Dear Friends,

I am here at Denver Comic-Con this weekend (show ends Monday), so please come see me if you’re in the ‘hood. I’m at the very end of “Aisle I” in Artists Alley. If I’m not there, I’m in the BattleKasters Booth, which is in the “game room.” I did the art for their mobile app game, which is being released this weekend, but I can share it here.

Dear Friends,
For those who missed it, or were disappointed that the issue was sold out…GOOD NEWS!! I have received another shipment of the Marvel Variant STAR WARS books and have a few more to sell. 
Here’s the spiel again!
This is the variant produced by M&M Comics and limited to 3000This number makes it one of the scarcest variants on the market.(And a personal thanks goes out to Mike at M&M for having me paint this cover!)
I am now selling my variant cover issue for $25 including postage and insurance. 
Order my Star Wars Variant #1 from this page: http://bitly.com/DDSWVariant1
BUT WAIT!!!…There’s more! You not only get a mint copy of this book signed by me, (bagged and boarded), but I will also include in your package one additional item from my personal vault of collectibles.These will be all Star Wars items (signed of course) that may include convention programs, signature cards, trading cards, bookmarks, or other collectibles from my files, dating back almost 30 years. Most of these extras are hard to find and will make a fun addition to your Dorman Star Wars collection (like a mini-Dorman LootCrate!)
I have a very limited number of these so please do not hesitate in ordering. I must limit the purchase to one copy per person.  I will remove the page when I have sold out. (It is possible I may get more in the future, but that is not guaranteed).
SHOW APPEARANCE NEWS:
Thanks to all of you who saw me at Pensacon – a wonderful show! Coming up, I’ll be in South Carolina for SC Con in Greenville, SC  March 20th weekend,  Big Wow Con in San Jose in April 18 and 19 (and happy to see Jim Steranko there again).C2E2 in Chicago April 24 – 26, joined by the team from Artifact, creators of a fun new game for which I’m doing the art that launches at C2E2. Watch for more info on that!
Dave.

Dear Friends,
I have a number of pencil pieces of art I am selling this time around. I did these pieces for myself to do more pencil work and practice texture and  detailing. These are all listed on this webpage with the sizes and prices. There is a Paypal button for each as well. These are one-of-a-kind pieces of art, so if you see something you like, don’t hesitate too long– it may be gone when you return. Thanks so much for looking and for your continued support of my work. Thank you also, to those of you who have sent your condolences on the passing of my wife Denise’s dad.

Dear Friends,

 

Me at Discovery Museum Last Year Lecturing On How I Create STAR WARS Art

Me at Discovery Museum Last Year Lecturing On How I Create STAR WARS Art

This next weekend on Saturday October 4th from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., I will be appearing at the Discovery World Museum in Milwaukee for STAR WARS DAY. Last year it was an amazing event supported by the 501st Legion of Star Wars Cosplayers (of which Denise and I are honorary members) and I know it will be again this year. I will be doing two presentations, explaining my approach to creating my STAR WARS art in the theater there, and I hope you can attend one if you’re there. (No, Denise will not be with me this year – she has client obligations in Northwest Florida).
I want to thank all of you out there who stepped up and supported Denise and me this past week during the whole crazy online controversy. You who respectfully spoke up mean a lot to us both. A lot of good came out of this controversy. It ignited back channel conversations between me and my colleagues, me and Con organizers, and of course, the meaningful viewpoints from you, the fans. If you’re scratching your heads with no idea what I’m referencing, here’s a link to Denise’s interview with Comic Vine journalist Mat Elfring, which ended up on Yahoo! News:

Only a few writers showed true journalistic integrity and research this past week, and I applaud those who did. Rob Salkowitz of iCv2Mat Elfring of Comic Vine and Heidi McDonald of The Beat are three that come to mind. I also appreciated the talented Gail Simone’s professionalism in her mea culpa, and her willingness to revisit the real story. In the end, I worry for the future of social media, the future of  journalism, and I worry for the future of many readers out there who seem blinded to critical thinking. As our close friend, sometimes business partner and fellow artist Charlie Athanas said, “Oh, hive mind. We should all watch Forbidden Planet and learn that this collective id thing can be really dangerous. Then shut down our computers and go have a drink with some friends.” Well said, Charlie. Denise plans to share the best ideas and suggestions she’s received about how we as creatives and exhibitors can improve sales and our Con experiences from the many who commented on her blog, ComicBookWife.com, so watch for that.
On Wednesday Denise and I will be guests of Chicago comics advocate and podcaster Wendi Freeman and her podcast Double Page Spread. I will post a link here when it’s up, but here’s a link to Wendi’s past podcasts – check them out: 
http://bitly.com/DoublePageSpreadPodcast
Many of you know I’m a big #MMO #SWTOR gamer. I did a really fun Ootinicast Twitch TV interview this week about my Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming and my STAR WARS art with co-host Ander (aka Redna), so here is a link to that interview for you:

I hope to see everyone soon. As always, thanks for reading,
Dave.

Well, it’s finally here!! I have received my shipment of Dave Dorman’s WASTED LANDS OMNIBUS! The book will be in stores either this week or next week (Sept. 10th or 17th). But because I am friends with the publisher (LOL) I have gotten some books pre-release. I know a lot of you have been asking where to get the books. I would say support your local comics shop or brick-and-mortar book store. However, if you would like a special deal direct from the creator, Dave Dorman (that would be me!) then hold onto your hat!

But WAIT!!! There’s more!!…
#4. Signed & remarqued! When you order directly thru me I will SIGN your books personally (and add a personalization in the book if you like). AND… I will add a DRAWING of one of my WASTED LANDS characters in the book as well!
You will never get a better deal than this one today. The hardback OMNIBUS, the Limited Edition comic, the print, AND a one-of-a-kind, personalized drawing!
