DAREDEVILS, the choice of a new generation.

This week, we discover that Abigail literally has a trick up her sleeve!  HOLY SHIT we’re the best writers of all time.  UP HER SLEEVE.  This is good stuff people!  Of course she has a little help from the Custer, who has decided to join the fight after listing helplessly for months in the gutters.  Super-fun-note about the SFX we used: Gladoom is an awesome sound effect, and it fits our sound effects naming convention.  GLA is an underwater prefix and DOOM is a bomb sound.  We really do have rules for our sound effect, and we discuss them at length.  Someday we’ll commit them to paper rather than saying things like “No way, asshole!  GLA isn’t the underwater sound it BLOO!”  Fun fact!  Its a stupid argument!

Anyway, back the trick up the sleeve genius level writing:  Just what is the trick that she is deploying?  Well, if you took notice of Abigail throughout the comic, you’ll see she had that cylinder around her neck the whole time.  It’s not something that we just concocted conveniently out of nowhere.  The wrist crossbow is a different story, but that was her up-the-sleeve trick that I mentioned above.

We’re getting close to the final confrontation, so the comic is going to start zipping back and forth between locations willy-nilly soon.  I think we pull it off really well, and looking at the finished pages I think the final two chapters of this beastmonster of a story we’re telling come together awesome.

Pitch Black Day really got a lot bigger than we were planning on originally.  When Matt asked how many pages I thought we could do it in I said 20.  I was wrong.

It is almost time for me to start working on the backmatter for chapter 4.  This time we’ll tackle the Secret Origin of Abigail Singer.  We’ll learn who trained her, what her upbringing was like, and fill in the blanks on her life up to the point where she crossed paths with the DEEP DIVE DAREDEVILS!  This one should throw everyone for a loop, because there is a pretty neat twist in the plot during this backmatter.  Of course it won’t affect the comic portion too much, because we’d never make you actually read anything that doesn’t have pictures and have it count.  Even though I do the art of those parts and it hurts my feelings when you ignore me.

The crew got back from Vegas in one piece.  That Superbowl was a bunk game, but I made some bets that paid off, and the rest of the trip was just what the ThreeOneFive needed to get our juices flowing again.  Well, we’ll get back to work once the hangover ends all the way…

In other DAREDEVILS news, Smilton is churning out pages for the next installment of the DAREDEVILS, and he’s killing it.  We still have to finalize the words on the pages so we’re a ways off from being done with that, but the progress is good.

Some other interesting rumor-type news is that we’re kicking around getting an additional artist to help with the Major storyline that will happen at the end of this year.  The story we have planned is so incredibly epic that if we get it our way, we’ll launch a 4 part story that will span almost 3 years.  That’s huge!  We’re going to go all out, and it will take the combined powers of everyone on the DAREDEVILS team, plus some new faces that will hopefully make the book even better than it is now.

Hopefully I can get the cool DAREDEVILS pin-up colored in for next week so I’ll have some Lunch for you, but this week I’m too bogged down in homework and wedding planning to get anything real done.  Poor me.

That’s the Lunch for 2/9

To the Future,

The DEEP DIVE DAREDEVILS are the Beefy Crunch Burrito of webcomics.
-Evin Dempsey

So there you have it, boyz and girlz.  The story of Holmwood and Van Helsing has played out over the last three backmatters, and now they are both dead.  There are looming mysteries however:  The letter that Van Helsing produced and gave to Special Agent Bumpass, whats that all about?  11 months after it was delivered to him he went nuts, is that why Special Agent Bumpass didn’t want it delivered?  Jehan Bumpass showed up in three backmatters so far, what the heck is her deal?  Why is she so interested in the delivery of the letter, or how the little Holmwood girl is treated after the horrible incident where Arthur went insane?  And just who is that little girl?  There are still two backmatter sections left to go DAREDEVILERS, and the truth will only be told when all is said and done!

