Welcome to The Tibari Outpost
The Tibari are a group of beings that Originate from a small world known as ZanTibar. Decades ago, ZanTibar was attacked and most of it’s resources were taken. In order to restore and maintain their world the leaders of ZanTibar, the High Council, created the SPECTRE program. The SPECTRE are Tibari Teams who’s primary mission is to explore the various sectors of space in order to find resources from uninhabited worlds. Their secondary mission is to find the beings that ravaged their world and put a stop to their destructive ways. Hundreds of SPECTRE teams have been deployed to explore the various sectors of space. Each team occupies an outpost within the sector they are exploring.
The Tibari Outpost is the small moon base called Mineta located in the Kwari Sector. Spark & his Team use Mineta as their base of operations while they explore the Kwari Sector.
I’ve been hard at work trying to finish up Spectre: Chasing Shadows when all of a sudden, I decided to switch gears on how I am going to release my work. First, I decided to color the comic. I think it looks much better in color and gives a lot of life to the characters. Next, I decided that I can break the book down into 4 chapters and create individual issues out of the book. If I decided to put a collection together of all four issues, I have a full graphic novel. I am also preparing to send out a query to a literary agent to see if they would be interested in representing my work. A lot is going on, and I hope the hard work pays off soon.
I seem to have forgotten to post an update in January…that’s fine. It gave me more time to get more of the book done. I’ve got 80 pages inked and 17 pages completed. I’ve spoken to a book distributor of mine and he suggested getting a literary agent to help me. I’m going to look into it. It could really help me get my foot in the door of some publishers. I post lots of updates on the book on Twitter, so click here to check my feed: Mike Twitter.
The inking has been going swiftly. I’m wrapping up page 52. I’ve also completed 12 pages of computer editing. I’ve had some feedback on the rough draft of the book and was compelled to eliminate a page and rewrite some of the dialogue. I think it will help the story move along better. That’s all I’ve been fousing on lately. Though I need to get back into writing the second half of this story which will become book 3, tentatively titled Spectre: Rogue Asteriod.
I’ve been working really hard to get my inking done for Spectre: Chasing Shadows. I’m simultaneously writing the outline for the 3rd Book, Spectre: Rogue Asteriod. Or at least, that is what I’m calling it. I’ve been making some good progress and am a little ahead of schedule. I’ve inked 31 1/2 pages in a little more than a month. I’ve also finished 6 pages. Meaning, I’ve cleaned them up in the computer and added some of the effects that I can’t draw by hand. I’ve also started researching some kids book publishers so that I can submit my book to a publisher that might help me. The goal is to be finished with the next Spectre Book in about 4-5 months from now. Hopefull less.
The Ucreate Comics competition ended up being a disaster. The people running the contest made blunder after blunder while running it. The worst part is, I was legitimately in first place for the first 2 weeks before some people who were allowed to trade votes blew past me. Aside from that, I finally gave a title to the next Spectre Book. Spectre: Chasing Shadows is the next installment. I have finished final pencils. Did my first pass at editing and I am now ready to Ink. And even more exciting, Jeff Smith started following me on Twitter yesterday…See the article I wrote about him here.
Just entered my Spectre Comics Concept into a Competition called Ucreate Comics Pitch 100. Currently tied for first place and this is a battle…Need your vote! Click to vote for Spectre Comics. You’ll need to register to vote, but it only takes a minute to sign up.
