I like actiony stuff.
Prior to embarking upon Charlatan as a 6-issue miniseries (with aspirations of becoming an ongoing series), I first wanted to work up a 10-page preview–sort of a “pilot” for Charlatan that would see how the major characters looked in action. This is Zeu’s original cover for “Charlatan #0” which shows Augie, Mary, Lucy and hints at a major character who will soon show up in our online pages (hint, hint).
As shared before, about 6 weeks ago I began to put Charlatan pages on this site as a webcomic with new pages posted on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Since starting this foray into webcomickery, the first 12 pages of Charlatan Issue 1 have been posted along with a breakdown of how the new beginning differs from the original series beginning (link HERE).
To date Charlatan has received almost 1300 page views and it has been great to be able to share the story with new readers. I am especially psyched about the next few weeks worth of page updates as we are about to turn a corner where the action sequences get “turned up to 11.”
Also wanted to share a couple of other places you can access Charlatan on the Internet:
So Many Great Webcomics, So Little Time….
What has been really interesting and eye-opening in this process, though, is how many really great comics I have come across while putting Charlatan on the web. I realize I am just scratching the surface of what is out there, but here are just a few webcomics whose stories have honestly captivated me as a reader and fan:
Insufferable by Mark Waid and Peter Krause on Thrillbent.
reMIND by Xeric grant winner Jason Brubaker on Comic Rocket
Trekker by Ron Randall on Comic Rocket
So in between bi-weekly doses of Charlatan, you may want to give Insufferable, reMIND or Trekker a try.
