Kenny had a pretty rough week.
First he got into a car accident. Then his grandfather had a seizure (he’s alright now). On top of all of this, school is starting as Kenny’s summer classes are ending. Anyway, if you wanted to know why the comic was a bit late this week, those are the reasons.
Kenny is one of the most dependable people I’ve ever met. I was shocked when I first started asking him to do comics that he did so regularly. In my experience with people, dependability is rarest of virtues. Yet, it’s something Kenny has in spades. The only times the comic is more than a few days late are the times with reasons like those above. It’s also why I worry for Kenny, because I don’t want this comic to take up parts of his time he can’t afford. He deserves to graduate college and improve his lot in life. Real life always has to come first.
We’ve been throwing around ideas for a comic about the origin of the Origin ‘walkers for a while now. I wanted to dedicate 5 weeks to the task (one multipanel story a week, of the level of detail we gave the Brothers War). However, those ideas weren’t very funny. They would just be a textless retelling of the MTGS Wiki page for each ‘walker. I thought it might be useful to have a short visual picture of major Magic story lines. Something you could send to your friend and say “here’s what happened.” We might still do it at some point. But, it would be awkward if something huge happened in the magic community over those 5 weeks. We could break them up, but they’d become less useful as a guild. Kenny asked if it was even worth doing it. Since the story for each would be drastically different in a few years, the value of the retailing would depreciate. Also, they already have visual origins for those 5 walkers in Magic Duels: Origins.
