After ten years of distractions, detours and discouragements (almost entirely of my own doing), I’m finally finishing the third chapter of the first story arc of my own space adventure comic, Perils On Planet X, this week. You have no idea how pleased I am to actually be writing the concluding scenes of a story that has been in my head for so long… especially since the art for the damned thing has been more than half finished for, literally, years.
I’m so excited about working on it again that I really hope POPX will be successful enough to warrant artist Gene Gonzales and I producing the two further story arcs that I have in mind (I’ve always planned it as a trilogy) – and that it doesn’t take another decade (or two) to get around to telling them.
If all goes well, we’ll begin serializing Perils On Planet X online, a page or two a week, sometime in 2013, and will probably try a Kickstarter or IndieGoGo campaign to finance an eventual print volume. Stay tuned for further updates, and I’ll be sure to let people know when we’re ready to launch the new webcomic version.
