Place your bets, folks! Who survived? Who didn’t? We’ll find out this Sunday!
Huzzah! The second installment of the complete SCAPULA book series is in the works, with a tentative January 2014 release. This volume collects all of the stories from 2010 to 2012, effectively wrapping up the “Sunday years” in book form.
The extras in Volume 2 include a number of rare or unpublished comics featuring Scap and his criminal co-stars. Here is what’s currently lined-up (may be subject to change):
“Unfinished and Untitled” – The very first Scapula comic ever made (albeit unfinished and untitled), and perhaps the most offensive story I’ve ever drawn!
The Villain – A proto-SCAPULA comic. This fully-painted story is a dark look at how the character might have turned out had I chosen a real-world, non-comedic setting for the series. Also the first appearance (kinda’, sorta’) of Bone China.
The Sinister Monster Doom Legion versus Randy – A storyboard for an unmade animated short. The villains unite their forces to stop their most hated nemesis: a bratty six year-old kid!
Also included are some of the guest strips I’ve done for other webcomics; I’ve created an awful lot of these over the years, but these selections are my personal favorites.
If you have suggestions of your own for what you’d like to see as extra material, leave a comment below. Maybe I’ll take your suggestion, maybe I wont, but at least you’ll have the satisfaction of getting to nag me!
Every year, a large coalition of cartoonists called the Comic Creators for Freedom come together to help create awareness of the serious problem of human trafficking. In exchange for donations, people can receive a custom wallpaper filled with comic creator’s characters in fun themes. This year’s topic is ‘Awkward School Photos’, which means it’s time we get a peek at Scapula during his greasy teen years!
“The Comic Creators for Freedom Fundraiser is back for our fourth year and ready to make a difference in the world again! Each year, comic creators from around the world come together to raise funds in support of Love146, a charitable organization whose goal is to end child trafficking and exploitation.”
The donation drive goes live today! See it for yourself at comiccreatorsforfreedom.com.
