I'm proud to announce www.MayflowerComic.com, the dedicated home to my new comic. As the most recent post there will show you, the site will continually expand with articles and intel concerning the Mayflower universe its characters, factions, and eventually locations, tech/gear, and vehicles. MayflowerComic.com will also be the place to order Mayflower issues as they're released, and while you wait, the blog roll will provide side stories, extra designs and sketches, and walkthroughs of the art process. Think wiki database + a stream of content and art.

A few weeks ago I realized if I had a central place devoted to Mayflower, I'd be inspired and motivated to post supplemental content and random art from the universe more often, which in turn would provide me with more energy for the actual interior art of the comic. If I created a site that combined my 70+page sourcebook with the wave of stories I'm smacked with every day, I'd have a published outlet while I work so it didn't feel like I was just drawing into a void. The site wouldn't be possible without my friend, Mike Daly, who integrated the site's blog, allowing me to update from anywhere.

*UPDATE*
Sorry for spamming, everyone! I thought DA was being wonky with this new journal writing format, but as it turns out, I'm just an idiot - so this will be the one, true, journal entry!
  • Listening to: My Morning Jacket
  • Reading: X-Men: Legacy

  • Playing: Mass Effect 3
  • Eating: Panera
  • Drinking: frosted cherry limeade from Panera...

How many issues will there be?

A lot. The first arc will be 5-6 issues, then there will be a few stand-alone issues, and then back to chapter two with another arc. I'll probably take some time off between arcs to work on other projects, but yeah: this project will be going on for years.

Currently the first arc is fully scripted, but I've plotted about 5 major arcs and come to think of my characters as real people over the last few years. I plan to have a number of additional issues in between the arcs highlighting specific characters and side plots (sometimes those can turn out to be the best issues in a series). So yes, a long-term project, with possible game spinoffs by a friend (that's what the Seeker stuff was a while back).

This is a universe to play around in for a long time. :)

I wish I had my own - none of these Journal entries are showing up on my page. What am I doing wrong?

The system's a bit... wonky. I see three of this journal in my inbox.

Weird... I'd love to make it my journal highlight on my profile... :/

:shrug: I'd check your upload and journal preferences, but that's the extent of my technical skill.
Anyway, what kind of update schedule will Mayflower have, roughly speaking?

I haven't nailed down the exact schedule yet, but at least a couple of meaningful pieces of content a week. I hope to get into a rhythm!

(I think I figured out what went wrong on the journals - now I just have to figure out how to delete the extra ones...)

Count on tons of Halo fans keep a very close eye on this, hmm?

If they'd like to. I mean, I'm sure Halo inspired aspects of my universe, and I know Bungie's original art team definitely made a big impact on my style, but I'm also fully aware I have to earn my readers. I don't expect people to fall in love with this universe immediately, but I hope over time and how much content I pour into it, people will start to see it as real as it is in my head. :)
