Hey guys,
I’m getting ready to launch my first title, so I wanted to start a thread to drop some art and general progress updates. I’m new to the world of creating comics, but my artist and I have already completed issue one, and we also have a short companion piece slated to run in an anthology later this summer. We’ll be doing some local cons to help get the word out, and going from there.

You can also find us on facebook for more info here (http://www.facebook.com/gnawcomic/)

When random animal attacks rapidly transition into a full scale uprising, app developer Wil Evans holes up in his apartment- utterly ill equipped to survive the new status quo. With his dog Elvis by his side, and armed only with whatever supplies he can scrounge up in his trendy urban loft, Wil realizes that he’s going to have to put down the ipad and pick up some survival skills if he wants to make it in a world where so many have already been eaten alive… if only it was that simple.
Gnaw is a planned twelve part series by writer/creator Jennifer Dugan and artist Ryan Butt.

I love the pitch, and I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks so much James!

I'm really excited about this project. Its been bouncing around my head for a few years, but it took me a while to feel comfortable enough to dive into the world of creating comics. (My background is in books.)

Here's a peek at one of our squirrels, who play a crucial role in kicking things off when the animals start to turn.

It's been a little bit since I stopped by, so I wanted to give an update. We are hard at work on issue two, as well as a companion piece for an anthology- I should be able to post some art for that soon.

We had a great weekend at the con last month for our book release, and are amped to be heading to Terrificon next week to promote the book even more. Getting this out has definitely been a learning experience, but it's also been a ton of fun.

I wanted to drop off a little art here, while I had a second.
Here's a panel of the book's protagonist Wil, when he's chased by an animal for the first time at the start of the attacks.
