Local # 11 Preview And #12 Preorder

Here's a teaser for the upcoming Local #11, Toronto issue. I know it's 7 years bad luck for posting cover art but the end of Local is very near and I already feel like celebrating. I'm jittery, so I throw all the rules to the wind! Brian makes the best covers don't you think?

Local 11

I co-wrote this issue so I'm very excited. If you have been a regular reader, take comfort in knowing that the last 2 issues will be incredibly rewarding for those who have been loyally following the series. In this issue we are introduced to a new character in the Local universe--Nancy Bai, a local art student at the Ontario College Of Art and Design. In addition, this issue is our way of resolving any remaining dissonance with the Megan-haters out there. It's my way of
saying, " Oh so you HATE Megan McKeenan? Meet Nancy Bai."


We're still writing and drawing Local #12, but it's zooming along and almost done.

You can PREORDER Local #11 and Local #12 at Khepri at 40% cover Price. Only $1.79 Each. Stock up on other books while you're there.

T'was Brian's idea to do the gallery scene on the cover.

T'was my idea to do the long wraparound double cover.

T'was me that paint the picture.

T'was Brian that does the kick-ass design around it.

T'was the night before Christmas.

Comics.. The ultimate cooperative experience! Work together, Or die Alone!

Ho! I didn't realize it was such a collaborative effort!

Has that been the standard for all the other covers, too?
