Shirts and Such

Well, Thursday's page is a bit late in posting but it's up now. I won't bother with the details but can't stress enough the importance of frequent saving when working on a computer document. But you knew that already.

Demand for T-shirts has reached a very flattering level and I am working on getting the first designs done soon.
Thanks to those who are wanting to help support the Nova Chronicles this way. The shirts will be good for both promotion and covering costs towards hosting and art supplies.

Also the advertisment that was run for the NC over on MacHall last week has run its course and I am pleased that the number of readers on our site has continued to remain at a higher rate. My thanks go out again to those who found us from over there and have come back for more. You people make it all worth while. Don't forget to drop me a line if you like. I never turn down feedback. Take Care.

New Format

Wow! It's been a long time since I put down one of these newposts. I'd like to use my first break of silence to welcome those of you joining us this week for the first time after clicking over from MacHall. Hope you like what you see and stick around for the long run.

Also, what do those of you who have been with us for a while think about the new site layout? I feel it works a lot better by making navigation tools more accessible.

Also the issue of deadlines being missed. What was once the ultimate frustration of this site seems to be a thing of the past. I finally have the time I need to live a normal life away from the drawing table but keep fresh pages coming in at a regular speed. Please take notice of the Update Status bar as, in an effort to update as often as possible, I have done away with the regular Mon.-Wed.-Fri. system. Please note that update days should be reliable but times of day might flex a bit. The Status Bar should keep you informed.

Guess that's all for now. This next week promises to be really exciting as I am looking forward to getting in-depth with the back story of Alex's crime fighting origins. Take Care.

A slight layout shift...

Hello, intrepid Nova readers. You may notice a slightly different layout around here. We've moved the Site Menu to a more logical place near the Update notice, and used the space down below for some choice links to some of our favorite webcomics (as well as a couple of resources Tyler uses in creating the NC). I think this is a better look overall.

If you want to have another look at Tyler's special Christmas piece, it can be found right...here.

Happy Holidays!

Today has always been a day of personal reflection and rest for me so no new page at this time. Instead I hope everyone who came to the site today will spend those couple of minutes they would have used to read the comic to instead take a moment for a little peace of mind for themselves. I'll be putting up some new art sometime this evening and we'll get back into the story on Friday. Have a good night and enjoy the rest of the season. God Bless.

And the Angel said unto them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:10-11

Sometimes It's Just Out of Your Hands!

The lack of a new page today was due to a major problem with my internet service provider. The system has been edgy all week but the whole thing came to an end today and shut down. Around two this afternoon I gave up hope and went out to do my Christmas shopping. At least it wasn't me this time ;).

We're back up and running now so look for the new page to post tomorrow. Take Care.

Back on Track- Thanks for Waiting

Well, the school semester is winding down and the holidays are upon us. I should now have more than enough time to get the Nova Chronicles rolling again. Thanks so much to all the faithful readers that waited so long for me to get things done.

Finals, work and life's other little Catastrophes

Updates a little off this week? Yeah, I know. Between catching up at work after Thanksgiving and finishing up the semester at school, comic drawing time might be cut a little short for a few days. I will strive to get updates completed but might be a little off with them for a short bit. Thanks to the students and starving artists out there for their collective understanding ;)

Back at Home and Back on Track

Hi. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Today was supposed to be the next page in chapter 2, but I got a little set back during the holiday weekend and am now without a finished page for Sat. So expect the Chronicles to be back on regular schedule on Monday. I'll be using the rest of the weekend to help finish up some loose ends on the site with Scott.

Also, I hope you had a chance over the holiday to check in and catch the preview pics I had posted on Wed., Thurs., and Fri. If not, you will have another chance soon. I am going to use those pics again along side the new character bios that should be showing up this week as the story progresses.

Tinkering under the hood

If anyone tried to access the site early Saturday morning (11-30) and was greeted by a cryptic error message, I am the one to blame. I've been doing some work on the underlying code that drives The Nova Chronicles, and it required some adjustments after uploading before it worked properly. So, I apologize for any inconvenience.

The changes I've made should be transparent to you readers, so if you come across something that doesn't work anymore, please let me know! The only visible difference should be a "next" link that now connects the last page of a chapter to the first page of the next one, without having to go through the Archive. Thanks to Michael for that suggestion!

I still plan to construct a special section for non-story pages (such as Tyler's character previews). Really, I do. Honest!

What's on your mind?

Well, Chapter One is all finished. Time to move on to a new episode. Chapter two will introduce new characters, expand on those already in the mix and reveal new aspects of the overall story.

Now, with the start of the next installment, I'd like to hear from you. What did you like about the first episode? Who is your favorite character thus far? Who or what would you like to see more of? How did you first hear about the Nova Chronicles? T-shirts are being developed as are plans for a printed comic book version of the Chronicles. What are your interests in these items and do you have any ideas of what you'd like to see as far as designs? Also, anything you'd like added to the site itself? New features or perhaps some constructive criticism for making existing features even better.

You can send me your thoughts, suggestions and comments two different ways: E-mail me at tyler@novachronicles.com or leave some feedback in the Nova Forum. I check the forum several times a week.

Well, I've got to get back to work on the next page. Hope to hear from you soon. Take Care.
