Latest Update #10

At last! It is done. After a year and a half of production I'm pleased to announce that Issue 1 of Get Woke is now complete. It's been a long process which has pretty much consumed most of my spare time (which ain't much) and really hampered any other comic creating tasks. But it's done. 36 pages are draw, coloured and lettered, and the cover is complete. No inners have been done yet but it really all depends what we are doing with the comic. I have an amazing product, now I've got to figure out the best way to sell it!

Get Woke's awesome artist, Kevin McCullough, is keen to explore the professional publishing route so our first step will be to compile some pitch material (comic samples, synopses, etc) and send it to a few serious comic companies. I'm currently in the process of doing this but making sure I get it right is slowing me down. I've been waiting ages for the finished article and now it's arrived I'm all WTF do I do now. It's a new and exciting chapter.

If pro-publishing fails we'll take the Kickstarter route. This has become a thoroughly acceptable way to release a comic and there are plenty of examples of success stories that give hope that we can achieve our goal of getting the comic out in to the big wide world.

Whatever happens next is going to be thrilling. You're welcome to come along for the ride.
