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 always-fulfilling world of KLC PRESS! Let’s jump right in, shall we?
A VERY SPECIAL SCHLUB PRESENTATION FOR OUR WRITERS OUT THERE!
As you all know, we here at KLC Press have devoted our hearts and souls to giving you, the Chain Gang, the inside look at the process behind the world’s greatest comics as they come together!
We’ve shared much on the art side of things, but we have long promised (and received many requests) to present the WRITER’S side of the process! And as Ryan Stegman becomes more of an all-in-one Writer/Artist extraordinaire by the day, we’re finally pulling back the curtain!
This week we released the first five pages of SCRIPT for THE SCHLUB #1 to go with the five pages of artwork we released last week! This is a really exciting look into the collaboration between writers RYAN STEGMAN and KENNY PORTER, as well as how TYRELL CANNON’S wonderful artwork came to be!
And to top it all off, KENNY wrote a delightful introduction to the pages that provides even further insight! Gotta say, as aspiring writers ourselves, your local SUPPLE BOIZ can’t get enough of this stuff. Check out the post below!
ALL THE LATEST OVER ON PLANET STEGWORLD!
IS IT CHRISTMAS ALREADY?
There are all kinds of incredible goods available NOW over at the STEGWORLD shop, and we’re here to make sure you don’t miss a thing! Give yourself the best possible early-Thanksgiving gift this year!
STEGMAN’S I HATE FAIRYLAND #1 VARIANT!
Oh, yeah. In case you missed all the hubbub, this bad boy dropped on HALLOWEEN (appropriately) and there are still copies available NOW… Including copies SIGNED BY RYAN STEGMAN! Snag yours today! Just click HERE!
THE MANY COVERS OF VANISH #3!
Final Order Cutoff for VANISH #3 (A.K.A. the three-way-tie with VANISH #1 and #2 for the most-hyped comic of all time) at your Local Comic Shop ended on October 31st! But don’t fret, friends! You can reserve your copy of the myriad of beautiful covers (including the badass Stegworld-Exclusive Baron Vanish Sketch Variant above) at STEGWORLD by clicking HERE!
Treat yourself! Everyone will be talking about this issue, that’s the KLC Press guarantee!
STEGMAN GETS ALL MUSHY ABOUT SKOTTIE YOUNG!
“AMAZING FRIENDS”, OR… “AMAZING BEST FRIENDS”?
After all the hype around the above-mentioned STEGMAN I HATE FAIRYLAND #1 VARIANT, Ryan wrote a lovely piece about his legendary friendship with series writer SKOTTIE YOUNG and how it came to be!
It’s a great read, serving as both a peek into the career histories of two comics greats, and a peek into the everlasting connection between two boys who love Skype.
Check it out by clicking the adorable and mischievous Baby-Variant Ryan Stegman below!
BEHOLD… THE BEST IN STEGMAN MASTERPIECES THIS WEEK!
As is well-known by now, we here at Chain Mail Enterprises love to keep you up-to-speed on all the insane new pieces of art that our biological father Ryan Stegman drops casually during the week!
This week is no exception. Below, you’ll find the gorgeous pencils/inks for Ryan’s incredible AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #18 JOHN ROMITA HOMAGE VARIANT (left)! This piece went up on FELIX COMIC ART this week, and sold in the blink of an eye to one of you lucky Stegmaniacs! Big congrats, this one is drool-worthy!
Also below is Ryan’s teaser image art for the Season Pass of the upcoming video game MIDNIGHT SUNS (right)! This spooky piece did drop on time for Halloween, you’ll just have to take our word for it.
Now for something REALLY exciting: The Steglord’s cover work for the upcoming series BLOODLINE: DAUGHTER OF BLADE! Feast your eyes on both the inked and colored versions below, and try not to run to your Local Comic Shop to buy this book right now because it’s not out yet! But, understandable impulse.
