Hah! So here it finally is!!
I’ve given this a lot of thought. I wasn’t planning to publish it. One of the reasons being that my attempt to do a colour version in Photoshop was looking so horrible (IMO), I couldn’t finish it. There were other reasons. See below the artwork for more details!! (Also, page two etc is below the cut, if you’re reading on the front page!)
Anyhow, finally decided to just put it up here and to hell with it…
BONUS: here are “original art” scans, before any clean-ups or adjustment, warts & all!!
So, this strip was done for my own, personal reasons. As 2021 was the 15th anniversary of Club Vamporama, I wanted to finish it off properly—it had been fairly dead for a number of years. My attempt in 2019 to revive it was a disaster; the attempt to make promo videos for a live-action version in 2017 was also pretty much a failed endeavour. It was time to put it to bed.
But not necessarily time to do away with the characters! They have a whole new context now. So this strip is kind of a reboot as well as an ending… of which I have given a little thought.
Incidentally: I may, at some point, still do a colour version of this strip, if I can get some quality prints of the art and do it by hand. That might work. I’m done with Photoshop colouring.
More as and when I feel like it…
