Welp. 2020 came and went, but we’re finally here! VIVA THE HUNTER issues 0-3 are finally available for purchase in digital and PRINT at vivathehunter.com/buy! That’s right – you can finally catch up on the latest issue which is officially available now, Witch Blood, which features incredible new work by Magdalena Zwierzchowska, Marc Tinio, Alyne Leonel and Marc Tinio.
More issues are sure to come in the future, so stay tuned everyone!
Lineart production for issue #3 has officially begun! Artist Magdalena Zwierzchowska has been commissioned to produce twenty-eight awesome pages of art based on the finalized script for issue #3. After Zwierzchowska is finished then colors, lettering and cover art will immediately follow. Expect to hear more about the process later this fall!
The first draft of issue #4 is currently underway! Until then, stay tuned for more news on VIVA THE HUNTER!
VIVA THE HUNTER #2 – No Place Safe is officially available to read online here, alongside Webtoons and Tapas! There were some delays in getting it out, but it is finally here. VIVA THE HUNTER #3 – Witch Blood is next up to see the light of day. The script is already complete, but I am still working on getting the right line artist for the story.
In other news, I am still working diligently on getting the series picked up by a publisher for widespread distribution. I have sent submission packages out to several prospective groups, so right now it is a time of waiting. Absolutely zero money has been made off this project, so I am hoping that a physical print run could really help kick-off the production of issues 4, 5 and 6.
This just in: artist Dirk Van Parys just finished up the final cover art for VIVA THE HUNTER #2 – “No Place Safe”! I would argue that they have made the greatest cover art for this series yet, featuring several key elements that hint of darksome events to come. Issue #2 is scheduled to drop online around early March, so stay tuned for more information!
January has flown by faster than anticipated! As promised, here is more news on current development for the VIVA THE HUNTER comic project.
Issue #2’s line art is sketched and inked, thanks to the insanely skilled work of Genesis Zorrilla! Each page is currently receiving final edits, and will soon be forwarded to the colorist in early February.
With issue #2’s line art being mostly done, I’ve finally commissioned cover artwork for the issue. This artwork is going to be completed by artist Dirk Van Parys. Super excited to see how this turns out in mid-February!
Once the colors are complete, the issue will go to the letterer (likely LetterSquids once more). After letters and the cover are complete, I’m anticipating an online release for this issue sometime around late February/mid-March!
As for the next issue, #3, the script is nearly complete minus a few minor edits. Shout-out to my editor Domenico Montini for all his help on that upcoming issue! Work on issue #4 will begin shortly after that script is finalized.
So yeah, that’s pretty much all I’ve got for right now. More content should be coming right up in the next month. I’m hoping that once this whole series is finished, I can try to pitch it out to a few publishers to recoup the costs and potentially reach a broader audience for new projects! Here’s to to the future.
Starting November 1st, lineart production on issue #2 will officially begin! Genesis Zorilla has been commissioned to produce thirty gorgeous pages of art based on the finalized script for issue #2. After Zorilla is finished, colors, lettering and cover art will immediately follow. Expect issue #2 to drop late January/early February in 2020!
The first draft of issue #3 is currently underway! Until then, stay tuned for more news on VIVA THE HUNTER!
Keep an eye out for this page to update! Both issues #0 and #1 should be ready to read online here, Tapas, and even Webtoons. Stay tuned because I will also be announcing additional news about issue #2!
VIVA THE HUNTER, my dark fantasy webcomic project, finally debuts Halloween 2019 with the release of two issues:
VIVA THE HUNTER #0 – Prologue
In the city of Indianapolis lies a nightclub called the Metro. Atop its roof, two warriors train. These warriors are Yasin and Viva, and this prologue is a short preview of things to come in the new VIVA THE HUNTER webcomic!
One year prior to the events of issue #0, a training swordswoman named Viva flees from her abusive boyfriend Lanis in the dead of night. She seeks refuge with a mysterious woman known as Sven, who holds hidden ties to the dark arts. For Viva, this may be the last night she ever has.
This issue is an expanded retelling of the 2018 short film SOME PLACE SAFE, the proto-project for this entire series!
