5C pages 48 - 70

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 7, 2014, 8:19 PM

You folks are going to love me for this. What happens when we put Emily, GG, Jess and Gradius together in a scene? Give Emily some more history, Izan too why not.

OH hooo, and yet another new character! Just wait guys, it looks like I will be getting over 2 months to work on 5C!

It will still be in BW, I will calm down some of the "Editor's Notes" as I call them, and relax the italics and bolds on the fonts. Might even reduce the pt of the font a smidge too. Lot's of awkward situations hahah!

No over hype, I have it all written down in front of me and though you guys ought to now the good news! I should be able to start working on it by months end or earlier. Be patient, I will make it as worth it as possible!




Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

No Editor's Notes? It's what I love about your comic.

Just maybe a little less and at the right spot. They will be in there though, I just have to.

You know, the whole ting over the years has been very consistent as far as lettering goes. I wanted to do something a little different even if it would get flack from people. I've always wanted to litter the pages with those notes. I mean its like getting a little director's cut each page.

That's the nice thing about not worrying about it being published, I can do what I like or try something different. I would have thought more people would have liked it. I mean my favourite page is when Gradius scores the hook up with Emily and theres a circle check mark and  "AH yeah!"

I'll keep doing it, but I'll do it more gingerly.

i'll be honest, i don't quite understand 5C, the art is great, but i can't tell where the story is going, well, more like what the focus is in it. i do hope to figure it out as you post more.

Its about how Gradius strives to accomplish his stated objective of becoming an automotive master / owning his own garage to honour his name. He struggles against family issues, deals with work and bills, changing and evolving relationships, all the while trying to get a chance to learn the mechanic trade from his uncle who lives far away and is an outcast of his own family. 


But I have also put in other characters who have diverse stories as well for those people who might not like Gradius, yet interact with him and affect his life.


These 47 pages are not the whole first story arc. The first story arc is 100 pages, I tried to tie it up here neatly  so that I could have a type of break while I amass more pages.


The idea  is that when pursuing things like goals, other things pop in and cause change for good or bad. You start the day with something in mind, and then something else happens. There is a variety to life that causes you to juggle different things at once. Seeing the same frame of time through multiple people eyes gives a strange uniformity but still distinct.


The story is as much about the other characters as it is about Gradius in a way.

alright. i see. because of all you're fighting game stuff from working with Udon, i wasn't sure when the street fights were going to start, lol. also i'm wondering, why did you decide to put it on a fictional island? it seems like it would work well in a real life city, and would have a helluva lot less to explain setting-wise. any particular reason for that?

The reason it's a different place is so that I can make similar situations politically and not be tied to names or races. Also I like map making, and used certain parameters to limit aspects of their expansion.


I enjoy world building, and I enjoy writing and explaining it. I also have it on good authority there are a few people who like to read it too !
