“Pumpkins Don’t Have Souls!”

Happy Halloween!

Recently, a fellow blogger (who wishes to remain anonymous) took the time to right an essay on Pumpkin Man. I know that after all this time, it was fun for me to read, and look back on the series. I don’t know if it will be fun for you to read, but check it out anyway.

Pumpkins Don’t Have Souls!

I must apologize. I know Victor has done many terrible things, but most of them can be forgiven . . . but Hawaiian Pizza? Everyone knows pineapples don’t belong on pizza. If he wanted fruit, he could have ordered a (less sinful) grape pizza.

By the way, of all the Pizzas listed (supreme, Hawaiian, grape, sardine, emu, kumquat, sausage) which is arguably the best?

Who doesn’t like moral dilemmas? Victor must win, but he also must do what he thinks is right. What is there to do in a situation like this?

I’m thinking of experimenting with the scripting. I’m using a panel-by-panel structure, but I’m worried it doesn’t let the artist (Dean) pace and frame things how he sees fit. As the writer, I know what I want out of the plot, but that doesn’t mean I know what’ll look good on the page. Thus, I might use more of a summary-type script in the next few chapters. Let’s see how it goes.

Hey. Please excuse my brother. Also, please excuse the badly colored cover, which I am entirely responsible for.

I’m expecting hate-mail. I actually don’t get a lot of mail, so hate-mail might actually be appreciated. Clara isn’t necessarily an amazing person, but even if a person is completely terrible, and they’re a girl, having them get punched in the face is generally very frowned upon. I’d like to say this was completely necessary, but I probably could have thought of a different way. I wonder if I’m a worse person than any of my characters. I hope this comic doesn’t turn into a psychological self-diagnoses of myself. Oh well. Now that the trio is formed, we can get into the meat of things in the next chapter.

Hey. Here we are. We’ve finally officially introduced our much-anticipated third main character: Clara Larson. It’s good to be here. We hope you like her. Actually, I don’t think Jim feels that way. I think he wants you to hate her. As a writer, he’s pretty touchy about his characters, and the backlash against Victor has got him feeling grumpy. Don’t tell him I said that, though.

Sorry we don’t have a cover. We’re trying to catch up on that. I set up a cover gallery for our covers, but we only have three. Sorry. We’re trying to catch up. You should see ten pages next week, and then we’ll probably switch to posting one whole chapter every other week. Sorry for all the unreliability.

I’m currently trying to write chapter 7, and it’s pretty hard. Chapter 6 is looking pretty good, I think, but I don’t know what others will think. I always worry that I’ll wake up one day, and realize everything I’ve ever written is absolutely terrible, and I didn’t realize that. Maybe it’s true, and I’m deluded, in a dream that my writing is decent. Learning about how differently other people interpret the story can be disheartening, but I hope that they enjoy what they read. Well, either way, it doesn’t really matter as long as I improve. If you have any constructive criticism, that’d be helpful.

After a long and unforgivable hiatus, we now present you with the exciting conclusion to chapter 4.

Do you want me to say anything else, or explain this? I know this is incomplete. I cannot justify myself with words. Things aren’t going smoothly right now. There’s still hope, though.

Well, it seems that things are going somewhere. There’s been a fight, Zed’s special powers, and the forming of the duo. Zed’s chapter was stylistically and narratively very different than Victor. Especially because we spent a ton of time on him moping around, talking to himself, and finding the badge. Victor’s chapter felt a bit more fast-paced to me. Though, so far, every chapter has ended in an action scene of some sort. I’m happy that Victor finally got a chance to really succeed, rather than constantly being saved by deus-ex-machina. However, Zed was the main character of this chapter, so the pattern continues of the main character being a wimp/loser. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to break out of this mold soon.
