eBook Cover Art & Release Date

Happy fantastic friday.  The underwater cave-dwelling sea-monkeys in the 'ol Mythik Art Department have been hard at work.  They've put together a rough composition of the Mythik Imagination #2 cover.  It is a work-in-progress, but here it is so far:

What do you think?

All three stories will follow a Weird West theme.  Everybody may be gaga over Cowboys & Aliens and Cowboys & Zombies and Zombies and anything, etcetera, but "The Silver Skull" will tell the tale of a Bounty Hunter who doesn't hunt zombies, but IS a zombie.  'Tis sort of a Zombies Are People Too kind of perspective.  "The Schofield Crew" is about a scientist in the 1930's who sends a detective back in time to the wild west to investigate one of the world's greatest mysteries.  "Requiem For The Wild West" shows us what happens when an elderly gunfighter has a showdown with a Nazi officer in WW2 era France.

I know what you're thinking.  That's great, but what about Mythik #1, right?  Well that's the second part of today's post.  The official release date for Mythik Imagination #1 is June 1st.  Kind of like a space shuttle launch, I've been setting dates in my head and then postponing them for various reasons.  But now it's official and no more postponing!  Wahoo, June 1st.

And finally, I've decided that Mythik #3 will also follow a theme:  Savage Sea Stories!  Yep, pirate ships and UFO's and a lot more ;)

Thanks, be Mythik and stay tuned!
