Hey thanks for your interest in my comics - and for your questions! Yep, I've been working on some new Wulf and Batsy stories! Over the years that I was originally doing Wulf and Batsy comics (starting in Dec.1999) and self-publishing them on my own (from roughly 2008-2017) I was bursting with ideas for stories (long, short, and in-between) about the characters. But because I was doing the comics in spare time, on the side of my day job and married life, I really had to choose my battles about which stories to focus on, if I expected to get anything done. Every once in a while I'd find time to knock out a short story. But mostly during those years I felt a burning desire to really do something substantial - long, graphic-novel length stories with large casts of characters. Those felt like "the important" Wulf and Batsy stories. Each one felt like climbing Mt.Everest and each one was bigger than the one before it. Along the way I kept getting ideas for other, shorter, simpler Wulf and Batsy stories I wanted desperately to do, but forced myself to just write them down and set them aside. I am a "one project at a time" kinda guy. I can work on comics on the side of my day job but if I tried to do 2 comics projects on the side of my day job, I would get distracted and my big graphic novel length stories (the "important" ones) might suffer or take even longer to finish. Well, now, with those big complex stories out of the way, I finally have time to go back into my folders of old story ideas I loved but never had time for, and actually draw them as finished comics. And it feels so satisfying to finally get around to doing these. So the plan for Alterna is, to break up my big graphic novels into normal comic book sized issues and publish them as story arcs in an ongoing comic book series. And then slide these new comics (based on my backlog of old, shorter, simpler story ideas) in between the big story arcs, as stand-alone issues. Sort of like short sweet palette cleansers in between the main courses! As for difficulty of coming up with new ideas? That seems to be one problem I've never had. I can never seem to turn off the monster-comic-idea-machine in my head. If anything I come up with more ideas than I have time to draw. So I just keep writing them down and thinking, "Someday I will get to that one, too!"
