I’m kind of hyped for this year’s Comic-Con, I can only attend on Sunday but I expect it to be a great day. After hanging at Comic-Con for the day I always come back re-energized for this project.
I use Comic-Con as a way to mark our progress. When attending Comic-Con 2008, I had 22 pages penciled. When attending Comic-Con 2009, I had 61 pages penciled and this year, when we attend Comic-Con 2010, I’ll have 102 pages penciled (103 if I crank another one out before Sunday). That’s 40 pages year over year from 2008-2009 and 2009-2010. Do I wish I could have more done? Yes, but I’ll take what I can get, a consistant average ain’t bad.
If we continue at this rate, by next year I should only have about 8 or 9 more pages to pencil. Chapter 4 ends on page 119 and chapter 5, while not yet broken down into pages/panels, is projected to be about 32 pages once penciled.
So, holla at yo’ boys, DMC and J-Dub while in San Diego. We will definately hit the CCAS event (see below) but after that we are chillin’. Hope to see you there!

Moderator Buzz Dixon (Snokie Stories) and panelists Sergio Cariello (The Action Bible) and Eric Jansen (The Christ of Prophecy) discuss the challenges involved in adapting the words of scripture into visual media. A short devotional message will precede the panel discussion, put on by the Christian Comic Arts Society. Santa Rosa Room, Marriott Hotel and Marina.
