Sluri’s tournament saga is ending for now – but we will definitely be coming back to it later! Will our heroine’s luck hold out? Will new friendships and rivalries bloom in the heat of battle? Will the correct grammatical usage of “jabroni” be explored unto exhaustion? The answer to at least 2 of these questions is “yes, probably”.
I really wanted this story to be something really big and special and different… did everything I tried work? PROBABLY NOT! But I enjoyed the challenge and the change of pace. I hope you did too!
That said, despite all the preparation I did for this story, it really wound up kicking my teeth in. I am super burned out! Also I have a bunch of non-Badnix projects descending on me like ravenous deadline-vultures. So, I think I need to take a lil’ break. We’ll probably pick up with the next story sometime in July, but keep an eye out for blog posts & some fun filler stuff in the meantime.
The next story is a really, really fun one, starring a character who hasn’t shown up on-panel in ages! Caaan’t wait~
I did some Mario RPG inspired art for the Pipe Dreams water charity zine – which as of yesterday is now on sale! Lots of great game-inspired art in there, and the money goes to support a good cause, so go check it out, why don’t you.
I’m back from my travels abroad – just in time for the end of BANDNIX! How great was that, right? Imagine how good Alex’s actual comics must be! Oh wait, you don’t have to imagine, because his beautiful comic magnum opus is already on the internet, primed for your eyeball-consumption.
Anyway, the very long Legitimate Story Content dry spell is finally going to come to an end next week. I am excited for what’s coming next! And also nervous that I may have bitten off way more than I can chew! Remember to check back on Monday, so we can all be excited and nervous together.
Oh my goodness! I’m excited to announce that, while I’m away, we are all gonna be treated to some guest comics from Alexander Swenson!
If you are a Person of Good Tastes then you probably know Alex already as the creator of the brilliant comic JOB DOG, and co-creator of the game Pachinko Man (which incidentally is still one of the best creative things I’ve been a part of).
He also created some wonderful BANDNIX guest comics back in 2012, which this current batch appears to be a sequel to. Will Rog finally get to play the trumpet? I wait with bated breath alongside all of you.
Anyway, I’ll be returning later this month! (And I promise I will bring actual new comics that are like, a part of the actual story when I do!)
