I've said it before, and likely I will end up saying it again, but the goal of this story is not to create an entirely new fantasy world--my goal is to more to add to our own reality. I enjoy "what ifs" more than "never could happen but this sure is fun!"
Another of the goals for this story arc (the earth crossover) in particular is the deconstruction of the Wind myth. Many readers still refer to them as gods, even though on page one it says they're not. They're creations. But the thing about myths and legends is that they are 99% exaggeration, and 1% factual kernel. All the story arcs involving the North Wind on Earth (seriously, if you haven't caught on to who this guy is yet...) will be to change your conception of them, and the Nashrri. It will be fun! If you can sit back and enjoy the ride (and not drive your car into a hole.)
In other news, TOMORROW is the final day to apply to join SpiderForest! SF is the place that hosts all my comics, and it's a wonderful community for anyone looking to find something of much higher quality than Smackjeeves or Drunkduck. Self-hosted members are welcome! Info for applications is here.
Thanks everyone who donated to the Comic Creators For Freedom fund! We raised $7500 this year in only 2 weeks! That is so amazing. You guys all rock.
Regarding the drawing for the original art, I'm ashamed to admit I haven't done it yet. I helped my mom move 16 years worth of HOME to a new house and had in total, 25 minutes worth of internet time. I am exhausting. Will do the drawing and announce the winner tonight!
Toodles, thanks for reading! <3
