i've been planning this for years but as we all know, life can be difficult sometimes.  anyway, here is a quick mock up "cover" image for the comic that i've been wanting to do for years.  i have a small story in the planning and have already done some of the layouts but i could use a knowledgeable co-writer or two to help with future stories.  in the meantime i will post pages as they are done.

Hey crustbucket.  Very nice first page you have.  Hopefully you can continue to make them.  We'd love to read them.

Have you seen Gabbage's comic?  It's a couple years old, but he still posts on the boards and might e interested in working with you...who knows?

I look forward to seeing more of these.

Oh don't drag me into anything you want to do long term Laugh

I have a nasty habit of petering out on projects. Problem was that the comic took upwards of 9 hours per page. I have tried other comics sense but they petered out too. This one was my favorite

Hahahaha. It is veru interesting, crustbucket.

Comics-wise Gredavin, also known as Kurtis Wiebe https://www.facebook.com/kurtisjwiebe?ref=hl is a comics writer now, when he was active around here that was a far off dream of his, and I am glad he fullfilled it.

Also, Kane is quite the writer and has a lot of stories you can find on the forums, and maybe, who kows, he might want to give some of them or some new ones a graphical look.

yeah, i saw gabboges comic years ago.  i liked it a lot and wish he could continue with it.  but i understand about the 9 hours per page thing.  that's what has been preventing me from doing one until now.  i've figured out a way to minimize the time spent per page but as you can see it leaves a bit of an "unfinished" look.  i've decided that it was either that or not do one at all because i definitely can't devote nearly that amount of time.  also, i think it lends to the grim and gritty nature of the setting anyway.  i've also seen some of kanes stuff but reading the white text on a black background terrorizes my eyes after a few minutes.

anyway, here's page one.

Very impressive. I agree that black and white sketching fits the tone of the setting better than more polished colour illustrations would. Do you already have a full story in mind for your first issue? Looking forward to seeing more. The first panels are intriguing, to say the least.

thanks guys.  yeah, i have a story arc in mind but i haven't plotted out that many pages yet so i'm not sure how many pages it'll be.  i do plan to show the grim and gritty nature of the setting to the max, though.
