Beyond the Breach #1 FOC is TODAY!
I’ve been telling everyone that the final order cutoff for Beyond the Beach #1 was Monday, June 20th, but apparently, Monday (today!) is the 21st and I am an idiot who’s unable to read a calendar.
You’ve all heard me talk about this book and how much I love it, so I’m not going to keep hitting you over the head with it. Instead, I’m just going to drop a preview below and let you experience the opening pages for yourself.
If you like what you see, let your local comic shop know. Damian, Patrico, Hass and I have been knocking ourselves out with this one and we hope you’ll come along on this trip with us.
Out This Week
Amazing Spider-Man #69
Apparently, I was wrong and Amazing Spider-Man #69 is out this week and not last week. Please be aware: I am often wrong. It’s my “thing”. This will not be the last time I unintentionally misguide you in my newsletter (see above, see below).
You can read a preview of this sucker over here.
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc, you can respond to this email directly and it’ll go to my inbox OR you can click on the little word balloon icon at the bottom of the newsletter and post your question publicly. I’ll try to answer everything I can within the newsletter.
Another that I’ve been getting a lot (and so am paraphrasing from a half dozen similar emails):
Q: “Has Predator been canceled? Can you give us a status update?”
A: Predator has not been canceled. It was just pushed back to later in the year. We’re all hard at work on the book — I’m currently working on the script to issue #5 and Kev Walker is well into art on #3.
As to the release date, I don’t have specifics at this time. Nothing that I can share at least.
I promise all of you that the wait will be worth it. I’ve been really happy with the scripts and Kev’s art is absolutely stunning. I wish I could show you the pages in my inbox, but I’m pretty sure that Marvel would have me murdered for it.
A Double Batch of Lasagna
After promising a bribe of Lasagna photos in every newsletter, I completely neglected to include one last week and got called out for it on twitter and email. I feel like a horrible, horrible person. I beg your forgiveness and promise that I will never deprive you of the handsome man’s face ever again. To make up for it, here are TWO photos.
This past weekend, I moved my office out of the basement and into the spare bedroom upstairs. My old office had no door and was a thoroughfare for anyone going to the garage or storage room (which is our dry/canned goods pantry). The new office is smaller but more conducive to knuckling down and getting shit done.
Lasagna seems to prefer it in the new office and has been spending about 90% of my workday chilling next to my computer. Here he is as I type this up:
Anyway, that’s all from me this week.
