I’ve very excited to announce that RUNNERS Volume 1: Bad Goods will be re-issued very shortly IN COLOR!

While I still think the b&w version of Vol 1 works well, I know that b&w art can be a deterrent for some readers, which I’d hate to be the case with my series. Also, after having done Vol 2 in color, I really do think color helps sell the sci-fi world of the series quite a bit. As I started working on Vol 3, I decided that Vol 1 really should be in color sooner rather than later to (a) open up the series to as many readers as possible, and (b) visually match Vol 2 and all future RUNNERS books, which will also be in color.

I am currently putting together a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the new color Vol 1, and I hope to launch the campaign on May 21. Please help me spread the word about the Kickstarter and the new color version of Bad Goods! The Kickstarter would be a great time for new readers to jump onto the series and current readers to experience the first book in a whole new way. In the meantime, keep checking here for more page samples and additional info on the upcoming campaign!

    Ooooooo! Canon Grissom colors incoming?

    Can’t wait to see just how on/off the mark I was with my guesses haha 8’D

    • Sean Wang says:

      Yes!! Grissom colors are done! I was very tempted to go with whitish skin, but with the fur and horns, I thought she’d be too similar to the Ulon Dosi goat aliens from Vol 2. So I went another way. I actually ended up reversing things a bit, so her skin is darker than the head tattoo. I’ll probably be posting one of those pages soon as another sneak preview page.

  2. I already have the b & w version and no money so I’ll stick with that. But the colors in the samples are really good.

    • Sean Wang says:

      No problem! I think if people are happy with the b&w version, they can stick with that. I’m just hoping enough people are interested in a color version that the Kickstarter can be successfully funded!

    Just what I was hoping for! I loved the black and white version, but the colors were so amazing in book 2, that I immediately wanted colors for book 1!!

    ((Sudden random observation: The second example page, last panel, the little green guy on the far right with a familiar looking nose… a random member of Suul’s race walking around, perchance? Or just a coincidence? 030 ))

    • Sean Wang says:

      Ha ha! That would be very interesting. But alas it is just another random alien with somewhat similar features. But maybe a divergent species with ancient common ancestry with Suul’s race??
