So this is it! For now, anyhow. Jonathan and I produced the initial 8 pages of R&A as a potential pitch and primer, so we hope you’ve enjoyed the misery thus far. There’s a great (if I do say so myself) story to be told here, full of staged PETA protests, washed up conformist hippies, and embezzlement — hopefully someday you’ll get to see it in its completion!
Without further ado, Page 8 (click to enlarge):
I’ll be off to the illustrious New York Comic-Con tomorrow morning, so I thought I’d leave the weekend open with the next page of R&A, which is somewhat of a cliffhanger. I hope you can all manage to wait for page 7…

We’re back in action with the next page of R&A, after taking a brief time out for me to deliver my ramblings on Joaquin Phoenix’s hoax. In other news, Lohan is back in rehab, Snooki has a “book” coming out (ghost writer, anyone?) and more importantly, Tony Curtis passed away (RIP).
Spread the word of Roscoe and Alice, and send these pages to your mother, grandmother, aunt, and all of their bridge partners. Click to enlarge!

At last, we’re ready to start debuting pages from R&A! Proudly presenting Page 1 (click to enlarge):
Stay tuned in the coming days for more!
I just want to give a quick shout out to Jonathan’s work in the epic WWII zombie anthology that just debuted at Baltimore Comic-Con last weekend, FUBAR. He illustrates a story called DE GUERS, written by Stephen Lindsay that is truly awesome.
I know some folks are “over” the zombie thing, but I urge you to check it out (Diamond Order Code SEP100743). There’s 13 stories for a mere $12. Nothing says value like less than $1 per story and 168 pages.
It’s been a long and tedious month, due mostly to excessive amounts of stress and bullshit. All of that aside, R&A progress is down to the wire and the completed 8-page preview will be available soon! As I mentioned in an earlier post, we won’t be posting any preview art beyond Page 4, to be pretentious and reserve the integrity of the story. That said, for your viewing pleasure, is the colored Page 3:
Leave it to a bit of color to spice things up. For most, this is your first look at the meat and potatoes of what will be the Roscoe and Alice story; though a detective/mystery tale is sort of what comes across from the first page, you’ll see it diverts greatly.
