If you didn't already know, I'm taking part in Small Press Idol 2009, which is really an entertaining experience so far! It's kind of like the American Idol of comic books having to do with the whole product, not just an artist or a writer. Round 1 is going on right now, so if you're interested, you can still join in the fun (links are below). If you don't want to join in the fun, go check out the competition this year, it looks to be really stiff! KT Gravatt and I are working together to get "Faction" published and we just got voted through to round 2 today, all three judges voted "yes". They had some things to say about the project, but nothing that can't be fixed. So go over and check it out!
If you make it through round 1, your "0" issue will get published as part of an anthology. If you make it through to round 4, your "0" issue gets published by itself. If you win the whole contest, you get a four issue mini-series published and prize money (a pot and then the majority of sales of the book less production costs and 10% I believe).
