Today I want to talk a little about this comic I’ve been working on for the last 5 years. Maybe even longer.
I mention it by title every once in a while on this blog.
It’s The Legend of Jamie Roberts.
Jamie Roberts has been brought up before, but the launch of the actual webcomic has always been pushed back. That’s because I’m still writing and drawing it, and things are always changing.
But now, I’m feeling really confident with this story, and it will be coming out.
But let me tell you a little of what the story is about.
The figure on the left is Ranki. He’s a Dragon King from Corith. 500 years ago he was defeated in the Corith Civil War and banished. But being a dragon in human form that lives a really long time, he hasn’t died yet, and he’s still pretty ticked that he lost.
The figure on the right is Jamie Roberts. She ran away from her home in Touloy by joining a pirate crew, disguising herself as a boy so no one would recognize her. She and her two best friends from the crew, Thomas and Daniel, head for Corith when they discover there are national treasures to be found (and possibly looted).
Jamie and her friends are hired by another Dragon King to be his bodyguards while he travels across the country. I won’t tell you what adventures await them because you should read the comic for that.
Speaking of, the comic production schedule looks a little like this right now:
- Write comic, finish before the end of the month
- In January and February, draw comic pages.
- At the beginning of March, launch comic to the world!
I was about to say I would launch it in February – HOWEVER THAT’S NOT TRUE.
The reason I’m not launching in February is because there will be another announcement around that time. Watch out for Rogue KickStarter campaigns!
Still, I’m REALLY excited for The Legend of Jamie Roberts, and I hope that you are, too.
I even made a 7-page teaser you can read at SmackJeeves (though fair warning: it’s at least two years old. The art will look WAY different).
Keep watching this blog. I’ll be sharing more behind-the-scenes sketches and even some character snapshots!
