oh, how exciting!  

So I sent the edited script to Leah yesterday to have a look over, and she said “Good job, if you can find an artist who can handle the period artwork you’ll be golden” so I sent her the character sketches and she was like OH YOU’LL BE FIIIIIIIIINE, which was wonderful.

I also sent the script to Val, who said, within minutes, “Okay, I read the script. You’ve got me. I loved it. Still lots to explain, but I want to know what happens next!” So that’s terrific and he’s already working on page layouts. *hops delightedly*!

Oh, and he said “so how come only 8 pages?”, the answer to which is I just cannot bear to ask an artist to do 22 pages at once for absolutely no guarantee of payment. In a really ideal world what we’ll do here is post the 8 page story and a paypal button, and maybe make at least a little bit of money to spread around to the team, thereby justifying doing another 8 page story, and then a third, for a 24 page story that will have both 8-page mini-arcs and an overall 24 page arc.

From there, I don’t know. Patreon? Kickstarter? Comixology, Image, Dynamite–somebody or something, but that’s down the road a ways. Right now–well, right now I’ve got to get those Chance pages in place for Jason to recolor. :)

Anyway, I’m pretty happy and excited right now, as I haven’t done anything like this in years and it’s great fun to be involved in this kind of collaborative process. Yay!

Oh yay, that is good!
I don't know on the funding front, I'm afraid. Page by page might be Patreon, but a whole arc is more Kickstarter-y to me.

Collaboration is awesome. It feels so good to have all that shared creative energy in a product. Congrats. I've had friends have really good luck with Kickstarter. Wishing you all the best!
