I'm closing down the Omnitarium website.
It's served it's purpose, and now sits like an infrequently visited gravestone of a distant relative. You didn't hate them, but you were not as close as you might have been.
Heavy handed metaphors aside, the site has run it's course, and I am going to slowly change it over to a new and improved Monkey Pipe Studios website.
Something clean and crisp.
I hope to use the new site as a catch-all home for all the titles coming out from our stable in the coming years - The Hero Code, Omnitarium, Department O, Intranauts and The Black Wraith.
Ideally I'll be able to post a page a week from each series, on subsequent days of the week, so a regular run of updates throughout the week.
I really do think that, as a new creator, it is very important to walk before I run, to put the work out into the world, and let it find it's fan base - comics in front of eyes.
This is all going to take some time, which I am starved of at the best of times, so it will be a slow process. But I'm a patient man, and the longer it takes, the more pages I'll have in the bank.
Once an issue is completed, I would then make a single issue of it available to purchase.
Once a story is completed, I would make a trade available.
I'm a big fan of the digest sized trades of Omnitarium which I recently had printed through the excellent ICGeeks. Slightly smaller than standard comic books, there is something pretty tidy about them.
Comics into hands.
Couple of questions:
1. Should I revisit the Omnitarium series and have it coloured for this new launch?
2. What do people think of the Monkey Pipe Studios logo?
Thanks, all... keep watching the skies!
