Table theft.

Jessi did a great job of conveying just how awkward this dinner is becoming. I, on the other hand, still feel a bit green with the whole lettering thing. Hopefully it came out all right!

0

Dinner interrogation.

The many family photos on the wall of the Galindo dining room were just to awesome to cover up with lettering, so this was my first attempt at bridging a lot of balloons together. Hopefully it came out all right!

Also, I still can’t get over the expressions in panel four. Pure. Gold.

ANYWAY. Come see Jessi and I this weekend during Alamo City Comic Con at table C35! We’ll have issue 1 for sale, along with posters, prints, and other goodies. This is our last con for the year, so if you want to get your hands on Musings merch before that holiday season, this is your last chance.

And let’s be honest, Musings would make a great stocking-stuffer.

Straight. Up. Creepin’.

Bit of inside scoop for you: I lettered this page. And I will be lettering all the pages from now on. So if you think I did a good job, or if you think it sucks, let me know and I will be happy or sad as needed.

I really love Jessi’s work on the three mystery ladies on this page. In only three tiny panels, she shows you what they’re about flawlessly.

We’re back!

I hope you guys are as excited about this issue as I am. Buckle up, because this issue has suits, cell phones, monsters, chase scenes, awkward dinners, and dads. You heard me right. DADS.

Guest art update featuring Sage Coffey

Sage Coffey and I met about a month ago, in a hotel bar during HeroesCon. While watching a dude get escorted out by three Firemen and an EMT, I got a chance to check out some of the samples she had with her. At first glance Sage’s work reminded me so much of Jessi’s own that I texted her immediately, claiming to have found her “Art Doppelganger”.

Since then I’ve had the chance to further explore Sage’s stuff, both by buying her awesome story Italian Crisis (which is like the Italian Job but with frozen treats) and checking out her Twitter and Tumblr. Her artwork is a wonderful blend of concise lines paired with exaggerated expressions, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

I mean just look at the piece she did for us. Look at it. Holy guacamole you guys. If I could do a Fear and Loathing story with Musings I would in a heartbeat. But until that promised day arrives, this will easily suffice.

See you next week,
Matt

Guest art update featuring Jamie Kinosian

To fill the short lull between issues one and two, we’ll be running some Musings related stuff drawn by people other than Jessi. Up first is our dear friend Jamie Kinosian! I met Jamie last year though Jessi, and we instantly bonded over a whole mess of awesome nerdy stuff. She’s an incredibly talented artist, and I urge you all to go check out her work. I mean just look at this…I don’t think we’ll ever truly pull off a Musings story in an established comic universe for fear of MASSIVE LEGAL DESTRUCTION, but just seeing Alyssa and M zooming through space with lantern rings is more than enough. Thanks, Jamie!

See you next week,
Matt

But stay tuned, because issue two is just around the corner.

Until next week,
