Technology's great...except when it doesn't work.

So, as some of you know, I've been having all sorts of computer problems...AGAIN. Never fails, as soon as I start being productive, technology goes all "No no NO...we can't have this."

I'm going to use it as an excuse to take a break. The Path will return Jan 2nd. Julianne and I are off to New York to spend the holidays with my family anyways, so it's not like I'd have a whole lot of time for updating anyway.

See you guys when I get back and Merry Christmas!

What Comes Next?

So, as most of you can probably start to glean, the first volume of "The Path" is rapidly headed towards it's conclusion. Kat's dead, Inanna apparently has no plans to actually SAVE the world or Chance, Ratatosk is blindly following Inanna's lead, and by possessing Kat's dead body Nyarlathotep has succeeded in manipulating Chance into a position where he's damned if he does--damned if he doesn't. God damn, but that guy's life is fucked up.

With the current storyline ending in just a few short issues, what comes next? Will Chance succeed in stopping Nyarlathotep? Will Cthulhu actually answer the call? Will any other mythological beings rally to Chance in hopes of stopping the Outer Gods from returning to our world? Well, I'll ya...whatever happens, it's not going to be pretty.

But back to the question at hand: What comes next? There's going to be a Wizard World Exclusive comic for one of the Wizard World shows in 2009 (I'll be self-publishing that one, as my publisher is...well...let's just say I'll be self-publishing that one), at the close of this storyline there are going to be a few stand-alone issues. Short stories like "The Cutty Black Sow" was. Tie up loose ends and make sure every little corner of The Path's universe is tucked back in place. Then whichever of our intrepid heroes make it to the other side of the current crisis-at-hand (if any even do), they'll have to contend with The Rise of Leng. Dun dun DUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.
