What we’re seeing now…

What you’ve been seeing these past few weeks and will see for a few weeks to come are what we originally solicited as Division 18 issues #1-3. Actually, “Issue 3″ was never solicited as a stand alone, but it would have completed our initial offering for the Division 18 Trade Paperpack. We hope you enjoy the new content, even if it is a pain to lug into the bathroom.

So, what happened to those original solicited books? Shit happened, that’s what. Ain’t that always the case?

But Jeremy and I are happy we got as far as we did pushing our cruddy little gem through Silent Devil. At the end of the day, the realities of small press publishing — especially the ones that apply to black-and-white independent comedy comics created by a couple of no-name newbies — proved to be too much of an obstacle to ignore. Hence, the redesign. Let’s move on, shall we?

In ”issue 3,” which we’ll refer to from here on as “The Union Files,” you’ll get to see MY first crack at penciling some of the D18 crew’s antics. You’ll also finally get to see those long-promised pages from Josh Adams. And keeping it all together is the glue, Jeremy Donelson, with some pencils of his own, and ALL of the inks and letters. After “The Union Files,” Jeremy will even be kicking me to the curb from time to time to knock out some solo D18 stories (though they’ll still carry my rubber stamp of co-creation). Be sure to bookmark the site and subscribe to our RSS feed, and we’ll be sure to keep the new comics coming.

No more dealines. No more false promises. Hell, send us an e-mail and we’ll probably even take requests! THIS is the new place to get your complete Division 18 fix. Tell a friend. Punch an enemy. Support the Union!
