COMICS NEWS: Fourth “Damania” Webcomic Mini Series To Appear In July (And Line Art Preview)

2016 Comics news February

Well, a little under two weeks ago, I posted the release dates for some of my upcoming webcomics projects. If you’re new to the series, then a good introduction to the characters would probably be this narrative comic from 2015 called “The Diabolical Sigil“. Or, if you don’t mind SPOILERS, you can check out the first one of the new mini series (called “Damania Redux”) a month early on DeviantART.

I am very proud to announce that the list of release dates I posted in January is now slightly out of date, since there will now be a fourth “Damania” webcomic mini series called “Damania Restricted” that will probably appear here from the 16th July- 21st July.

As you may have guessed from the dates, this mini series will be shorter than all of the other ones. I mostly made this decision in order to focus more on quality and because, after making the third mini series (“Damania Returns”- which will appear here in June) and the comic that follows it within a relatively short amount of time, I also wanted a short project that was a little bit more relaxing.

Although this series will probably end up on DeviantART before it appears here, I plan to post the “work in progress” line art from this mini series on here a day or two after the series has finished as a WordPress exclusive. Here’s a small preview:

Anyway, I hope that you’re looking forward to it as much as I am :)

2016 Comics news January

Although I tried to make sure that my previous comic (which can be read here) had something close to a simultaneous DeviantART / WordPress release, this unfortunately won’t really be possible with the comics that I’ve got planned for this year (due to the way that I schedule things). But, don’t worry, there will be some extra stuff here to compensate for the later WordPress release dates. More on that later in the article.

But, first, if you’re a fan of my “Damania” webcomic series, then you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve recently started posting “Damania Redux” – a new ‘old style’ 12 comic mini series on DeviantART. The new comics can be viewed after the long description at the top of this page. They will also be updated daily.

So far, there are just two “Damania Redux” comics on there but, thanks to DeviantART’s content rules, one of them requires site membership to view (it contains some slightly gruesome cartoon zombie art and I wasn’t sure if this met the criteria for “mature content” under DeviantART’s rules). It will be posted in full here though.

Anyway, one of the things that I’ll be doing to make up for this gigantic difference in release dates is that the complete “work in progress” line art for the series will be posted here (and only here) on the 30th March. Line art will also be posted sometime after the other two mini series that I have planned to post here too.

In addition to this, one blog article that will be posted after “Damania Redux” finishes here (or possibly during it’s run, I can’t remember the exact date for the article) will contain an exclusive comic update that was cut from the series. Likewise, during the spring and early summer, there will also be at least a few “making of” articles and articles about making webcomics.

In addition to this, I’ll also provide you with a list of dates for when all of my upcoming “Damania” comics (these include both traditional-style webcomic mini series and short B&W narrative comics) will be posted here. They’ll probably appear on DeviantART earlier than this though.

1st – 12th March 2016: “Damania Redux” (12 episode webcomic mini series)

12th -27th April 2016: “Damania Resurgence” (15 episode webcomic mini series)

11th- 18th May 2016: “The Charity Case: A Harvey Delford Mystery” (Yes! Harvey finally gets his own comic!)

25th May – 10th June 2016: “Damania Returns” (17 [?] episode webcomic mini series)

14th June – 22nd June 2016: “The ‘Let’s Play’ ” (Derek and Rox try to make a “let’s play” video for a banned computer game from the 1990s. Hilarity ensues.)

Sorry again about the differences in release dates, but – whether you read the comics here or on DeviantART – then I hope that you enjoy them :)

Merry Christmas Everyone :) [And Upcoming Comics News :) ]

Well, merry Christmas everyone :) Have a fabulous day :)

For today, I thought that I’d make a quick digtally-edited painting of the characters from both my old “Damania” webcomic and my more recent “Diabolical Sigil” and “The Horror Of Hardtalon Hall” comics. This cartoon was originally also going to include dialogue, but I couldn’t quite think of any.

For fans of the series, you’ll be pleased to know that these characters (well, except for Horace [the green creature]) will be returning in the spring for – at the time of writing – two webcomic mini series and one B&W narrative comic (starring Harvey [the guy in the trenchcoat] – it’s about time he got his own comic).

Normal daily articles and daily art posts will resume tomorrow. I’m also not sure if I’ll be reviewing the “Doctor Who” christmas special sometime (it depends on time, enthusiasm etc.. it’s probably best to assume that I won’t, but it’s possible that I might – although it will probably be late if I do). Anyway, have a wonderfully festive day :)

The Complete “The Horror Of Hardtalon Hall” – The New Dark Comedy Comic By C. A. Brown

2015 The Complete Horror Of Hardtalon Hall

Well, in case you missed it, here’s all nine pages of “The Horror Of Hardtalon Hall” – a dark comedy/ horror parody comic that I made for Halloween this year.

It’s kind of a follow-up to my “Diabolical Sigil” comic from earlier this year and, despite getting writer’s block a couple of times, it was great fun to make :)
