Busy, Busy, Busy

It's been a month since my last post. Why, you ask? Well, three things:
The Devil's Candy Store and the San Diego Comic-Con 2008
WildClaw Theatre's second season promotion
• The First Fear

There will soon be a new website for The Devil's Candy Store as we venture into the selling of exotic contraband from impossible worlds. We are working with author, LA Banks, and using her Vampire Huntress novel series as our first impossible world. Tony Swatton of Sword and Stone building the vampire killing sword, Madame Isis, and its sister dagger, both to be displayed in San Diego this July. We'll be auctioning off the one of the kind hero sword and you can pre-order the dagger.

Craig Elliott, a Devil's Candy Store artist, is designing some Vampire Huntress based jewelry for the show and will be one the concept artists contributing to our limited edition book featuring characters, Damali Richards and Carlos Rivera of the Vampire Huntress series. Other artists planning to be in the book are:
Dave Dorman
Craig Elliott
Tom Baxa
Peter Bergting
Cyril Van Der Haegen
John VanFleet
Eric Battle
Alex Wald
Ray Frenden
• and me

A new website is in the making for WildClaw Theatre as we gear up for our next set of productions and a couple of benefits. The first benefit will be June 22nd at The Four Moon Tavern. Stay tuned for the Pagan details.

And lastly, I had an excellent story consultation with Charley Sherman on my comic book (and possible play), The First Fear. The story is finally coming together into a solid narrative. Yeah, baby!

Hmm... story consult specifics... I can tell you that Charley read my prologue, which is my take on Theseus, Ariadne and the Minotaur in his Labyrinth and in 3 pages genuinely surprised him with some unexpected twists.

We spent a couple of hours discussing the plot details and BIG ideas that I have been working on and he was pleased with the directions it's taking. It is essentially a story about fear, from the ordinary and personal to civilization extinctions.

Right now the story travels from Greece to Peru to the Arctic to Iran in place and in time. One of Charley's big concerns was the juxtaposition of classical Greek mythology with U.S. grunts on the ground in the Middle East. But we both think there is something entertaining there and worth completing. Time for more narrative, dialog and drawings!

Any chance we can get together some time at ComiCon? I'll be working with Studio Foglio at booth 1331.
