The Crimson Fly, Issue #01: "Who is the Crimson Fly?"

                   


The Crimson Fly is a pulse-pounding, animated series about a masked vigilante stumbling through the ropes of being a superhero.  Can he survive his first night and learn that being a superhero isn't like how its described in the funny books?


IN OTHER NEWS (June 29th, 2015):
Its finally here! Issue #1 in its entirety.  Despite being "done" a month ago, I decided to take the time to make a few changes. First and foremost, music! It felt boring without it, so I did some hunting around Incompetech and Youtube's Royalty-free libraries, and found some tunes. They're not perfect, but they are perfectly serviceable, and I hope to improve on them in the future.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

(PS, those looking for the regular update to the current ongoing storyline can find it here. Sorry for the interruption, but this was too important not to share!)

They're not perfect, but they are perfectly serviceable, and I hope to improve on them in the future. I'm going to give it its own post on this site, slotted between the Issue #01 and Intermission strips (the way navigation works means that I don't have to worry about the post date), so readers can check it out if (for some reason) they don't want to watch it on Youtube. But yeah, check it out, and leave a comment (either below, or on Youtube) telling me what you think!

Vol. 01
Issue #2: Testing, 1-2-3 (#20)

This week, the Crimson Fly discovers that he maybe has a warning sense? I dunno, can't be that great if you figure out out AFTER you get hurt by what it was warning you about

IN OTHER NEWS (06/08/2015):
Oh, man, I am so excited for all the things coming up soon! First up, that update I promised. It was posted last week (To YouTube, not this site, which is why there isn't a break between this week and last week's strip), but I'm putting it here (instead of updating last week) so that you don't have to go back and re-read that post:


Yep! That's what I look like, if you're not subscribed to me on YouTube.  Anyhow, as promised last week, Here is the trailer for the full compilation of Issue #01.  Enjoy!



That's right! That's the trailer for the compiled version of Issue #01, set to be released the Monday of last week in June (June 29th)  It's not so much "new content" as the same, awesome content in a new, dynamic way! Are you excited? You should be!

Also, I'm going to be trying out some new content, so if you're on YouTube, Please subscribe to find out what it is!

The Crimson Fly #19: "Can't a guy die in a dumpster in Peace?"

                   


Vol. 01
Issue #2: Testing, 1-2-3 (#19)

This week, the Crimson Fly discovers that you can survive falling off a building by landing in a dumpster...though he may not want to!

STATIC COMIC LINK!
ANIMATED VIDEO LINK!

IN OTHER NEWS (05/25/2015):

In other, other news, I finished compiling Issues #1 & #2 into animated app and full videos a while ago back, and shared it with some friends.  The feedback I got was positive in regards to the videos, but also sparked a discussion in regards to another Crimson Fly idea I had, which I will be implenting soon in the future.  Nothing drastic (at least, regarding the animated and static comic sites), but it will be a doozy.  I'd hoped to have the announcement ready today, but well, that didn't happen. Stay tuned for updates on Tumblr (http://thecrimsonfly.tumblr.com) and Youtube (http://youtube.com/user/skipperwing). Its going to be awesome (I hope).

Still working on that update, and I'll post it as soon as its done.  You may have noticed that the animated video link is crossed out; There's a reason for that which will be explained in that particular update.
