Kickstarter Campaign A Success!

Great news!

The Kickstarter campaign to release Legend of the Ztarr Volume 1 in print and full e-book edition has been a complete success! Thanks to everyone who backed the project. The series is now off the back-burner and production is back in full gear. This is great news for Legend of the Ztarr fans, with an estimated release date of summer 2014.

In September, a successful Indiegogo campaign helped series creator, Sara E. Mayhew, to upgrade her old Cintiq 21UX to a new, more portable, Cintiq Companion. This is a huge boost to making all the illustration work needed to complete Volume 1. Here’s a sample of a panel drawn with the Cintiq Companion, using pencil-style Photoshop brushes:
