We are a little over due for an update, so I just wanted to pop in and say a few things. For the record, the script for The Black Cloak #1 has been written, edited, and approved. Now we are in the stages of bringing this puppy to life in panel form. I have got to say that out of all the things I have ever written, there’s nothing like this. But I’m not really feeling in the mood to type a soliloquy about the euphoric enticing escapades of working in the comic book medium.
God forbid I should succumb to my inner Alan Moore.
Needless to say, the team and I are hard at work. And despite the challenges of juggling hectic school schedules and demanding day jobs, we plan on keeping you all in the loop. Unfortunately, we won’t have anything major (or minor for that matter) to show until the merry month of May. So bear with us ladies and gents! I assure you, this is going to be well worth the wait.
I would also like to encourage you to make use of the ask feature on out tumblr. Our creative team is dedicated to making the development process an interactive one. So if you have any questions or comments, you know where to leave them.
And if not, God help you.

Here’s to New Beginnings!
So I may or may not catch some heat for this from Zach (my editor and the guy posting mostly from this blog as this is technically his account) but the tough roads are for those who want to move forward. And with that being said, I’ll get right to my point.
About a month ago, I sat down to ask myself a very simple yet frustratingly difficult question to answer. It’s the kind of question that undoubtedly all dedicated writers come across at some point during conception, and that question is: “What is this about?”
What is the The Black Cloak about?
By God I was determined to find the answer. So I closed my laptop, shelved all my comics, and locked myself in a bubble of introspection (accompanied only by the comedic stylings of “Rules of Engagement”, and Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”) and after weeks of deep thought, I came upon this answer…an answer that would have my entire creative team up in arms.
On the sixth day of the final week, I descended from my bubble to bring news to my people, and thus I spoke: “Hear Ye, Zacharias, O gallant editorial one that ye are. Take note of my knowing, that we must simply start over.”
Now for those of you who don’t know Zach, if you’ve ever watched an episode of Family Guy, that thing that Peter does where he rubs the corners of his eyes beneath his glasses and sighs? That was his response. But Zach trusted my judgement, told me he would make some calls, and we would do what he to do.
Devan let me have it. And with good reason too. Never ever ever ever ever say “We’re starting over, to an artist who is halfway through inking the panels you’ve been riding him to do. I learned that lesson, sorry Devan! And after reading the revised treatment (which incidentally isn’t a complete revamp of the original just a lot of modifications) he too was excited to get on board.
So there you have it, folks. After eight months of grueling hard work, the team is jumping back to square one with a far more polished idea and both feet planted firmly on the ground. What is The Black Cloak about? Follow us on tumblr and find out. We’ll keep you posted.
