*This of course refers back to my 2014 Temple of Turmoil story and the page where all of the evil people having a conference call. Which was long before he ever announced his candidacy or won the election. After the Skull was defeated and taken into custody, his former associate and now President arranged his release, which was really a double cross since the President sent his personal hit squad after the Skull. Since some of the Skull's other associates have ended up dead, he sensibly let the world think he's dead and hop off to another dimension.

A couple minor characters are making cameos. The woman is Deena, who we saw before in Ruthless Ro-Man. and Colonel Battle who showed up at the end of Temple of Turmoil.

I decided to make Deena an investigative journalist. I had originally planned for this character to be Felicia Kingsley from Chippewa Ghosts's Bleach Blonde Valkyries of the Fourth Reich. but considering her extensive role in that comic, I just thought it would be easier to go with an original character here, and since Deena was pretty much a blank slate I figured she could serve the purpose.

Okay, the new story will be called "Up the River" and will start August 4th. So far, I have four pages completed with the 5th page in the process of getting inked and colored with pages 6 and 7 sketched out.
Kludgeing up some plumbing.

Not my usual creation, but I am kind of proud of it.
The pipe going to the dishwasher burst on us,  and it became clear from the guys at the hardware store we apparently have some weird non-standard pipe size. It's just a sliver over 5/8" (so I'm suspecting these pipes were cheap foreign imports sized on the metric scale.) They had nothing that was going to fit it. So I've ended up buying a bunch of gear to kludge together a solution.

* A piece of vinyl tubing with a 5/8" inner diameter. Fit's fine on the new pipe, but was struggle to get it down the old pipe.
* 2 hose clamps to help hold the tubing firmly.
* Some water weld Epoxy putty on the ends to seal it off.
* FiberFix repair wrap. It's some kind of fiber mesh that sets solid after being soaked in water. I wrapped up the center of the pipe to hold the two pipe sections together.

I'm waiting for everything to cure, and then we'll see if this will work.

Epilogue 12 [Finale]
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Epilogue
Page 12 of 12


So now Kaza, Gwenna and Jungl-La are out on the town for a bit of fun and sight seeing, and Jung-La suggest meeting a friend of hers.

Basically we are right where TheCosmicBeholder had the trio in his  Team-In-One comic cover. The story he made up for the comic had them having a run-in with "magic dog walkers." Which in a super hero world would be a viable job opportunity. Who knows what kind of weird pets your typical New York hipster wizard might have, and they are likely to need somebody to take them to the park once a day.

ArtbroSean of Spying with Lana has an interesting cross promotion event going on all summer. The idea is to partner up with another creator and you each do a pin up of your partner's character and display it somewhere (your comic page, a vote incentive, Patreon, etc.)


The new story is shaping up pretty well. I have a solid idea for where I am going with this.So far I have three pages finished a queued up, and they will start in August. I'm shooting for at least 13 pages, but I do think the story may run longer.
Rockslab has an itty bitty came on the latest page of Inferno. The scene is supposed to go on a few more pages, so hopefully we'll get a better view of him soon.
Fox Characters: Thor
I'm sort of combining ideas here: Fox Features Syndicate's short lived Thor character and the more recent female Thor of Marvel.

Glenda Wright is the assistant to Dr. Grant Farrell, an archeologist who has been excavating a massive tomb in Iceland.  It's the fabled Barrow of Ragnorok, the final resting place of the Norse gods. A group of Neo-Nazi occultists have also gotten wind of the find, and taken the excavation crew prisoner. Hiding within the tomb, Glenda is drawn to an artifact, when she toches it, she finds herself transformed into Thor, Goddess of Thunder.

Epilogue 11
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Epilogue
Page 11 of 12


Today marks eight years I have been working on Kaza and Gwenna. I published my first page of The Serpent Sorceress on this day in 2010, and have been working on this comic at least somewhat regularly ever since. I also noticed in all that time, I haven't ever had Kaza and Gwenna really kiss. So it seemed like something I should fix.
Loading...
There's a good chance Rockslab (and possibly Kaza and Gwenna) will be making a cameo in another comic soon. I'll let you know when it happens.
Back in March, I bought a cheap artist's sketchbook at Micheal's. Since then I've been using it to jot down all the notes and ideas I've had for the comic. Today I drew out a schedule for my weekly pages, which I have founds helps me focus on getting the comic done. When I can see that I want 13 pages done before October it helps make the task seem less daunting.
Okay, a bit of brain storming has given me a good idea for my next story. Here are a few tidbits of info to tease you with.

  • Kaza and Gwenna are back in the jungle.
  • The villain is derived from a public domain source.
    • The character isn't currently listed on the PDSH wiki.
    • The character comes from a 1952 American Comics Group (ACG) title.
  • Several of the supporting characters I've used before are appearing again.
    • The Commissioner is of course back
    • Duke and Sammy, the lounge act duo from my unfinished 24 Hour comic from 2017 will be making a cameo.
    • Captain Noranga, who made a small appearance in The Phantom Ape, will be playing a role in the story.
    • Nula will probably not be turning up, but I have been thinking about some ideas with her.
In a more general sense, I've decided to establish a bit of fictional geography in my comic. I have decided on the Republic of Buranda as the name of the country this is all happening in. I've used the name Buranda before in the comic, in reference to a small village in the area. I think I may have subconsciously lifted the name from Yes, Minister since they featured an African nation of that name in a few episodes. Which is a good enough reason to for using it.

Furthermore, I have decided Buranda's closest neighbor will be the Kingdom of Zamunda, another fictitious African nation. I'm still developing some details of the history and geography.
I just finished the last page for Epilogue. It ended up being 12 pages long and will wrap up in the next two weeks. Which means it's time for me to start working on the next story. But right now I'm the indecisive donkey between two bales of hay. I have a bunch of ideas for stories, but I just don't know what I want to do.

As a mental organization method, I sat down and listed all of my story ideas that I have floating around. Some are little more than some scribblings in a note book, some have solid outlines, and few others already have some pages done, but are nowhere near complete. All together, I have 15 distinct ideas floating about that are in various stages of development. Mind you, that doesn't mean 15 stories. Some of these ideas will just sit on the back burner for ever and a day, and end up getting dumped in with some others (like how Earth-N ended up seguing into the Halloween Cameo Caper.)

Right now, I just need to figure out where to start.

Page 9 of 12

The Danielle Gwenna is talking about was featured in a piece of fan art I did for Pow! Right in the Nostalgia! as part of a request that comic's creator had for various extended family members. So she made her first comic appearance in PRITN though now I am tempted to have her show up in the jungle.

Quick little status update: I've been working on a few more pages for Epilogue. It's going to end up being 12 pages  all together.I've also got a couple stories in process, but whether they see the light of day any time soon is another matter.

I'm really looking to get back to basics with Kaza and Gwenna. They've been all over the place lately,I just want to get them back to what they are about: adventures in the jungle.
Captain Califonia
Now here's an obscurity for you.

Hero High was a short lived animated series from Filmation (the company most known for He-Man and She-Ra) that aired on NBC during the 1981-82 season. Captain California and his girlfriend Glorious Gal were the pretty blonde nice kids who were at odds with emerging bad guy Rex Ruthless and his partner in crime Dirty Trixie.

The Captain's only apparent powers come from his seemingly sentient, flying surfboard called Wipeout.  He mostly just flies around and leaves all the heavy lifting to Glorious Gal.
