We’re Number Eight! We’re Number Eight!

I’m a little late with this post, but I just wanted to thank everyone that supported Skullgoyle during last month’s competition at Zuda. The competition was tough and made up with some high quality comics. Overall, I feel it was a worthwhile experience — as well as a worthwhile experiment with my first real true venture into the world of web comics.

We started the competition in ninth place after the first week of voting, and then settled into eighth place for the duration of the competition after the second week of voting. There was a lot of great support from friends and comic fans, and it was all greatly appreciated. Many readers knew exactly what we were gunning for I felt that I accomplished what I originally set out to achieve — win or lose.

A big thanks to my collaborator, artist Daniel Thollin who did a fantastic job with the script that I gave him. I fell he really nailed the mood and established all of the points I was hoping to achieve with what was essentially an introduction or set up for a much longer series of adventures with Victoria Valentine and her guardian — the Skullgoyle. Daniel was great to work with, and had we won, I feel it would’ve been a breeze to continue our Skullgoyle partnership and produce a weekly Skullgoyle serial. I hope to work with Daniel again, if not more Skullgoyle, then something else. In fact, we’ve already dipped our toes into the collaborative waters of another project. We’ll see.

Also, Stephen Lindsay did a great job with the lettering. In writing the script I had some specific lettering. Stephen had no problems handling the requests for tweaks here and there — and in the end, nailed exactly what I was looking for.

Hopefully Skullgoyle will once again soar and roar — somewhere, someplace, and in one form or another. Until then… Thanks again for the support.
