I guess every group needs a rules lawyer.
Hey, Daxters. Dax PDFs are now available at Gumroad! Help support us here at Dax Comics by swinging by and downloading a PDF. My other comic, Nightmaiden, is available as are all 3 issues of Dax. That’s right! Dax #3 – Questing is available for purchase, so you don’t have to wait to see what happens!
Well, this concludes our second chapter here at Dax. Now, I have some good news, then some bad news, then some more good news. To start with, chapter 3 is completely finished. That’s the first part of the good news. The bad news is that we won’t begin running it until 1/6/14. Being generally busy fellows, we want to be sure to allow enough of a buffer to continue bringing new Dax chapters to you in a timely manner. As such, we’ll likely always have a small break between chapters. This assures that you get more comics and we don’t get too stressed worrying about deadlines. But, hey, it’s only a little over a month, so that’s not too bad, right?
“Hey, what about the other good news?!” Is what you probably were just saying to yourself. I haven’t forgotten. We’re not going to leave you high and dry during this chapter break. We’ll be back on Monday 11/25 with your first preview of chapter 3. Following that, on every Monday, we’ll have a little something for you. We have some old Dax one-offs that no longer fit into the main storyline. Think of them as outtakes. Or what-ifs. Perhaps just things that happened off panel. Whatever you what to call them, they’ll be there for you.
So, we’ll be back soon. For now please enjoy our light holiday schedule. Also, we’re hard at work on chapter 4, so you can look forward to a lot more to come. As always, thanks for reading!
Along with a few friends of mine, I am participating in the Comic Creators for Freedom donation drive to raise money for Love146. Love146 is an organization that works toward the abolition of child sex slavery and exploitation through Prevention and Aftercare programs.
Many artists are working on a single Wallpaper that can be purchased for a donation. This year’s theme is Awkward School Picture . And who better for me offer up his picture than D’Artagnan Archimedes Xanthopoulos … better known as the feared Space Merc, Dax! High school was hard on all of us.
There will be more updates once the Donation Drive is in full swing the first week of December.
My good friend, Charles Dowd, is 10 days into his Kickstarter to get his tough girl webcomic Lilith Dark and the Beastie Tree published as a graphic novel. The guy got his funding in the first week and he’s pushing for his stretch goals! The first stretch goal has already been met – every backer who bought a copy of the book will receive a Lilith Dark bookmark designed by me. So that’s cool, I mean what more do you want? Oh well, as soon as he hits $8000 (which at the time of this writing was just a few hundred from happening) the book goes color! Want some more? The $10,000 stretch goal is 3 (yes 3) exclusive Lilith Dark prints drawn by me and the other Zazz guys, John MacLeod of SpaceKid and Joel Poirier of Stripped Comics, to every print book order!
Not sure if this is your thing? You can read the first few chapters here: Lilith Dark
Jess went ahead and informed me that I should get around to making one of these bloggy bit things. I then realized that it had been quite some time since I’d actually gotten around to doing so. So…. what have I been up to?
Well, my wife is having a baby in about a month. That’s keeping me pretty busy. Lots to do with getting ready for the new little guy. Oh, it’s a boy by the way. No, he won’t be named D’Artagnan.
What else is worth talking about? Well, I recently read the Count of Monte Cristo. Yes, for the first time ever. Yes, I also know I should have read it years ago. Sometimes other books get in the way… you a bit…. or years on end…. Anyway, read the book got to about page 450/472 and found that some events had occurred off screen which seemed of some import. Flipping back I found that I hadn’t skipped a chapter. These important things were indeed just missing from the book. A quick google search led me to find that my copy was actually an abridged copy. Nowhere was this stated on the book or jacket. So instead of having a good 1200 or so pages I had just shy of 500. I wondered why the book seemed to close over a lot of early details. Oh well, guess I’ll be reading The Count again. It’ll just take a little longer next time.
I’m still brewing beer. I’ve gotten around to building a Keezer. That’s a freezer converted for the purpose of serving beer. That’s way nicer than bottling. We’ve got a really nice Oktoberfest coming soon. Also, a big brew with a pound of hops. I could ramble more about brewing, but if you don’t care, it would probably be pretty boring for you
Shadowrun Returns. That was short. Damn was it fun though!
Gone Home: surprising and unexpected!
Europa Universalis IV…. after playing through all the tutorial bits and watching a bunch of videos on youtube, I decided to dive into the main game. I promptly realized I have no idea how to play said game. I thought it was just going to be a slightly deeper Civilization. Boy, was I wrong.
That seems to be most of what is worth reporting as of late. Hawaii is pretty hot and the traffic sucks nearly all the time. Second worst in the nation, woo! I did get to scuba for the first time recently and that was a pretty cool time.
Guess that’s it for me now. Until next time Jess nudges me to make some words….
