"Kenn & Clarence,
I just picked up a copy of your book The Experts at a comic shop here in Connecticut!
I very much enjoyed it!! I don't buy many comics, as a matter of fact I haven't bought one in 8 years!
I was at Buried Under Comics pluggin' my web comic The Kosmix, and saw it on a rack. I was a huge Mike Allred, and it was Clarence Pruitt's Allredesque style cover that hooked me! His artwork is tremendous!! It is understated, yet complex. Yes... it is Mike Allred like, but stripped down a step further, and with shades of Bruce Timm!!!
The writing was exceptional as well. Fast paced, and a nice homage (with modern sensibilities) to a day when comics were actually fun!!!
And you ink too! WOW!!
Please let me know when a new book is scheduled to come out, and you can count on a sale from me!!

Just so you know, mine and Clarence Pruitt's "the Experts #1" is currently available in comic shops nationwide... it came out last week. Check your favorite store to see if they have it. If they don't, it will always be available from our online shop at comixpress.com (along with "the Experts #2). Please see the links on the right sidebar of this blog.
I've taken to browsing for cool indie comics when I go to my local
comics shop each week, looking for good stuff to inspire me as I work on my
own book. Last week I picked up a copy of "The Experts" and was so
impressed that I bought two copies and sent one off to my collaborator to
check out. It's cool to see an indie book look so professional right out
of the gate, and the Incredo-Lad story was pretty damn funny.
Kudos on that cover too! Really good things going on with the colors
and design there!
(Oh, side note -- I found your book at Forbidden Planet in NYC, in case
you're curious about that sort of thing.)
I also saw your comiXpress ad on the back and was curious what you
thought about them, as I was planning on trying them out. Would you mind me
using your name as a referrer?
Anyway, cool book and I wish you luck with it. If you ever want to talk
shop, drop me a line. I'm hoping to have an ashcan teaser issue for my
book done within the month.

My name is Frankie B. Washington and I'm planning on
debuting my comic book, FBW Peace March 2007, thru
Comixpress. I'm a freelance illustrator living in
Massachusetts and totally understand the passion and
drive to get a comic book series out.
I've already drawn up to four books and now I have to
letter them as well. It's time consuming but the
reward of completing the dream is so worth it.
When I first saw the covers for The Experts I was
immediately drawn to them. I was nervous that when I
opened the book the art and story would not be upto
Least to say that I was and still amazed by the rich,
humorous storytelling and kick-ass artwork.
It definitely lends to b/w and color which is the
ideal medium all books should aspire for.
I really hope when FBW Peace is released it is able to
be on that level as well.
Definitely stop by my webpage and sign the
guestbook if you like.

Maybe. You'll have to pick up "the Experts" #3 to find out what all the hub-bub is about.
These are costume designs that I created to send to the penciller. Wait til you see the finished pencils by Jason Cheeseman-Meyer... YOW!
Wait-a-second? Who's Jason Cheeseman-Meyer?
