Hello and thank you for reading!

Hello everyone. I'm really excited to finally get this out there! If you know me, then you know I have drawn and loved comics since I can remember, I have done many comics that have never seen the light of day and many that were never completed. I never really considered myself a writer and if anyone knew my process of writing (which was basically a rough plot outline then designing the panels, doing the sketch, digital ink and color and then finally writing the dialogue to follow my plot outline) people would probably call me crazy. My first attempts at comics had a much more detailed and time consuming art style. I believe this made it incredibly hard to work full time to support myself and write/draw/ink/color my comics. It was frustrating. I stopped drawing comics for a little while and learned Photoshop. I fell in love with the program. Especially after buying a pen tablet. Coloring has become my new favorite process in creating comics. To me it feels like a mix between doing art and playing a video game! How could that not be fun? I chose to go with a style that was quick enough to pump out pages at a decent enough pace to keep me motivated. Maybe my next project I can team up with a Writer and Inker and just do what I love which is drawing and coloring. I used Manga Studios 5 for the inking and some other effects throughout the book. It is quickly becoming my favorite tool the more I learn about it. Special thanks go out to J.R. Akers (who pretty much was my "creative consultant", and helped me make some concept and plot decisions), also to the people who helped proofread for me Jared Armstrong, Veronica Alexander, Garrett Godsey and Krys Lobsinger. Also to my friends and family who have seen a lot less of me since I started this project, you guys are great for putting up with that! So that being said I hope you guys enjoy the book and stay tuned for Issue #2 as soon as I get it finished :) -Justin Davis
