RUNNERS Vol 1 Coloring Done!!

It took a little bit longer than anticipated (ack — the detail was more than I remembered!), but the coloring of Volume 1: Bad Goods is now finished! I’m now in the review phase, like checking the lettering to make sure it fits certain comic rules I was not aware of back then. Thanks to blambot.com for those handy tips! I am also currently doing a review of all the actual art to make sure no coloring errors slipped by me. After that, I will be moving on to the bonus material for the book, which shouldn’t take too long, and then it’s FINALLY off to the printer!

Depending on the print time, I should have the books in very early 2019, at which time I will be fulfilling the Kickstarter and pre-sale orders. If you still want to PRE-ORDER a book, you can do so from my Store.

In the meantime, here is a sampling of the colored pages:

Thanks everyone for your patience during this coloring process. At some point, I’ll also be replacing all the old b&w Vol 1 art here on runnersuniverse with the new colored pages. Hopefully that won’t be too much of a hassle.

And then it’s on to VOLUME 3 in 2019!! I may have mentioned it a while back, but that volume is already fully scripted and will be an extra long story, the equivalent of 8 issues, compared to the 5 issues of volumes 1 and 2. There’s still a bit of concepting to be done for that book for all the new characters and locations, and I’ll also need some time to look into a colorist to help me with the book. So while there’s still a bit of pre-production time needed before pages start posting, the colorist should help me make up for it in terms of speeding up production and getting the actual book out faster!

  1. I had no problem with the black and white (it’s the version I own after all) but it looks great in color. But I’m mostly looking forward to the next story.

    I don’t feel bad now about losing those pics of the lego version of that ship because now I know I want to make it mostly red anyway.

      It still bums me out that I can’t seem to find those photos either. But if you ever get around to making new LEGO versions of the ships, that would be amazing!!
