The Crimson Fly #44: "We're going to do this right, this time."

                   


Vol. 01
Story: Issue #4: "The Fire"

NOTE-UPDATE:
Hey all.  I think I'm going to take a break, prep for the incoming year and come back strong then.  The Crimson Fly is on break until 2016, when new strips will start up January 4th! How's that? Sorry,  but I really need the break.  Thanks for understanding, and I'll see you in 2016!

This Week:
The Fly decides to "do it right" and call in the paramedics to handle the situation.  Will they arrive in time?

The Crimson Fly #43: "Am I really helping?"

                   


Vol. 01
Story: Issue #4: "The Fire"

NOTE:
This weekend was awesome and really busy so I ended up kinda burning out by Sunday evening, so this swf is a placeholder until I can finish the animation by hopefully late this afternoon. Thank you for your patience!

Fixed! Thanks for your patience

This Week:
The Fly mulls over the events of the entire volume.  Is he really making a difference?  No idea what he's talking about? Now's a great time to start fresh!

IN OTHER NEWS (December 14th, 2015):
This past weekend was my first time tabling at a convention, and it was awesomesauce (is that a thing people still say?)!  The con (well, mini-con) was B-more into Comics at the Windup Space in Baltimore, MD.   It was awesome; I learned a lot, spoke a lot, met a lot of people, and hopefully made some new friends, some of which I hope are reading this now!

The thing is, I still have some leftover merchandise that I'd like to pass on, so if you're interested in a physical copy of issues 1, 2, or 3, please shoot me an email at skipperwing@gmail.com and we can work something out.

The Crimson Fly, Issue #4: Cover

                   


Vol. 01
Story: Issue #4: "The Fire" ("cover")

This Week: It's the... cover... for Issue #4...! Okay, a bit of a let-dow- hey, wait, what happened to the Crimson Fly's sleeves? *sneaks off in the confusion...

IN OTHER NEWS (December 7th, 2015):
Yeah, its a bit of a  cop-out, but what're you gonna do? I'm trying something new by giving these things covers.  Proper covers, and not just the intro.  Next week, the story begins proper.

Also, a new thing: this upcoming weekend (12/12/15), I have a table at "B-More into Comics:" a mini-convention held at the "Windup Space" in Baltimore MD.  If you're in town, pop on by!  I'll be selling physical copies of the first three issues, as well as prints of content that appears in my "SkipperWing Draws a Thing!" series.   So what do you say? Come by and say hello! I know I'd really appreciate it!

The Crimson Fly, Issue #03: "The Wrong Choice"

                   


"The Crimson Fly's got it all figured out: if he can calm everyone down, stop people from making mistakes and generally keep the peace, no one has to get hurt or arrested.  Simple? Ha!  It's never that simple! Maybe the Fly should have called police when he had the chance ... ?"


IN OTHER NEWS ("11/23/2015"):
Issue #3 is finished! Its not perfect, but its done, for all to see and judge accordingly.  Woof.. I'm not sure what to say, except for what's in the notes...

Notes:
-Wednesday: Issue #3: Director's commentary
-Next Monday: Intermission
-2 Mondays from now: ISSUE#4!  Are you excited?! I AM!!!

The Crimson Fly #42: Man, I messed up...

                   


Vol. 01
Story: Issue #3: "The Wrong Choice" (#42)

This Week: Well, that's it for Issue #3! Eyuergh, That's a depressing note to end on, but as you've probably gathered by the first two issues, the Crimson Fly stories are kinda bittersweet in their endings... ...As well as starting and ending on rooftops, and running from the right side of the law... There's a surprising amount of unintentional running gags, huh.  Don't worry about the Fly; Issue #4 (and by extension, Volume #01) will end on a happier note!

IN OTHER NEWS (November 9th, 2015):
Yay! Issue #3 is done! Woo! Next week will be the compilation movie (for those of you following my Youtube Exploits)! After that, there's the Issue #3 intermission, and after that, Issue #4 begins! See you next week!

IN OTHER NEWS (November 2nd, 2015):
Oh man! I'm sorry everyone! Last week was a little bit of a wash, and so I didn't get as far as I should have by this point.  Still, rather than be late, here are the rough bits of #40. I should be done with the cleanup by the end of the day and render this moot, but its still a bit of a black mark. Again, I apologize, and hopefully it won't happen again! Sound, first thing tomorrow; I need to pass out and re-attach my hand...
