Read ETCZ page by page

----------

Some of you might remember, but I've been working on a published comic as volunteer work in a French magazine called Mangue. I'm currently working on my sixth issue, which is chapter 5 (the first chapter was published in halves because it's so huge).

But there are some good/bad news? Good for people online at least! See this is Mangue's last issue, so I was told to finish ETCZ online. WHICH IS KIND OF IRONIC SINCE I'M NOT EVEN DONE WITH THE PROLOGUE YET. *CRY* Everyone else is finishing up their stories for this issue.... And there I am, working on the prologue's fifth chapter.

ANYHOW because of all of this, I can finally post this online. I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR YEARS.

For a number of reasons, I'm going to be publishing chapters all at once. Don't worry though; as a general rule, they're about 16 pages long so it's not a very long read (and you shouldn't wait a whole year between releases either!)

Before you comment on this I'd like to say that this chapter is pretty old. I started it on January 1st 2009, so critiques might not be all that accurate of my current level. I'd still love to hear them out, though; just keep that in mind! c:


The bonus section includes other art and stuff that was published alongside with this chapter.



Every page in here was done using Sakura pigment liners (0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 0.8, 1.0 and brush if you must know the specifics), a white gel pen, liquid paper and sometimes sharpie markers. It's all on 8.5 x 11" normal printing paper and all done in winter 2009 uvu

I WISH YOU COULD also the other day I learned the US internet isn't charged by how much you use it? This is so unfair. OTL

Yeah, it's just a flat rate per month. They like to cap how much you can use, though.

here they charge according to what you're allowed to download and upload, so if you're on internet every day, the base price is already not enough. And that base price is 30$. ;7;;;

Et à chaque fois que je vais à une convention, je vais à la table de mangue pour voir si il y a un nouveau tome 8D
Vraiment, ETCZ est mon histoire préféré, et je dois dire que si le dessin ne me plait pas au départ, je lis pas, so keep up the good work, tu dessine comme une pro et ton histoire est vraiment cool.

L'année passé j'ai cherché comme une dingue, mais je t'ai pas vu, là cette année, je vais redoubler mes efforts à l'otak pour te trouver.

J'espère, c'est pas tout le monde qui est capable de faire une bd et de la continuer. Ça demande beaucoup de travail et de persévérance. Vraiment, j'attend avec impatience la suite.

Awesome pour le hint 8D Can't wait to read it ;)

FINALLY. WRAAUHG. I love your traditional comics, oh man. ; v;

That's kinda weird that the magazine is being discontinued though. Especially for 5 issues? That's not that much at all. xD; But that's awesome that they gave you permission to post it online! You know I've been looking forward to reading this for like, years. <3 Can't wait to read the rest of the chapters!

SOMEHOW I KNEW YOU'D BE WAITING FOR IT HEHEHE ;V; That means so much to me you have no idea *SOBS HAPPY TEARS*

And yeah, it's going to stop at its 7th issue because the guy taking care of the money things screwed up the files and they're losing so much money that they're better off starting anew instead.

Chapter 2 should be up this week, and the next ones the week after or something; chapter 5 will be up at the end of the summer and then I'll update whenever from there after ;v;

And eeee~ Can't wait to read it! <3
