I've read thru a TON of your gallery and I want to compliment your sense of comic timing! Drama is E-Z, but Comedy is HARD. And you have a definite talent for balancing the story with the Funny. Keep it Up!!!

Hi

A hearty bowl of delicious and nutritious thanks to Jordan Haro and Sandra Espinoza once again for the latest installment in the adaptation of the penultimate “dA canon” storyline of Bomango, “Halcyon”! Extra thanks to Jordan, because I know he keeps pushing himself to learn and do more with each installment, and this one’s no exception :) (And happy belated birthday, Jordan!)

Despite the “old canon” nature of this particular story arc, “Halcyon” is an example of how there’s not quite a clean cut between the current comic and the older stuff. When I was working on it, I was already well into the process of writing the outline and basics of the current story, and so, THIS story functioned a bit like an appendix to the new canon, with some Gogo backstory that would apply in the future as well. It didn’t cover everything, of course, but a few elements found their way in, and would play a role down the line.

It’s a little confusing that way, I suppose, but then again, I’ve never been a master of clarity (heh heh)...

Jordan began this ambitious campaign of adaptation awhile back, and it’s been massively rewarding not only to see this story arc realized in impressive (and often surprising ways) ever since, but also the determination he’s had with sticking with it, even while I’m off hammering away on the “new” comic. I point this out because for about two years now, I haven’t looked backward on “older” work very much (often only in the context of Jordan’s adaptations), and the dedication with which he’s rendered these pieces in a new way tends to be a reminder to me that it isn’t about just cranking out “content” and always moving forward. It’s about enjoying making something, and enjoying it when it’s made.

Maybe a little hokey of a sentiment, but why else would we do it?

_____

The “brief” hiatus since I updated the comic seems to have graduated from “brief” to “I’m getting the jitters from not posting anything”, so here’s a quick little teaser for what’s coming down the pipe:

1 by VanHeist

The next scene is...sort of a different can of worms than the comic has seen so far. It’s also several pages long. This time, I wanted to try something different, and finish the entire sequence before dropping the whole thing into the reader’s lap. I realize this makes for a longer lull between updates, but if you’ll indulge me, I’d like to see how it works out.

So while I apologize for the delay in updating the comic, I can assure you that the waiting around won’t be for the sake of a single talky page (or page one of an action scene that’s spread out over a month or so...heh...).

Stay tuned!
