Omnitarium #1 Cover Preview

Here's a preview of the cover for the first issue of Omnitarium, by series artist, J.C. Grande.

The book is in the final stages of lettering, so should be well and truly ready in time for Indy Comic Book Week.

Also, the book will be going out under the Ronin Studios banner - a great Indie company that have been putting out some fantastic books for a while now.

We have another pin up!

I received the final four pages of inks at the weekend - one small change to make to a panel, and then that's it for the art, issue one completed... over to Bernie Lee for lettering.

We will have some scripted preview pages and a cover to show in the next week or so, and the book will be going to the printers early in November, ready for Indy Comic Book Week.

In the meantime, here's another pin up by the supremely nice and very talented Victor Cabanelas - this one shows Omnitarium's Inquisitor Lord Blutstein - guardian of our world, Knight Templar and "Hammer of God" - he's the man that stops people like Harrow Moonheart!

Almost There!

Excuse the tardiness with posting, the day job has been getting in the way of this aspect of the book, but rest assured all is well at Monkeypipestudios!

Omnitarium nears completion, the cover and last four pages are being worked upon, the script tightened and made ready to send to Bernie Lee for lettering, and all is looking good for the book to be ready to go to Ka-Blam in time for ICBW.

While we wait for the cover - which will be the next image we want to show you - here's a couple of pin-ups to whet your appetites:

First up we have Harrow Moonheart - the villain of Omnitarium. This fantastically dynamic piece brought to you by the very talented Drew Moss:

Next up is a piece by the fantastic Nate Snareser, showing a character who makes his debut in issue #2, the master-thief and escape artist, Lucius Allain:

We hope, as we get closer to completion for issue one, to have more pin-ups, character sketches and, soon, some lettered preview pages to show you all soon.

Stars Aligned!

With the release date having been tentatively set for around Dec '09/Jan '10, the announcement of Indy Comic Book Week has given us a spur to push for the release to be during this event.

I already have three or four local book stores interested in carrying Omnitarium, and with pages 1-20 now finished, and pages 21-24 and the cover mapped out, things are looking good.

More will follow soon.
