Comic Whispers 5 Update!

It's been almost three weeks since I posted anything, so I thought I'd just let you know how everything is coming along with Comic Whispers 5. Because of the really interconnected nature of things this time around (more even than with CYOCW), I feel that letting people see the comic as it's going along probably isn't the best method, especially since so many people are doing multiple panels. But I thought you all deserved an update on the progress we've been making.

So far, you all have managed to complete 25 panels out of a total of 81 panels, with eight panels that have been assigned but I don't have back yet. For those of you who aren't that much better at math than I am, that means that we're over one-quarter finished, and rapidly coming up on being one-third done. For two weeks worth of work, I think that's pretty good!

I'd love to tell you all a bit more about the comic, but I don't want to unduly influence anyone. (I think most of you know the general theme by now, although it's possible you may not, even if you've already received your first panel!) Suffice it to say, everyone's work has exceeded my expectations. Some people have turned in some absolutely exquisite panels that I think rival the very best we've ever seen in Comic Whispers (and I'm being serious about this) and are absolutely of professional calibre. And, yes, others a bit rougher around the edges. But they're all bursting with creativity (and most of them with humor), and I really anticipate that the final outcome will amuse and entertain a lot of people.

One thing, though--since we still have about 50 panels left to do (oh boy), I'd really love to expand the artist base a little bit. A lot of people (and you know who you are) have been extremely generous and accommodating in helping out, and we have just about enough people to cover all the panels. However, since I'd really prefer to avoid having anyone draw four or more comics, it would be really nice if we could line up just three or four more people, even if they'd only be willing to draw one or two panels each. If any of you reading this originally said no, but think you might be willing or able to participate now, please let me know--it's never too late to join! Or, if you know anyone you think might be interested, pass along the info to them and have them get in touch with me. Again, things are moving along very nicely, and I want to keep them that way.

Anyway, if you haven't gotten a panel yet, you can probably expect one soon, and if you've already gotten one, chances are you can look forward to another one before too long. Thanks again for all your hard work, and I'll post another update soon!
