Mijn kort verhaal tegen pesten is op de website van Stichting Stop Pesten Nu geplaatst. Ik ben er supertrots op en als er iets waar ik mij sterk voor wil maken dan is het wel om jongeren met pestproblemen te helpen, doormiddel van mijn verhaal. Hierin probeer ik kinderen en volwassenen te inspireren om niet op te geven en door te zetten. Help elkaar en neem het voor elkaar op tegen pesters.
Het verhaal heet Belofte en is getekend door de Braziliaanse tekenaar Rodrigo Stella. Extra dank aan Robin Jones voor de lettering en Ivo Goeyens die heeft geholpen met de tekst. Voel je vrij om dit verhaal te verspreiden als je denkt dat iemand het nodig heeft.
I just wanted to let you know that ALFA #3 will be for sale on June 7, 2018 via ComiXology and you can stream it on Comichaus around that date.
Other than that, I would like to tell you that I still can’t believe I’m on the third issue already! It’s like a dream come true that I’m working on this project. As you all know by now, I created most of the characters back in 1998, (when I was 17) during the Christmas Holidays. Never could I imagine that I would really publish this comic book series 20 years later!
I couldn’t have done it without my creative team who’s responsible for the awesome art and letters. And of course I couldn’t have done this without my ALFA fans from all around the world. Thank you for supporting me and the creative team and with your help, I’m sure we can finish the first volume of ALFA.
Here’s a sneak peek to a few of the unlettered pages. Art is done by Brazilian artist Rodrigo Stella. Let me know what you think. 🙂
Change of Heart
A run-in with ALFA leader Keniko Hoshi might have the vigilante Eddie Lawrence think differently in solving cases solo. Will he be tempted to join the team and fight crime on a higher level?
After years of working on my superhero comic book series ALFA, I finally have decided to self-publish under the name SOUTHEAST COMICS. ALFA is a series I created back in 1998 until 2000. After a pause of almost 6 years, I decided to start again with writing stories about my characters Keniko Hoshi, Eddie Lawrence and Roo Beaudreaux, together with other new and revamped characters. I tried to make this dream of mine a reality, to let an artist work on it in 2010. But several artists and failed attempts later, I’ve put this project on hold.
But not any longer!
As we speak issue 1 is fully finished. Production on the lettering for issue 2 has begun, and after that issue 3 will be lettered. Issue 4 is in the production stage of inking the first few pages and the same goes for issue 6! Issue 5 is fully written and when the artist of #4 (Rodrigo Stella) is finished with that one, he will move on to do #5.
The first issue will be available in February in printed form and digitally. More info will follow soon!
Here’s a sneak preview from a few pages of ALFA #1 & #2 artist Mike Gallagher. Check my website frequently since I will be posting new stuff about ALFA, to keep you all updated.
