My first Webcomic, Geek Force, will be returning Friday May 22nd

Seven years ago today I launched my very first Webcomic. I was a month away from graduating High School and didn't know dick about making Webcomics. I couldn't draw worth a damn and rushed myself into production on the comic. I committed myself to a production schedule I could not keep.

Not surprisingly, a little over than one year later that Webcomic fizzled out. I have launched two Webcomics in the interim. One that ran for about three years and is kind of alive now in a sporadic form. The other is ongoing and has been updating for a year and a half. Hopefully that one will continue for years to come.

Even with the new Webcomics I had always vowed to bring Geek Force back. To finish telling my story. I have brought it up from time to time. I posted some scripts and rough artwork for Geek Force exactly two years ago today.

Tonight I am pleased to announce that finally, Geek Force will be returning to the site for good. On Friday May 22nd, the reboot of Geek Force will launch. It is now entitled Ostraka. It is no longer a comedy, it is no longer so overtly political. That is what my Vociferations are for. It is now an action drama series.

The comic will post six pages each week. I had mentioned previously I was hoping to release Ostraka in bigger blocks of pages than that. This is still the case. Four issues make one chapter and each issue ends like the acts of television shows inbetween commercials. The only reason I am not releasing chapters all at once is because while seasons might work on TV they don't really work for Webcomics. 

In the coming weeks between now and May 22nd, I will be revealing the new names for the characters on this blog and on my website.
Even with the change in tone, and the fact that I am trying a genre I have never made a Webcomic in before, I hope all of my readers will give Ostraka a chance. I think this dystopian action comic I the best one I can possibly make and I am proud of it.
