But the Art is Fantastic!

We continue on with the story and you can have a look at a rather confusing conversation here. I can only imagine what spending your time with someone who is THAT energetic is like. Part of me thinks that it would actually be pretty fun. The gnomes are one of my favorite creations for the game, though when the party is going to be spending a lot of time in their home city of Gizmorian, I often have to juice myself up with a couple of Redbulls in order to give them the experience they deserve.

I have a lot more time to draw on my hands recently, so production is going to go pretty smoothly.

I’m assuming that many of you out there are comic book readers as well as webcomic readers. I could be wrong, but I know I am. I tend to collect certain issues more for the artists that I do for the writing, which annoys the hell out of certain of my friends. Even I admit, I collect some really terrible damn stuff just because of who happens to be drawing it. (Savage Wolverine for the Joe Mad run, for example) Every once in a while I find something that is really well drawn and well written though, and that makes it worth it, if you ask me.

Right now I’d have to say that “Wake” by Snyder/Murphy has to be at the top of that list. It’s a great survival horror story that is shaping up to be really cool. I’m being reminded of movies like ‘The Abyss” and “Predator” as I’m reading, and there’s some really great sci-fi concepts they are exploring, too. It’s at issue for of a ten issue run, so it’s not too far along if you are interested. I think my only complaint is that it has not been too consistent about it’s release, but hey, I’m not going to be a very loud complainer on that front.
