More Garfield Insanity

Wednesday, 27 May, 2009 | Posted in Lightning Made of Owls, Square Root of Minus Garfield by David Morgan-Mar

Square Root of Minus Garfield is going gangbusters, thanks to readers sending in lots of cool submissions! So much so that we’re increasing the update frequency from 3 to 4 times a week. You’ll now get an extra dose of Garfield wackiness on Thursdays. Enjoy!

We also have quite a few Lightning Made of Owls strips buffered at the moment, which is good, but we want to wait just a bit longer before we try increasing its update frequency as well.

Owls updates changing

Monday, 16 March, 2009 | Posted in Lightning Made of Owls, News by David Morgan-Mar

The buffer of submissions for Lightning Made of Owls has slowly been being whittled away by our relentless five-a-week update schedule. To give the buffer a chance to recover, we’re changing the schedule to three updates a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Hopefully this will better match the ongoing rate of new submissions.

And in case that’s too subtle a hint: We need more submissions! Unleash your comic creative urges and send us your results!

Lightning made of an owl

Or, an owl made of lightning. Or something.

A few of us were drafting the new Magic: The Gathering set, Shards of Alara – and were astonished to see the motif employed in the artwork of this card: Gather Specimens.

One can only assume that it’s Ambrose we see wearing the blue wizard garb in the background.

Owls coming out of the walls

We have enough strips from contributors that we’re boosting the update schedule for Lightning Made of Owls to three times a week. We’re adding Monday to the Wednesday and Saturday updates.

But we are always going to need more comics! So if you’re thinking about contributing, get cracking!

More of the tedious gruntwork for guess who? I toil late into the night to bring you:

The first comic for Lightning Made of Owls has gone up!

We’re planning to update twice a week for now (Wednesdays and Saturdays), until we see how fast contributions come in. If the buffer starts building up, we’ll increase the update frequency to suit.

Owls cast finalised – start drawing!

Sunday, 16 November, 2008 | Posted in Lightning Made of Owls by David Morgan-Mar

We’ve finalised the initial cast list for Lightning Made of Owls. You can see the six primary characters here.

Now it’s time to get to work and make some comics! Send your comics to us and we’ll queue them up. Hopefully we will start publishing strips next weekend.

Meanwhile, we’re still working on the site, tidying up the formatting, coding, and design, so expect some changes over the next week.

User-created comic: Lightning Made of Owls

Saturday, 8 November, 2008 | Posted in Lightning Made of Owls by David Morgan-Mar

We have a name and a new page for the user-created comic we announced a few days ago:
Lightning Made of Owls.

Yes, that’s the weird phrase we came up with a few days earlier, with no idea beyond “this is a weird phrase that we should share with the world”. Later we were sitting around brainstorming names for the new comic project, and someone yelled, “I know! Lightning Made of Owls!”

Do two half-baked ideas make a fully-baked idea? Only time, and you, will tell.
