Q: When do you update?
Post-Nuke is currently on hiatus. Updates will resume sometime
I have been working hard on chapter 10 making a buffer zone. Where I have
at least 15 to 20 pages done a head of time. Once I have accumulated enough pages I will be updating the comic once again.
Q: Why did you stop updating? You used to be so passionate, what
I really needed a brake from Post-Nuke comics. I've
been working hard on this comic for over 5 years and unfortunately they
haven't been very good years. I do hate to admit it but I did loose
heart in this project and sometimes I even regret starting it. There are a
lot of reasons why. This comic took way to long to make and was an
exhausting amount of work. Then 2 years into the project I had a serious
hard drive crash, completely losing 2 whole chapters. I have to rescan the
artwork and redo them completely. Then the Post-Nuke forum got out of hand
and I had to shut it down. I feel that was a big blow. Post-Nuke comics
just didn't feel the same after that. I tried to keep it together but my
updates got worse and worse. The fans I had begin to turn on me. People
began sending me really nasty emails, which didn't help at all. By the
time I had the printed comic book finally ready hardly anyone bought them.
I really do appreciate the few fans that did buy the book and I even
signed every one of them. I don't want to sound to negative here. I do
have a lot of good fans that really do love this story and gave their
support. For that reason I will not give up on it and I will finish
Post-Nuke. This brake has really help replenish my creative energy and I
am now once again working hard on the comic.
Q: What breed of dog is Aries?
Aries is based on our family dog Ginger. He was a
Greyhound/Irish wolfhound cross. He was a big skinny scruffy looking dog
and I thought he'd make a good post-nuke dog. He had a great personally
that I tried to translate over to Aries. Sadly Ginger died of old age a
few years ago. He made it to 15years old. Which is remarkable for a
Greyhound as they usually only have a life expectancy of 8 to 9 years.
Still, I miss that old dog. You can read more about it and see images of
Q: Why is your comic in this strange black and white art style?
Some people have said, "to bad it's not in colour",
have to disagree. If I wanted it in colour it would be in colour. Why
Black and White such a bad thing to some people? I was inspired by Frank
Miller's Sin City
comics. I'm trying to set a
certain dark gritty mood to the story. I also wanted a certain
uniqueness or originality for the comic that separates it from the
I didn't want a traditional Marvel or Manga/Anime style comic. They
just don't seem to have the mood or atmosphere I'm trying to set for
Post-Nuke. I also chose to make the comic more like a movie storyboard
then traditional comic style to give it a cinematic feel. The
storyboard style also makes it easier for non-comic readers to follow
Q: How is your comic artwork made?
The comic is all hand drawn in pencil, then inked, and
then I use a pencil to shade the picture. The image is then scanned
into Photoshop where it is composed into the image you see. Click here
to see an example image of the steps involved.
Q: The art and storyline is good, but the dialog and writing
is a bit rough.
Sorry but English was not my first language. Swiss German was.
"Ja, ich bin ein Schweizer bei Geburt". ;-)
I do agree the dialog and writing is rough. I even
cringe when I read through the comics. Right now I just want to get the
story out of my head and onto paper. I have always considered the
online comics as rough copies, or a draft version. Basically you're
seeing the comic being made in real-time. The slow and monotonous
it is. The printed comic books will have all the bad artwork redone,
and an editor will also fix all bad writing and grammar. I hope
people can look past the current roughness and see the story. It will
all be fixed.
Q: I'm sure you get a lot of people telling you this, but your comic
Actually I don't. So thank you! People seem to think Post-Nuke
comics is doing better then it really is. Fan support for Post-Nuke is
actually very small. When I was actually updating on time I would hardly
hear from anyone. Weeks would go bye and I might get one fan letter. Its
not until I stop updating or actually ask, "Does anyone even like this
comic?" that I start hearing from people.
Q: How can I help support Post-Nuke?
There are many ways you can really help Post-Nuke
comics with out spending any money. I do my best to put this comic
together, but it's up to you, the fans, to show your support and spread
the word. Below are a few very simple things you can do help.
It is free and you don't have to register. I also place bonus
images after you vote, and update them every week. Just two clicks to
vote. The more votes Post-Nuke receives the higher it will move up the
top 100 comics list. You can also vote every 24hours. If
everyone coming to PN would vote just once, we'd be off the
chart, but people don't and I find that very discouraging. Vote at TopWebComics
Check out our sponsor
This again costs you nothing, but it will greatly help the sponsors and
Post-Nuke. Most people advertising on PN are other webcomics and you
may find another favorite comic to read. So please check out who's
advertising on Post-Nuke comic.
Tell people about
Best advertising is by word of mouth. If everyone just told two people
(more would be even better) about Post-Nuke it would more then double
the traffic to this site. This is a good thing. I spend a lot of money
on advertising to bring new people to PN, it would be greatly
appreciated if some people can help out by just spreading the word
about PN. At the bottom of the page there are some banners you can use
to link to this site.
Buy the printed comic book
The printed comic
is the polished up version of the online comic. I even added
bonus material to it. It is a great way to support the comic and get
something in return.
I've spent a lot of time and money on this comic project to provide free entertainment
to people. I'd prefer it if people bought a comic
. But if you have the spare cash and feel generous, please
donate. It would be greatly appreciated.
Q: When will the other printed comic book issues
Unfortunately I didn't sell enough comic books to continue
with the single issues. I only sold about 250 comic books and some got
lost or damaged in the mail. So by the time it was all said and done, it
actually cost me money instead of making some to pay for this site. I
still have about 150 copies sitting here collecting dust. 1 or 2 people may
buy a comic a month. So I wont be printing any more single comic books.
Instead I am now working on printing the entire comic series into one big
book. Which was always the plan, but I have to finish chapter 10 first
before I can complete this book. So this new book wont be available until
late next year, or 2011.
Q: Do you have any other stories other then
Not finished, but I do have a secret comic book projects in the
works. My main objective is to finish Post-Nuke comics, but it is nice to
sometime shift gears and work on something totally different. My newest
comic is an anime/manga style comic book. It is a science fiction /
fantasy story in full color and will be available in printed comic book
form. Hopefully by the summer of 2010. I'm not ready to reveal images of
it yet, but I will be posting samples on my Deviant
Q: I have a website, but not much content on it. Can I mirror
your comics on my website?
Absolutely not! Do not host or mirror my comics or
artwork on another website without my written permission. Post-Nuke
comics and my artworks are copyrighted.
Q: Can I translate your comic to a foreran language and host
it on my website?
Again, NO! Please do not translate my comic and host it
on your site. I have many reasons why I do not want the comic
translated at this time. Please respect that. Do not just take it upon
yourself to start translating my comic and expect I'll be happy or
grateful for it. I will not be, as some of you have already found out.
I get very upset when I see my comic translated or hosted on some other
website without my permission. Again Post-Nuke Comics is copyrighted
Q: Do you have a link page where we can make a
I don't have a link page yet. But I am working on one.
Q: Do you have any banners I can use to link to your site?
Yes, I have a few banners bellow in different sizes. You are
to use them.
