Just wanted to share a shred of history with you.  
This fantasy world was released online in 2005...   This was before the Kindle was invented, and self-publishing was still looked upon as shameful and impossible to succeed in. This was the environment as I took the story of Wendell and created comic books. It was my fathers idea, to be totally honest.   The comics were in PDF format, and readers had my permission to print out as many copies as they liked--so long as they did not alter or sell them. From my WantedHero.com website, I sold ¢.97 downloads through Paypal to anyone I could find (the internet was a LOT younger--and smaller--at that time).  

What happened?

  By the end of the first year, I'd gained readers in over 60 countries. The visiter count was somewhere slightly over 750,000 by December that same year.   To this day I still don't know how that happened, but people seemed to like the story. Readers apparently didn't have a problem with downloading a file and printing it off to read. Still amazes me to this day.   Wish it was still that easy.   Those are the original covers below. I thought you might enjoy seeing them after all these years.   I still sell copies of the original comics, which you can find by clicking right here for just $5.   Enjoy!

I read now everything and have to say just one thing: You Are a genius. This story is great, funny and well written. The artstyle is gorgeous as well! Have you more comics available? I would like to know what will happen after the 13, chapter.

Awwwww, you made my day. Thank you for that.   SO glad you like the comics. Unfortunately, I was in a car accident and my hands were damaged, which is why the comics stopped.   My next step is to get the main series written (on book #8 right now) and THEN I have plans to m ake the comics once more....but in COLOR! wooHOO.   Hope you'll stick around and enjoy the ride, Soulwing!   ...and you realize you can get the first novel for free, right? Why not give the 'full & correct' storyline a taste?   You might like it even more. (wink)
