This is a big deal for me. My first ever creator-owned comic book. I'm thrilled to have the immensely talented artist and story-teller Chee Yang Ong, who goes simply by Chee, as my partner in crime. He's doing full art chores all the way to color.
It's on sale in September--all five issues of it, actually. I'm posting the cover to issue #1 here just to show it off. It's by the amazing David Finch and colored by Comics Experience coloring instructor Chris Sotomayor. Four other super-star artists are contributing covers to the other four issues.
In the weeks to come, I'll be talking quite a bit about 5 DAYS TO DIE, but here on this blog, I'll keep it in the spirit of Comics Experience and talk about a lot of what I learned going through the whole process, development, finding Chee, working on a book that I'm not getting paid for up front, all of it.
Send your questions about any of how this all works to me on Twitter where I'm @comicexperience or simply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, I'm just going to look at this cover for a while longer...
