Work in progress as publisher, editor, designer, and all ‘round swell guy Michael DeVito (th3rdworldstudios) guides our first issue through pre-press!
Lettering first, followed by some proofreading, on-the-page dialogue edits, and final approvals. This is where the idea of a comic becomes a real thing, and it’s probably one of the most exciting parts of the process!(!!!)
After this it goes out to sites for advance reviews, to fellow creators for endorsements, to retailers so they know what they’re ordering, and, of course, to the printer once we’re solicited for our November release and we know how many copies we need to print.
Oh, and the second issue? Halfway done on the art. Expect that to be wrapped by the end of the month, give or take. By the time the first issue hits stores we’ll be finishing up the first arc, which means we can relax (just a little) before we hit the next volume.
