First Update. Feels Like It’s Actually Happening

I’m sure that the novelty of all of this will eventually wear off, but for the time being I’m going to ride it. I have a two page webcomic. Cool. The site is a lot bigger than it ever was in my mind. RSS feeds, twitter feeds. A blog. These are things that seems to be required any more to be considered an entity worthy of attention in today’s online market. It’s an interesting phenomenon.

The second page can be found here, for all you folks out there than are tuning in via RSS. In which we see more of the backstory of who the Warborne are, and what became of them.

I’m not going to talk too much about what is going on here until the segment is complete, and then maybe do a bit of clarification, if it is needed. I don’t want to get into the habit of supporting the story with supplemental material. If it becomes a requirement it shows I’m doing something wrong. The material should be able to stand on it’s own.

Anyway. Thus starts the week of figuring out how fast I can do this. Of course, the week starts with an eight hour shift at the day job, but , hey, what’s life without a few insurmountable obstacles to bring you down? Actually, I’m pretty confident about things. The past few days I’ve been able to draw just shy of a quarter of a page per day. IF I can do that during the course of a normal week I should be good. I’ll let you know.

Finally Launched! Now What?

Hooray. It’s a day of jubilation! It’s finally here! I can’t tell you how both excited and relieved I am. Believe me. I feel like I can get started on the good work of story telling, which, I think I can say for all of us, is the part that I am really excited about.

There is just a smidge of house cleaning I want to talk about quick before we get into things. I think I might let Logan or Jon talk more about what the site is going to be used for BESIDES our awesome comic. That’s right: we have ideas and thoughts and schemes and stuff, but I won’t go into that right now. I just wanted to address the one BURNING question that just about everyone asks as soon as they hear webcomic;

“How often are you going to update?”

Now, that is a mighty fine question, reader. I’ll just be upfront about it; I’m not sure yet. I have been spending a lot of time over the past month or two preparing art for backgrounds and websites and pinups and Indiegogo stuff, all on top of trying to get a nice backlog of finished pages. I have no idea how quickly I can actually¬†draw a page anymore. I have this sense that I am faster, but I have no idea how fast.¬†It’s going to be one of two scenarios;

1) I do EVERY OTHER Wednesday, reguardless of time of year. Rain, sleet, snow. All that jazz.

2) I do EVERY Wednesday, cause that’s better, more fun. More often. Etc. ‘Cause it is the one every single other person that me would pick. Duh.

Honestly, it all comes down to speed, and time. I’ll take a look at how fast I am now that the dust is starting to settle on the side work. Time is the other big factor. At this point I still have to work a big ol’ day job, and Anthasa provides no income at all. Obviously, I’d like to change that, and we are going to be looking for ways to turn this into a full-time gig. Until then I still need to do the work thing, and that takes away from drawing time. I’m not trying to turn this into a plea for cash, but hey, there is a reason that we made sure to launch before the Indiegogo was over, and why we put a donation button on the site.

Anyway, I’ll be deciding in the next week or so, and will definitely post about it here and on Facebook and Twitter and all of that. I want to be as up front about things as I can, and will do so as much as I possibly can moving forward.

With all that said: Hooray! Finally here! And, well be having our first update this Wednesday. See you then!

Joe
