Drama! Excitement! Intrigue! Wait...what's all that doing in *my* comic?!?
The original idea for Helmet was to have her story run as a "side comic", done in more traditional comic style, to the collected webcomic. It involved an origin story, a whole new cast of characters...all kinds of craziness. Then I started working on Red Skirts. Then I started getting pro work. Then I started realizing I had other stories I wanted to tell and different mediums I wanted to try. The project, as they say in the jargon, was "scrapped".
There *may* or *may not* be a new strip up next week. I've got it ready to go but I'll be on vacation next week (some small-time convention is happening in San Diego. Doubt you've heard of it...) and may hold off posting it until I get back.
