On September 2nd – barring disaster – we’ll be beginning our second caper, “The Predators,” which is brand new and never been seen before in print or online. This one has been in the works for a long time, and I’m looking forward to seeing how people like it. It’s a very different type of tale from “The Scavengers,” with Digger finding himself in some seriously hot water down in steamy South Florida.
If that story proves popular, I’ve got a third caper in mind, tentatively titled “The Marauders,” which both Rick and I are eager to get to.
As to that “popularity,” we had a nice bump in traffic a few weeks ago, when comic writer/author (and Rick’s collaborator on Lady Sabre) Greg Rucka gave us a very kind plug, but I still think we could be doing a lot better. Our traffic has remained pretty steady since we launched in February, but hasn’t really been growing significantly.
Unfortunately, I don’t seem to have much of a knack for effective self-promotion; beyond posting weekly notices on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, I’ve had comparatively little success getting much attention for the comic. I’m going to keep trying, though!
You can help, too – if you dig Gravedigger, Rick and I would definitely appreciate you mentioning the comic on your own blogs, on appropriate message boards, and on Facebook and Twitter. Every little bit helps!
