Greetings D.A.R.T. technicians:
We have a few announcements today which are , very exciting.
First, Fulfillment: D.A.R.T Membership cards and Molly Danger t-shirts are now at the printers and should be delivered to all backers by the end of October, four months earlier than I was originally thinking it would be. The unfortunate demise of my involvement with the Historians has become a win-win for us all.
I would also like to announce the addition of my new Editor, Adam P.Knave,
to the Molly Danger family.
Adam is an Eisner and Harvey Award winning writer and editor who has written fiction (CRAZY LITTLE THINGS, STRANGE ANGEL, and STAYS CRUNCHY IN MILK), comics (AMELIA COLE, THINGS WRONG WITH ME, stories in TITMOUSE MOOK vol 2, FIRESIDE MAGAZINE issue 1, and many more), and columns for sites such as thefoonote, TwoHeadedCat, Comics101, PopCultureShock, and MamaPop. He was also one of the editors of Image’s POPGUN anthology.
I’m really excited about having someone with Adam’s pedigree and skill set assisting me in bringing Molly to life. I think it only strengthens us and will hopefully make Molly Danger the best graphic album series possible.
And Finally, I’ll be appearing at New York Comic Con from October 11th-14th at Artist Alley table C-1. A full signing schedule will be coming in the next few weeks.

Greetings D.A.R.T. technicians:
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve spoken to you as a group. Since the end of our successful Kickstarter campaign and I’ve been hard at work the entire time. Production on some of the offered incentives is underway and should be delivered soon.
As some of you know, I recently announced a project that I was preparing to do for IDW publishing. Unfortunately, circumstances have recently changed and Ron Marz and myself have exited the project. I still have a great relationship with Ron and the staff at IDW, and look forward to a healthy future with all parties involved.
So you may ask, what does this have to do with the price of coffee?
Well you may not be asking that, but you know that thought pops into your head once in a while.
What this means, is that instead of waiting to until the Spring to begin working on Molly Danger book one, I’ll start drawing the book in October of this year and will be looking to have the Kickstarter exclusive version of the book in your hands by July of 2013, instead of the originally projected October release.