The Truth is Out There

  Diving deeper into this week’s page, the whole right side was dominated by the article about Van Helsing’s passing by Montgomery Chum.  Monty is a character we’ve had for a long time, and he’s one that’s likely to show up in all of our works in some form or another.  Originally he was an obituary writer in a series we pitched to Image a long, long time ago.  It got rejectified, but it made it a very long way into the process.  It was our first pitch, and even though we were dashed upon the rocks of failure bluff, we learned a ton of stuff about the industry, and we were hooked.  Matt and I collabo’d on the words of the obituary, and I think it turned out really good.  In the end only the article itself would fit on the page.  I had to chop off most of the headline and the whole masthead, as well as the side story I wrote about a giant ape named Smiley by someone named Stacy Paige (who also was a character in the story with Montgomery Chum).  So here, on the Lunch, I’m going to give you the whole page as I made it.  We’ll talk more when you’re done reading it.

The photo caption is given to Miguel Heistano, who we named after Matt’s brother Mike.  We just changed the last letter of his name to o from d.  Clever.  You’ll also notice that Charles Calvin made two appearances on the page.  That is because I didn’t care, I knew that that  part of the page would likely get covered up, so whatever.  Charley is my dog’s name.  The one that Cup is based on.  This week we got the sad new that he has a cancer inside him and the vets are only giving him six months to live.  So I guess he was on my mind when I wrote the thing.  Argos, one of my two other dogs also made it on there, because hell yeah, dogs.

The newspaper was especially hard to pull off this week.  It required me to use InDesign, which was cool because I haven’t had much exposure to it in the past.  I scanned in a 15 year old paper that I had from when I lived with Matt in the 315 down in Tuscon for the texture.  I also improved the SISX radiogram by adding perforation dots along the side, which I overlooked last time there was one on the page.

The book actually uses the real typography as the real first edition of Dracula, which I’ll post down hurr.

 

I just laid that down on top of the old book and WHAMO.  I added unabridged on it later because it had a whole extra chapter in it, like the American version of A Clockwork Orange (which is my favorite book).

Chapter 4 begins on Tuesday, and we return to comicbook goodness once again.  Danilo really killed this next chapter, which will run for 8 weeks in a row, so get ready for ocho awesomeo weeks in a rizzow.  There is even a week where we will ask for commenter participation!  That’s right.  Matt will spill the beans on that one when the time comes, but it will be a chance for you guys to actually get into the comic in a really cool way.  Anyway, This penultimate chapter will take the DAREDEVILS to their limits, and we’re excited to beam it into your eyes.  We got good stuff coming to you every single Tuesday for the next two months!  We’re not planning any site upgrades or anything for a while, so count on my attention being solely on making awesome backmatter.  While the DAREDEVILS face off against the King of Subsylvania and his minions of the darkest depths, what is next for the characters in the back matter?  And how will it ultimately tie into the main story?  I dunno man.  I’m asking you.

Next week I’ll be in Las Vegas to gamble on the Super Bowl, so I’m not sure if I’ll be making a post or not.  If I do it will be weird and rambling and drunken, and from my phone or iPad.  Last time I live blogged my vacation is was kind of a disaster.  I’ll be betting on the Broncos most likely, because I normally just bet on the underdog.  It usually works out ok, but one year I lost such a heartwrenchingly close bet that I smashed chips into the ground with my fists and threw a chair.  I’m not feeling particularly lucky this year though, which gives my gamblefingers pause.  Plus I have a wedding to pay for, and that shit is EXPENSIVE.  Like, f’real expensive.  $800 for some dickblaster with iTunes to Dj the gig?  That’s the best deal I could find.  You can buy a 60 inch TV for 800 bucks.  Screw it, I’ll pay it.  I’m running out of time.

That’s the Lunch for 1/26

To the Future,

Just keep photoshopping…  Just keep photoshopping…

This week’s page is the first time a non-cover page was entirely my stuff.  I just made a flyer for Van Helsing’s truth session he has planned for the 29th.  I really like this page, because it is where the backmatter really starts meshing with itself and forming a  real story that runs alongside the comic.  While on the surface the last two page might just seem like self service of sorts, but its not, the Van Helsing stuff matters in regards to the main story.  This week sets up the final page in the Van Helsing / Holmwood saga, and everyone who plays a part has been introduced.  The awesome part is that I think this story will take a turn you didn’t see coming later on.  I have a feeling a lot of you have made a guess as to what happens on Tuesday’s page, but can you predict to what ends that will lead to?  The whole thing makes sense, I swear.  I made a flow chat about it.

