to the Prologue to Nether: the Age of Maga. This prologue
was originally going to appear in the printed comic in the
form of various flashbacks, but as I continued to produce
the pages of the comic, I realized that much of the background
story should be seen ahead of time.
to accomplish two things by showing you this prologue: first,
to introduce the world of Nether to you - I have been constantly
in production for the last six years, scripting, mapping,
sketching, and plotting a complex world that I hope you
will enjoy exploring; and second, to maintain my own enthusiasm
for the project by updating this prologue monthly... or
at least, trying to...
The style of illustrations that follow the INTRODUCTION
is varied, depending on what is going on that week - how
much time I have, etc. The focus is not on the artwork here
- the illustrations are rough sketches in places. You get
this industry, it is easy to lose heart in the wake of declining
sales and discouraging rejections from struggling publishers,
so when you are done reading the prologue,
give me some feedback.
I would like to know what you did and did not enjoy.
Thanks very much. If this still wasn't enough for you,
please take a look around at the other features listed at
the bottom of the page.
