Update, and a Sneak Peek

by on Apr.15, 2012, under Blog, Comic

We need to clear up some rumours:

1) We are still working on comics.

2) We have not had our brains taken over by alien slug people, thus killing our desire to work on comics.

3) We are not dead, which would significantly kill our desire to work on comics.

We’re back! It’s been a busy time for the Condo of Mystery team. Rob Lundy (artist responsible for Belfort & Seconds) has started a new job. Tim is finishing up courses that will allow him to start a new job, and Jay is busy being the hottest board designer in Lower East Vancouver. But our commitment to quality comic stories is undiminished!

Jay and Tim were in Seattle recently for ECCC, a fantastic comic con that focuses on comics first, TV shows second, and as such is a lot of fun. Lots of talented creators were met, lots of publishers were spoken too, and lots of comics were bought.

And now for our most exciting announcement….we will be back very soon with a BRAND NEW story! With a BRAND NEW artist joining the Condo Of Mystery Team! His name is Ian Wood, and his work can be found here.¬†The story is called “Sisters”, and Ian is doing some truly inventive and creative work in interpeting our script. We’re attaching half of an early sketch that Ian did that will be included in Sisters…just to give you an idea of what to expect. It’s very different from the work we’ve done so far, which we’re excited about.

See you soon…at the Condo Of Mystery

Seconds: Page 4 & 5!

by on Feb.20, 2012, under Blog, Comic

Well, we went on a bit of a hiatus there while we tweaked just enough of Seconds to make it perfect. So boo, but yay, in that we have 2 pages at once to unveil! Only one more page to go after this.

Don’t forget that you can access the whole story at the “Seconds” tab right above this text, as well as access our facebook fan page here. We’d love to hear from you, so make sure you go there and let us know what you think!

Seconds: Page 3!

by on Feb.07, 2012, under Blog, Comic

Seconds: Page 1!

by on Jan.23, 2012, under Blog, Comic

So as we said when we started this site, the goal wasn’t to create one long web comic, it was to create an “anthology” of short comic stories, featuring various genres and styles. And so we have Seconds, a six page story that couldn’t be more different in tone from Tales Of Belfot. The first page can be found by clicking the image to the left, or by going to the Seconds tab immediately above. This one is half science fiction, half love story, and we’re quite proud of it. We do ask that you actually give it to the end of the story to make a full judgement.

Also, don’t forget about our Facebook Fan Page, where you can get more updates on our work, as well as tell us how great/terrible we are. Enjoy the comic!

A little something from the drawing board

by on Jan.10, 2012, under Blog

Hey guys! My name is Rob and I’m the man behind the curtain that makes the pretty pictures. (Please ignore the “do not feed the artist” sign… it’s more of a guideline) So Tales of Belfort completed its first run last week and I hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I did drawing it. I’m currently knee deep in the production of our next comic which will hopefully hit the site next Monday barring zombie attacks and flying monkey break and enters.

We decided it might be a fun little thing to put some sketches I did when I was designing the main characters for tales of Belfort together and post it for any of you who are interested in that sort of thing. And just ’cause we love you all SO much… there are two pages of it available for you today.

Hope to see you here next week for our next story! Please fire us a comment on our facebook page. We love to hear from all of you.

Rob

Tales Of Belfort: Final Page!

by on Jan.03, 2012, under Blog, Comic

And we are done! This is the final page of our very first web comic, and we’re very excited about it. We hope you’ve enjoyed, and we want to make sure you go to our Facebook page and let us know what you think. We’ll be back soon about news on our next project, but today we want to give you some other news. Jay Cormier, the co-writer of Tales Of Belfort, is also the co-creator of Belfort, the fantastic board game that our comic was based on. Belfort has been popping up on a number of “Best Board Games Of 2011″ lists, including this one, so please make sure you go to your local board game shop and pick up a copy. There is also a much-anticipated expansion pack coming in 2012, so we’ll be posting news about that too. Congratulations Jay!

Tales Of Belfort: Page 8!

by on Dec.20, 2011, under Blog, Comic

Another page that could have been overly complicated in the hands of a lesser artist, Rob just blew us away with how tight the story was here. Don’t forget to join our Facebook fan page!

Tales Of Belfort: Page 7!

by on Dec.12, 2011, under Blog, Comic

When Jay and I started writing comics together one of our caveats was that we both wanted to create comics that actually took advantage of the medium. When you see this incredible page by Rob, I think you’ll agree that on this one, we came pretty close to accomplishing that. The tension that Rob built here, combined with the great use of shadow and light, and of course that bad-ass dragon, all helped make this one of my favourite pages in the whole thing. Please make sure you let us know what you think so far, and head over to our Facebook page so that you can follow our exploits!

Hey guys! Rob here, your friendly neighborhood Condo of Mystery artist. I just wanted to apologize for the complications with the comments over the last couple of days. Seems we forgot to install the Spam blocker plugins before the site went live. The problem should be all fixed now and we welcome you comments with open arms! Sorry for any inconvenience, and we look forward to your feedback!
