Among other things, “The Death of Perseus” is up now on Amazon.com. Working on getting it sent to Kindle today, but file conversion is going kinda slow. In other news, wow! Preston really got it in this latest installment of the comic, eh? For those of you who don’t care for the gory stuff, be advised that this scene goes on for one more page before things start to get better. The comic will (nominally) update on Wednesday with new content until we get to Act IV, and then we will run 3x per week with the modified versions of the original comics. Naturally, Thanksgiving week in the U.S. threw us off, and Keith was at a big convention earning his rice bowl (as the Sand Pebbles would say). So that’s why we are posting last week’s page today.
You all recall my old pal, Keith W., who draws Mysteries of the Arcana and for a time, The Lavenders, right? Well, coming VERY SOON, he will be drawing Starship Moonhawk again, and I will be coloring. We are trying to get Act III done ASAP so we can get it and the closing acts of this storyline completed, once and for all. It’s been a strange, 13-year journey with many missteps and a lot of high points, but I want to put this chapter of my life to rest. A large motivating factor for this is that an actual animated feature has never been more imminent, and I need to clear my creative slate so I can focus on it. Which means completing “The Fire and the Forge”, which is the basis for said film. so, watch this space, Cadets. the Moonhawk will be blasting its way back to your screens before you know it.
While waiting for the updates I’ve been promising (small personal crisis?), check out the novels published in the series. hell, even my dad bought them, so they MUST be good, right?! We also have the first Act of “The Mercadian Affair” available on DriveThru comics! I’m working on Act II, but I have three pages I must color before I can feel completely legitimate about putting it up for sale. Odd, but interesting fact: I do not replace pages once posted unless I am rebooting the entire series. So if you want to see the updated, corrected and (finally) colored pages of the series, help us out! Buy our comics and see the (vastly) improved pages (in most cases XD)!
Secondly: if you do do not wish to patronize us on a recurring basis, I have the luxury of always having the PayPal donation “tip jar” on the opposite side. You really don’t get much by way of rewards there, but you can toss us a couple bucks to keep the series moving forward.
Patrons may notice I am actually courting a number of artists to take on the artist role in the series. In the past, I’ve worked with Nekoshiei, Marie Tary, Grace Allison and Diana Chen. Currently, I am seeking to work with Javier Bordon, Keith W. (also of Mysteries of the Arcana and The Lavenders fame), and I tried working with Neko-rulz, but… I’m not fully sure what happened there. If you continue to contribute there, you can help me hire some of these fine artists to continue the webcomic when I am unable. so please consider joining. I’ve posted a LOT of stuff over there.
