Just like the pros…
Delays plague the professional comics industry. Series planned for months stretch into years. Monthly issues became an issue every 3-4 months. Some titles debuted years ago, are still awaiting the next issue in the series.
Recently Gui and I met with artist extraordinaire Vince Sunico. And I’m proud to say that the pencils for Page 1 of Issue 1 of the QWIXOTIC Webcomic are complete. It took a while to process for me, that the images on the page were what we had written months ago. The panel to panel descriptions, shots, angles, transitions… all brought to life from our texts, to images from by Vince. Makes you appreciate the process. The pencils will be on the blog shortly.
During that meet, the three of us also had to re-assess our situation and the way we had approached the release and premiere. Given the delays, the QWIXOTIC Webcomic Series will now debut in early 2012. Now this is not another delay for the sake of delay. Things are still progressing with QWIXOTIC at break-neck speed, however, for everyone to get the full effect of QWIXOTIC, it’s best for a proper debut, not a shoddy one.
We’ve been super anxious to get this out to everyone and have our 4+ year creation come to fruition. However, reluctantly, we decided that our eagerness shouldn’t take priority over the quality of the release. A proper site, proper marketing, etc all play a huge part in the success of QWIXOTIC, or any creative venture to be fair. In the next coming weeks and months, there will be a lot of updates on the Blog. Marketing prints, logo, storyboards, pencils, and other awesome nonsense that only we can provide. Along with it, there should be some QWIXOTIC presence in the Cons and events going on through out the GTA in the next few months.
If delays are part of the professional comics industry, then QWIXOTIC is well on it’s way to being a very professionally created comic series… we hope.
