Hiya guys. Happy day before 4th of July. So… thaaaaat’s the 3rd of July, yes.
Just wanted to touch base regarding some schedule reshuffling that’s happening around here. If you’re a Z&F super-fan, you may have thought Monday’s comic was the last of the first 2014 “season”, which is usually March 1st – June 30th. Well, good news, IT’S NOT OVER! I will continue posting MORE Zorphbert & Fred comics here on Monday, all the way through the end of AUGUST!
But, now… the bad news.
After that I won’t be returning until January of 2015. And here’s why:
It’s been 8 years of staying on schedule and cranking out comics twice, sometimes three times, and for a while FIVE times a week. I do about a dozen+ comic cons and book/craft shows a year. Add in the freelance jobs that roll in (actual payment takes precedence), and what you have is a very overworked and exhausted gal. I need a break. Longer than my usually 2 month off-season (which I tend to fill up with catch-up work anyway). I need to settle and allow my brain to reset, and see where I want to go with Z&F and how much longer. I am halfway done with Book 4 now. And to be honest, I MAY decide to wrap up the series at the end of book 4, but I haven’t decided. Z&F may be reincarnated into a different form– graphic novel? single panel? Who knows. But I hope to figure all that out on my longer break. The end result may be a brand new comic altogether, too! I have lots of swirling ideas but nothing solid.
Also, for those wondering, there will be no more off-season ebook offerings. Much of that content I am posting for free right here, through August. That’s it, I hope it clears up any questions or confusion. Stayed tuned on MONDAYS for more comics!
I am pretty stoked! Can ya tell?
It’s my “home show”! And now my BIGGEST show of the year– Wizard World Philladelphia!
Every year, my most profitable show, and it always out-does itself from the previous year. The crowds are great, the cosplay is top-notch and always entertaining, and SO many panels to go to! The celeb line-up is insane– Walking Dead & Dr. Who cast members, plus Christopher Lloyd and Whoopie Goldberg and WWE folk! Not to mention the endless floormap of vendors and artists selling awesome geeky stuff you won’t find anywhere else! Have I sold it well enough yet???
