The rumours are 2rue! We're doing a second volume of True Patriot!
Details are still forthcoming but we're basically following the schedule and formula of the first book with one major change. Look for our fundraising campaign on Kickstarter beginning some time in November.
We hope we can once again count on your support!
Ottawa area backers!
Comic Book Shoppe (Clyde location) is hosting a True Patriot signing on Saturday, September 7th. Jack Briglio, Tom Fowler, J. Torres, and Andy Belanger (tentative) are scheduled to be there from 1-5 PM. We hope to see you there.
True Patriot will be at FanExpo Friday to Sunday!
You can get your copy signed by close to a dozen of our contributors, some of whom will be signing at our table, others who have tables of their own. As for our table, look for the True Patriot banner in Artists Alley. On the map, we're P33 listed under J. Torres and Jack Briglio who will be there most of the time.
You can also catch the following creators at the table during these times...
10-12 Howard Wong
12-2 Ramon Perez, J. Bone
2-4 Adam Gorham
4-6 Fred Kennedy
10-12 Howard Wong
12-2 Ramon Perez
2-4 J. Bone, Jay Stephens
4-6 Adam Gorham
12-2 Jay Stephens
We're also part of the "Canadian Superhero Renaissance" panel on Friday at 11:15 AM in room 703. Fred Kennedy is moderating, plus J. Torres and Ramon Perez are among the panelists.
Hope to see you at FanExpo!
Most of the books are in the mail and on their way to our backers!
By "most" I mean that there are only a handful of people waiting on their book plate sketches and a handful of retailers who will have their orders hand-delivered on the day of a True Patriot signing. Woo! We're actually already hearing from people across Canada and the US about books arriving.
Speaking of signings, our event at The Dragon last Saturday was quite the success. Thanks again to Jenn and the Dragon staff for their hospitality, and thanks to everyone who came out to see us.
This Saturday is our big party at the Comic Book Lounge (Toronto). Adrian Alphona, Howard Wong, J. Bone, Brian Evinou, Ramon Perez, Jack Briglio, Jay Stephens, and I are scheduled to appear. The event starts at 7 PM. Join us!
Once again, thanks again for your support. I'm so happy to hear that people who have seen the book thus far are loving it. Remember, you can let us know what you think on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/truepatriotcomic) or Twitter account (@TruePatriotCmx). We'd love to hear from you!
Keep your eye on that mailbox :)
We've started shipping "book pre-orders"! All International and US, plus about 75 of our Canadian orders are in the mail, with the exception of a handful of backers whose addresses or mailing labels were incomplete. Most of those are being corrected right now. However...
We need to please hear from MARC MOORCROFT and TY BUTTARS (both from Toronto?). We've tried to reach out to these backers in vain, but hopefully they see this. We need your mailing addresses!
If you're waiting for a "sketch + book" or "sketch upgrade" order, we hope to start sending those out next week. We're still waiting on some artwork from a couple of creators.
We're also in the process of shipping to some of our retailer backers and/or arranging drop offs/pick ups.
Lastly, don't forget our first signing event at The Dragon (Guelph) this Saturday from 1-5 PM. There will be cupcakes.
Thank you for your attention. More shipping updates next week!
