This milestone of 4500 on-line episodes got here at a considerably humorous time, all issues thought-about. I used to be on FB enduring (and that actually is the suitable phrase) somebody’s rant that “nobody is telling MY tales!”… to which I replied, “So sit down and begin writing them!” Not the reply he needed, in fact. He needed Hollywood to return knocking with a zakillion-dollar cheque first. I made a decision, okay, not well worth the hassle anymore, not once I’m engaged on the longest LGBTQ graphic novel in historical past and it’s rattling positive telling my story. 🙂
True, it doesnt have the huge readership of sure different LGBTQ webcomics, however that’s no massive deal. I lengthy handed the purpose of caring about that as a result of I knew that my readership, as small because it is likely to be, was a mightily devoted one. And thank God for that.
The factor in regards to the strip is that we’re coping with a crew of their 30s and 40s right here: everybody in it got here out a very long time in the past. They’re nicely previous that time in life. Now, most of them are in fairly regular relationships. Those who arent havent given up wanting however dont obsess over it. Some have households with babies. Others have a dungeon within the basement with a St Andrews Cross. There’s a thruple that’s about as inclusive as a homosexual male relationship can get. And it actually does please me to no finish once I’m halfway by means of a storyline, and the characters actually do resolve to take over and ship it in a route they really feel higher suited to deal with. That occurs greater than you’ll be able to think about. And on the identical time, my devoted readers aren’t afraid on bit to name me down if I do one thing they dont assume Doc or Mik or Al would do in actual life. They’ve come to embrace my guys nearly as a lot as I do, and that’s the very best complement I can assume of.
So forgive me for bragging a bit about this. At this stage of life, it’s good to know that I’ll certainly be forsaking a legacy of… nicely, near-monumental proportions. It’s all headed to a few archives, and I wish to assume that possibly it’ll hold round for a number of years extra in consequence. If not, nicely, I wont be ready to do a lot about it, will I… 🙂
OK, on to 5 thousand!!!
