The Rideon May 5, 2006 at 2:56 am
I think it’s really best Osbourne didn’t get to ride that ride anyway. I don’t think the wheels on that coaster are really going to roll, it would probably have just fallen off the top. Even if they did roll there is no way it was going to have enough speed to make that loop.
I was a short kid so I clearly remember the “you must be this tall to ride” signs. I think by the time I was tall enough I had gained a healthy fear of the ride anyway.
Well, this week was more of a Mon-Wed-Fri schedule but that beats last week. A bit longer on this other comic project I got going, followed up by a much needed vacation, and then working on the book and I should be back to a regular schedule. See, I’m not going to lie to you here, On the Rocks is made out of pure magic, that really can’t just be factory produced. It’s amazing I’m even able to save it to a GIF file and get it onto the internet in a timely fashion at all. So hang in there through the slimmer updates. Check back every day or subscribe to one of the services to the right there to be notified of updates.
Did You Say Book?
Heck yeah I did! I am just a few comics short of putting together the first collection of On the Rocks in print form.
“If you do come out with a book, I have a sincere and heartfelt recommendation for you: PRINT IT IN COLOR!!!!”
Yes, the On the Rocks book will be printed in color. It wouldn’t feel right in B&W, that would be less than what you already have online. So the book will definitely be in vibrant full… er blue and orange if it takes every cent you got.
“Also, youâ€™ll definitely need to find a way to include your daily commentary in the book, because thatâ€™s half of what makes this site so great!”
The commentary would be great, but that would be a lot of full color cost page area for just text. Also, I want the book to be read comic to comic without interruption (I find the commentary more a companion on the web to add to the comic since you only get fed one at a time). Also the commentary would need to be edited down and such. It is something I might do further down the road for a special addition archival collection or something. However, the book WILL have a lot of information from the commentary presented as little factoids as well as a whole new original little comic book style story.
