Hi folks. Sorry about the long, long wait for a new page. I've been proudly consistently uploading at least once per week for a few months, but suddenly coursework happened all at once. Don't worry, hopefully by next week the biggest bits will be out of the way and I can get back to work. For now, I'm going to post a little filler art piece tomorrow, so watch out for that. We'll be back on track before you know it!
Also, it just so happens that Charli's laptop has thrown a wobbly and accidentally a malware. I've got some script though, hopefully that'll be fixed in a jiffy too.
*Sigh* I really wish I could just do comics all the time. The rest of life is so . . . complicated!
Anyway, that's me. Thanks for the patience as always.
Howdy folks, just to let y'all know, there's a new vote incentive up on TWC. For the next few weeks I'm going to go chapter-by-chapter making covers for each one, so tune in for THAT. As always, you can vote for us once per day, per network and every single one is greatly appreciated!
I'm also archiving all the old incentives on my deviantart, so they're not lost forever. I'll post incentives on dA just over a month after they air on TWC, so there's still plenty of incentive to vote, but if you missed one there is still hope!
Hahahaha. I knew this would happen eventually. And triggyJ called me paranoid.
Anyway, without further ado: the apology. Not from me, this time, but from TriggyJ. His internet is broken, so he can't submit the comic today. alas. But he'll probably submit it tomorrow or the day after, or maybe even Thursday?
Don't hold your breath, is basically the message.
nah, I'm just kidding. The new page will be with you as soon as he can humanly make it happen. Cross my heart and hope to fly.
A very special and not-particularly spoopy incentive has been added on TWC! Check it out by voting for Ashes here - http://www.topwebcomics.com/vote/14377/default.aspx
Ok, first thing's first. You wouldn't believe how long I wondered about that title. 'A (preemptive) apology' vs 'An (preemptive) apology' is a question that consumed me for approximately seconds. Maybe even... minutes. (You get why I'm confused, right? I'm not just rambing about things. 'a' because preemptive, or 'an' because 'apology'? Who knows? When will this paranthesis end? Again, who knows? Probably about now though)
So it's come to my attention that I've never actually written an Ashes blogpost. As the scriptwriter, author, and a blogger, this seems weird. Strange, even. So I decided to rectify that situation. Why did I choose to do it now when I could have been having dinner? Again, who knows?
To business! I, Charlifarli, am the scriptwriter. This means once a week, without fail, I send TriggyJ an excerpt for him to draw. Sometimes I even manage to send him a couple of pages of script. Those are the good days. Then he draws them, if it's all fine and dandy. If it isn't fine and dandy, he tells me, and I say "oh". And then do some more script, or explain. Mostly I just leave him to it. (even if sometimes his onomatopoeia leaves something to be desired... #bangworksjustaswell)
But sometimes, the days are not good. Sometimes I ... forget. Or, er, 'prioritise other things'. When I say 'other things', I should mean work. I really mean iPlayer/sleep/monopoly
/secret agent business.So if the page is late, it's most likely my fault. And I'm sorry. But I'm pretty sure you'll agree it's worth the wait.
