The long strange trip I took in May of 2011, from the beginning of one day to the next - Twenty Four hours straight - paintbrush and pens in hand all the while.

New York Comic-Con 2011 has come and gone (and there's video a-comin', trust me), and the focus now shifts to next year's SoulExo project, entitled Wandering Star. While I don't want to give away too much, the early details are that it'll be another full color comic, again starring Mourning, that picks up (in a round about way) where Children of Light left off, and it will take place quite early in the timeline of our SoulExo protagonists, with a few very, very big pieces of the overall puzzle being filled in.

This will also be a huge collaborative effort, as opposed to the one man show that was Children of Light, with virtually every previous collaborator I've ever had doing a portion of the comic. Call it an Epic Team family reunion, of sorts. In addition, there will be new short webcomics that will tie into the events of the upcoming comic, that you'll only see here!

Check both here and on the Facebook site for updates, sketches, and all kinds of in-progress goodness.

HELLO, and A huge THANK YOU to everyone I met at New York Comic Con who may be visiting the site for the first time. I had a blast and am very excitied about having some brand new people introduced to SoulExodus for the first time. I have some great and interesting things lined up, including new webcomics, new videos, new art, and upcoming news about the next big SoulExo project in the works. In the meantime, keep in touch, and enjoy the site - my house is your house!

05.26.2010 - SoulExodus Invades the state of New Jersey!

Because I can never *really* take a vacation without, y'know, working, My recent short trip to New Jersey saw me pay visit to three different retailers in the North Jersey Costal area, all of which were good enough to agree to put copies of SoulExodus volumes one and two (three is still, regrettably, not yet available, but will be very soon) on their shelves as of this week. A huge thank you to Comics Plus in Oakhurst, Amazing Stories in Shrewsbury, and (visited completely on a whim) Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, located in Red Bank, and featured in the Kevin Smith movies Chasing Amy and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. If any SoulExodus fans are (or will be) in the Monmouth County, NJ area, pay them a visit.

More good things to come!

It's official...

I know, It's been a while, but I actually wanted to wait until I had a significant amount of new info to report - so here it is: SoulExodus Volume 3: Thunder Road was completed and sent to print on Friday, April 16th, after a fifteen month stretch of production (and I mean, to the wire, because the envelope was off to Jersey literally within 12 hours of my final edits). Volume Three will be a 150-plus page graphic novel, with a goregous painted cover by Dina Brodsky, a contribution by Reed Hill (one of my favorite things he's done for me), and, as always, some awesome prose by SKIP (who I'll also be working with on some other interesting new stuff very soon). There's also some more digital experimentation, but I don't want to give too much away about that. The book will be on sale before summer, and in plenty of time for New York Comic-Con 2010, which Epic Team Productions will once again have a table at. Good things are coming!

BUT WAIT!

This summer will also see several new website updates, including a double splash page timelapse breakdown, videos, and no less than THREE new webcomics: The much delayed Solitary, detailing Neph's time in prison, part two of She & I, and The Last (pictured above) which ties Directly into SoulExodus Volume Three.

 

(Disclaimer: The video says 2008. Force of habit. This footage is from Saturday, February 7th, 2009.)

New York Comic-Con has come and gone, and SoulExodus has once again made it's impact. From free swag to scantily clad female painters (as evidenced by the above video), it was an awesome time. This year, the focus was on the debut of Live to Make Tomorrow, our 32 page SoulExo web comic compilation. To anyone who was able to attend, talk with us, and purchase a copy of any of the three SoulExo books, thank you, and I hope you enjoy and continue reading. For anyone else interested in reading, please contact me at BJC@soulexo.com anytime to buy. Deals are available for orders of multiple copies and volumes.

Shout out also goes to QPTV's Sci-Fi Ninja Theater, who've made available our interview with them for the 2008 New York Comic-Con. We'll have footage of it on our site shortly, and we've linked their website in the meantime. Thanks to Vincent Vlado and all others involved.

Thanks
