[Edit: Episode 25 is already up, here: koobismo.deviantart.com/art/Ma…
- be sure to check it out!]
As those of you who read the descriptions underneath my comics know, I've been swamped at work lately - horrible crunch time, with little sleep and basically no free time at all, which really hit my publishing schedule hard (seriously, if you can't live off a gallon of coffee and four hours of sleep a day, don't go into game development). We're 2 episodes behind currently, with some incredibly epic stuff lingering on the horizon... Alas, hope is here. Episode 25 will be published tomorrow - on Friday 15th. If the initial reactions of my own personal Mr. Spock (a.k.a. Jeff, our audio producer) are to be believed, this may be the best episode yet, or at least one of the best. Our incredible Miranda (Nat) agrees... And I'm just too tired to form a decent opinion at this point, so I'll just nod and stare blankly on my keyboard for a while.
Once episode 25 is published I'll start preparing for the next one as soon as possible, to get back on the horse and start gaining up on our schedule. I'll also make an effort to get a new journal entry here every week (starting with a special "frequently asked questions" piece a few days from now), to get you informed on everything that's happening in the Marauder Shields world... And that's a lot. From the first interview ever and more official words of support from BioWare and the original ME cast (I love you, guys!), to Comic Con plans and getting new incredible talent on board... It's been a brilliant three weeks.
On a side note, while I'm writing this, the comics have been viewed 981,074 times already. Which means that we're nearing a big event for this series, a MILLION VIEWS. The crew is already preparing something fun to celebrate, as a big thank you to all you beautiful people reading, listening and paying attention to this series... We'll say a bit more once the 1.000.000 viewer gets his butt up in here.
Thank you for your patience. Thank you for all your support, and comments, and suggestions, and passion, and being awesome. Thank you for being there for Shepard, for caring for Mass Effect, for holding the line with Kirrahe and keeping Nihlus alive.
