  Well, just cranked out 9 pages of my first comic. Now to see if my artist runs away peeing his pants! Yeah, my imagination basically works like a movie, so we shall see if I am being a little too over the top with my expectations. I wish I could draw! I know exactly what I want, where I want it, and I wouldn't have to feel bad about putting so much on the artisits shoulders. I'm so glad I finally got off my ass and decided to attempt to make a long living dream come to reality. I love comics, and I love writing, so why not blend two of my favorite things together right? hee hee

I have a question for all of you guys. I still have no clue as to what the title of the comic is going to be, but I know I would like for it to have something to do with fate or destiny. Could any of you give me any suggestions? I would be very grateful! Well kiddies, continue enjoying Outlook grim and the rest of the comics in the SLG universe! Maybe one day I will join in the ranks of them! Here's to dreaming!

  hey guys!

Sorry its been so long since my last update, but you know how it is! Anywho, I am so glad to see some new members!!!!! Welcome to community guys! I know I already did this post below, but i;m still excited to have new people to talk about Outlook Grim with! Woot!

I went to the comic book store the other day, and although they didn't have issues four and five of Outlook Grim, I did happen to come across two comics that were quite good. The first was Autumn. I picked it up right away because it comes from SLG, and from my experience so far, SLG puts out some kick ass stuff! I was delightfully happy to find that Autumn is also very kickass! The other comic picked was the first issue of "30 days of night". I have a crazy love for vampires, and so this attracted my attention right away.

I am looking forward to issue two of the ghouly biys coming out, because I really enjoyed the first issue of that one! Antoher that I have found myself falling in love with is "Bear". I can't decide if I like bear or the psychotic cat more. hmmmm,.....

My comic is coming along really well. I have mapped out the entire first issue as far as what the pages will look like for my very talented artist. Unfortunately, unlike Black Olive, I am pretty shitty at drawing, but I was lucky enough to find a cool guy who works with my fiancee who is willing to bring my twisted imagination into the light of day. I have been going crazy trying to come up with a name for the comic, and I think I would like the name to have something to do with fate or destiny. They play a large role in the comics plot. Can anyone recommend any ideas to me??? I would be most appreciative!

Well guys hope to hear more of your thoughts soon! Have a great week!

bye bye

hey hey.

A few months back last year (Halloween time) I was reading a local newspaper out here in San Diego called Fahrenheit{ http://www.sdfahrenheit.com } anyways the cover art for that weeks issue was awesome,

so I went to check out who did it, and that is where I was introduced to the awesomeness of Miss BO. Even more, they had a giveaway that week to win some of her comic books, so I said what the heck, wrote a letter saying how I much I liked it and then a few days later, TADA I won! So then a few weeks went by and in the mail came this package from Black Olive herself, including a congrats letter, issue one and two of O:G and 4 lil postcards with issue 2 cover art.


more to the point, last sunday was the San Diego Comic Con!! yippee! I attened like I have been for the past 6 years and there walking amongst the isles of geeks and freaks, I saw a lil booth dedicated to the missy. She wasnt there or anything, I had missed her by one day, but I was able to buy 3.4.5 and a Ghouly Boys comic and some other bookies from some guy that was managing the whole booth of, which Im assuming, other SLG artists. score.

now after recovering from a sickness I recieved, I was able to start reading my new bookies this morning, and saw that missy had a fancy website..pointed my lil clicker at it and then found out that someone else out there in Live Journal land had a love for this stuffies. HOWDY DAY!

so thas me story and yadda yadda...

loves and pirates,

Miss Faith.

yay! a bit off topic, but none the less

I have finally come up with a cool idea for my very own comic. Yay! My fiance Phil has been talking to this guy Brian at his work. Brian is an artist who I asked Phil to ask for me if he would be interested in doing the artwork for my comic. He is really excited about it, as he will not only be inking my comic, but has also started creating one of his own. Yay, good things for all sides involved! I'm gonna start getting all these ideas down so I can go over them with Brian, that way we can determine what changes need to be made and if Brian is still interested. The thing wth me is, I not only write the dialogue, but I write exactly how I want things to look. I know every detail in my head, and so I hope thats ok with him. Yay, sorry I say yay a lot when i'm excited! Hee hee. Wish me luck, and good luck to Christopher and Olive on their free comic tour! You guys need to come share the love in Michigan!!!!!!

Have a great fourth of July everyone!
