No, not Mixtape but that's still getting new pages. No, it is indeed a new series. See, while I have these scripts I'm fine tuning and shopping around I felt that it would be a good thing to put something out as a webcomic in the meantime. Especially if it can help me and my family out. I'll be uploading it to tapastic and I'll be sure to edit this journal and put a link here when it's up. Which will be soon, as the plan is to have it debut this month. Update : The series has debuted. Go to tapastic sign up/in and subscribe please. tapastic.com/series/NewCourage
It's a low fantasy series that's called New Courage. (Props to my dad for the name) The story started life as an idea I had for a fighting game and has some homages to the 80s and early 90s. The story takes place on a planet named Toberetz and there are two kinds of people living there. Both are humanoid and nearly the same but have different abilities. These abilities aren't anything crazy but are noticeable. One group of people can control their extremities durability allowing them to strike with lots of power and the other group can call on essentially hormones and can increase their overall strength and speed.
I want to point out some things as well that the story isn't about races though, more about classes. The rich and poor both share equal amounts of both types of people. The only thing that's about race is a story thread about what would happen when they have a mixed child and most don't mix because they're afraid of what the child would come out like. Some think the child could have abilities that exceed both parents or that the child would be unstable and just basically, self destruct.
Now I know that of course not everyone is going to like the story but I feel that I should stop being afraid and go ahead and promote it. Honestly I'm a bit scared. Seeing people react to this little story I'm crafting. Even though it's just a webcomic and not one of the comics I'm working to get published. It's a bit funny to be afraid of having people read your stories and yet at the same time you're trying to get your work out there in stores and eventually on TVs. I hope if you do read it you'll learn to not take it seriously, I won't. You'll see plenty of jokes throughout it... and a twist or two. Hope you enjoy it, even though I'll be writing AND drawing this. Even though I love to draw when it comes to comics I much prefer to just write them and have a dedicated artist drawing it instead of having me split the duties among myself.
Also yes, I really am drinking a Diet Coke can as I'm writing this.
