Actually, that's damning Kris with faint praise
THE ROAD TO HELL is a romantic comedy I co-wrote with Matt Wayne, who despite persistent rumors, is neither African-American, or related to DC Comics Marketing VP Bob Wayne (but wouldnít it be cool if he were both?). A few weeks back, I told you about how we lost our first two artists on the project and mentioned that I was about to ask yet another artist to come on board our ship of fools for very little money and even less glory. Unaccountably, she said yes. Iím taking this opportunity to introduce to you THE ROAD TO HELLís severely overtalented new artist, Kris Dresen. If you donít know her, or her beautiful work on MAX AND LILY and MANYA, shame on you. But if you zip right over to her site at GirlThrow.com and buy at least one copy of everything, Iíll forgive you. Iíll wait here until you get back.
Okay, while youíre standing next to the mailbox waiting for all those books you ordered to arrive, Iíll fill you in on our projectís status. The full script for the book is completed and as soon as Kris finishes work on the graphic novel she wrote and is currently drawing, sheíll be getting started on ROAD TO HELL. There was some talk of trying to do this book as a mini-series at Image but unfortunately they passed. Thatís okay. I still intend to do something over there one of these days and when I do, Iíll bore you with news about it. Meanwhile plans for ROAD TO HELL have gone back to our original vision for the project, a massive, 130-plus page, complete in one volume, graphic novel. More on this as it develops.
That was the February 2nd, 2002 column.
The preview art was posted April 12, 2003.
The book is noted as a work in progress at GirlThrow.
In the meantime, think I saw one or two of the issues of Demon that Dwaye wrote. . . man, two presidential elections ago, at this point? Anyway, saw 'em cheap at a local shop. The storyline was hilarious. Again, I offer to snag 'em if anyone wants 'em.
Good thing I never posted any photos of myself here, and there are none available anywhere else.
Except the ancient one at the bottom of my old home page (last updated November 1, 2000, baby), with me meeting Stone Cold Steve Austin at Mall of America while wearing a Nancy Sinatra Fan Club t-shirt.
I think I was doing better drugs up there.
Actually, looking at some of it, especially the excerpts from America Rules, Dwayne should think about suing the Bush administration for ripping off his -- er, Etrigan's -- ideas for reviving the economy.
