A Brief Hiatus



"we're all going on a summer holiday..."

I've decided to take a break from updating the comic page now until the start of September in order to give me time to stockpile a number of week's pages so that when I come back in the Autumn I'll be working with a bit of a buffer. This should hopefully mean I won't skip weeks as often as well as giving me the opportunity to work on a couple of other projects over the summer, including getting the print issue of the comic ready for Nottingham Comic Con as well as hopefully getting everything ready for launching my Patreon page. I'll keep updating my Twitter and Instagram with process shots, sketches, thumbnails and drafts as always so keep checking there for your Nick Prolix art fix!

An Update Upgrade


Up until now I've announced each new update with a screenshot of that week's page on Twitter and Instagram ('other social media sites exist' - ed) which has meant that people haven't really needed to come to this website to see the content. I've noticed that some other webcomics do things differently and use a smaller preview image to announce new updates


I like this approach more and so this week I started thinking about ways I could do something similar. As well as serve as a preview for the week I also want the update image to work as a bit of world-building and to fit thematically with the comic's period setting.


British b-movie poster from the early Sixties

Using this cool poster from a series of second feature crime dramas made by Anglo Amalgamated as a model I've come up with something that I think works both as a tease for what you can expect from this week's strip as well as establishing the pulpy tone of the story through its visuals.
