Page 1 – Bearmageddon Lives!
Update: Hello there! If you are new to Bearmageddon, this is the first page of the book almost five years in the making (and that’s just volume 1). Since completing Volume 1 I have converted the web comic into a free online 66 page preview. After reading the preview you will come to a page that invites you to purchase the book. As of 2/23/2016 only digital formats are available, but a print edition should be available by April 2016 as well. Please enjoy the free preview and I thank you for visiting my web site.
ORIGINAL BLOG from August 1, 2011
Bearmageddon is here!! I’m excited to finally present to you a project I started over two years ago, prior to becoming “the Axe Cop Guy”. I have been pretty busy with Axe Cop but it has been heavy on my heart to get myself working on something besides Axe Cop because I needed a project that was all my own, and I needed a project that did not require Malachai’s input to move forward. I also love to write, but need practice. I am practicing on you. Thanks for being a lab rat.
The first thing I want to say, especially if you are coming to this comic as an Axe Cop fan, is that you should throw all your Axe Cop related expectations out the window and start fresh. This project is different from Axe Cop in almost every way. Axe Cop is a very unique and special project in its own right, but to compare this project to Axe Cop is comparing apples and oranges. What happened with Axe Cop was something no one could have seen coming, and whatever audience has come over from that project to give this one a chance I am grateful for, but this project has to stand on its own and earn its own audience just like any new project does.
I will be posting new pages every Wednesday and Friday. I wish I could update more, but it is all I can handle right now because I am also trying to post 2-3 pages of Axe Cop per week and I have other projects coming down the pipeline as well including another print-only Axe Cop miniseries. Please “bear” with me as the site comes together. There is a lot of work yet to be done on it, and please let us know if you run into any issues. You can email info(at)bearmageddon.com and the message will go right to me.
Please pay your respects to my awesome colorist, Noah Maas. He is doing some awesome work. I never thought this project would be in color, but it is exciting to see the pages all colored up like they are. Noah is nailing it and I love every page he sends in.
I also want to thank Jordan Kotzebue for coloring the banner you see at the top of this page. I did some minor work on it but the bulk of the color you see up there was done by this talented man. Please check out his web comic Hominids. Both Noah and Jordan work at Pop Cap Games, the geniuses who made Plants VS. Zombies.
Well, I’ll leave you with that for now. I have a lot to do. Page two goes up Friday. Thanks so much for checking out Bearmageddon, and please spread the word!
