Subject:Cloudhopper #226
Time:10:28 am
So, (sort of) funny story.

I went to South Texas Comic Con, which is a particularly good show. It's profitable and fun, because people down there really care. Comics aren't a hipster affectation like they are in Austin, they're a THING and people CARE.

But it's a long way away. South Texas is as south as it gets, it's literally the border of Mexico. As in, you can see Mexico from the convention center. You have to drive through some weird places to get there, too.

So I arrive an hour late, and my first customer appears before I even get my table, and it's this woman from last year who bought Cloudhopper 1 & 2 and I promised her #3 would be done by this year and here she is and she's excited to buy book three.

Which I of course have not completed.

So let's get right to that! Here's page 226. Sorry for the delay, Cynthia.

Subject:Monomania panel 8
Time:08:34 am

In college I had one teacher who absolutely believed that Roman Polanski was the greatest director of all time. He believed this so strongly that he made us watch Polanski’s student films. One of them was about two guys who carry a dresser around Poland. The dresser had a mirror on it. The teacher talked about that mirror for months.

I’ve always been oddly grateful to that guy, because, even though he was completely wrong (Paul Verhoeven is the greatest director of all time) but he did make me pay attention to Roman Polanski movies, and they are a kind of good that no other movie is.

Subject:DIE SKY DIE and also Monomania panel 06
Time:02:08 pm

As a person with a rather dark sense of humor, one of the funniest things I know about is Operation Starfish Prime. This really happened.

Long story short, we (as a species) discovered the Van Allen Belts, then immediately nuked them “for science.” But then we forgot to get any rockets to send up to study the explosion. So we didn’t really learn much.

What’s that, you say? We learned to not nuke the sky? Well, one thing is that we already knew that. And the other thing is that I don’t think we learned even that.

Like I said, this really happened.

In unrelated news, there are few things in the world that bother me as much as Dropbox. Maybe LinkedIn.

Subject:Actually, that was the end of book six of Fief.
Time:01:07 pm

Circumstances vis-a-vis comics have changed substantially, and I am now entirely engaged upon a new comic that I’m doing with two collaborators, Mike Comeaux and Joey Graham, and we’re working on this new thing called Monomania.

What that means though is that this chapter of Fief, which only had ten frames left to run anyway, has been unceremoniously pushed to the side for a bit. Which is okay, because I think by ending the story right here it’s a little more interesting. It’s an accidental cliffhanger, but I’ll take it. If you’re really in some way offended by that, I’ll tell you what happens next; Leda’s mother slaps her for running away. Because Leda’s mother suffered a TBI and cannot control her anger. The end, start of the next chapter.

Or, as it turns out, that’s the start of the next chapter and then all the stuff about Robocop and the hypnotic video games happens.

But not for a bit! Because I’m going to let Monomania pre-empt this channel for a while. I’m going to start with a few days of preliminary sketches and then probably launch right into panels. I have some ideas for those panels.

Anyway, that starts this Thursday! So you can still come here twice a week and find interesting things to see, and Fief will return after this short break. I’m really hoping to have the first book of Monomania done by Christmas.

Subject:Harper’s Ferry Book 05: Possession is Some Part of the Law
Time:01:43 pm

Here’s the final installment of Harper’s Ferry 1859! After the momentous events of this issue, a certain somebody continues on to Texas and gets involved in some of the troubles down there. So there may be a next chapter someday, and if there is it’s called Texas 1860. I’m researching it as we speak. If this last story is any indication, it’ll probably be done in 2017 sometime. And I probably won’t have this one produced yet. But one does one’s best, and at least the script is good.
