So this is the end of Volume 1 of 13 Seconds
August 27th, 2006
It seems fitting that 13 years after I first penned 13 Seconds, I am ending it. Well, I don't know that ending is the right word. It's certainly going to sleep for a while. With the end of this volume, volume 1, I intend to take an indefinite break from this particular set of characters and move on to some other comic ideas that I have had as well as some other collaborative projects.
What other projects, you might ask? Well, I do hope to continue working on Gossamer Commons. I do not, however, have any control over that comic's current hiatus. The project I'm most excited about is a comic that comes from the minds of two very talented writers, David Milloway and Matthew Wood.
As I've mentioned before, Milloway and Wood currently write a comic called The Dada Detective that I enjoy quite a bit. They've asked me to breath visual life into a project called "Unreal City Tales" and this comic has a lot of depth and humour and intrigue.
So when will you see more comics from me? Soon, I hope. As I'm no longer working on 13 Seconds, I am free to work on any of the three other projects I have going right now but Unreal City is the current number one priority.
Special Note: I've received requests to make prints of last week's comic. I am prepared to make a batch of prints of that particular comic, in full colour and on card-stock. The print will be suitable for framing in an 8x10 frame and will come signed by myself (if you so desire it.) The price is yet to be determined but I'm really only looking to make this deal pay for itself, so the price range will be between $15 and $20 (Canadian) which would include shipping. Email me: 13seconds at gmail dot com if you are interested in having a print of this strip.
