It has been a while since I have updated you on what is going on so I thought I'd best take a few minutes and let you know what our plans are.
First, while we haven't yet set a release date for Red Lion Spotlight #1 our hope is that it will be this coming winter. That ish will feature "Stateside Mouse" by Steve Skeates. Number two will hopefully be out in the spring of 2011 and that will reintroduce Lloyd Smith's "Kragor". Then the third issue will present "Captain Sentinel and the Lads of Liberty" and our hope is that we will have that issue out by July 4th. Keep your fingers crossed.
We haven't made plans beyond that as yet but once we do we will let you know what they are.
As well as being publisher/editor/creative director/chief-cook-and-bottle-washer for RED LION PUBLICATIONS I am also pretty darn busy doing some freelance work for other folks. Here's a brief list of what I am working on at the moment.
1)A new origin of "Captain Sentinel and the Lads of Liberty" for Surprising Comics ( www.surprisingcomics.com ) with pencils by David Johnson Jr. and inks and letters by my old buddy TW Montgomery.
2)A 6-page Dracula tale for Red Leaf Comics ( www.redleafcomics.com ) which introduces a new female character called Kendra who will be appearing elsewhere in the future.Pencils, inks and letters will be done by my fave artist Seppo Makinen.
3)An "Id the Gorilla Ghost with Honcho The Headcheese Dog" tale with Dave Owens for Surprising Comics.
4) A two issue story for Star Verse Comics that will feature my version of Destiny-though wearing the costume used by Lloyd Smith's version.
5)Some t-shirts featuring my characters.
6)A five to six issue limited series featuring public domain heroes and set in 1947.
7)A number of comics stories with Shannon McCabe ( www.shannonmccabe.com )
8)The revival of the Skywald Heap as a regular series for Surprising Comics.
I've got other stuff on the go too but I can't mention them as yet. And oh; I should mention too that "She is...Silkie:" will finally be seeing print under the Surprising Comics logo.
Surprising Comics by the way is the imprint owned by Mark Davis who also just happens to be our publicity guy here at Red Lion Publications. That's one of the things I have always loved about the small press end of comics publishing; while we don't make a lot of money and have to work our butts off we do help each other out and don't regard each other as competition.
Finally before I sign off CE Publishing Group will soon be releasing Perilous Adventures #1 which will feature work by myself, Lloyd Smith, Mark Davis and others.

Take care, be safe and keep in touch. I can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org . Sorry; not looking for talent at the moment. But when I am that info will be posted here.
