THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF THE GLOAMING IS HERE
8.5"x7" - 33 Pages - Full Color - Adults Only
Friends, here it is, the second issue of THE GLOAMING. Nearly a year of toil and ink went into its production. Overall, I am fairly proud of the end result.
This issue introduces some new players and concludes the first half of the opening part of the story; establishing crucial players and their positions/relationships in the plot. Next issue the propelling action kicks the narrative into forward momentum!
One thing I like about making porno comics (aside from the challenge of drawing intertwined human forms into satisfying aesthetic entanglements) is the freedom it gives me to explore the human condition without fear of violating any imposed standards of decency. Also - although I have the story pretty thoroughly plotted out - it's a convenience to just have the characters engage in sex whenever I hit a point of uncertainty in the storyline.
Ultimately, I hope to shape a beautiful, strange book brimming with dark impulses and glorious madness.
I thank you all for helping to make this thing a reality. For a long, long time I've felt that I've been drawing and publishing these comix in an insular bubble. It nurtures my soul to witness the enthusiastic responses these kickstarter campaigns have kicked up! Thank you, thank you!
Risks and challenges
My previous (and first) Kickstarter Campaign demonstrated how much I have to learn. This time, I am including a shipping fee for every reward. It was fortunate that the campaign for THE GLOAMING #1 exceeded its goal, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to mail everybody their books. I can't afford to be so generous this time around!
Also, although I made efforts to securely package all the books and art, a few contributors got damaged goods in the mail. I want everyone to understand that I will be more than happy to replace/refund any books or art that arrive in poor condition. I do not want a single person to feel cheated in any way. Please be aware that I am an (extremely) fallible individual who tries his best to please, and is prepared to acknowledge mistakes. I will do whatever it takes to correct them.
Nonetheless, of all the recipients of the last book, the complaints were few. Overall, everybody seemed to like their books and art. The kind comments are deeply appreciated! I dearly hope that more people will jump aboard for future issues!
