Book Launch for “Last Night at Wyrmwood High” on March 3rd

last night cover short 2
We at Cloudscape are excited to announce the official launch of Last Night at Wyrmwood High, a tale by Kathleen Gros that’s full of wit, witches, and other things that start with “W.” This story stars three teenage monsters: a vampire, a werewolf, and a lizard-girl, who are about to graduate their monster high school and decide to perform one last prank just before they leave… but things aren’t as easy as they think. Wyrmwood High has been serialized on the Internet as a webcomic over the past year and now has achieved its final form as a beautifully printed book: Cloudscape’s first single-story graphic novel.

The launch party for Wyrmwood High will be at Lucky’s Comics on Thursday, March 3rd, at 7:00 PM. Lucky’s is located on 3972 Main Street, Vancouver, BC.

Sign-up on the launch’s Facebook event and we hope to see you all there!

Last Night at Wyrmwood High Kickstarter

Wyrmwood Secondary School has had the same grad prank for the past 50 years. This year Amber (a werewolf), Tiffany (a vampire), and Steph (a reptile) have set out to change that. The problem is that the school is cursed. And the end of school (forever) isn’t going to go as planned….

Last Night at Wyrmwood High is written and drawn by Kathleen Gros. This is Cloudscape’s first book to feature a single artist’s vision in its entirety. Our fundraiser has started at the Last Night at Wyrmwood High Kickstarter. Please order yours today and help us make this book a reality.

Cloudscape Under Construction

Cloudscape HQ is under construction

Hello, everyone. Just a quick emergency announcement to let you all know that Cloudscape HQ is going to undergo some renovations this week so our building will be closed until Friday evening. All events and open studio times are cancelled for this week. That includes this Wednesday’s meetup at the HQ. But fear not, we will still be having the meeting. It will be a throw-back to the good ol’ days of Cloudscape, 7:30 pm at the Grind Cafe (our old meetup location), 4124 Main St.

Hope to see you all there, and sorry for the inconvenience.

cheers,

Jeff

Call for Submissions: Bones of the Coast 1

pacific northwest

Cloudscape’s newest anthology, Bones of the Coast, is looking for submissions! Edited by Cloudscape’s very own Jeff Ellis, Shannon Campbell, and Kathleen Jacques, Bones of the Coast is a collection of horror inspired by the Pacific Northwest. We’re looking for story pitches that focus on isolation and spine-tingling eeriness, whether it lurks in cold pebbled coves, between skeletal spruces, or atop ancient mountains. This anthology of bone-chilling horror will feature work from such collaborative teams as Sfé R. Monster & Evan Dahm, Sam Logan & Kris Straub, and Emily Partridge & KC Green.

Pitches must feature at least ONE British Columbian collaborator; stories can be anywhere from 1-13 pages and will be in full, horrifying colour.

Head on over to bonesofthecoast.tumblr.com to learn more about the anthology, check out the submission guidelines, and submit your pitch!  Deadline is August 15th!

Charlie Hebdo

In light of recent events, the Cloudscape board would like to state what should be obvious: that we support every cartoonist’s right to draw cartoons without fear of violent consequences. Whether that cartoonist is in France facing terrorist attack, in Syria facing imprisonment and possible execution, or in Indonesia facing government censorship, the pen should never be silenced and the only acceptable weapon against the use of free speech should be an equal use of free speech.
