2 more down, roughly six more to go making it a proper chapter release. I try and keep a release to approx 8 pages, making the interlude a little bonus.
Looking back at DEATH NOTE, that story had a dreamlike quality whereas EXPLODER is more about movement, I’ve been thinking about the role of such pages with regards to Dane; not sure.
‘ve updated the CRIME WEBCOMIC DIRECTORY listings to include filtering, may be bugs and not fully tested but provides an extra tool to get to the right content as a reader.
Current cats: ALL | PULP | NOIR | HARDBOILED | ACTION | MODERN | FUTURE | COMEDY | ANTHROPOMORPHIC
Needed to get something online, so rather than posting the complete chapter, I’ve posted the first four pages, it breaks at a logical point and serves as a bridge between pt1 & the soon to start conclusion.
No cover art so the link starts us on the last page of pt1. http://www.theblackgates.com/binary?page=52
I feel the need to post an update to reassure that there is work in progress.
There are plenty of pages to be added to complete exploder, but after
one more page of art I’ll look to release the next few pages.
Edit – colouring, text and export to come.
Too long to wait

I haven’t made much progress with Exploder-art due to the high volume of paid work that is brilliant money wise, but has stolen all my energy to manage and output. Mostly. If I’m honest there were a
couple few of ‘do it tomorrow’ days which I now regret.
I have another couple of weeks to push through, its the easter break here (4 day weekender), but I’m back in to work.
Which sucks because the next page has a sledgehammer. I might just get drawing to spite myself for making this post.
Back in on the art – straight continuation from the last released page.
/Now with art. Originally I was going to get stuck in straight away, but with a online slots gap between releases have added a slight intermission.
Had the guts of a new KINGDOM story down on the POS laptop when BOOM. Hadn’t backed up to dropbox yet. Going to try and grab it off the HDD, but this thing is O-L-D, for the geeks its a 20GB ide [!]
Not a paper guy, paper is for scrawls and notes. Tablets don’t cut it, need the keys.
So, pending retrieval onto EXPLODER story, art. Need to design Ostapchuk-a-like. Google it.
Spent the evening streamlining the directory page. Now easier to update and re-order.
Revised the EXPLODER dialogue for clarity. Kane’s role is now about parallel to the ships captain in Prometheus, but one pane was never going to be enough for him to shine.
