New episode of The Mindgator up!
This week, we edge closer to the dark mysteries of Higashi-Nakano and questions still unresolved. Specifically, what happened to Miguel and Mai after Miguel’s daring rescue? Did Miguel’s bike survive the rough landing? What was that strange dog about last episode?
So, I’ve been working on the mindgator comic pretty much constantly. There was a story outlined and even pages drawn before I started but somewhere in the posting of pages I realized a lot of the larger themes breathing just beneath the surface of my story. Some unexpected left-turns were made to answer those themes and now I am in unscripted territory.
But this is not the first time. Elbis was drawn in much the same way. A kind of “gonzo comic” of my life in Tokyo. Although I suppose in the world of art, that could be a bit redundant.
The “maneki” cat above is the chapter symbol for chapter 1. It is taken from the object dangling from the end of Mai’s electro-gun on page 10. It is a symbol of luck or wealth depending on which arm is raised. My idea being that you’d want a little luck or wealth in your job so in this case, Mai puts it on her gun, her work tool.
The evelution of the chapter titles is something that I’m currently hammering out for the print version of the book but for the time being I’ll leave the titles for chapters 1 and 2 in their current state. Chapter 3 is the final form of chapter titling I’ll be using, I think.
The Mindgator is a weekly Sci-fi Adventure comic written and drawn by Mulele Jarvis. Check it out HERE.
