This is somewhat of an Easter egg (even though I made it easy enough to find) of what the start of Shotgun Shuffle was some 8 plus years ago. Back when I was still planning on marketing my works strictly through print-on-demand services. That later turned out to be too costly per book, so this idea was eventually scrapped. I went back to the drawing board for a few more years and finally settled on the idea of making a webcomic. By 2008-09, I had juxtaposition’d most of my thoughts and characters into what the comic is today.
What’s below is NOT the original 20 strips of this comic I never posted on this site. A few of you may remember me mentioning those before. I made them as a trial run before finally launching the site, and ultimately hated them. Those will never be seen (until I slap them in my first book as filler.) THIS predates that. It was drawn on official comic sized comic board comic paper board or whatever. Very expensive. And wow was that money wasted. :D
Anyway.. you’ll see some familiar faces in these 34 something pages once they’re all posted (if you can even recognize them in this now-Neanderthalic state.) I’ll do them in chunks as I can get to them. They all need to be lettered since, at the time, I had no idea how to do word bubbles. Hell, I wasn’t even using Photoshop. This was done with a free art program that came with my 2001 computer called Arcsoft. Arcsoft was a glorified MS Paint program with gradient capability. Only a dozen pages or so are colored, then we”ll be going full-on Kinko’s scanner copy. This should be fun.
