Update on strips
Hi, I just wanted to give all my readers an update on how the current situation is affecting my strips. It mainly concerns scheduling and content, as I haven’t missed any deadlines.
For “Fastrack” I had gotten ahead of my schedule to complete the Dethany graphic novel which I finished on March 15. I had sent in strips all the way up to May 9, all set in the workplace.
Things have changed, which required some improvisation. I couldn’t do anything about the strips up to April 12 since they’ve already gone to the newspaper clients. (Just assume that they take place in February when I created them.)
Beginning with the strip of April 13, the Fastrack staff will begin working from home. Bud will have his hands full connecting all the employees for videoconferences.
All of those strips originally scheduled from April 13 to May 9 will eventually run, when life returns to normal.
The “Fastrack” Sundays are separate from the dailies. I’ve sent in the Sundays up to May 31, some of those have office settings. Again, until June just assume they’re a recent historical fiction.
For “Kevin & Kell,” I’ve inked strips up to April 26 that involve Carl and Leona’s honeymoon and this year’s Easter Bunny story. After that I’ll decide on where to take the storyline.
As for Safe Havens, that takes place in a parallel fantasy universe depicting a mission to Mars with merfolk, time travelers and genetic manipulations on a planetary scale, so there will be no changes.
Finally, this month’s Dethany video for YouTube was delayed. I hope to upload that tomorrow (Sunday) in which Dethany and Fi discuss the challenges of working from home.
As always, thanks for reading!
Publishers Weekly spotlight
Our upcoming graphic novel, “Dethany and the Other Clique,” is being previewed in Publishers Weekly! Visit the link and scroll down for our interview!
It will debut this summer from Hermes Press. It's now available for preorder here: https://hermes-press.myshopify.com/products/dethany-and-the-other-clique-pre-order
It features 12-year-old Dethany as she navigates middle school under an absurdly structured system of cliques. She and a group of misfits try to maintain their individuality.
The book is 114 pages long and is a collaboration between myself and my daughter. We're both tremendously proud of the result.
