It dawned on me a few days ago that I've tried twice to get together a project/chapter titled CIRCLE CITY ALL-STARS featuring comics and art made by readers. I once tried it in 2009 and tried it again earlier this year. I was able to gather a few pages together each time. And since SIMPLE COMPLICATIONS officially begins its last lap in the next couple of weeks, I think now is the best time to gather them together and properly feature them as an official "all guest-comic" chapter. It collects ten fan-comics & fanart from 2007-2014 and will have a commentary about how they affected the actual SC series. This is not a contest
and I'm not asking for submissions
or anything. I already have the ten pages picked out and am currently writing the commentaries for each one.
I'm a little ahead of schedule on CURSE OF THE WERESQUARE, originally meaning to post the last page on Halloween day. Looks like at this rate I'll be posting it... uh, tomorrow. After that I will begin posting CIRCLE CITY ALL-STARS one page per day for ten days. After that, CIRCLES FOREVER will begin, which will be the remainder of 2014. I wrote it as much of as a final "ending" as possible (which takes the pressure of myself a little if I ultimately end up waiting a while to start it up again after this.) Also, because of the number of pages, CIRCLES FOREVER is likely to be posted two pages a day. I haven't quite decided how I'm doing that yet.
So, updated agenda:
Ch.54: CURSE OF THE WERESQUARE
(almost over) - 10 pages
Ch.55: CIRCLE CITY ALL-STARS
(comics and art created by fans) 10 pages
Ch.56-60: CIRCLES FOREVER
(Five-Act finale to the entire series)
It's going to be fun
