Gah! Are we ever going to get to see what Tsunami is seeing? I mean, like, up close?! Listen to him! What he’s seeing is so cool he’s having some kind of religious experience…. O_O
First, I want to let you know that our very own Adam DeKraker is part of a roundtable discussion in New York called “SHOULD YOU BE BLACKLISTED, MR. CARD?” this Wednesday (4/10/13) night! Here are the deets:
DC Comics set off a firestorm in the comic book community when it hired Orscon Scott Card, a bestselling author who is also an anti-gay activist, to write a Superman story. But should authors once again be blacklisted due to their political affiliations?
While everyone on our panel supports gay rights and same-sex marriage, not everyone believes publishers should black-list people who hold opposing viewpoints – and if you think you know who takes which position, you’re probably wrong.
Adam will be talking about this from his perspective as a gay creator and he’ll also be giving out very cool The Young Protectors art cards! If you are in the neighborhood, please check it out and say hi!
(Speaking of Adam, I just have to say I love what he’s doing with these pages. Panel 2 captured the exact gag I was going for in my script. It’s so much fun to be able to work with such incredible talents like him and Vero on this project!)
As for me, I’m going to be at an 18+ convention in San Francisco this Sunday (4/14/13)! Bookish Beasts (link is NSFW) takes place at the Center for Sex and Culture at 1349 Mission St. from noon – 6:00 P.M. and I’ll be selling (and signing!) advance copies of Artifice as well as cool new The Young Protectors and Artifice merchandise. It looks like it’s going to be a good time, so if you’re in the Bay Area, please stop by and say hi!

Thank you all so much for your amazing support! A bonus page for this week and one in the bank—incredible! And I’m delighted you picked this scene to accelerate with bonus pages. Interlude One is the most fun for me out of all the scenes that will be in the first book (Prologue, Chapter 1 and Interlude 1), so being able to share it with you more quickly is a special treat for me. Thank you!
So! Looks like it’s a guy-on-guy porn art site Fluke stumbled on. Will this turn out well for Kyle and his buddies? And will we actually get to see what they are seeing?
Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there!
