2021: LET’S TRY THIS AGAIN! Launching comics doesn’t have to be about conventions, it can be about LAUNCHING COMICS! Coming this year (COVID or no COVID) from @twogargs! #indie #comics #publishing #amwriting #canadian #arts
FULLY FUNDED!!! The SPECTRUM 2 Kickstarter is now full funded with 5 days left to go! $300 until our first stretch goal! LGBT inclusivity and diversity with superheroes– what’s not to love? Back the campaign at bit.ly/SPECTRUM2
SPECTRUM #2 NOW AT 51% FUNDED!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to type the above sentence. We are over the hump, over the 50-yard line, halfway there, WHOOOOOOOA-OH, livin’ on a prayer! However you’d like to phrase it, we are well on our way to total, 100% funding!
To commemorate this fantastic day, I’d like to share a fun one-page comic Jeremy Thew drew starring Spectrum. Remember those old Hostess Fruit Pie ads from the 70’s and 80’s? Well, we decided to have SPECTRUM star in Two Gargoyles Comics’ very own “MOSTEST Fruit Pie” ads!
And remember– now that we’re over 50% funded, now is not the time to slow down! Reach out to your friends and family, get the URL bit.ly/SPECTRUM2 trending on social media, invite every one you can think of to back this project! We want this train to ZOOM downhill into the station, not crawl its way there.
Thank you all for your support, backing, and efforts in this campaign!
Can I get a WOO HOO?
Hi folks! In anticipation of my Kickstarter launching in two days,( http://bit.ly/KS_PREV ) I thought I’d share the first few pages of SPECTRUM #2 for your perusal and hopefully, enjoyment! Art is by Jeremy Thew, colours by Marvin Marvida, story and lettering by Michael McAdam.
As a fan of DC Comics’ Green Lantern, I’ve always been fascinated by their interpretation of the colour spectrum and the emotional resonance that each colour has.
But I started to think: Since there are more than seven human emotions, surely there’s room for other interpretations of the colours? After all, the very nature of a spectrum is that there are levels– gradients of colour.
To me, Yellow is JOY. It’s a colour that sparks joy in me, and I wanted very much to make a character with a yellow power ring for whom joy was the focus.
I made the character of Yellow Lantern, a fan fiction version of DC’s Lantern mythology, to explore that. Please enjoy the second instalment of Yellow Lantern: “What is Joy?”
