Minor Update: I had this big long explanation and then the application crashed and I lost it all. SO here's the short version. I replaced four pages from chapter 2 because they were appalling. I just wanted to try and even out the consistency of the character design for Claire and Ann throughout the chapter. I have a few more pages I want to revise but I think I can fix them without redrawing/inking the whole page(s).
Sorry for the belated update. Six pages to start filling the chapter 3 void.
After that, I'm not sure what will come next or when it will happen. (Sorry, that's the way this stuff works when it's only a hobby.) I might try a couple of short stories in order to have something new and different while backpeddling the ch 3 stuff.
The Super Science Club zine available in the Store and/or Etsy here shortly.
I guess I should also mention I took about half of the SSC comics down from the site in order to try and sell the zine. I'll put them back up when I go through my stock.
Not as old news
Some of the previously mentioned "animated nonsense" below. You can watch it by clicking the image.
Three, four years ago now, I started Chapter 3 and then abandoned it for a re-write. I'm working on filling that gap in now and have six new pages up. (The first page of which is above.) It should be about another 60 pages to finish the chapter. Considering how long it took me to finish chapter 5, who knows how long it will take.
The problem in the mean time is that the new pages throw a wrench into the navigation of the comic since the new content is between chapters 2 and 4. Hopefully the way I have the links set up won't confuse readers tooooo much.
Sorry, this doesn't mean that I'm back to making regular(ish) updates. I'll work on it as I can and still want/need to get a real job. I'm going to jump around from different projects for a bit. I am going to do a four page epilogue to chapter 5 next. And try to make a cover for it. In between everything else I will be working on Super Science Club comics and still have a Company Man comic I want to finish and some animated nonsense.
-Old, old News-
You can reread chapter 5 from the beginning here.
There are chapter notes here if anyone is interested. I wouldn't mind anyone's thoughts about the comic if they wanted to let me know through the facebook page. (Quick note that I've made all the corrections and revisions since putting up the last set of pages, but reserve the right to make more later.)
You might also be interested in these comics that I've been working on throughout the year.
As I mentioned before, I'm not sure what will happen next. I might make a cover and/or a short 3 page epilogue. My original plan after that was to go back and finally fill in the massive hole that is chapter 3. But I think that I'm to the point where I need to stop and get a real job. I'm not going to go into every reason why I have to stop. (It mostly has to do with being unemployed for years and not getting enough freelance to support myself.) I'm just tired of not having things and need to get back to a steady paycheck even if it means moving boxes in a warehouse. I still intend to work on the comic and other things, but they can't be a priority. (I'll probably be working on chapter 3, but won't post until I have a significant buffer.)
I'll probably post something every once and a while though (like the image link below). So keep tuned to the twitter or facebook pages. I have some cool people following me on twitter now and that is a little encouraging!
Thanks again for reading,
