I'm pissed that I haven't been able to watch the Russian hockey team play yet, but I will soon enough.
Ovechkin is amazing. I'd have to say my favorite EVER. That's a bold statement considering that I grew up watching Gretzky play.
Spence made some changes to the price and the ECCC logo, but this is basically the cover. He did a damn fine job. I think we're all glad to be done with it, but we learned a lot and we're proud of the finished product. The 2nd printing will be even better!
This morning on my way to work I thought up this idea; I'd keep track of all my music today and post it here. No matter what music popped up, I wouldn't edit it. Take it or leave it. I honestly can't believe that more metal didn't come up. I've got all of the Zeppelin albums on there too and not a one. Hmm, Strange.
Well, okay, I suppose giving me shit is warranted... so, enjoy.

The cover is like another story added to the anthology. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am with it. Brian bounced a couple of different ideas off of us, but I'm really glad he settled on this one. Dave's colors bring it all together.
Here's a look at a couple of pages for my contribution to the 8AM anthology. Since the story is only 6 pages, I don't want to give away too much. This is the 1st and 4th page. Spence did a great job.
We were all sitting around one night after recording an episode for the podcast and I shared my idea for a series with all the guys. They seemed to really like my story. As we talked about it, Spence came up with the idea to publish our own book to showcase some local talent. What started as a small local idea soon became international as we collaborated with our friends at Accent UK.
This version of PROPHECY is a very slender version of what my idea for a full-blown series would be. I originally wanted to name it THE GODKILLERS, but the title just wouldn't fit with the small amount of information that we share in 6 pages. If it were ever published, I would stick with the original title.
