Chapter 2, Milestone 2 reached!

Today I have the pleasure to report that I reached my second milestone with Chapter 2 of the Wormworld Saga. I'm completely on schedule and I hope to be able to finish the next two milestones and actually a good portion of the last milestone in November so that I'll have enough time for editing, layout and special app content in December.

It feels great to work consistently and without much disturbance on the graphic novel. Finally I'm able to make the progress that you and I were so eagerly waiting for. To reward your patience I've got three preview panels from the second milestone to share with you:

So, I'm directly starting with my work on Milestone 3 which I hope to finish before the end of next week.

Until then you might enjoy the first episode of the 'Making Comics Podcast' that just went online on Jason and I had a good time recording this. We speak about our own projects and try to explain what this podcast is going to be about and what guests you can expect on future episodes of the show.

I also want to announce that there is an update of the Wormworld Saga App available that fixes some issues that you may have experienced if you have updated your iPad to iOS 5.

Alright, back to work then!


  1. Daniel, you're truly a master of lightining. All your drawings have such a beautiful light that they look more like memories than cartoons. Great job, as always. Keep it going!!

  2. Thanks, Nebo! I really enjoy the fact that there's a lot of sunlight in Chapter 2. In Chapter 1 we saw Grannie's old farmhouse and it's surroundings only at night. In Chapter 2 there will be real summer vacation feeling with warm sunlight and glowing light patches inside the woods. I'm sooo looking forward to present the next chapter to you all!

  3. Hi Daniel

    I agree totally with Nebo. Never seen pictures like yours before. It really makes them come alive in my head.

  4. wunderschön.
    Werden eigentlich Prints mit Bildern aus den kommenden Kapiteln verfügbar sein? Ich würde nämlich gerne ein Print kaufen, aber nicht zu voreilig sein.

  5. @ Isabel:

    Jawohl, es wird die schönsten Panels von Kapitel 2 auch als Print-Collection geben.

    And since this answer might be interesting for the english speakers, too: there will be prints of a selection of panels from Chapter 2 in the future.

  6. man, dude, waaaaaaah!
    i just can't wait! i'm going nuts here! it just looks so awesome!
    the lightning, the characters, the surroundings! it's just perfect (oh, god, and now I almost feel like a stalker^^)

  7. freu mich.

  8. Good luck on your work. :) You can be sure that once you finish next chapter I'm gonna tell all my comic drawing friends about it.

  9. Hiya! I can notice that you really understand what you are speaking about here. Do you a special education that is related with the theme of the entry? Many thanks in advance for your reply.
