Another of the variant covers/posters for Dave: The Finale, this one by Australia’s own Dave Heinrich. Having someone like Dave work on our our mad little comic has been a total thrill! I mean how awesome is that pan wielding Father Monty??
As to where the final volume is? Tim’s finally free from an overwhelming work schedule and 2012 is gonna happen. We’ll both be appearing at SupaNova in Melbourne in April and likely Oz-ComicCon in Adelaide. So if you’re keen to get a sketch, buy Part One or simply say hi then please do so. Once we know all the details we’ll post them up here!
Alternate Cover for Dave II by artist Jason Steen.
I’ve been going back over Dave and taking a second look at pages I wasn’t entirely happy with. Towards the end of last year as I was putting it all together, I must admit to being a bit burnt out from viewing the same images over and over and reading my own jokes repeatedly (even if they did and do, still make me laugh out loud)
I kinda felt like the last few pages of the first half (Book One) didn’t perhaps get as much love as they deserved. The screen grab here is a re-working of the second to last page, upping the impact of Trevors mighty punch and re-inserting some panels that got (stupidly) left on the cutting room floor at the time. I mean LOOK at that last panel from Tim, it’s sheer bloody magic!!
More awesome to come (including new art from the second half real soon, right Timothy Bruce Ide?)
Dave: Zombie Hunter Book Two.
Variant Cover A by Stewart Cook.
Release date is still to be confirmed.
Free Comic Book Day. AW YEAH!
Work in progress on the FCBD Operation: Gehanna cover. We’re completely remastering it from it’s original printing. The dialogue and layout have been touched up and it will be printed in a SUPER SIZED format. AW YEAH!
If you want a copy of this book then email email@example.com and reserve a copy (limit of one per person/email). It’s completely FREE (although you will need to pay for postage), alternately you can get yourself down to Pulp Fiction Comics on FCBD on May 7th and pick one up!
I’ve just finished the script for Book Two and emailed it off to Tim.
Once he’s had a chance to digest, we’ll probably sit down and block it out together. From there Tim will then begin drawing in earnest.
Also we’re putting a remastered version of Operation: Gehanna together for Free Comic Book Day in May. If you’re in Adelaide you’ll be able to get this for free at Pulp Fiction Comics. If there’s any left over afterwards, I’ll be offering them for a very nominal fee here on the Dave blog for anyone that wants a copy in print
In the process of putting things together, bits and pieces get left behind. This awesome panel was (unfortunately) cut from the first book for space reasons. But there’s WAY too much Tim awesomeness here not to show off. Enjoy!
Shane Cummings of NecroScope (the zombie ‘corner’ of parent site Horror Scope) recently reviewed issue one of Dave: Zombie Hunter. You can check out his thoughts here. Personally I think it’s a great review (criticisms and all). Shane heaps praise on Tim’s artwork and as a huge fan of Tim’s, It’s great to see him get some recognition as one of Australia’s finest illustrators.
