Who’s that other chair f- Oh, haha, whoops, sorry!
Hey book preorders are still open! Production is going along swimmingly, I hope to have a cover to show you soon, but for now, here’s this week’s sample of the ten million art tweaks I’ll be doing-
These tweaks will NOT be online ever, so if you want a far prettier Darken, this is your only chance!
Not too bad, huh? Interested in a copy?
Here’s how it works- I need preorders so I can afford the print run in the first place- Comics are my actual job now, so oddly enough there isn’t a lot of spare income around- By preordering you’re helping this to happen! I can’t guarantee a completion date for it (it’s looking like January 2012), but I will be working flat-out to get this done and on your doorstep soon. Also, you’re getting it slightly cheaper by preordering, and it’ll be your only chance to get a sketched one, so it’s good for both of us! I’m hoping to have the second book out not long after the comic’s finished, too, so it’ll all be wrapped up neatly in two volumes.
Also, for a measley £3 extra, you can get your copy sketched and signed in, feel free to request a specific sketch if you like! Only pre-orders will get sketches!
So, who’s up for this? :)
Gort, Mink, Casper, Komi and Mary find themselves standing in an empty black space, illuminated by a single, enormous white spotlight...
MINK: The gem!
GORT: What is the meaning of this?!
CASPER: You might want to ..y'know, not yell at the lord of all devils, Gort.
MINK: .. Asmodeus?
ASMODEUS: I must assure you, dragonling..
ASMODEUS: ..we are not on first name terms yet.
Asmodeus is seated in the central one of three enormous thrones, inspecting the party through his stylish pince-nez. Mephistopheles is seated to his right, looking thoroughly bored, and the final throne is conspicuously empty. Asmodeus spins the gem containing Baal's essence in the air just above his palm...
ASMODEUS: I believe I will take this for now. I am not inclined to allow a mortal to keep a device that can trap a devil, even one foolish enough to possess a human.
GORT: Don't you dare let him out! *shakes fist*
MEPHISTOPHELES: Silence, you fool!
ASMODEUS: *frowns* And who is this little man, that presumes to tell me what I can and cannot do?
GORT: I am Gort!
GORT: Lord of Hellfire! Vanquisher of Baal! Slayer of a thousand foes! Champion of Darken and a hundred other planes of existence! *goes on in this vein for some time*
MEPHISTOPHELES: *grimaces* ..my Disciple, lordship.
ASMODEUS: Ah, yes. That one.
