Back in the Fray at Last…

Or looking forwards again...

Hi Guys,

Well it took a long time to get here, but the guys at BT finally sorted out the speed and access issues for us here at the Keep, so look for some more new Blogs again at long last.

I would just like to say a heartfelt thanks to two guys in particular, Richard H. the guy in tech support that initiated the recovery of our BT Business Broadband Internet connection after everyone else failed to do so and also to Saj the engineer that came on-site twice to check out our systems and line and sorted the problem by sourcing it to faulty equipment at the BT exchange. I can’t praise these two guys enough. It took these two guys a week to sort out what has, in total, been an otherwise, unacceptable 35 days of little or no access to the Internet.

Anyone that has kept in touch via telephone knows that the saga has put us miles behind here, but rest assured the work schedule has been stepped up to try to continue to meet the deadline for everything including the launch of the “Worlds End” Figurines at Bristol International Comics Expo, although the “Worlds End” graphic novel will probably be launching later. We will, however have a sneak preview for folks to check out there at the show in the form of a full colour Ashcan, so you can check out how things are going to look inside the finished graphic novel.

There are also some more surprises before then, which we aren’t quite ready to disclose yet.

The hassle with the Internet has affected our plans for the launch of the Hall of Fame, as we were unable to continue to build the section throughout this last month, or communicate with the artists who we are waiting for with approval on their respective biographies. We will let you guys know ASAP when the completed biographies are loaded and ready for launch.

In the meantime it’s all guns to the fore, all hands to the deck here as I try to play catch-up with the schedule and try to maintain the momentum for the ongoing projects already in the works.

I must admit with all that has happened in the studio since New Year it seems like we are just beginning the year, whereas in real terms we are over one twelfth way through it.

Sorry I can’t stop to chat, but I’ll be back soon.

Until next time have fun!
