Wow - I'm shocked to see that I haven't updated my DA page with anything about my webcomic BROKEN GODDESS ATHENA in a good long while... not since I posted page 6, in fact. That was about 3 months back!
So, I guess I'd better redress that. There's lots to report, assuming you haven't seen this stuff elsewhere.
Here's where things are at:
Yesterday, I posted the 18th page of the first chapter. So there's now a fair bit of the thing online and ready to read. You can find it here, on Wordpress:brokengoddessathena.wordpress.…
Alternatively, if you want a nice, easy reading experience, I recommend reading the comic on ComicRocket.com Here's the relevant link:www.comic-rocket.com/explore/b…
I've been getting some STELLAR feedback of late on the comic - it seems folks are really enjoying it. I can't begin to say how gratifying that is. However, there's still not quite the buzz around it that I'd like. I've enjoyed a few massive spikes in page views, as well as some praiseful comments from industry figures. But all of this is behind-the-scenes stuff, and as gratifying as it is, it doesn't go very far toward building an audience for the book, unfortunately. So, if you're enjoying what you've read so far, please, please, please do give the Facebook page a like, share updates there or direct folks to it. Leave a comment on the Wordpress page. Whatever your fuzzy little hearts desire. It is AMAZING what a positive effect this can have. There are folks who already give the comic their regular support, and it's very much appreciated.
Heres the good news: Things are going well enough that I have some cool developments to announce.
1. FULL COLOUR EDITION!
This is in the works, and the current plan is for individual chapters to be released via digital platforms such as Comixology. I'm also viewing this version of the comic as 'the final cut', so any rough edges that aren't smoothed out for the web pages will be fixed for that. There'll also be some juicy extra features. I'd say what they are, but there's still a way to go to finalise some of them.
Yeah. Really. No guff! Would I like to you? If you feel like sending in a letter, or even fan art, you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org - be sure to use the subject header LETTERS TO BGA. The plan is to take a month's hiatus between chapters, and letters will be displayed on the main site during that time. Any correspondence may appear in other editions of the comic as well. So if you DO write in, make sure it's with something you wouldn't mind your granny reading!
(What? My comicis VERY popular ith senior citizens, I'll have you know!)
And that's it, except to say that I started work on chapter two last week. There's a stonkeroo of a cover in the works, and I've got the magnifabulous Josh Burcham on board to colour it again. So the ball is definitely rolling... and you'll see another aspect of the Broken Goddess Athena universe in the first few pages - as well as some new characters!
So there it is - more HdE comic goodness than you can shake a stick at. Hope you''re all enjoying it!
