Post-Ballroom GND. So Jareth says Sarah has a magical "concussion".... and such things typically involve short-term memory loss. Whoops?

203 deviants said Well, Jareth's karma metre being where it's at - on that topic.... that'd be cruel and ironic yet narratively satisfying.

Hey guys

So I participated in the (inter)national challenge issued by the Angoulême BD&comics festival, that is, drawing a 24page comic on a set theme over a 24hour period, 3pm to 3pm WHEEE MADNESS. I'd only gotten 13 pages done last time I participated. A bunch of other local artists and art students did it in a lock-in type situation here in Lyon and it was good sleep-deprived fun (getting too old for this shit though).
I fluffed up and didn't make it in time to sign up to appear on the official website, unfortunately. (but by all means check out the weird and wonderful talents there!) And I "only" got 20 pages done - though this year's rules of engagement were actually... kinda blah and easy? anyway.
But I had a blast and I am rather proud of my little exercise.

Obviously that left me no time to wrap up GND page for this week BUT I'm slapping a quick translation on the pages and uploading them here in a new folder, so you get a brand new complete short story comic. I'll complete the upload and add some explanations and navigation buttons this weekend.

Spent a couple hours today rereading GND from the beginning - and it's so very very perfect and wonderful, and thank you!

On a slightly related note....although I'm sure you have a million other things going on - do you think you'll ever finish the T-Shirt Retaliation fix? :D

Have you seen the movie Mirror Mask? It's like Labyrinth but with Neil Gaiman instead of David Bowie, and a daughter saving her mom instead of a sister saving a brother. It's excellent and seems like your sorta thing.

So........ a new Labyrinth movie is apparently in the works? They just hired a screenwriter.

Thoughts?

Just wanted to say that after years of being away from this website, I had to come back and reread the entire comic. GND popped into my head when I first heard the news, and I felt it was a gentler way of remembering the Goblin King (my first introduction to Bowie), compared to the overwhelming number of remembrances across the web. Getting lost in your story this past week was the perfect way to say goodbye. Thank you.
