Here are a couple of exciting tid-bits to share to help the week go by. There are only two items, and the week is approximately five days long. So you might want to pace yourself a little bit.
First, a review! Luckily it was positive, and the best part is I didn't have to bribe ANYONE!
Secondly, and probably more importantly (no offense, Jimmy), Yellow is now available for pre-order through iTunes! Issue #1 is only $.99, and it will be available for download on October 24th. Order now while digital supplies last. (Technology joke.)
Check it out here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/bobby-bierley/id568968244?mt=11
Hope you have a fascinating and legendary week, in all the best ways.

What's that? It's sold out? Has been for a while? Oh, well. Easy come, easy go. It's not such a big deal, anyway, because I'll be there in spirit. You see, thanks to a curse from an old gypsy woman I almost hit with my car, every comic book I print is embued with a tiny bit of my soul. The bad news is it means a good chunk of my chi is going to end up in a landfill somewhere--or, at best, recycled into one of those cardboard rings wrapped around a Starbuck's cup...and then end up in a landfill. But the good news is it also means when I ship a load of issues of Yellow to the Viper booth (#1903) in San Diego, a bit of me gets smuggled into the con as well.
Yes, that's right. Yellow will be making a bit of a soft debut at the great mecca of all comic conventions. Hundreds, if not dozens, of people will feast their eyes on Ralph's and George's awesome cover art. Many may even be compelled to pick up a copy and flip through it to be enraptured by Zeu's whimsical inks, given depth by G's whimsical...Oh, I already used that one. Um...by G's eccentric colors. (Thanks, internet.) And if I'm lucky, some of them might accidentally read some of the words that I secretly slipped in there--actually, that Ed slipped in there--and I may be able to trick them into being entertained. (Boy, when you think about it, what does a writer really do anyway?)
I know Ralph is even working on a special, convention exclusive poster for the comic. I haven't seen anything myself, nor will he even tell me what the heck it's going to look like. But if it all works out, you're likely to see it featured at the Viper booth along with everything else.

I'll have copies of the first two issues of YELLOW for sale, and a special gift: Mention this blog post, and I'll give you a free ashcan preview of the highly anticipated third issue, LIVING DEAD GIRLFRIEND. I don't know if you're anticipating it highly, but I know I am.
If you have read and liked the first two issues but want to know what happens next, I think you'll be happy with the plot advances delivered in LDG.
If you have read the first two issues but didn't like them, you still might enjoy the third one because the pace is ramped up a bit.
And if you didn't read the first two issues but did like them...well, then, you're a liar. Or you're my mother.
Speaking of LDG, the colors are coming along quite nicely, thanks to colorist Giuseppe Pica. Head over the Facebook page if you want a quick look at one of the pages (sans dialogue).
