001







I've been a fan of MtG for a decade or so and have been using the internet for almost the same span of time. I stumbled upon webcomics a few years later on. The advent of MtG related webcomics didn't really occur to me until 2007 when i stumbled upon UGMadness. I then came upon other MtG related webcomics' along the way but one thing i've noticed is that most of them focused on the gameplay aspects of the game and although they feature a couple of Flavor related topics it's quite rare and mostly few. Then came one of the greatest changes that occured for the Continuity followers of MtG (i.e. The Mending). I am one of those who were against this change and i've found some people who share the same sentiments.

From one of those peoples' posts over forums is a script from Eid. At first i thought it was just a funny piece of work so i kept note of it. A year or so later MtG's Creative unit the one mostly responsible for maintaining MtG's Continuity just kept on making some really nice decisions and ideas for a webcomic of some sorts just kept coming in. Finally after that long of a period i decided to go with a Webcomic that focused on MtG's Continuity and other Vorthos related stuff and was able to get some help from some fellow Continuity followers MORT and Eid.

This first comic page is from that script that inspired this project to be done that was made by Eid. I never knew that making a webcomic was so demanding, i take my hats off for those people who came before with MtG webcomics like the renowned guys from UGMadness.

For now i ain't going to be finalizing a release schedule because there are other things that are occupying my time and is currently facing some personal hurdles here and there. But for now we are targeting a bi-monthly release starting July (if all things go well for me :P ). Hopefully i would be able to go making webcomics to the point that i could deliver at least once a week. So to make sure that you get updated with future releases, i highly urge you to subscribe on our RSS FEED by [CLICKING HERE].

Also, excuse the fact that this webcomic is on Blogspot I've decided to do so for fail-safe purposes. For now i cannot afford my own personal hosting, i might probably get a domain but i think putting this webcomic on Blogspot will be beneficial for archiving purposes. I mean i have seen a couple of webcomics which sites you cannot access anymore (making their comics the same) due to the fact that they took down their personal hosting for their own personal reasons and wouldn't want to go back and put it on some free-hosting place for future access.

So there, hope you enjoyed this first outing of ours. :P If you have comments or suggestions, do comment on this entry we'd like to hear what you think. :)

Anyway, I like it! Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see the next one to see if your going for storyline or 1-2 jokes. I am guessing story line.
