I'll try to do this on a bi-weekly basis - as long as interest holds. I have a good idea of where I want overall narrative arc to go - despite this being a work-in-progress.
The quote on Issue #1, page 3 is from Dostoevsky. For space reasons, I omitted the name to conserve space.
I've never written a comic outside of doodles in class. It's a challenging medium to work in. You have the careful attention to language, the space considerations, and the need for strong visual-thinking.
This is a challenge as I come from a published-writing background - with few visual arts skills outside of computers.
I hope to have a new issue up shortly - and longer too! I wanted just a little teaser to generate interest (which motivates me to work on another in turn).
EDIT: I'm working on posting the rough sentence outlines of each episode for the first season - with spoilers before their release date. First Season should be 12 episodes. Release dates depending on a number of factors, including college.
