Multiversal Stories

AND THINGS TAKE A TURN TOWARDS THE CLICHE CLIFFHANGER. Will our favourite spaceman come through?

One more piece of the arc to go, and I promise you, it ends with a bang. Just to let you down before the end, it’s a much smaller bang. MUCH smaller.

Meanwhile, I’m in Maine until the 16th. TWIST!

(I wrote this from the past.)

THIS IS WHERE I KINDA SORTA change the point of Peculiar Comics. I wrote this one a while back, while I was in my “Death: Myth and Reality” class with two specific limits in mind: it had to explore different understandings of death, and it had to be (mostly) wordless. I decided the easiest way to do this was with either robots or cavemen…so I went with both.

Like I mentioned before, this is where things change a bit. Peculiar Comics will still feature some of the characters I’ve used so far, but I’m shifting focus to personal experimentation with the medium. Things to look forward to coming up:

  • Slice of life stories in a superhero world (and a return to Jupter City)!
  • Golden Age-style space stories!
  • Changes in panel layout!

Stay tuned, cadets! Your starship captain commands it!

THE END OF PECULIAR COMICS is coming.

No, no, I’m not tapping out, but I am acknowledging that this story will have to come to an end at some point.

I was driving back from a friend’s house one night, and…well, it could have been a lot of things I was experiencing at the moment (including the view of the inspiration for the Jupiter City setting, as seen on the about Peculiar Comics page), but something somewhere in my thinkspot told me that I needed an ending. I needed something to work towards. While the Big Two companies can afford to go on forever due to a constant influx of staff, I, one man working an entire multiverse, can not do this forever.

I’m only human (unfortunately), and I know my limits as an artist; any number of factors could cause this thing to end at any time, and I’ve got to do as my Boy Scout training taught me and “be prepared”.

Why set this up in one of those nasty, useless zero issue things? Why post on a Tuesday? Hell, why is this in colour and not in various shades of gray?

You could sum all those things up by saying that I’m just another bastard on the Internet with a comic.

It is, however, this bastard’s birthday. So, while you’re sitting there confused and angry and ready to delete Peculiar Comics from your bookmarks, I’m overjoyed that someone out there in the ether is paying attention, as evidenced by the visit count.

Sometimes a minuscule ego stroking is the best birthday gift of all.
