    Aaaand we're Official! And live!

    NEW FREE COMIC, SET IN THE CROSSED UNIVERSE, BEGINS ON MARCH 14TH

    “WISH YOU WERE HERE is a story about a fixed community on one of the bleak little rocks off the coast of Scotland. It’s about monsters who look like people, and people who act like monsters. It’s about how a changed world changes its inhabitants. It’s about class and violence and dignity and love. It’s about twenty-four doomed souls, each with their own story, trying to find a reason to Stay Alive. It’s about resources and strategy and survival. It’s about faith and art and misery. And in Episode #3, a cow shits out a grenade and explodes.”


    Crossed WYWH

    All embloggenation, retwooping, untwarping and similar public shillbaggery greatly appreciated.

    YAY I was starting to think it was all a hallucination and Whitechapel was just a place to talk nerdy creative people with nothing better to do. Ach, well it's still that, I suppose. But soon with web comic thatlooksupercoolImightadd!

    every page in the hard-copy collections will have appeared in their online form as two separate landscape-orientation screens – so no scrolling up and down. That’ll mean readers will effectively be getting Twelve! Free! Pages! every week rather than six. I’m using what I call “text blocks” – something I played with very successfully when I wrote Simping Detective for 2000AD – to incorporate chunks of textual narrative without shitting-up the visual flow. If comics are done right, you can “show” and “tell” different things at the same time. Equally, the narrative mechanism of the Diary means that episodes are often self-contained – “a day-in-the-life-of” – which should mitigate the other perennial fear of long-form episodic comics: readers’ attention spans are stretched over such long periods it’s tough to maintain fiddly plots. This way most weeks is a new story – a new self-contained vignette in the lives of the characters – which build over time into a grander arc.


    That sounds really interesting, very different to Freakangels, or other webcomics I've read. Fascinated to see how it turns out.

    Bloody Hell! I haven't logged on to these forums in forever. But I just wanted to log on and say good job to Si and crew. I really enjoyed the opening shot, and it makes a great companion to Ennis and Burrows' return on the print series. The protagonist and his band of friends seem very engaging, which is essential in any post-apocalyptic horror. I'm looking forward to seeing you put them through the grinder :)

    Definitely going to be reading every single week.
