Yes, it's Flynn again, and yours truly has much in the way of good news. The new comic is definitely underway, and it's going to be nifty! Caz was nice enough to show me some previews of the upcoming Altermeta comic...now with more cowbell! (Sorry, that's an inside joke...Caz will get it.)

Anyways, I'm open to answering questions, as long as it's nothing too specific. I don't want to give away too much, but feel free to ask anyway...worst I can do is say "no, I can't talk about that". ;)

Speaking of which, since Caz and I never seem to be around at the same time, you think you could bug him for some site art?  I assume he doesn't want the banner from the old comic up on the main page :P

I'll have to chat with him about that. We might team up on the banner, which I'm sure would please some of the readers. :)

:P did he finally go with the solid brush style for the comic?

In my personal opinion, I would describe the style as a mix of outline and cel airbrushing. It has a very distinct flavor, and reminds me a lot of the look of Spirited Away and other Studio Gibli works, combined with some Full Metal Alchemist influence. Even the basic lineart is distinctly different from before.

Magus: I, for one, welcome our new livejournal Q & A overlord (overlady?).

The question that's been going through my head the most would be, "When might we see more of the Hromwathi?" They aren't the most popular element, I know, but they have influenced Kuvrahk culture.
Ah, you shall indeed be pleased, loyal reader! The present and past interactions of the different races of Cavris is going to be one of many plot points in the new series.

There will be a lot more delving into the culture, background, and reasons why things are as they are. It's a slightly different world than what the prior comic introduced, so of course such change comes with all new things for readers to learn and enjoy. :)

The storyline is still under development. As for cast, only about half the existing characters will be returning, though I'm sure you'll be happy that Sasha and T-Square are among them. There are, however, a number of new characters, which I'll talk about briefly:

- A big, strong, good-hearted, kinda dumb but uncannily insightful character who reminds me a lot of Pasha, John Goodman's character from Emperor's New Groove.
- A sly, charming scoundrel who owns an airship. Has a very slick look.
- A character who strongly reminds me of someone from Ful Metal Alchemist...not saying who. :)
- A new female character. Very sassy.

Oh, and Sasha is more androgynous than ever. *giggles*

Airships ahoy for the new series! One of the characters flies one, as I mentioned.
