The Fear goes Overseas

Ghost-Brazil-1I wanted to share with the two of you who are actually reading this blog something very cool that recently happened to me. I’ve been published overseas. To be more precise, one of my short stories (specifically the story of mine that is going to appear in Psychosis! #2) has already appeared in a comicbook in Brazil.
Now, I haven’t seen it as of yet, but the artist, Fabio Turbay is from Brazil, and sent me a link to where the book is appearing on the Web. He also sent me a couple of copies of the comic itself, and although it hasn’t arrived, I’m as giddy as a schoolgirl!
To be sure, several years ago I had some reviews of mine published in a Canadian computer magazine, but this is simply way more cool. Ghost-Brazil-2

How it happened is kind of fun. You see, the artist , Fabio Turbay is a comicbook artist from Brazil, and he came to the U.S. to find comicbook work. Well, Fabio somehow hooked up with the Comicbook Artist Guild (of which I am a member), and then got assigned to illustrate my story.

Ghost-1When Fabio returned to Brazil, he (with my approval) submitted the story to a Brazilian publication, and, well, you can see the results. These pages are the first two pages in Portuguese, while the following two pages are those same two pages in English.

Psychosis! #2 is due out at the end of this month and I know that I — for one — am quite literally, chomping at the bit to see this story in print. Like my story for issue #1, I feel that it will (hopefully) take you by surprise.

A little while ago, I presented one of the four covers for Psychosis #2, a second cover appears here. Like last time there are a total of four covers for this issue. Wait until you see the one that illustrates my story. It will blow you away. It did me.

Psychosis! #2

Here’s an update folks. I just yesterday received the actual comic from Fabio, and it is wonderful! Now Fabio is telling me that he wants to re-publish it again down there, along with some of his other friends in sort of a CAG-Brazil. How cool is that?

I've got a friend in Portugal who is a MAJOR Spider-Man fan.

I think the numbering and ordering were different there so it took a while for us to figure out which stories he's not read while looking through Spiderfan together.

I think they put stories from diff. books (maybe 3 or so) in one issue so when he knew of all the diff. titles that were over here, it was "ARGH!" time.

A Comicbook Artist Guild in Brazil sounds neat...well, okay, it's frickin' badass!!!

And by two people reading this, I hope you're not counting yourself. *Crickets*

Congratulations though!!!
