The once and future worklog

Ever since the “Liquification” of Virgin Comics things have been a bit light on the writing front. So I decided to take some time off to focus more on life especially my daughter, Adya.

I just sent in a script for a graphic novel commisioned by an indian publisher about the legend of Abhimanyu from the Mahabharata. So I end 2008 with a clean slate.

What’s in store for 2009?

Well there’s Mumbai Confidential , my creator owned crime-noir series set in the city of Mumbai (duh!). 😛 Also have started putting together a few pitches as the conn season opens with NYCC in first week Feb ’09. There is a full length OGN project called SYZYGY that was in discussion with Archaia Studio Press around last SDCC, but in light of the restructuring there decided to wait till things settle down before bugging Mark Smylie (owner of ASP and all around awesome guy!) with it. So first half of 2009 will see that in full swing too.

There pitches and feelers/schmoozes pending with some other companies, which hopefully will translate into gigs in 2009.

So all in looking forward to a fruitful 2009 and while I’m at it — a happy new year to you and yours.

Back from SDCC '08

Just reached home. This time the conn was a bit depressing for me for various reasons, most prominently being away from my daughter Adya. But some cool stuff did happen, will post more as it crystallizes into something worthwhile 🙂

Meanwhile thanks to AD Lewis, I have two photos from SDCC.
