KnightShift Entertainment was founded in 1999.
Starting out as a simple one many studio with the goal of getting my work seen by the masses, I worked for an small press publisher, who will remain nameless so I can trash them later on without getting my chastised for it. I will say they were not as committed as I was.
Anyway, after completing my first book with them they shit canned the whole thing by convincing my artist that he was not good enough to do the book. So when he bailed on me I was surprised until the truth came out. I continued to work with them for a while, writing stories and such that never saw the light of day. Big surprise there. So finally in 2000 I left the company and decided that I would put together my own comics and self publish. So I approached Dustin Weaver and Joe Fauvel, both of whom where shit on by this company and together we started working on Assassins Guild. Yes, I know, 3 issues in 8 years. It has been slow going. But we do not do this full time. We have to work and some of us...okay, just me...has a family to raise.
So in 2003 we released Assassins Guild #0 and hit it big and now we are all rich and famous!! Well, not quite. We have done pretty good for ourselves. Dustin is now working with Dark Horse and Marvel. The rest of us are working on getting the book out there. We have a new artist, BAZ, who is kicking out the last pages of Assassins Guild #4 and ready to get started on the new story arch.
During the life of KSE, we have faced many challenges, including big time douche bags who promise to pick up the book and then suddenly ZOOM off and leave us high and dry. No big deal. We have 3 issues of Assassins Guild. Joe just finished his second CRY book, which I will be posting for sale very soon. And we have made a lot of great friends and contacts in the industry.
Our future plans are to put together an anthology book called KnightShift Showcase which sole purpose is to get unknowns published and let the fan decided what they want to see more of. I also am looking for that next big project that we will work to get published. For these things I will be adding information to the Series Proposal and KnightShift Showcase section so that if you have something to show us you will know how to do it.
Well, that pretty much all there is to know.
