The Inspiration

Have you guys subscribed to Ed Brubaker’s (From the desk of Ed Brubaker) mailing list? If you’re into his stuff, you really should.

Brubaker (Captain America; the crime noir book Criminal; and—my favorite of the lot—Kill or Be Killed, etc.) is one of the industries foremost comic book writers to make use of the mailing list medium wherein he gets to puts out the online content that he wants to an equally interested audience.

That’s sort of the dream isn’t it?

Enter: Substack.com

Well, with the help of Substack.com platform, I hope to give subscribers similar updates on my latest collaborations, release dates, giveaways (yes! giveaways!), and by the last quarter of this year: The anticipated return of The Tedi31.com Podcast!

At the time of this writing, I have four comic book artists and writers lined up for interviews—so watch out for Pods in the near future.

Sold Out!

Although an unofficial count, I believe the posters of Lindol Issue #1, Issue #2, and Issue #3 along with OBIsessions Issue #1 are completely sold out!

The limited edition posters were promotional giveaways during the release of each book.

Were you lucky enough to pick them up?

Final Edits on Lindol #4, OBIsessions #1, and my Big Bad Wolf Book Sale Haul Photo (February 28, 2019)

Clockwise: Chuck Palahniuk’s Legacy: An Off-Color Novella For You To Color (2017), Empress Book One HC (2017) [Stuart Immonen and Mark Millar], Survivors Club (2016) [Lauren Beukes], Melag (2016) [Bong Redila], Palahniuk’s Pygmy (2009), and Choke (2001).
We need more days!

This is a statement that the working class will agree with: We need more days in February!  Taking into account a possible leap year, those extra two or three days could mean the difference between a penalty or making a payment on-time.

Am I right!

Final Edits

Just sent in my final edits for Lindol #4 (with the award winning artist Randy Valiente) and my new book OBIsessions #1 (with Jann Galino).

If everything is in the can we should start printing by the middle of March and be ready of the April 13 launch during Summer Komikon 2019!

Writing a Promo for Lindol #4 (February 6, 2019)

Harder than it looks

I’ve been staring at my laptop’s screen for a couple of hours now trying to hammer out a proper back cover promo to promote our latest issue of Lindol.  The promo will be featured on the back cover of another upcoming book called OBIsessions.

Both books are slated to be release during Summer Komikon 2019 (April 13, 2019 | 10:00 am to 8:00 pm).

Sample advertisement:

Between the cracks of a world wrought by intermittent earthquakes,

rises a far more immediate threat…

A human one.

The enigmatic group known as The Klimcha have captured and imprisoned Dash, Cam, and Grey.

Is this the end for our band of survivors?

Find out in Issue #4

Out in April 2019

 

This is The New World.

Welcome to…

Lindol

Verdict

So what do you guys think?  Would you give the book a shot after reading this promo?

Let me know 🙂

OBIsessions: The Indie Comic Book (April 10, 2017)

The OBIsessions creative team of Tedi Villasor (writer) and Jann Galino (artist).

Really excited with my collaboration with the incredibly talented Jann Galino on our creator-owned project entitled OBIsessions.  It is slated for release on August 31, 2017.

Giving Powers a chance (April 8, 2017)

My copy of Powers Volume 2: Role-play

While on an out-of-town trip with some friends, we decided to stop by SM City San Pablo for lunch.  It was our first time there and SM sure made the most of their lot.  They had their staple department store and grocery sections but only an exiguous number of restaurants.

The good thing though is that SM City San Pablo did manage to squeeze in a small branch of Booksale among their many lessees.  Highest marks SM!  Anyway, I found a copy of Powers Volume 4: Supergroup and Volume 5: Anarchy[i] and decided to pick them up largely because of the Powers double-splash page homage that writer Joshua Williamson and artist Mike Henderson put into Nailbiter #7[ii].

What then is Powers?  To be honest, I didn’t know much past it being a Brian Michael Bendis book.  It turns out that Bendis and Powers artist Michael Avon Oeming use a very generous–and I do mean generous–amount of panels to convey a scene.

I think by the time I am done reading these Powers books, I’d have my own Powers homage layout in mind for a future issue of ObIsessions.

[i] The following day, I found and purchased Powers Volume 2: Role-play in Booksale’s V-Mall branch.  Anyone know where I can get my hands on Volume 1: Who Killed Retro Girl and Volume 3: Little Deaths? This is a nice little quest since I don’t usually buy physical TPB’s anymore.  You know, lack of space and all.
[ii] If you haven’t read that issue yet, put down what your doing right now and read Nailbiter.  Their 30-issue run ended last March 2017.
