posts per page
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.
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.
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.
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!
Welcome to November!
Back On Track
Updates are back on schedule. Thanks for putting up with the delays.
Hi everyone! Last week the Nova Chronicles achieved a major milestone...our very first piece of fan art! This wicked pic is courtesy of the lovely Annie VanderMeer of I'm Blue, one of the first sites to link to us. Many thanks to her for a fine piece of work!
Ironing out some snags in the system.
I apologize for the less than consistent updates this week. Page 1.25 will be posted this evening (Wednesday the 18th) and a return to the regular updating on friday with The Vindicator's daring escape from the Cat's Eye. Monday will kick off the next scenario scene.
New Update Schedule: MWF
Welcome to week six. As of this week, The Nova Chronicles has undergone a change to its update schedule. Rather than updating 2-4 pages on Monday, we will now be posting 1-2 new pages each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For now, this can be considered a trial run for the new schedule. Thanks to all those who dropped me a line last week expressing their opinion in this matter. See you on Wednesday.
Update Changes - Calling for Feedback
Currently the Nova Chronicles updates new pages once a week on Mondays. I am contemplating making a change to this schedule and need some feedback. I want to know what would be a preferred method of updating for those who return each week for more: Should the NC stay as is, updated with two to four new pages every Monday? Or would you prefer one new page every Mon. Wed. and Fri.? Drop me a line at email@example.com and let me know. Just put "Once a Week" or "MWF" as the subject of your email, no further message is required. Enough response one way or the other will result in a change so let me know. The readers make this comic successful and I want it to be available to them in the best way possible
Week Four: Update on Tuesday
Just letting everyone know that this week's update will be posted tomorrow. Just smoothing out some snags... We're still new at this :). In the meantime, if this is your first time visiting the Nova Chronicles, I hope you'll check out the story so far in the Archive. See you tomorrow. Have a great week.
Today marks the third installment of the Nova Chronicles, we're on a roll! I hope everyone is having fun with the comic, it's going to be even more so in the future. Remember: Your thoughts and suggestions are always welcome. You can use the forum or contact us direct via e-mail... Me for comic related matters and Scott for concerns involving the NC website itself. See you next week for the conclusion of the Vindicator's bout with Gyro! Of course, out of the pot and into the fire.
Here we are, in the second week of the Nova Chronicles. For those of you taking your first look, Welcome. For those of you returning from last week, Welcome back. And thanks to all those who have helped to get the word out. I appreciate it! I hope you continue to check back for updates and invite you to take advantage of the forum to sound off on the NC. Your comments and suggestions can help make it even better.
Due to overwhelming popular demand (okay, two comments), there now exist Previous and Next links at the top of each page in addition to way down at the bottom. Let it never be said we don't know a good idea when we hear it. :) Click here to see them in action, and use them wisely.
FYI: The Nova Chronicles will be updated with new pages every MONDAY and the current pages will be posted for the entire week. After that the old pages can be found and read in the Archive section. Hope to see you all each week.
Welcome to The Nova Chronicles
Welcome. Thanks for checking out the Nova Chronicles. Launched July 22nd, 2002, this is going to be a lot of fun for both of us. The Nova Chronicles is a fresh look at the classic, melodramatic comic book themes of the past, but all done with a modern look and attitude. Each week we will be updating the site with several new pages allowing the adventure to unfold.
