And that’s the end of that story. Thanks for reading! We’ll start something new and less maudlin come Thursday.
I’ve got a shirt.woot derby entry up for vote this week, and if you’ve ever purchased anything from woot before, you’re eligible to vote it up. I’d appreciate it if you did!
The theme this week is vintage tees, and so my entry is a spoof on 1980′s cartoon shows like the Monchichis, Biskitts, Wuzzles, Popples, etc, only, you know, nerdier.
I’ve been doing a bit of tweaking and fine-tuning of this site, some of them you can see, some of them you can’t yet, but here’s what’s new:
February was a pretty good month for The Dawn Chapel. We got a lot of love from blogs and other comics, and every time someone retweets a link to the comic, it just sends me over the moon. In particular, I am sending cosmic waves of gratitude toward Big Big Truck for linking us up in her livejournal; Nikki Jeske gave us a plug for #webcomicwednesday (which is a twitter-hostile hashtag if I ever saw one) and linked us up on her webcomic, the Family Menagerie, as well; and livejournal’s Quiet Dignitea also had some very nice things to say about us.
For March, I have two shorter pieces planned, each of them four pages in length, as well as a one-off. If you’re good at math, yes, that means I’m planning nine pages this month, which will mean keeping an update schedule of not one, but two pages a week. Is this madness? Have I gone mad? The answer is: yes. Mad like a March hare.
(If you’re bad at math, it still means I’m planning nine pages this month. I don’t discriminate.)
Thirty pages is in my mind kind of a magical number, I read somewhere once that that’s the minimum number of pages you should have in your archive before you submit a comic for review, as you need at least thirty pages to really get a solid idea of what a comic is like.
It’s possible that the number is totally arbitrary and there’s no merit to that argument at all, but there it is, and we’re going to sprint to that milestone.
Or, hang on, we’re going to March to it, if you prefer. (and I will gladly accept high-fives for that joke via paypal.)
Okay, great, we have a wallpaper for you to put on your desktop! Now you can boot up and be melancholy. Available in five flavors:
More on the way as I finish them!
