First of all, hope everyone had a great Holiday season. I wisah you all a Happy New Year 2017, may it be the best year of your life!
As for me, I got some great news and some less great news. The good news is that I was accepted in TCAF, the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, that will be held in May, just before my birthday! It’s a really exciting opportunity for me, to finally attend such a prestigious comic book festival in English language. I still have a good amount of Supercrash copies available for sale, and I’m happy I’ll finally have an opportunity to find new readers. I'll surely have copies of the second book as well.
Speaking of the second book of Supercrash, that's the bad news: my publisher in the French language politely suggested me to go find some place else to publish my next book. In other words, it can't produce physical copies of Supercrash 2. I already suffered a huge delay in production in September that really bummed me, but now I guess that's it with that publisher.
It’s a huge disappointment that sets me back in my progression as a comic artist. It means I’ll have to either go back to publisher hunting or to go the self-publishing way, which is what I'm considering the most since I have some experience with it. Crowdfunding is also a possibility. I’m considering all options, but I gotta act fast, as the book festival season is approaching FAST.
In the meantime, the webcomic will go on, as scheduled. I’ll find some place to fit in the fanart special I was talking about earlier, don’t worry about that.
Thanks a lot for reading, guys. Your continual support is what keeps me going, even through these tough times.
