Yeah, I'm on the ball, buddy...already back with my second big announcement. Now, I wanted to save the two best news items for last, but I couldn't resist. Now, announcement #2 and #3 will be the biggies.
"The Curse of Stranglehold" is an upcoming graphic novel that I am writing featuring the beautiful art of Melanie Florencio. Without giving too much away, "The Curse of Stranglehold" is a horror story, centered around a teenage girl who discovers that a local legend about an undead soul terrorizing kids in the woods may be real! There's a good mix of present day setting with flashbacks to the 70s...so this story really incorporates a lot of my loves...the 1970s, horror, and music.
Melanie is currently teaching art stuff at a summer camp (how awesome does that sound?), but she'll dive right into working on "The Curse of Stranglehold" in late August/early September. If everything goes as planned, we should have it all wrapped up in early 2011.
Periodically, I'll be posting updates about the progress of "Stranglehold"...for the time being, feast your eyes on some stunning conceptual design sketches Melanie's been working on...nice!
Yeah, it's gonna be awesome, folks...
Til next time,
