Welcome (welcome back for some of you) to Tales from the Middle Kingdom. I’m very happy and excited to officially begin Tale #2, which is based on the classic novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The story… well, read on and you’ll find out (for anyone interested, Tale #1 is posted in the Extras section). There will be a new comic every Thursday… I hope .
Some of you already know that I took part in the March Zuda competition. The competition just ended, and the winner is Night at the Western – a great comic and most deserving winner, so congrats to Lance Bailey and Cesar Sebastian. So obviously my own little entry didn’t win – came in dead last actually – but I have no complaints it was a very strong group this month, and I had a blast and learned a lot, so it was still a very rewarding experience. Anyhoo, one of the things I learned was that my 8-page Zuda entry to Zuda was too wordy and dry, not enough “show” and too much “tell”, as they say. So I’ve decided to start over, hopefully this time round it works better (my original Zuda submission is here for anyone interested).
BTW, I’m still tweaking the website, so please bear with me and let me know if anything’s out of whack.
