I am happy to announce that I have signed with Screaming Eye Press and a revised edition of Salient Caligation will be released in the coming months. Stay tuned! I will keep up The Devil Parts 1 & 2, but when I get all of the pages- it’ll be compiled and released by Screaming Eye Press!
Things have been rather hectic. The script for this chapter is wrapping up as we are starting to get to the end of this fairly long chapter! In the future, I will write more about James, Lisa, and Bolin.
Bloodlines and lineage are always important when talking about magic. I find it funny that while I started this comic back in 2003, I had never actually played in an urban TTRPG as a mage.
It’s 2020 and I am playing a former Catholic nun novitiate Awakened and initiated into the Hindu/Buddhist traditions of Tantra as a Chakravanti in the Hypersigil play-test of a home-brewed Mage the Ascension 5th edition game.
I don’t normally play naiive or high social stated characters so it’s been interesting to see Angela as she started when I wrote her and how she is now. Rapid character development through traumatic events. I look forward to the next iteration of the playtest!
I’m into week 4 of my new graduate program so I am actually taking a short break from a paper due tonight to quickly blog.
This page ends Ch. 3 Part 2, which is available on DrivethruComics! When I get all of Ch. 3 Part 3 together, I will pre-release it as a whole book through Amazon, DriveThru and Barnes and Noble through Ingram Spark to print. So if have to have it complete and in your hands, it’ll come out that way before I release it to the web. So please stay tuned!
It looks like with the scheduling and my budget, I won’t have all of the pages for Chapter 3 for print until about Feb 2021 which means it won’t finish hitting the web until probably summer 2021.
I’ll probably start looking to get the script for Ch 4: Death together once I complete the last few pages of The Devil, which will bring our storyline back to the present, following the events of Ch 1: The Lovers (which will be redone at some point).
I have always had issues with car accidents. Jie has to decide if she can live with the choice she had to make. She doesn’t regret saving her granddaughter’s life but she has to live with the fact she couldn’t save Lisa or James.
Shadow monsters, voices taking backwards, the lines of reality and dreams blending. None of which are good when in a moving vehicle.
Ah yes. Sort of settled at the new place and quarantining so joy. Doing some writing and trying to get ready for school to start up.
I have a couple more pages to go before I compile and release the Devil Part 2 to DriveThru Comics!
The comic will post for free at the normal 2 pages per month until page 25 goes live on September 16 but for those that want to read it in one go, I will have the compiled PDF available for Patrons by the end of May, since we have worked ahead to get the pages made.
I have 8 pages left of the 49 pages for the Devil. At the moment, page 24 was just completed but will not go live until September.
The Site Update schedule is: May 13, May 27, June 10, June 24, July 8, July 22, August 5, August 19, Sept 2, Sept 16th. All of these pages are scheduled to post as of today, so there won’t be an interruption to the updates.
Patrons get these pages 1 week early and compiled at the end of the month with some bonus material.
Next page goes up on May 13th. Patreons will get the update on May 6th.
It’s scary out there in the world. The uncertainty of the future and the increasing isolation as more states go into lock down makes this a strange time to live. I have to keep working, so I have been limiting my exposure to keep my family safe.
Despite this, I am still charging forward with this project. The work helps my artist, Nicoy, as her country is in lock down. I’m lucky that I can continue working. It’s just grim out there.
It’s dark but there is still so much light to be found. Stay safe out there.
