Volume 1 is now for sale March 2018
by MK_Wizard

Hello and sorry

I extended the date because this move is taking up more of my time than I thought it would. So much so that I haven't worked on my comic at all and even right now, I'm sick. The same perks will apply though with the first three chapters being remastered and the inclusion of character refs and such.

Thanks for understanding,

Gertrude Jekyll!
by MK_Wizard

Ha! 

Who knew there was an actual Jekyll in history. She ain't no doctor, but she was quite the artist. Maybe I'll include her in my work someday as a distant relative of (Henry) Jekyll. An aunt maybe? Read about her here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gertrude_Jekyll

On Hyde "Not being so bad"
by MK_Wizard

Hey

This is not something I really hide about Hyde (no pun intended), but to be honest, I'm surprised more people don't play up the idea of Hyde being a different kind of good. I'm not saying he has to be saintly, but it always bored me when people take Hyde and make him into a lout for the sake of making him a lout. I totally get that in the original story, that's what he was, but that's just it. That was the original story. I say make your own. One other interesting take I have seen people play up on terms of dual personalities which I think was done in the old manga Black Jack was that the monstrous insane personality which could be considered as the "Hyde" was in fact the personification of the guy's conscience and the true person who one could call was the "Jekyll" was a serial killer.

Let's stop type casting situations and besides, it's a misconception of opposites. You can be night and day yet both are good/bad. It's dull when you follow rules that don't really exist. Why not have Hyde have some good in him? Why not make Dracula into a hero? Why not make a zombie smart and kind? Why? If it's executed well and the bugs are worked out, go for it. Following stereotypes kills imagination from what I see and the greatest crime in fiction is to lose imagination.

That's enough now...
by MK_Wizard

In terms of comic listings that is.

Sorry if my title scared you. I think I did all I could to get my book out there and after some thought, I decided to keep my series as a mostly free to read webcomic. Of course, remasters and the best versions with no interruptions will be for purchase later on. And though it doesn't seem like it, I do have quite a bit of filler and I near the end of at least this arc. I am very happy that all around, I've got quite a few subscribers (which I count in the places beyond Comic Fury as all supporters count) though I am hoping that maybe just maybe I can start making some small change with it too. Hey, it covers my hair appointments or grocery bills.

However, the deal I made with my better half was that I would not go into debt for this comic which I think is not only fair, but also smart. While making a comic series has always been my lifelong dream, it's not my only one. I do want to do other stuff with my life too like travel, watch plays, get in shape and so on. Like Stephen King said, real life inspires fantasy. He was right. Anyway, I digress. I have been making use of free options and honestly, it's been more than good enough. Though someday, I do hope to have a cubicle at a Comic Con one day. Will it happen? Let's see.

-Love, Mary

The Wizard is open for business!
by MK_Wizard

Or starting to rather.

After a lot of contemplation, speaking, information gathering and second opinions, I decided to go with starting a Patreon. That's right folks. I've joined the "P-force". I decided that rather than going with publishers, I want to keep my book, my benefits and my beloved fans as my own. What can I say? I'm monogamist when it comes to what I love. When I fall in love, it's completely and I don't want to give it up. With that said, I don't want to give up all those who supported me. That means I've decided to stay a webcomic writer. And I'm cool wtih that. Heck, I'm absolutly over the moon with that. This is my hobby job after all and we live in the age of the web so being a webcomic writer works out for the best for my lifestyle.

Of course, I'm starting at the bottom with just basic stuff now, but I will work my way up to bigger things with time. For now, I want to pace myself and you guys when you're ready just like I didn't do anything until I was ready.

Love as always and I look forward to doing business with you all,

-Mary
