As I am in the process of setting up my new studio to work out of, I figured I'd give you all a bit of an update on things. As you may recall, my pal and Super G.A.L.S. writer, Dale, died last year. (Actually, we're just about two weeks shy of that unfortunate anniversary.) While he gave me his blessing to do what I will with the characters and series and I felt I thought of a good way to continue on without him, it just hasn't been the same. I got the cover and a page or two done but I just didn't like doing it without him. It just didn't "feel" right. So, its with a heavy heart that I'm going to officially announce that I'm placing the Super G.A.L.S. on indefinite hiatus.
Now, before anyone assembles into a crowd and starts passing out the pitchforks and torches, I'm not saying the Super G.A.L.S. will never come back. I love the characters too much to totally abandon them. I'm just going to let them rest for a bit so I can stop stressing myself over trying to continue work on them by myself. Eventually I can see myself wanting to play in that sandbox again. So all hope is not lost! I guess I just need my own time to deal with things in my own way, if that makes sense.
Since I try to be a positive fellow as much as I can, I want to make sure to give you some good news now that the bad news is out of the way.
I've begun work on a brand new series! Now, this is in its earliest stages; it doesn't even have a name yet, but, with the help of a friend of mine, who graciously agreed to model for me in costume-including damsel-in-distress situations-the series protagonist is created. I've also already created the world in which she'll inhabit, as it won't be set here on Earth. I don't want to say much just yet for obvious reasons (anything can change between now and when its ready for reading), but my friend who "stood in" for the creation of our protagonist thinks it sounds like a rather swell world I constructed, so that's a start.
I'm currently working on various other characters and the looks of some locales, as well as doing some promo artwork. I already have the world map made, so I have to fill it!
When it's all ready, it'll be released as an e-comic by Black Feather Graphics. Just a warning though, it won't be ready for a bit, probably not until later in the summer. Until then, if there is interest, I can post some teasers to whet the appetite...
