Them's the Breaks

So, as some of you are aware, the last few months I've been working on an anthology of comics and short stories to be published in print at the end of the month. It has been a hell of a road and the work that has been turned in has been glorious. We've had submissions from brand new up and coming artists through to tried and tested comic creation veteran teams. But as good as the work was from everyone, the fates (or the printers) were against us in the end. Computer deaths and technical difficulties galour saw us holding off printing for too long and in the end the printers let us down.

We wanted a BIG release for the Age of Savagery and we still do. I have never been one to give up easily and though it hurt me to do it, it was agreed that the release date would be postponed until March next year. Yes, that seems excessive, but with the summer gone and most of the major Comic Cons either wrapped up or sold out, it was decided we would plan ahead.

Now, this affords two advantages. first, it gives us in editing a chance to put some more layers of polish on the final publication. The second (and the bit I'm actually excited about) is we have a chance to add more content. More art, more stories, more crazy barbarian goodness! I've been doodling additional illustrations for a few days now to act as filler, but now I've got the time to add a whole new story to the mix. I need time to write it, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

So with that in mind, THE BRIEF still stands, but with a new deadline taken up to December 20th.
