If you love, like, or tolerate me even a bit - drop by a comic shop and put in your order for ROBYN HOOD: WANTED #1 today.
From Byron to Buffy
Pretty sure that being reblogged by the awesome From Byron to Buffy has gotten Robyn Hood more press than any of my interviews thus far. Tumblr rocks!
Press Batch #1
Hey! It’s been a crazy week and change. I’ve decided to post, in addition to my weekly Robyn Hood tease, a collection of all the press that’s going on. It’ll be an easy way to follow the art we’re releasing, interviews I’m doing, and all that fun stuff.
This is what it all began with. Includes three covers for #1, info on the series, and a quote from me.
“Robyn Hood is the story I’ve been waiting to tell. We’re taking this girl, who pretty much has everything good in her life taken from her, and we watch as she evolves into a hero.” states series writer Pat Shand. “Like Katniss Everdeen, Robyn is a strong female character that realizes what her destiny is but approaches it on her own terms.”
This interview covers not only Robyn Hood, but my prior work on Grimm Fairy Tales, 1000 Ways to Die, and Joss Whedon’s Angel. Also, I talk a lot about writing in general. I may also geek out about R. L. Stine.
This interview, just posted today, gets down to the nitty gritty. What am I changing about Robyn Hood? What is staying the same? What about Maid Marian? Are the Merry Men all chicks?
(SPOILER: They’re not.)
Until next time!
Robyn Hood #1 pre-orders
Big time offer!
If you pre-order all three covers of Robyn Hood #1 through Diamond Previews at your local comic shop, I will e-mail you a free PDF collection of ten of my short stories. None of the stories are Zenescope-related, but I thought it would be a cool bonus to those who are supporting the series.
Send me pictures of either your receipt or your Previews order form here: https://www.facebook.com/patshand
