The Adventures of Bunny Bravo

Bunny Bravo

Hi friends & family!

It has been too long, but I want to share an exiting new project that I am involved with. I am working with producer Mychal Simka to help bring and animated children’s film to screens large and small.

With an all-star cast and over a dozen pop songs, Adventures of Bunny Bravo is Simka Entertainment’s 14th animated film. The movie will be produced in both English and Spanish following the success of Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos – Producer Mychal Simka’s first and only other film released in English and Spanish – which made over $9 million at the box office.

We are currently raising money through Microventures and IndieGoGo’s equity crowdfunding portal. Proceeds from the raise will go towards the creation of deliverables required for distribution in the U.S., UK, Canada, Mexico, and South America and marketing the project to cable, pay-per-view, premium video-on-demand, and DVD buyers in those markets.

There are some pretty great perks available for investors, including a Bunny Bravo comic book that we will be spearheading.

Check out the campaign, and share with your friends and family!

Thank you for your continued support!

Henchmen Graphic Novel on Kickstarter – Ending This Week!

Hello internet friends! I know I don’t update much these days, and when I do it seems to be because of a Kickstarter project. This post is different…actually no it’s not. Jamison and I kickstarting Henchmen again! We’ve actually been live for the month and we are wrapping up this week, so please help us smash through a stretch goal or two before the week is up. We have some great tiers including a custom copy of the book with custom cover art by artist Ryan Howe!

There is more! Mark Waid wrote the foreword. Talk about cool – Jamison and I have both been fans since we were young pups first reading comics! Making this book has been a lot of fun and we’ve been fortunate to meet some great folks over the past year – some of those folks are also signed up to provide some cool print artwork if we unlock some additional stretch goals, including Transmetropolitan (one of my all time favorite comic books) artist Darick Robertson!

Scoundrel Society – A New Game from Action Phase Games

Hi friends – a quick note/post to let you know & remind you that Action Phase Games has a new game in the works called Scoundrel Society. If you remember, last year I helped found APG and we had a great launch with our inaugural project, Heroes Wanted.

At the time of this post, the project is just $300 shy of funding, so if you like board games and you want to help me and the team out, be sure to back today!

Thanks again!

Comic Book Conventions – Photos From The Year So Far & A Write Up On The Indypendent Show!

I’ve been to a couple of comic book conventions, and plan to be at a couple more. I especially want to share a quick review of the show I was at this past weekend:

The Indypendent Show

The Indypendent show was honestly a bit of a surprise for me. Due to crazy schedules and having a spread out creative team on Henchmen, I quite frankly wasn’t sure if going to a show focussed on local talent and independent publishers would be very fruitful or honestly very fun.

I was very happy that I was completely wrong. I met some flat-out amazingly talented people at the show, both attending and exhibiting, and got to share the comic creative and business process with my son, who was able to sell some of his original artwork and in turn buy artwork from some of the most patient, passionate, and caring folks I’d met in a long time. He learned a lot, and I learned a lot.

The format and size of the show was perfect for a one day event  – nice and relaxed and time to actually talk to people! As a bonus, my son was able to get this awesome one page comic from Trae Dorn, Jackie Crofts, Lee Cherolis, G. Pike, and yours truly!

As you might imagine, super heroes are a thing at my house:

Here is a quick recap of the year so far in photos!

Comics, Games, Geekery, and Cool Stuff Coming At You!

It has been way too long since I’ve told the fine folks that read this site/get my emails about some of the super-cool, super-geeky stuff I’ve been up to.

So, the last Henchmen update I posted to my few but loyal BrianWyrick.com readers was way back in May, promoting the fact we were giving away a free digital preview of the book on free comic book day. A proper update is way overdue, so I am giving friends and family a quick “exclusive” update.

Henchmen had a very successful launch at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con in August of last year. It was pretty great to meet some of our KickStarter backers, and to share booth space with Dave Dorman, as well as bring the book to some new fans. We continue to offer the digital copy of the first issue for free from HenchmenComic.com and we would love it if you continue to send you friends that way if they’d like to get a copy.

Ryan, Jamison, and I are well into the second Henchmen story. We took a bit of a break over the holidays and dropped a three-part Henchmen holiday strip that was a lot of fun as well. Recently our submission of Henchmen to Diamond Comics was accepted, and our KickStarter-backed first issue will be available for retailers everywhere to order from the March issue of Previews, with the next five issues following this summer.

Please be sure to follow Henchmen on Facebook and Twitter, and sign up for email updates if you haven’t already.

We promise to be awesome.

heroesHeroes Wanted 

I’m pretty excited to be working on a board game this year – after launching Henchmen, I began talking with some old friends about a table top card and strategy game they were developing with a super hero theme. Our worlds began to collide, and we will be launching a new KickStarter campaign in a few weeks for Heroes Wanted. It’s a great game with an amazing concept and it’s just plain fun to play.

It’s been really interesting to learn about the board game industry and work on a larger scale manufacturing project. The designers and team behind the game have been working on this for well over a year, play testing at GenCon, Board Game Geek Con, and at countless meet ups, and it is truly a finalized, awesome game. We just wrapped up our first round of video shoots for the KickStarter project, and they also look amazing.

I’ll be updating again soon with videos and details – expect to see some familiar characters here and there!

The project launches soon – be sure to like Heroes Wanted and Action Phase Games on Facebook, sign up for email updates, and follow Action Phase on Twitter.
