I decided to stop using Tumblr to update this comic. I didn’t like the look of it there and I couldn’t change pages once I posted them. I’ve gone back and edited some of the dialogue and I wanted to post that. So I’m archiving this on my site where I have more control. Click on the page to get taken to the updated version of the story.
I just finished “Defrost” again. I think this is the third draft, excluding the original thumbnail draft. I’m now going to put the pages together and get them printed as a little comic. I think I’m going to try RA Comics. I’ll let you know when it’s available.
Here’s page 28 from what I guess is the third draft of this story (or fourth, if one includes the thumbnail draft). The top two panels are from the second draft and the bottom four are from the first draft. Also, this is the new page 28 and the second draft was 28 pages total. So this draft is longer.
Also, the warehouse in here is the same one from Jack Face.
So maybe “Defrost” is a revision of Jack Face.
And just for fun, here’s page 23 of the new version of “Defrost.”
Okay, I’ll post this one too, since it ends the first attempt to get a job.
I am now going to get rid of the old version of “Defrost.” Also, I don’t think I’m going to post the rest of the revised pages.
I just checked out the exhibitors list for SPX and I’m not listed. The space is closed and my check was never cashed. I guess that means I’m not going to be exhibiting there in September. I don’t know if I moved on it too late or what. I haven’t even tried to sign up for the APE, so I this means I won’t be exhibiting at any cons this year.
On another note, the revision of “Defrost” is done and I have to figure out where I can submit a 28-page story. Most literary journals and comics anthologies don’t take stories that long. I have at least two places in mind right now. If you have any suggestions, let me know.
And since I’m done with “Defrost,” I’m working on Carnivale again. Hopefully a new page (page 113) will be up some time this week.
