It has been quite awhile since I updated this site. And a lot has happened! I'm going to take it one thing at a time, and I'm going to do my very best to get back to updating regularly. I particularly want to get back to my posts on writing (I'm nearly through writing a piece on text vs. subtext).
For now, again, one thing at a time. Let's started in the Wasted Space corner of the Moreci-verse (is that a thing? I guess it is now).
First and foremost: Wasted Space is now an ongoing series! Originally slated for 10 issues, Vault has upgraded my little sci-fi series that could to at least a 20 issue commitment. Which is amazing and crazy all at once--having an indie comic become an ongoing series is not an easy thing to accomplish. It's tough to compete against much bigger titles on the rack, but we've managed to do just that--and it's all thanks to you readers. Seriously, thank you. The reception to Wasted Space has exceeded even my wildest dreams. In addition to pretty much unanimous critical praise (even The Nerdist called it "easily the best new series to hit shelves this year"), we've been so damn luck to also experience remarkable commercial success: Issue #1 has gone back for three printings, issue #2 is on its second printing, issue #3 is sold out, and...I don't know what the status of #4 is (it just came out last week).
That's pretty amazing, let me tell you. So, again, thank you. Truly.
Now, what can you expect from the series, now that we have all this real estate to play with? Well, I can't tell you, specifically, but know that we have a firm plan in mind, an even firmer vision of the ending, and the story is only going to get crazier, and riskier, as it goes. In short: We're going to have some fun : )
And if you haven't been reading the series (as evidenced by all the selling out, issues have been hard to come by), I strongly urge you to catch up with the first five issues when the trade paperback drops at the end of September. You can get caught up in one big swoop and be ready for the new volume--starting with issue #6--that I believe is set to be released in January (we're giving the artists, Hayden and Jason, a little breather).
That's it for now! Next time--thoughts on writing canonical Star Wars (here's a preview of said thoughts: SQUEEEEEEEEEE I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS REAL) as well as an early look at We Are Mayhem, the sequel to my debut novel, Black Star Renegades!
