One storyline down, thousands to go!

This Storyline 1 entry posted at 2:14 PM on January 31, 2006

It's a wrap! Local Heroes' storyline 1—"Enter: Squire!"—has come to a finish. The Local 37 supergroup was able to thwart the plans of the malevolent Microbot and recover the Summit DVD-ROM. Congratulations, team!

But don't worry, faithful ones! This isn't the end of the Local Heroes saga! Be here on Monday for the start of a new storyline, as Silent Knight takes Squire out on his first neighborhood patrol.

The new storyline is written and penciled by Gil Dowling. You probably remember Gil teaming with me on another Local Heroes project—our stand-alone strip called "The Mentalist's New Clothes" that we created for the Webcomic Hurricane Relief Telethon in September 2005. Old school fans will be quick to also mention Gil and I first worked together on "A Girl and Her Wookiee," a webcomic once published bi-weekly by SWG Stratics.

I've seen a handful of Gil's pencils for the next storyline, and I have to say that they're looking great! I can't wait for everyone to see the final versions. Make sure to mark Monday on your calendars!
