For those of you who don’t know, I started doing comics way back in 2000 with Gods & Undergrads, my first foray into webcomicking. (and for those of you interested in my process, I go into the details on my four part process for creating comics here!)
Gods & Undergrads is the story of Lelaina Pentheus, a college sophomore. At the beginning of the comic, she’s applying for residency on campus. And over the course of 2 1/2 books, Lelaina meets friends, falls in and out of love, and discovers that her relatives are Greek gods.
When I first started G&U, I was pretty regular with updating the comic. But, over the years my updates grew more and more sporadic. Many people stopped reading, many people yelled at me, and most people suggested I stop doing this comic already. So while all that was happening, I worked on other comics and even created a NEW webcomic – Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five. Buuuuutttt … well, I never wanted to stop doing good ol’ G&U.
I’m just not finished with the story yet. What makes it awkward is how much the story and the art and the style have changed over the years. Even though I look back at the earlier pages (and the later, let’s be honest) and I cringe, I’m going to keep plowing ahead until … well, until the end.
Anyhoo. This is a LONG, drawn out way of saying that where we last left off in the story:
