I'm in the setup stages at the moment, but eventually this is probably going to turn into an excuse for me to portray evil stuff on a regular basis. Hurrah!

New episodes will got online on Mondays and Fridays, so drop by regularly!

The style of the characters reminds me of The Order of The Stick. It's fun.

It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form." - Plato

I see your point there... I've been drawing these characters in their present form for around ten years, and they developed from stickmen angels and demons that I used to draw as a child, so I think I can claim quite fairly that they developed outside of the web's influence. It's really quite convenient how nicely they fit in with the vector-graphic style.

Why havent I seen this thread yet?!

Aw yay! New stuff. I've never been really into comics (or webcomics) but I'll most definitely read this. Seems as though you've been busy!

It only went online yesterday. I was designing the site most of the week, so I didn't tell anyone when the first episode went online.

Nope, but he certainly does like geese!

I've just put today's one online, and it features no geese.

The new episode is up now.

At the moment I'm setting things up for the regular pattern of the strip, which will involve more characters, mini-story arcs, and one-off silly strips. There's always the slow bit to get out of the way before you can get into the fun stuff, and I'm really looking forward to getting on to that.

Hmm... I didn't plan it this way, but today's (Sept 11th) post could appear in bad taste at first. I don't think it is, but I did ponder delaying it for a day. Any thoughts?

I didn't think of it when I read the comic, but I suppose you could see it that way. I wouldn't do anything unless anyone actually complains.

No one has said anything yet. I think it's pretty clear that I wasn't trying to make a comment about the terrorist attacks 11 years ago, but the coincidental link between the subjects was odd and could have been read the wrong way.

That's today's strip online now. I'm really pleased with the final panel on this one.

I've got to say that when I read Monday's strip my first thought was the 'Its only a model' dig at the end of the Camalot song in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. I think that reference in my head made it funnier for me, I didn't even think of the anniversary until I read the accompanying text. I'm not sure if that makes me a bad person or not? Perhaps unaware?... Actually take both of those back, I'm not, it's fine.

Blimey, started typing before 10am and there Mata goes and posts before me about Friday going up making this one look silly... dag-nab'it

I think I was just being a bit over-sensitive about the possibility of Monday's strip offending people. It's still a bit of an odd coincidence, I think.

Technically it is a model... a 3D rendered model smile.gif

There's definitely rising damp today...

What do you think of the style? I'm finding myself drawn to a slightly retro feel at the moment. We'll see where this develops, but I think I'm beginning to get my eye for comic work.

I kinda like the slightly off skewing inside the black and the colours do lean towards the retro which is cool.

I've found reading different online comics that there seems to be a divide between creators who consistantly use the same style and those who just go with the flow and time constraints.

So far I'm really enjoying the style. I quite like it when there are changes etc in style, it can keep a comic fresh and open a different avenue. I recon half the fun of reading onlines is that you can see different developments. Nifty!
