The Silent Invasion – Work-in-Progress!

We are eagerly awaiting the release of the first volume of  The Silent Invasion on September 1. As you may know, the first two volumes will reprint material that NBM first published thirty years ago, and volume three will feature work completed in 2005 but never released in album form.

But volume four will feature brand new material that we are working on right now!

Michael Cherkas is on vacation at the moment and so I am going to take this opportunity to share a couple of pages of work in progress from that new album!

SI_World_Tour_Revised

Both Larry Hancock and I will be appearing at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland on September 15. And then through the magic of Amtrak we’ll be at the Brooklyn Book Festival on September 16.

If you’re in the area, and want to talk about conspiracies, secret government organizations, the Great Alien-Earth War of 1943, alien-human hybridization, the perils of the deep state, or why there were once two teams with the same nickname in the 9-team CFL look for us at the NBM booth and Larry will be happy to answer all your questions.

We’ll have more details in soon.

Here’s a scene from one of our previous appearances at a comic book convention.

The Silent Invasion – More early promotional material

Back when we originally released The Silent Invasion as a comic book, we heavily promoted it within the comic book media. We prepared a new ad to tease each issue just before its release. In a previous posting I shared the ad which heralded the release of the first issue.

Here are the ads that led up to the release of issues #2 to #6

Some Lost Art of The Silent Invasion

lost_art_03_small

Here are some lost sketches from The Silent Invasion. Some of these were done as convention sketches while you’re sitting around wondering when someone will come by your table and talk to you. Others were cover roughs, and I’ve included an old ad we created for Renegade Press promoting our third issue back in the day of floppy comics. The art for this ad has been adapted for the cover of NBM’s second volume, The Great Fear.

You can tell that in the above sketch, Matt Sinkage is not worried about the alien takeover. There are no flying drops of sweat or crazed worry lines. He has obviously already been brainwashed by The Deep State into believing the alien takeover of American institutions will be a positive development.

Here’s a cover rough…

Below is the old ad for Renegade Press and the new cover for NBM’s upcoming second volume of The Silent Invasion. The ad was scanned from the original “paste-up.” Remember those days using waxers and X-acto knives or scalpels? You really had be on the ball so you didn’t bleed all over the art board…
