Past, Present, Future

So for those of you who have been wondering what this all is for, here’s what’s going on.

  1. Past.   This spring, I taught a cartooning elective at my high school and I made this random, one page sci-fi comic that didn’t have a story to go with it.  I posted it on Facebook, someone asked if I was going to finish the story, I said if someone wrote one for me, and Ben jumped in with a story idea that eventually became “The Hunt.”  We shared it with people, some of them liked it, we had a lot of fun.
  2. Present.  After tabling an idea for a Lovecraft Western for being too ambitious, Ben and I decided to follow up “The Hunt” with something slightly longer but still self-contained.  Right now I’ve drawn 17 pages of “The Year of the Dragon” and only have 4 more before its finished.  As we wrap that up, we’re planning a regular, on-going comic that is currently under the working title of “Voyages.”  Most of the sketches I’m posting are brainstorming for that.  Currently Ben’s outlined about 7 story-arcs, and I’m working on character drawings.  Right now “Voyager Comics” has this blog, a Facebook Page, a Tumblr, a Twitter feed, and a really bare-bones site hosted at Comic Fury, where you can read “The Hunt” in its entirety.
  3. The Future.  “The Year of the Dragon” should be finished in a week or so.  Once it is, we’ll be publishing it on-line twice a week, which should take about 10 weeks.  During that time we’ll be starting on “Voyages” (or whatever the final title is), so by the time “Year of the Dragon” is published in its entirety, we should be ready to roll out the on-going story.  My hope is to get us a “real” web-site, but I don’t want the creativity to get bogged down in technical nonsense.  If anyone reading this wants to trade web-site design for some art, let me know . . .
