Comic is Finished!!! Loco, get to DRAWING NOW!!!!!!

That’s right, I’m done it’s all done, If I can get loco to draw my shit Jan. 23rd 2010 will be an awesome day and celebrate the release of the long awaited backlog comic (maybe if I can get my shit together and the comic is kick ass I’ll release the already finished epic Backloggery superheroes comic) but, of course let’s wait and see.

Big news regarding the comic 10-11-09

After much thought I have decided to re-do the backlog comic and axe the super heroics from the story, sorry for any one who wanted the other story but, to be quite honest I don’t think the story was that good so try to understand. Thanks!

Part 1 Finished, Origin of the Backlog comic and Plans for after Part 2.

So, for the most part the first story is finished being written and I have already started outlining Part 2, which in my opinion is starting to look much better and will feature more crazy action than the first story because it will feature  40+ backloggers all going nuts (well,some of them). I might as well explain this comic while I’m writing all this to to give evryone the heads up. The Backlog comic was created by my mad love for comics and my crazy desire to write with restrictions (meaning I work well when people give me something to work with). I was in the middle of writing a comic I had been doing for a very long time and had completely done I all I could with it so I got out of touch with writing.

In the middle of last year a friend of mine told me of a backlogging site for video games I was interested but, busy and forgot about it multiple times. Luckily, he wouldn’t shut up about it, so one night while surfing the web on my new monitor I had just got for Christmas and while browsing the web I remembered the site Backloggery.com. It wasn’t bad, not that spectacular but, it was fun, it wasn’t until I met the more popular members that my backlogging career really took off. It was fun getting to know the Backloggers, there was Minty who was the first person who I added to the friends list (not including my real life friend) and Sobou and Derkomai who added me to their list of friends very quickly. Going to the Try and Drum streams is where most of my Backlogger friends and I met up.  For a time, I showed up at everyone’s streams just talking to random people when a topic that I had any knowledge in would pop up. There were also times when I would just have a stream on and just watch so I decided that if wasn’t talking I might as well keep my hands busy so I picked up my pen and began to write whatever was on my mind.

Instead of writing stories I mostly just wrote down ideas while people were talking in chats and I would hear stuff while Try and Drum were streaming that sounded pretty funny and I would write it down and put my own spin on it, there were also times where I heard something funny and then after a while it just sounded dumb. One night after I left one of Hojo’s streams (my friend in real life) I got home and turned on my computer logged in to the stream and noticed a man by the name of eltipejoloco who had apparently mistaken Hojo for me but, I also noticed he had a channel with a ghetto setup, it was just me and one other person(not to sure) but, I stuck around for a bit before leaving to go to sleep. I noticed he was showing up for some other streams and before I knew it he was on the backloggery site and had a really cool looking banner, I asked if he had made it and said yes, it wasn’t long when I decided to friend him and I even got to be a mod on his channel. One day during a Backlog stream Derkomai starts to ramble about some backlog drawing I decided to check it out and it looked awesome and I was kinda upset that I went early that night but, I was even more upset when I found out that I was going to be in it but my friends(who have known me for years by the way) couldn’t describe me to Loco(apparently, tall guy with Brown hairand a five a’ clock shadow is just to crazy to remember). Eventually, I showed up in a drawings and I loved how they turned out.

During this time, I just got laid off and was unemployed but, I still had a budget for comics and I still had a pile of them from when I was busy working so I decided I should start getting them put away before I got buried in them. I don’t remember exactly what happened but, I decided to write another comic(probably because I had a stack of comics that had been in a pile because I was working so much) but, I had the itch to write another comic but, I didn’t know where to start from I knew I liked Super-Heroes but, there are so damn many and how would I make them unique? I looked to the backlog for help but, before I even asked anyone I knew what I was going to do, get The backloggers and make them super-heroes in a comic book. Luckily, Everyone was very excited about this project which made me more happy to write it and before long I had a huge list of people going and someone(I forget who) asked, “who is going to draw it?” I wasn’t sure because I never really drew my old stuff I just write it so incase I wanted to make it a comic I would have something. Someone mentioned Loco, I thought ” no way, this guy has better things to do” and sure enough Loco pops in and says “sure” and that would be the first time I ever had to work with an artist on anything.

Well, there you go the origin of the Backloggery comic book, Surprisingly there was a few things I left out that I just felt weren’t important but, anyway on to the last thing. I have tried asking people if they wanted to be in the comic message me however, no one does and I have to go and get them myself so, plans for after Part 2 I already have the Two main characters in mind and if I see random cool people on Backloggery I will ask them too so yes, I will now be hunting people down for the comic. Now I shall go, I think I have written enough and hopefully people wanna read this(BECAUSE I POURED MY HEART AND SOUL INTO THIS ONE).

Later
