Sherbet: Soulon February 28th, 2012
OK, we’re clearly not making regular deadlines anymore. Sorry!
The problem is that a lot of these comics are getting longer.
When we first started this website all of our comics averaged out to about two pages and we rarely ever broke the three page limit. Lately, even though I try to keep the page count down, my own scripts have mostly been between four and nine pages long. It’s a tall order for an artist who doesn’t do this full time, but we’re all spending more time on every stage of these strips, because we care about the quality of our work.
So again, I’m really sorry for the delays, but we hope comics like this strange little Ghost story will make up for it. Josh Mathus and I worked very hard to make it and we’re both proud of the results, so if you like it, please share it!
I’m currently looking around for more regular talent to help out around here. I mainly need artists right now, but writers are always welcome. If you or anyone you know would like to try out, please email email@example.com and title the email ‘I AM A TALENTED EARTHLING’.
We hope you’ll keep an eye on us and keep reading, because we’ll be back with more as soon as possible!
P.S: I’d also like to make a note about Sherbet’s use of the ‘R’ word in that strip. I realize that it’s a slur, one that offends and devalues people. I no longer use it personally, but she would. She is after all, a cruel and offensive person who doesn’t pull her punches. I considered other alternatives to the word, but they felt like betrayals to the essence of who she is and what this comic is about. Sherbet is an uncensored, adult comic about nasty things, with some nasty people in it who say and do more nasty things. That said, I am truly sorry if it does offend you – Sherbet’s opinions are not my own and her usage of that word just felt real and natural to her character.
