Hello everyone! Just wanted to give you a status of what’s been going on with FLYING GLORY AND THE HOUNDS OF GLORY. We’ve been on the same web site structure since we launched and for various reasons are now making the move to WordPress. Due to the large number of issues we’ve finished, we’ve decided to go with completed PDFs of every issue versus a page by page webcomic WordPress theme because that just didn’t seem to be manageable in our experiments. Going this route means we will have to roll out all of THE GIFT at once instead of page by page, and still have to decide how this affects any future installments.
One thing we did discover while setting up to do this was a Graphic Novel of Issues 1 through 4 that we tried to pitch around a number of years back when the market was more open for this. For that project, we actually took the opportunity to make several additional pages that better fleshed out some character backgrounds and provided additional foreshadowing to where the stories took us (sometimes they went places we didn’t initially anticipate). We’ve made the decision that when the new site opens, we will launch with issues 1 through 4 back to being black and white but with the added pages included. Right now, Kevin is going through the original (and much older) Photoshop files to do new layout on the text and restore some art that has corrupted, plus additional cleanup as warranted.
Needing to launch this project has also stalled the prose novella MASQUERADE indefinitely as well, as it would take time from this project. We apologize for these delays but hope in the long run everyone will benefit with a better quality comic experience and prose novella.
We hope to unveil this for you by the year’s end, if not sooner. For now, to give you a taste of some of the added content, please see the below new page from Issue 1.
