Season 4 of Q-Burger ends with a bang today, and a bit of a cliffhanger.
But fear not. Season 5 will fire up on January 6th, 2010. And it'll be a little different this time round.
You'll have issues with this change
I've been hard at work on Season 5, developing the story for the last year or so. It's been a challenge, what with all the plot lines and characters and stuff. Almost as much of a challenge as it's been for you folks to read and keep track of it all.
So I've decided to try a new approach in order to make this increasingly complicated story a little more easily consumed and digested. I'm going to be publishing Q-Burger in six-page issues on the first Wednesday of every month. Each issue will have a "cover" image, and five story pages.
I decided to go this route because most of the feedback I got from Season 4 was that the story was too difficult to keep track of when doled out just one page at a time, once a week. So in order to combat that, and give the reader a more satisfying and sustained comics experience, I'm taking the monthly, issue format.
I already have issue #1 pencilled, and I'll be finishing up the script for #2 as soon as I'm done writing this entry, so I'm confident that, come January, I'll have a recipe for sustainability and quality.
Fear not, you won't go hungry
I can already hear your looming, gigantic question:
But if I only get to read a new comic once a month, what am I going to do for the weeks between issues?
I could tell you, but I'd rather show you...
...show you an 8-page preview of my new, twice-weekly comic, The Winchcombe!
The Winchcombe follows the journey of a historical Downtown Minneapolis bar, its owner, and crew as they struggle to return it to profitability and respectability. Another restaurant comic? I know, I know, but if you read the preview, you'll soon see that The Winchcombe very different from my other restaurant comic.
