Blakbone in Print!

23 Jul

Last summer, so many of our supporters pitched in to help give 1134 Press/1134 Comix a jump start. It worked out great, and we were able to meet almost all of our goals since then. We began production on a printed collection of 1134 Comix web comics, and a few months ago were able to publish the book! It can be found here, and soon will be available at our own shop. Speaking of our own shop, there are still limited copies of Gestalt available there–check it out if you don’t have a copy!

Now, we are very close to finishing the next printed Blakbone story. See some of the penciled pages below:

This book features a bunch of our supporters as characters–and they all have important roles in the story! Unfortunately, you can’t see many of them in the above photo (sorry about that). The book is 22 pages long – a regular size comic book – and page 20 is currently being drawn. We hope to have this published by the end of summer/early fall. That said, these this things always take longer than we hope …

Keep a lookout for The Outer Space Adventures of Blakbone, where you will see our favorite anti-hero travel the cosmos and, with the help of a new cast of characters, face one of his old enemies!

Blakbone is in Print!

21 Apr

After quite a process, followed by quite a wait, The Adventures of Blakbone is finally available at Indy Planet!

We want to thank all of our supporters who helped make it possible to create this collection. And on that note, the art for the next Blakbone comic is well underway. We are shooting for a summertime release. The next story features some of our favorite readers–look for them in the pages of next issue!

What do you Think?

11 Jan

As we dot our Is and cross our Ts in preparation to send The Adventures of Blakbone and Other Stories to the printer, we’ve been brainstorming the next web-comic. We’ve come up with two ideas that we like. The working titles are, Pussies of Tomorrow and Shifty Elephant. This is were you come in.

What would you rather see become the next 1134 web-comic?

A) Pussies of Tomorrow

This web-comic would follow a group of spacefaring cats. They would go on adventures full of zaniness and enough cat themed jokes to make you puke.

Or,

B) Shifty Elephant

This web-comic would be a detective story featuring, you guessed it, a shifty elephant. It would follow (for the most part) a standard detective noir  story structure and would definitely make use of as many tropes as possible.

As we work on the next chapter of Blakbone (The Outer Space Adventures of Blakbone), we will be checking our responses to this poll here and on social media. We hope to have the next Blakbone story out by summer time; after which we plan to start the next web-comic series.

So, coming up at 1134 Comix:

  1. The Adventures of Blakbone and Other Stories (the official, final release date will be announced this month!)
  2. The Outer Space Adventures of Blakbone (Planning to release the full story in print by summer ’18)
  3. Either Shifty Elephant, or Pussies of Tomorrow (web-comic to start by Summer ’18

Note: Character designs are not final

Coming up for 1134 Comix / Press

4 Nov

Hello everybody,

First off, we’d like to again thank all of our supporters. We have a number of exciting things on the horizon that you helped make possible. The following are a handful of the things that we have in the works for the few months or so:

  1. There is a trade paper back size book in the works. It is a collection of the entire Blakbone story, from the very beginning to the most previous installment. It also collects most of the other web-comics published by 1134 Comix (and previous incarnations) over the years. The book is almost complete and near ready for print!
  2. This was mentioned months ago, but still hasn’t happened yet: 1134 Comix will be updating. Soon, you will be able to read the comics in a much more traditional and user friendly way. Keep a lookout for that.
  3. The next arc of Blakbone will begin. This story will continue his adventure into outer space. It will also feature our supporters! The story and art is in production now and a completed (regular comic size) book is planned for this winter (early 2018).

That all said, with the exception of an already planned update to Blakbone, there will be very few new web-comics posted on the site for the next handful of weeks.  They will be back later this year with regular updates–and the stories will be going in a whole new direction!

Thanks for reading!

In Her Boudoir: An 1134 Press Journal Collection

15 Oct

 

This collection of handmade journals, Boudoir, was inspired by Victorian grandeur and kitschy eclectic styles. From images of decadent furniture, traditional portraits and jewels, I not only wanted to capture what I saw happening in fashion this fall, but to create journals that inspired me to write.

Of late, I’ve been thinking about the intersection of the act of journaling and the physical journal. Aside from the journal being a place to jot down ideas and observations, and its use a therapeutic tool, there is something about journaling that is sensual. What you doodle, or write in your journal are presumably for the self—like an act of cognitive masturbation. When thinking about my personal journaling in those terms, I wanted to create a journal that created a romantic atmosphere. Thus, in this collection there are rich pinks, deep blues, golds, and floral patterns that adorn the covers. Boudoir is nothing short of feminine. The choice to use images of furniture grounds the journals in a home of magnificence.

In perfect travel size, you can take romance and extravagance with you everywhere.

This was originally printed as a very small run of mini-comics. Who knows, maybe you’ll get your hands on one of the print versions one day . . .

Keep an eye out for a new Blakbone Halloween–coming soon!

Also, a special thanks to our supporters! Because of you, we will be upgrading this site very soon. We will also be putting out some print editions for our favorite Rock n’ Roll demon, Blakbone!
