The Banished News!

Jan. 28th, 2008

01:01 am - New LJ account

If you have friended this LJ for Banished! updates, prepare to replace it with a different one.

When I originally created this account, it was for not only me to write up messages about the comic, but the artists as well. It turns out I'm the only one who ever used it, which isn't bad! I'd rather replace this blog with one that can be used by ALL my comics, however (if I'm going to be the only one typing in it).

So, I present to you http://ryanmakescomics.livejournal.com/

That LJ account will chronicle the Banished updates, along with news about my other comics. :)

This banished_comic account will soon be barren and defunct, so don't expect any more updates from here anytime soon...if ever.

02:57 pm - Banished! Continues!

Progress has been made in the continuation of our beloved Banished! comics!
Strip making in the form of drawing and script writing begins anew with the not definite, but pretty confident we can achieve it date of Jan. 28, 2008.

Visit us again that Monday and a new strip will very much probably (yes) should be available. :)

06:48 pm - Boo! Hiatus!

I dunno' what it is about this time of year, but the strip finds itself grinding to a halt again. Brandon and Megan are up to their nostrils in extra work, with a looming deadline. That means no time for Banished! right now. :(

The thing is, Brandon, Megan and myself are all eager to return to Banished!, so the comic isn't dead. Here's what my options are:

1) Much like last year, I'll put Banished! on hold until near the end of January. Then it will continue where we left off with Brandon and Megan producing more material.

2) Find a guest illustrator who will continue with the comics until Brandon and Megan are available again.

We'll see what happens. Pop back in maybe mid December to see what the ultimate outcome is. :)

12:56 am - New Thursday strip

I talked to Brandon about the comic delays and he explained that despite the RL interferences and new computer he's getting built, he's still gung-ho about making strips. It's just a matter of free time available (have I mentioned he's working on another project too? Yes! I have!).

Good news is that for the long run, Brandon is more than happy to keep working on Banished!

Bad news is that updates may be sporadic, depending on external interferences.

Blah blah blah! Enough talk. Go read the strip!

I've been leaving out the sound effects lettering, because I'd rather do that after the comics are colored. I honestly don't know what Megan is up to these days, except that she's also working on another project...

12:19 am - Delayed

Brandon's working on the next strip, as I type. It's just that he's also got his other art project to occupy his time too.
We may have to go to an "update when we're able to" schedule, instead of a strict Tuesday/Thursday routine. I'll keep ya' informed when the new strip arrives.
