So, the original plan was to roll this out five pages a day. Well, I just finished lettering the book and have decided to push the pages out for YOU a little bit quicker, one full chapter everyday. That is 22-24 pages of comics a day for about a week and a half. So, sit back and enjoy because we’re just getting started.
If you don’t know who we are, my name is Martin John and the illustrator of Foreign Matter is German Ponce. We’ve been doing this for about four years now. We have a complete opus ready for you to consume, over 400 pages of content and we’re going to hit you with it hard and fast.
Foreign Matter is based on an idea that I had when I was eighteen and is the first piece of writing I ever completed. I’m proud of it, but you can see some of the birthing pains of our process. That said, I have just gone back in and re-edited and re-lettered the first half of Foreign Matter taking out a lot of useless exposition and dialogue that I just wasn’t feeling anymore. Yes, I George Lucas’ed this comic and I’m okay with that.
Future plans for this…I plan on bringing Foreign Matter to kickstarter in two volumes and later into a hardcover volume.
I urge you, stick with us, the story is a fun one, an entertaining one, and if you like us now, we get better later. There are some pages that German has drawn that are incredible. I hope that you enjoy the ride.
