Well I cannot thank you all enough for the kind words and endless amounts of patience. It is true that life has been busy, but this has been one of those things that, when you let it slide a little, it slides a LOT. Starting this comic back up has been very difficult, but I’m glad I’m getting back to it. Every time I would see one of my old comics sitting around I’d internally flinch, remembering that I had dropped my artistic responsibility in the mud.
But all that aside, I’m back! The comic will update on Monday as before, but with a 12:oopm deadline as opposed to the old midnight Sunday deadline. Since I ALWAYS work Sundays, this should help me from missing updates. More importantly this should help keep the quality of the art up as well. Nothing irked me more than scrambling through the minor details to get it done at 11:30 at night, and making a sloppy comic post.
Now, for the changes. There will be a few big changes to B.O.W.L. going forward. First and most noticeable, It will primarily be a Three-Panel strip. I’m sorry, but the full pages just take so long that I sometimes hate them when I’m done. There will be occasion full pages or art pages, but mostly three-panel strips.
Second, the comic is going to be a little more broad in topic. It will still be 90% S.I.N League related, so no worries folks! But the occasional odd bit of humor or art will likely make its way in. This is due to the fact that artists sometimes need to do something fun that has little to do with what do usually do. I promise to keep it awesome no matter what it is.
Third, and this one is still tentative at this point. Justin isn’t story-boarding at this time. He has a LOT going on, and some exciting new hobbies that I want him to thoroughly enjoy. But that leaves little time for stressing over the comic. So for at least the short-term I will be writing, illustrating and ( god help me) moderating the site. On that last note, bare with me, I have NO idea how comic press works, so Justin will be teaching me as I go. there may be functional hiccups along the way. Please let me know if anything isn’t working properly!
Wow, that’s a mouthful! I hope this is all agreeable with everyone, let me know your thoughts about anything going forward, or any ideas that you think might make this site better. I cannot promise to never miss an update, but I will try my best to at least post something every week, even if it’s a little bit late now and again.
Thank you, everyone for your support. And thank you Justin, for all of your encouragement!
This is a little quick comic to get us started back up, I know it isn’t Monday, but you have all been super patient, I though you deserved a little something. Nothing super exciting, just my comic persona tell me to get the lead out.
