Disney Adventures


Today I've been digging through my old collection of Disney Adventures magazines, trying to figure out which ones I am OK to part with and which ones I need to keep. There were so many great comics in these things that were never published elsewhere! (For example, the completely bonkers SPACE MICKEY AND THE THROGG RAY WARS!)


DA ran a ton of Disney franchise comics -- most of them based on Disney Afternoon TV shows, many of them surprisingly good. But in their later years, they also started publishing a lot of original creator-owned content, too! DA was the first place BONE was ever published in colour, and the first place I ever saw it as a kid. I wish we still had something with the reach of that magazine putting original new comics in front of children's eyeballs. There isn't really anything like it anymore.


Fortunately, we do have the internet! Come back on Friday for our next strip, and a new round of reader Q and A. See you then!

Spark


This chapter has been a bit of a rollercoaster of dead-serious conflict and goofy imagery. I guess that's Sin in a nutshell, though. Come back on Wednesday for the next installment!


Felipe Ribeiro Daneluz -- a dude who made a bunch of pretty solid Sonic fan games -- is kickstarting his first original project! It's a Sonic/Megaman X/Kirby-influenced 2D platformer called Spark, and there's a 3-level downloadable demo right at the top of the Kickstarter page that shows a ton of promise. (And also has a catchy-as-hell soundtrack.)

Sam and Fuzzy Q & A:  Whiteout Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!


"Um... did Sin just KILL all the Erasers? Or just knock them out? Because the former would be pretty rough. YIKES." -Alice


All the Erasers who had their equipment upgraded by Sin sometime over the last few months have, indeed, left this mortal coil. (He is not messing around!) That won't be every Eraser, but it'll be a huge chunk of them. Definitely more than half.


You are not the only one who hoped it was the later, though! Check out this awesome guest strip sent to me by Samantha “Spot” de G:



Thank you, Samantha! I love this stuff. (Samantha is working on a comic that hasn't launched yet, but I'll be sure to link to it when it does!)


"So, did Sin have to avoid saying "Whiteout" for a couple of years?" -Dave


Only a few months! But yes. Fortunately Sin never corrects his mistakes!


"Would you say that Wednesday's comic was perhaps the darkest moment in all of Sam and Fuzzy? Either way, what would the competition be?" -Mercury


I actually thought that last Friday's Eraser masacre topped Brain's unfortunate disection in the darkness department. But it's definitely all pretty rough collectively!


Is it the darkest moment? I'm not sure! I always thought the whole final showdown between Sam and Blank got pretty grim. Of course, the scale there was very different. But it's hard to compete with this last panel.


"Will all the Patreon stuff be available later for people that maybe want to chip in eventually, but are cash strapped / other circumstanced for now?" -Keith


Mostly! Everyone gets the ebooks right when they sign up, and new Art Blog level Patreon backers will be able to read the backlog of previous posts whenever they sign up! The idea with the blog is to use it to talk about things I'm working on right now, so many of the posts are kind of time-relevant things like previews and early comics. But if you want to catch up on old posts, they'll all be there!


I may rotate some things out of the Secret Art Vault over time, though, just to make room for new stuff.  (The Photoshop files in particular take up a lot of space!) But there will always be a healthy amount of swag in there at any given time!


We return on Monday with our next comic. See you then, team!