I’ve done more photoshopping in the last three weeks than I have in a very long time.  Next week I’m going to show you an inside look at what goes in to making all the pieces of what goes on the page during backmatter stuff.  Eventually I’ll get around to doing that for the radiograms as well.  But right now, the Lunch is the flier.  It got covered up somewhat on the page this week.  I want to show the whole thing.

So how does Holmowwod react to this?  He created the organization that Abigail is a part of, and he even headed it up for 24 years.  Its a safe bet he’s pretty protective of it.  But where will his loyalty lie?  With the organization, or with his brother in arms?

Subsylvania here we come, right back where we started from.

2014 is here and the DAREDEVILS are back with some Dracula prose that will ignite your face and chest in a ball of literary hellfire!  This part of the story completes the book backmatter part of Pitch Black Day, and puts a bow on the end of the Lost Chapter of Dracula.  Tuesday we’ll have another book part, and then next Tuesday we’ll have a special surprise prose section!  The Van Helsing story will be completed, and everyone will rejoice.

Then we have 10 pages in a row for you!  Chapter 4 is one hell of a ride.  Joe, Cup, and Abigail captured by the King of Subsylvania; McGinty boarding Dracula’s submarine in hopes of saving his best friend deveraux; and the Custer, damaged badly by the infestation of Vampires floats helplessly beneath the waves.  Your mind will blow out the back of your face due to the complete lack of regard we have for your emotional well being.  The DAREDEVILS will spend the next couple months adventuring all over yo bidness.

Last time on the prose side of things we offered you a decoder code that got you exclusive access to the unaged sketches that Danilo made for the backmatter.  This time I’ma just put ‘em herr.

No Danilo illustration this Tuesday.  Nope, this time I do the whole page from nuts to butts.  That is a real saying that I didn’t just make up.  I can’t really take all the credit for the page though, because Matt really massaged the shit out of the prose and made it better.  Only by a little bit.

Further on down the road this year (like WAY further), we’ll start a second story that will hopefully conclude right around the end of the year.  We literally have every single week booked this year with content of some kind or another.  Exciting!  Thanks to everyone that puts up with the pace we’re putting out content.  We know its slow, and there is SO MUCH story we have to tell, it is frustrating, and you guys keep being awesome about it.  Was that a sentence?  Who cares.  BIG SHOW DOES.

Big Show totally cares.

Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce.  Special orders don’t upset us.  All we ask is that you let us DRINK BLOOD FROM YOUR FACE IN OUR CRAZY FEEDING ORGY ROOM.

That was me riffing off what happened on the page this week, not threatening you.  Relax.  So splash page alert!  Right?  Doc is fully drankin blood from that woman’s wrist while Drac works the neck.  Kinky.  Also her nipple is blasting through her dress which cranks the page up to a FULL PG13 rating.  We don’t often blast nips.  Sure, we’ve had full on terts exposed before, but they had no nips because they were fish lady boobs.  Sedna was topless too, but her hair covered her arctic headlights.

This page was a fight from the start.  We wanted to show Doc being evil and in my original version I had Doc covered in blood having already fed from and killed this woman.  It was too much, so rewrites happened.  Dan wanted it to be a DAREDEVIL that was being fed from, but again too much, so rewrites.  We needed to have him do something horrific, but keep it within reason to keep with the tone.  I’ll speak more about this specific scene at the end of Pitch Black Day.  So until then know it is important.  Everything has a consequence.

I said last week that I would talk about the radiograms, but I’m going to save that until we come back in 2014.  As a metter of fact, I’m going to cut this badboy short and start my holiday early.

Good will towards men.

So about that last page…

I know it wasn’t terribly exciting, hell even the Radiogram on Facebook and Twitter was pretty boring, but it did move our characters into place for the end of the story.  Joe and Cup and Abigail are coming face to face with Dracula finally, and McGinty has tracked Deveraux down to Dracula’s submarine, as the Pitch Black Day is being loaded on to his sub.  In hindsight, what Deveraux is doing is pretty vague, and maybe some dialog explaining that he was loading a rocket on to a sub was needed.  Still, moving into chapter 4, what is going on becomes very clear and readers shouldn’t have a hard time following the action.  Maybe I’m too paranoid.

