Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry about the no posts lately but I've been busy, lots of dog related problems. I'm starting on the house this weekend, I'm also looking for a cheap 4x4 with a SMALL engine. It costs me 30.00 just to get groceries with the van. So if you know of any let me know. I'm looking into some more solar panels too. The Power!!!!!!

Let's see. Well, I'm no longer working on Anita Blake, basically I didn't want to work with Marvel on this book, I know they will destroy it. They do good superhero comics but this needs a different touch and I don't think they have it in them, the new 'Zombies' variant cover proves this. Marvel is NOT a white knight coming to rescue, they saw the success of Anita and Sworn Sword and wanted them, so they took them. Nice. I chose not to be a part of this, it felt wrong. Jess will still be doing the writing adaption. I had offered my services for covers and stuff but as the new cover shows they REALLY don't like me right now. Oh, and Anita is supposed to have larger thighs, perhaps if you read the book you would know this as opposed to bitching about it. If you want little manga boys, you best try Japan, even the mangaesque artist in the states draw more regular looking thighs. As you can tell I'm in a bad mood today, don't know why. I might still be doing posters and T-shirts for Laurell, so that will be nice:)

I've started working on my new project, still can't say what it is, they want to do official anouncments and everything and that takes time. It will not be Backlash so stop asking. I have had NO contact with Wildstorm/DC Comics in years. Wildstorm just canceled Stormwatch... again, I doubt they'll bring back BL. I keep waiting for DC to just absorb WS but it hasn't happened happened yet.


EDIT: I've just found out that all the Marvel Zombie covers are supposed to be homages. This is fine....but you should still give credit to the original artist, it's just a nice courtesy.

That's all for now,

Brett

With Wildstorm becoming one of the 52 worlds in DC's multiverse it'll just be a matter of time.

I totally agree with you Brett.
And not just because you’re THE Brett Booth.
No.
But I can see that Marvel and DC are actually destroying the industry. They wanted Anita, they took Anita. And simply to boost the sales, they place her right beside the “zombies”.
I’m actually sick of this so I had to remove Anita from my pull list. To be totally honest, I was kind of disappointed when I saw the Marvel logo in the second issue of Guilty Pleasures)
Meeeh. What can I say? I love vampires, I love Brett’s art but I hate the big 2. (huge Image fun)

On the other topic (about WS and Stormwatch etc). The only thing I can say is that I support you for not doing anything for’em. Its always cool to see your lines in something new. So… be a good guy and give us anything. Anything at all will do for your new project. I know I asked for it before and I will ask for it again.

Until my eyes bleed.

But seriously, we would like to see some more art. (not actually from your new project).


Cheers for the post Brett.

Be safe and good luck with your Dogs.

The funny thing is Anita HAS zombies init already!!! No need to Marvelize it. Oh, well. Marvel is going to try to erase my contributions to the book.

Sorry I was told today it will be a few more weeks. Press releases are being done and everything. Jess is working on the first cover and I'm drawing pages (they have stuff on them and panels!) But the 'company' has plans they want to stick to.

I'll try to post some new art in the next day or so.

Thanks for the head's up Brett.

Be safe.
