The first thing I blogged about on this blog, my comic involving a tiger shark and cholera is still happening. It’s just not heading to where it was originally intended – The Strumpet issue 3.
I’d finished a very compact three page comic on time for their deadline, but I realised that I could do so much more with the concept. So I’m now turning it into about twenty six pages of digital comic that I hope to self-publish later this year, before Christmas. If it gets enough interest I may consider a print run.
Set on the east coast of North America in 1899, the comic is about a struggling travelling show that has to take extreme measures to survive after one particularly bad season.
I hasten to add that this is not a steampunk comic. The only thing that might get punked are the social and moral values/expectations of the time.
