Comic description

The oldest of my webcomics that I still allow to see the light of day, The Lives of X!Gloop was made in 1989-1992. Inspired by Moebius, it chronicles the life, death and lives of a man and his friends, condemned to return to the world a thousand times.

Wellp, I think my 45-year-old-self has fixed this old art from my 21-year-old self up pretty nicely.

This is not a prank!

Today, April 1st, I have comics updating on six different ComicFury sites. Some of these are archival works that are in reruns or are being republished after falling off the web. Others have new or at least revised pages. They differ widely in tone and subject matter.

In addition to the comic you're reading, the following comics are updating today:

Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan resumes remastered reruns after almost two years. The storyline Feral starts today with revised pages.

Spun Off has its first new update in almost a year. Alternating between character-driven storytelling and goblin dick jokes, it, er, picks up after a section of character-driven storytelling.

Abúi's Travels updates with the first page since December. There's more coming as our heroine is about to leave the planet Tyrion for her home…

Chronicles of the Witch Queen has been updating daily since early March, and updates today with the 32nd page of the storyline "Alcydia", written by Geir Strøm and drawn by Daniel Østvold.

White House in Orbit has been updating daily since February 16, and updates today with the 8th page of the storyline "Der Fliegende Engel", written by Geir Strøm.

And with this one, I prove that none of my comics are ever truly over...

Yes! It's a new page! I'm on a short vacation and I'm taking the time to crank out as many comics as possible based on what was still in my files before my vacation started. At this point, I cannot guarantee that I'll come close to finishing this - we'll just have to take it one step at a time.

This page and whatever pages will follow are a collaboration between my 20-year-old self, who drew a version of this in 1992, and my current, grizzled 44-year-old self. 20-year-old me worked in black and white and used draughting pens to ink. 44-year-old me works in color and uses digital tools almost exclusively. The original version of this fizzled out after about five pages. The new version may do the same, or not. I don't know. As we go along, I expect to deviate more from the originals anyway, so I'll gradually get to the stage where I'm on my own.

That is exactly what I like about all of X!Gloop despite the art being mostly terrible. It's also why I've made several attempts over the past decades at adding new stories. This is now closer to happening than it has in a long time.

It'd be interesting if this story could get picked up somehow. It has a raw, manic energy that compensates for the semi(?) incomprehensibility of the plot.
