FEEDING GROUND _ Read all about it!
I'm currently wading in ink trying to finish up pages for Issue 3 but I thought I would share links to our first bit of press for FEEDING GROUND.
Both come from the Comic Box column in The Jersey Journal and NJ.com written by William Kulesa. When I was living in Brooklyn, my dad had been cutting out columns of William's reviews for me and it was surreal to talk with him and be featured in the paper.
The first is a personal profile/ interview (complete with picture!). So cool to be able to share some early influences and talk a little more about the pitch process.
And THIS, is one helluva well-written review. It's our first one and such a relief to hear that someone understands what we are going for and that we are delivering on the page. I realize that we will be getting some negative and middling feedback but this one certainly speaks to our intentions and is a warm welcome into the world.
Get a load of this excerpt:
"True horror is far greater than the fear of a monster or even something so simple as death. It is this encompassing of innumerable meanings of horror that "Feeding Ground" does so well, even in the first issue."
Thanks to William, the Jersey Journal, and my partners Swift and Chris!
Also, below is the ad we ran in the program to Casey Safron's 2010 Animation Block Party. Always a fun summer event - thanks Case!
