Hello and welcome back to the new and (hopefully) improved Back Office 😀
Yepp, I’ve flipped everything around, and Back Office now uses the same layout as Bata Neart. This was down to a few reasons, but the main reason was that the comic-strip format of what I will now call ‘Classic Back Office’, made it regularly difficult to layout and plan pages. Also, originally Back Office was planned as a gag-a-day strip comic, however since then this comic has become a long-form adventure series that just doesn’t work too well in a letter-box.
In addition, I can now start posting Back Office up onto the likes of Taptastic, which wasn’t really ideal in the Classic format. So I’m going to try that out and see how it goes.
FYI, just like Bata Neart, all Back Office stories will conform to a 20 page limit with updates in 5 week blocks. Here is a break-down of how it works:
With 20 being the target number, the updates are broken into 5-page blocks, separated by 1-week update breaks. This means that you will get 5 weeks of updates, followed by no update for one week, and then another 5 weeks with updates. It’ll look like this for a standard chapter.
X = Update, O = No update
X-X-X-X-X – O – X-X-X-X-X – O – X-X-X-X-X – O – X-X-X-X-X
The breaks are kind of needed by me. They allow for weeks when I can’t update, and at times when all is well, they will help prop up the Update Buffer.
In conclusion, welcome back, thank you for your endless patience with me, and I hope you enjoy this brand new chapter.
