This page was so much fun to write. I was dragged to a bunch of churches as a kid and the dialgoue I wrote is what I think I heard while the Pastor was speaking. Who knows.

Christian really surprised me with his art on this one. I could picture it in my mind but he brought it to levels I never thought possible.

Post Comic-con depression sucks. I just had the time of my life and hanging out with all my good friends from all over the world and  I’m back to real life. Don’t get me wrong because I love my job at the paper but it’s hard to tear away from the place where everyone in the circles you run gets you and your unhealthy obsession with comics.

I can’t wait until next year.

Dear Reader,

Christian and I had a blast at Phoenix Comicon, it’s our favorite convention to attend and it’s always a pleasure to be apart of it year after year. We sold out of all our copies of Captain Unikorn, again. It’s unfortunate that we can’t afford to keep it in print, but we are looking to fix that with Kickstarter. The plan is to recolor and letter the first 44 pages and raising money to publish the next three books. Please send me suggestions on what you want to see as Kickstarter pledges.

We were on the LGBT in Main Stream comics panel with some very knowledgeable and talented folks. It was the first LGBT comic themed panel in the history of Phoenix Comicon. The audience had great questions and we made some new friends in the process. The engery in the room recharged our juices and gave us a new perspective on Captain Unikorn. It reminded us how orignal and important this idea is to the future of LGBT characters are in comics.

Thanks for reading. We both sincerely appreciate your support and look forward to see you next week. (I goofed and forgot to publish last week. My bad but we are back on track.)

Dear Readers,

These are some exciting times. Now more then ever people are becoming aware and accepting of equality among gay people. I’ll never forget having debates with my family (to this day) about my views on gay marriage and how everyone should have a the right to be happy. Captain Unikorn is a big extension to my views on the subject.

Christian and I were writing up a story for Unite and Take Over anthology and Captain Unikorn was going to be the main character. We created this openly gay superhero, and Christian drew his influence from Freddie Mercury while Anderson Cooper was mine. As soon as Christian emailed me the final design of the character we knew that he had to give him his own book.

We debut this book at the Phoenix Comicon 2012 at the exact time DC outed Allan Scott and Marvel had the big Astonishing X-Men wedding issue with Northstar. We had created this book months before any of this was in the press. Captain Unikorn isn’t a marketing strategy to capitalize on the craze or to make a gay character for the sake of it. Not to say those characters were, but we haven’t really heard from them since.

He’s a big-hairy-gay-hero that kill bigots, and we wouldn’t have him any other way.

Cheers,

Henry & Christian
