Your wait is over! The new chapter of LULU is all drawn now, and the greys are in progress. I will be releasing the pages via Patreon as they're done--not necessarily on a weekly basis like at MartianLit, but each, like this, will be free for a week after release. More details there. Click on panel to read the first page now!
By the way, I posted quite a lot--well, all--of this in progress as I was going, though I haven't bothered to post that here. So if you're interested, all the posts with the "In Progress" tag. Free except the final inked/lettered ones, before the greys, which are patron-only. But you can see all the stages till the lettering is on it, from pencils to inks. Of course, to unlock every one of those (and a lot more) only takes a $1 pledge...
You make more pages. No matter what you lose, no matter who comes and goes. You make more pages. No matter how long it takes you, steadily every day. You make more pages. Even if nobody cares. Even if nobody bothers to read any of it. Even if none of it seems to matter. You make more pages. Because if there are no pages, it never will matter, either.

I AM SICK OF TIME TRAVEL, TIMELINES, AND PARALLEL WORLDS IN POPULAR FICTION AND DRAMA. Sick to fucking death of it. It ate mainstream comics and trapped both Marvel and DC in a cycle that will never end, and has made its way into TV too. Twin Peaks, the Flash, more. Why are we attracted to this idea? Read more »
I'm gonna get blasphemous here. I call shenanigans on the resolution to the new TWIN PEAKS. I love Lynch. I am used to Lynch. I am used to abstruse and like it. And if everything had been properly resolved I guess it wouldn't feel like Lynch so there's really no way to win. But do NOT respond to this with a "you just don't get Lynch"--oh yes I fucking do. He's a foundation stone of inspiration for my own work. Nor say "you must be used to Hollywood plotting"--I fucking hate Hollywood plotting. I avoid most mainstream product. I have watched Lynch since I was 12 and the Elephant Man came out. I'm in the cult, of the cult. But.
LULU Sketch à la Stefania Casini Preparation for the next chapter. A practice sketch of Lulu; friend of the project Stefania Casini (below sketch, from Blood for Dracula), model. Looking at it now, I think I need to do more work on the neck. Catch up with Chapter 4 in THIS SICKNESS #8, now available at Amazon, Comixology & Google Play.
I was born in South Carolina, and raised in Charleston. At least one of my ancestors (Col. Roger Moore, and yes, I've heard all the Bond jokes) owned a plantation and slaves, and was a colonel in the Civil War.
And these things make him a bastard. Who lost as well, thank god.
The only people in the South who are into this "heritage" thing are rednecks. The same people who didn't own slaves and died for the planters, and to this day are poor because of the descendants of the planters, who are still there.
I thought McCain was a bastard to let the vote go forward. But he did say at the time he would not vote in favor of it just the same, and Murkowski and Collins were already known to be firmly against this. Of course they could not resist going straight for it and getting drunk with potential blood, because they don't just want the tax cut; they don't just want to get rid of an entitlement, or just Obama's legacy.
The man who brought you zombies has died and, ironically, rests in peace.
But there was a lot more to his work. Here for instance is what I consider his greatest film, MARTIN. About a fellow who thinks he's a vampire. Is he? Well, the question becomes, does it matter in the end? This is a film where he questions the horror genre itself. Have a look.
"Eternity with Beelzebub, and all his hellish instruments of death, will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me and this pencil." - E. Blackadder, 1791 Questionable
