Blackguard #1 Update IV

Only nine days until the deadline for contributions to Blackguard #1. How thrilling! Are you reminded of Europe's 'The Final Countdown'? I am.
Anyway, I have some good news to report...

First of all, Anton Emdin sent me his cover art for our first issue and boy does it look good - the word "good" being somewhat of a colossal understatement. It's so freaking awesome that my immediate impulse was to post it up here, but wiser minds convinced me that it was probably best to save it until the whole issue is finished and printed. For now I'll just say that it will set a pretty damn high standard for subsequent covers.

Also in the past week, Hugo sent me his contribution and he's posted a preview panel on his LJ here (see 20 August post). While you're there you can inspect other fine samples of his comix art, which is so great it's almost beyond belief!

The other big and super awesome news of the past week is that Mr Neale Blanden got back to me and assured me that he's got something cooking for Blackguard #1. If you asked me to recommend ONE Australian comics dude's stuff you should check out before you die, or were heading off to that desert island you hear about, and could only take one Aussie comix dude's stuff with you, Blanden would be the one, no contest.

And what an excellent opportunity to post the second in my series of 'Best of Sick Puppy'! So here's Neale's 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' from Sick Puppy Comix #5...
