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!
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!
More than half-way done! If you’ve liked what you’ve seen so far, make sure you join us at our FB fan page, or share this site to your friends via FB, Twitter, or e-mail!
Some of you know that this story is based on a board game, appropriately called Belfort. It was designed by the co-writer of this comic book, and his partner Sen-Foong Lim. The story of how the game came to be (and the rest of their board game design adventures), can be found here. Jay will be doing an autograph signing at Connection Games & Comics this Saturday in Vancouver, and all of the info you will need for that can be found here. Come out and support Jay and the success of Belfort!
If I remember correctly, this was one of the first pages that Rob did for us, and I remember just how lucky Jay and I felt. This was the first (and there were many more after this) time that Rob took what we wrote and improved upon it. The panel with the tree in particular worked better than we could have ever imagined, and Rob”s backgrounds here are phenomenal (And they get even better!)

Hello again, welcome to page two! The full version of this can be accessed by clicking here, or at the Belfort link directly above this post. As you can see, our story is starting to kick into high gear, and in this page people who have played the game that Tales of Belfort is based on (Belfort, by Tasty Minstrel Games), can see the similarities between the game and the comic starting to come together.
We’ve made some small changes since last week. You can now follow our Facebook page here, and can also follow us on Twitter here .

We’ve also added a Facebook share button at the bottom of our posts, so that it’s easy for you to share our work with your friends and family, which we hope you do! Don’t forget, Condo Of Mystery is updated with a new page every Monday. See you next week, and let us know what you think of our latest page.
We’ve had a lot of great response so far to our first comic, but the one thing everybody has asked was: “What, only a cover?”. Well, true believers, your wait is over. Here it is, the first official page of story by Jay Cormier, myself (Tim Reinert), and Rob Lundy. Go to the “Belfort” link directly above this post to click on the full image of this page. We hadn’t (and still haven’t) met Rob at the time that he sent this first page through, and so seeing his take on our first page made us realize how lucky we were to have found him for this project.
Hello! This is the cover of the very first webcomic created by Jay Cormier, myself, and Rob Lundy. Unlike most webcomic sites, which focus on one specific storyline, we will be exploring many, and we will be doing short stories as well as longer multiple chapter comics. The site will be updated with one page every Monday to start, so please add us to your RSS feeds. A better version of this first image can be found here, or at the Belfort link above this post. There will literally be something for everybody here, as no genre will be off limits. Sci-Fi, Western, Crime, and even Super-Hero….we’ve got big plans for them all.
Now, please come in, and enter THE CONDO OF MYSTERY….
