The Move, as it shall be known, is over. Stephanie, myself, and the cats (Nigel and Rags) moved into our new house last Thursday. We said good-bye to apartment life, and hello to house life. It’s an adjustment for all involved: I have to mow a lawn, Stephanie has to live without streaming video for another week, new scary sounds for Nigel, and Rags must get used to climbing stairs.
Watching the cats get used to the house, specifically now having a basement and two floors, was my favorite part. Rags was a bit too enthusiastic on the first day, as he quickly started panting after a few trips up and down the stairs.
We also found out the day before he’s a few pounds overweight. Oops. Well, we’re all getting some extra exercise now (I lived in apartments for the past 11 years).
As our new life starts to shape up, I’m working on new comics when I can. I still plan to start posting new comics in September. Hopefully. If that’s the first week of September, or the last, I don’t know yet. It depends on how the next few weeks go. There’s a lot of unpacking to do, and as I said above we don’t have internet just yet.
I did manage to scan a couple of pages of the new comic, and part of the first one is available for my Patreon patrons to see. (Pledge at least $1/month and you get full access to all of my patrons only posts)
I’ll share this bit though: the story is adventure-fantasy, with my usual humor. However, as I said on Patreon, it is not an adaptation of my novel, The Magic of Eyri.
This new comic will certainly be similar in style and tone to Magic of Eyri, but I decided to do something different. Adapting Magic of Eyri would be easy in some ways: the story is done. But harder in others: I’m locked into that story. After a novel and a podcast, I’m done with Magic of Eyri for now (I would certainly love to republish it with a real publisher however, and write more stories in that world).
However, I might be recycling stuff from various novels and short stories I never published.
Don’t worry. No Filter Fox isn’t going anywhere either. He’s very much a part of these new adventures. The rest of the regulars will pop up here and there too.
