:THANK-YOU: A Villainous note from the Artist

Greetings VILLAINS! Well it’s been quite a month down here at VILLAIN HQ, we have a slew of new updates for you. If you haven’t heard, I will be taking on ALL of the artistic duties of the book! Pencils, inks and colors will all be me from this point on. Larry and Luis were a great part of the book and on behalf of the rest of the team I would like to thank them for their hard work and dedication to the series. You haven’t seen the last of them though, I’m sure they’ll pop in from time to time with some kick-ass variant covers. Here are some of the updates:

Villain #3 is NOW FOR SALE in the brand new VILLAIN STORE

You can no longer read Issue 3 online. Please show your support and patronage and visit the store where you will also find VILLAIN 1-2, t-shirts and art prints.

On that note, we have a BRAND NEW STORE! Check it out!

Check out the new updates to the GALLERY, all variant covers have been added as well as convention sketches.

Check out the updated convention schedule, find out where we will be making appearances this year. We will be adding more shows as the year progresses.

We would like to send a special thank you to the sponsors of VILLAIN #3: Fantastic Collectibles in Manteca, Ca, Bakersfield Collector Con and Comic Grapevine in Lodi.

Speaking of Lodi! Alpha Q Comics and VILLAIN will be at Grape City Con Sunday, February 8, at the Grape Festival Grounds! The show is 10am – 4pm, come out to show your support! We’re headed back to our old stomping grounds! It will be the convention debut of issue 3! The villains will descend upon Lodi, you do not want to miss this show!

I know that you’ve been itching for more VILLAIN this month but I assure you that the payoff will be great. In February, we return to our regularly scheduled programming! VILLAIN is back to two pages a week! “How does he do it?” They ask. Because I’m a fucking VILLAIN!

There’s a lot going on at Alpha Q Comics and we will have more big news a little bit down the road. Please come out to see us and if you can’t and you’re just too far away, then please hit up the store and show your support by buying some quality comics. For now, we wanna thank you for reading and your support of what I believe is the BEST super villain comic in world. Some of you just don’t know it yet.
