New webcomic: Swan Eaters

As promised, today the new web comic about The Hawkers is up and running! I have been posting in it the last few weeks on the sly, because I like to invite folks to comic a few strips in. I figure it gives readers a little cushion to get to know the characters. I have about 9-10 posts up right now. If you read the Hawkers comics back in June when I first posted them here, today is the first day new material is debuting!

Part of the delay was due to the fact I needed to learn ComicPress. I put a shout out in Twitterland asking for anyone who could help, and one of the Comicpress developers Mr. Philip M. Hofer himself contacted me and sent a marvelous tutorial my way. It doesn't get better than that! Sometimes the internet is a grand place.

The comic itself is called "Swan Eaters", a name which will make more sense in time. It's about a ne'er-do-well family of scoundrels, mystics, and con artists traveling the world in the 1940s. Circus folk selling snake oil, telling fortunes, and inciting angry mobs of townspeople along the way. If I had to rate it I might give it an R, it's meant for grown ups. These are scoundrels, after all.

If you have already read the first few strips this summer, you can go right to!



I plan to post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and I hope you'll tune in! Please let me know what you think :)
