An end to some things
August 20th, 2006
13 seconds has been a labour of love for me for many years now. It's had a dominant position in my creative endeavors since my first year in university (and that's a ways behind me now) and it has aided me in learning all sorts of good practices for cartooning and comic-making. What I want to say here is that with the end of this story arc, I plan to close the book on Volume 1 of the 13 Seconds story.
This arc is not over yet but it is close and while I have no plans to definitively stop making 13 Seconds comics I do plan on introducing a break in between Volume 1 and Volume 2.
What's all this talk about Volumes?
I have a very good idea where Volume 2 of 13 Seconds is going to go and it's going to be a far more cohesive story than what we've seen here in Volume 1. The fact is, I plan on working on a couple of other projects first before I begin writing and drawing and applying ink to the next volume of this story. I figure here is as good a place as any to mention what sorts of projects I will be working on in between Volumes 1 and 2 of 13 Seconds:
- Gossamer Commons with Eric Burns (which is presently in stasis but will resume at some point)
- A new project called Unreal City Tales with the very talented writing duo of David Milloway and Matthew Wood who currently write The Dada Detective.
- And an as-yet unnamed comic written and illustrated by me featuring a band of super-heroes whose images you've seen here already.
