A Note From Jynksieon 07/26/2012 at 11:25 am
In what some would consider comic suicide, I have decided to dump the MADBURY archives and start anew with a redesigned format for the comic. Allow me to explain the changes I am making and how it affects what you’ve come to know about the comic and the time and investment you’ve made with the characters of MADBURY!
The cast is NOT changing, the characters you’ve come to know and love or loathe will continue on as you’ve always known them to be, this reset is also going to allow me to expand the cast base going forward as well. What will change is in how they interact with one another based on a shift in writing style and presentation. By writing style, I’ve decided to disband the gag a day theme I’ve been doing and have decided to go in a more serial dramady [some drama/mostly comedy] route that will allow me to expand the depth of the characters. As for the presentation, it will be in a vertical page design that will allow me to make the comic whatever size I need for the work I wish to present that week. The art and design of the characters will remain as you’ve known them, with some minor tweaking having been done. 7 comics from the previous version of MADBURY will be familiar to you as they role out in August, but not exactly what you read of them the last go around. Dialogue has been tweaked, as have visual elements, to also notate the change in direction and tone going forward. I encourage you to read them and comment as you always have.
Beginning JULY 30th, MADBURY will re-introduce 7 of the former “Fruit Of Their Loins” series of comics leading up to the September 17th launch of all NEW comics from that point forward. Occasionally, you may see comics from the old archive intertwined into the new version [rewritten-redrawn], but they won’t come back verbatim, unless the older comics content works with whatever is going on now.
There will be -NO- future resets or name changes for this comic, I have, after a few years of toiling with this comic, come to an understanding of what I want to do with it and what goals I intend to accomplish with it. My hope is that you, the reader, will allow me the luxury of making this change, a change that will allow my creativity to flow unimpeded by mistakes and learning curves of the past few years.
I look forward to many years of MADBURY, join me won’t you?!?
