THE CROSSOVER IS COMPLETED!
After nearly three years this monumental piece of work between two small press companies is now done. Yea us! The unveiling of this 60 page monster smack down will take place with this years Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle. A major show with a major draw and potential major sales. This show (outside of the San Diego Comic-Con ) is one of the biggest shows taking place here in the Northwest. The NEOtrash crew, Devin and I are all looking forward to this event. Also on top of the great personalities and great comics to bought is the fact there is a lot of great original art work to be bought. So if you happen to be in town for the show please stop by and say "hi" to us.

HOWEVER a mini of Weird Atomic Tales will be released in time for this years Stumptown Comic Fest.
This brings me to the next item of business, Stumptown. Again this year Black Box Comix will be tabling with NEOtrash Comix. With the crossover done it makes sense to keep the fires warm for the advent of another project and coming down the road. Hopefully it won't take as long to finish. And on top of that we have been confirmed for Stumptown.
AND AS FAR AS SHOWS GO There are really only five shows that I want to participate in this year. One of which I am already in. The Portland Love Show, E.C.C.C., Stumptown Comic Fest, The Jet City Comic Show and the Big 200. I know recently I had said to a few people that I wanted to take a break from shows and books but once you've been bitten by the creative bug you can't stop. Hopefully this won't mean a burn out for me.

AND SINCE WE HAPPEN TO BE TALKING ABOUT SHOWS- NEOtrash Comix has been accepted into the STUMPTOWN COMIC FEST for 2012. Nice to be invited back into our own neighborhood backyard.
COMMISSIONS: Still in a holding pattern for the time being.
As of this time a new commission has been put forth by a friend of mine who has also brought a upgrade as far computers go to help further along my work as a artist, Toby Person (a.k.a. Lupo Negro). Toby has been a great friend and supporter for me personally and a supporter of Black Box Comix and it's books.
THE POSTIT ADVENTURES: Where are we now with Johnny Vega? Still on hold till I can access my external hard drive and rework the Postits.
OTHER STUFF: Nothing new yet.
OLD BBC BLOG What a lot people I believe don't realize is "Tales from the Scratch Pad" are the new Black Box Comix Updates. Check here if you want to see those old blogs. That is of you want to read up on old stuff. And so there you go. A lot of things going on at Scratch Pad.
