Off to Another Adventure


AKA the comic where St. Elred's hopes are DASHED once again.

That... my friends... is that! The story for Mindless Walkabout is complete! Woo. Traveller has a destination, he has traveling companions, he has a picture of some dude in a spiky helmet. Will he find Dragomir? CAN you find somebody who's, you know, dead? Questions needin' answers, that's what these are.

This is not to say, of course, that Mindless Walkabout is DONE. Oh no. It will, instead, turn into what I had ORIGINALLY envisioned: a stupid, silly look at the world of Tales of Elsewhere (T.O.E, thanks Steewpid!). I quickly came to the conclusion that Mindless Walkabout was eating up too much of my time, hence the rather abrupt interjection of SRS PLOT when they got to the desert. I'm not happy with the pacing, but what can ya do.

Consequently, new Mindless Walkabout strips will now appear on Tuesdays and Thursdays, rather than Monday-Wednesday-Friday. These strips will FLOUT the semi-serious tone that's developed over the last few weeks, and instead focus on Traveller's escapades in many and sundry lands as he looks for Dragomir. The comic format will also change, either to a single-panel format with narration describing what's happening at the bottom (think The Far Side), or to a dual-panel format that shows the beginning of an event and the inevitable, disastrous conclusion. Traveller can cause nothing less with his idiocy, and with more time to work and plan I think the quality of the art in these catastrophes should improve - something that's troubled me throughout my time on Mindless Walkabout.

(Drawing a webcomic is HARD. Who would have thought?)

Thanks to all youse folks for sticking around this long. May the adventures of Trav, Plato and V...vvvvv... that rat thing, continue to entertain.
