Good day, everyone! Hope the week has been treating you well on this first full week of 2021. Today, I want to write about a webcomic that was actually starting to gain a lot of steam but that has suffered the most from setbacks: DTF6.
Short for Delta Task Force 6, it is described as a sci-fi psychological thriller. Warlord is my love letter to super heroes and inspired by characters like The Ray (1990s version, DC Comics), Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner 1990s version as well) and The Flash (Wally West 1990s version), with some Spider-Man and Robin (Tim Drake) mixed in as well.
DTF6, consisting of characters I created WAY before Warlord, is my love letter to team books and anime. As the story and concept progressed, influences for this story has come from Uncanny X-Men (Scott Lobdell and Joe Madureira run), Sovereign Seven (the Chris Claremont comic from DC), G-Force (Battle of the Planets in Japanese), Neon Genesis Evangelion, Argento Soma, and Heroic Age, to name the most influential works.
It took years to finally finish chapter 1 two years ago, and again had to go into hiatus after getting ready to continue in 2018. Until this year.
My goal fo 2021 with DTF6 is to finally continue this story. I can't wait to revisit this particular world and expand on it. My plan is to release 2 chapters this year, meaning that contrary to Warlord and Clown, it will be updating once a week.
That's the only realistic schedule I can have for DTF6 for the time being until I finish other projects, once other projects come to an end, the goal is to eventually update twice, and then 3 times a week as well.
This story is nowhere near as long as Warlord, but it definitely has a beginning, middle, and ending all planned out, so I know how this series will end.
I also want to do a once a week schedule as a compromise to myself, to be able to update regularly without sacrificing quality too much. This is definitely a comic I'm extremely passionate about and can't wait to share with all of you! Again, thank you all for reading, stay safe and catch you next blog!
