Peter Coldbridge is a self-described ‘necromancer’ with no innate magical ability, putting him at a severe disadvantage to those few born with the ‘knack’ for conjuring spells without the need for a source of arcane energy. Can he use science to succeed in a world of magic?
So I did some pitches, got no bites, and decided I’ve got other ideas that’ll go over better with publishers anyhow, so it’s time to get back to posting Coldbridge online for free, as it should be!
Happy New Years! Things are great! Chapter 2 came out so well that I wanted to try pitching to publishers before posting online. Been working hard on that, which is what’s been delaying me releasing it digitally. Pitching process is slow. If no one bites, expect to see new Coldbridge with a new art style (Courtesy of the very talented Amelia Parris) in Spring.
I have found a new penciller/inker for chapter 2 and we are working hard to get a head start before I begin posting them online. Her name’s Amelia Parris, and you can check out her comic Maddy Scientist here. It’s fun, funny, character-driven sci-fi written and drawn by a rising talent!
Chapter 2’s going to be awesome. It’s got magical metallurgy, irresponsible roommates, demon eyeballs, flying squirrels, lost loves, adorable napping, and, of course, more irascible smooth fox terrier. All coming soon…ish
Went to the Kelowna Comics and Collectibles Expo last month and peddled print versions of chapter one. Got a great response. People were very nice and enthusiastic, and some of them were generous enough to give me their money in exchange for my ideas!
Thanks to everyone that stopped by my booth and checked out Coldbridge!
Andy and I have decided to amicably part ways. We’ll probably be seeing more of him in the future, but for now, I’m searching for a new artist. Until then, Coldbridge is on pause.
Andy will be in Leeds (England) at the Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival next week with printed editions of chapter 1!
Hi folks. You might have noticed there was no new comic on Monday. Been in Northern Ontario for a couple weeks working 12 hours a day, got another ten days to go. Been trying to keep up with the coloring in the evening, but I’m failing. We’re going to take a hiatus until September 4th. See you then!
Too busy for comics! Page 22 is in the works, but is already a day late, and won’t be finished all that soon. We’re going to wait until Monday, August 8th to post it. Give ourselves some time to catch up. Sorry for the delay.
Sorry folks, no Coldbridge this week. Might be a while, but will get it posted soon as it’s ready!
It’s not as exhilarating as geist-hunting in a bayou, but fetch in a marsh will do.
