The Gazette / The Beyond Anthology Kickstarter
« on: March 16, 2015, 09:32:10 AM »

Beyond is an anthology of queer sci-fi and fantasy comics.  Featuring 18 stories by 26 contributors, Beyond is a 250+ page, black and white, queer comic anthology, full of swashbuckling space pirates, dragon slayers, death-defying astronauts, and monster royalty.  Each story celebrates and showcases unquestionably queer characters as they explore the galaxy, mix magic, have renegade adventures, and save the day!

The Beyond Anthology was born from a desire to see stories inspired by people like us (queer people with diverse genders and sexualities) slaying dragons, piloting spaceships, getting into trouble, and saving the day—without having to read for their queerness from between the lines.  We wanted to see beautiful, heartwarming, and adventurous stories that reflect and celebrate the many facets of gender and sexuality, without having to worry that their queerness would cast them as a villain, a pariah, or turn them into a cautionary tale.

The Tavern / The Season You're Most Creative
« on: October 18, 2014, 06:55:49 AM »
As Fall is around for most of us and Winter will soon follow, when do you find you get the most work done?

I'm a Fall/Winter person personally. It gets darker sooner and I have more of a reason to stay bundled up and by my computer. I go out a lot during the Summer and Spring is just as busy. Since I just have to write, model, and maintain the website, I have a few more freedoms. However, my artist is my roomie and she seems to adhere to the same routine of doing most of her art in the Winter with her heater turned on full blast.

The Tavern / Inktober!
« on: October 16, 2014, 05:16:56 AM »
If you participated in Inktober this year, add a link to your tumblr or twitter where you posted up your inks ^__^

Sorry it's almost over, but yo still have 15 days to participate...

Need some information about Inktober, here you go:

31 Days 31 Drawings

Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.

InkTober rules:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)

3) Hashtag it with #inktober

4) Repeat

Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.

The Gazette / O Human Star Kickstarter
« on: October 16, 2014, 04:44:05 AM »

Alastair Sterling was the inventor who sparked the robot revolution, and because of his sudden death he didn't see any of it. That is, until he unexpectedly wakes up in a robot body that matches his old one exactly and finds out that 16 years have passed. Brendan Pinsky, Al's former research partner and secret lover, now runs one of the largest robot manufacturers in the country. And Brendan's dearest project, Sulla - a highly advanced robot with a mind copied from Al's - is now living as a teenage girl.

O Human Star follows the story of these three coming together as an unconventional family in a not-too-distant future.

The Tavern / Amazon Buys Comixology
« on: April 11, 2014, 06:34:34 AM »
There's nothing quite like taking a massive, heavy library of beloved books and shrinking it into an e-reader. Amazon, having already accomplished that with its tremendously popular digital book service, is now targeting the comic book market. The company is purchasing Comixology, a digital comic book service with hundreds of millions of users and apps for all of your devices.

Comixogy CEO David Steinberger is quite fond of the agreement, the terms of which were not disclosed (we're assuming it's at least $3.50 -- comics these days are awfully expensive). "There is no better home for comixology than Amazon to see this vision through," Steinberger says in the announcement. "Working together, we look to accelerate a new age for comic books and graphic novels." It's just a wild guess, but we're expecting the first such "acceleration" will involve integrating Amazon payments and the Comixology userbase over to Amazon. It's not yet clear if Comixology brand will stand on its own (Amazon already sells single issues and graphic novels on Kindle), but we're asking the company for more, but don't expect to hear much -- the deal hasn't closed just yet, but it's expected to in the next few months.

Update: We heard back from Amazon -- join us below for more.

As expected, Amazon's only saying so much about its plans for Comixology. We asked whether it's potentially headed to Amazon Prime, and were given a no comment. As far as Kindle integration though, that's a given. "We expect we'll find ways to make both comiXology and Kindle work better together," a rep said. Amazon will retain the comiXology branding, and support the existing apps.

Oh my stomach hurts from laughing at this...
