Here’s the next ten pages. This week was a tough one. I had to do a lot of stuff at the last minute.

Crane is battling the demon of Wrath. What does that mean to you?

Things have been violent lately. I hope it’s not too dark and gritty. Seeing how dark the story’s been lately, I’m going to try to tilt it back toward the more idealistic end of the spectrum.

Have fun!

P.S. Does page 30 make any sense to you?

Pumpkin Man is back. I hope you enjoyed Klamert’s village. It’s been a bit since I did much Pumpkin Man. How do you like the latest developments? I would love to hear from you.

Page 20 underwent some last minute changes, so if the layout seems different, that’s because the original content of it was different, and I actually changed the story flow after drawing the panel borders.

Crane seems to be getting the spotlight for now, but will he survive it? Stay tuned.

. . . I sure hope this all makes some sort of sense to you guys.

Hey. Now that Klamert’s Village is over, I won’t have anything to do with the comics here until Pumpkin Man is finished. This is because Pumpkin Man is made solely by Dean, and it’s his story. But, if you enjoyed Klamert’s Village, you can look forward to another story written by me once Pumpkin Man is over. I’ve already planned it out a bit, and it’ll certainly be more thought-out than Klamert’s Village, and it’ll be longer, with a more complex plot. It might run to around 150 pages, but I can’t be sure. I hope you’ll enjoy what’s in store, and enjoy Pumpkin Man in its latter chapters.

This the end. I hope you enjoyed the story. We would love to hear your thoughts. This has been a new experience, both in working with my brother, and with outputting comics at this speed. It feels strange to be done with it. Very strange, both in regret and in happiness.

I’ve learned a lot through writing the story for this comic. I think, first of all, as a writer/artist, I believe that it is more important to work consistently than to have divinely inspired creativity. A writer/artist should always aim to hone their skills through practice, and to have some volume of good, completed work. One who calls themselves a writer/artist but hardly ever makes anything isn’t really going to be recognized as one by anyone other than themselves. In doing this, I’ve had a lot of practice, and created 54 pages of comics which I can say that I scripted. So I suppose, in a small sense, I can actually call myself an amateur comic writer. For other writers/artists out there, the most important thing is to work consistently every day and get some practice.
I also cannot understate the importance of reading lots of good comics. Particularly the ones on this blog. You should learn from our well-made comics. One thing I’ve learned a lot from comics like Hunter X Hunter and JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure is how important it is to make the reader not feel cheated, and to provide reasonable explanations to make things feel realistic.
And finally, I have a friend who made a video, so I’d like to make a plug for it here. He’s another good, up-and-coming artist who makes videos in a sort of picture-book form. It’s pretty good.
Thank you for reading our comic. Have a nice day.

Thank you for reading thus far. This week was a difficult one. Seven separate panels had to be completely redrawn. Most of the conflicts have been mostly resolved, but there’s still a little bit of drama left. I hope you liked the violence and the explosion.

The story is now coming close to the conclusion. I hope you’ve been enjoying it as much as we have. But it isn’t over yet, and there’s still a bit of story left. I’ve been told that the pacing of these later pages is a bit slow, and that’s probably my fault. I’m really still getting used to writing the script for a comic. With Beta’s shape, size, and the antenna on his head, making him into a bomb robot made sense to me. I wonder what the other robots’ types are. Although a better doctor might have been able to save Klamert’s leg, I think it was realistic that a doctor of a small village wouldn’t be able to do much other than chop it off. Though Klamert looks a lot better now. Like him or hate him, he’s central to the story. It is called “Klamert’s Village” after all. See ya later.
