And we’re officially behind schedule. For anyone anticipating the next batch of entries at home, I’m sorry but “J” took much longer than expected. Also, I’d much rather take my time with these and have them done up right than rush on through to get everything done by the end of the year. At any rate, we’re nearing the halfway point. That’s exciting!
Idakilu is first, a giant Catfish God in the Golden City of Zard. I’m beginning to worry about the number of Zard stories, especially since the next few months we’d be seeing more. But at the same time, I enjoy visiting this new mythology and working on crafting new stories. So we’ll probably stay on course with Zard. Probably.
This one really should have been broken up into several smaller entries- one for each hero – and have ti be a recurring thread much like Zard. But instead I decided to tackle 70+ years of comic-bookery in one entry, and I think it’s a good one. I’m not sure if it manages to distinguish itself as a separate entity, or if it’s hitting the “aren’t comic books CRAZY?” joke button over and over. I’m leaning toward the former. It’s also interesting that these two have one larger piece of recurring lore and one larger piece that should have been recurring lore.
At any rate, I do think we’ll be visiting some of the writers for Javelin again.
