Merek laments the days when overthrowing the Council was the only thing he had to worry about :'D

----

OKAY for the announcement. Not a HUuuge deal according to the poll I took a few weeks or months back with the exception of like 3 votes >_>........

I am moving forward with a title change!

image

"Serpents of the Old Nature" has the same meaning of the original title but sharpens it up even more in my opinion. To me this is a title I'd feel comfortable seeing in print or talking about. Feel free to still refer to it as "SoO" or "Serpents" or whatever you are used to calling it! I am also going to leave the URL the same because it's been there for so long.

I've started sketching the old pages and I figure I'll post the revamped scenes on a scene by scene basis..making sure the story remains cohesive with the old and new art at all points should new readers hop on board.

THIS IS NOT A REBOOT! New pages will still be updating every week. But I AM going to attempt to make this something I'd be proud to print some day. Expect to see the banner,title, and site start changing from here on out!

Hope you guys like it as much as I do!

I'll start in the middle, I guess, and point out that I think it was always something you could be proud of. I like the title update, so there's that. If it makes you feel better about things then that's a plus! If it's still Serpents, and you're still Serpy, then win-win! :D

So here we are, and Merek and the guys found, for the most part, what they half expected, and now faced with the reality of it, they're somewhat unprepared; not sure what to do. I've been in that sort of a situation. Not in a tomb, mind you, but . . . It's a weird feeling.

I notice you have a hue in the speech bubbles, now, instead of the plain white. It's a little less stark, in scenes like this. I like it. So with the news, and some changes, I have a positive feeling with this update!

Thank you so much, I really appreciate that feedback! I guess the title change is mostly for me haha...soo I'm glad people seem to understand and are happy with it! <3

Yesss it's not a great place to be in especially when the stakes are so high. A lot of people rely on Merek for protection............NO PRESSURE X"D

Yess I screwed up last page and forgot! Haha but yea I didn't like the plain white in darker scenes like this x"D

I'm so glad and thankyou so so much!

As Megados said, "If it's still Serpents, and you're still Serpy, then win-win!"

Merek: "Ok, overthrow the Council AND catch the monster. I can do this. I really can, right?"
"@#$%(@!"

So I guess we have to abbreviate the comic as "SotoN" for now on, eh? XD

When Merek doesn't know what to do next, you know it's a problem.

Then what? Hang onto your seats, cause it's going to be a bumpy ride from here on out, That's what!

I love the cover art, Serpy. I was worried that the Announcement was that you were gonna run away to Acapulco with the man of your dreams and leave the rest of us here broken-hearted... Whew, dodged a bullet on that one!

I like the new title! It has depth.(o_O)I say good call!

Oooh I like the drawing AND the title change! Will that image be for the cover? :3 I can not WAIT to hold this book in my hand!

Also I think Merek needs to go talk with Keymen and get some advice with this one, heh. And maybe a chat with Hizruk while he's at it (but not for advice LOL).

Quite frankly, I'd buy a printed version as is. I like it that much :D Though I completely understand where you're coming from. And I like the new title very much. I'll probably still refer to it as SoO or Serpents.

It'll be hard to not keeping seeing your comic as SoO, but I agree that the title change isn't so jarring that it throws things off, so I'm glad you made the change if it makes you happy with your project! Love the new avatar/banner btw :)
