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.

Fin!

Welcome to monday the 18th and another week of the Chronicles. Today's page will be up tonight, took me a little while to finish it up due to the fact that I'm working out how to finish the first chapter. The whole thing is written ahead of time but it is not always planned ahead how the story will advance page by page. Looks like tonight's installment will be the last of Chapter One: Prologue.

Wed. the 20th we will begin Chapter Two: Genesis. For those of you who are hoping for some insight into how Alex wound up in this whole mess in the first place, you won't be in the dark for much longer. See you later tonight.

Overload!

Today's page will be uploaded this evening as I had to stay at work late last night and as a result will have to finish the next page this afternoon.

Chapter 1 is almost complete. Can't wait for number 2 as several questions will finally be answered. Hope you're having fun. See you tonight.

A few words with a master

I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Turner yesterday evening. For those of you not familiar with him or his work, he is a very distinguished comic artist over at Image Comics and his work is a tremendous influence on my own. He's a really great, down-to-earth guy, and he allowed me to pick his brain for a while... things I hope to use to make the Nova Chronicles even better. If you're a fan of this feature, or comic books in general, do yourself a favor and check his work out. Thanks Mike.

A Second Wind

All right, I know! The update schedule has been less than impressive as of late. It seems to be the result of just too much going on at one time. So, with that in mind, I am taking the needed steps to assure that the comic is given the proper amount of time needed each week to keep updates on time. I plan on going somewhere big with the Nova Chronicles and I feel it's about time I showed it. I cannot promise that there won't be future snags for time to time but I will tell you that it will be a vast improvemnet over what it's been.

Also, a million thanks to all of those who have taken the time and care to write me a little note telling me how you have enjoyed the Nova Chronicles. These last couple of weeks have been rough at times and you might not know how flattered I have been by your kind words and I would like to address this now by making sure you know each one is read and appreciated.

I'm not sure how much attention people give to this newsbox. I'm hoping quiet a number of you. It is becoming more of a valuable tool to me to keep in touch with my readers. Expect far more updates posted here in the future as the new commitment schedule to the Chronicles kicks things into overdrive.

Well that's all for now. Keep those letters coming, I want to hear more feedback and PLEASE, help the NC out by voting for it on the webcomic lists by clicking on the little colored boxes to the left. You might not realize how much this helps me out.

Take Care. -Tyler

A moment for artistic merit.

For those of you wondering why there is no new page today, I needed a bit longer for a slight re-write of the next page or two. I just wasn't satisfied with the way the stand-off between Bailee, Alex and the Police was headed. I've got a much better solution and am in the process of bringing it to pencil-and-paper life as I write this. I should have it up around midnight or at the latest tomorrow morning. If you're disappointed by another delay just remember that it's all for the greater good of providing you, the reader, with the finest comic I can. And remember, all of you aspiring artists out there: Good writing skills are not just for use in your comic, but also in explaining the lack thereof :). See you in a few hours and thanks!
