This month in "FYI", we will continue to take a look behind the scenes of
the up and coming comic, "Underground to Nowhere". With the publication
deadline coming closer, the anticipation for issue #1 is on the rise.
As of this month, the production of the first installment is in full
swing. Montoya has also reportedly finished his rough draft script for
issue #2, but it is only the first draft. He will most likely rewrite it
at least two or three times (but, let's hope it won't be like issue one,
which he ended up rewriting seven times!) before he hands it over to
Scheerer, for editing.
The only thing that we are getting out of the P.R. (Public Relations)
crew, is that Montoya is saying issue Two is action packed, with a twist
at the end that will leave the readers screaming for the third and final
issue. We have also learned that Montoya has completed a quarter of the
drawings for issue One and Lofgren has been given some test pages to warm
up on. So, by the time she receives the actual pages that she will be
inking, she will be ready to start the real deal.
Eletrik Lettering Ltd. has reported it has purchased a new font program
that will be used specifically for the "Underground to Nowhere" mini
series. This is the first time Eletrik Lettering has obtained an outside
program, as they are well known for their custom designed fonts.
The last bit of information for this month is the issue of contracting a
printer. Many may not know this, but Montoya has been checking out a
other printing companies, looking for the absolute lowest price, so he
can pass along the savings to his readers. But, as of right now, it
looks like Lulu Press
will still land the deal.
So, that's it for us here at "FYI". Come back next time as we join in on
the "Underground to Nowhere" count down and continue to give you the
latest insight on the comic production.
