Free Comic Book Day 2014!!!

Just a quick note, from us here at Moonlight Art Magazine. We've been off the grid a little, preparing for the next issue and some new adventures for our line of videos, but we hope that you were able to make it out to your local comic book store yesterday (Saturday May 3rd 2014) for Free Comic Book Day. I myself, spent a lovely time at Dragon's Lair Comics, here in Austin, TX. They made a great event out of it for the day, and everyone had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures!

Don't forget, Moonlight Art Magazine is also FREE! Just CLICK HERE to download all the issues.

Oh! and we also enjoyed Comic Book Girl 19's PSA for Free Comic Book Day!

Interview: Batton Lash of Exhibit A Press!

This video is a little warm up, while I put together the mini documentary When Hollywood Green-Lit Comic Con which I'll be putting on You Tube for free, in the next few weeks.

Batton Lash is the artist, writer, and publisher of his comic book Supernatural Law, which he publishes through his own imprint www.exhibitapress.com, and a artist in residence at Art Lab in San Diego. He can be found every year at the San Diego Comic Con, as shown in this video I shot in 2012.

He also has written and done art for such comics as Archie, The Simpsons Comics, First Gentleman of the Apocalypse, and Gory Lori.

After my Comic Con/Hollywood documentary is out, I plan to finish my short film Girl In The Window, while simultaneously pursuing funding for my feature length documentary The Practical People. Then, come summer time, Moonlight Art Magazine #3 will arrive with the conclusion of my Lovecraftian comic book story, Negative.

...and if you've always wanted to see how someone might work to push the boundaries of their comic book art, then you need to watch this video:

We also have the now legendary artist J.H. Williams III who has worked with the likes of Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman, pushed the boundaries of design in comics, and opened the door for lesbian relationships in comic book storytelling.

Yes, it's a very typical Cthulhu design, but Cthulhu is just  so Cthool! What? It's my magazine and it's gonna be free to download, so don't complain.
