BRIK JONES: ATTORNEY FOR EARTH #1 – cover color test

Brik Jones, Shakey R. Johnson

BRIK001COVA(RGB)_Cafaro_Shakey

It’s been a while since I posted. Here is a quick update. Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth issue #4 is 30% illustrated. Right now I’m getting some of the larger story arcs ready and set up as well as some other details squared away. I’m also getting a pitch package together for Diamond Comic Book Distributors. Part of the pitch will include issue #1 in full color. I colored one other book which was Pilot Season: Anonymous #1 from Top Cow. I was on the fence about whether to color Brik in a hard edge style or painterly-(ish) style. I am going for a hybrid. See the color sample from the cover to issue #1 above. The snapshot is of Legal aide and Starship mechanic SHAKEY R. JOHNSON. Want to find out more about him read the ashcan preview edition you can read on this website. Line art above by GIUSEPPE CAFARO who will be illustrating the first 5 issues (and hopefully more!).

More regular updates, and potential website re-vamp, forthcoming!

Long Beach Comic-Con 2012 Day 1

Hi Everybody!

Day 1 of Long Beach Comic-Con was a blast. Thanks to Elena Salecedo and Matt Hawkins I got to crash the booth at Top Cow and set up a Fighting Lion Comics outpost at the signing table at booth #207. Come check me out! Got a chance to talk to some friends and talk about some potential future works. The Ashcan preview for Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth™ is selling very well!

I like to take pictures of cosplayers and pick a theme for each show. This year it is Star Wars cosplay! Take a look at this gallery and enjoy!

May the Force be with you…Always.

BRIK JONES: ATTORNEY FOR EARTH™ launched at Stan Lee’s Comikaze

Brik Jones, Ashcan cover

Cover for BRIK JONES: ATTORNEY FOR EARTH “The Case of Case number 69″ cover

 

So after our first day at Stan Lee’s Comikaze we have had a great reaction to the Ashcan Edition of Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth, “The Case for Case number 69.” The pitch as people careen madly through the aisles is this:

“Brik Jones is the story of a selfish Attorney who through a weird twist of fate must represent the Earth to the interstellar community. He is saving us from the Alien invasion…one case at a time. The easiest way to wrap you head around it is its: “Liar Liar” meets “Galaxy Quest.”

Everyone seems to get a laugh out of that then proceeds to give the book a read. Extra copies will be available on this website in a about a week when the store goes live. In the meantime enjoy!
