On Hyde "Not being so bad"

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...

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.

Cleaning up is hard to do

Yeah

I am getting the first half of my book ready by doing cleanup work on the first four acts and it ain't easy. I suppose that's to be expected when you're trying to do something right and make it decent for selling. I want to make sure that it's perfect so that anyone who buys it gets their money's worth. The only catch is that the cleaned up version is for sale only. It will not and never will be available on the web for free. Sorry. I can't give everything away for free. Art supplies cost money. I have narrowed it down to three places to do publishing and sales with. Patreon, Blurb and Zulu.

Let's see how it all boils down.

Cold season

The not so fun part about fall. When it because, so do sniffles, coughs and such. I am nursing my own one right now. I'll live, but it is a pain in the neck or in my specific case, a pain in the ear. Watch out for bugs and if you already have one, drink lots of tea.

Vote for me!

Life is getting busier and busier

Good evening

As the title states, a lot is happening in my life. A lot of good stuff that I wouldn't have any other way, but it's still keeping me busy and I continue to face the challenge of finishing my book. Plus fall is officially here as the leaves have turned into those gorgeous varying shades of red, yellow and orange and the air is crisp. Good thing I've got plenty of sweaters to wear. Plus, it's also Halloween season which is also fun. I already prepared the candy for the neighborhood kids in advance to get one thing on the list done. Now, I've got just 99 other things to do, ha! Well, like the song says "I'm an adult now". And I've got my better half who's back I need to have as he always has my back. Lastly, I have to see what I am going to be for Halloween. I want to be a witch as I always loved witches and wizards in folklore. The question is, which direction should I go in? Mysterious or glamorous?

What say you?

Hockey Season Started!

Yes, I am a hockey fan.

I guess it comes with being Canadian. There's something so exciting about seeing the players fly across the ice though I love watching it with company best. After all, it's fun rooting for the Habs together and screaming when they score a goal. It will be the third game in the season tonight. I can't miss it!

It's Thanksgiving in Canada so have a happy turkey day if you like turkey that is.

Me, I'm having pizza with the family because we had a huge event yesterday, but that's ok. Thanksgiving with the family is all that really matters so have a lot of fun and take it easy today.

Love

-Mary
