Afternoon, all! Sorry for the lack of posting today. It's been a little crazy as I've been working and promoting since yesterday. And, yknow--


That's right, WE'RE BACK IN FIRST PLACE! We haven't been in first place since the first week of competition. Can you friggin' believe this? We stand at 17267 views, 381 favorites and a solid 4 1/2 star rating. And, oh yeah, WE'RE IN FIRST PLACE!!

As of this writing, we're 18 hours away from this whole thing being over and the winner being called. Of course, what's nice is that now that we're in first place we can just sit back and coast. It's pretty much a done deal at this point, right?

Um, no.

No, we're actually in an even more precarious position than we were before! NOW WE'VE GOT A BIG HONKIN' TARGET ON OUR BACKS! Seriously, I'm freaking out. We're so close, but there's still plenty of time to lose this thing. PLENTY of time.

I'm gonna be honest with you here. I've been asked a lot this past week about what we're going to do with MONSTERPLEX if we don't win. Publicly, I've refused to answer this question. But privately...I'll tell you right now that privately David, Michael and I were all resigned to losing yesterday and we were talking about precisely what we would do with MONSTERPLEX when we lost. No "if"--WHEN. We all talked about what we'd like to see happen and under what conditions we'd consider going forward with this thing. Decisions and plans were made.

And in all likelihood I'll never have to share them with you! I mean, that's actually possible. That's mind-blowing to me.

To live this dream--to produce a comic for DC Comics...well, that's just something that would be very special to me. And to David. And to Michael.

Thank you. Thanks to everyone who has cared and supported and championed us. Your enthusiasm for us and for MONSTERPLEX has been amazing. And humbling.

But it's not over is the time when the word must spread as far as it possibly can. We need votes, yes, but also favorites, star ratings, etc. You know the drill. I've gotta think we're on the razor's edge here. We just need you for 18 more hours! It all ends at 9am PST/Noon EST.


More later.

Nice work, bro. You'll have to tell me your secret sometime! It was a tough click to make, but you got my vote.

Ryan, I know that MUST have been hard. I really, really appreciate it, dude. Luckily, it's paying off. I can barely believe it.

Here's hoping many more follow you over!

You think you'll try again at Zuda?

Ryan, I hope you try again at Zuda. I really enjoyed reading Sci-Fi Drive-by.

Keeping my fingers crossed for Monsterplex!
