• Wallapalooza II

    Hey guys,

    Got a few more wallpapers to present. The first two were posted a few months ago, and the last one is from just this week. Hope you enjoy them!

    1. Looking Glass, from the sixth chapter of Skies are Falling, by the one and only Daniel Allen:

    2. Breaking Up, also from chapter 6 of Skies are Falling, and also by Daniel Allen:

    3. Tunnel, from the third chapter of Transmissions Intercepted, 100% by Anthony Cournoyer:

    They've all been added to the freebies section.

    Plenty more comics are on the way,

    -Jason

  • Wallapalooza

    Hey everybody,

    Figured I'd break radio silence to announce the three new wallpapers we've got in the freebies section.

    1. Cavalry, from the first chapter of Transmissions Intercepted, by our very own Anthony Cournoyer:

    2. Space Flight, from chapter 2 of Skies are Falling, by the multi-talented Daniel Allen:

    3. Cockpit, from chapter 4 of Skies are Falling, also by Daniel Allen:

    Cavalry was added a couple months ago, and I just uploaded the two from Skies are Falling tonight. Hopefully in a few months I'll have another two or three to post!

    See you on Tuesday when I post the new update,

    -Jason

  • Carpe Chaos News Roundup (December 28th, 2012)

    Happy New Year everyone! It's been a while since our last update, and so here is another update. PREPARE TO BECOME UPDATED!

    We've been working behind the scenes on quite a few things. Aside from Skies are Falling and volume 2 of Transmissions, we've got a new story by Eric Carter in the works. I can't share the title or the plot of the comic yet, but I can say it concerns the Xotron and it's a collaboration between Brandon Leach and Shoham "Leo" Charikar, two artists that have each created a considerable amount of concept art for us when we were still in pre-production mode. Here's some past Carpe Chaos concept art from Brandon, a Porg ship:

    And here's some past Carpe Chaos concept art from Leo, a Porg city:

    The story should be about 35 pages and it should be AMAZING! I've added Brandon and Leo to the About the Team page, with portraits painted by the very same Leo. Check out their biography snippets if you want to look them up on DeviantArt.

    We've added another comic to our ad rotation, which brings us to a total of 9 advertisers. If you haven't clicked these links yet, they're all worth your attention:

    Other news: We got into Comic Con again! So we'll be there this July at small press table Q-13, just like last year! Already looking forward to it!

    That's about it. Just focusing on making comics, making comics, making comics. Mmm mmm comics.

  • Had a blast at APE 2012

    So I was at APE this weekend. What, you don't believe me?! In that case, here's PROOF:

    See?! I was there!!!

    Thanks to everyone that stopped by my table and talked with me about the comic! I had a great time talking about Carpe Chaos and comic stuff in general with everyone that stopped by. The papercraft models were a hit as always:

    I'm so happy we have Nate in papercraft form now. It feels so much more like a complete set.

    And it was great to catch up with Antidote Trust members Dale and Khalid, who watched over my table while I was out snatching up awesome comics and toys:

    Pro guys are pro.

    In other news, we're just a week away from finishing volume 1 of Transmissions, all 4 chapters of it. After that we'll dive into chapter 4 of Skies are Falling, and then it's on to the start Tranmissions volume 2! Yeah! Comicscomicscomicscomicscomics.

    • CHAPTER 3 OF TRANSMISSIONS FROM FARA NEXA IS COMPLETE AND COMPLETELY UPLOADED! YEAH! CLICK HERE TO READ IT!

    • YET ANOTHER WALLPAPER FOR EVERYONE! THEY KEEP ON COMING! THIS ONE IS FROM CHAPTER 3 OF TRANSMISSIONS AND LIKE THE OTHERS IT WAS DRAWN BY THE TALENTED AND AMAZING ANTHONY COURNOYER (CLICK FOR LARGER):



    • OUR 4 LATEST WALLPAPERS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO OUR WEBSTORE, AND THERE HAS BEEN A HUMONGOUS PRICE DROP! YOU CAN OWN A 16''X9'' POSTER OF ANY OF OUR 10 WALLPAPERS FOR THE LOW LOW PRICE OF $5.99 EACH!

