Good News from abroad
Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest:
Black Box is going to be showing their latest collaborative effort for Pandora’s Garage Volume 4. Our black and white anthology is now in it’s second year of printing. There have been a huge amount ups and downs during this time but it has all been worth it as we get ready for new and exciting stuff for this year. With this year we’ll be showing off our first full color comic Johnny Vega -in color! I thought that the name should harken back to the reruns of any of the old Quinn Martin productions of the late sixties and early seventies.
Pandora’s Garage Vol. 4 Will show how Daniel Barton was able to vastly improve on his artistic technique with his digital know how and put a origin on El Samurai. Origin issues are their strange beast in the comic book world. Most writers I have found actually stay away from these as they are just fleshing out a character and their motivations. Origin issues used to come out hand over fist as a way to sell books to young naive readers. I know, I was one of them. I, unlike Daniel, decided to take another path with Johnny as I had first adventure start off on chapter three as kinda a nod to George Lucas the mega monster that Star Wars has become. It also was an attempt to have a serialized story in every one of the Guilded Edges books that were coming out around the turn of the Millennium.
The whole of Johnny’s story was completed as a 52 page story but as fate would have it those stories never got to see the light of day.
Johnny would not be denied. And now he’s here and in color to boot. But on top of that he has his own origin issue all his own.

Not every issue has been listed as of yet as we are turning out books as fast as we can and Ka-Blam is hugely over loaded on their end for books being printed. Their on line webstore has been giving us a few problems with current updates but over all everything is looking good.
