Check out this great review of The Deathlings: Anne's Story #1, over on the Month of Indy Comics at Comics Should Be Good on Comic Book Resources.

I got home late last night after D&D and dinner with friends, to discover that the review had been posted over the weekend. I had sent them the book to review, but had no idea if it would be included-- or that they would say such nice things. It was definitely a great way to head onto a new week!

I hope this will mean some good exposure for the book, and the rest of the team. For my part, reviews like this are the only way I can validate that my writing isn't terrible. I have a real fear that people reading my stuff, especially this book-- the first comic script I ever wrote-- don't even think of it as a real comic. From the review, it sounds like I shouldn't worry so much.

Again, you can head here to check out the review! Feel free to leave some comments over there.

Please check out our main group!

So, a funny thing happened at New York Comic Con-- after accounting for comps for the artists, Kickstarter pre-orders, publisher drop-offs, and sending a few copies to Long Beach Comic Con... Well, we're basically out of comics.

The good news is that you can order both of our comics online now, direct from the printers! So until we have stock back in at the end of the year, I encourage you to pick up your copy of Black Label Comics #1 and The Deathlings: Anne's Story #1 at IndyPlanet.

Written by Ian Struckhoff with art by over 15 artists including cover by Jonathan Wyke and pinups by Amir Zand, Blair Shedd (Doctor Who), Nikki Cook (DMZ), and Daniel Govar (Azure). 52 color pages, $8.00


The Deathlings: Anne's Story #1

Anne's Story begins the day she dies.

Directionless after high school. Confused by strange dreams she can't quite remember. No idea what to wear when she's asked to a date at a bonfire. Then the guy who asked her isn't even there, and things start to get really weird. 28 color pages, $5.99
Sorry for the delay, but I finally have a chance to tell you all about how New York Comic Con 2010 went for me, for The Deathlings, and for Black Label Comics.

In short: It went well. Visit the BlackLabelComics group blog for the full update!

Some great news just came in, and I had to share it!

I hadn't even had a chance to announce that "The Deathlings: Anne's Story" #1 is available at IndyPlanet yet, and then I found out that it's their Pick of the Week right now!

Tony says, “The Deathlings: Anne’s Story contains a lot of elements I love in comics and stories in general.  I love the dark, gothic feeling from this book of hidden races,  secret wars and a main character who is attempting to understand her place in it all. The art is nicely rendered and only enhances the mood. Great stuff!”

If you didn't have a chance to pre-order via our Kickstarter, and you won't be at New York Comic Con, the best way to get the book will be right here.

It's a real honor, and I hope it's a sign of things to come! We always love hearing that someone loved our work.