We added this page because it solved a big pacing issue we made for ourselves.  We needed McGinty to set out on the path he is currently on (tracking down Deveraux) but we didn’t want the last time anyone saw him in Chapter 3 to be when he was dashing away from combat (blowing up that vamps nug was sweet though).  We needed to make it clear what he was doing, which we may or may not have done as I mentioned above.  Shoehorning this scene into another page would have cramped that page too much, and made it a bummer to read, so we decided to put this moment and the moment where Abigail and Joe enter the room on the same page.  It brings both plots to a similar cliffhanger point.

Only one gets the sweet satisfaction on Tuesday though.  Deal with it.

The holidays are fast approaching, and we’re going to take a break after Tuesday’s mega page.  We did this last year too, because breaks are awesome.  I wish I could take a break from the Sunday Bonus Lunch, but I get so many fan letters and pairs of underwear sent to me in the mail every week that I can’t do that to you guys, I mean girls.  We’re going to blast into the new year with another stretch of uninterrupted pages the likes of which the Web Comic world has never seen*!

*other than on our site, where you have seen it before because we do it all day long.  Now get outta here with that attitude, bro.

Coming out with a page a week is something we’re completely dedicated to.  Missing a week isn’t even talked about between us.  We won’t do it.  Not because we’re super hard workers, shit.  We’re lazy as hell.  One time Matt slept for 29 hours in a row when we were roommates in college.  29 hours.  I thought he might be dead but I was playing Gamecube so who gives a fuck.  Someday the killer from Se7en will murder Matt for Sloth, and the police will throw out the case because he deserved it.  Anyway, what was I talking about?  Oh, we come out with a page every week because disappointing people sucks.  We’ve disappointed our parents for years and the sting of that has worn out a long time ago, but disappointing our hordes of fans?  Hell naw.  It would hurt too much.

Tuesday’s page is something we’re really looking forward to.  It is a splash page, similar to the others we’ve done like the Captain or Whale reveal.  But this page must be set apart from them.  You’ll see.  This one isn’t your grandpa’s DAREDEVILS, who didn’t have DAREDEVILS.  No, this page changes the game.  It is actually a little nerve wracking (racking?)  because our audience could rebel against it violently and rip it down off the internet the way that they ripped Ghadafii out of that minivan… Is it wracking or racking?  What would racking be?  How does adding a w change that?  Somebody Google this.

Next week on the Lunch I’m going to give a run down about how the Pitch Black Day Radiograms are made.  That’ll be exciting.  Plus I’ll talk in depth about how we got to where we get after we get there on Tuesday, on Sunday.  #thuglife

Then after that, as I said before a bunch of times, it is break time until January something.  I forget.  But Matt’ll tell you on his blog, which is worse than mine in every way.

That’s the Lunch for 12/15

To the Future,

Fa la la la la, la la la la

‘Tis the season, folks.  The days are getting colder, and Pitch Black Day is getting grimmer.  Things are bunk for the DAREDEVILS atm.  The away team is separated and half of it surrendered, the sub is out of commish as far as we know, and my favorite bar First Round Draft just shut down this week.  We’ve put the DAREDEVILS into some tight spots before, but this is getting crazy!  Things could not get worse.

Just kidding, of course they can.  First Round Draft says its just closed because its under new management, but what if they never open again?  I sang the sweetest version of “Get Low” by ‘lil John and the East Side Boys there once, and I’m a lot of people’s hero now.  Without my soothing masculine presence I’m sure the rate of decapitation murders in Arizona will skyrocket.

Speaking of skyrocketing decapitation rates, Subsylvania’s went up exponentially once Abigail showed up.  In the original scripting for the last two pages, I’m not sure if we wrote that everyone’s nugget was being lopped off in every panel or if Danilo just took the liberty of C’ing H’s willy nilly.  I know we didn’t even write the splash page more than “Awesome stuff is happening!  Make it as cool as possible, pls.”  and that turned out good.  Either way we are geniuses and together we are the (93rd)best in the world.

