#114, and the 2009 Last Resort Preview!

Happy (almost) New Year! Here's something to make light conversation over while you're out at whatever party you've got planned.

Speaking of conversation, let's give you a taste of what the future of Last Resort in 2009 holds in store!

The First Volume of Last Resort?

We've hit over 100 pages of comic (not including any potential bonus material!) already, so odds are good once this current episode finishes, I'm calling it a book! Of course, this depends on more things than you'd think (For starters, actually finishing the episode within the next year), on top of the efforts it'll take to actually assemble the book, so it's not a done deal yet.

More Convention Work (Hopefully!)

Well, I managed to work a few conventions in 2008, but they were all fairly localized affairs... which may not change in 2009, but given the hit-and-miss nature of the earlier appearances, the more I get out there the better they're bound to get!

And hey, doing more official artwork for conventions like I did for PhreakNIC isn't out of the question either.

New LR Merchandise!

These're still in beta, but hey, that doesn't mean I can't show them off:
In case you've not seen them before, they're window sitters, designed for MaCoPiX (Good for Windows, Mac, and Linux!) -- More details will be available whenever they're actually available, but they're cute, tiny, unobtrusive, and the closest you'll get to seeing these characters come to life for a while, I imagine.

Finishing Up The Cast Profiles!

... Or at least getting all 16 players' profiles up there.

This isn't as big a list as the 2008 version, sure, but these are some solid steps to be taking in the new year regardless... and they're not easy ones either!

See you next time!

#113, and a Bonus Update On the Way!

Because we all know exposition is the best gift of all.

Don't worry, part 2 of this revelation is coming as a bonus update Wednesday (I've actually owed this one for a little while, but waited until I had my ducks back in a row...), so either check back then or make sure you're subscribed to either the blog feed or the comic feed. Either works.

And coming up soon along with that bonus update, since it'll be on New Year's Eve and all, will be my predictions for 2009. Most of the resolutions for 2008 happened, so if you've got any ideas for things I need to keep doing, need to change, or really just need to get freaking done, a comment in the blog (or some other way to get my ear) would be a good idea. I'll have some ideas regardless, but there's no reason NOT to ask...

Of note: Thanks to a few mishaps in pacing and buffer-handling, this is the first comic I've done since IsItFunnyToday hit the webcomics scene. So please, for the good of the comic, head on over there and give some feedback. I don't necessarily care if you vote it up or down, even; consider it an experiment on my part if nothing else.

After all, I'll try anything once, and that includes being funny.

See y'all next week!

This week's comic is up a little early (not that you mind).

Between finals, graduation, and other things (hooray DIY laptop repairs!), today has been a very busy day, and a pretty busy week too. And lots of things to continue to be busy about and with in the near future.

But for now... sleep. I'd say I've earned it.

See you next week!

#110, Plus Some Reminders

This year's "Golden Bladder 2008" award goes to...

For those just here for the weekly update, let's recap!
  • Last Resort's been featured in a magazine now! W00T! Seriously, it's the cover story. Check it out.
  • Those Badge Auctions are still going on until Tuesday, and spaces are still available. Worth note, I'll need to go into overdrive on pages once I've got my diploma, so if you're at all anxious for your badge, go bid on the dedicated auction.
As always, don't forget to go say something in the forums, and we'll see you next week!

Another Last Resort Interview... in an actual NEWSPAPER?!

Two months of keeping my mouth shut on this story is totally worth getting bragging rights on the cover.

The actual story (FUR-ther) only has a fraction of the interview I actually did for the paper, but I'm still thrilled to see it's finally gone to print. Go ahead and read the story for yourself; there's quite a few folks interviewed for this one, so you'll have to scroll down a bit to find my part.

In the meantime, I'm one step closer to a Wikipedia article. ;)

Just as a reminder for folks who haven't seen my earlier post or are just coming in from the paper, I still have auctions running for conbadge commissions through this week... the Dutch auction still has a few slots open, which means it's still quite possible to get your hands on some original work for downright cheap and not much effort.

And if you've come here after reading the article... leave a comment and say hi, will you?
