Motor City Comic Con was a success!

May 17-19 was the 2019 Motor City Comic Con, and Aksanyah Studios was there to sell print comics of Issue #1 of “Milhamah: Fighting Words”!

Issue #1 follows the adventures of Shem ‘Etzem (the noun), Tiqwah Tawit (the article) and Etgar Toar (the adjective) — three linguistic warriors of the Holy Tongue Society. The new print edition contains remastered pages and additional exposition not found in the webcomic.

While at the comic con, I sold 33 copies of the comic, or about one-third of my first print run. Some stickers and prints sold too.

From here, I look forward to making the comic available in metro Detroit comic book shops. The goal is to get back to work on finishing the current story arc and proceeding to the next one while producing enough content for an Issue #2. An Indiegogo or Kickstarter campaign could fund a large-scale print of #1 and #2, plus the UPC codes that will let the comics be sold by national retailers.

I apologize for the lull in new “Milhamah” content, but much more will be on the way in June!

Spring convention season is here!

As I finish the last few panels of my current “Milhamah” story arc, I have a couple of big convention events coming up.

On April 20, Lawrence Technological University will hold its LTU Expo 2019. An Open Crate art gallery will display some of my “Milhamah” artwork, and I’ll be there to discuss my projects and meet new people. So if you’re in the metro Detroit area, check it out!

From May 17 to 19, I’ll be back at the Motor City Comic Con to sell comic panel prints, light merchandise and —if all goes according to plan — full comic issues! I’m in the last stages of formatting it all into book form, so if I hustle, I should have a full book or two ready to sell.

The next couple of months will be pivotal toward the future of this comic series. And when the print issues are ready, I’ll have much more news about how to get them online and in select stores.
