Apologies but my schedule has been overwhelming lately, and I’ve fallen behind in my PROTEGE duties. Hopefully in the next few weeks I can get back on schedule, but until then expect the updates to be a little sporadic.
That’s the not-so-good. The good is, the delays are in part because a number of exciting creative projects I’ve got in the pipeline are moving forward. My new play BURNERS will open in Los Angeles in March, 2017, produced by Moving Arts. BURNERS is set in a dystopian future where insurgent fighters are genetically engineered into human bombs. Additionally I’m writing and drawing a stand-alone comic book tie-in story set in the world of the play. If you follow my tumblr you’ve seen some test art I’ve been working on as I prepare to tackle this project as a writer/artist (yikes).
And then there’s a feature script I sold to an independent production company that is going through the rewrite/development process. It’s a supernatural drama and I’ll keep you updated on it’s progress as it moves ahead (or doesn’t, as is often the case with movies). I mainly want you all to know I’m not slacking… I can’t wait to get back to PROTEGE as soon as possible! — Terence
We’ll be back in action soon, with weekly updates beginning again on Wednesday, November 25. I’m really looking forward to sharing this next phase of PROTEGE as Trane and Allumette travel into dangerous territory to seek out Trane’s daughter.
Also, I was interviewed about PROTEGE by Timothy G. Cramer for his Provocative Praise site. Timothy’s had some very kind words about this webcomic and he’s turned me onto some other great comics with his insightful reviews. Check out the interview and bookmark Provocative Praise for Timothy’s great insights and commentary on storytelling.
I’m swamped, this week’s page is only half-lettered, and I’m about to call it quits for the day (sorry, all, I’m done). But today the collected volume of PROTEGE #1-5 is available on ComiXology, so there’s that! Not only do you get the awesome high-res art of Juan Romera in all its glory, this volume also features an exclusive backup story with art by Kay. Please check it out and/or spread the word!
