Hello everyone! I have been creating comics for about forty years by now, and there always has been this pendulum effect. I would start a story and, as I was making it up as I went along, it became very long. Examples of these comics are titles as The Secret of the Dome, Soirée and The Debt. And every time I finished one of those, I had become so fed up with working on the same thing for so long, I vowed to never do a large story again, and I would revert to making short comics, usually six pages long, like The Late Show, Behind the Scenes and Playing along.
But, you guessed it: after a couple of these, I started to feel too restricted and back to the longer story it was! As I said, this went on for forty years, and the reason we set up the New Short Comics page is also because of the swing of the pendulum.
Only this time, I hadn't even finished the larger comic I was working on. Frankly, there were two of them, and you can find them both under New, in New Comics.
They are Amazon Army and IDTSMD, both of them unfinished torso's. And because at the moment, after having made a couple of new short comics, I feel inclined to paint with a bigger brush once more I thought: why not finish one of those? For this, I have chosen the AA comic, so, after five years, we are finally going to see how the confrontation between the Amazons and Casanova will play itself out.
One last fun thing: I had dreamed up the character of Casanova some ten to fifteen years ago. He is a supervillain who has absolute telepathic control over half of the world's population, namely all women.
And although I wasn't under the illusion that this was a highly original concept, I couldn't have guessed that within a few years, two characters would come along at the small screen with almost the same power. The only difference is that they can control men as well as women. They were, of course, the Puppetmaster in the Heroes series, and the Purple Man in Jessica Jones.
Two new pages in the Amazon Army, under New in Comics New, and further updates in New, the Sketchpage, the Combipage and Lunagirl.
