- Okay, first some answers to questions about Runt and Candy. They'r going to have their own new comic, very much in the style of Totally Kotor (three panel sci-fi comedy epic), which I am currently in pre-production with. But it's going to take a while. I want to create a consistent science fiction universe, rather than borrowing from someone else's, so this week I've been working on designing their spaceship, planning out the character roster and designing the alien species of their universe. It takes me a long time to plan these things out - you may notice that the first Special Level comic was drawn in September of last year. Runt and Candy won't return for at least a year: they're taking an extended vacation.

A project of mine that you should get excited for, however, is this new comic, coming summer 2011:

Yes, Billy Hong Kong. Kung fu, ninjas, cowboys and robots. And all hand-drawn and hand coloured. I've tried to make it look like it's been coloured in by an excited child - it's bright and bold and happy and not always coloured within the lines. Let me know what you think of it.

I've already got over thirty pages drawn of Billy Hong Kong, but I'm holding off until summer for a release because a) I'll be returning to Hong Kong myself in the summer and b) it is incredibly hard to come up with ideas for the comic, which means that new pages come as and when they want to. My hope is to have a year's worth of pages drawn in advance so I won't have to worry about coming up with an idea every week - that means twenty or so more pages to go. But Billy Hong Kong is a lot of fun to draw and I'm hoping you'll all enjoy it.

Incidentally, the url billyhongkong.com currently just points to Special Level.

that there is a piece of artwork

Im guessing you did that on computer, at least in some ways. But that seriously looks brilliant =D

please can you post one comic of billy hong kong here just so we can have more of an idea of what it's going to be about. (plus it looks epic)

Your buffer will eventually catch up to you, no matter how big it is (unless you finish the comic first).

Looks cool!

Well, it's better than my idea of an anarcho-syndicalist commune, where they take it in turns to be a sort of "executive officer" for the week.

Dude, you just started a comic and now you're thinking of making two more? You must have a lot of free time on your hands.
