It’s been a little time since I’ve been active, for good reasons I promise! I have a lot going on behind the curtains.
But forget all that! This is NOT a FRANK N. STEIN post. (fifth issue is around the corner)
People may have heard a bit about this “side project” I was working on for the past few months. Well, things….. evolved? What started out as something small and fun has become something laboriously epic and awesome. My very good buddy, Damon and I have collaborated for the first time and I think we’ve become something of a wrecking crew. Shit just worked, nah mean? And thus, Pound of Flesh was created.
I wrote Pound of Flesh as a short, one shot story. It was simple, to the point and a shit load of fun. I always said I would never write a superhero story unless it was something else, something more than just a simple superhero theme. While absolutely planning on seeing this project see the light of day, I just didn’t see myself as being the artist. I wanted this to be my first collaboration in the comic world.
Damon just got back in town and I asked him to be the artist and join me on my crusade, fully knowing he was the right guy for this story. Being his first time ever working on a comic he took a second to find his ground and then rocked it the entire rest of the way. And somehow, along our path we took my simple story and amplified it to something much greater. Becoming a second love of mine Pound of Flesh is OUR story. A story that two kids from high school would be happy to know their future adult counterparts have created.
Truth is, we don’t plan on stopping here, we’ve got more to tell and more to draw. Now just to find an audience.
