KILL HIM!!

MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

... Okay, a little over-dramatic, right? But at the time I thought it was a dramatic way to end this story. I actually partially regret the big reveal, but only because it seems too early. We won't be getting back with these characters until we're ready for them. Our attention will remain on SuperMilo and Wormy for the time being. But it looks like, once this mysterious priestess character has her ship's tracking devices repaired, SuperMilo may be in a load of trouble!

I'm not sure if you can tell, but the mysterious king-type-guy there, "Lord something-or-another" until I reveal a name, is on a comm screen a la Star Trek. I forgot to draw wavy lines over top him to show it... I plan on correcting that later. There will be a printed, colored version coming out later. I even recently drew an extra splash page for the printed version to precede the story. Which is how future SuperMilo story arcs will be handled - with a splash page at the beginning of the next story. For printing purposes and to set location, etc. Anyway, to correct the odd amount of pages that would create, I am also creating an extra page somewhere else within the book. Possibly a new page of Colonel U.S. and Stripes. If you're looking to buy a copy of the colored version of this story - known as "SuperMilo: The Strip - Book 2: Enter the Space Worm!" - let me know. I'd appreciate feedback to see if this is something people want or not. The book should be 42 pages of comic plus any extras we might throw in. Are you interested in sketch art related to this story? A few pages relating to the creation of the Wormy character from concept to beginning to eventual rise as a fan fave? Want to see concept art for her? If so, that can be done. The completed story will be priced around maybe $8 dollars if no extras, around $12 if extras. These prices are of course just figures. Let me know if there's any interest. I hope to still make the book either way, but feedback is appreciated.

Speaking of printed books, the first you'll see is the collected "Book 1: Wobbling on the Edge!" Dang, I just realized I miss-spelled wobbling as "wobblying" on the book cover, lol. It will contain all of the colored online content, plus a new 14 or so page prologue chapter, and extra content. You can expect a higher price as above due to larger page numbering. This is a 52 page book without extras (you'd pay around $10), around 70 with extras (you'd pay around $15). Tom Gray is thinking we should do without extras for the time being due to printing costs. That may be something I need to consider, but feedback from readers could influence that decision.

Speaking of books and paying, is anyone interested in a standard comic size continuing adventures of SuperMilo and friends? I've been writing the main series for years, but I have limited drawing time. Although I want to draw it myself, I've long considered hiring someone. But I can't do that if I have no money, which is where I stand. If you're interested in one day purchasing and reading a print-only SuperMilo standard comic starting with the in-depth origin two-parter, then let me know how much demand there is! This all takes place before he meets the space worm, so no space worm, but I think you'll be introduced to other lovable characters and interesting villains. I've been considering starting a Kickstarter campaign to hire an artist to do the first 2-part story (issues 1 + 2, a full story) and that artist was going to possibly be Tazi-San at http://tazi-san.deviantart.com/ , but that depends on if the money comes and her availability and desire to work on this project. Other possible artists from deviant art are in my mind... Come to think of it, they're all Sonic the Hedgehog fan artists! Anyway, if you're interested in seeing SuperMilo and his friends in further adventures, maybe even a new book on a monthly basis, let me know. Maybe it'll happen. If I can't commission anyone, I'll just draw it myself, of course. If and when that happens is another matter. Hoping to get it done, though. At least for personal reasons.

So Wormy's father is Mothra?
Thumbs up to the comics.

I really like that. I might have SuperMilo spout your comment out of his pie-hole as some sort of snarky insult in the event the two characters eventually might meet.
