Some enchanted evening. November 15, 2011 Posted by Mookie
Looks like Luna's late sister Amelia had been up to her old tricks. Driving people to suicide to gain money is a Travoria family trait that has missed Luna entirely. Good thing for Dominic, too.

Yesterday I said I'd talk about why I was going to rewrite and redraw the SNOWSONG/SUPERGREG story for an early 2012 collection.

During the arc of that story, I was going through a lot of drama. I'll spare you the details if you weren't around for it as it happened, but basically I moved across the country and tried to put my personal life back together. During the course of all this I fell into a pretty deep depression, and I thought working on Dominic Deegan would be my anchor. Looking back at how the SUPERGREG story turned out, I feel like I should've taken more time off.

I am not unhappy with the themes or decisions made in that storyline. When it's redone there will still be action books, skindex outfits, and Gregory will still say "ABRAKABOOM!" to turn into SuperGreg. What I am unhappy with is the pacing. Really fast-paced action followed by weeks of slow, boring exposition. I think I could do a lot better now, and will try to do so when I rework this comic book flavored tale.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
