That’s right. In one week, ANOMALIES Episode 5: “Wash! Rinse! DETONATE!” will make Tuesdays “Danger-ous” once more.
Having read & reread Dave Thomas’ script (ad infinitum,) I think I have a pretty good feel for what’s to come and how to storyboard that movie it makes in my head. With such great inspiration from reading Joe St. Pierre’s NEW ZODIAX titles and Adaptive Studios’/ Paperfilm’s (Jimmy Palmiotti & Co.) ABBADON, the creative juices are flowing. I continue to be stoked by last week’s East Coast Comicon, too (see my last post-K.)
So, thanks for your patience while I refueled and we’ll see you April 28th!

Hey, “DANGER-ous” folks!
ANOMALIES Episode 5: “Wash! Rinse! DETONATE!” will hit the ether-webs two weeks from today (Tues., April 28th!) It’s good to take a breather, sit back, plan, and recharge. It’s all about raising that bar…and keeping it on the rise.
Dave Thomas is fine-tuning the script while I doodle it. As stated in previous posts, Dave is working on exciting new ways to bring more “Danger” into our lives.
For me, it’s about recharging. One of the ways I recharged was attending the East Coast Comi-Con on April 11 in Secaucus, NJ. This comi-con was more comics than corporate — the way a comi-con should be, in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that comics are being recognized as a legitimate narrative vehicle. It has created a marketing tsunami (Marvel Comics has had a few movies that have done well at the box office!) However; I don’t think I should have to navigate through huge car displays and people shoving cell phone plans. Yet, I digress…
Oh, yeah…East Coast Comi-con. Yes, I was able to touch base with Jim Steranko, the “Jimi Hendrix” of Comics. Good to get a “face-to-face” with the man rather than our weekly tweet rants (Sunday @ 10pm @iamsteranko on Twitter almost every week. He’s in demand a lot these days because…well,…he deserves it!) Joe St. Pierre (Image, Marvel, etc.) was hawking his wares for his creator-owned “New Zodiax” title. Great to meet this gentleman and great artist, finally. Neal Adams, Simon Bisley, Amy Reeder, Herb Trimpe, etc. ad infinitum! Spending time with these folks stoked my creativity white-hot! My tanks are full and I’m ready to “Detonate” Ep. 5!
So, thanks for your patience. Dave & I will keep you updated.
Mark your calendar, “Danger Days” are Tuesdays again starting April 28th!

This just in…
Herb Trimpe, one of the great artists in comics’ history, passed away Mon., April 13th. I am fortunate to have been able to chat with and thank him for his years of inspiring creativity just 72 hours ago. He was generous with his time; sincere in thanking me for my compliments; and truly appreciated the accolades by generations of fans who came to Secaucus over the past weekend.
On behalf of DANGER COMICS, Dave and I wish to extend condolences to his family, fellow creators, and the fans.
Hello, “DANGER-ous” folks.
Dave & I are refining points for ANOMALIES Ep.5: “Wash! Rinse! DETONATE!” which debuts in a couple of weeks. We endeavor to raise the bar constantly. Dave continues to make this rippin’, time-travel yarn more…well,…RIPPIN’. Let me tell you, “the movie” in my head reading his script is great. I’ve said it many times before, I just have to “storyboard” it. We kind of have a “shorthand” after several issues of ANOMALIES; but this one is going to “blow” your mind, as it did mine (pun intended!) His story is in the great tradition of classic matinée serials more than ever. My doodles have to do this justice!
As publisher, Dave is also researching some great things to create more “DANGER” in our lives. It’s exciting; but I’ll let him tease you more about it.
I’m breaking down ANOMALIES 5 while working on the development of another project that Dave and I will stitch into the growing DANGER COMICS universe.
So stay tuned on the etherwebs; spread the word; and we’ll keep raising that bar.

Hello “DANGER-ous” folks!
I’m working furiously to get ahead on ANOMALIES 5: “Wash! Rinse! DETONATE!”
We’re going to debut it in a couple of Tuesdays from now for the weekly installments you have become accustomed!
In the tradition of the movie serials of the past, we’re constantly raising the bar bringing you this rippin’, scifi, time-travel yarn of a webcomic!
Meanwhile, stay tuned. We’ll be posting updates & announcements. Read ANOMALIES – From the Beginning to revisit past issues (it’s time-travel…you can go back over & over!) There are exciting things in the works at the “DANGER Lab” that we will keep you informed about, as well!
So, thanks for your continued support & tell all your friends & any other sentient lifeforms who are on the ether webs to subscribe (I know a dolphin with WIFI.)
All the best!

I get a little shiver down my spine when I type #NYCC – and there’s a good reason why.
Every year, Karl and I have met top industry leaders, and all manner of other comic professionals, and the benefits, insights, and fellowship, and just good old gemulichkeit!
We’ve had a big year, with ANOMALIES running new pages every week (minus September, where we caught our breath).
Now, with the commencement of an action-packed, time-bending issue four, we’ve finally got some great readers on board for the roller coaster ride to come, and we are greatly chuffed.
But, we very greedily want more, so we can turn this into a sustaining, on-going universe for our coming heroes to inhabit.
The Danger Universe (ahem), if you will.
With that in mind – Karl & I will be at that wonderful event we look forward to each year – New York Comic-Con.
I’ll be there on Thursday, and Friday. Karl will be there on Friday, as well.
We’ll try to get to the Wi-Fi friendly area and post our thoughts on the proceedings. Follow us: @KarlOttersberg @davenav @DangerComics1
Oh, and enjoy Issue for — it’s a slam-banger!!!
