…how much work I can get done in a day and have none of it be actual writing.
Today I’ve worked on advertising initiatives like CRAZY, as well as putting a Hunter Black package available for purchase and download on Comixology (pending acceptance and processing, I imagine it’ll be at least two months before it’s actually available to the public).
I’m fortunate to have lots of projects that I can work on, and fascinatingly, I can do lots of work and NOT WRITE.
I guess this is the life of PUBLISHING, which was never an occupation I sought, as opposed to simply WRITING. But I must do one so I can do the other.
Anyway, that’s my whine of the day.
I leave for New York Saturday morning, I’ll be there for a week.
This means I only have 5 days out of the 7 to get everything I need to get done. Ugh!
Because I’ll be gone next week that means Justin will be in control of posting the comic, hopefully he can manage without me.
When Will emailed me to tell me that he was putting up a little contest to see what kind of scripts people would come up with for the page we posted without dialogue, I personally didn’t love the idea. I think a too-serious part of me didn’t want to make light of the fact that we were running late, even though I wasn’t really bothered by it because I knew our lateness would be measured in hours rather than days.
Boy, was I wrong. This is one of the best things EVAR.
Admittedly, this is a bit more…adult…than our usual fare, and our apologies for that, but I found this too funny to not post. I mean, every time I reread it, I laugh out loud. I have tears in my eyes as I’m typing this. The dialogue suits everyone’s facial expressions SO WELL, especially the first and last lines.
UPDATE: Looks like I’M the D-Bag, I completely forgot to credit this to Aaron Wilsford, who posted it on our Facebook page. Aaron, I will be reaching out to you so we can send you a poster.

Some of our more observant readers might have noticed that Tuesday’s comic doesn’t have any text.
It seems that one of Jacob’s lab experiments has backfired and he is currently lost between dimensions.
I figure I would post at least the page I have so you guys can see where we are heading. If anyone you want, try and write your own script. If you do, throw it up on our facebook page. Best page I’ll send a poster.
Now I’m off to use techno-magic to create a rift in warp time and pull Jacob from the brink of null-existence.
…how much Maliya Pel looks like Danielle Corsetto’s avatar of herself for her webcomic, Girls With Slingshots. This was completely unintentional; I don’t think Will reads it, and that design is almost wholly his. I know I contributed some comments about her hair and her style of dress, and our discussions all centered around the idea that Maliya is a no-nonsense fighter, a practical woman who would dress in a way that suits her style of fighting. Hence the short hair and the (usually) snug clothing.
This is particularly amusing to me because of this, which looks a lot like me a haircut ago. And if you bothered to click the link, I can attest to the difficulties of dreadlocks and Santa hats.
Anyway, I got a chuckle out of that, and I think Danielle did too.
