So, it's 2013. We've got some new ideas, and (hopefully) the tme and means to implement them.  In the meantime, we're wrapping up HEROIC TALES #2, and Dirk Grobb and I will be on hand to sell and sign copies at MEGACON March 15-17th! 
Aw yeah! Look for us in ARTIST ALLEY, BURGUNDY Tables 5A and 6A, with buddy Neil Jorge in the middle at 5B!
Mention actually visiting this site and get a free print! Signed no less!

My gosh, it's been a looooong time since I updated anything here, and since they used last years link to this site as a hot link for my name on the MEGACON page, I figured i better add a lil' summin'-summin'!
I got so caught up in TWITTER :!/SebPiccione and CAT. 5's facebook page:!/pages/Cat-5/111027179694 that I've been neglecting this early attempt at a CAT. 5 site.
In THEORY, I really will have up and running soon.  Visit it now if you want to laugh at my techno-ineptitude.
Anyway, the countdown to MEGACON 2012 has begun. This year's Orlando MEGACONVENTION is Friday feb. 17th - Sun Feb. 19th.  I'll be there with CAT. 5 #0, collecting my (Sebastian Piccione) and Mike Dreher's short stories from the Lady Fight anthologies. Mike, Matt (Mastorism, Explosion Proof) Grant and I have left Earthbound Comics to do our own things.  Look for our new reboot of his EXPLOSION PROOF coming in 2012.

Back to MEGACON. I'll be at ARTIST ALLEY TABLE YELLOW 14 with Nelson Ortega. We'll have our CONVERSION story and (hopefully) DET. CO., a crime/detective story.  Kevin Little and Joe Kuzma will be next to us at YELLOW 15. Joe has several works, including our ALLIED FORCES, whereas Kevin and i will have our patriotic team story, UNITED SUPER AMERICANS.
Hopefully Neil Jorge and Willie Freeman will be with us, as well.

And, finally, Here's Mike Dreher's gorgeous cover to CAT. 5 #0, featuring our Hurricane Heroine and her foes, The Bull-Shark, Guerilla Gorilla, and The Pirate Captain.

Well, we're getting ready to wind down 2010 and looking towards the 2011 and beyond!

Sorry, I haven't updated in a while, but I've been busy...and things are starting to pay off. 

CAT. 5 is heading into LADY FIGHT #4, for the end of the year, and we have plans to do a #0 issue for early 2011. We're also hoping to get her ongoing (but not quite monthly) title started in the new year, as well.

But, that's not all.  Nelson Ortega (Spectacular Spider-Man, Sonic: The Hedgehog, Silver Sable, Street Sharks) has joined up for some back-up features in the ongoing, wih a new character (who's actually 20 year's old---I created him in high School), THE BUG.

Plus, we have some other titles coming up, but more on them later!

Oh yeah, things are moving!
Like the header says, there's a lot going on at the moment!  First, Artist Mike Dreher and I have finished a 10 page zombie story for THE GRIM CREW'S zombiepocalypse anthology, DEAD FUTURE # 5, due out later this summer.

But, we're not sitting on our laurels waiting for that.  In fact, I'm not sure if we even have laurels, nor if they're something one REALLY wants to sit on. We've been hard at work on CAT. 5 #0. That's right, a full issue of hurricane powered goodness!  I've got the final story all written, and Mike has started the artwork.  CAT. 5 #0 will reprint the first two CAT. 5 stories from LADY FIGHT, plus it will feature an all new 8 pager that sets things up for the CAT. 5 series.

Oh, and did I mention this time it'll all be in COLOR!!??  OOOoooo! AAAAaaaah!

It looks like we've found ourselves a colorist (more on that at another time) and he's going to color the B&W LADY FIGHT stories, as well as the new story, giving us 26 pages of full color CATEGORY 5 adventures! 

Oh, yeah! it's on!!

Living the charmed life that I do, I have great news! I've gotten a MEGACON UPGRADE...again! Yes, I, Sebastian Piccione, and the rest of the EARTHBOUND TABLE will now be at INDEPENDENT PRESS SECTION: TABLE RED 4, which is right off a main aisle, right next to the CELEBRITY SIGNING section! So, while you're waiting for Nichelle Nichols or Billy Dee Williams' autograph line to lighten up, stop by, chat, pick up a shirt, print, sketch, or comic!  We'll be lookin' for you!

MEGACON is march 12th-14th at the ORLANDO CONVENTION CENTER, in (you guessed it) Orlando Florida!

This is your new blog post. Click here and start typing, or drag in elements from the top bar.
CAT. 5 writer/creator Sebastian Piccione will be attending MEGACON from MARCh 12th - 14th. Look for him at the EARTHBOUND COMICS table, BLUE 8, in the INDEPENDENT PRESS section.  He'll be signing LADY FIGHT: ESCALTION and the new LADY FIGHT: AGGRESSION, both featuring CAT. 5 stories. He'll also have signed prints, t-shirts, and the entire EARTHBOUND COMICS line.  Aww yeah, good times ahead!

Here is the completed 1st page to the new story, BLOW ME DOWN, for March's LADY FIGHT #3, written by SEBASTIAN PICCIONE, drawn and shaded by MIKE DREHER, and lettered by MATT GRANT. I love this page, because Mike did such a great job of interpretting everything I wrote. My panels writing runs all or nothing, I'm either totaly open, and Mike can do as he will, or I'm totally pedantic, and overdescribe EVERYTHING.  Here, Mike did a great job of cathing our heroine in her Kathleen Day identity, at her family's business, 7 DAYS REAL ESTATE. He worked in the little file in her hands, with an actual old address of mine; the campny logo, the palm tree to remind everyone this is Florida, the picture of Kath's family, and Kath's 1973 Plymouth Duster.  And yes, I chose that car for her because they had the little whirlwind logo on the side. Sure, you can't see that logo here, as the back of the car is off-panel, but I like these little visual puns.  Look at the first story, CARD SHARK, and check out kath's glass on the cruise. She's drinking a Hurricane.  Yes, her cellphone is a Blackberry STORM. 

I'm a sad little man, but I have fun!
