- 20k – for everyone who supports at least at a $20 level, you will get a Dustin “chick tract” zine. Dustin “pens it post-spacetraveling” about what’s really out there (from his perspective) to the skeptics of earth.
- 25k – for everyone who supports at least at a $20 level, you will get a full-color “how to survive being shanghaied into space booklet” penned (and with pictures) from various members of the cast.
- 30k – I will extend creating Spacetrawler, by postponing the next project and doing an additional standalone Spacetrawler storyline, lasting 3 months/24 strips.

It always irks me when people throw knives in movies and they miraculously hit blade first. Ha!
Monday was very interesting for me. I got to participate on a gallery panel discussing upcoming shows. What fun to learn new things like that! In the evening I made a pizza and read. A perfect cool August evening.
A year of curiosity on Mars. Nice! :)
Spacetrawler book#3 KICKSTARTER, pre-purchase you copy NOW!
Thank you all, the Book 3 Pre-sale is going really well. If you wish to order Book #3 now, go visit my Kickstarter!
I did finally get all the mad eeb cloaks consistent. Not only had I accidentally put them in jackets rather than togas TWICE, but I’d also switched from dark togas to light togas to dark togas to light togas. What a mess. But it’s done. Phew! Anyhow, See them using the tag Crimson-57 or individially here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
I went painting with my painting group this Thursday, but it ended up being a short day and I didn’t get a heck of a lot done. On Sunday my sweetie and I hiked Buck Mountain, but we’d gotten caught up in errands earlier and so we got a late start and only went half-way. Still, hike! Fun!
As promised, if you go back to Monday’s page, the Spacetrawler strip is up WITHOUT my interruption. ;-)
Thank you everyone who I made visit my Kickstarter, and thank you everyone so far who bought the books as well! Monday the goal was met. BUT, it’s still a bargain to buy them now, and I encourage you to support the Kickstarter as it runs.
Thank you to Gary for the shoutout over at Fleen.
Not much new here. By chance my sweetie and I got to see a free showing of the Saratoga Shakespeare Company‘s “The Merry Wives of Windsor” in the park. This Thursday I’m going out plein-air painting again with my painter friends. Good times! But boy, are they frikkin’ busy times. :)
///On this update, I originally posted today’s strip over on my Kickstarter page. The image I posed HERE is this one.///
Yup! The final book in the Spacetrawler series is winding down and I’m ramping up to print it!
And so I’ve launched a Kickstarter to do pre-orders to fund it! I hope you like it! -Christopher
Geeze-Louise, this strip makes me sad. Poor Martina. Sorry I wrote the story like a knife with you at it’s point.
So, as “A_Reader” pointed out in last Wednesday’s comments, at some point I started making the mad eebs’s togas dark (the same color as the normal eeb outfit). So, I’ve gone back to the original toga color, and when i get a chance (urk!) I’ll go back in and fix the ones in the archive (along with the ones where I drew them in jackets rather than togas). With so many details, it’s so easy to forget little things like that!
Been a productive weekend. My girlfriend was away and so I worked every day from waking until dropping off to sleep again, living off of sweet cereal and waffles like a hummingbird. I could use a nap. And a salad.
Ooh, it’s been busy. Lots of drawing. Lots of plotting. Some singing and speaking, some emailing and cooking. But nothing blog-worthy.
It’s been hot. I have to keep the fan directly on me all day to keep me dry enough so that my forearms don’t warp the drawing paper with sweat.
There are not enough cookies in the house. That is all. Truly, what more is there? Nothing. That is all.
I finally finished the two Spacetrawler strips which I had only posted as drafts, um, about a year ago. Anyhow, they’re both up now. It’s this one, and the next one, this one. Now, I think all I have left to go back and do is the few strips where I accidentally put the mad eebs in jackets rather than togas.
Hey, Scott and Audra just finished their run of Nemu*Nemu which guest-featured Vachel (from my comic, Little Dee), so now’s your chance to go over there and read ‘em. The storyline featuring Vachel STARTS HERE.
And I told you before that when I mentioned YA books, two authors sent me books. How awesome is that? Well, I just finished the second, Castle Falcon by Tom Brosz (the direct Amazon link is Castle Falcon), and it was a delight. YA, two siblings save the earth from the magical powers of evil. It’s a love poem to all the adventures you love: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Zorro, Scooby Doo, Lovecraft, Humphrey Bogart films, etc. It’s a playful and fun ride, the energy lying in the fantastical and curious elements rather than the suspense (which I felt was very low, since two protagonists can not only do every cool thing you ever imagined, but this all-powerfulness also makes it feel like they are safe from real danger).
A couple strips back you guys flooded me with ideas, but I’m still catching up from the holiday weekend, so I haven’t had a chance to ponder them. but thank you! Every one will be read and thought about! :)
My sweetie dragged me out to see the movie “The West.” Funny, I liked it more than she because it is actually fairly interesting and well structured in its script. But she was displeased at the safe Hollywood morals and ending it gave. We both liked the acting. Anyhow, can’t say i recommend it, but it’s interesting. I don’t think I’ll be pondering it as long as I pondered “Before Midnight,” but what movie COULD do that? ;-)
I’ve begun putting together a pre-sale for Spacetrawler book #3, which I’ll probably do through Kickstarter. Part of me very much wanted to do (in addition) a hard-cover version of the entire run with all the naughty language edited out (so it could be given to kids or as presents), but looking at costs, I don’t think that will be possible. As it is, book #3 will be MUCH longer (20 months of strips rather than 12) and have a slightly more durable cover. Anyhow, I’ve just been puttering at it, working on the cover, and so I thought I’d mention that.
Hey, I’ve been meaning to mention. I have done a good number of newspaper serials with the talented writer Mike Peterson (if you want them in your local paper, see his site here). But I’ve been meaning to mention, he writes a daily blog about comics, focusing mostly on editorial, but with plenty of newspaper dailies and webcomics thrown in. I don’t even remember if he’s talked about my work there, but his writing is insightful and thoughtful and worth reading. Check it out.
And I’ll end things with a video which melts my heart.
The scanner arrived this weekend (thank you again, Erik!). I added washes to the strip from last Monday, but am only half-done adding them and coloring Wednesday’s strip. I’ll upload it when i upload THIS Wednesday’s strip.
Went swimming this weekend. And played tennis. Saw a big turtle, and my sweetie and I urged it off the road so a car wouldn’t hit it. It was so pretty!
