So you may have heard that Will had to have a wisdom tooth removed last week. That put us behind a little, which is why we didn’t post a new page last week and probably won’t have one this week either.

On a good note though, we started a monthly comic strip for the Savannah/Hilton Head radio station Rock 106.1. We’re still not sure whether or not we’re going to post these strips on our main page too, but we’ll at least make an announcement every time we do a new one. Here’s the Walking Dead inspired first strip.

Rock 106.1 Strip: Full Governor

In other news, you may start seeing some changes in the way we communicate with our audience in the near future. I think we may begin to put more focus on this blog as the main news feed. You probably noticed the message that popped up in the center of the page or the little “Join the community” banner in the lower right of the screen. Feel free to sign in using your Facebook or Google+ profile.

The last bit of news I have is about the design of our main page. For a long time, we used the floating page that moved in response to the mouse pointer. This was for two reasons: 1) To account for double page spreads that normally wouldn’t fit into the window. 2) To allow our readers to browse through pages without having to constantly scroll down. We recently got rid of that, so now the page just stays n place. Unless we hear any objections from people who liked it the old way, we’ll stick to this basic layout.

See ya next week.

“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.
