Here it is Community! A couple years ago I made a commitment to keep RetroForce in print. I’m happy to say that I think issue eleven is one of the finest additions to the series. Great as a stand alone issue and if you’re a first timer this one’s probably a good place to test the water. The bonus features also happen to feature main characters from my other two regular titles. Being a true Capricorn first, the Morning Blaze zine is also completed. Twenty pages of collage and multi contextual imagery as well as some short text. I’ve done my best to convey some high brow magical concepts as well as a few spells and mediation techniques in one collaged and embellished zine. Of course I’ve done a few illustrations in the work also, but not in my usual ‘comic book’ style. This is a little bit more personal. I’ve also taken a cue from other zine-masters and formatted the back so this can be mailed as is! I’ve already sent a few out so it’s official in circulation! Of course you don’t have to mail your books this way but I personally feel that the stamps, torn seals and funky postal print add a genuine sense of the ephemeral. This print run is numbered. Sigh, something I wish I would of taken the time to have done when I started. You’ll just have to take me on word when I say that all runs are ceremoniously capped at low numbers.
Trick or Treat? I hope everyone had a fun & safe holiday. I know me and my crew have. For those of you who tuned into local ch.21 tonight and watch out show, Thank You! I hope you where entertained and saw a new vision of Charlotte tonight. I want to do more things like this, it would be great to collaborate with other local artist. Coming up next, RetroForce #11. This issue focuses on ‘Diamond Back’ visiting a childhood hangout, with a backup ‘Snort’ solo feature. This book is a few hours from finished but Im holding off on printing until I’ve finished my witch book zine. I’m putting a lot of work and study into the zine to make sure I can reach people in a quirky natural way. Some new things for me this November are the complete Elf Quest vol.1, Im reading it with intentions of reviewing it here. I’ve also done something I have never done before, I bough at video game. MK:Shaolin Monks. I think I can do a chap-book about my game play experience and convey how it relates to my spiritual journey. I’ll be diving deep into subjects such as remote viewing and screen scrying. These are my plans for the dark days of winter, what are yours?
