Happy Friday, everyone. Welcome back to another thrilling installment of America's favorite production blog for America's favorite in-progress graphic novel, The Switch!
At this time next week (barring any plane crashes. I hate to fly since I had kids), Tom and I, along with the mighty Robb Miller, will all be signing together at Limited Edition Comics in Iowa. Rob, the owner of LE, always treats us like we're far more important than we are and makes a great day out of these joint appearances. His customer base is also great, they make these signings feel more like an all-day get together with friends than official business. I'm going to see if we can update the blog from Limited Edition next week, maybe some kind of video update. I'm sure Tom will be shooting some footage for the behind-the-scenes "Making Of The Switch" documentary so maybe we can kill two birds.
If you live in the area, stop by. I mean you, Moose Baumann.
So this week, I thought I'd show off the finished colors to Doug Mahnke's alternate cover for The Switch. Tom has ordered a print of this cover that we're going to give away at SpringCon in Minnesota next weekend. Any readers that are there will have a rare chance to get it signed by all four members of Team Switch (did Tom mention this last week?). Anyway, the people at Springcon are awesome. They sent me a care package full of candy this week, along with a check for some traveling cash for my trip out there. First class treatment all the way and I'm very grateful to be treated so well. Just don't tell Mike and Mike that I'm actually like fifth class talent, not first.
So without further ado, here's Doug's cover. Eric Marshall, I'll be bringing the original with me next week as part of your backer reward. Make sure you get Doug to sign it!
Thanks for reading, guys. See you all next week!
