Smallville Season 11 coming April 13th!

April 4th, 2012 by admin

Bryan Q. Miller breaks down how to purchase your copy of Smallville Season 11.  I could not have said it better (which is why he is the writer and I draw pictures). Please read the blog posted below.

________________________________________________________________

so how do i buy the smallville season 11 comic?

BRYAN Q. MILLER

We’re 2 weeks out from the first installment of the Smallville Season 11 premiere, “Guardian,” going on-line. If you aren’t waiting for the printed version (which becomes avail. May 2), you may be wondering how/where you can find the digi-comic.

If you have a tablet device or smartphone, you’ll need to download the free DC Comics (iTunes / Android) or Comixology apps (iTunes / Android). If you’re new to these apps, the DC app (quite naturally), gives you access to select DC comics past and present for a per issue fee. The Comixology app is more of a catch-all, multi-publisher hub (DC, Marvel, Image, etc.), where you’ll be able to purchase installments of Season 11, as well as MANY other things.

If you don’t have a tablet or smartphone, fear not! You can still read the Smallville comic online by visiting comixology.com and opening an account (again, free to sign up, followed by a per issue purchase fee). You will have to enter credit card information at some point, much as you would have to for iTunes. This goes for the app, as well — it will not auto-purchase each week’s issue for you. You will have to stop by the site/open the app every Friday and make the purchase.

In print, you’ll need to locate/contact your local comic shop (LCS). New comics always become available (or “street”) on Wednesdays. The print editions of Season 11 should be available towards the beginning of of each month (shipping date released when a given month’s “solicits” are released online and in Previews magazine), but stock will vary from store to store. Plan ahead! If you don’t have an LCS and wish to read in print, shop around online and see where you can pre-order (tfaw.com and Midtown Comics jump to mind as good places to start).

I cannot stress enough how vital it is that everyone legitimately pay for this book. For projects like this, sales are super-important. Please do NOT grab torrents. It’s just a dollar a week. If you can’t afford that, save your pennies until you can and avoid spoilers. Piracy is wrong. It just is.

Thanks, Gang! Hope you like it

Smallville Season 11

February 9th, 2012 by admin

So at midnight last night a dream come true became a reality! After sitting on this info for months it was finally announced, I will be doing digital covers for Smallville Season 11. As a fan of the show I am excited it gets to continue and we get to finally see Clark in the suit! So, come April, dust off your iPad and make sure to get your digital copy!! Please look for  updates here as well as Facebook and Twitter

Here is the press release from the DC blog:

Smallville Fans Rejoice! New Comic Book Series, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11, to Pick Up Where Show Left Off

Fans of the smash-hit TV series Smallville haven’t had much to cheer about since the show ended its critically acclaimed 10-year run on The CW last May. That’s all going to change with the upcoming new comic book series from DC Entertainment: SMALLVILLE SEASON 11. Written by former Smallville show scribe Bryan Q. Miller, the new digital first series will be published digitally on April 13, 2012, with new digital chapters released weekly thereafter. Additionally, the online chapters will be offered in a print periodical, along with an episode guide to the hit television series, with the first print issue released on May 16.

The new comic book series picks-up where the show left off (with Clark officially now as Superman!) and features other fan-favorite characters including Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Chloe Sullivan-Queen, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, and General Lane. The book features an all-star creative team – in addition to Miller, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 creators include print cover artist Gary Frank (SUPERMAN SECRET ORIGIN), digital cover artist Cat Staggs and interiors by Pere Perez (BATGIRL).

“Six months after Clark Kent donned the cape and took to the skies to save Earth from Apokolips… enter Season 11!” enthuses Miller. “New allies abound! New enemies afoot! And old friends return where they’re least expected! Pere and colorist Chris Beckett have done a fantastic job of capturing the look of the show and the players, and Gary and Cat are knocking it out of the park on covers. I couldn’t be more excited to help give seasoned viewers and new readers an all-access pass to Clark’s first year in the cape.”

Happy New Year!!!

December 31st, 2011 by admin

So 2011 is ending and I honestly can’t remember half of it. I guess I could check my facebook timeline to find out but I don’t think anything could compare to how the year ended.
My career seems to be finding a great path and I am busting at the seems to share new projects but alas I have to hold off a little longer. I will say one of them helped me cross off a resolution that has been on my list for quite some time.
Womanthology is coming soon and Hot Mess seems to have found its groove. Next year looks to be the busiest yet and I can’t wait.
But for me 2011 is all about one thing for me…I got married! This eclipsed everything for me this year. From the perfect intimate ceremony with friends and family, to the unbelievable gift of my parents wedding rings on our fingers, it was as close to perfect as it could get. Thanks to 2011, I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend by my side.

So with that mushy post I wish you all a very Happy New Year and here’s to a wonderful 2012!!

Womanthology!!!

To showcase the powerful and unique voice of all women who create comics. Sort of shine a spotlight on the small percentage that makes up the industry we love. And to raise money for charity.

I will be teaming up with Barbara Kesel for a story in the upcoming Womanthology Book being published by IDW. As soon as I have more information I will pass it along. For now you can keep up with the project at their blogspot page also on facebook and twitter

You only moved the Headstones!

June 15th, 2011 by admin

Well some of you may have seen a few Twitter and Facebook posts about this but last week my web hosting company switched email servers and recreated my account. In doing so they accidentally deleted the old account without forwarding or downloading information, thus losing two and a half years worth of emails, correspondence and contacts. The previous server was unable to retrieve anything. Heart meet attack!

What does this mean to you reading this?

Those of you who have outstanding commissions or have been so kind as to send me scans of sketches from recent shows here is what I need from you.

Please forward your pay pal receipt and the commission request email. I cannot work on these pieces until I know what they are so the sooner the better.

Con Sketches
Please forward scans of sketches if you still have them. That would be wonderful if not, that is OK as well.

The address is the same info@catstaggs.com

This address is now being backed up on another address so hopefully this will not happen again.

I appreciate the help.
