27th Jan 2014, 3:14 AM Changes and improvements...

I thank all of you who have commented, your words are encouraging! I LOVE that you're enjoying the story, in spite of some of the somewhat iffy art.  The truth is I hate drawing, and it shows--I rushed through the first few issues. My apologies. As I've gotten deeper in, I've taken my time more but there is still room for vast improvement--and you will see this in the coming months, especially in the next arc, 'The Five Corners Of The World' (issues 13-17). This arc will take on us on a tour of the world--a world of superheroes, the supernatural, and super-science. I will have to draw some STRANGE things, as we visit some interesting locations, and I want it to look awesome. I promise to have each issue uploaded the 15th of every month, so I don't see myself getting off-schedule. Just expect to be a bit more satisfied with the look of the book in the months to come.

Again, thanks for enjoying the book and expressing it. Sorry there was no Inferno at all this issue, but you'll get a good dose of him next month, along with our favorite German fighter-clone...and we'll get a look at some of the other villains who plague the Ill world (and an in-depth look at them in The Ill #16, as we visit The Dregs, the gritty area of Freemantle that is home to Oneman)!

Stay fresh, people.

...Yeah, so no Inferno this issue...don't worry, you'll get plenty of him next month, and some solo Inferno action in certain future issues. And we'll get around to Millie next issue, also--but that doesn't mean she'll be returning to our cast (hint, hint). I've enjoyed this storyarc, and its importance will become more apparent as we get deeper into the series. The next storyarc is even crazier...I've introduced you to the heroes ('Peace On One Earth), the villains (The Some Like It Hot Foundation)...and in our next arc, beginning in The Ill #13, we will explore the world itself in The Five Corners Of The World!

More on that soon...thanks for coming back, I only wish you'd comment, friend.

Hope you're digging The Ill #8, it's one of my favorite issues so far. There's bits and pieces here and there that will play out into MUCH bigger things in upcoming issues, as we make our way to The Ill #31. I've been toying around with adding a 'who's who' page or two after every issue, just some quick background info on some of the heroes and villains we've met so far...the first couple will probably be Knife Master and maybe Truegod. We'll get Phaedra's full origin in the very near future, and we'll learn of Oneman's dead protege, Solitaire. Oneman himself will play a MAJOR role in upcoming events...I will say no more, I'm getting ahead of myself.

Hopefully you'll return next issue for part 3 of the 'The Some Like It Hot Foundation' arc...after this, we'll take a breather for a couple issues and then embark on a journey to The Five Corners Of The World! And what comic-booky fun it will be!

Happy Festivus!



5th Dec 2013, 4:05 AM UPDATE...

Long story short, the guys in the IT department at work were able to repair the laptop, and all is well...aside from the fact that I'm a couple days behind now, and issue #8 of The Ill will be up by Saturday morning (before noon). Hope to see you back here, hope you're enjoying the story. Sorry for the delay, but I'm SO gleeful (I rarely have occasion to use that word) to have the laptop up and running again.

this arc--which will run through issue #10--will focus on the villains. I wanted to depict villains being truly VILLAINOUS, and that's what this arc is about. Next issue a VERY powerful villain--hinted at in an earlier issue--will join the fray, and we'll get a little more background info on the Foundation. Lots of hints and clues of what comes after, also. This is all building up to something fun and different, and I can't wait until we get to the payoff (issue #31)...but this stuff is fun, in the meantime. 


And poor Millie, eh?
