Time for chapter two!
The change is a little jarring, I think, but it’ll ultimately make sense. (Because that’s what I’m always shooting for–barely cogent!) Christ Rusche lamented that I did not have a panel one joke about the mean streets, and I regret it a little, but ultimately, these I think the Ramen Empire characters would take their movie a little too seriously for a more overt joke like that.
The funny-ha-ha of this next section will have to restrict itself to my being in drag with an absurd red wig.
I’m loving writing this. Every time I think about one of the characters, I think of something *awesome* I can do with them. And I’m getting to make all these really, tiny connections that I got trained to like in college. It makes me wish I had a more active comment section, because if I talked about these things, it’d look conceited, you know? But I love loving my own comic again. It’s a good feeling.
Also, have some first person pronouns. They’re on the house.
Spot the continuity errors and you win a prize! (They’re fairly small, I think, and the sort of thing you’d see go wrong in a movie. Maybe. That was the intent, anyway.)
I added this before, but it got deleted… or something? I strongly suspect I added it to some wrong thread, because of sleepiness. It’s been up on Facebook for a while–sorry about the wait!
You’re not going insane; I swapped the image out. The old one was a bit too small on the font size, and I’m just now getting time to fix it. =)
You know what you want to do? You want to help support Ramen Empre. You know the best possible way to do that? Pick up our new CMYK T-Shirt. There’s a limited window to get the shirts, and we’re not sure if we’ll ever sell them again.
Super sorry for the late update. We had a metric fuckton of commissions fall on our heads at the same time as we agreed to take on a week of Sho–a project for a friend. In retrospect, I wish we’d taken a short hiatus after Afterglow ended, but we actually didn’t have that work at the time, so… 20/20 hindsight.
We’re going to change out the pencils for a real comic tomorrow sometime. In the meantime, I decided that it was better to show you guys a preview and let you know that we still had a pulse than to let an entire update cycle slip past. It also gives me a shot to show off Zach’s pencil work. It gets hidden pretty easily, but I think there’s something fascinating to seeing the bones of a comic. YMMV.
Also, hey! I’m a writer for The Contemptor now, so I now have a place to channel all of my Lewis Black-esque rage. ^_^
Got it finished. See you guys back next week at the regular Wed / Friday update schedule, promise!
