Going, going…GONE!!

I’m heading out the door to Fan Expo Canada 2010 right about….now!

Look for me at P66A in Artists’ Alley, or at the Toronto Cartoonists Workshop booth #4009 (where I’ll be sigining tomorrow, 2-4pm). At 8pm I’ll be doing a mini-version of my Comic Book Bootcamp.

5…4…3…2…ONE!!! Holmes Incorporated on sale TOMORROW!

Over a hundred and twenty years in the making (if you count from the time “A STUDY IN SCARLET” was first published), and now down to 24 hours, the HOLMES INCORPORATED book is back from the printers, and ready to pass into the hands of the trembling-with-anticipation world.

Now, you can’t know your players without a scorecard, and we at Holmes Inc. headquarters are kind enough to provide one, because that’s the sort of caring individuals we are.

you might have to click on the image to make it large enough to read...

And here’s the last (BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST!!) teaser you’re going to get before the issue is released tomorrow… the first few panels from a delightful two-pager that caps off our 52 page 1st issue extravaganza.  We’ve been giving out two page previews for the other stories, but since our youngest creative genius, (twenty year old Pierce Desrochers-O’Sullivan) was creating a two page story, I can’t give it all out at once, can I?So there’s the first few panels to whet the appetite.   And if there isn’t some Shake’s Beer on sale in the real world soon, I’m causing a ruckus.  I LOVE that gag…

For those attending the FanExpo convention tomorrow and all weekend, you must promise not to mob these creators and tear at their clothes.  Yes, they’re about to become household words, like Jim Lee, or Jack Kirby, Paul McCartney or even Comet Cleanser, but they’re STILL HUMAN BEINGS!  Give them their dignity.

At this point, there’s so much Holmes stuff on this site, if you want to see more, just click on the category tag just below, where it says “HOLMES INC.” and you’ll be transported to a magical page where so much goodness can be had for the click of a mouse button, or an iphone punch, or whatever you kids are doing with your new fangled computo-machines.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now, your comic book moment of zen

T-Minus TWO DAYS and counting. Holmes is on the way!

We’re down to the wire.  I can see the wire over there, and it’s rushing up towards us at breakneck speed.  Holmes Incorporated is less than 72 hours from your hot little hands, and the air is electric with anticipation.

Today’s sensational story is written by Manly Mike Marano , penciled by the Amazing Alex Greychuck, and inked by Dapper Dean Dumont.   (Just one more day of the alliterative names, whew!)  While I love all the stories in this issue, this one holds a place in my heart as being the only tale to actually feature the original master detective, Sherlock himself.  But don’t worry, we ain’t wallowing in Victorian language and situations.  I’m fairly sure I recall some modern day machine gun-toting drug dealers show up later in the story.  But you’ll have to buy the issue to see all the gunfire.

An unsolved case?  So it wasn’t always so elementary, was it Watson?

Personally, I hope I never run into Mind-Spiders of Madagascar, but I’m a timid sort and faint easily.  For those who can survive that kind of heart stopping thrill, have we got a comic for YOU!

Here’s yesterday’s entry.  Go HERE for more previews.  Go HERE for a large image of the cover!  Here for more pages!  Here for even MORE pages! and HERE for more preview art again.  With 52 big pages to fill, we’ve got tons of stories to tell, and the game is afoot in every darn one!   See you at the convention this weekend, you lucky comic fans!

Ty the Guy OUT!

In honor of the mind-spiders, here now, your comic book moment of zen:
