  1. Yep, box office figures DO include Canadian theatres. Our release dates parallel with yours. I remember back in November 1999 either Variety or The Hollywood Reporter remarked that the newly opened Paramount Cinema in Montreal had pulled the largest box office receipts on the continent due to Sleepy Hollow and Tomorrow Never Dies being out at the same time. There's very few Canadian owned or originated theatre chains left so they all report back to the same corporate masters in the US. -Jay
  2. I'd say they'll get this out as soon as possible. Probably look for a late March / early April release.
  3. Jimmy is a machine. Prolific and talented. I miss the days of Joe Q and him jamming on pages together. Very down to earth. I was pretty blown away last year when he left a comment on one of my MySpace blogs.
  4. Oh Christ where to start? On Friday night my buddy came to pick me up in a red El Camino. We were going to see PWZ with the "right" frame of mind. I had a bottle of Jack D's tucked in my pocket. Ordered a coke at the concession. The movie started. I almost walked out after the opening scene but I was already in for 17 bucks between the ticket and the pop. Hanging upside down from a chandelier? Really? Surely they all saw Boondock Saints. The boys accidentally falling out of the ceiling in tandem and shooting up the room. That was supposed to be over the top balls out insane. It w
  5. Conventions are a tricky proposition for us. Not only are we up in Canada, but Rich and I live 3000 miles apart. It's not worth the thousands that it would cost us to do the larger shows unless we had a lot of merch with us. We're working on sorting out all of these issues but as you can imagine post 9-11, the borders are a bitch. We were hoping to use a merchandiser in Cleveland that could simply drop ship packages to wherever in the States. They are a fullfilment service that ships t-shirts all over the country for touring bands to pick up on the road when they run out. But they're
  6. No bad blood whatsoever. If I make it below the border to San Diego this year, I'll look you up.
  7. I think maybe we should revisit all of this later in February on a new thread in the "Show Your Wares" section. I'd be happy to throw up a new page then and let everyone have at it. I've got a thick skin. Everyone on these boards are obviously into dark genre art and film so this place presents a unique opportunity to have passionate people offer up insight. I think the written word can read a lot more brutally than in-person contact so I try an read with "soft eyes" (that sounds creepy). If we were at a bar, we'd all be drinking and laughing together. At least that's what this Can
  8. Oh hey, I went to check out Destroy Dystopia, and I could only get one page to display. What the heck am I doing wrong over there?? Njc----------------------- Sorry about that, all of our webcomics have different functions. If you go to HERE, that'll bring you to the first page. All you have to do now is click on the page itself to bring you to the next one. He has quite a few posted. -Jay
  9. I'd start off with Destroy Dystopia which is by one of our German buds Christian. It's in English though. He got some coloring work from IDW (Snaked) based on his online stuff. He has over 50 pages online and it's a cool little apocalyptic cyberpunk tale. There's not a lot of strong dark genre serialized work out there yet, but now that DC, Marvel, Dark Horse and Top Cow all have online initiatives, the rest of the print world is slowly moving online. Whilel I and my generation prefer to read printed matter, there's a whole generation growing up that's completely comfortable readi
  10. Well hot damn, at least everyone is being honest around here and not hiding behind aliases and that's what I respect the most. From reading Jim's comments, I'm not sure if he was critiquing individual pages posted or if he actually read the first 24 pages of my webcomic so I'm a little confused there. Our myspace page isn't a portfolio gallery hoping to attract publishers, it's a full blown webcomic portal that compliments our webcomicsnation page. As far as building up an audience we have the largest comics page on myspace. That happened by accident. My comic has gotten 135,000 pagevi
  11. Hi Jim, After the initial shock wore off the other night of reading your message and our further private messages to each other I'm comfortable with your criticisms. Meaning that I agree that there is a lot of room for me to grow both as an artist and a storyteller. Heck we're all still in our 20's and 30's on this board. Hopefully we all have decades of learning and improving ahead of us. We have a moral obligation to our fans and readers to constantly improve. I consider Frank Miller the Miles Davis of comics, having changed is style, for better or worse, several times over th
  12. Wow I'm glad I joined up on this board. Hi Noeland. All I can say is that I've been having a lot of fun on my comic and I hope to pick up the pace tenfold on the productivity front. There hasn't been a lot of dialogue spoken in the comic yet. It's mainly been captions layered over illustrations . Perhaps like narration over a segment in a Scorcese film that brings you up to speed. Or maybe not. It doesn't always work for me but I'm playing around with techniques. I hope you guys like whats coming down the line at the end of the month. Let's see how I do with a conversa
  13. I don't think you have any reason to feel like a dumbshit sir. You simply posted that you dug our stuff in an "Artists We Love" thread and we're extremely flattered. If this conversation was taking place in an "Artists We LOATHE" thread I think I'd be more concerned. We love all of you who take the time to show us appreciation. Especially in a public forum. An artist's fans are the ones that truly matter to him/her. Anything else is just an opinion. At least coming from Jim Daly, it's an informed opinion with merit. Tim has taken his share of BS over the years as well, but we
  14. I finally got to meet Tim Vigil at 2007's Emerald City Con in Seattle. And I grabbed an issue of Faust 13 for my buddy Rich. I leafed through a pile of his originals. The man is a skilled master to be sure. Such elegant ink strokes. My friend was writing her master's thesis on art and censorship a few years ago. I loaned her the first 12 issues of Faust. I'm glad we're still friends.
  15. I was always a huge fan of Nick Manabat. I was an avid reader of comics during Image Year One and was blown away by the amount of detail Nick could cram into a panel. Filipino artists have had a proud history in American comics for decades. -Jay
