Externality at E-merl.com

Just like reality. Only different. Externality is a new ongoing hypercomic series updating every day (or so) at E-merl.com. But just what is the series about?

"It’s kind of a companion piece to the Nile Journals on Serializer" clarified series creator, Daniel Merlin Goodbrey. "They’re both journal comics of a sort. Although Externality’s focus and execution is going to be pretty far removed from Nile’s. And from reality in general, I guess."

The piece is the second work to benefit from Goodbrey’s recent invention, the webcomic delivery system known as The Tarquin Engine.

"I’ve been working on improvements to the Engine for a while and I wanted a chance to show off the latest version," explains Goodbrey. "Using Tarquin means I can update the comic quickly each day, simply dragging and dropping the artwork as I go."

"I’m not sure how long Externality is going to run for yet. At least a month, I should think. With an improvised piece like this, you really just have to wait for a suitable ending to suggest itself."

And is Goodbrey at all concerned that he just interviewed himself for this press release?

"Oh no, not at all. I mean - this is practically sanity for me. Relatively speaking."
