I’ve been wondering since we launched the Egesta Comics website and began posting content to it, whether or not people were annoyed or confused by the fact that what we were adding was poster images and not actual comic book story pages.
After all, this is meant to be an ongoing Dressed For Success web comic site. So what are we doing?
It has been part of the history of Dressed for Success to take popular movie posters and create parodies starring our characters Alex and Walter. In the early days of the mini comics we would actually use them as issue covers. In fact, the first 13 issues of our 25 issue mini comics run sported covers based on popular movie posters. So as Chris and I were planning the launch of the website we thought it might be fun to bring these back and start off with a number of new examples.
We like to think of them as a series of teasers for potential stories yet to come. Plus they are just plain fun to do. Truth be told, some of them may be more than just a tease for what to expect. Once the ongoing story has started we still intend to put out the occasional parody movie poster but we will find somewhere else on the site to house them.
So while it may be slightly annoying for those of you who want to jump right into the meat and potatoes of the new adventures of Alex and Walter, I would simply ask for your patience. Just consider these like the trailers at the movie theatre before the main attraction.
Oh, and while you’re at it, make sure to turn off your cell phones and pagers.
