Welcome to Fintan Studios. Browse and enjoy.
All the latest news for October:
Been a long while since we've had an update... Just got a cool review in from Marc Mason at Movie Poop Shoot in his "Should it be a Movie?" column. Great stuff - and we agree with Marc, by the way. You just might see a movie yet...
Off to San Diego Comic-con International. If you're going to the convention, check us out in the small press area, number R5. See ya there!
Many thanks to Patrick Neighly for the interview at Newsarama. Things are moving along, and we hope to have preview pages from artist Jason Baroody posted here soon.
Call it official, now. the forgotten: charitable causes, volume II of the series will be a 48-page color one-shot written by Evan Young and Jareth Grealish and drawn by Jason Baroody, with an anticipated release date of July 22nd, 2004. Fintan Studios: ain't no half-steppin' in our third straight publishing year.
It's almost official - the forgotten will be hitting the shelves again, this time with an all-new second story. The format: one-shot, 48-pages in full color. The artist: no commitments yet, but it is looking like a fella named Jason Baroody is stepping up to the plate to supply the artwork. The story: ahh... top secret. It is, after all, a mystery title... check it often for updates, and we'll keep bringing you the latest.
It's (at least semi-) official: Evan is 25,000 words deep on THE FORGOTTEN... in novel form. If he's not done by the summer, heads will roll. So if you like books instead of this comic book kid's stuff, help Evan find a publisher.
Welcome to the New Year! We hope you had a great holiday and are as excited as we are for 2004. We are working on putting out something new - stay tuned for more details and updates as they come along.

Printer troubles! If you have preordered the trade paperback, we're sorry to say that unavoidable problems at the printer have set us back by about three weeks, which means that the trade will be shipping late. However, don't worry! It's at a reliable printer as we speak, and will be on the shelves and in your hands in mid-August.
Back from the con, and what a great time it was. Rest assured, there are many exciting things in the future for Fintan and "the forgotten," but we can't tell you anything yet. Stay tuned.
Off to San Diego! More updates when we return...