Oh yeah, Top Web Comics.  We finished in the top 100 last month, can you believe it?  We hovered around 250 for so long, and then all of a sudden we started getting votes.  Where are these votes coming from, and more directly, how many of them are influenced purely by my incredible prose on the Sunday Bonus Lunch every week?  We may never know, the internet is a confusing array of tubes that make no sense, and I’ve only got a community college level understanding of it.  What we do know is that we don’t get as many as TwoKinds, which gets an insane amount of votes every day.  How do they pull that off?  Are fox people that much more interesting that a motley crew of adventurers in an impossible submarine (captained by a man who lives his life as part of its machinery) who fearlessly go out and face the limitless wonders and terrors of the ocean every Tuesday?  Should we relaunch were errybuddy is a sexy fox woman?  The answer is yes, but we’re not going to.  We ARE going to take a smart page out of their playbook and offer incentive content that you see when you vote for us soon, and that will replace the member’s stuff for the most part. We’ll still eventually figure out a cool way to use the decoder wheel, but with the amount of backmatter we’re doing with Pitch Black Day, it isn’t realistic to do much during this story.  Anyway, we get a respectable amount of votes as it is, and we don’t advertise on anything currently.

Next time you are poking around Top Web Comics after voting for us on everything you have that has an internet connection, you should check out some of the other comics that are near ours on the list.  It is crazy how different from ours they are.  Many of them star, as I mentioned,  sexy anthropomorphic fox people, and more than a few are bizarre full penetration graphic sexual tales.  Busty Solar is my favorite of these.  Be warned, that comic is super duper not safe for work, so don’t go there at work or anywhere where anyone can see you.  It will get you exiled from whatever community you belong to, and possibly burned at the stake.  What I’m trying to get at, is the world of Webcomics truly is for everyone.

Tuesday’s page is the one right before the last page of the chapter, so we’ve got a few pieces to move into place.  Its not as action-y as the last two have been, but there is a nifty cliffhanger that will make you go “huh!?”

Believe me when I tell you that the last page will punch you in the face.  We’re pushing a lot of boundaries with it, and it is totally an upping of the ante as far as how far we’re willing to go to grab your attention.  After that beast of a page we go on a well deserved holiday until the second week of the January, so that’ll be nice.  Not that I don’t love writing the Lunch, I do.  It’s just that its finals week and I’m so, so very tired.  I try hard to make sense in these brief words I get to tell you every week, but my ability to watershed is blunderbuss.

That’s the Lunch for 12/8

To the Future,

clap clap clap clap

This week’s page is a cool one, McGinty is socking dudes in the face so hard that their heads are exploding, and again we get a nippleless vampire chick (this time getting her nugget lopped off by Abby, who suffers no one sans nerps).

The focus of this page being on McGinty might seem weird at first, because he’s just a secondary character compared to Joe and Cup, and even Abigail, really.  But it was important that we showed him spotting his pal Deveraux in the castle (doing what exactly?).  We also cannonize Deveraux’s first name on this page, which has appeared on the website in the meet the cast section, but never in the book itself.  McGinty’s first name has still never been uttered, but it is Sean.  Just so you know.

 

We’re in the midst of working on something truly awesome here ate DEEP DIVE DAREDEVILS headquarters, a game changer.  I’m excited to be working on it, and the people we’re working on it with with blow you mind.  You will not be able to handle it.

Tuesday, we’ll see what other trouble the away team can get into as the fight rages on.  We’ll advance the story some this time, not just lingering on the fight because fights are awesome.  We did that for two pages already, its time this chapter kicked into high gear!

 

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving?  Mine was great.  I do enjoy the Black Friday aspect of the holiday more than the jamming so much food into my body that I make regretful sobs as my body shuts down watching football.  I got mad deals.  I bought a 40 inch TV that I’m going to use as a monitor!  That’s so dumb!  But whatever, a deals a deal right?

Speaking of deals, the deal with the NEXT DAREDEVILS story is that we’re getting art for it ALREADY!  That almost guarantees that we’ll have an extremely small downtime in between Pitch Black Day and the next story we tell, which I will not reveal the title to until the last possible moment, even though I want to so bad right now.

 

Our other amazing artist, Danilo is getting us art from chapter 4, and if I do say so myself, it will blow you mind out ‘cho head, son.

I’ve been slogging away on backmatter, its coming along, but I have to admit that it could be going faster if I wasn’t so swamped with school and being a professional woman pleasurer.  These things take their toll on me, but like a true professional, I carry on.  Like a champion.  A champion.

