Will you sell a printed book-
No. This question comes up a lot and I assure you a printed book will not happen. Things like named races and places from Everquest are the intellectual property of Sony Online Entertainment, using those types of things for profit violates copyright law. The Fair Use Act and Sony's good graces allows me to make comics in fun, it's mutually beneficial, but printing and selling these comics expressly for profit is a different matter. Basically the only way it could possibly happen would be if Sony wanted to do it, so if it's that important to you write 'em an email, you never know.
While the Everquest based strip cannot be printed without the express consent of Sony Online Entertainment without altering any mention of their intellectually property that does not prevent me from developing and publishing my own original work so depending on the interest an original story not based on EQ or any other game may be forthcoming and available for purchase. Right now this original work is in development and review, the only way to read any of it currently is to donate towards the site and right now 2 pages per month are made available and sent out to all donators for the month as a reward for their support and for their valued input.
How are the comics made-
Comics are pencilled in non repo blue lead and inked first with a Rapidoliner .25 pen then with a .08 and .05 Zig markers on smooth Bristol board. The inked comics are scanned into Photoshop 6 and colored, shaded, boxed and lettered. The normal text font used is Anime Ace, the logo's font is Alchemist. Someday I hope to afford one of those fancy Wacom Tablets and see what I can do working directly in the digital format but I'll always be stubborn when it comes to working with old fashioned paper and pencil.
Can I be in the comic?-
My only rule regarding cameo appearances in the strip is: If you ask to be in, you can't. Sorry but I find this the easiest way not to be pestered and annoyed constantly. I write people into the strip based on what race/class I need to fill a specific spot and what kind of people they are. So the only way to improve your chances is to be cool to people.
Do you take ideas for strips?-
No. I don't accept submissions. I have various reasons for this, mainly I want to do this on my own. The main point of doing this strip is to improve as an artist and writer, it's practice, and I prefer to do it myself. I appreciate input, but I don't take submitted story ideas.
