First up, I’m incredibly happy with the reception to the first comic. It’s always exciting and scary to share your creation with the world, and the fact you guys are along for the ride already is very rewarding.
In response to a couple of questions, I’ve added a Gamer Geekery page to the top navigation. Basically, Clockworks the comic is based on events in Clockworks the tabletop roleplaying campaign. So if our heroes ever crash and burn and fail miserably, you can blame the players. I’m not planning on really getting in to typical gamer webcomic humor, as I think that’s ground that has been covered much better than I could.
I do have a question for you guys: if I post updates fleshing out the world of Clockworks beyond what you’ll see in the comic, would you prefer to see those here or the main Shawntionary.com blog?
On one hand, I like the idea of having everything in one place, on the other I dislike the idea of having posts here that don’t have comics attached. I want to hear what you guys think.
See you on Tuesday, for the thrilling third part of our adventure!
EDIT: Booo, I won’t be posting blogs here detailing the world of Clockworks, unless I post them on Tuesday and Thursday with the comic. I just did a test, posting an overview of the Great Republic, and it was as I worried: if I post a blog without a comic attached, it shows up at the top of the front page, and takes a place in the archives. So if you were clicking through the comics, you’d come to an entry with no comic talking all about the Great Republic or whatever. That’s definitely not what I want.
For now I’ll just post stuff attached to the Tuesday and Thursday comics, and I’ll look in to a fix, but no promises.
