I missed a chance to post last week due to travel, but it seems like everyone really jumped on that last page, so it’s safe to say it did decently well without my help. Even so, last week’s update was page 5. This week’s is page 6, with Ronan being overly surly.
Additionally, I thought it would be fun to write some articles regarding some of the smaller meta relevant to Electric Fencer, so I’ve opened up the Extras section of the menu and started off with two articles: Sestius? Wait, what? and What is Klein? I’ll be adding more in the future, with current plans including a discussion on family names (we have three in relation to the Alexanders), maps, and illustrations, and more.
I did some new art of some of our characters in celebration of Issue 2! They’ve been added to the site banner rotation and you’ll get a random one each time you reload the homepage. There’ll be more to come soon.
And with that, Issue 1 comes to a close. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed working on it!
As stated in the previous update, we’ll be taking next week off to finalize Issue 2 and get it uploaded to the website and ready for launch when we return on November 17. Mark your calendars, because we’ll be back in 2 weeks with more Electric Fencer, with new characters, more intrigue, and more adventure coming your way.
A lot’s happened over the last few weeks and so I decided to treat myself to a little Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. Great stuff, except for the part where Patrick Bowser-cided me three times in a row and won.
It’s been a long day and though and though pages 20 and 21 went up, I only just got the time to put up an actual blog post.
So Issue 1 is coming to a close very soon, and with that, rather than the usual two pages, we have three pages going up next week. I really liked the color job I did on these pages, so here’s hoping you like them too when they go up.
Following that, the comic will take off for a week to finalize the edits on Issue 2 and prepare the cover. Additionally, while the pace for Issue 1 was admittedly all over the place and a bit wonky, Issue 2 is a little more even-keeled and as such, we’ll dial it back to one page a week for the time being as we continue working on content for the site and experimenting with a good format for site updates. We might throw an extra page or two in an update here or there to help with pacing, depending on what’s happening in the story.
For now, April O’Neil has an interview with Old Betsy and the Five Avengers.
Sorry for the late update. Convention’s over, but the comic’s still rolling. Today we have pages 18 and 19. We’ve also got another character bio: Mr. Novak.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at 3RC Lite! If you’re reading this and came from the convention, welcome! We’re glad to have you here. This weekend, we debuted a new version of Electric Fencer Shorts! at the convention, which featured a new final panel. I’ll have that up on Patreon and Ko-Fi in a few days.
Pages 14 and 15 are up, and it appears one of our boys can call upon the power of Thor himself. Made an update to Andrew‘s profile, and now we have a new one: The Hoods. We’ve got a bit of a slow burn going on the action, but the intrigue is starting to pick up.
Just a reminder that October 16–17, I’ll be at 3 Rivers Comicon Lite in Homestead, PA so if you’re in the area, come hang out for a bit.
Pages 12 and 13 are now up and with them come three new characters: Renée, Marcus, and Lance. We’re officially past the halfway point of Issue 1.
I made a few cosmetic changes to the site. Picked a few colors I felt worked better for the branding of the series and modified the menu a little bit.
I’ve also been diligently at work on prep for the 3 Rivers Comicon and will have lots to sell and give away. It’s been an exhausting (but also fun and interesting) process and I’m looking forward to seeing where things go with doing cons and the like. It’s also pretty expensive, and I don’t exactly have Renée’s levels of disposable income, so if you’re enjoying Electric Fencer so far, maybe consider supporting us on Patreon or Ko-Fi, or even buying something from us on RedBubble? It’d be super cool if you did :v
