Spex is working on line-art for the third page AS WE SPEAK, so hold onto your hats. All of your hats, hold them tightly. For the next couple of days. Don't even for a second let your white-knuckled grip falter one bit, or the children will die.
In the meantime, we've got a new podcast for you to listen to. Jeff C joins us as we talk about design a bit, and also a whole heap of other stuff.
The comics should look a lot crisper now, because they've been manually resized by Sef instead of by comicpress automatically resizing. Kind of like if you got a french manicure instead of cutting the tips of your fingers off with a cigar guillotine.
In honor of the comic's beginning, we talk about a lot of beginnings: slow beginnings, beginnings that are better than the things they begin, reboots (a tricky extra beginning). Hope you like it.
First page is up, all clean and gorgeous. Who is this tough customer, you may be asking yourself. Why is he so bad at poker? What is the Everto clan, and what kind of stupid bullshit name is Aduro? Who does this asshole think he is, with his stupid character and his dumb name. I am plugging in a second mouse so I can click the X button with both hands.
EASY. Take a step back. Everything's gonna be revealed in a timely fashion. Because this is just page one of issue one of REIGN IN HELL, and trust me, you don't want to miss a minute.
Look for updates on Tuesdays. Possibly in the future we'll be increasing that to Tuesdays and Fridays, likely around break times. Sef and I are both in school and busy as bees honing our skills. We've also got a Big Idea regarding a podcast, which, in tandem with our webcomic, should make us the coolest guys in 2004.
I'd like to personally thank Julian (Rolo at the penny-arcade forums) and Jon, who does an amazing comic called Alpha-Flag which you should definitely be reading, for helping my unsavvy ass get this website off the ground. It's like I'm the dimwit husband in all those commercials they used to air so much in the nineties, all stupidly trying to open a digital camera to get the film out or sticking stamps on an email, and they are my self-assured Special K-munching wives who solve all my ignorant caveman problems. Thank you!
