It's going to be at least another week 'til I get my computer back but I managed to get access to another terminal so here I am!
The really exciting news is that Marineman has made the cover of DIVER magazine - North America's longest established diving magazine, and not only that - they have featured a 6 page spread devoted entirely to Marineman!
How cool is that?!
It's making me feel the way I did when I first saw my work published at Marvel Comics!
It should be on the stands about now I believe, and this is what you're looking for...
|DIVER Magazine - The comic issue!|
As I said in the previous post, the San Diego Comicon was a rocking show, I got to see hardly any of it as I was at the Marineman booth most of the time, but everyone who stopped by remarked on how huge it was and what a great time they were having.
So many friendly people came by the booth with nothing but support for Marineman and the series. I had a lot of fun just chatting about the character and hearing about the character from different perspectives. A whole lot of families stopped by which was really encouraging as we need as many younger readers to get into comics as possible.
Quite a few Navy people showed up at the booth too who seemed to enjoy the Navy's presence in the series. A very pretty Navy girl from Florida (whose name I can't remember) was chatting to me while I signed a copy of the trade for one of her daughters and expressed that she'd love it if I could come up with a Navy inspired bikini! She was lamenting on the unflattering/unfeminine attire the Navy issue.
So if I find myself with some free time, I may give it a go and post the results right here...!
Anyway, here are a few snapshots from the show and I'll post again once my computer is fixed...
