The Crimson Fly, Issue #02: "The Trial run"

                   


"Being a new superhero, the Crimson Fly doesn't know the full extent of his powers and decides to spend some time getting to know them.  Will a nosy security guard and a nearby robbery ruin his training time?"


IN OTHER NEWS (June 29th, 2015):
Its finally here! Issue #2 in its entirety.  Just like Issue #1, the video for this was done about a week after the comic was, but I made some changes to make for better reading (such as adjusted pacing 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!

Also, next Monday will be the wrap up video to Issue #2, and Wednesday will have the trailer for Issue #3! I hope you're as excited as I am!

The Crimson Fly #27: "Oh, Snap, is that from the Dumpster?!"

                   


Vol. 01
Story: Issue #2: "Testing, 1-2-3" (#27)

This week: The Crimson Fly survives the first test of his powers, and gets some "souvenirs"to match! Ew.

STATIC COMIC HERE:

IN OTHER NEWS (July 20th, 2015):
And that's it for Issue #2 of The Crimson Fly ("Testing, 1-2-3"/"The First Test")! On Wednesday, the complete video version of Issue #2 premiers on Youtube, followed by an Issue #2 wrap-up on Monday of next week (Aug 3rd), and a trailer for Issue #3 that Wednesday(Aug 5th). See Ya then!  PS, if there's any questions you ever wanted about the Crimson Fly or the author, drop in the comments and I might answer them next week!

PSS (Edit: 7/28/2015): If you hit "Next," you might notice that you've been re-directed to an error page (which normally doesn't happen). This is because I created the post for tomorrow's compilation video upload and set a link to it for tomorrow when it goes live.  However, because the post isn't "live," it technically doesn't exist yet. This is because I'm going on a trip to a family reunion and will be on the road tomorrow.  I figured it was better to deal with the devil of having this link be broken today (and automatically fixed tomorrow), rather than missing tomorrow's post (which would suck more). Sorry for the inconvenience everybody!

The Crimson Fly #26: "Please-Work, Please-Work, Please-Work...!"

                   


Vol. 01
Story: Issue #2: "Testing, 1-2-3" (#26)

This week: The Crimson Fly survives a brush with Death of his own making! At least he knows the wings work (sort of)!

STATIC COMIC HERE!

IN OTHER NEWS (July 20th, 2015):
One more Strip and we're almost done with Issue #2! How did that happen?!  Who cares? Issue 2 is almost done! Some other stuff of note:

  • There's a comments section underneath each strip.  If you've got thoughts on each strip, I'd love to hear them! Stay constructive though.
  • In relation to the above, I've been pondering creating a forum.  What do you guys think? Either drop a comment, or leave a reply in your social media of choice (see links below)
  • I applied for (and received) permission to post ads through Project Wonderful on this site (though it looks like I need to do some tinkering to get it to work).  CF doesn't generate a lot of money (not through the site, anyway) and I'm hoping some ad revenue will change that (eventually, once more people start visiting)
  • There was something else.... Oh yeah! Next week, Issue #2 finishes! And to celebrate, there'll be a "complete" version uploaded to YouTube next Wednesday (to coincide with, but not compete with next week's strip!)  In the meantime, I'll be releasing select strips from Issue #2 as promos on Wednesday and Friday. I hope you're excited; I am!
  • Still feel like I'm forgetting something... let me know in the comments!

The Crimson Fly #25: "This was a bad idea..."

                   


Vol. 01
Story: Issue #2: "Testing, 1-2-3" (#25)

(Comments - at the bottom)

IN OTHER NEWS (July 20th, 2015):
Well, "B-More into Comics" (a mini-con in Baltimore, MD's "Wind Up Space") was this past weekend, and it was a lot of fun! I had business cards! Yay! (stay tuned for the process post for that next week)

Also, check back on Wednesday (July 15th) for the trailer for the Issue #2 completed video (Wednesday, July 29th)! Also Yay!
...
Yay!

Its the trailer for the Complete issue #2 of the Crimson Fly. Check it out!  Also, because a lot of the buzz died down the last time I did an issue trailer after the trailer was released, I've decided to do something special: I'm going to release three strip videos next week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to get you guys good and pumped for the release of Issue #2. What do you think of that?! Awesome, right?! IT TOTALLY WILL BE!!!

Issue #2: Testing, 1-2-3 (#24)

This Week: Sometimes you just gotta cut and run. What happens to the Crimson Fly when there's no way out?

STATIC COMIC LINK!

IN OTHER NEWS (July 6th, 2015):
Well... This happened. Woo!  Also, for my American readers, HAPPY POST-4TH-OF-JULY MONDAY! I understand that that was a thing, too, this weekend. So, what's next? Well, "B-more into Comics" is happening this weekend (Saturday, July 11th) at the Windup Space in Baltimore, MD (get it? "Baltimore -> B-more" FUNNY PUN IS FUNNY). I'm not going to be vending (yet. Its too early), but I am going to be hanging out and chilling with the cool peeps who will be vending their wares, and who you should totally be checking out (if you're in the area... and/or have a TARDIS). If you're coming out, I'll see you then!
