Will our dynamic duo find the dragon? Can they stay on task? Read on to see!
Ben and I are really pleased with how this turned out, so I hope everyone enjoys it. We’ll be updating with a new page every Tuesday and Friday. If you’ve never read a web-comic before, it’s a slow, agonizing way to read a story, but it’s going to get us started in the whole serialized publishing, so we’ll see how it goes. If you like it, please tell us, and of course share it with your friends — we’d love to have an audience someday.
“Year of the Dragon” is 21 pages, so it’s going to run through late October. In the meantime we’re still working away, so there will be more stories to come after this. Check back here for updates and lots of sketches and concept art. Cheers!
Ben sent me the draft of our first chapter for “Voyages” (still just a working title), and we’ve got a 21 page story to kick off this project. I’m really excited about it — I love the characters Ben has come up with and the tone he’s striking. Fantasy has a tendency to take itself (far) too seriously [Editor’s note: Chris’s opinions are his own and do not reflect the opinions of Voyager Comics, which are complex and subtle] [Not the editor’s note — Ben, glad to see you interjecting ideas into my posts], and I like how we’re going to be playing around with cliches and archetypes and having a lot of fun.
With his script in mind, I did a quick sketch of some monsters catching Tomas, the Franciscan monk.
The rest of the evening I spent inking page 18 of “The Year of the Dragon. Just have to get to page 20 so we can launch it, but all the details on this page meant I worked on it for 3 hours and finished 3 panels. Normally I can ink a whole page in that time, but hey, it’s looking great.