When you are a fish vampire, you lose your nipples because fish don’t have nipples.
There, now you know.  Its what everyone was wondering.

So even though the story didn’t progress very far this week, we got to see a sweet action shot by our incredible artist Danilo Guida.  This page was really unlike any we have done before.  The past Splash Pages were all huge reveals for the most part, take a look at all the splashes we had in Secret of the Beaufort Sea.

          

           

As you can see, none of the splashes were action.  Sure, there is an element of action in some, but the impact of the page is the reveal.  They are wow! because of the unexpected thing you see, not because of sweet heart pumping thrilling dope action, like last week’s page.  Even the splashes we’ve used in Pitch Black Day, the Fishmen teaser and the Dracula reveal have been the same.  This is for a simple reason.  If the page isn’t going to tell a lot of story, it’s got to have a lot of power.

All of the above pages had that:
Armstrong grabbing his head and screaming let reader know that things were about to get weird.  Our comic was 8 pages old, and we spent 7 of them showing off the ship and getting to know peeps, page 8 had to Karate punch you in the nuts to let you know that we meant business.
The Captain reveal let readers know that we had set a course for Sci-Fi, so stay on board, or bail now.
The Werewhale reveal showed off our sense of grandeur.  We were and forever are going to keep raising the stakes and getting bigger and crazier.

But back to the fight splash.

The fight splash is all about release.  We’ve been moving the pieces into place for months, and its time to make those pieces kick ass.  We’re not revealing anything here, you know everyone on the page, so we’re not learning anything new.  It only exists to kick ass.

With that being said, Tuesdays page kicks MORE ass than this one!  Don’t believe me?  Tune in Tuesday and see.  Why wouldn’t you just take my word on it?  geez, asshole.

Want some Lunch?  Howabout the same picture, but this time just the inks and pencils!

Welcome back, me!

The last two weeks of DEEP DIVE DAREDEVILS have seen some pretty important stuff happen.  First of all, Dracula is speaking to a mysterious person on his radio.  These people are incredibly important to the story, even though its easy to just pass right over this page as blibbidy blah.  We first met the mysterious benefactors in the Lost Chapter, when they and Drac struck a nefarious deal at the bottom of the sea.  Now, it seems, Dracula and these dudes aren’t on the same page and questions are being asked.  Nobody asks the King of Subsylvania questions.  That’s not how he rolls.  And now that he’s got Doc along side him, who’s gonna stop him?

Last week, the away team made their exit from the crashed minisub, and surprise surprise, Abigail tagged along.  if you think that bag of treats she was carrying looked fun, get ready for it, because shit is about to go down.  That’s right, I can tell you now that the next two pages have the most action ever seen in the DAREDEVILS blotter!  We kick it off on Tuesday with an awesome splash page that will blow up your mind deathstar and sink your battleship at the same time.  Then, in two weeks, we have a page that we have all agreed is the coolest page we’ve ever done.  I can’t wait for you to see it.  It is the stuff.

We’re moving up the list on Top Web Comics.  if you haven’t voted for us, you should because we’re awesome, and it proves that you are awesome too.  We’re at 90 right now, but we were as high as 83!  Hopefully we can finish the month in the top 100, that would be great.  We’re actually kicking around moving the membership content to the incentive board so that it appears there first, and then it will move to the members page after that.  We do want to make use of the decoder wheel more in the future, but with the amount of backmatter in this story, additional creation has been replaced with primary creation, and that puts a jimdangle in the crawsnest, if you take my meaning.

We’re also happy to tell you, that we have started work on our NEXT DAREDEVILS adventure!  After Pitch Black Day concludes, the DAREDEVILS will be back again, right away!  We’ve got Smilton (he did Cajun Caper) doing the art again, and so far it looks awesome.  Unlike last time, we’re not ready to show a teaser for this adventure quite yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one showed up early next year.  Chapter 3 should end in mid December, and then we’ll be taking the holidays off, but starting in Jan we’ll be back with the backmatter for chapter 3 followed immediately by Chapter 4, and then another DAREDEVILS first(!), an epilogue to Pitch Black Day!  Don’t bother asking any questions, the ending is so TOP SECRET that I barely even know what happens.

That’s the Lunch for 11/17

To the Future,
