So here’s the first great Martian reveal. Hope you all like our interpretation.
And I also hope all of my deadlines and obligations are squared away enough to get us back on schedule.
My Patreon to bring the comic back has reached its first milestone goal. This is very exciting!
What does it mean?
Well, it means that as long as we stay above that first milestone you all are GUARANTEED a new comic once every other month. Maybe more, but that’ll depend on my other scheduled projects so there aren’t any promises. The plan is to start drawing in October and have the comic up the first week of November. I’ll be posting various progress shots over for the Patreon backers.
The next milestone gets the comic back on a monthly schedule. So head on over to Patreon and check out the many great rewards you can get in ADDITION to the web comic. With your support we can make something kick-ass and awesome.
So over at the Patreon page ( http://www.patreon.com/RichardCox ) we’ve reached the halfway point in getting the comic up and running regularly, albeit only on a bi-monthly schedule. This is great news! I appreciate all of the kind words and help. Even if you cannot donate monthly — I totally understand! — you can still help a LOT by sharing the Patreon link above through your social media if you think this is a worthwhile project. With your help we can see this through and maybe even get that second comic up and running.
I wish you all the best!
It’s up to you!
I’ve started up a Patreon Account, with the goal to being to have a financially sustainable method for creating fun comics, and offer some great, fair rewards to people along the way. So if you’re someone who’s enjoyed my A PRINCESS OF MARS comic (which will return if this is successful) and would like to see something new and creator-owned (HIGHJUMP) this is for you. But the Patreon page will go into detail about all of that.
YOu’ll see checking out the Patreon that it’s very A PRINCESS OF MARS heavy. This will enable me, if successful, to back off my current non-comics workload in favor of A PRINCESS OF MARS and, if lucky, start up my own, creator owned comic at the same time.
You’ll get in-process snippets of art,see comics and pages in-progress, and more. There will be early announcements of projects which I’ll be involved with, and sneak previews of pieces that I can’s share publicly, aand many reward options for people kind enough to help in this adventure.
No, I’ve not given up on the comic yet.
I’ve always said that this is a side project and as such will face delays due to life and the work that pays me, as opposed to costing me. So I’ve had comic conventions and sketch card deadlines to deal with, as well as vacation and illness. And it’s all not over yet. I’ve discovered that for some reason the holiday period is one where deadlines just keep coming. I’ve still got 2 more deadlines and a convention ahead of me this month, so updates will be sparse if at all for about another 2-3 weeks.
It also doesn’t help that the Burroughs estate has launched it’s own selection of web comics (behind a paywall no less), and are a litigious bunch of people. I have no desire to compete with them, and if they ever do actually launch a PoM web comic, that’ll pretty much be it for me. Add to that an itch I have to do something of my own (as opposed to an adaptation) and I’ve a lot to think about, on top of my deadlines and the like.
Anyway, I’ll be set up at NC Comicon the weekend of November 9-10, so if you enjoy the comic, stop by and say hi!
Well that kind of sums it up, doesn’t it? I could make excuses about the extended delay, but I won’t. We’re back.
ALSO, I’ll be at Heroes Con 2013 this coming weekend in Charlotte, NC. I’ll be doing con sketches and selling stuff, including prints (Princess of Mars is one of them) and the print edition of Chaper 1: On The Arizona Hills. So drop by and see me at table AA-1930.
WAIT, SAY WHAT??
Yep. They arrived the other day and look pretty dang good. So I’ll have these for sale for $5 this weekend (20 pages, full color). I’ll definitely be looking into getting them available to everyone else once the convention is behind me.
