Alright, first off some good news. We’re going to Kumoricon the first of September (seriously the convention runs from September 1-3). We’ll, of course, be sharing a table with the amazing Jake Richmond where we will be selling not only our wonderful comics, but the entire line of Cel*Style products. I hope you’ll all stop by the booth again and at least say, “hi.” If you can’t do that Jake and I will be giving a reprise of our panel “Dubious Medusa” on Sunday (Sept. 2) at 3:30 in the Hemlock room (so Kumoricon says, but they’ve also said that’s subject to change. We’ll keep you updated). We’ve learned a lot in the past year and we’re more than happy to share what we’ve learned with all of you.
Now, some more good news! We mentioned it before but Tria and I are working on a new comic called Licensed Heroes. To answer a few anticipated questions: No we’re not stopping DBC for Licensed Heroes, our plan is to run both comics at the same time, and we’ve hopefully streamlined our comic process enough that we can do that without me or Tria dying. Dubious Company will run until I’ve told the story I was initially planning on telling (or making fun of, I can’t remember and I lost my notebook); that’s an aside though. Licensed Heroes is comical fantasy that takes place in an anachronistic fantasy world. The comic follows the adventures of Tempest, who has just graduated Adventuring School and jumps into the wide world of being an official Licensed Hero! Sadly, like our world, he quickly learns that his dream job isn’t as idyllic as he thought it would be, and he’s going to spend most of his time navigating the bureaucratic systems of The Adventuring Guilds rather than doing his actual job. First comic will be posted September 8, 2012 (and yes we know that’s cutting it really close to Kumoricon but we’re just awesome like that).
