I am afraid that vir Bonus is going on a short hiatus (beginning last week). No new comic for the next week either.

Maybe some of these have already been noted, but in that case here they come again.
The Pulse has an interview with last years Eisner Digital comic award winner Brian Fies about his, now print, comic Mom's Cancer. The Pulse also throws Comixpedia editor Al Schroeder's Mindmistress some love in the "Intro to Webcomics" feature.

Well so much for writing regularly in the blog. I have three or four entries that are lying around unfinished, ideas not quite thought through yet.
This post in itself is almost a week late. The occasion, the second year anniversary of my webcomic, vir Bonus. It is a bitter sweet moment. While I am proud that I have kept at it for so long, I am also dissatisfied with the progress. Looking through the pages I've produced there are both that I am impressed by, and significantly more that are embarrassing. The story, which was intended as a rather short introductory story, has muted and twisted from the original idea and keep doing so. In many ways it is a better story than the original, but it is also longer and there are other stories I am aching to do. Both in the world of vir Bonus, but also others completely. I suppose that is the curse of an overactive imagination, to little time or perhaps in my case the unwillingness to devote more.
