A NOTE ABOUT UPDATES
Hey guys. As most of you have noticed, I've been updating with filler pages lately and I haven't updated a full comic page in over a month. I am so, so sorry about this. As I've said before, my homework as a design student is very demanding and these comic pages take about five hours to draw. A lot of the time when I want to start working on the comics, I get assigned another project and I can't justify spending five hours on a hobby instead of my homework. I LOVE this comic like crazy and I don't want to give it up. But in order to proceed with the comic without giving it up entirely, I'm going to have to update less frequently. Say once every two weeks or so.
I've been on uni holidays for the last two weeks and almost every day of those holidays have been spent doing homework. I thought I'd have more time to work on them but I haven't.
Here's the thing - I COULD update every week, but all my drawings would be crappy sketches or stick figures. If that's okay with you guys, it's okay with me. Seriously, let me know.
Anyway, I love you guys like crazy. Please don't hate me.
Love Love Love Love Love from Viv, the artist.
ABOUT THE COMIC
Mary Sue Academy stars a quirky group of characters whose lives all somehow centre around a place called the Mary Sue Academy. This is the Mary Sue equivalent of an every-day high school, and its graduates all go out finding work in fanfiction, literary canon and sometimes film.
The Goddess Mary Sue (the original and first Sue) is the founder, and spends most of her time singing and lounging around in fabulous dresses. Vittie (a gangsta Sue) is the new tough-as-nails principal who aspires to greater things. Meanwhile the guild of Mary Sue Hunters are constantly on the prowl, flaming any Mary Sues who break canon law and get out of line.
In the most current storyline, Bella Swan from the Twilight universe has taken over Fandom with her army of sparkly vampires. It's up to geeky human girl Claire McGill, her best guy-friend Sam and a Motley Crew of Mary Sues and Gary Stus to try and save the world from Bella's evil clutches.
It's part romance, part comedy, part action and part murder mystery. YOU LOVE IT.
DRUNKDUCK.COM REVIEW OF MARY SUE ACADEMY
AUGUST 04, 2008 - 6:28am
If fanfiction were real, then fanfiction characters would be real... including Mary Sues, those perfectly despicable do-it-alls. And where would they come from? Why, a Mary Sue Academy of course, where they learn all their tooth-sickening traits, perfect their niche (there's even a Little Mermaid), and are unleashed upon the world. Clever premise, fun characters, cute art, and funny writing - the best bits are the Mary Sues themselves!
