Stuff is going on...
I hope the local shops did well. I'm kind of trapped by work right now and had to stay in.
Not sure if it has anything to do with it, people looking at more comics today maybe - but a good turn from a friend was the main thing. About 1200 new readers from reddit clicked on Dream Life and did a fair bit of page turning, thanks to Keiren 'MrsComics' Smith who first listed it! I suspect it might be that Mrs Comics. ;) Merci Keiren.
New page went up today by the way [as seen here].
And a couple of days ago I added the first track in the 'sound track' of the comic, go to the cover, open the youtube link in a new page, hit play and give about 4 bars per page.
I also just wrapped up Sequential Pulp, sent it off to the printers - god speed! - 30 pages of awesome in the end, already spotted a few typos including the one the bottom of the cover. oh well. Hundreds of collective man hours in it, think we did good. Thanks to everyone who submitted both that got in, even just under the wire, and those that did not. There was a surplus of potential content which is pretty amazing news in of itself. And to our sponsors. We had a surplus there too. feels like people are feeling bullish about comics and TCAF, bodes well. :) It's super tight on Dream Life, I'm optimistic but it's a race to the line.
Something kind of interesting going on at Zuda. I just submitted something to them with Mark Sable, he sent me the link last night - this is big news for us. I kind of think it's going to be good news. In general for creators.
The way i see it, this probably means you'll be able to put more time into the work itself and a little less into anxiety expended in a pubic popularity contest. It sounds like maybe they will be moving towards an editorial board model or something? Which i have a lot of experience with. Used to those terms in general.
Well, i have a crap tone of inking to do this weekend so out and over!
