The SAYER Prequel Comic; the best idea we’ve ever had.
On June 23rd, we rolled out our next pair of milestones. In tandem these two milestones will enable us to fund a dream project: a SAYER prequel digital comic book.
While we’re not ready to reveal any information about the storyline of the comic, we’re hugely excited to announce who we’ll be working with in order to make it a reality. Jim Lawson is an artist and writer whose work I grew up reading. Over his years at Mirage working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles he developed an outstanding portfolio of work, and I can’t wait to see his take on the SAYER universe. If we reach our first milestone of $200 per month, we will be able to commission the concept art to find out together!
Working alongside Jim to turn concept to a finished inked page is the incredible Colin Panetta. Typhon is a dark world, both literally and metaphorically, and I’m very excited to see how Colin manages the balance of light and dark with his inking. I’ve been in love with his work since Jonah first introduced this idea to me.
Jim Lawson and I are drawing a comic for the podcast SAYER. The comic is a milestone for the successful Patreon campaign supporting the podcast. Two designs for characters that will appear in the comic have already been posted. Those designs and the comic itself will be available to backers of the Patreon only, so check out and support SAYER on Patreon if you want to see them.
SAYER is a narrative science-fiction podcast with healthy doses of horror and comedy mixed in. It’s an ideal atmosphere for Jim and I to rock out in, and I’m very excited to unleash some of the techniques I’ve been developing for this story.
Each artist created characters asking and answering questions. The pages of every copy have been placed in random order, making each one a unique conversation (of mostly nonsense!)
24 pages. Letterpress cover printed on three different color (green, red and blue) heavy-duty papers at Big Wheel Press in Easthampton, MA. Black and white, laser printed interiors printed at Collective Copies in Amherst, MA.
