Happy day-before-the-Kalends-of December! The big holiday is just a few weeks away! Is all your Saturnalia shopping done? Looking forward to switching places with your favorite subordinate so he/she can teach you who is really the boss? Make sure to wear your most-tricked out synthesis and pointiest cone cap, and pick the freshest gladiator corpse you can find to offer up to Saturn for this most wonderful week of drunkenness, dice and debauchery! Io Saturnalia!
(Although, I suppose if you're one of those people, you can just offer up a prayer to Sol Invictus (the Unconquerable Sun) aka Mithras, on his birthday, December 25, and enjoy your Chinese takeout at home. We'll be sure to wish you a bland and boring "Happy Holidays" if we deign to speak to you. Enjoy your war on Saturnalia, weirdo.)
So, now that I've gotten that out of the way (God, I do so hate those people), it's time for some updates:
Production on Amiculus: Volume II has hit the 50% mark! We're well on the way to hitting the launch-point of mid-to-late March, 2016. At left, You can see some samples, including covers for all four books in the series (including the preview) and an inked page that seriously make me wonder what this series might have been like in black-and-white.
So keep an eye out soon for a new teaser video, and a new Roman Debauchery Fun Fact Extra, exploring the purported demonic origins of Justinian the Great and whether or not his wife Theodora was, in fact, a succubus in human form.
And if you see a Mithraist or a Sun worshiper, can you please let them know, in no uncertain terms, that they are quite simply ruining it for the rest of us.
More to come!
