Tasty tidbits taunt and tantalize!!!

Trying to savour the sun up here in Van’ (a rarity, to be sure), but a lingering malady has been draining my joy. Still, there are a host of warm fuzzies landing unexpectedly on the doorstep, so I thought I’d spread the news and maybe find a little healing mojo in the process:

– the final packaging arrived today, complete with slipsheet, chapter booklet, Comicon banner inserts, creator message, and a gorgeous LEAR/SPEC/SILO folded blueprint! If I had to name one thing that I’m most satisfied with regarding the Fox release of our junk, it would be this…

– OR, it might be the limited edition pack-in ‘BEGINNINGS‘ comic that we made with VIRGIN, which we just received finished proofs of. Drew’s two covers look smokin’ (one’s a Comicon exclusive), and the interior art ain’t too shabby either. The 16-page story teases events just before the series begins, and finds our four reluctant heroes already wrestling with a sense of deep foreboding….

– not only did Ian (along with his trusty ward Caleb) spend the bulk of last week creating an ungodly heap of promo stuff for Comicon, but he also rocked the old web skills to post our new front page! Lots of sweet diversions there including linkies to the Fox and Amazon shops (for pre-ordering), the new MySpace DVD page, our Wiki listing, and even the Saintly Stumble-Upon group. Dope shit, indeed.

Michael Dobson (ORAN) and David Kaye(LEAR) have confirmed their attendance for Comicon! Not only will they be signing swag at the BS Booth, but they’ll also be featured on our crucial Saturday panel at the big show. These are great men, people – true giants of the local voiceover biz’ – and we’re damn honoured to have them grace the saintly space.

– the New Year’s Eve promo marathon of BS on Book Television won a TV-industry award last week! Oh…and our trailer’s on the Nightwatch and What the Bleep (Rabbit Hole) DVDs!! OH…and it’s confirmed that another hefty Telefilm grant has officially come down the pipe!!! I wonder what that could be for…?

So yeah…I may be having a health hiccup or two, but the good news continues to soothe. Expect a newsletter later in the week, where I’ll likely go into detail on the above (and more?) as we count down the three weeks until Broken Saints invades San Diego – hope to see you there!!!

Peace – Love – Word is Bond

    That new dvd-set keeps sounding better and better! Damn it. 😛 I mean, it’s a good thing… just not for my wallet. ;x

    Any chances on obtaining the comic without ordering the dvds immediately? *blush*

    Good luck with it all guys! 🙂

    Man, I am getting butterflies in my stomach. This is exciting!! And I hope to update the wiki some more soon. Still has a bit of the work in progress feel to it.

    No comic online, Ange…but if you pick up the new version at Sam Goody and other Transworld stores, it’ll be packed in!
