Hazardous Tales #6 ...in the works...

This is what the big chalkboard at Hazardous Tales studio looks like right now:

The manuscript for book #6 has just arrived back from editorial. My editor said, "This could be the perfect Hazardous Tale!" The chalkboard is for final art. The little corner loop is for lettering. 128 pages, endpapers, cover, mini-medal, back cover arrow, and spine art due in June!

The color of this book will be YELLOW.

I can't tell you exactly what it's about. But it takes place in TEXAS. It's a historical event you may REMEMBER. I really hope readers will COME AND TAKE IT when it comes out.

Hazardous Tales #5 cover reveal!

Okay, gang. I've been teasing you about this for months. No more. Here it is, the cover of Hazardous Tales #5: The Underground Abductor.

The flag on the right is the state flag of Maryland, where a lot of the action takes place.

The Underground Abductor arrives in March! Five months to go!

Crunchy Carriage!

Here is page 91 of Hazardous Tales #5 in progress. I don't love drawing cars--and I have trouble with horses, but boy, do I love drawing carriages! Figure that one out.

The subject matter of book #5 is still somewhat under wraps. This book comes out next spring, so we'll have a subject and cover reveal later this fall. I don't think there are any giveaway clues in this image, other than the fact there will be a carriage in it.

I am deep, deep into this book right now. I have 37 pages to draw and color in the next sixteen days. This is the real grind. I've been working on the book all summer long, but here, in the final weeks, is when the crunch really hits. I'm now in full reverse sleep mode (work through the night, sleep from 8am to 3pm--while the kids are at school). It's a silly schedule. But it works for comics crunch time.

Crunch on!
