Verdict by andie5 Verdict by andie5
hello again everyone! here's a chapter cover from The Fifth Columnist volume 2 -- i've been a deliberate 'hermit' in the offline world in order to get the manga project done... hopefully it can be published within the next few months or so *fingers crossed!*

the characters are helix and bishop (with shorter hair), inked manually and coloured in monochrome on photoshop.

thanks for viewing as always :D

By the way, do you have english versions too? Or else I must ask my Indonesian friend (she`s born here but I believe she speaks Indonesian with a few relatives) to read it to me. :D

Oh now I see...you were gone to work on your manga??? Hows that going??? Have you finished 1 Volume yet??? Im curious :P...BTW did being offline help you get better and concentrate on your manga more??? Im guessing it would.

Lol! Well, actually its the other way around (i'll let you in on a secret).
I had a severe heartbreak at the time and 'disappeared' for some time. I use manga-making as a consolation around it.

So come to think of it, the project would probably not have kicked off if it weren't for this b*st*rd (who happened to follow me here into da :XD:), and now that its done I'm also ready to move on by returning to dam

Its kinda complicated :P

Being from Québec, I think I can pick and chose from all versions of the english language, american or british... ;-)

hmmm you know... i was watching E channel the other day (i know, lame!) and there was a true hollywood story on celine dion (ohmy, even lamer! :XD:) and it seemed that her first language is french instead of english?

is that the case with many other people in quebec? (sorry, my keyboard doesn't support the french e letter :D) i find the fact rather interesting (and fascinating at the same time :))

Actually, french is the first language of 80% of the population. Canada was first colonized by France but the colony was later conquered by the British.

hmmm... and yet the "canadian english" accent has no french undertone at all... i find canadian accent very sexy hahaha

Well 80% of Quebec speaks french, with a good portion being at least functionally bilingual. The rest of Canada speaks english with just about no knowledge of french. It's a little messy, politically... ;-)

There are francophones in all of the rest Canada, but in small minorities.

merci cloe! im also happy that they'll let me publish the manga, but theyre only printing 3,000 copies each! that's a bit too little i think :|

hmm... im not really sure how many can already be considered 'reasonable'... but seeing the size of the country and the number of bookstores we have here, there should be at least 5,000 copies for a first print :ohnoes:

but i'm not complaining (anymore!) since it's better to wait and see first what the market really wants :XD: i dont want the comic to end up in the 50-cent bucket during massive bookstore sales after all :D :dead:

oh I see! Well now that you say it, this a bit less than what it's supposed to be but like you say, I wouldn't want my work to be sold for nothing just because it's not working.
Anyway, fingers crossed, Im sure it will!!!!

Oh and are you going to sell a few copies online?

Nothing terribly exciting. ^^; I've stopped running my little design business and have moved into hospitality. (Was tired of clients owing me money and taking months to pay me for work...) Basically it's retail though, but in the alcohol industry.

But I really like what I do now, and it pays better than design too, go figure! The hours are long and I do mainly night shifts. So it's got its good and bad points.

What are you up to these days?
Reply
:iconandie5:
andie5 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2009
seems that night shifts can be very tiring! but so long as you can do tons of other stuff while working, it'd be fun! :XD:

unfortunately for me, im still working in the media. not too exciting but i'll cope! :D and i've finally finished my the fifth columnist comic project, so that's another load off the mind :)

How awesome is the feeling when you finally finish a project? I completed and published my novel Red Generation late last year and it was such an amazing moment. Are you getting it printed/published?
