Charlotte Minicon, Bee Sting, and Instagram

*Don't forget... The Charlotte Minicon is this Saturday, January 31, at the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, NC. Come see me, say hey, and buy some comics.

*The bonus stuff for the "Bee Sting" DVDs is almost done! That should be wrapped up this weekend and the DVDs will be all ready for our backers by late Feb/early March.

*Also, Bee Sting stickers are on the way...

*Ah, I'm on Instagram now, too. Follow me on there by clicking on the link here or over to the right.

Til next time,

Random Update: Late Jan '15

Hey, I said weekly updates, and look at that...staying true to my word!

* Added a few more cons to the list for this year. It's shaping up to be a pretty good 2015 already. I have a few more cons I'll be adding to the list soon. I'd like to hit up between 12 and 15 this year...we shall see.

* Speaking of cons, my first one of 2015 will be the Charlotte MiniCon, which is put together by the fine folks at the Heroes Aren't Hard to Find store. Jeremy Massie will be there with me. It'll be fun, you should check it out.

* Oh, yeah, I finally signed up for Twitter. I don't really know what I'm doing on there, but if you want to follow me or whatever, click on the link here or over to the right.

* I finished the script for #1 of my new comic project. Pretty close to being finished with #2. Jeremy Massie is teaming back up with me on this to tackle the art duties. It's probably gonna be 6 issues total...loads of fun stuff. We'll be showing stuff off soon. I've been slowly but surely sending Jeremy character sketches. There's a ton of characters in this book.

More info on things coming soon, so check here, my Facebook, or my Twitter.

Been Too Long...

Yeah, it's been six months since I've updated the blog. I know, that's stupid, but if you've been keeping up with me on Facebook, you've seen that things have been busy! Let me see what I can recap...

* Well, obviously, the "Bee Sting" movie was completed and we had the premiere on Friday, Oct. 3. We've done a few more screenings since then and I'm in the process of lining up more for 2015, along with cast and crew Q&A's at conventions. More info on that soon!

* All of the Kickstarter and IndieGoGo rewards for the backers will start shipping within the next 2 to 3 weeks. I apologize for that delay. Of course, we planned on things being wrapped sooner, but circumstances beyond our control cause some reshoots and we had to wait until early fall to do those. I'll be posting shipping updates on the Kickstarter page and this blog soon.

* I'm working on a new comic with my "Bee Sting" collaborator, Jeremy Massie. It's very different from our previous comic, but trust me, you'll like it. Artwork and details coming soon!

* I just updated the 2015 convention list...just a few so far, but I'll be adding more in the next few weeks.

* Oh, yeah, I keep getting told to get on Twitter. Dammit, I guess I'll do that soon...

I know this is short and sweet, but I'm just dipping my toe back in the blogging waters. I'll be posting weekly updates (at least) for the rest of the year!

Matthew

4 Months Worth Of Updates...It's A Doozy!

Wow, I suck...it's been 4 months since I've updated my blog. I'm sure most people who read this are friends with me on Facebook (if not, add me via the link on the right), so you've read a lot of what's been going on with me. The past several months have been PACKED, and I'm gonna cram a lot into this post...

* The Bee Sting movie Kickstarter was successfully funded and we filmed the majority of the movie throughout April and May. You can follow our progress and see all kinds of coolness by joining the Bee Sting Facebook page or following us on Twitter (links to the right). We have three more days left of filming and we'll finish the editing process. If everything goes as planned, we'll have the movie all done by early fall, but some of the other Kickstarter rewards will start getting shipped soon.

* Simon Says: The Complete Series graphic novel is now available for sale! I debuted it at this year's HeroesCon and sold several copies! It features a brand new beautiful cover by Desiree Pittman and Christine Brunson. The book is packed with all 9 issues and a brand new 15-page bonus story by Henry Eudy, as well as over 40 pages of bonus material not available anywhere else! To top if off, it features a foreword by Matt Fraction (comic writer extraordinaire) and an afterword by Christian Lane (former lead singer of Loud Lucy). You can order it right here!

* Click on that Comixology link to the right! Simon Says #2 and #3 have recently been added for only 99 cents, if you dig the digital comic stuff!

* Back to Bee Sting...I was interviews by Jimmy Aquino for Comics News Insider at HeroesCon this year. He had a lot of nice things to say about the graphic novel and the movie trailer. And at SC Comicon, I was on a comics to movies panel, where I discussed Bee Sting as well as other comic book film adaptations. Check out the links here:
Comics To Movies Panel
Comics News Insider: HeroesCon

* Oh, that Bee Sting trailer...it's right here, baby!

* Several more cons have been added to the list for this fall. Check out the list over to the right. I'll probably be adding one or two more before the end of the year. Yeah, I became a little crazy with the cons in 2014!

I promise to update more regularly, especially on Bee Sting progress and my next comic project!

Next Con: Mad Monster Party, Charlotte, NC, March 21-23

This past weekend was MGA Con in Macon, GA. The show as a blast and it was great to see so many people get excited to hear about "Bee Sting: The Movie". Hit up that Kickstarter guys!

Coming up next, Michael R. Carr and I will be sharing some table space at Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, NC from March 21-23.


I set up at the show last year and it was amazing. Everything horror you could imagine under one roof with some of the nicest fans who were anxious to read some of my books. Michael will have copies of his new comic, "Quiver", on hand (which I also lettered and formatted) and I'll, of course, have "Blood-Drenched Creature Double Feature" and "Simon Says" for sale.

Hope to see you guys there!

Next Con: MGA 2014 on March 15 & 16

More news coming soon, regarding the "Bee Sting" movie, "The Adventurers of Liberty City" #10 release, and the "Simon Says" collection graphic novel, but until then...

What's my next convention, you may ask?

You can see I've updated that handy dandy list to the right (and a few more shows will be added in the coming weeks), but next up is the Middle Georgia Comic Con in Macon, GA on March 15 and 16.


It's their very first con and I was pretty excited to hear about such a large con coming to my hometown area. I got the chance to help out a little with compiling the guest list, and it's quite awesome. Hope to see some of you there!

Til next time,
Matthew
