Chisuji Chapter 0 – The Change – Page 33

–CHISUJI ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

I’ve come to a decision.   For those of you that have followed this webcomic throughout the years, you will know that I have been through ups and downs and have constantly struggled to provide updates to entertain and keep people coming back.  I have gone through changes of artists, storyline and many trials and tribulations in my personal life that have detracted from this comic.  It is enough.

As of this moment and until further notice (which frankly already recognizes a defacto state) Chisuji is on hold indefinitely.  I will not post updates here until I am certain I have enough content to provide a large backlog of pages to be posted and until I am certain the production method I am using will support an adequate amount of story and content to support the readership that I may have.

That said, I am working on scripts to continue the story, I have an artist working on completing the old story arc for publication (though not on the web even though that story is being rewritten for the webcomic itself).  I am also working on a text novel of Chisuji so I can get this story out in advance of the schedules of artists and others, so in the end I would have no one else to blame for my success or failure.  I am also preparing content for a bi-weekly humor strip based on the characters and another storyline called “Transformative Angel” that occurs within the Chisuji Universe.  Hopefully if I can work out these things and the issues in my personal life, you may see content again on this page before the end of the year.

Here’s hoping you all live safely and that I will see you again by then…

Chisuji: Casting Call Poster

Heya all!

As I have mentioned in the past, we will be doing a humorous side strip detailing the lives of the cast and characters interacting with the creators of the comic in ‘real life’ outside the story. This is still in concept phase, as we are working with getting Leo Saunders to do most of that strip along with additional art and entries by other artists who have worked on the team. That said, Satanasov recently did a poster that we will be selling at the upcoming conventions this summer that shows a possible scene that would have gone on between the three main characters. :P You can see it here: www.chisuji.com/images/chisujiposter5small.jpg

Enjoy and see you all soon!

Thoughts on the ‘Torture Debate’

Heya all…

As you know, I am in the Military, getting ready to deploy to the Middle East…so one generally assumes I am biased towards a ‘conservative viewpoint’ (far from the case BTW).  At any rate, I have been following the debate in the American Politics venue on the current revelations on just how far the previous administration stooped in its interrogation and treatment of people captured as ‘Terror Suspects’.  Here is a good article on the issue:  http://voices.washingtonpost.com/white-house-watch/torture/torturing-for-propaganda-purpo.html
A comment to this article struck me as particularly telling, one which sums up my position on this debate pretty nicely:

GM653:

I would be interested in where you received your interrogation training.

Because at the Army Intelligence School we were taught early some very important points about the use of this garbage.

It. Is. Morally. Reprehensible.
It. Does. Not. Work.
It. Puts. Soldiers’. Lives. In. Danger.

That doesn’t even address the fact that it violates most everything this nation is supposed to stand for. There was a reason that this stuff wasn’t found in the Army training manual.

The terrorists achieved a huge strategic victory when the US stooped to using this stuff. In the name of defending the “homeland” (I hate that term), we cast aside everything that makes this country great and worth defending.

My sorry hide isn’t what is worth defending, and neither is yours. Who we are as a people and a nation, and our founding ideals, are the things worth dying for. When you cast that aside, you’ve lost already. That’s what the terrorists were trying to do in the first place.

Comment as you will…

P.S.: Adding this quote..

Treat them with humanity, and let them have no reason to complain of our copying the brutal example of the British Army in their treatment of our unfortunate brethren who have fallen into their hands. Should any American soldier be so base and infamous as to injure any prisoner. . . I do most earnestly enjoin you to bring him to such severe and exemplary punishment as the enormity of the crime may require. Should it extend to death itself, it will not be disproportional to its guilt at such a time and in such a cause… for by such conduct they bring shame, disgrace and ruin to themselves and their country.” – George Washington, charge to the Northern Expeditionary Force, Sept. 14, 1775


Chisuji Reboot!

Greetings all!

This is the new site in progress for Chisuji!  As you may or may not know, this is part of the reboot process where I have decided to alter / rewrite the Chisuji storyline to allow our new artist, Satanasov, to set the overall ‘look’ of the series.  Eventually I will provide a place you can look at the old art and story archives, but bear in mind that those are not continued from this point forward and have no continuity to the current series.   For the first comic post is a image of a poster that Satanasov did that we will offer for sale at the online store (hosted by Angry Viking Press) and at conventions we attend.

We are going to launch the comic starting on June 9, 2009 with an update schedule of Tuesdays and Thursdays for the main story.  We also plan on giving you the occasional humorous strip called ‘Chisuji – Behind the Bullets’ which will showcase as often as Leo can produce strips for it (we are looking at Mondays and Wednesdays for this strip).  All in all we are fairly excited about this as we go forward.

Also be sure to check out Angry Viking Press ( www.angryvikingpress.com ) for Chisuji stuff and lots more besides!  They are going public this May through Enemi Entertainment and are in this month’s catalog which you can find here: www.enemi-entertainment.com .  Chisuji will be publishing a collected graphic novel series with them hopefully by late fall / early winter 2009, so be sure to support them – ask your local comic shop to order their books!

Thats all for now…see you as we continue to work on the comic!
