not much to report today--craig and rico and i are in the final stages of getting the PERHAPANAUTS ANNUAL done and to the printer. i don't think i've said this, but craig is doing an incredible job--especially since i (we) decided to change tracks once into the annual.
see, originally, before we were definitely signed on to move to image, we were intending this annual as a giant sized one shot story that would wrap up the hanging plotlines from the second chances storyline. (if you'll recall, karl had just taken the 'haps to the par-ha, the nexus of all time and space, the team had just returned the dover demon to the sludge pit from whence he came, having discovered that he truly was the last survivor of his race, a horde of gremlins had infiltrated BEDLAM, and a couple of cops showed up with an arrest warrant for arisa.)
craig had already gotten into seven or eight pages of this when image called and gave us the go. at that moment, we realized that we had an opportunity to introduce a lot of new people to the perhpanauts and tell a thrilling stand alone epic story that would, hopefully, make them come back for more.
so we (i) went back to the drawing board.
well, actually, i went back to my computer and craig went back to the drawing board, starting from scratch with the deadline already fast approaching. what he's sent me, under such incredible pressure, is just gold! i really think that the annual is gonna do just what we'd hoped--work as a nice introduction to the team and the characters and introduce a new nightmare--the JERSEY DEVIL!--a much more brutal beast than anything the 'haps have faced before!
we'll be posting preview pages soon!
