If you liked Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Sandman...
Well so did the guys who came up with Tart...
So we've got that going for us.
I've always wanted to say something like that. And now I can, and it's true. The world we've worked on creating would not have existed without the years we've each spent individually immersing ourselves in worlds devised by Gaiman, Whedon, Moore, etc.
If we do our job right, comparisons to Buffy will come. Not only do I not run from it, I embrace it. But Tart is not just an ancestor of Buffy, but of Claremont's Rogue and Kitty Pryde (and anyone who read Whedon's Astonishing X-Men knows just how much Joss likes him some Shadowcat). Of Aerin Firehair from Robin McKinley's "The Hero and the Crown" (if you've never read that do yourself a favor and buy a copy for yourself this holiday season). Of Tolkien's Eowen of Rohan and many, many others*.
Now for the bidness: Ludo is making some last changes/fixes to better tell our story through the online format (we added a couple pages to the first issue if you need to know) and we're emailing back and forth across the Atlantic to figure out the best schedule to release our little project.
As of right now we are set to self-publish the first three issues of Tart here. As I said just down the page - go ahead scroll down and see... are you back... no... Now... Okay, good, I missed you - they'll come out in weekly updates of 4 to 6 pages depending on what works best for the story. When we've put up an entire issue, we'll take a breather for a week or two and then start on the next issue.
Why stop at three issues? Well there's good news for that. Ludo will be concentrating on another project with a publisher in France, and we don't want to suck up too much of his time as he perfects that.
Well, for now, that's it...
And sorry Ana, I'd love to tell you where I paraphrased (stole) the line from in the last post, but that wouldn't be fair to the other kids in the class.
*I also liked Knight Rider a lot, but as of yet, there are no plans for a talking car (that Ludo has accepted).
