It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year... NEWSLETTER FRIDAY! (CHAIN MAIL #15)
YOUR WEEKLY KLC PRESS NEWSLETTER!
Welcome back to…
Hey folks, it’s the Supple Boiz, Ethan S. Parker and Griffin Sheridan here. We’re back to catch you up on all the latest developments in the holly-jolly world of KLC PRESS!
This week, in case you haven’t heard, our boss and surrogate father RYAN STEGMAN has been on a luxurious getaway.
In a way, we’ve been left in a Home Alone situation here in the KLC Press offices, so we’ve just been running around doing all the stuff Ryan won’t let us do while he’s here.
We’ve re-written VANISH scripts and sent them off to the publisher, we’ve scanned our butts on the copy machine, and we’ve even left Ryan a little surprise on his office for when he gets back:
Anyway, on to the news of the week…
NEW EXCLUSIVE VANISH #4 COVERS!
If you’re looking to give the coolest Christmas presents of the year, boy do we have a scoop for you.
The insane new VANISH #4 covers you see above launched on the STEGWORLD SHOP TODAY for all who are interested (which is presumably everyone)!
You’ll have to act fast if you wanna play Santa Claus with these bad boys, as available copies are limited! For all the details, you can click on the post below! Or, if you’re already all-in and wanna place your order NOW, click on the cover images above! For God’s sakes, just click somewhere!
RYAN REVEALS NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN DESIGNS!
Here’s a little holiday gift from us to you: We host a weekly art instructional series here on KLC Press where you can submit your questions on social media using the hashtag #STEGMANSPEAKS and have those questions answered on the show by the man himself! Don’t you feel bad for getting us socks now?
This week, Stegman talked through what he believes makes a great character design, and even revealed never-before-seen concept art from VANISH! This one’s a very special episode, folks!
Check it out by clicking the image below! Or the one above! Or HERE! I love paralyzing the reader with too many clicking options!
STEGMAN, ROSENBERG, PARKER, SHERIDAN… MY GOD, IT’S THE AVENGERS OF PODCASTING!
HAD ENOUGH RYAN STEGMAN? IMPOSSIBLE!
For those who missed it, Ryan guested on a very special livestream for Matthew Rosenberg and the Supples’ podcast IDEAS DON’T BLEED a few weeks back!
If you didn’t catch the stream, the show is now available in audio podcast format (which some would say is superior to the livestream, because it’s edited and has a theme song and you don’t have to look at our faces)!
You can check it out on your podcast apps, or by clicking on Rosenberg’s episode post below!
ANOTHER EXCITING ART DROP… DEATHSHROUD!
As always, we love to keep the loyal Chain Gang aware of Mr. Stegman’s extracurricular activities… And we’ve got a doozy for you this week!
If you haven’t heard before, Ryan has contributed his skills to Chad Larsson and V Ken Marion’s Deathshroud in the past… But this week saw the big reveal of Ryan’s cover for the upcoming Deathshroud Giant Size #1, which launches on January 16th!
Check out the 90s-style craziness below!
AND FINALLY… A LITTLE BITTY TEASE OF WHAT’S TO COME IN VANISH!
Enjoying your copies of VANISH #3? Already pre-ordered VANISH #4?
Well, as soon as Stegman is back from his extravagant vacation, he’ll be hard at work once again on FUTURE ISSUES of the greatest comic series on shelves right now… And this week he gave us one of his trademark teases of what he’s cooking up!
Enjoy, and we’ll see you next week!
WRITE TO US!
As always, make sure you hit us up (at email@example.com, of course) to let us know what you’d like to see on the Substack, and how you’re feeling about all the craziness of YEAR 2 so far! We’d love to hear from you, and we’ll feature some of our favorite bits of correspondence here in CHAIN MAIL!
