I’ve never been a huge fan of honoring the letter of a law while clearly violating the spirit of an agreement or rule…but that’s how I imagine a shady pair like Hunter and Jasoom manages to sleep at night, and even then, with one eye open. I also believe that such things are particularly important in fantasy, settings where magic words have power and otherworldly entities can grant impossible wishes.

I’m sorry that I haven’t been more forthcoming with commentary and tales of interest lately. Between Hunter Black, Evil Dead 2, trying to wrangle the Rocket Queen creative team, trying to remember to do press (damn it, one more thing I have to do tonight), and the ever-increasing number of secret projects that I have on my plate, I find my brain isn’t suited for “small talk” at the moment.

April and May promise to be difficult months, because my writing life will busy, my night job will be busy, and I have to make time for a wife who already doesn’t love my schedule. On the plus side, I just got the Netflix app on my phone, so I can watch DS9 in bed with headphones, without disturbing her.

Have a great week, all. If and when things slow down, I’ll fill you in on all the haps.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: sometimes I feel bad about scenes like these, that are more about the talky-talky and less about the hack-and-slash. Still, I hope we’re managing to make these interesting…I mean, yeah! What IS Jasoom’s angle in all of this? (Besides being one of my most favorite characters ever.) It feels a little…I don’t know, conceited to be a fan of a character that *I* created, but I totally am. I find him tremendously fun to write.

You know, that begs the question: who are the characters in the comic that you all connect to or root for? I mean, if you’re coming back week after week, I assume that you’re a fan of Hunter’s but what about the others? I know that there was at least one reader that LOVED Jobo of all people, I know another reader that really digs Jasoom…did anybody like Maliya Pel? What about Kalabari of the Unseen? Setheen/Castigan? Iosephus?

I’m just curious. Is it Hunter that brings you back most of all, or do the other characters capture your interest as well?

The Known World isn’t “high” fantasy; the normal citizen of the world worship the gods and fear The Thirteen…but they don’t encounter tons of magic just out in the streets. It speaks to the kinds of lives that Hunter and Jasoom live that they can find the time to snipe at each other as they stand next to a brazier filled with skulls burning with black fire.

I don’t think that when we first started this comic, we intended for there to be magic on every street corner, and there hasn’t been exactly, but we have reached a point where Hunter has gotten used to the incredible, which I supposed is the lot of all (anti-)heroes that have ongoing adventures.

I just woke up from a poorly timed nap that I never really meant to take, so this is going to be brief. (I hope I’ll be able to fall asleep tonight!) I have to out to dinner with friends of my wife tonight, and before that, I have some Evil Dead 2 pages to get done.

I should also consider doing some laundry, now that I think about it….yeah, I think this is the end of the road for today’s extra commentary!
