I’m not quite sure how I came across Thistil Mistil Kistil – I was looking for something else entirely. I swear. Yet there it was: lurking in the Google halls, waiting to be discovered. The tale of a dead viking and his adventure with Loki.
The artwork is very stylized and rather reminds this would-have-been historian of medieval artwork; things from the era it’s set in. The chapters are short but sweet, and the plot thickens as our hero finds himself dead, brought back to life, yelled at by the gods, and ultimately on a quest to find Loki and restore certain items of power… as it were. I really don’t want to give too much away. How about you visit it at: http://tmkcomic.depleti.com/ and we can all have a cup of tea over it later?
In other news, chapter 8 of Akashik has sweetly come to a close – which means it’s time for me to do the usual errand of preparing it up for the printed version for those of you who like that sort of thing. Because this is chapter 8, I’m also under pressure to do a second errand for the second time: preparing the files up for the 4 chapter print book! Woo hoo! How very exciting.
If you visit the Akashik page, you’ll notice a text link in the upper right talking about how you can help see the 2nd chapter book in print. Well, did you know you can also pre-order your chapter 8 book in there? How about you go there, check the place out, see what’s in it for you.
Looking at the battle of good vs. evil through the eyes of the evil minions has become all the rage these days. We have those adorable dead and alive butterfly minions from The Venture Brothers. We have Minions for Hire… and another little gem I enjoy from time to time, Minion Comics.
What I liked the most about this one, the point that actually drew me in, was our main guy became an evil minion because he didn’t really have a choice financially. He had a clean record, for the most part, but was guilty of one act of stupidity. Just one. No one would hire him, no matter the job or how low he was willing to go. What are you going to do when you’re trying to learn from your mistake but society won’t give you that chance? What else?
It’s quirky, definitely adult, and the artwork is superb. Here, take a peek:

And on to other news: 10 Confessions & a Kiss. Main website has received a small revamp: http://10confessions.com – nothing major. It’s not for free on the web anymore, so it’s not like there’s anything going on over there besides the remaining fund drive and an RSS of this blog. But it’s prettier. I like pretty. 🙂
My plan with 10 is that when it’s completely done, then I’ll put it for free again. So I have to finish the tale first. In the meantime it will be available through e-book sources and whatever else I can do. That will help fund things so I can keep going. (It takes money to live after all.) But. One thing atta time.
As a small note: the Paypal scene has been augmented with Alertpay and WePay. I can’t vouche how good WePay is yet, but they did answer an issue I had immediately when I emailed them. That’s a big plus. Hrm. And Paypal isn’t holding any payments I may have gotten for work 2 days in a row. So maybe my email to them worked as well. In either case, we carry on. Positively, if we can.
