Midnight Kiss issue 2 cover by RyanStegman Midnight Kiss issue 2 cover by RyanStegman
This is the cover to issue two of Midnight Kiss, which is being published by AP Comics (www.apcomics.com). It is a Wizard of Oz thing, but I redesigned the characters to look like scary badasses. The colors, as always, are by Kieran Oats. He's good. So let me know what you guys think!

Love this... I'm playing the Scarecrow in a production, tried to do some darker versions of the Oz characters myself... not anywhere near as good as this though...

The angles used here and the figures are extremely well done. I love the overall compostition and I love the twist on the Wizard of Oz theme. :+fav:

The best Oz based characters I ever seen, but this blood on the cards don't look very good. Rest of work is great , I'm speechless

oh, just noticed this. Whose the sillhouted figure, the shadow we can see on the mirror frame? or is that some big suprise.. which you could tell me about.

All I will say is this: The shadow is from someone who is in the photo within the frame, only this person is now demented and possibly merged with the Wicked Witch of the West. What the hell? Yeah, it's true though!!!!!!

I can't freaking figure out who you are, but I know I've gotta know you! Are you a Golden Goat? Aaron Weisbrod has asked me for quite some time to do some stuff on NightmareWorld, and I still plan on doing it in the future, so I'm interested in how you'r affiliated with that. Let me know!

Yes I'm an Aaron Weisbrod bitch. :)

I finally got published because of him! I went to the SD Con 2004 and got advice from Phil Smith Assist.Editor for Topcow to concentrate on getting published through a company like Digitalwebbing. He invited me to a get together with them after the show but I didn't have a ride.

Through Digital webbing I found Ray Dillon and followed him to Nightmare world. I emailed Aaron to see if I could do an episode and he sent me the "Good Riddance Script."

Now I'm working on my 3rd episode for him.
So I'm An avid member of Golden Goat by Association.

Hey, I know Phil Smith, too! You pretty much know everyone that I know. :evileye:

But that's very, very cool that you've done so much NMW stuff. I really hope to find time to get a story in sometime soon!

And it's good to know all avid members of Golden Goat by Association!!!!

Phil gets around - he was genuinly interested in helping me out. I was at the top cow site and met some others who got to meet phil. Last I heard he was trying to get a writers slot via editor.

Nightmare world has been great and it's gotten a strong following. Origionally it was a site meant for 6 shorts as portfio fodder but now we're looking at 36 stories and a Trade paperback Trilogy to print evrything through publisher FC9!!!

Nightmareworld is such a cool name too!

I agree man. Nightmare World is something that I DEFINITELY want to do eventually. Weisbrod's really making tracks with it!
