So we didnâ€™t win Small Press Idol. The honors went to Marshall Simon and Chris Marshallâ€™s epic western story, Warpath. We placed second of the top 3 with Daniel Coxâ€™s Tokyo Gonzo finishing a respectable third. Team Marshall truly lit the war party bonfire and never let it die down. I feel very proud to have completed against two such great teams and how Spud finished overall. Each one of these guys were pros the entire run through Idol so I tip my hat to them and send a big congratulations to both of them for a well played contest.
Am I bummed we didnâ€™t win? Of course. We worked out butts off and were just never able to get to that top spot. But we definitely made a good showing of our skills and what Spud can be so I think we have a great opportunity to continue from here and grow this series.
So now what? Well, first and foremost Mark and I need to complete our #0 book. Marksâ€™ made great strides art wise and as pages trickle in to me, Iâ€™ll be lettering and finishing them. Based on what Iâ€™ve seen, the later nine pages will blow the first 3 we previewed out of the water. I think we truly have a makings of super issue here. So stay tuned. Iâ€™ll continue updating on the #0 progress and further story developments here.
