Why is the War of the Independents banner being posted, you ask? Well, because, as of yesterday, Bounty Hunter is going to War. That's right, I talked to series creator Dave Ryan yesterday and he has agreed to pencil Bounty Hunter into the series somewhere.
It'll just be a cameo, but that's good enough for me. It's all I wanted in the first place.
I'll keep everyone well informed, trust me. (well, on stuff I'm allowed to talk about, of course.)

Anyone stumbling across this blogsite by pure happenstance might be wondering what Bounty Hunter is about. Well, the storyline itself is Ultra Top Secret (shhhhh) at the moment, but in general....just think "Dungeons and Dragons meets the real world. With super-heroes." The series itself is planned to be the #0 issue, followed by a 6 issue limited series. After that I plan to switch over to novel format for a trilogy of stories, with maybe a one-shot comic here and there. I also want to expand out into audio dramas at some point, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
As for actual work on the #0 issue? Well after the setback of my first artist moving out of town and taking the artwork with him, I've had to start over. Luckily, it only took me one day to find a replacement. I don't know if that's some kind of record on the indie business, but I'm counting myself lucky. The artist I signed is named Gustavo Magalhaes and he is a 19 year old currently residing in Brazil. I will post one of his character sketches from Bounty Hunter below.
And for all the people (all 2 of you lol) out there wondering if Bounty Hunter will be turning up in Dave Ryan's War of the Independents, all I can say is STAY TUNED. Alright, the truth is, I have no idea. You'll all be the first to know (after me). Dave's a busy guy. :)
I'll try to get some more pics up soon. Gus is busy working on a number of different things for me right now. Yeah, I'm running the poor guy ragged.
And thanks to Chris Jones at Blackwood Studio for the nifty Bounty Hunter logo above. It's the title logo for the comic itself. If you'd like Chris to do some graphic designs for you, Click Here to e-mail him.
