Massive changes have hit Sharkipede World Headquarters since I felt so confident about what was going on, and would be going on, now and in the immediate future.
The big change is that a good friend of mine, who is also my sometime writing partner, is now planning to leave the country for several years, starting sometime early in the second quarter of next year. I'll spare you all the personal whining-- I'll miss him like hell-- but this has also completely changed my current plans and my plans for the next six months.
A large project which we have been working on since May of this year, and which had been perking along slowly on the back of the fire, has been moved to the front burner and has been boiling nicely. We want to take a shot at having it ready to go to press before he leaves the country.
We've been busting our chops over finishing the scripts for a month, and if all goes well, I should be able to start working on the breakdowns and art next week.
This week, of course, is SPX. I am planning to be there, with lots of minicomics, including a lovely little new one with a silk screened cover. If you're going to be there, please come by and say hi, and also heckle me as I present an award at the Ignatz Banquet.
I'm going to talk to my friend about blogging as it relates to the project, but even if we decide to keep it on the quiet, I'll try to find more things to write about. If nothing else, it should get cooler eventually, and I'll be able to plan something more than rants about the heat.
