…maybe not so strange…
The Trying to Build My Own Thing thing was a miserable failure. I’m still looking into getting my own place to host, but for right now, Webcomics Nation is the place to be. I own the domain I was trying to set up and can use it still, but I need to do more research.
Murder U updates will come, but most likely after the Olympics.
Thanks, and please stay tuned for updates.
…more to come…
I just can’t get the fucking think to do what I want it too or need it too!!! I’m gonna sit this weekend to see if I can’t get it even a little ready since I feel like I haven’t drawn in ages. I’d like to get it even close to what I need or even just workimg where you can read the comic, then tweak it as I go so atleast Murder U is out there for people to read.
Slow going since I’m really very shitty with computers and what not.
…yes I’m pooping.
I’ve been playing around with it but haven’t got the hang of it yet, trying to use wordpress.
Here’s hoping I get it soon.
I think the problem with the 2011 Thing was that the film makers didn’t go hard core enough with the visceral disgusting nature of the creatures like John did.
In order to do John justice they would have had to put their careers on the line with how offensive the disturbing and disgusting nature the creature should be, and they just had NO intention of doing that.
Remember, John Carpenter was the most hated man in Hollywood after he made The Thing and had to make Starman to pay a comeuppance to Hollywood and the movie going public.
Worrying about where I’m going to build or host my webcomic Murder U. I’m hoping to have it done ASAP but I don’t knowwhen I can. I’d update at Webcomics Nation where it is now, hut Idon’t want to build anything there then suddenly shift to a new place.
All I can say for certain is Soon.
And I’m just FEINDING to get this story out there and this world established.
Not to mention not having spell check oncmy Galaxy Note.
I’m really nervous as to where and how to have MU hosted and so on, not being good with computers. Webcomics.com gave me alotmof confadence and a start looking into hosting, but I’m so bad with computers that I sort of can’t decide which would be the best choice for me.
I think I should bite itmand just choose something ASAP. Just to get going again. That way not only can I get the comic up, but soon I’d have enough art donemthat I could shop itmto potencial publishers to seemif I can make a few shekels that way, and break into the comic world.
…even though I don’t want to break into comics, just do MY thing MY way and make a living for ME off of MY characters and stories…

I’ve been profiled by the Chicago Reader! and Hank Green was kind enough to answer some questions for Janet Potter, as well as Claire from Brilliant Botany! I DID A PROFESSIONAL PHOTO SHOOT! and there’s a VIDEO INTERVIEW TOO
and I said “shit” during the interview :o oops
Cool man! I LOVE the Brain Scoop!!
The electrician is at my place rewiring my place so that makes things…not as easy.
To be honest there is a very hugely gargantuan fear that I’m going to be mortified by my art again as usual once it’s up, but fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and that’s a path to the Dark Side.
I’ve just got to do it and get it done.
I just hope I can format the comic to be read the way it’s meant to be read. The turning of the pages was written into the story as part of the pacing and story reveals and so on. I’d love to have a pop-up window for the comic to be read in above the actual site so it can be moved around as well as minimized when needed. Plus it would allow me to make the most of the Page a Week updates to have the reader feel like they’ve actually read something more satisfying than just 1 page. I could break the page up and have it be read line for line like it was written and designed to be read.
All of these are questions and things I’ll have to see about while I’m looking into a new home for Murder U. Webcomics Nation was nice to have host but it’s a pain in the poop shoot to use, and when it went down, well…ain’t nobody got time for that.
Like I said, soon.
I’m currently researching options for hosting and what not, with piles of aide from a great site called webcomics.com run by a fella named Brad Guigar; please check his action as he’s a great cartoonist and artist. (Links to come tonight since I’m on my way to the day job.)
Anywhooss, I’m hoping to find a new home for Murder U ASAP but don’t want to rush into anything.
Here’s hoping everything works out well and fast.
These first 7 pages will be a teaser for the main story instead of a neat little intro.
