Happy Wannabe Wednesday!
Wannabe Heroes is now on Comixology, so click the link below to get the first issue digitally!
Comixology did a wonderful job with the guided view and it makes the comic even more exciting to read! If you get a chance to download it, please rate it and/or let us know what you think!
Thanks so much.
Many moons ago, four thousand forty-five moons to be more specific, I wrote the following two poems. During this time I was entrenched in H.P. Lovecraft’s work and I think it shows… too much. I figured for my own #Throwback Thursday, I’d force myself to share these poems so everyone can see that I wasn’t always this bad, there was a time when I was worse.
*Interestingly enough, the first of the two turned out to be my first official published piece as it was picked up in a national horror magazine.
Like a old tome burned
for fear that its proven authenticity
would shake and shatter the very foundation
of the beliefs that man bases his entire
the spectacular visions and fantasies
I held so dear in my youth
have been scorched to ashes by science’s
irrepressible need to fling light into every
dark corner of our universe.
As this reckless quest for explanation
continues, I am left awe struck with
the dim thought that soon their heedless
and clumsy search for substance
long forgotten doors which upon their opening
shall unleash a wave of unfathomable
terror that will wash away this tranquil
isle of ignorance into the black seas
of the unknown.
The Quest Continues…
This world is not your old trunk
in the attic, waiting for you to force open
its lid and plunder through
you almost forgot you had.
It is more like a room full of dark closets
in which you cannot flick on
a man-made switch to send light sprawling
because maybe the bulbs are blown, or
maybe there is no light meant to shine in them.
But this won’t stop you
because you are an oak and a hell of a lot wiser
than Socrates, who knew nothing.
So you’ll stumble into the closets,
feel your way around, and eventually,
After banging your knee hard on hidden obstacles,
your hand will befall a key to a door
that was never intended to be opened,
then your trivial crusade of curiosity will bring
curtains for the modern tragedy of the human race.
So our Wannabe Heroes Kickstarter is only 10 days away from being over and we NEED YOUR HELP! Head on over and pledge your support if you want or take a minute to download this Ninja Bear Coloring page and color it like there’s no tomorrow!
You may be wondering… ‘why should I color Ninja Bear?’
First of all, coloring is fun. It’s nearly impossible not to smile while coloring. As if that’s not enough, we are going to pick our favorite colored Ninja Bear and print it in the back of the Wannabe Heroes comic book!! (giving credit to the colorist, of course!)
This contest is for all ages, but you will be judged based on your age. (I know, I know…age discrimination, but please don’t sue us!)
The deets: Once you have downloaded and colored your Ninja Bear (you can color by hand or digitally), simply email the digital file to us via the Wannabe Heroes Email! If you live close by, you can also drop off your colored pieces with me at Arena Comics on Free Comic Book Day which is May the 4th (Que Star Wars jokes here). You don’t have to support our Kickstarter to be eligible for the contest, but it’d be a lot cooler if you did, man.
DEADLINE: Sunset on May 6th, 2013! Click here to download file.
Hey guys and gals,
We’ve finally started a Kickstarter and it’s located here…
Check it out, Shout it out to your friends or Support it!
Any one of those is cool, All three is divine!
Thanks so much.
If you’re like me, you may be wondering, “What gives? Why no new content on the website for awhile…?!” Well, sorry about that. We’ve been working pretty hard to revamp the characters and turn Wannabe Heroes into a full fledged comic book and good news, we have a 4-issue limited series already in the works!
You may have seen us showing off a promo for the new comic at the Baltimore Comic Con and we have decided to start a kickstarter to help fund the first 4 issues of the comic (with loads of other goodies) in March. Please don’t completely give up on me as I really love drawing comics and these characters especially and I will do them justice when time permits. Take Care!
