New Urban Fantasy comic up at Zuda Comics

Hello all. I had some news I wanted to share in the November newsletter, but due to the timing (we couldn't announce it anywhere 'til 11/2), I couldn't share my news there. If it's okay with everyone, I'd love to share it here, especially for people interested in new ways of publishing and how editors deal with slush.

First, the big news: a comic I created with artist Niki Smith, “In Maps and Legends,” is live on the Zuda Comics site!

Zuda is the online comics line from DC Comics, the same folks who brought us Batman, Superman, the Sandman, Justice League, Wonder Woman, and countless other amazing characters and stories.

Zuda offers an interesting twist on how comics are chosen to be published.



Sort of like “American Idol,” readers get to choose their favorite. So over the course of November, anyone can read “In Maps and Legends” and VOTE. Right now we're at #1, which I think is quite awesome for an urban fantasy story with a strong female protagonist like ours.

Just log into the site after you create a user ID, read all ten comics (we have some amazing competition), and click the VOTE button for just one comic — the one you think is the best.

Hope you click over and read the opening pages, because if you read to page 8 of our comic, we totally leave you with one doozy of a cliffhanger!

Here’s a quick tutorial on voting at the Zuda site (the site’s a little daunting the first few times you visit). And here's a fun behind-the-scenes look at how we created the opening page of the comic.

Thanks!

Michael Jasper (and artist Niki Smith)

Thanks, Dawn! We had to fight off a surging comic in second place, but we remained #1 so far in November.

Is the month over yet??? I can't handle the stress. :)

I just wanna tell the next part of the story.
