"The toys have died comics topic has staggerd, but what do the Bionicles Authors do now?" 

 

Before we begin, I'd like to thank Calvirik and Reznas for being the guys to get me back in to the comic biz. Especially Cal because, well, I'm going to to base a lot of the early comics off of his "style". It's not the most origional (nor the coolest) way to do things, but for now it'll keep me afloat. Let us begin:

 

Episode 001: The elephant skeletons in the room.

Episode 002: Job well done.

Episode 003: Alas!

 

Credits

Rahi Zaku for the RZ kit (and all the people who have contributed to it

 

Calvirik for any quotes and comic setup that I blatantly use that resemble his

 

Reznas for the comic help topic

Okay two things:

 

1). I had no idea what your character was referring to at first. 

 

2). It only makes slightly more sense after I barely noticed the blood stain on the box. 

 

I don't think you accentuated the blood reference enough for me to get the...joke I guess...

 

I know that was real hard to read through, but I think it will be something important to pay attention to in the future when in the producing process of comic making. Remember, you're goal is to help the readers understand what your going for. In this case, its that the main character (i'm assuming) has dead bodies in that box as payment. 

 

And now that I think about that, I don't think I'll be sleeping tonight. :wired:

Good to see you getting back into things, Ptol. I'm curious to see how this goes - the comics so far are interesting, and as usual filled with your amusingly morbid sense of humor. Here's to plenty more comics coming our way - Good luck!

...If you guys are considered dead authors, what make me and the any new comic artists? Living Authors? Semi-dead Authors? Dying Authors? I don't even know anymore.

 

But, anyways, this is good!

Anyway, besides the blatant copycat, Calvirick-style backgrounds, the comics are nice. Not much to say yet, but you seem to have your graphics worked out. The text was easy to read as well. Love the font! :D

Alas!

You thought the "Dead Authors" was just word play...
I apologize for the lack of shadows, I've been very tired the last two days so I guess I glossed over that part...hopefully it won't happen again though!

Of course this would happen.

 

So, I said I would resume this series, but then after making this I deleted the wrong folder on my flashdrive and lost a good chunk of my stuff, so I'll be resuming Helios! It was my favorite series, so I might as well. I may try to get this up again too.

This is an interesting series.

 

It deals with morbid things that someone else once.. tried to do. To a much more.. horrific extent.

 

Kind of funny a series called "Dead Authors" made me remember him. Not in the dead sense. The fact that he's gone for other reasons.

 

Anyway.

 

An interesting series. It's short, it's dark. I like dark story stuff. I find it a much more enjoyable thing compared to comedy and such.

 

Sorry to hear about your backgrounds though. I'd suggest you save all that stuff to two devices at least. Hey, I even have two usbs and a backup hard drive for all my stuff.

Hold on to your bio mechanical butts, this'll be a bit personal and kind of long.Gosh I have had a very...interesting...last few months. First I said I'd resume Helios. That obviously hasn't happened. A day or so after that statement I went through a breakup, and while it has turned out to be very good for me to no longer be in that relationship (as it was stifling me, I wasn't really me, I was just someone trying to make a very selfish and vain person happy in the end...oops. Remember kids, it's important to take care of your own personal growth. Don't give up everything because someone else wants you to devote all your energy to THEIR aspirations. And when that goes to far that can be considered emotional abuse. It sucked but I'm free and far stronger and happier now).
That knocked me down for a good week of your standard post breakup sads but soon enough my friends in theatre talked me in to auditioning and I got into three plays. Turns out I'm pretty good at acting. I also then had to write a short story, create a fairly large poetry portfolio, and then later illustrate the portfolio for my creative writing class. The past three months have just completely absorbed what vast quantities of free time I have been used to in the past as well as draining my creativity reserves. I love to make stories, and I love the sprite comic medium. However, with performances coming up at the end of this month and then auditions for the spring play, combined with my last semester of highschool and then graduation as well as now working at our towns community theatre on and off (and maybe even auditioning there)...it's more than I've ever done at once. And it is awesome. I really would love to either resume Dead Authors (because I like my odd sense of humor) or start the next chapter of Helios, but I have very little time and energy to expend on this. However, I will still try to add, well, anything to this topic. Most likely random comics in the Dead Author theme. Maybe Helios, although I also wish to actually write a story I've had in mind for a while. In the past I've occasionally alluded to having anxiety and depression at times, and while I don't have the problem I once had when I first joined this forum, I do still have occasional moments of, just not goodness. While my newest creative outlet is acting, comic making will always hold a special place in my heart and soul. It has been a very bumpy ride, but I've been egged along by a mix of friends and readers who stayed loyal even despite several bad runs and restarts, and what small gems I did provide. Art, in its many forms, particularly comics, short stories, poetry and acting have all been great helps in dealing with my issues.
I'd like to thank everyone who's ever read my stuff and especially those who took time to leave a remark or two (even more to those who offered advice). It's been a good time, but I can only make comics when I enjoy making them, otherwise it becomes a chore as soe many before me have said. I hope to still give you guys an occasional laugh or slight smile before September arrives (in which case I will be gone for two years for a church mission and then college after that). These could very well be the last few months that I have time to be on BZP. Here's to new years, new beginnings, and new stories.
-Much love and appreciation, Logan.

I've enjoyed working with several of you in the past (regardless of success) and any societies we may have formed (regardless of how long they lasted). I truly do not wish to give up comic making for good, ever if possible. So maybe a rainy day or two will pass and I'll think of something morbidly cute (is that even possible?) or humorous or what have you. I can no longer make claims of comic revitalizing because I risk burning out very very quickly and not being able to deliver. I don't want anyone to have very high expectations or hopes, but I don't want to move on with this great adventure we call life without popping in now and then to find out that everyone thinks I'm dead or something ridiculous like that. I've got some sprites still on a flashdrive as well as the same tim burtonesque style and dark humor. This toptic is just the culmination of my existence on the site, the product of my years of activity and procrastination. It's not going to truly die until the day I can truly no longer support it. If anyone has anything they'd like to see send me a message and I'll try to make it happen. I've still got some comic ideas written out too that I could use. It's just a matter of finding time and energy that I can afford to share with you guys. And again, you've all been great.

And yes malignus my name is also Logan. We are everywhere.

So many series die now. They take their last gasps of air and go to embrace The Great Pohuaki outside the forums.

 

I am sad to see this end, though everything does. It is un-avoidable.

 

I'd say you had a good run. I'm sorry I caught it so late though.

 

Everything ends. There's nothing wrong with that though. I do wish you the best of luck, friend. In everything you do on and off the computer.

 

You stay safe on your mission.

 

And like Terton and all my fellow comic makers: I hope you find something that truly makes you happy.

 

(May I suggest Hats?)
