Check out our latest page art here!
Hey everyone, Dave here with a wee update on where Killtopia #5 production is at, and to share some brand new artwork with you.
Killtopia #5 production update
Artist Clark Bint is now working on the final sequence of the book (warning: it's an emotional one!) and the big showdown at Wreck-Fest X is looking absurdly good. My aim was always to make this an Avengers: Endgame style final issue - with a massive scale and where every main character has something to do during the last battle, and I think we've pulled it off.
Howdy! You can subscribe to this blog to get a free email round-up every other Friday. Or you can support my writing for just £3.50 a month to get bonus comic writing tutorials, Kickstarter guides and more exclusive stuff.
Over on colours, Lou Ashworth is just raising their game time and time again, with about half the issue coloured (we've got some new art below and the colours just heighten everything to an absurd degree).
And at the weekend, I sent the first half of the book to our returning letterer, Micah Myers, who will be making a start on the them soon.
We're getting closer and closer to the book being finished, but perhaps not as far along as we'd planned - thanks to work, study and illness issues across the team. We're indie creators and life sometimes gets in the way.
We also need to allow some time for proofing, final designs at our publisher and printing, so with all that in mind, an early July shipping date is looking more likely. However, if we can go sooner, I'll send books out the moment I get them from the printers.
We're all working as hard as we can, and the book is looking brilliant, so it'll be worth the wait.
