Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! It's been a while since I've posted, but I promise, it's been because of other productive activities...and this time it's even comic related! What a shock.
Quick, think of something that gets bigger and bigger every day! Well, yes, "your mom" is an acceptable answer. But also FUBAR, the comic that keeps on coming. The success of this book continues to amaze, and it's something I'm proud to be a part of. After this year's Empire of the Rising Dead graphic novel and the well received Summer Special, things have really been picking up steam to the point where 2013 is shaping up to be a banner year.
Above, you'll see the cover to the aptly named FUBAR: Winter Special, due out in January and in the "monthly" format that we all know and love so well. Adorned by another beautifully rendered cover by Pietro, the Winter Special features stories by Chuck Dixon, Jeff McComsey, Steve Becker, and me. And a few other people. It's gonna be great.
The FUBAR: American History Z Kickstarter campaign has been an unqualified success that I don't think anyone could have predicted. With nearly two weeks left to go, the book has raised more than double of its fundraising goal and has just passed the $13,000 mark. Who knows where it'll end, but it was certainly helped along when it was showcased on the very front page of Kickstarter as a staff pick, as you can see in the screenshot above.
Reaching seemingly unattainable goals means the unlocking of pretty decent "stretch" rewards, and FUBAR does its best to impress with the announcement of a brand new one-shot title: FUBAR: By the Sword, a medieval anthology that's in its very infancy, but already has a beautiful cover by Steve Becker:
This book further expands the FUBAR universe and will keep us all busy well into next year. I'm already thinking of potential story ideas, and I'm doing my best to try and not let Games of Thrones influence me too much.
These things all add up to an exciting year ahead, but there's even more to come, and dare I say the most exciting news of all is still to come. In the next few weeks, there'll be an extra special announcement from the ranks of FUBAR Central Command that'll really blow the doors off their hinges. It's definitely something to keep an eye out for.
Blogger is now telling me that I've reached my quote on pictures for this blog. To which I can only have one realistic reaction: PANIC! I had no idea that there was a limit on the amount of images one could upload to a Blogger account, but apparently there is, that number is 1GB, and I've reached it. What to do? What to do indeed. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
