Releasing the Vortex book was my second biggest accomplishment of 2014. (The biggest was getting my daughter to sleep in her crib. Neither would have been possible without the help of my wife.) Thanks again to everyone who supported the Sparkplug Books Kickstarter! Virginia is sending out your copies of Vortex and I’m working on the 3d print and original art rewards. If you missed out on the Kickstarter but would still like a copy, it’s for sale in the Sparkplug web store and in Austin at Farewell Books and Austin Books. I’ll sell copies on this site once I finish my part of the Kickstarter rewards.
I did this drawing of my wife and daughter for my father-in-law’s Kickstarter reward.
Here’s some press that Vortex got in the tail end of 2014:
- Rob McMonigal included Vortex on Panel Patter’s November Small Press Picks
- Colin Panetta said that Vortex probably would’ve made his favorite comics of 2014 list if he’d gotten a chance to read it
- Cameron Arthur put Vortex in his Top 10 Comics of 2014 list
- Gabriele Di Fazio reviewed Vortex for Just Indie Comics and then put it in his Best Comics of 2014 list
If you’ve read Vortex, please consider rating or reviewing it on Goodreads.
