Site Launch

Soooo… The Horror Within is getting ready to launch. My cousin Rich is doing an awesome job of translating my many needs and wants into realities. Stuff we’ll have and do:–Accounts for all regular contributors, plus blank accounts so that guest contributors and fiction submissions can all have proper bylines.–Awesome graphics that H has been working his ass off on. (Don’t worry, his actual ass is cute as ever)–Normal stuff like FB like buttons, our Twitter feed, and cool widgets–Soon…

The Other “F” Word

More Magazine Talk

It’s coming right along. It would be finished now but I’m still waiting to get interview questions back from one of the artists. Laying it out has been a huge task, but I think I’m getting the hang of the program now. InDesign is actually a lot like Illustrator with multiple pages. So all those Stig & The Puppetman comics actually did more than display my inadequate drawing skills. I was gonna avoid using Creative Commons art like old ads…
