dear chance fans…  

…if you had a choice between a whole Chance-world origin story or an introduction to a new modern character in the Chance world, which would you prefer?

I actually have an artist lined up (possibly even two) so I’m trying to get ducks in a row for doing some kind of mini-stories for web release and maybe eventual Comixology release.

Speaking of which, I’ve just taken the first small step toward getting Chance prepared to submit to Comixology by getting my colorist to redo 3 or 4 pages where we messed up. If I was a really good person I would go through and edit the text so that it, er, wouldn’t suck, in the places that it does suck, but that would require either hiring a letterer or doing it myself, and I lack both skill and cash.

Plflffft. I wish I felt like there was a practical way to Kickstart Chance for print copies. I wish many things. Hrmph. :)

Origin, please! And I am delighted to hear about the artists.

Whichever story has you more excited.

Really, I don't have enough information to judge. You've sketched out the origin already, but if you think there's something worth telling in the details, I'm sure you're right. Likewise, my interest is Chance herself, but a new character could be very cool. Could be interesting in and of itself, could bring out something new in Chance...

I'd be thrilled to see either story. You know the stories a lot better than I do. Go with the one that grabs you. You've got great taste in stories, and the more excited you are by the story, the better you'll tell it.

*waves hands* I would love, love, love to continue the Chance-proper story. I in fact have the next issue written. The problem is that I *hate* to ask an artist to do 22 pages for free and since I've never made *any* money off the original comics, I really can't justify paying anybody to do it. So doing other little something seems like at least...*something...

Origin, but I'll settle for anything I can get. :)

(I mean, Trent. Totally Trent.)

I'd rather have a new character. I've read more than enough origin stories for this lifetime by now. :)

Why is it impractical to do a print run of a collected Chance, with a (large) stretch goal for another issue to be included? Do you lack the print-ready files? Or perhaps lack the time to run a Kickstarter?

Re: Chancestarter
Full color POD is prohibitively expensive and off-set printing for a Kickstarter is impractical when I have no storage space or distribution abilities to move it beyond a Kickstarter-only project.
