Lab Reject Studios at SDCC!

Big news! A last-minute cancellation* opened up a spot in the Small Press Pavilion of the big one itself, San Diego Comic-Con, so your humble proprietors will be setting up shop after all! (*We have a rock solid alibi. Honest.) Now this news is really only helpful for those of you already lucky enough to be attending the show, but if you are mark down Small Press P-14 as your Lab Reject destination! We're now listed on the website but this opportunity came far too late for us to be in the printed program. In addition to the booth, Dawn will be once again showcasing selected prints and original art of her making in the Art Show, which is located in a roped off corner of the Sails Pavilion (the upstairs area where attendees check in their badges). Check it out Thursday through Saturday and you might find a great piece of 2-d or 3-d artwork at a very competitive bid price! Sorry for the late...

Lab Report 3/24/16

Hello fans and potential specimens! It's been awhile since our last update and we apologize for that. I'm happy to report that the containment fields are holding and there should be no more escape incidents as we pack up the lab for our field expedition to WonderCon 2016, which for this year is to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Dawn has even worked up a handy show floor map for your reference! (CLICK TO ENLARGE)   Now if you haven't gotten your tickets for WonderCon yet and want to come this weekend, there's some bad news and good news. The bad news is the all-day and Saturday passes are sold out. The good news is that Friday and Sunday passes are still available, and at quite decent prices! But here's the catch -- YOU MUST ORDER ONLINE. They won't sell 'em at the door. Here's the link, though, because we are benevolent like that: WONDERCON 2016 BADGES We will have our new Zombie Ranch Trade Paperbacks...

Lab Report 9/5/15

Hi folks! Haven't done a general update in awhile, mostly because we've been busy dealing with the results of a very successful Kickstarter. Thank you to all of you who pledged! The finished book looks great if we do say so ourselves (more importantly, various people we've shown it to agree). Digital rewards have already been delivered and we're hoping to have the physical ones out to all backers inside of a month. Since that's all but done we've decided to roll the mailing list over into a more general "Lab Reject" newsletter, which will still cover Zombie Ranch news in addition to any of our other projects and appearances. Speaking of which, Long Beach Comic-Con is coming up next weekend, September 12th and 13th at the Long Beach Convention Center!   Those of you who are long time followers of the Lab (even from before we were the Lab!) might recall that the inaugural Long Beach convention in 2009 was the first time...

Final Reminder!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/labreject/zombie-ranch-a-tale-of-a-weird-new-west-volume-one The Zombie Ranch Kickstarter will close for pledges this coming Sunday, May 10, at approximately 6:45pm PDT. We realized that we haven't included an image of the intended result of the funding as one of these updates, so here 'tis: If you've already pledged, thank you! If you haven't but were intending to, don't forget! Just two days left!...

Lab Report 5/3/2015

We're back from Free Comic Book Day! Quite a fun time, as usual, as you can see by this image of Dawn doing her best "Ditko Hands" pose: Dawn did a commissioned illustration of a zombified Wonder Woman while there, which you can still likely find on her Instagram account. Meanwhile, the Zombie Ranch Kickstarter enters its final week and is absolutely, positively funded, so if you've been holding off to make sure of that or just waiting for an end-of-the-month payday, now's the time to jump in and secure your copy of the trade paperback printing!...

Funded! Plus FCBD News!

Great news! As of this morning, the Zombie Ranch kickstarter reached 100% funding! But that doesn't mean it's over! So if you haven't pledged yet, there's still plenty of time to get in on the action and help us push towards our first stretch goal! Uncle Chuck's stash is just waiting for us to get our grubby hands on it and pass it out to our qualifying backers, and includes a grab bag of swag such as bookmarks, temporary tattoos, and even custom crafted pendants like so: But the cunning old cuss won't let go of his stash for any less than $3700 in pledges, so we'll have to see how that shakes out when all's said and done. Still 16 days to go! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/labreject/zombie-ranch-a-tale-of-a-weird-new-west-volume-one In the meantime, Free Comic Book Day is coming up on May 2nd, and Dawn and Clint will once again be at Player's Dugout Comics & Cards in Riverside, CA for sales, signings and commissions from 10am until closing. Player's...

Lab Report 4/18/2015

Friends, colleagues, experimental subjects, lend us your ears! Oh, attached to them, are you? Well, now's a great time to (figuratively) talk someone else's ear off about the Kickstarter! The first week has gone well, but we still haven't quite hit the goal mark yet. If you've pledged already, thank you! If you haven't, have you at least gone by and taken a look? We have a purty video and everything for your entertainment. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/labreject/zombie-ranch-a-tale-of-a-weird-new-west-volume-one Since a lot of you on this list signed up at one of our convention appearances, we figure you've got some interest in owning comics in glorious old-school print fashion. This is a great chance to get seven chapters of Zombie Ranch all at once, plus exclusive extras! If you're reading this through an HTML capable client, here's our cool project link graphic to go with the text one above. Come join us on the trail, pardners! ...

Come and Git It!

The Kickstarter is live! Not a hoax! Not a dream sequence! In the next 30 days, a trade paperback GETS FUNDED! Or not... but hopefully! You can, of course, help. Here is the link to the project page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/labreject/zombie-ranch-a-tale-of-a-weird-new-west-volume-one Thanks for your patience! Pledge and we'll see this latest experiment through! Sincerely, Clint & Dawn...

Check! Check! Howdy, out there!

Hi folks! If you're reading this on the website, read on! If you're receiving this as an email it's because at some point you opted in to our Newsletter for updates, in particular regarding our webcomic, Zombie Ranch. Even more in particular, you might be waiting for news about our Kickstarter to collect a trade paperback of the comic. Some of you have perhaps been waiting a long time, enough to barely remember any of that happening. Ahem. Anyhow, this is not the announcement of that Kickstarter. It is, however, being sent to you on what we guess you could call "Kickstarter Eve", because we are about 99% ready to go! We will for sure be sending a follow-up with the live link soon after launch, which barring unseen catastrophe we expect will happen tomorrow evening (Friday PDT). In the meantime we just really want to make sure our MailChimp connection is working! For those of you who aren't aware, our main...
