If you haven’t heard, Alexander Comic is now an Actual Webcomic with an Actual Website (designed in collaboration with my co-workers, Kevin Wilson and Erin Burt) full of hopefully-interesting Reading Material. That’s one more stone added to my Digital Island infinity gauntlet.
Anyway, I still can’t believe it. Alex Comic’s a real thing now, after 3 years of development. It’s finally an entity I can concretely show to people, instead of being this weird floating abstract concept made out of brief pictures and words that I had been yakking on about like a witch speaking in tongues over her prophetic visions. Super grateful for the people who humoured my ramblings and even joined me closely on this ride. You all are the MVPs.
I don’t know how to describe the feeling I’m currently experiencing – it’s like a low-key anxiety mixed with a numbness mixed with a kind of gentle, unshakeable confidence. @_@ The few times I felt this way was the beginning of TWiDI, the start and end of TCM, and when the Eisner nomination popped up in my inbox ages ago. It’s not an uncomfortable feeling, as I’m familiar with it and I’ve talked about it before. But it’s nice to feel it again. Been a while.
