The 8 of Swords is now Available from Screaming Eye Press

You can now buy a copy of Salient Caligation: The 8 of Swords.

The Devil is shaping up to be about 50 pages before extras. I should have the last pages in time for an early 2021 release. I have decided to rewrite the pilot episode, so “the Lovers” it will provide new content vs being a straight panel for panel redraw of the original Chapter 1- Contracts.

Rolling forward, this will be the chapter set-up for Salient Caligation:

1 – The 8 of Swords – Full Issue Available: Screaming Eye Press ; Drive Thru Comics

2- The Devil

3- The Lovers (2021)

4- Death (TBA)

5- The Tower (TBA)

6- Judgement (Finale- TBA)

Other Media tie-ins:

Nikola (Short story)

“Death Answers” and “Voyeur” (short stories in Nightside: Tales of Outré Noir)

“Mother” (short story in Coming Through in Waves)

Rise: The Ardent Souls (WIP -Book Series)

Eidolon (working title, graphic novel, in development)

Fallen (working title, graphic novel, in development)

So stay tuned!

Updates and Anthology!

We’re still on track. I think I will have some fun news come the beginning of 2021 soon but I have to get there first. Updates for the comic will continue to be on schedule through the rest of the issue.

I actually have to get to work on the script for the next issue. I haven’t decided if I will start intermingling redos of Chapter 1 – The Lovers with Chapter 4 – Death.

In other news, I’m excited to announce that I have 2 short stories included in the upcoming, “Nightside: Tales of Outre Noir” anthology edited by Mark Slade. This is my first inclusion in an anthology and I hope this will not be the last.

These stories fall into “noir” but they have a supernatural/horror twist.

Full details and blurbs for my stories below.

Editor: Mark Slade

Genre: Outre Noir

Publisher: Close to the Bone

Publication Date: Estimated Oct 30, 2020

Nightside collects 14 tales of Outre Noir by Mark Slade, T. Fox Dunham, Holly Rae Garcia, Kimberly Godwin, Paul D. Brazill, Viktor Auralius, Jeff Niles, Jesse Rawlins, Jason Norton, Tom Pitts, Michael Martin Garrett, Jim Shaffer, Phil Thomas, and Andy Rausch.

Death Answers. How hard could it be to recover a pawned ring? Investigator Josephine St. John readily accepts the case but can’t shake the unsettling feeling that there is more to the ring than her client is telling her…

Voyeur. Something is horribly wrong with married couple, Alan and Marianne Fields. Their bodies are battered and their expressions haunted. When they end up on Dr. Felicity Kane’s couch, only her unique gift can help them. Can Felicity discover the truth in time to save them?

Nikola

I recently published my horror romance short story, “Nikola” to Amazon Kindle featuring cover art by Nicoy Guevarra! This is set in the SC universe but we won’t see this connection until later on in Salient Caligation.

As always, Patrons get early access to updates and bonus material. Donations help the comic update more frequently. We are still on track! We’re getting close to the end of this issue. 😉 Please consider donating through our Patreon or Ko-Fi links.

If you’d like to support my artist, Nicoy more directly, please consider donating to her Patreon or Ko-Fi.

Also of note, Song of Asteria Issue 1 is also live on DriveThru Comics, Amazon Kindle and Blurb!

Impact

No one ever likes the truth. The magic thing was easy to believe but the fairy thing is just too far for Marie? I guess everyone has to draw their line in the sand somewhere. 😉

Anyway, if you’d like to see Salient update weekly, please consider donating to my Patreon! Nicoy does a great job on these and I intend to keep hiring her for the work. =) Donations through my Patreon go directly towards Salient Caligation while donations through my Ko-fi go to my projects as a whole. Donators get early updates and an updated PDF with all of the current comics in the issue.

Nicoy also has a Patreon to help free up some of her time from freelancing to work on more personal art, consider supporting her directly here: https://www.patreon.com/nicoyguevarra/

Tribulations

I am ecstatic that we have been moving along so well with Nicoy at the drawing helm! We are still maintaining a bi-weekly update rotation as it stands right now. Donators get a week early release of the sketch pages and the completed pages. At the end of the month, donators get the compiled PDF of the current chapter. If you want to help off-set the costs, please consider donating to my Ko-Fi or to my Patron!

I also write Song of Asteria which updates off-set to Salient Caligation on a bi-weekly schedule as well. If you were unaware, I also wrote something for Starship Moonhawk / Cosmic Feline that was recently animated, Surrender. I am also on the writing team for two other episodes in that particular animation trilogy. Give it a look! Any support would be greatly appreciated!

Salient Caligation updates next on Jan 23, 2019. =)
