What I did on my summer vacation.

We* sold the Lost Squad to Hollywood.

No biggie.

If you're new to the site (and so far today a TON of you are) and you're not familiar with LOST SQUAD, scroll down two posts to check out the overview I posted to bring you up to speed, then stroll down to your local comic shop or make with the clicky and check out the DDP webstore to pick up the back issues.

For those of you I owe emails to for the last week and have wondered what's been going on, well... now you know.

More later as things settle down.

UPDATE: Here's a few handy links from the post below I thought I'd include for the people who are too lazy to scroll down two posts (and you know who you are). Here's the CBR interview I did back in Sept '05 that includes the first 9 pages of issue #1 and sample pages from issue #2.

Devi's Due has 5 page previews still online for issue#3, issue #4, and issue #5.

2ND UPDATE: * The "WE" in the above statement doesn't actually include me to be honest. The men behind the deal are actually the attached producers, Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter, who deserve MAJOR props for getting this deal done. Thanks for the support and encouragement, guys. I will name my next born either Daniel Adrian Kirby if it's a boy or Adriana Daniela Kirby if it's a girl.

Thanks to Josh Blaylock and the Devil's Due crew -- Sam Wells, Susan Bishop, Tim Seeley, Brian Torney, Caitlin McKay for their hard work. Thanks to Marshall Dillon who brought the project to DDP in the first place. Thanks to Ed Dukeshire E-I-C of Digital Webbing Presents (still going strong!). Also, thanks to Scott Agostino at William Morris and the fine folks at Rogue Pictures.

More updates as I get the chance.

Congrats on the sale. It made Daily Variety this morning.

Also check out my already made feature film and see what we came up with. We started shooting in 2004.

Congratulations. Still doesn't take away from the fact that I'm going to kick your ass in Fantasy Football this season.

I just saw the notice, and submitted this blog and new title to IMDB. I've had many submissions over the years, so should be up in about a week.
