Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run page 46 is up, and it brings you yet more delightful culinary adventures:
What exciting facts shall we learn in next week’s installment, I wonder? Hum hum!
Speaking of future pages, I’ve got chapter 5 thumbnailed, and am currently working on thumbs for chapter 6. I decided to go ahead and rough out Ch6 before drawing ch5 because I need it to percolate for a bit. See if it hangs together the way it’s supposed to.
Once those thumbnails are done, I’ll circle back and draw Ch5. And THEN. Once THAT’S done, I’ll put together a PDF of the first 5 chapters, for they comprise Part One. Ch6 will kick off Part Two.
I’ve been debating how to package the story for consumption in other media besides online. I don’t want to make people buy the same thing in multiple formats, so I think what I’m going to do is stick with the ch1-2 minicomic for displaying at shows; digital editions of each Part, which will be pay-what-you-can; and then a single offset print volume for the whole book once it’s done. Which will be a couple of years yet.
ANYHOW. That’s my current thinking. I’m hoping to have the digital edition of Part One available sometime in February. If I were REALLY with it, I’d have it in time for the comic’s first birthday on Jan 14. But I’m not, so I won’t. Shrug!
But yes, keep an eyeball out for VoSS 1 in the new year.
