Status Report-- The Perhapanauts: Into Hollow Earth


Hi, Perhapa-Pals~!

Todd here.

So, as I'm sure many of you have heard by now, Craig and I are running a bit later than expected in the production of our all-new original graphic novel, Into Hollow Earth...

I am here to, among other things, bring you up to speed on our progress and, for the most part, to take the hit.

When we first set out to create what we decided would be a brand new, full-length Perhapanauts adventure, Craig and I wanted it to be all the things we usually shoot for--thrilling, exciting, dramatic and fun--but we also wanted it to be definitive, to be the ultimate Perhapanauts tale, one that could stand alone and be enjoyed by both long time fans and new readers alike~!

And we wanted it to be a true graphic novel --meaning a novel length feature that you could immerse yourself in, one that you could get lost in, something that felt like an event when you were done--a reading experience that took more than a few minutes sitting at your kitchen table.

When we started, I piqued Craig's curiosity with a story of subterranean adventure, with a serial-like tale that harkened back to the fantastic pulp magazines of old-- Amazing Stories and Amazing Fantasy --and the classic comic strip exploits of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers ~!

He said, "Let's Go~!" and off we went.

But as I found myself confined to only 45 to 50 pages, I became depressed trimming and editing out scenes and sub-plots that I felt gave the story it's passion and flavor. I begged for 10 more pages and Craig gave them to me...

But here I need to beg your patience  'cause those ten more pages will take a bit more time.

I hope that you will bear with us.

Seeing Craig's remarkable artwork for this story, I can only tell you that it will be worth the wait.
He's blowing me away with every single page and I can't wait for you to see them~! ( some previews will be forthcoming in this blog-space )
To help Craig get a jump on the coloring, we've elicited the time and talents of our pals, Rich Woodall and Rod Hannah to flat things out and get pages ready and we can't thank them enough for their assistance.

Thanks for your understanding.

Here I will be posting a few of the old Amazing Stories covers that I bombarded Craig with to inspire him for the astounding retro-future world we are creating.
Hope you dig 'em.

Thanks~!

QUICK KICKSTARTER UPDATE



first off, over halfway there... thanks everybody! still a ways to go, but every pledge/share helps.

a wise man said "sure, but where's the pledge level to get ALL the books so far?"

...done! not just one, but TWO. (one level to just get all the books... and one with the bonus swag prints, etc)

and it looks like there's now a "join the gang" spot open again...

a retailer friend asked for a "crypto-retail level!"... and we're working out the details, so stay tuned.

thanks!

THE PERHAPANAUTS KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN LAUNCHES MONDAY MAY 25


If we could tell just ONE PERHAPANAUTS story... THIS IS IT!  

For years, the Perhapanauts have shielded mankind from the strange and the unexplained. Acting covertly, they have faced paranormal anomalies and displaced creatures, often laying their lives on the line for an unsuspecting world.

Their adventures have taken them across the planet, to every continent, to the four corners of the Earth. 

This time, they’re going IN.

THE PERHAPANAUTS: INTO HOLLOW EARTH original hardcover graphic novel.
54 story pages of full color, inner earth, crypotzoological action, adventure and humor (so, technically a 64 page book)... written by Todd (Impulse, Tellos, Sensational Spider-man) Dezago with art and colors by Craig (Impulse, Batman Beyond, Iron Man: Armor Wars) Rousseau.
