FREELANCERS‘ final chapter hits shelves this Wednesday. I’m sad to say goodbye to the girls (for a while…), proud of Team Freelancers for the work we did (shout outs to Chris Rosa, Bryce Carlson, Matt Gagnon, Felipe Smith, Joshua Covey, Popov Vladimir, Patrick Brosseau, Ian Brill), and still floored that I landed the gig in the first place.
This book literally changed my life. I’d never worked on a multi-issue arc before FREELANCERS, never worked a convention outside of Arizona, never flown on an airplane, never left the country, never had the support of a dedicated marketing team. Hell, I still had a day job.
Five issues later I’m a better writer, in a better place emotionally, and about three weeks away from achieving my over-a-decade-long goal of getting the Hell out of Tucson and starting my life as a multi-platform pencil-for-hire.
Cass has a line in this week’s FREELANCERS #6, “Get outta here and go surprise yourselves with what you’re capable of. Go become who you were always meant to become”.
It’s not a bad idea.
