Good morning fellow readers! I just wanted to take a moment to go over some goals for printed books (physical and digital) that I have for 2020. So, let's start straight away with my baby, Fred Peterson: The Mighty Warlord- TC Edition!
Most of you know the drill: I lost the original artwork and backup files through different natural disasters and hardware malfunctions back when I lived in PR, making it impossible to print out a quality looking comic of the webcomic.
So, I decided to redraw the whole thing and since the few published copies were when I was a part of a studio named Studio 22 (aka Astral 22 as well), I decided to rebrand the printed copies the Truthful Comics Edition.
My goal for TMW in terms of printing book one is to have at least two comics printed late 2021, the book 1 prologue and the book 1 webisodes. I'm extremely excited about this, because not only am I revisiting stories that are near and dear to me, I am giving it a facelift as well, since my artwork has evolved so much since the webcomic started in 2006.
Of course, that means I will tweak a thing here and there to help the story flow better, too, since I have grown as a writer since the original webcomic started. It's not an entire remake, but for example, most chapter were 32 pages long, and to help with pacing issues and to help with the price point of the comic, I will be pairing that down to 22 pages, so I will have to write around where to end and where to start an issue, especially on the chapters that were 40+ pages. I assure you this will be done to ensure that I am putting the best possible product out there for you all!
The two images shown in this blog are the covers to the prologue and webisodes respectively, which I have posted before (along with a preview of some pages). Throughout the year I will be posting teaser images of the progress.
One thing I still am thinking about is doing a crowdfund on Indie Gogo or something, since the majority of readers would prefer a trade of book 1. I'll decide what to do down the line and keep you all posted, just know that I am having a blast doing this, and I hope that fun shows when the time comes to finally see this in print again! Thank you all for reading, catch you next blog, until then stay safe!
