Hey everyone, Ryan here. I've set up a VYOU account, meaning if you've got any TERMINALS related questions - or any question for that matter - hope on over to and submit your question. I will then post a video response, answering that question.

Or you can simply use the interface below:

Before and After: PROJECT: ACQUINAS

TERMINALS is going great, we can't thank all of you enough for checking the series out, commenting, and sharing the word! Don't forget, if you haven't joined the Facebook page yet, head on over and do so here. The more people like it, the more cool behind-the-scenes-stuff we'll post.

The blogs and updates will be coming more frequently from now on and well into the new year, so do keep this page in your radar. For now, here's another before and after pencils to color comparison to feast your eyes on: the epic page 9 from issue #2 in which we get a glimpse of what happened back in WWII when Project: Acquinas unleashed the first superheroes upon the world.

Rove and Ed absolutely nailed the page, one of my favorites in the series so far. The fourth panel is actually what started this whole series in the first place, so this page in particular has a special place in our hearts.

Keep on reading TERMINALS Tuesdays and Thursdays over at

Head on over to Facebook and be a fan of TERMINALS.

Color Commentary...

Late on updates here on the Terminals Blog, but with good reason. Rove, Ed and I have been working super hard putting the finishing touches on the first issue. The pages look amazing, we couldn't be happier with how the book is turning out.

While we can't give you a concrete release/launch date yet, here's what I can tell you about Terminals:

  • Terminals will begin in September.
  • The initial run of the series will be online, readable for free.
  • New pages will be published every week, multiple pages per week.
  • The entire run is six-issues, each issue clocking in at 22-26 standard-size pages.
  • The series does feature some mild mature content (violence and language, no sex).
  • Team Terminals is not responsible for any spontaneous pregnancies, foot injuries or weight-gain incurred from reading the book.
Stay tuned real soon for an official launch date and website announcement. We can't thank you enough for your interest and support. It's been a long time in the making and we're excited as all hell to finally unleash Terminals.

Until then, here's another little sneak peek, this time with color!

Blood Type...

I like the idea of photo-real promotional materials for a comic book. I like Rove's artwork even better though. You'll be seeing it come alive in no time. In the meantime, check out this poster idea I came up with, just fooling around in photoshop.

As always, stay tuned. Terminals is almost here.

I know I keep saying 'soon', but this time I mean it. As a show of good faith, here's a panel I've cropped out of a full page from Issue #1, sans colors or letters.

Clarence Charles (aka Bear) – 34, Brown bear, 300lbs. Clarence Charles was a mild-mannered and meek insurance broker, killed in a car wreck. The "company" capitalized on this man, this invisible blip on society's radar by successfully merging his brain with that of a matured Alaskan brown bear. In his new feral form, Clarence has retained as much function that his new body can allow, his memories and language skills – the lack of opposable thumbs the only real disadvantage. Clarence left behind a wife, Susanne.

"...listening to Tom Petty on the freeway one minute, the next, you’re a 300 pound bear with a blood-lust for salmon."

Man, oh man, things are picking up for Team Terminals. Rove is cranking out pages, I'm cranking out words, and that bum on 4th street was yanking his crank to the picture below (click to fullsizenate that thing).

Readers, meet Swarm. Swarm, meet readers. Swarm is a lovely young girl who enjoys long walks on the beach, curling up next to a warm fire, and secreting bees out of every orifice on her body. Yes, even that orifice. No it won't be in the book. Well, okay, it might be in the book. Sounds hot, huh?

Stay tuned for plenty more updates, though be forewarned, we're going to unleash this beast sooner than you think.

Got any plans for July?

Things are moving along rapidly here in Terminalsville (population: your face).

To celebrate the end of the work week, here's a little concept art for you.

These people are not nice.

A very, very important element in Terminals has gone without attention until now. That element being color, of course.

We're super excited to announce Ed Ryzowski as the colorist for Terminals. Ed is one hell of an artist, also working and living here in Canada. He's currently producing great work on the webcomic series Evil Inc.

You can also check out more of Ed's work and updates over at his personal space, Tragically Geek.

I guess we can also let the cat out of the bag, if you haven't clued in already, that Terminals will be brought to you by the incredible Penny Farthing Press.

We love Penny Farthing. We love Ed. We love Rove. We love Ryan. We love all of you. There's just a heaping, writhing, armpit-farting, sweaty pile of self-love going on right now.

The dawn of Terminals is closer than you think.

Feels like I'm always apologizing for the lack of updates, but hey, these things take time. The road to Terminals is a long one, perhaps, but Rove and I are enjoying the ride. We've got the top down, our shoes off, Ke$ha on the radio and gnats in our teeth. And a corpse in the back. Don't ask.

The point is, we're still very hard at work. One of the most important issues in the series is fully scripted - you won't believe it when you read it - and Rove's pages are absolutely gorgeous.

On that note, we'll have some interesting news for you very soon, I can't spoil it yet. In the meantime, have a peek at some conceptual promo art I've cooked up for the series. You should come down and find Rove and I at this year's Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo... you might be able to see something or take something home with you...

Got my hands on a bunch of gorgeous artwork c/o Rove. Expect plenty of sneak peeks in the forthcoming time before release.

For now, here's some concept art for 'Zombie', the lovable, flesh eating hobo, visually inspired by the great Tom Waits

Just a quick little blog for you... if you haven't checked it out yet, head on over to the newly re-launched website for Penny Farthing Press. Their new site looks fantastic, and they will be making some really cool announcements soon *cough wink nudge*. Very exciting times for PFP indeed, and Rove and I can't wait to be added into the fold.

Stay tuned for some more artwork and sneak peeks pretty soon.

Check out this framed addition to my wall :)


Happy new year, everyone! Pardon the lack of Terminals updates, the holiday season was crazy for Team Terminals.

Rove and I are hard at work on the book and everything is taking its form. It's also an incredibly busy time for Penny Farthing Press, our publisher - stay tuned for some big announcements from them soon.

This year will be defining. More updates on their way; Rove and I thank you so much for your support and excitement.
