This strip-style is probably going to be the new format for future pages, with hopefully and Monday/Thursday update schedule. A full page will probably be tossed in there every now and again, but not for a few weeks at least. I am in full throttle for graduation, moving to a new city, buying a new car, and all-around wrapping-up-of-things. Check out the forum for previews of the next two strips.
The SpiderForest Comic of the Week this week is Cetiya! Cetiya is a cyberpunk comic with a manga feel, but an art style I'd peg as a hybrid of eastern and western styles. It's kinda like a cross between the Matrix and Minority Report. Yes, yes, I always describe things in the context of movies, I apologize. Secret government agencies and cover-ups abound in a world where this sufficiently advancde technology is basically, magic. I love that quote. Go and check it out! Cetiya!
Since I didn't update this comic last week I didn't post it, but Denise "Darwin" Randall, creator of a heck-of-a-lot of comics, including Gemutations: Plague, was the Comic of the Week. Darwin's SpiderForest mirror just caught up with her latest pages and will now become the main site. On top of that, she hit the 200 page mark! G:P follows the story of David Scott, AKA Tigershark, a genetically modified mercenary turned partially into a shark. The story deals with a virus that is causing mutations in New Fresno, California, perpetrated by a mastermind out for revenge. Tigershark and his significant other Angelina, both Gemues themselves against their wills, are out to stop the spread of the plague before it is too late.
In other news, car. I have a new car. Well, not YET. My dad, who used to be a used car salesman--back when they were truly sharks who attacked at the slightest expression of vehicular desire--is hashing out the deal. I spent many an hour test driving so many different cars it was unbelievable. A great learning experience though. In the end, it was a battle between the Ford Focus (hatchback) and the Honda Fit. If I didn't have a huge dog, I'd have chosen the Ford, but the roominess of the Honda won out. Still...I will regret not having the power of that Ford. Vroom vroom. Flooring that car on the highway was awesome. My old Accord...I'd fear breaking it if I ever had to floor it. Since I haven't had a car for about 5 weeks now, I am very excited. It's a cool idea to bike everywhere or take public transportation, but there are times where one simply needs a car. I look forward to that little bit of personal freedom again. Not the car payments...but the freedom. Yes.
Peace out, peeps. Much studying and thesis writing to do. Wish me luck!
