Anonymous asked: Any new stuff being announced at NYCC? And does Red Sonja/Conan have a release date, or is it a early 2015 type thing? (Can't wait for that.)

No new projects being announced at NYCC. I’m currently juggling six different comic projects:

Wayward, Skullkickers, Samurai Jack, Dungeons & Dragons, Conan-Red Sonja, and some Marvel stuff still percolating and that’s more than enough for now.

It’s been a great year and my fingers are crossed for 2015.

I believe Conan-Red Sonja launches in January or February. It’ll be here before you know it.

brain-too-small asked: Just finished Figment. Great ride man. Since I picked it up digitally, I plan on double dipping and getting the collection when it comes out. Hope you got more Marvel stuff coming up! (Also, really liking Wayward and I'm pumped for Baldurs Gate!)

Thanks for the support! Greatly appreciated. Working on Figment was a real joy.

Marvel-wise I’m writing some tie-in comics for the cartoons that should be announced soon and I have a pitch in for another possible project in 2015. Fingers crossed.

Anonymous asked: What software do you use for your scripts?

Just Microsoft Word with a template for script formatting. You can find it here: http://www.jimzub.com/rambling-about-how-i-write-comics-part-four/

I know there are fancy script programs out there, but with Word I know that all my clients will be able to open and read whatever I put together without any hassles.

Hard to believe it’s finally here: Wayward #1 arrives in comic shops today.
For the past 10 months, Steve and I have been developing this creator-owned series and it’s an incredible feeling to finally see it out in the world. We hope you read it, enjoy it, and tell others all about it.
Projects like this are not just one person and although it’s common for me to say “my new creator-owned book” that’s not accurate. Beyond the fact that Steve and I are co-creators on this, there are quite a number of people I need to thank for their involvement and support.
Steve Cummings, thank you for working alongside me to develop this story and drawing your heart out. Your incredible dedication shows on every page.John Rauch, thank you for enhancing Steve’s pages with incredible color and atmosphere.Marshall Dillon, thank you for always sticking with me and doing more proofs on this issue than any other project we’ve worked on together. You tirelessly made lettering edits right up until we went to press.Zack Davisson, thank you for your Japanese mythology consultation and wonderful essay back matter material.
Our variant cover artists: Alina Urusov, Jeff “Chamba” Cruz, Adam Warren, Tamra Bonvillain, Ross A. Campbell, Erik Larsen, Chip Zdarsky, and Kalman Andrasofszky. Thank you for creating eye-popping artwork to help grab attention, near and far.
Eric Stephenson, Ron Richards, Kat Salazar, Meredith Wallace, Addison Duke, Jonathon Chan, Branwyn Bigglestone and everyone else at the Image Comics office. Thank you for your support and your role as a creator-owned publisher that truly empowers creators to make the books they’ve always dreamed of.
Thank you also to:Charles Soule, for your invaluable advice and support.Nishi Makoto, for Japanese language/lettering help.Chris Butcher and the Beguiling, for arranging the Wayward launch party (happening tonight!).Brandon Seifert, for introducing me to Zack.
Thank you to the many retailers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to support Wayward, including Happy Harbor Comics, Strange Adventures, Third Eye Comics, and the Phantom retail group.
Last but not least, thank you to my family and friends. Thank you for listening, sharing, understanding, and patiently accepting stressful days and neurotic nights as we built momentum to get this out the door. None of this would be possible without your love.
We’ve set up a fan email address where you can let us know what you think of Wayward (and we’re compiling the letters page for issue #2 this week, so please send us messages ASAP). Email waywardpostage@gmail.com and include “OK To Print” with your message if you’re okay with us possibly including your letter in a future issue.

Wayward Launch Party, Wed in Toronto!

WaywardLaunchParty

On Wednesday WAYWARD #1 arrives at comic shops everywhere and Wednesday night we’re throwing an official launch party here in Toronto!

WAYWARD LAUNCH PARTY
WED AUGUST 27th
at GUU SAKABAR
559 Bloor Street West, Toronto
6-8pm (presentation at 7pm)

I’ll be there along with cover artists Alina Urusov, Adam Warren, Kalman Andrasofszky, and Chip Zdarsky. It will probably be the only place where you’ll be able to pick up every variant cover for the first issue (along with a super rare Japanese language doujinshi version and a special cover postcard set) and get them signed at the same time.

Guu Sakabar is an award-winning Japanese izakaya with fantastic food and drink. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in the city and I’m absolutely thrilled to be celebrating the launch there with my dear friends from The Beguiling.
