Clare, I’m pretty sure you shouldn’t be doing that; I don’t think stainless steel has been invented yet.

And now here’s something extremely cool. For some time now, Tomoyo Ichijouji has been producing a video adaptation of the comic,  using the original  artwork with voice actors, sound effects, and music. (If you’ve seen the Watchmen “motion comics”, it’s something like that, except with a full voice cast, and also I am not Dave Gibbons.) Well, the first chapter is complete! I’m going to try to embed the video below. In case that doesn’t work, watch it on youtube here and leave comments to tell Tomoyo and co. what an awesome job they did. I’m told that Chapter 2 will be coming very soon!

Happy New Year! Resolutions for this comic include finishing chapter 5. That may sound like a very modest goal, but it’s still more than one page a week, which will require me to speed up my current rate of production. :P I also hope to finish the script/thumbnails for chapter 6 and the next interlude, and to post in my art tumblr at least once a week, even if it’s only sketches and junk.

I’m going to try doing a one-page update next week.

A few months ago, when the site got infected by some spambot script and I was desperately scrambling to scrub it clean, I ended up deleting the entire forum. Prior to that, the forum had long been overrun by spambot posters. I guess now what I’m wondering is if anyone would be interested in a new forum? I have very fond memories of the community that formed on old No Rest forums; but I’m not sure if webcomic forums is something that people still do (wow I sound old). Blog comments seem like less fuss. But maybe people would prefer something more conducive to discussions? I don’t know.

Chapter 5 pages 8-9
It seems I've neglected to post updates here on livejournal. If there's anyone still following me here who isn't on the email list, following me on twitter, or checking the site, I actually started chapter 5 of the comic a few months ago, and have just posted pages 8-9. Hmm... maybe I should figure a way to get blog posts to be mirrored automatically on lj.

Third Interlude, pages 13, 14, and 15

The last three pages of this Interlude. I've actually been sitting on these for a few months now. -__- I kind of wanted to hold them for a bit until I could redesign the site, and could promise that Chapter 5 was soon to follow... But people have been sending me emails and messages asking about the comic, and a few seemed to be worried that I was, well, at the bottom of a ditch somewhere. Don't worry! It's only a metaphorical ditch, and nothing I can't climb out of. ^_^;; Seriously though, I have done some work on Chapter 5, but not as much as I'd like. So we'll have to see. The forum, it seems, has been attacked by spambots and I've locked it down for the moment.

If you're still reading this -- thanks.

Third Interlude, pages 11 and 12 | one new fanart


Those of you not in the Philippines may have heard on the news that the country was hit by a pretty crazy typhoon last Saturday. We're used to typhoons over here, but this one turned out much worse than anyone was expecting. My family and I were lucky and weathered it just fine. But many people right in our city lost most of their belongings, their homes, or even their lives; and other cities and regions were hit much worse. I know things are bad all over, and several other countries were hit with terrible natural disasters recently; but if you're sleeping someplace dry and safe tonight, please spare a moment to think of those who can't. If you want to find out more or are interested in helping out, there are some photos, videos and links collected here and here.

Okay, that's all. We now return you to your irregularly scheduled cheesy fairy tale comic. There are three more pages in this Interlude, and Chapter 5 is going to be another monster-sized one like Chapter 3.

Third Interlude, page 10


I was experimenting a bit on this page with a different type of pen, so let me know if you notice any difference. Or not.

The middle bubble in the last panel originally read, "I'd tell you 'Jack, son of so-and-so'"; but it occurred to me that, if readers could accept the idea of a guy called "the Boy", they might actually believe that his father was literally named "so-and-so". Which would admittedly be kind of funny, but not quite what I had in mind.

Third Interlude, pages 8 and 9 | 89 new icons | 1 new fanart


What, you thought only the prince was cool enough to get flashback scenes?

When the time comes I can never think of anything to say here. Um, as you might know I've been trying to redesign this site. I had grand ambitions of learning css and having a sleek layout and super-cool menus and things. Yeah, that's not working out so well; I'll probably end up just doing it in regular caveman html after all. I keep thinking there must be some better way of organizing the fanworks though.

That's all I guess. Thanks for reading. Next page sometime next week I hope.

Third Interlude, pages 6 and 7 | 3 new fanart


Now that I look at it (as if I haven't looked at it before now), page 6 seems to be the sort of played-for-laughs slapstick that's actually quite horrifying and unfunnny. Like all those "funniest home videos" that show people falling and hitting their heads or getting mauled by bears.

I was supposed to put up a big batch of new livejournal icons by tomoyoichijouji, but it will have to wait for next time. In the meantime, please check out all the new fanart. ^^
