Some of you may recall I had a Twitter account for Charisma Epoch and that a few years back and that I kicked it off by “live tweeting” the events of Chapter 4: Bad Karma as seen from Charisma’s somewhat self absorbed perspective. It was a fun thing to do and I eventually collected it into @Charisma_E Tweets.
What I’m working on now, as part of the various publications I’m putting together for the Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art’s ‘Zine Fair in late May (which is part of the Sydney Writer’s Festival) is compiling those tweets of Charisma’s into a small 40 page book titled #dragonslayer. Admittedly I have edited and rewritten a lot of the original material, added stuff and deleted other bits, and it only covers the events to the end of April – but I’m hoping the overall effect will be a much better read that will make sense to anyone not already familiar with Charisma, Magellan or Bad Karma.
There will also be additional artwork. I dashed out a few twitpics at the time and I’ll be adding several more selfies and ‘secret candid’ pics to the mix. As much an incentive for me to get them finished in time, those pics will be appearing in the voting incentive spot over the coming month… twice a week! To see the first pic – Guys in my year: hot-2-not? – all you need to do is vote for Magellan at Top Webcomics.
More news on #dragonslayer soon!
