    Brief Hiatus & Conventions

    Hey Gang,

    I was really hoping this issue could update weekly with at least a new page and hit every update until it's conclusion, but that didn't happen and isn't likely to course-correct this week.

    I won't bore you with the details, but I've hit a rough patch these last few weeks and the comics aren't getting done. To try and rectify this we're going to take a little break and try and get back on track. What that means is that we'll resume chapter 6 with new comics on September 9th.

    Cincy Comic Con!

    In other news we'll be at the Cincy Comic Con on Sept 12-13 in the artist alley. Come check us out and get a Volume 1 Trade and some stickers and stuff!

    Chapter 5 is finished!

    Chapter 5 is complete! Well, minus the various things I need to go back and clean up a little now that I've got some time. So there will be some of that. This one clocked in at 28 pages over the course of about 5 months. That might be a record!

    I feel like this one went the smoothest of them all so far, and hopefully that trend will continue. I started doing quick layouts with the Intuos and leaving copious notes for myself in the margins. I think the last 10 or so pages really benefited from this.

    Chapter 6:

    We're going to break for a month or so and plot out the next issue. I've been thinking about this one for awhile so I think all the major beats are there, I just need to write out the dialog and design the locations.

    Lots of new minor characters to design... and crowd scenes. Yuck.

    We're back and comments!

    The comics are back! We'll be posting 2 pages until the completion of Chapter 5, there should be 5 pages or so left to go. Tryig to make it hit 28, but we'll see.

    Other News:

    Issue 3 & 4 has hit Comixology Submit you can find them below:

    Chapter 3: The Weight of the Matter pt 1

    Chapter 4: The Weight of the Matter pt 2

    This will make all the completed chapters available, and Chapter 5 should follow along shortly.

    Also, I've set up Disqus on the site to handle comments. Seemed like a better idea then trying to do it all myself with user accounts and sign-in-with-facebook bullshit. It probably won't get used to much in the beginning, but who knows, might be fun. This post is mostly an excuse to try it out. I'll see about attaching them to the comic chapters as well, that might be a little more useful.

    Holiday Break

    As much as I'd like to keep things rolling along, I think we're going to take a break for the last couple weeks of December to catch up on some stuff, plan the remaining pages out a little more and generally make sure it's as good as it can be.

    So to that end, The Trouble and Dangerous will return the first week of January 2015. Looks like that'll be the 7th. Work will continue to happen behind the scenes, and hopefully we can wrap this thing up by February. We'll be back with 2 pages (at least) a week until it's complete.

    Oh, and we'll try and post some progress notes or art where appropriate.

    Chapter 5 Begins!

    Hey everyone, we're back from our little summer hiatus with the first several pages from Chapter 5: "Franchise Opportunities Available." We've been releasing 2 pages every Wednesday for the last couple weeks and plan to continue that update schedule for as long as possible. Hopefully this will allow us to produce 3 or so chapters a year. Here's a little preview of the cover for Chapter 5:

    Chapter 4 is complete!

    With Chapter 4 initially completed here's what's happening in the immediate future:

    Most noticeably we'll be taking a little bit of a break to get the next chapter scripted and plotted out. I'd like to actually have a complete script for a change. I don't know exactly when that'll start up, but probably a couple months at least. It's tough in the summer with so much going on.

    The website will be getting revamped a little, the actual comic viewing mechanism is pretty solid so it's not changing really. But we'll be redesigning a little, streamlining the blog and adding some new features like character pages. Hard to say the exact extent.

    Chapter 4 has really felt like it's been going on forever (hopefully it was enjoyable) and while its been completed in once sense, it's not quite finished. There are a few inconsistencies that I need to address and a few other things that I feel like could be improved upon. I'd like to get some of this stuff corrected so I can print up Issue 4 comics for Indy Pop Con at the end of next month.

    Speaking of printed comics, they will be available soon for online purchase (printed & digital). Also, since the idea is to do 12 chapters in Vol 1, I'm very likely going to be printing a 125ish page trade paperback of the first 4 issues. Details to come on that one.

    Lastely, I think we've built up enough content to explore publishing this thing to Comixology, so that'll be in the works as soon as chapter 4 is finalized. Likely at the $0.99 price point.

    The Comic is Back!

    Just a quick note to let everyone know that as of last Wednesday the comic is back on it's weekly update schedule until the conclusion on chapter 4! These long hiatuses usually result in a fury of activity right off the bat so I'm trying to make the most of this energy.

    There are lots of cool things in the works including the final cover art for chapter 4 and a couple new characters that should have a significant impact on the comic and it's characters! Though, perhaps not right away.

    Anyway, enjoy!

    Troubling News

    Hey everyone, we're gearing up to get going on Chapter 4/Part 2 of The Weight of the Matter Storyline. I don't have a solid start date, but we're most likely looking at early March. This will be the hopefully thrilling conclusion of the current story line.

    We're also working on getting Issue 3 in final printing form so we can have those books for the Lexington Comic Convention on the 16th & 17th of March. These books will also be available for purchase online pretty soon, we'll be sure to make a proper announcement about that when the time comes.

    Speaking of which, we'll be at the Lexington Comic Convention on the 16th & 17th! As always we're sharing a table with R Squared Comics. If all goes to plan we'll have the first 3 books and some posters available, probably stickers too! Stop by and say hello if you're planning to attend! Billy Dee will be there!

    Issue 1 Has Arrived

    A very small run (25 copies) of issue 1 arrived yesterday and they look really good. They will be available for sale at the Derby City Comic Con and later this summer at Gencon in Indianapolis. There aren't any current plans to make it generally available online. I'm sure that will eventually change, probably once there are a couple more books printed.

    Here's a few photos.
