Well, if having my truck broken down has any positives, it’s that I had time to finish this week’s page!
In case you’re wondering who’s talking, I have tagged the characters that are off panel.
It’s bringing love! Don’t let it get away!
as some of you may be a aware, Project Wonderful, an advertising platform used by most webcomics, has shut down, leaving me with no advertising at the moment. This sucks as it has taken a big bite out of my traffic. So I am asking you to tell a friend about Gregor! Word of mouth is still the best way to get eyes on a project, after all!
Also, Gregor turned 7 yesterday! Cue fanfare! as a little birthday treat I put up a “remastered” version of the second page of this comic on my Patreon.
AND ANOTHER THING! I have a Gregor Instagram now! Just click on the link to the side of the comic where the lovely Chloe is standing!
EDIT: fixed the IG link. Who’d have thought that a simple semicolon would cause such a problem?
You know, I seem to remember the comic being about this guy…..
Portland readers! My wife and I will be selling our wares at Rose City Comic Con September 7th through the 9th! I’ll have the first printed volume of Gregor and we’ll both have a bunch of prints! Hope to see you there!
On a sadder note, my cat, Colby, the model for Gregor’s kitten of the same name, died yesterday in my arms. He was super sweet and loved to give love bites. We’ll miss him terribly.
Hurrah! Go Stan, amiright? This page took a little longer than I wanted because I dropped my Surface on my way to my car and the screen SHATTERED! I had to do some extreme digging online to find a new one AND I had to replace it myself. Everything worked out and now I carry this thing more gently than I do my firstborn.
Yay! New page! SMELL the newness of it!
New print coming soon! If you’re a Patron you’ll have seen it, and if not, I’ll be posting here as soon as I get it on my store page.
I’ll give you a hint: SSDGM
For those that don’t get the title to this page, feel free to go read the greatest comic book ever written, Watchmen.
As for the art of this one, I wanted to convey the somewhat inconsistent nature of Mr Liefeld’s art by A. seriously bulking up Lie-Carver from the last page to this one and B. Lazily removing the Lie-Chloe and explaining it through a wall of text.
HEY! I’m back! I know I say that every time I post a page, but this time, it’s true(probably)! Things speed up quite a bit coming up and I have it all plotted out, so I shouldn’t hit any more artist’s blocks. Is that a thing? Like a writer’s block? ANYWAY, I’m pleased with how the Mercury pinup turned out, so I’ll be doing more, with NSFW versions on the Patreon. I think I’ll do Pluto next; I can have some fun with those wings!
This is what we’ve been leading up to, faithful readers! I only hope it’s obvious what it is I’m trying to do, here. These guys are actually the first villains that I thought of AFTER I had started publishing Gregor. Originally I was going to have Gregor get trapped in a dimension where everything looked like it was drawn by Rob Leifeld, but I eventually decided it would be funner to make the big bad alien menace from G’s origin shitty shapshifters that always look like the person they’re imitating, only if they were drawn by Rob Liefeld.
Rob always gets used as the bellwether for bad drawing, but he actually can draw. Really well, in fact. He just doesn’t normally. Hell, if I got paid what he did I’d draw teeny tiny waists and truck-sized guns and pockets for days!
Also, I wish I hadn’t been lazy when I did the first page in this room and had actually drawn a background. Oh, well. :/
