Official Press Release: So What's up with Titanium Rain?

Since the book's strong debut back in July 2008, this is the question we've heard almost daily from fans, friends, industry and press.

The short answer is, Titanium Rain is back.

After a prolonged delay due to our publisher coming under new management, Titanium Rain will return to store shelve come June with a complete re-launch of the series. As well, with the series moving to a monthly schedule, issue #2 will be out just in time for Comic Con. With Archaia Studio Press (now simply called, Archaia) shifting to a more streamlined and networked operation, expect to see Titanium Rain and other titles receive better support, industry representation, and most importantly, better availability in stores.

So yeah, it's been a long winter, but the winter has passed.

Kat and I both thank everyone for sticking by us as Archaia needed the time to get its house in order. Believe me when I say, the wait was worth it.


P.S. If you're going to be at WonderCon in San Francisco this weekend, stop by the Archaia booth, #427. We'll be there all weekend.

WonderCon News

Josh and I WILL be at the Archaia booth #427 all weekend long so if you are going to be at WonderCon this weekend, definately come check us out!! Whoo Hoo. I'm really excited. This will be my first time in SF and I'm looking forward to checking out the con as well as the city. I'm expecting this to be a really fun trip.

Need a suggestion.

I've been getting the urge to do a "fan art" piece(something I haven't done since high school) and I need the help of anybody reading this to decide what to draw.

I want to do a cheesecake/beefcake shot of 1)a Marvel or DC Character, 2)a (not the) test subject from Portal, 3) a character from Legacy of Kain.

Yeah, those are some strange ones but these are all things I want to do and just can't decide where to start. :)

Thanks guys. :)

Coming up on tomorrow's post...
What conventions will Josh and Kat be attending in '09 and what's up with that book of theirs, Titanium Rain. :evil grin:

The Keene Act

Not quite sure if the Watchmen is going to be cool or really suck, but saw this video on CBR and had to repost it. Mainly because the "vintage" footage is really cool. :)

Update and Rants 2/2/09

Spent this weekend getting new furniture!! Hurrah!! I don’t care what people say, Ikea rocks and their instructions are NOT hard to follow.

We got a new entertainment center (because the old one took up too much room w/ not enough storage space) and a new computer desk for me (a wood plank on top of a set of drawers does not a desk make.) As well, we rearranged the room now so the Josh and I have a much better, more sensible work space. Now the next project is to get either a new dresser or get a bed with storage under it. Would prefer the later, but we’ll see.

Ok, time to rant about things on my mind:

Quentin Tarentino: WTF Happened?! Josh and I watched Grindhouse this weekend. “Planet Terror” = amazingly awesome … “Death Proof” = god awful!!! Don’t think I’m giving anything away by saying that it really freaking sucked. Didn’t even get through it all. Just fast forwarded to the end. It was like watching a Kevin Smith movie. Lots of witty, wonderfully written dialog that went NOWHERE and NOTHING HAPPENED!


What happened to him? Has he just given up on making “movies”? A bunch of talking scenes strung out together does not make a movie. A movie has a plot and a story structure and actually goes somewhere. This did not. Act One in a two hour movie should be done within 20 minutes max. I should know the characters, the setting and possibly have the set up for the conflict established in that time.

Hell, LOTR did that, and they had a full 9hrs.+ of story to tell. Our main character and the 4 supporting characters that the story followed were all established as well as an introduction to “The Ring” by the end of Bilbo’s party.

This is what watching tons of MST does. Makes you very critical. I think every film student should routinely watch MST because they point out all the things NOT to do when making a film. And lots of scenes of nothing is definitely on the list.

Political reporting: Don’t want to get too much into politics here but this I gotta say. Obama hasn’t even been in office for two full weeks yet…. Why are you already keeping a running tally of what promises he “has and has not” kept? Why people? Give the man a fucking chance! I mean, I’d expect something like that from the Limbaugh crowd but from CNN?!

And why did you give it such a stupid name? The Obameter?! *pulls hair* You think we’re all morons don’t you? Or at least, you think the weekend crowd is a bunch of morons, right? *shakes head* first the “science expert” and now the Obameter. I’m really growing to hate their weekend programming.
