November Update – Part 1

Hello, my friends!

Happy Post-Halloween!!!

As I noted in my last update, I’ll be chiming in more often to keep you in the loop of progress.

To quote Nirvana, “with the lights out, it’s less dangerous, here we are now, entertain us”. That’s what I was attempting to do amidst the great Maine power outage of 2017. Many of you may not have power back, even today.

Thanks to our trusty lanterns, I used the time to dive in and touch up/work on inking more pages.

Inking with the lights out.

Once we got power back, I was back to gathering and organizing the rewards to get shipping out. Here is a photo of the pile of shirt rewards!

With the weekend upon us and electricity flowing steadily into the house, I’ll be scanning in more pages and coloring more, to add to the 1st chapter preview I am building towards to release to you all.

Cheers and take care!

October Update – Part 1!!!!

My friends and outstanding backers!

We are nearing the one year anniversary of the Kickstarter launch!

It has been far too long, since I have posted here. Hopefully most of you are following me on Facebook and Instagram, where I have been tossing out content as things have been progressing. If you are not, I strongly suggest you do.

First, if you have not heard, there was a great write up in the November Down East Magazine, covering this book. You can read that article (only if you can’t purchase one off the rack) here: Hometown Hero.

Things have been moving along steadily with the book. I am 75% done with pencils, 50% done with inks and 30% done with colors. These factors are pushing the book out of the proposed October release. My math of attempting two pages a week was a bit over zealous, especially when I want to really nail this one for everyone.

Ryan, what does this mean to the loyal backers? This means I am going to start mailing out rewards for everyone this month, with a second mailing going out when the book is complete. I’ll gladly eat the cost of that, since you are so amazing and I heave your rewards ready to go. So, keep an eye on the mail, even if you only backed the book. Something special is coming your way.

That’s not all!!!! Look for another update coming later today that will contain the full colored prologue for you!

Soon, the first chapter will be released to you all in PDF format, with subsequent chapters following, leading up to the big book release!!!

Again thank you all for your support and be sure to reach out to me with any questions.

Cheers, – Ryan

The latest t-shirt design for the October Ghost is here! It will be making its debut at the BanGOREfest in Bangor, ME on October 30th. Like the classic one you have come to know and love, this is a hand silk-screened white image on a black t-shirt coming in a range of sizes, with more made to print upon request.

Site Rebuild Begins

Hello there.

As you can tell, the site has been stripped clean and I am beginning the rebuild process. Nothing like needing to migrate a site to force you to reexamine its contents and what you want the focus to be.

For those returning here, welcome back. For all new readers or interested parties, I appreciate your interest and want to say hi.

Cheers,

-Ryan Wing
