Okay, so, if you’ve been paying attention, you have obviously noticed that I am not running Carbon in those weekly updates anymore. Thank you for noticing. The reason is this: I felt that Carbon, the story that it is and is going to be, does not lend itself very well to the one-page-per-week situation. It is to be read in large chunks, since it is a slow-developing story. And, although it was fun do dabble in doing full-color comics, I have decided to ditch that idea and just go with black & white…at least for now. So, the new plan is to release Carbon as a couple of volumes, both in print and in e-book form. So, I haven’t quit making Carbon. I’m still at it and loving it. I just won’t be running it online. That’s all for now.
CARBON is my latest and most ambitious graphic novel. For the time being, I will be running the story in weekly one-page updates. Every Wednesday will see a new page of the story, right here on the Just Mad Books website. The story takes place in the city-state of Carbon, which finds itself in the midst of political turmoil thanks to a newly elected corrupt governor. He has made it his mission to rid Carbon of all Seers (those born with psychic abilities). The plot of the story revolves around a young girl who’s gone missing & her retired-detective uncle who seeks to find her, while enlisting the help of his old partners two kids (one’s a Seer/one’s a private eye). Mystery, suspense, cool psychic stuff and lots and lots of drama. What more do you need?
I was going to make postcards of this to promote CARBON at the upcoming Wizard World show in Chicago, but it didn’t happen. Still cool, though. Right now I am leaning toward running CARBON online, with weekly updates, and in full color. I plan to launch it soon.
I am once again offering the Breathers graphic novel in a digital reader format for all you people who are in to that sort of thing. And I am selling it for a measly $5. And do you know why? Because I can. That’s why.
