UK & German Appearances:
As I mentioned in a past post, I will be attending the London Super Comic Con as well as making at least one shop appearance in London (Forbidden Planet). I've had enough requests, that the image I did for the LSCC program guide (left) will also be available as a limited print at the convention and the store signing(s). My German publisher heard I was coming to Europe and kindly invited me to come to Berlin & Leipzig to promote the upcoming release of German edition of Legends of the Guard. The signing times and locations for the Germany trip are still being finalized, but will occur slightly after the London events. (I have also updated the list of all my 2012 appearances below)

The image to the right is a print image I made for the German signings. I kept in theme with the UK piece featuring a Guardmouse with heraldic animal imagery and the nation's flag. The Black eagle is a symbol of Germany, and I based the mouse's armor on designs of German Saxon armor. At this point, I do not intend to have copies of these prints available outside of these events and locations, though both images are slated to be in this year's sketchbook.

Winter 1152 Black & White Edition???
 This book is long overdue, and I have a small update on it. If you had ordered it ages ago when Archaia originally solicited it, you may be getting a notice from your local comic shop or online retailer that Archaia has canceled the order and the book. The orders have been canceled in part due to how old the solicitation was for them and that the book will need to be re-solicited to get current and accurate orders. The book is a tricky one to publish because of it's limited nature, it's costly overlay sheets, and it's larger size. We still have every intention to publish the book, IT has not been canceled, only the past orders. I will be talking to Archaia very soon and nailing down a new plan for release and try to get you all current information as soon as I can.

Fan Art:

Good to hear about the black and white edition! I was afraid that I had missed my chance for this great edition!

The black and white edition for Fall 1152 was a blast and is really nice to have!

Keep 'em coming!

And how is the next issue in the Black Axe series coming alon

Best Regards! /G

I've been hoping for a while that the b/w edition of Winter 1152 hadn't been cancelled, so it's good news there.

Out of interest, I presume the UK print will only be available at the UK show, and the German print will only be available at the German show?

How cool! So glad you liked the fan art - thanks for the post. And btw, those heraldic pieces are positively awesome!! Looking forward to the sketchbook.

Defiantly looking forward to the sketch book!

Guendolin: I'm still plugging away on issue 5.

Mayhem: We are printing the UK print ourselves, so I will have those at the UK show and will take remaining copies with me (to Germany, home, etc.) The German print is being handled by my German publisher. I will not have copies until I arrive in Germany after the UK leg of the trip. I assume I will only receive a few copies of the print myself for archiving purposes, and have no plans to sell that print (though like I said, BOTH images will be in this year's Sketchbook that we do offer online after SDCC)

Casey: Very glad you sent that piece to me! I think it's pretty great.
