A whole comic for free, and Girl 8?

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 11, 2013, 8:38 AM

23 pages of 5C for free!


<da:thumb id="410817778"/>



Well, at least as far as NA standards go, 22-24 pages is a full floppy comic book. I gave you a free glimpse at 5C, and I have another 20 or so pages for you as well!

For a BW comic, i'm happy that it is getting any attention at all. I know that i'm more known for SF stuff, but this is the type of story i've always wanted to write and illustrate. I'll say that the next  pages are a bit more quick with less informational content and more character drama. Increasingly, the characters own stories start to diverge a bit.

It should be said though that 5C was not meant to be a web comic, it's mean to be read in one shot, at least the first story arc so that you can see the flow of it better. I think if you go back and read it from the beginning  to page 23 that i posted today you will get a much different feel than when you were waiting for it  every 2 days or so.

As for me, right now i'm cranking away on Momo and trying to wrap it all up by january. If it gets renewed, then that's also something i'll have to consider. On top of this i'm still renovating and trying to sell my home in the summer. The only real way i'd be able to continue 5C is if my work load lessens so i can build up more pages.

I'll probably move the story to Patreon after the last page of this 42 or so page stretch.

ALSO....


I'm actually considering if it's possible to do another Girl 7 book, this time , with more group art, a story of sorts, and 3 - 5 in depth tutorials on different styles. The book would not be so much a trip to the uncanny valley, but much more varied like the old SF tribute books. What do you think?

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

In my opinion, the black and white gives depth and a more classic feel whenever I'm reading you 5c comic. Im really lovin the work you put into this and I wouldn't mind buying a copy of 5c if it helps you. :D

Ive loved every page of it.  Props to you for having been able to work on it so diligently.  I have all the time in the world but the energy is just not there to spend more than a couple of hours a day ... if not less ... on my pet projects.

Good luck with all your ventures ;)

Really enjoying 5C so far Omar and would most definitely pick it up if there was a physical copy to be had in the future. The prospect of a G8 is pretty exciting. Just from your short sentence I can imagine it will be a pretty solid book. Looking forward to what the future brings.

The Jess in 5C is not the same as the on in G7, but it would be interesting to hear them talk, even if its only like an "Ask Ibuki" bio type thing.

I say go for it. Would be very interesting to what they have to say to each other. I like stories where characters who look alike and have the same names, but from different universes meet. Call it "Crisis of two Jess'".
