State of the comic, and novelisation

Progress on Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan is slow as ever. A few more pages from the Invasion storyline are inching their way towards completion. Invasion will almost certainly end before Feral does, even though Invasion is later than Feral in the overall continuity.

At this rate, it’ll take me years to get around to doing the other storyline that I need to fill up the overall continuity. There’s a long story originally from 1996/1997 missing from the archives. I hate how that one turned out but have been meaning for the past few years to fill the gap with a re-written, re-drawn version of that story. Well, it seems like drawing is out of the question, but Aggie actually handed me the solution to this problem the other day when she started talking about her project for National Novel Writing Month which is a sequel to the comic American Gothic Daily. For me to write the new version of King Groy as a 50,000-word novel would be good writing practice and a good way to fulfill a years-old commitment that has always been at the back of my mind.

My Nanowrimo profile is here here and I’ll try to post word count updates daily. Updates of the first draft will appear on my DeviantArt account before they’ll appear on the ROCR website… so I can polish them up if they suck.

Aggie’s new novel is on her DeviantArt account. It’s rough, as mine will be, but that’s what you get when you just push out the words and post your first draft.
