I'm planning another Kaza and Gwenna Christmas special this year. Anyone looking for an invitation?
Been reading China Melvile's "Dial H" series and looking up info on the older version of the Dial H for Hero series. Now I'm getting ideas about doing an all public domain hero version of the idea. 
Up the River 011
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Up the River  Page 11


I added the beam of light between Van Horn and Gwenna's eyes to make her hypnotized state a bit more obvious.
No real spoiler, but I'm working on a zombie swarming scene in the current story, and it's hell to draw.
5 pages completed.
3 more pages penciled.
Working on my 24 Hour Comics Day project. Be posting pages later.
24 Hour Comics Day has krept up on me. I'm thinking of participating again, though this year I'll stick with doing my comic on paper.

As to the big question of what to draw, I'm still thinking on it.

When I started coming up with this comic, I knew it would be scheduled through October, so a horror story seemed appropriate. Van Horn in fact is derived from an old ACG comics horror story from Out of the Night #5.  
Just joining on the Bowsette bandwagon.

In case you haven't followed gaming news, the latest installment of Super Mario Brothers has a confusing new character power up. When Toadette, a female version of Toad (who has become meme worthy in his own right), gets the Super Crown she turns into Peachette who looks the same as Princess Peach. This lead to a lot of weird discussion about the nature of Princess Peach and her relation to the Mushroom people in general, and then ayyk92 explored what other uses the Super Crown might have, and thus Sexy Genderbent Bowser is born!

Godiva Fight
Doing something with my Mighty Godiva character idea. She's fighting her arch enemy Daria Dane, who has created a mega steroid that's turned her into a super muscled powerhouse and she thinks she can finally overpower Godiva.
Okay, I have rough sketches for pages 12-15 done.
I have page 11 of "Up the River" done, and I've been sketching out page 12 this afternoon. I am thinking I should go ahead and sketch out a few more pages to try and stay ahead better.

Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Up the River Page 08


And the story takes a bit of a turn.
Isabel Mary Wells
A character idea I did for the Comic Fury annual 30 days of characters challenge. H.G. Wells has been turned into a time traveler a number of times, so why not his wife?

Isabel Mary Wells is the cousin, and later the wife, of famed writer, inventor, and time traveler H.G. Wells. What most people don't realize is that she is an important contributor to her husband's invention of the time machine.It's her brilliant understanding of physics that made the invention possible.

While she took her husband's rise to fame and her disappearing to the sidelines with an appropriately British stiff upper lip. She found it completely intolerable that he was carrying on affairs with women in other time periods. When the opportunity presented itself, she left him, taking the time machine and wandering through histroy.
Page 11 of "Up the River" is done and queued up. There is a bit of plot development in the next few pages.
Remember my kludged up plumbing project?
I thought the whole run of pipe was some weird size, thus my wacky (but ultimately ineffective) attempt at joinery. It turns out I went through all that trouble for nothing. That one piece I was comparing off of was some kind of defect or has swollen over time. When I checked some of the pipe further down the line it was standard 1/2 inch pipe, and all it took was a couple Sharkbite connectors and some new copper pipe and everything is dandy again.

I've got the first page posted here Wednesday and it will be showing up on Comic Fury early tomorrow. I have the first eight pages completed and queued up on Comic Fury. I think I'll keep posting the new pages here on the Wednesday before. As I promised, this story is a return to more straightforward jungle adventures, though I do think I'm providing something different in this story, which you'll find out as it progresses. I teased a few bits in my last journal post, but I can add a few more details, such as Wimberley having a small appearance, and I've decided Nula will be appearing as well.

With once a week updates, I have pages ready up through the middle of September. I know the story will keep running through October, but I'm not sure yet how much longer it might be.
