I’m going to keep this short, but I thought I should write something to let everyone know what to expect from BOSC Comics for the next few weeks.

So, the page we posted yesterday was the final page of “Monkey See… Monkey Free?!” I’ve been working on the rough draft of the next chapter for a few weeks now, but Will and I still have some fine tuning to do. This time, we want to have a better idea of how the story unfolds before we start it. Last time, we actually cut out an entire segment of MSMF at the last second when we were already halfway through it (the second half of the flashback scene, after Dirk’s death). Everything still turned out fine, but we kind of want to avoid that this time.

I guess I said all that to explain why there won’t be any new BlackGuard strips for the next few weeks. That doesn’t mean we won’t be adding anything new. We’re going to be making updates to the BlackGuard character profiles, which will probably include redrawn profile pictures to match Will’s current style. I have a few blog ideas about BlackGuard that you hardcore fans might dig. I’m sure Will’s going to produce his share of artwork over the next few weeks. And who knows, maybe we’ll FINALLY produce some new strips from The Great Purging during this break.

“Monkey See… Monkey Free?!” Part 26

So, originally, we said we would have a new page from The Great Purging this week instead of a new Blackguard page. And yet here we are, promoting MSMF: Part 26 instead of a new TGP page.

Well, there are a few reasons for that, but the main one is that the characters of TGP needed a makeover. The Great Purging was our earliest idea for a comic strip, created around five years ago. When Will first designed the characters, he was just beginning to adopt a more cartoonish look. In the years since then, he’s come up with a unique style, and the old designs didn’t fit this style. So instead of a strip, the week was spent working on the updated look of the cast.

That brings us back to Blackguard. This week we give a very brief account of how the team ended their first mission and, at the same time, lay the seeds for a few plot points to come. So pay close attention to this page when you read it. Click on the preview below to see the whole thing.

MSMF Part 26

Peace.

This week we have two new pages of “Monkey See… Monkey Free?!”, with Part 22 and Part 23.

We found some new fonts recently, so the lettering on these two latest pages looks better than ever. It’s funny looking at these pages and comparing them to the ones we were posting less than a year ago.

We got a late start on this week’s post because we had trouble deciding on the layout of the page. Finally, Will came up with the two-page spread. The combination of having a late start and having tow pages to color caused us to have to push the post back to today. But better late than never. Check out this week’s installment of Blackguard here.

So Will and I went to Megacon over the weekend. With our job being a little short-staffed, we had to work extra hours Monday – Thursday in order to get the weekend off, which is why we didn’t post anything new last week.
But this week we have Part 19 of “Monkey See… Monkey Free?!” Below is a preview shot of the page.

We’ll post a blog later this week with some pics from Megacon.
