LOTS MORE FOR CHARITY
Well, it’s been a day. My wife broke her finger in a dog-walking mishap and much of the day has been spent being an Uber driver for my oldest and an ambulance driver for my wife. (Not to mention going to two different pharmacies to find a sling. Seriously, what’s wrong with the world?)
Which is my way of saying that this one will be short.
But for the aforementioned broken finger, I would have finished the script for the sixth and final issue of PROJECT HIGHLAND (a/k/a Last Flight Out) today. As it is, I’m 99.999% finished with it and quite happy with how it turned out. Last issues are tricky beasts by nature, but I’m reasonably pleased with how this one turned out.
I also gave extensive notes on the first set of letters for the first issue of PROJECT CRACKERJACK. That sucker is shaping up rather nicely. [REDACTED] is already half-way through the art on the third issue.
The rest of the week was taken up with Zoom calls, including pitching PROJECT GRANITE to my producing partner on that project and a Zoom with [REDACTED] regarding PROJECT MARBLE.
Anyone reading this newsletter carefully might be surprised that I spent this week working on the final script for PROJECT HIGHLAND rather than a script for PROJECT ENCORE as I indicated I would in last week’s newsletter. Yeah, I called an audible and shifted things somewhat. So next week is now dedicated to PROJECT ENCORE and I’ll also be working on PROJECT MARBLE, PROJECT SUBWAY, and meeting with [REDACTED] on that super-secret project I haven’t codenamed yet.
So… the items that we put up for auction for charity didn’t sell, which is… interesting? The issue may be that eBay is generally moving away from auctions to outright purchases. I have to say from personal experience that I myself have stopped bidding on auctions in favor of lots that offer a “Buy It Now” option. The reason is the people who have figured out how to game the system by simply swooping in at the last possible second with a winning bid. Kinda eliminates the point of an auction (and takes the fun out of it).
All of which means that we’ve placed the items from my Arrow office (I don’t know why I call it that considering the fact I also worked on Legends of Tomorrow from there as well) on eBay has pure sales (as opposed to auctions). As before, all proceeds go to benefit the American Cancer Society. Those items are:
All for charity! C’mon, folks, show me a little love (and fight cancer in the process)!
No, I didn’t screw up the headings. I’m combining them. (I told you, I’m short on time and I’m being efficient.)
I absolutely LOVE what Ashley Bradley and Matt Chauncey are doing on What If…? (Full disclosure: I worked with them both on 3Below: Tales of Arcadia.) It’s like the comic books I loved as a kid come to (animated) life and combined with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the greatest ongoing story being told today.
In the spirit of that show… What If Steve Aoki Appeared on Arrow and No One Ever Talked About It?
(Come to think of it, that’s a long, unwieldy title.)
Well, it actually happened. In Arrow’s very first season. (Episode 17 to be exact.) And here’s the ad that our amazing Art Department drew up for it:
That’s it for this week!
Be good to each other.
