Hi guys and gals,

I’m back with some more Brute news. But first, we need a better way to address our fans than ‘guys and gals’, like ‘true believers’ or bieblievers (or not at all like that), or Brutes and Babes… Okay, that’s terrible… Please suggest a great, fun name for all our followers. Best suggestion will get a signed Brute poster mailed out to them.

Terrific news – pencil art for Brute #3 is now almost complete and we’re moving into lettering/inking/coloring stages now.  Each issue has been an improvement on the last and this one is no exception. If we’re taking longer than before, once you see it you’ll know why!

Also, for all of you who purchased a single issue of Brute at a convention, or purchased a digital copy online and want to get the rest of the series in print – wait no longer! Now that I’ve adequate supply, I’ve made print copies available via our website: brutecomic.com/shop for both Canadians and Americans (note all prices are in Canadian dollars so if you’re in the States figure it’s about 25% cheaper than the price you’re seeing). All copies will be in bag with board and mailed in a padded envelope.

My comic con tour continues – last Sunday I was in Stratford (Justin Bieber’s hometown), ON. It’s a beautiful town and well known for it’s Shakespearian theatre – so my lovely wife and I took in some culture while we were there and saw Chicago (the musical – okay, so not that much culture…). Pics below.

Upcoming appearances:
Bolton – June 18th
Scarborough – June 19th
Niagara Falls (Canada) – July 10th
Oshawa – July 16th
Peterborough – July 17th
Orillia – July 23rd – and reunited with my mentor, Richard Comely of Captain Canuck fame.

It’s great fun meeting fans (and future fans) at the conventions and spreading the word about Brute! Hope to meet some of you on my travels. Pictured below is me talking with Ryan Poirier of accidentalcreations.ca – Creator of ‘The Herd’ and ‘Farm Freaks’ (all ages comics).

By the Essence,
