Entry 298: NOSEvember.

I have this really cool thing I do where I notice people doing a thing. I don't know what it is or where it came from, and instead of choosing to join in or not join in, I instead justify my not being apart of it by believing that thing to be stupid. HA Ha Pretty cool huh?

Anyway it's Inktober.

Entry 297: Blast From the Past- part 26

In 2005, after I did the King Kong 8th Wonder of the World Mini Book, Dark Horse asked if I wanted to draw the adaptation for the upcoming Peter Jackson King Kong movie. I said yes. I like Peter Jackson and I was looking forward to that Kong movie. I'd heard doing movie licence stuff could be a pain, but I thought, "how bad could it be?"

Entry 296: Paklis 1 Reviews

PAKLIS #1 is out and the response is positive.  I really had no idea what people would think of the first issue. It could have gone ether way in my mind. I'm glad it's going the way it has.

Issue 2 hits stores very soon. June 28 to be exact. I'm really happy with it. I think it's my best work.

If you haven't picked up issue 1 yet, see if you can find a copy and get on board for issue 2.

Here are some of the reviews so far:

Multiversity Comics Paklis  Review
"With three distinct stories, each as engaging and exciting as the last, “Paklis” #1 blows everything else off the shelves."

Comicosity Paklis Review
"...[Weaver] is a storytelling force to be reckoned with."

Bleeding Cool
"The First Page Of Dustin Weaver’s Paklis Is There To Screw With Your Head."

Nerdophiles Paklis Review
"Paklis #1 is a clear, uncut look at one of American comics’ most fascinating, idiosyncratic artists and that’s something that demands attention."
Talking Comicbook Paklis Review
"...[Paklis is] experimental, requiring some work from its reader, and really good."

Adventures In Poor Taste
"Paklis #1 feels like the indie corner of the comic shop has found its way onto the big stage."
Comic Buzz
"Paklis #1 is a great start for an Anthology book."
Paste Magazine
"Overall, this is an impressive first issue with consistently exquisite, ethereal art."

Entry 295: PAKLIS #1

I'm finally entering into the world of creator-owned-comics. This MAY you'll be able to get the first issue of PAKLIS. Here's the description:
Do you accept the life you've been handed, or do you step into the unknown, even as it leads you into the shadows?

Image Comics is pleased to introduce PAKLIS—a new anthology series from writer/artist Dustin Weaver—where the characters in three mind-bending stories find themselves faced with dark, existential questions that will haunt readers.
 "My influences on this series range from Kafka to Miyazaki. The Twilight Zone, Aeon Flux cartoons, and the comics of Moebius and Otomo are all major touchstones," said Weaver.
In “MUSHROOM BODIES,” Greg struggles with knowing what’s real and fears becoming complacent in a world of human insects.
In the first installment of “SAGITTARIUS A*,” war hero Linus Rad is on a mission to the center of the galaxy to learn the dark secrets of his dead father’s scientific experiments.
In the first chapter of “AMNIA CYCLE,” Tara, a young Jet-Wing pilot, goes AWOL in the war against the Nuriel in order to help Amnia, a mysterious alien with no memory of where she came from and a desperate need to stop a terrible disaster! When Amnia disappears, it sends Tara on an adventure into the Shadow Zone.
 Step into the unknown. Journey into the shadows. There you’ll find PAKLIS.
PAKLIS #1 (Diamond Code MAR170691) hits stores on Wednesday, May 31st. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 8th.

Entry 294: Blast From the Past - Part 25

This is the short King Kong entry before the long King Kong entry. The simple and pleasant entry before the frustrating mess entry. The calm entry before the storm entry.

Entry 293: ECCC 2017 Commissions

Last time I had a table at a convention was in 2013. At that time I decided that I wasn't going to do another convention until I had a book of my own to promote. And with my creator owned series, PAKLIS, coming out this May, I finally have reason to get back on the comic convention train. So this year I went up to my favorite con, Emerald City ComicCon in Seattle, and of course I did some commissions. There's one just up above, and here are some more.
