April 2019 Update.
AJ O. Mason here.
This is my first attempt at writing a monthly update for anyone who might be interested in what’s going on recently in my “career” (I’m still a bit uncomfortable calling it a career, but I’ll get over it) as a comic book writer and letterer.
If you happen to come across this update and read it, please let me know in any way you can what you think about it, how do you think I can improve, etc.
I wanted to do this thing for a long time, and I really want this thing to work, so, any feedback could help.
Okay, so, with the introduction out of the way, let’s get to the news, shall we?
“I Love You and Other Tales…” is for sale at Orbital Comics!
Oh, boy, I can’t even express how excited I am about this! Four copies of my short comics collection “I Love You and Other Tales…” are available for purchase in the Small Press section at Orbital Comics for the next two months.
I met the nice staff members of Orbital Comics back in late March when my girlfriend and I were on a 5-day trip to London, and I am so glad I decided to enter the store. All of them were really nice, and I immediately felt welcomed. At first, I thought they were never going to agree to stock the copies in their store, but they were glad to do that. I’ll forever be thankful to them. After all, they are the first ones to do it.
So, if you’re in London anytime soon, go visit Orbital Comics and grab a copy of my comic collection if you can. I would deeply appreciate it 🙂
Leap #1 gets released May 1st! First full-length comic of mine to get published!
The first full-length comic book I’ve ever written, Leap, is set for release by Ashcan Comics Publications on May 1st, with art by Ricardo Rock Alves, and a cover colored by Nate Lindley. Leap is a one-shot drama comic about two cancer patients who become life-long friends over the course of a 3-day stay at the hospital. I got the idea for this story while volunteering for a whole week in my local hospital, and it turned out to be this beautiful, emotional story about hope, death, and second chances. If you want to check it out, follow me on Twitter (@ajomasonwriter) for updates about that.
