More Gunplay news

Dominic's comic, Gunplay, is still scheduled to come out this March, and today on CBR I found an article about a writer named Christopher Priest who is doing some dime-store novel stuff as a back-up feature for their book. Apparently this guy used to be a popular writer for stuff like Quantum & Woody, but fell out of comics for a bit.

He has some kind stuff to say about Dominic's art and Vega's story. BONUS: new sample pages from the book!

(I checked out Priest's site, and apparently he's a pastor (ironic moniker!). On his beliefs page, however, I'm still trying to figure out whether he believes in the Judeo-Christian God or not. He uses some squishy language that smacks of Spong's "God is merely a concept within ourselves" garbage, but then he affirms the Scriptures as being the Word of God, and that Jesus Christ is God's Son, so I'm confused.)

Wait, are you guys going to Wizard World? Isn't that in Chicago?

Or did you mean the San Diego Comic Con?

Hey, guys. Dom's gonna be all over the place in the next few months. We're gonna be doing all the Wizard Worlds-- Los Angeles, Philly, Chicago and Texas --as well as the NY Comic Con in April and the madness that is the San Diego Comic Con in July.

He's gonna be living like a rockstar and, basically, I get to be his road manager-- riding his coat tails and cleaning up whatever vomit and/or excrement he leaves in his hotel rooms. :)

Cool! See you guys at San Diego, then!
