyteller. (As noted, I'm not the only one to shout this piece of advice from the rooftops. It's as rock solid as you'll find!)

It's Free Comic Book Day!

So here's a very silly, very quick free comic, below the break.

The plot point was left alone for so long it made me chuckle.

Comic Writer Advice from my Patreon!

Hey!

Here's the thing -- I, like many, many others, have a Patreon. What I do is two comic strips a week (which, a few months later, become public), random blog thoughts, experimental comics, and occasionally fan art.

I also do a weekly essay in a Prose Tier. The last few weeks, I've been writing about the advice I give writers who ask me (some of it is short hits, stuff I'd give at a convention, and some is stuff I've given to folks who ask for script notes.)

In any case, I wanted to share one of those essays with you folks who stop by my website!

This one is about the importance of learning to write small. Check it out after the jump!
