The introduction of another character we might–and our characters certainly–consider disfigured offered us an interesting opportunity: We get to show the notion of degree, where different characters perceptions contrast not only each other, but the in-book society itself.

It’s been a rocky road for us this year, and what gets bumpy at home tends to send its ripples through Three Point Comics, a hazard of the marriage-business combo. Rachel’s health is finally repaired and we’re celebrating by returning to our update schedule for Tightrope.

We’ll be posting once a week on Thursdays, and ramp back up to our regular twice weekly updates. Thank you for all the good thoughts and wishes sent our way as Rachel mended. And now, on with the show!

We began TRO with a true beginning: the context for the Nova/Novoteny family as it welcomed its newest member. The Conrads get quite the opposite treatment, as Anthony emerges more and more strongly from the back drop of Nova’s life.

This scene finally gives him the status he deserves, thrusting him into the spotlight at last as he appears in the midst of his own life, without the context of The Good Doctor. But still, his story maintains a sense of immersion. His struggles both past and present are not meant to be taken as newly begun, but as ongoing challenges that he’s been grappling for an unknown period of time. Sometimes mysteries are only as deep as the distance between one person another.

Major props to Leonardo Da Vinci for his influence here. This was one of Nick’s first major departures in style, created even as he was determining the overall style for TRO. Being able to incorporate a number of different illustration styles is quite a talent. But being creatively free to do so is something else. With a project as long as this one, Nick was feeling a little hemmed in. Not one to put up unnecessary obstacles, Rachel suggested that instead of drawing each volume the same way, that Nick…do whatever he wants! What’s the point of a creative project, after all, but to experiment, change and refine? Expect to see a major shift in illustration style between the first and second books of The Radiant Ones.

Isn’t it just like Conrad to put those fussy corner protectors on an article about himself? Seeing how the different characters treat the newspaper is almost as telling as the contents of the articles. And speaking of news…

We’ve launched our downloadable content section, woo hoo! Not only can you pick up a copy of Ham’n Eggs on the cheap, but we’ve got a never-before-released short story and FREE game rules for all you tarot fans out there. There will be more content going live there soon, as we work toward the publication of Rachel’s novel, as well as some more shorts. Oh, and Tightrope will be back before you know it!

More than novels, more than films, more than photography… Comics have it all, as far as we’re concerned.

We’ve got every flavor from romance to sci-fi to historical fiction, all character-driven and gorgeously illustrated.

Jolek gets more than he bargains for when he becomes the new strongman in The Circus with More. Filled with mystery, drama and amazing performances, Tightrope is circus noir like you’ve never seen it before.
