April 12 came and went with a whimper for me. After months (over a year) of the book being done, Harbor Moonhttp://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=citydoglax&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=1897548958&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr finally shipped last Tuesday.
It is at once my greatest accomplish and the bane of my existence. It has been such a struggle from its very inception (me calling Brian Anderson in 2003) to last week – and not for any other reason than other people. The best part of the entire process was dealing with Karol/Pawel and then all of those that accepted the book for review – some of who I talk to on a very consistent basis. One of those reviewers, who I had zero relationship with before his review of the book, actually wrote a script for me (details to follow). Company politics, vulture producers and a host of other miscreants have come and gone throughout the process – but one thing never wavered – my belief in the book and myself. I am glad I was created this way – disturbed and with a laser-like focus, that is usually to my detriment but propels me to do things others can’t or won’t. And I hope you have a chance to check out Harbor Moon – because I believe that what we did is worthy of your time (and money).
And if you do check it out, and like it, please take the time to submit a review on Amazon. Your words can go a long way.
It was my dream growing up to make comics – and I am proud of the fact I have been able to accomplish that. It’s hard pulling it off when you yourself aren’t the artist, and it is even harder trying to sell them – but when you love what you are doing and the products you are putting out it makes it all worth it.
