Vacations, Collectives

Friday, December 29th, 2006

Sorry about the late comic today, Christmas set me back a bit. But the good news for me is that guest comics will start on January 1 while I take a little break from cartooning. Actually I’m not taking a break so much as working up a buffer and tweaking the website. But keep up cuz there’s some really great comics in this batch. I’m still not sure how long the break is going to last, but I do need more guest comics! So any artists interested please get in touch!

In other news I’ve recently joined the political webcomic collective Spinzone Comics. One of the best things about that is you can chat about my comics with me and others in my very own Debt On forum. Other comics in the collective include Line Item Vito, Monkey Law, Idiot Box, Fighting Words, Death of the Party and Cosmic Awareness.

Today I added comic 250 to the archives. That’s roughly 150 since I rebooted the comic in May, and 100 that I did two years ago. Onward to 300!!!

Comic Battles!

Things to do if you like Debt On:

I’ve been participating in the Webcomic Battle. Click here to go to the game and remember to vote Debt On!!!

Also, be my friend on ComicSpace. It’s like myspace, but for comics. Greeeat. Just what I needed. (The layout is much more pleasing than myspace. That’s the good news.)

Alright, back on track. Things have been hectic these past couple weeks, but they should cool off until the holidays, which are of course rapidly approaching. But at least I have some time for working on comics and such now.

First off, if you want an extra dose of my cartooning, I’m the guest artist on Ardra this week, so check that out! Wish I coulda colored it for him, though.

About that. I really want to get back to coloring the strips, but I’ve wanted to put extra work into the lineart lately, and really develop the visuals of the restaurant and the new characters I’m introducing. Sid’s jobs up until now have been very brief endeavors, but this one is going to last quite a while longer. We’re still only in the very beginning stages of this storyline. Not to worry, though. I haven’t forgotten about the other characters and as I’ve been doing already, other storylines will weave in and out as this one goes on.

Also, come January, I’m going to be taking a brief hiatus. But there will be some pretty exciting guest comics to keep you all entertained, and there’s plenty more Debt On to come afterwards. And if you’re an artist and would like to draw me a cool guest comic to feature on the site, I’d be thrilled to read it. Email me and we’ll talk.

While cruising a couple comics forums this morning I found out that Phillippe “Sketch” St. Gerard of The World of Cottonfluff Hollow posted a review of Debt On for the new blog for Sapo Entertainment:

Debt On does not need a monstrous cast or any situations any more bizarre than those thoughtfully provided by real life to succeed. The situations that they find themselves in make the plight of the characters (to say nothing of ourselves) seem all the more sobering, when you stop to think about it.

Of course, there is the occasional curve thrown by the cast, or even sometimes to the cast that serve the dual purpose of lightening the mood as well as further illustrating the fact that changes are necessary, if not immediately in sight.

My thanks to Sketch for the shout out.
