Interviews. Lots of interviews.

So,

The last few weeks a large amount of interviews (for me) came out and went up.

Here they are:

http://www.oldmanandbittergirl.com/news/comic-review-nova-phase/ A very nice review, and a very nice interview. Both done expertly. Also, it's a cool site for reasons other than this.

http://www.fanboyplanet.com/interviews/mc-matthew-ritter.php Fanboy planet interviewed me. A whole planet of fanboys sound terrifying. I was thanked for my time, and it's a pretty good interview.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/02/17/matthew-ritter-on-writing-8-bit-comics/ Of the random interviews, i think i liked this one the best, but mostly because it went off on tangents not related to the comic at all.

http://reglarwiglar.blogspot.com/2014/02/comics-review-nova-phase.html This was just a little review kind of thing. NOT an interview.

http://evilgeeks.com/2014/03/03/ep-066-nova-phase-with-matthew-ritter/ I was also on the Brotherhood of Evil Geeks podcast. I still don't know what a pod is, or how it can cast spells, but regardless, if you wonder what I sound like with my voice, this is the place for you.

I can make no guarantees that each and everyone of them doesn't have basically the same info. Also, I've never read them back to back, that could prove... repetitive. 

Oh, and I guess, if you want to buy the comic or something and haven't already, go here:  http://www.comixology.com/Nova-Phase/comics-series/14632

It's been a few days since the release.

Greetings cowboys of the space variety.

It has been a few days sense release of Nova Phase, and amazingly people are still writing reviews and talking about it. So, I'm here to give one of those blanket thanks to all the places that I heard of that were doing so.

Comic bastards wrote an amazing review. It's so nice it made me go 'did i create this review from the depths of my own imagination'.

Goodreads did a nice little spotlight on it. Which is awesome of them.

Fanboy Planet did a very nice review. Their only real negative comment was that the comic might work better in digital form thanks to the digital graphics. Quite possibly! I still like holding things in my grubby mits, and await the print copy next month.

Comic Book and Movie Reviews did an interview with me. I think one of the questions got gibberished up in the edit, but still, if you want to know more about Nova Phase, read it there.


ZAP! POWIE!

More coverage.

Greetings!

So the release was yesterday. I have no idea how it went. At all. Comixology doesn't give sales data until the end of the quarter.

But! A few other places put up coverage of the book, and it was all really nice. Like, makes me worried it looks like I was paying them, nice.

Comics Alliance said these things. Also, they spent way to much time on Twitter trying to get people to look at my book. For which I will name my first born son after them. His name shall be Comics Alliance Weebalo. (weebalo sounds way cooler than Ritter)

Comics Spectrum used the term 'astounding' to refer to my writing. I don't think I've ever astounded anyone before with the written word, and I hope the reviewer was okay afterwords. They also said a bunch of nice things about the art which I won't be sarcastic and weird about, because I think the art in this book is fantastic.

Mars Will Send No More did a nice spotlight of it. Also they have a badass name for a website. If you don't get it, which I didn't either, click their secret origin button and have your mind blown.

Comics Astonish did a write up. They told people to go buy my comic in all caps. I thank them. Anyone else who wants to follow in their footsteps? You have my blessing. It's also a good review.

Graphic Policy also did a nice spotlight preview thingy. Showing off art. Telling people of my book. Making me feel more important than I am. Yaknow the deal. That's what they did and I love them for it.

The comic is still up for sale, and will forever be up for sale as far as I know over here

Go buy it. It's good. Great even!

The comic is for sale on Comixology

The comic has dropped. It is for sale over on Comixology.

Go, buy it. Purchase it now. The first issue is for free, the second issue costs human money. So you can even read some of it and never ever give any money to me or anyone else. It is within your power.

It's a glorious day that terrifies me. Go, tell all other mortals of it. Prove to the universe that people kind of tolerate pixel art!
