Who's ready for Free Comic Book Day?

I know I am!


If you don't know what free comic book day is, It's a day where all (or at least most) of the comic book shops in North America (and many around the word) give away comics for free!

It's Saturday May 3rd 2014
I'll be signing comics, selling my creator owned comics Shadows of Oblivion and Dalrak the Mighty, and doing sketches all day long!

If you'd like to meet me and get some free comics, then on May 3rd just go to:
BLACK FOREST COMICS
688 WHITLOCK AVE NW, Suite 600
MARIETTA, GA 30064

If you don't live anywhere near Marietta, Georgia but you still want to get some free comic books, then go to freecomicbookday.com and enter in your zip code.  They'll give you a list of participating comic book shops that are near you. So go get some free comics!

I hope to see everyone next week!

And if you like the work I do, and want to help support more then get yourself some comics!

Shadows con appearances

Gear, WarAngel, Cerberus and all your favorite Shadows of Oblivion characters are have been confirmed to be at at least 3 conventions this year! But we're working on being at more! (I'm hoping to attend at least 3 more before the year is out.)

Right now the confirmed cons are:

March 15th and 16th: MGA in Macon, GA mgacon.com/
May 23-25th: Animazement in Raleigh, NC www.animazement.com/

Is anyone interested in buying advertising space on Shadows of Oblivion's website?

The banner size is will be 16 pixels by 600 pixels and will appear on the front page of the Shadows of Oblivion page. (you can see the google ad there now.) shadowsofoblivion.shawnmccaule…

The cost is slightly more $1.50 a day and if interested we can talk about how long you'd want the ad to run. 

If your interested email me at shadows@shawnmccauley.com with "advertising" in the subject.

I know most of you are fans that can barely afford to buy my comics, let alone buy ad space.  But I figure I'd let you guys know it was an option.
Hey Everyone!

It looks like more than half of your want me to put together a sketchbook of the sketch covers I've done for Shadows of Oblivion.  Which is great!  So I started putting them together and realized I have a small problem....

Many MANY sketches I've done involve one of my characters with one of your OC's.  So I need your permission to use the art involving your characters for commercial use. (aka putting it in a sketchbook and selling it.)

I'm doing this as a courtesy, as I think it'd be rude to use your characters for commercial gain without your permission despite myself owning the copyright of the art.

So if I did a sketch cover for you involving your Original Character, and you'd like to see it in my compilation sketch book.  Leave me a comment on this journal thread, or a private note giving me permission to use it, and I'll put it in the book!

Thanks Everyone!

Hey everyone! I just had a fantastic time at Yama-Con this past weekend, and I can't wait to visit you in future con!

The next one I'll be at is MGA Comic Con in Macon, Ga March 15th and 16h.

But I'm always interested in spreading my convention appearances!  I'm still a poor  creator so I can't fly all around the country just yet, but if you have a favorite con in the South Eastern USA that you'd love me to visit, let me know!  I'll look into it, and if budget and schedule permits, I'll be there!

So let me know!!
I had the most awesome time!

Thank you to everyone who visited me!  I plan on returning next year if my schedule will allow me!

But for now, I have comics to make....
