Helping Hocusha

I haven't been posting on this blog for a while, but it suddenly occurred to me I could use it to mention some of the writing I've been doing of late, starting with something I helped co-write; the end to chapter 7 of the wonderful webcomic Hocusha.

The creator of Hocusha, Vig Starmax, was suffering from a case of the dreaded writer's block, and his excellent webcomic was on indefinite hiatus. I was fortunate enough to be a fan of Hocusha and to have worked briefly with Vig on another project, so when he posted a call for help I was quick to offer my assistance.

Vig put together a Hocusha bible containing character notes, setting, and over-arching plot details, and from that I helped work out an ending for the chapter he was stuck on. I got to write the dialogue and give some page layout suggestions, and Vig took that and made it much better.

Now Vig seems to be inspired once again to write and draw Hocusha, and it looks like there's a long series of adventures to look forward to. I for one can't wait to see what Vig does next with Hocusha.

You can read Hocusha here ... my contributions started from page 10 of Chapter 7.
