When I was responding to a reader question recently, I realized I should make an announcement about my current plans.
After I finished the epic holiday arc, I was delighted to see that season two of Hannibal was around the corner. I kicked around various arcs, but as I brainstormed I realized that my reason for starting the comic (the hiatus) was ending. I felt free to go wherever I wanted.
The question was, where?
That question challenged me. As a writer, I’m BIG on plot. I love plotting. With the comic, though, I plotted as I went along.
To be honest, it’s been an awesome experience. I’ve enjoyed plotting as I went along more than I thought I would, and the comic has allowed me to met some wonderful people.
When I consider where to go next in the comic, though, I think I’d like to do something that has a plot from the get go.
So, plans …
I’m going to be starting a new comic in a couple weeks. I’ll continue to run Stix until then. After that, Stix will go into hiatus. I toy with doing him as a weekly, possibly on Saturdays (you guys know he’s going to react to every new episode of Hannibal).
Maybe plotting a webcomic from the beginning will be better. Maybe I’ll discover that I prefer plotting things out as I go along. Either way, I plan to create something cool for you guys. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
well i’m glad to see that you’re plotting and getting new ideas but i do love the stix and friends comic and hope that the hiatus isn’t forever since i love the characters. though i’m sure the new comic will be just as good if not better i know i’ll always have a place in my heart for stix and friends.
