Benbo update(s)

With Chapter 1 online,
and the second chapter going live next month on 5 May.

i had the idea to pitch a new benbo story to magazines that are 'Benbo minded' (as in Weapon / Gun magazines)

as of yet i contacted 1 magazine, and they where keen on the idea,
telling me they had that same proposition before, but those guys wanted to do a continuous story line not knowing it was a magazine that comes out once every two months.

originally i wanted to do a story that had a beginning and an end for a magazine,specially for a magazine that comes once every blue moon.

now i'm done with 2 of the "Benbo EXTRA's"
and i am going to pitch them this week to that magazine, and see what comes out of it.

one thing i can tell you,
the production of the benbo extra's is more difficult than the on-going series,
why i don't know, probably because i'm restricted in a sertain ammount of space, and i can make the regular series as long and filled with detail as i want in one chapter.

Though i hope the magazine will pick it up.

Almost forgot about this...

Almost forgot to mention this in the Blog,

durring the "Stripdagen" gorinchem 2013,
i got visited by 2 dudes on the last day of the CON,
telling me they were from the J-pop foundation

and wanted to buy my book, to let it run at the 'Dutch Manga Awards'

i was all to glad to sell it to them.

Time go's by, meanwhile i got my book placed on the shelves at my local comicbook store..

two days ago (23april) When a friend Apped my with the question 'what's the word on the award ceremony?' i told her, 'dunno, i'll mail them in to morning'.

after saying that, i directly got a mail.. Telling me, i got through the first round. and was invited to come to the awards on 31 May 2013..

How about them beans

Don't know about you guys.. but i can't wait for it.
