On Break

Most of you are aware that Chapter 5 finished last week.
This means I’ll be taking a little break while preparing Chapter 6.
I’m not totally sure what day I’ll return but it should be some time in mid-May.
Make sure to continue to check on the site though. I’ll be posting lots of updates with my progress. Also, now would be a great time to get caught up on all the material in the extras section. There’s Fan Art, childhood Hominids of yesteryear, and concept art. I’ve also been posting lots of stuff at my Tumblr and Facebook pages as well, so make sure to check those out.
See you all soon with Chapter 6, which will conclude Book 1!,

40 pages later and Chapter 5 is finally finished!

Just wanted to through out a quick thank you to all the people to have stuck with the comic this whole time. It can feel like a slow progression with webcomics from time to time and I’m constantly impressed by reader tenacity to stick with it. I have no doubt you’re all spreading the word to friends and geeks everywhere to help grow the Hominerds universe.

As usual, I’ll be taking a month or so off to get Chapter 6 ready. I also have a couple other things in the fire. Things that will hopefully help Hominids go even further. Make sure to continue following the site, as I’ll be posting progress of all my work.

One other note, This last weekend was Emerald City Comic Con. I got the chance to meet a lot of great people, some of which were actually readers! Not to mention talking to a lot of great professionals and creators. Here is just a little preview. Check out my Hominids Facebook page for even more photos and highlights.

I doubt this comes as much of a surprise.

The fun is not the mystery of “who” the High Priest is…

…or was, rather the fun is finding out how he came to to be who he is now. He comes off as such a good person when he’s with Zona. It’s reminiscent of Icari when he’s with the Tree People…but, maybe that’s the point.

It’s surprising, but there is still one more page after this. It’s more of an epilogue, but it’s one of my favorites. You’ll find out next week. After that, I’ll be taking a short break to get Chapter 6 ready. There are some script things I need to tighten up and I need to make sure all the thumbnails and concept art is prepared.

Not to mention, it’s time to think about putting these books out in a real serious way. Like, in comic book stores. I’m looking into Patreon as a means to help pay for self-publishing. I haven’t completely ruled out finding a publisher too. We’ll see. The future is an blank canvas at this point.

This weekend! I’ll be exhibiting at both Emerald City Comic Con again this year.

For ECCC, I’ll be at booth 1308. On top of exhibiting For “Hominids“, I’ll also be there helping sell Monsterpedie 3, which is an anthology book I’ve been a part of for the last 3 years. So if you’re planning on coming this year make sure to stop by and say hi! I’ll be sharing the booth with non other then: Dev Madan of “Young Heroes in Love” fame, Karin Madan of “Stumpytown”, Misael ArmendarizErin MiddendorfRich Werner of Plants vs. Zombies, and master-painter Augie Pagan. Most of the other contributors to Monsterpedia have their own booth or will be there in their own capacity: Travis Kotzebue (Booth 1519) you should all know this man,Winda Benedetti (my writer and general awesome person) Mike Bear (Booth 1404), Lawrence Ruelos (booth K-13) ,Gene BlakefieldAnton BogatyStephen Byrne, Ryan Condone (Dev’s writer), Sarah DickensLynn Hogan creator of PrydwenPeter HonRob McDanielGreg Mezler, and Paul Whitehead.

These people are all incredibly talented and it’s worth your time checking out each of these links. The cover to Monsterpedia 3 was drawn by Dev Madan and colored by Augie PaganYou saw it! You can’t unsee it!

Two pages to go!

Boy, does that High Priest love to hear himself talk.

In case you didn’t see it.

I’ll be exhibiting at both Emerald City Comic Con again this year, and at Denver Comic Con.

For ECCC, I’ll be at Exhibitor booth 1308. On top of exhibiting For “Hominids“, I’ll also be there helping sell Monsterpedie 3, which is an anthology book I’ve been a part of for the last 3 years. So if you’re planning on coming this year make sure to stop by and say hi!

Here is a little preview of the short story my writer-in-crime, Winda Benedetti did for Monsterpedia 3

37Well, of Chapter 5 anyways.

Why is that? Because there are only three pages to go.

That’s right, after 40 pages this epic chapter will be done. I do my best to stay in a printable comic book arena at 24 to 32 pages. This time I got a little carried away, but what can I say, it’s my favorite chapter so far. I really didn’t want to rush it so there was a need to add pages here and there. It helped the pacing and moments that needed to be emphasized. I hope everyone is enjoying the story so far. Chapter 6 promises to take things to the next level!

The last two days were a little stressful.

You might have noticed the site was down.

There was a few issues with Sitelock that caused the whole thing to fall apart. Fortunately, I was able to get on the phone with my web host and Sitelock to get that all worked out. I apologize to all you folks out there who were frustrated that you weren’t able to get to the site the last couple days.

On a happier note, a couple of fun announcements!

I’ll be exhibiting at both Emerald City Comic Con again this year, and at Denver Comic Con.

For ECCC, I’ll be at Exhibitor booth 1308. On top of exhibiting For “Hominids“, I’ll also be there helping sell Monsterpedie 3, which is an anthology book I’ve been a part of for the last 3 years. So if you’re planning on coming this year make sure to stop by and say hi!
