Sorry I've been gone for so long! I've been sorting out some stuff on how I want to proceed with some new projects (and yes, doing the Eniri/Elala question comic!).
You may recall that in earlier posts, I mentioned doing an ongoing web-comic serialization of The Elephant Book
(to be collected into regular graphic novels, so you can own the books as well), with some other original features mixed in (including a new online-only series called Dark House
, and the occasional Amazing Comic, Every Day Today, Mr. Boxstacker, and all your favorite DeviantArt short comics)! I've been running some numbers and trying to set something up through Patreon, but at the moment, I just don't have enough backers to my regular princessing blog (Birthdaypartyprincess.tumblr.com) to make doing a regular webcomic a reality right now. Sitting down and doing an in-depth comic every week, as opposed to short comic strips like a lot of webcomics do, just takes LOADS of time that I don't have, because I don't earn enough money to be able to free up enough time in my week to do it!
So I thought a fun way to raise money for this new comic series would be to add a new blog, called BLOGGERGHAST
, which will be a blog containing the daily work records of the Mausoleum of Bizenghast
. Dinah, Vincent, Edaniel and Edrear will all record their routine goings-on, as they do their jobs for the afterlife. The records are an up-to-date, right-this-moment kind of blog, with the events of The Riddle Road
series (currently serializing by ashcan in my Etsy store) having taken place just prior to now. Special guest recorders like Bali-Lali, and even archived records from Eniri and Elala, will also be featured, as well as anything else the guildsmen feel should be included in the official records...floor plans of various places in the Mausoleum, discoveries of new secret passages, new adventures with new human agents, the ongoing Prank War, flyers, notices and collected human items from the town, etc! Various story arcs will develop as you follow along with the up-to-date records of what's going on in the town of Bizenghast right now! And the best part is that it will be updated EVERY SINGLE DAY, at the same time (7:30 PM, Eastern Standard time).
Like my princess blog, it's TOTALLY FREE to read
. But it's also a blog that you can support, by donating a dollar or two every month through Patreon. You can set how much you want to back the blog for (anywhere from 1 dollar a month, to 20 dollars), and your level of donation will give you access to cool backer-only privileges, including being able to ask questions of the guildsmen and correspond with them!
I will keep the blog going continuously, and when we finally reach the monthly goal of Patreon support for it, I can begin the online webcomic series! ----------------------->Don't want to wait for your daily dose of Bizenghast? You don't have to, because Bloggerghast has ALREADY STARTED. BAM!: bloggerghast.tumblr.com/ Tune in EVERY NIGHT at 7:30 PM (EST) to see a newly updated record!
