sort of important guys
if you have a hand drawn comic tag it with "hand drawn" so other people can find it
I love hand drawn comics
Artwork II meets Artwork III! Where will the madness end?
If you're reading this, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read my first steps into the vast and intimidating sea that is the comics subforum. I had an old studio comic using my own custom sprites in the works years ago but never got around to posting it. I lost the files when we bought a new computer. (It's just as well. It was pretty lame and didn't have a good concept to back it in the first place.)
I have a soft spot for comics- I've lurked this forum for ages but never worked up the courage to start my own series. Now, five years later, I'm proud to reveal my work, born of a thousand false starts and notebooks full of tattered artwork, to the BZPower public. Please enjoy.

A two page spread like I've been doing takes around 2-3 days of storyboards, sketching, re-sketching, erasing, editing, adding dialogue, compiling and editing again, so updates will come as I have the time. If I'm lucky I'll be able to update on Fridays or Saturdays every week. (Most of my free time comes after 10 PM so I've been staying up past 1 for the past several days. My motivation will probably lapse after a while so I'll assume weekend updates just to be safe.)

Not accepting additional characters at this time. Keep checking back if you're interested!
Copypasta'd from update 3-17-2012: I am accepting guest stars. If you're interested, shoot me a PM with some simple information, as outlined below. Keep in mind that the process of incorporating you may take some time, as I do have a rough storyline to follow. You will be introduced and most likely play an important role, but It will take some thought and effort on my part. Thanks! Member Name (or alias to be used):

Role/Primary Occupation on BZPower:
This is a pencil-drawn comic based (loosely) on my experience as an employee in a banner shop in Artwork II several year ago. It was run by a member of the same name and we had three workers, one of whom decided to quit the site a couple years ago. For this reason, I'm using all characters in a fictitious manner, and their personalities may not reflect their corresponding members. Just keep that in mind and don't assume anything about the actual members until you actually talk to them. Thanks.
Thanks to Ziko for fixing the BZPower Comics Wiki Entry on my comic. I wrote it myself, I just can't format the page to wiki standards to save my life. I was all "lame HTML coding!" and he's all "no, you didn't read the guidelines!' So yeah. Kudos to him for cleaning up my mess.
Thanks for reading!
