Y’done fucked up now! Spook’s here.
This is a fun page to finally be able to draw. I’ve had it in my head ever since September of 2009, when I made this page. Back then, I didn’t have this full story written. I just had little scenes here and there. Little snippets.
This page and the one right after it is the snippet that was in my head when I drew that flashback panel of Silk.
If you haven’t already noticed, she’s in a box-type thing in the flashback, but a barn in the actual comic. There’s a reason for that!
Originally, I had her being kidnapped by a guy who had a traveling freakshow. Seemed to be a good way to transport a succubus through the Southwest in the 1880s. But then, one day, I was unpacking some comics and realized that I’d swiped that traveling freakshow idea from an old Jonah Hex comic.
So I had to change the set from a tiny box-like traveling cart to a barn.
And that’s your Locus trivia for today. Stop by next week! It’ll be a fun page. And thanks for reading this page! It only took me 3 years to get it to you.
Speaking of taking forever to get stuff to you…guess what’s finally on sale? If you said Locus Trade Paperback #1, you’re correct! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’m autographing the first 50 copies, giving away 3D sketches, and possibly even my most Favorite Locus Sketch Ever. Click here and check it out.
I will be advertising this deal on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and THE WHOLE INTERNET tomorrow, but I wanted to give Silk & Honey readers first dibs on all the goodness.
And speaking of goodness, you should have some free music, too!
Go download Tomb of Stars by The Hedons! The whole album is 100% free, and not only features Hampstead on the cover, but there’s even a song called “Hampstead”. I’ll give you three guesses what that’s about.
Seriously. Grab that album. If the bass riff in Parasomnia isn’t the best bass riff you’ve heard in years, I’ll eat my hat.
Special thanks to The Hedons for making badass music and digging my comics enough to make a song about the bad guy! Thanks, boys! You guys are awesome.
And thanks to you Silk & Honey readers for reading my comics! Be here next week! Spook and Silk say their first words to one another.
