If this feels a bit like some re-cap, that’s because it is. I am doing some minor re-cap of character and story because not only is this an ongoing webcomic, but I’m also collecting it in separate books with somewhat standalone plots (although the entire thing is one big story). Okay, nipped that question in the bud.
Hello new readers from SMBC (“Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal” to those unfamiliar, a very funny comic)! And thanks Zach for the link. 🙂
Speaking of Zach, I am still doing M-W-F fill-in strips for Snowflakes, and really enjoying drawing their fun characters, so check that out.
I did hear back from my printer, Spacetrawler Book #1 is scheduled to be shipped from them February 2nd if all goes smoothly. So, expect that to go up for sale hopefully in early-to-mid February. Exxxxxcitement! 🙂
Also on the Spacetrawler frontier, CWCobalt left a comment last Wednesday on a strip he purchased. For those of you unaware, the original artwork for any strip can be bought for a MERE eighty bucks (info below each strip). But don’t listen to me, read his comment…
“Hey Chris, I’m the guy who bought this wonderful piece of original art. One of your best strips, I think, due to the dynamic composition and dramatic angles. Scans don’t do your original work justice — the sepia tones, brushwork and even the lettering are a joy to see in detail. It will look wonderful (and inspiring) nicely framed on the wall in my studio. And a VERY fair price for such a great piece. I am a happy camper. Looking forward to your book! Onward to Book 2!”
