Howdy, par’ners! Ready for Friday’s Daily Mega Comics Group Updates? Great! Let’s head ’em up and move ’em out!
We’ll not be updating the blogs this weekend again. Instead we’ll be working on the background operations of running 3 comics web sites. We’re still building and as you might have noticed we’ve made a lot of changes in just the past few days. For those who are curious about it here’s a little rundown of what goes on behind the scenes. It takes a 1 -2 hours each day just to get the updates done. That’s just the web production part of it. We also have art, layout, design and editing to do as well. That can take many hours. As we draw to a close on our old Legacy Comics Material we are stepping up new material production. So it’s getting to the point the weekends off from posting are needed more than ever. Even though we are not posting on the weekends the work is still going on. Then there is advertising and promotion and getting set up for new areas such as the printed books we’re about to undertake. We’ve also got some other products we’ll be adding to our store. Oh yeah, and we have to finish the online store set up too! So as I eluded to last week, we’ll probably keep the 5 week daily postings instead of the 7 day week for the time being, maybe through the remaining 3 months of this year. We hope to have all the major construction of our sites done by then as well as a lot of new story and art as well.
Of course as I wrote yesterday it’s not just this site, we’re working on more visibility on the web with OnlineComics.net, ComicSpace.com, DrunkDuck.com and Salty ‘Ham Cartooneestas just to mention a few. These are not all either, so keep watching this space for more news on what we are doing in the ways of promotion. Our web stats have shown increases every month and we expect that will continue especially with these new promotion areas.
Again 2009 could be a very special year for the Mega Comics Group thanks to you! We couldn’t do it without ya!
Project New Man # 4:
So who is Ebeneezer Baal? Figured it out yet? There are some clues on this very page just as we’ve dropped here and there throughout The Haunted Man storyline. He is a character which has appeared before in our continuity. I’m sure you have figured it out but for those who may still be piecing it together we’ll wait until page 19 to reveal his name to the world at large.
Now here’s another interesting little continuity tidbit: Baal mentions E.D.G.E. If you have read today’s Humants update already you heard my spiel about how that group plays a major role in the Legacy Universe. Now we find out Baal is tied into to them as well! You may recall E.D.G.E. from New man’s origin in PNM #2. Hah! Now, there’s a major clue for you! 🙂
We meet some new characters today. Actually we saw them in the closing panels of yesterday’s page we just did not know their names. Meet Vic Torrent, Moniel Khonte and Professor Jacob Sanders. We start to learn a little more about a couple of government groups with the titles A.R.A.D and E.D.G.E. The two groups are tied into the background of the whole series and the Legacy Universe figuring into the Project: New Man storyline as well. “How?” you ask. The heck if I know! Freazie wrote this stuff! 😉 But I’m sure he’ll enlighten us on that as we go. We’re only in issue 3, there are 3 more issues of Humants to go! So don’t go away, keep checking back everyday so we can see how his thing turns out! I’m as eager to find out as you are, and I’m the Publisher! Which, as I’ve come to find out, means I’m the head Gopher! 😉
