New SC Chapter to Feature Fan Comics and Art

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 22, 2014, 1:50 PM


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 :D

SC: Ch.55 - Circle City All-Stars (Fan Special) by simpleCOMICS
SC: Ch.55 - Circle City All-Stars (Fan Special)
This next chapter is a special one. It consists entirely of fan-made comics and art made from 2007-2014. I picked out ten particular ones to talk about and have a small commentary on, because to some extent, they affected the main SIMPLE COMPLICATIONS comic series. I will include links to the originals and I encourage you to add the originals to your favorites and not the ones I'm posting here.

(Please note that I had to edit them in order to fit them in the standard SC comic dimensions.)

The artwork featured on this title card was by :iconohthatsean: and :iconpizza-supper:.  

ohTHATsean is one of my oldest friends and is actually the person who introduced me to deviantart in 2006 (I had a different account before 2007). He's been a big supporter of SC and has regularly given honest feedback, positive and negative. He even wrote a Christmas chapter for me and an extended special for the original "Classic" comic series that was actually the very first comic drawn by someone else that I included in the canon. (It does not appear in this chapter, because it's already an official page.)

pizza-supper is a reader I met after I rebooted the series in 2011. He's been one of the most enthusiastic readers I've had, often making me feel excited about working on the comics simply because he was excited to read more of them. He is the creator of Wallace the Hot Dog Guy, and because he told me Marvin was his favorite character I wanted to thank him for his support by pairing up Wallace with Marvin selling hot dogs and cookies, something the characters have been doing for two years now.

Original Art:
WIFL Andy vs Magnus.. by ohTHATsean
(Currently, pizza-supper has much of his gallery in storage, so I am unable to provide a link to the original, but I think you should visit him regardless :))

SC915 - Stereotype, Hans, and Cyra by simpleCOMICS
SC915 - Stereotype, Hans, and Cyra
Happy (early) Halloween, guys! :pumpkin:

Since he was created by a reader I honestly felt kinda bad for killing off Cyra two years ago in OPERATION: YELLOW, but it was such a fun story that I don't really regret it that much. Think of this resurrection as a last-minute "Thanks for understanding, Truecynder." (Who was super-cool about it, btw)

Stereotype was created by :iconwarriorcheetah:
Hans and Cyra were created by :icontruecynder:

Say, I finally watched The Terminator and Judgement Day. Are you interested in knowing what I though about them?

Okay. THEY WERE AWESOME! :D

All in all, I definitely preferred the second one, though. It just seemed a lot cooler. The first one was great too. I do think it was kind of sad that Arnold had to die at the end of Judgement Day, though.

Sounds like we agree on them :D

T2 is one of my all-time favorite childhood movies and I'm glad it still holds up for first-time viewing twenty-three years later ^^

I wonder how my character might respond to the weresquare. :) In a theoretical manner,  that is.

That character isn't actually in this arc, but I do have her planned for an 2015 chapter. But don't you worry, she will be particularly memorable when that chapter arrives. (Hint: it's a chapter that involves Andy and other blue circles)
