Here's a few snippets from of Space Ships! Space Monsters! (now going to be Space Monsters! Space Ships!) and one from Freak City another older comic.

I thought I'd share some of the other end of what I've been working on, and the plan for all of these small updates I've been posting. Hopefully as a result it'll be clear why it seems as if I've been dragging my feet on the drawing end of things.
At the end of September the web comics magazine Plain Comics (name pending) is going live. With features like above! and others!
It's going to launch with the following:
-Space Monsters! Space Ships! 5 strips (It's a re-hash of a series of strips I did a few years ago, but in 3D!)
-Louisiana Purchased 5 strips (one of which you've already seen a preview of)
-2 short stories (including twice nude, and a mystery story)
The format for the magazine is going to be three weekly updates, a strip of SM!SS! Mondays, a strip of LP Wednesdays, and a strip of a short story on Fridays. Until then though I'm trying to get the formatting working and streamline the scripting process so while I'll post updates here before the website goes live I'll try not to give specific time estimates anymore. Instead I'll give one big estimate and say the site goes live in 30 days.
Also I'm going to post some of my older comic work (specifically from Space Monsters! Space Ships!) because I realized all my images have disappeared for some reason.

I was hoping to have the first two pages of this up today and Louisiana Purchased #1 tomorrow, but it looks like I'm going to have to bump back by a day because I have a piece that needs to get sent off to a show soon. So the first two pages of this tomorrow and LP #1 tuesday instead of monday.

The preface for Louisiana Purchased is up, the format is going to be slightly different when it makes it to the final website ( no scrolling) but for now here's a pretty good look at what's coming. Hopefully without too many typos.
Edit: fixed some typos and changed some of the script.

Tomorrow. That's the 24th Plain Comics Magazine goes live. I've been working on it since I finished school and it'll be an exceptionally soft launch, but I'm pretty excited. A link will follow early tomorrow.
The schedule is the reintroduction of Louisiana Purchased tomorrow, a short story in the evening that reveals the rough format of the strips, and the first official Louisiana Purchased Sunday afternoon, with the first five strips launching every other day for the following two weeks. I'm going to settle on a regular chronological window soon, but for now the plan is to get everything live and up at a regular pace, and then tweak from there.
It's not an official launch for the site and is really just a technical preview with a URL, but I thought if you're one of the two people who read this regularly you may want to take a peak as it comes together.
For now the URL will be mackenzieschubert.info