    • SAN DIEGO COMIC CON WAS AWESOME! WE SOLD OUT OF OUR BOOKS AND SOME OF OUR FLOPPY COMICS! READ ABOUT IT IN ERIC'S BLOG POST! AT THIS RATE, WE'LL SELL THE LAST OF OUR CARPE CHAOS: IGNITION BOOKS AT APE IN OCTOBER!

    • I WAS INTERVIEWED ON BUYINDIECOMICS.COM! AM I INTERESTING? CLICK THIS LINK TO FIND OUT!

    • ALLCAPS MODE, DEACTIVATE! Chapter 4 of Transmissions from Fara Nexa is coming soon. The first page should be posted either Monday or Tuesday of next week. Probably Tuesday. But the sad news is that we are slowing our release rate to 1-2 pages per week for the foreseeable future. Please don't think that Carpe Chaos is ending or anything like that. It's just that we've been pushing ourselves for over two years to post (on average) more than a page every two days and because this project hasn't caught fire in the way that we'd hoped, we're slowing down to reclaim a bit of our personal lives :-). Thank you for being a fan of Carpe Chaos up to now and I hope you'll stay with us because we've got some crazy awesome things planned for Transmissions Volume 2, more suspense-filled mystery in Skies are Falling, and even more stories on the horizon. And hopefully some more free wallpapers :-)

  • San Diego 2012 Recap

    Phew, things have finally calmed down in the post San Diego Comiccon rush long enough for me to write a recap. We had an amazing show! More people than ever came up to our table and recognized our comic, and we sold out of both Jailing Fortune #1 and Carpe Chaos Ignition! Truly a banner year for SDCC! :D

     

    We sold out. It was this epic.

     

    Our table started a little cluttered:

     

    Carpe Chaos's SDCC 2012 booth

     

    But then my graphic designer friend Trevor said we should try a sparser look, less is more, that kinda thing, and he was totally right:

    A less cluttered table

     

    The sparser layout made it much easier to highlight the concetrated awesome in every single item. 

     

    It's funny cause when we started doing this, I thought of myself as a very bad salesman. But now after something like our 12th con, my friends were complimenting how great of a saleman I was. Trying to sell stuff 900 times a day for 10 days is good practice I guess. :)

     

    Hope to see you at SDCC next year!

  • Carpe Chaos News Roundup (July 6th, 2012)

    Time again for a monthly NEWS ROUNDUP! Here's some Carpe Chaos news... FOR YOU!!

    • The first three chapters of Skies are Falling are done! The story's going to be on a break for a couple of months while we continue the Transmissions saga, but it will return when volume 1 of Transmissions is done!
    • Meanwhile chapter 3 of Transmissions Volume 1, otherwise known as Transmissions from Fara Nexa, has begun! We're uploading new pages all this month, with a new page every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. And when chapter 3 is done we're planning on going straight to chapter 4, which will conclude Volume 1.
    • Eric will be at San Diego Comic Con next weekend, July 12th through the 15th! If you're going, please please please give him a visit at small press table Q 13. He'll be there with all of our books, posters, shirts, papercraft models, bookmarks, and more! Everyone who stops by will get a free papercraft Porg and papercraft Kaean to put together.

  • Carpe Chaos News Roundup (June 6th, 2012)

    Carpe Chaos isn't dead! And here's the latest news to prove it:

    • Daniel made a new page that I added to the end of all of our stories. It should prevent new readers from thinking the first story they read is the only story we've got. Check it ouuuuuut:



    • More new artwork! We made an 8th free wallpaper, taken from chapter 5 of The Myth of Midigan, which by the way is now done, so go read it. Anyway here's the wallpaper of the bad-ass fish-squid monster (click for larger):



    • The papercraft models of Nate and Pieca from Jailing Fortune are now free for download for everyone. Click here to download them, print them out, and assemble them!




      Enjoy! Nate was also featured on paperkraft.net.

    • I've got a couple of blog mentions from last month to let you know about:
    • LASTLY! AN ALL-NEW CARPE CHAOS STORY BEGINS ON JUNE 11TH! IT'S GONNA BE GREAT! SEE YOU THEN!
