The Road to Jove – In Crow Country

Just a heads-up in case you missed: The Road to Jove went online last Friday night.


The site’s very WIP at the moment, natch, but the prologue’s cover is up with the first three pages. For now we’re updating every Friday. Obviously that’s as slow as balls so we’re looking into ways of speeding that up, but even with a buffer zone of finished pages, well… David originally considered inking it – and it’d be way faster if he had – but we settled on painting it out in the end. The look of the painted pages was just too gorgeous to resist.

My comments under the first update cover all I need to say about the comic itself right now, so I’ll leave it at that.

In other news, I’ve been laid low by yet another fucking brutal cold manflu (thanks, beloved son) so I’ve not been at my desk much the last few days. Suffice to say I’ve gathered about 50 pictures for the next Tale of Five Heretics update, which – now that I can type again – I’ll post before the weekend.

  1. That is truly beautiful work. I’ll be passing this on to others to read. Keep it up

  2. I have just seen the prologue. You two make a good team. Daniel’s artwork is so fluid and evocative. Love his palette. I’m looking forward to see your vision framed on vignettes.

  3. Abso-f*cking-lutely gorgeous. A work that sucks you in on the first page and then as you click on the third page and nothing happens you go “That’s it?! NO! I want more!” Which is what I did.

    And the Robot. “He seems to be in no condition to tell us.” I already love him. 😀

    Can’t wait to see RtJ update, and perhaps one day be published in print. Would buy it on day one myself.

  4. Is there an RSS feed? I get paranoid about missing updates…
