While looking for a suitable Soundtrack Interlude for this chapter, I stumbled across the impressive music from Two Steps from Hell.
I felt their song Juggernaut best expresses the relentless advance of the battle droids.
As I start my work on Chapter 10, I'll be exploring new format options for this webcomic. I've been getting the feeling that using a blog format for this webcomic is becoming unwieldy, if it isn't already.
Normally, webcomics are formatted like Christopher Mills and Gene Gonzales' Perils on Planet X, with the most recent page displayed and an archive section, along with a cast of characters and other interesting side-sections.
I'd like to reformat Breakout from Bongolaan in this way, but I want to do it right--and only once. So for now, I'll be researching webcomic set-ups and templates.
Webcomic writers usually post 1-3 new pages per week. Due to the nature of my job, with its rotating shift, I won't be able to duplicate this kind of schedule. I'd rather continue my updates in chapter-sized chunks.
Your patience is appreciated and I hope you enjoy the story.
I'm a retired USAF TACP (Tactical Air Control Party) member, now working for Washington State Emergency Management. In addition to being an Emergency Operations Specialist at my day/night/weekend job, I'm a Foreign Affairs Specialist, gamer and writer.
I maintain three blogs as an on-line platform. "Stern Rake Studio," my central site, explores a variety of topics on gaming, pop-culture and writing. "Station WTFO" is where I post comments and discussions on the national and international issues that concern us. Finally, "The Redshift Chronicles," is a spin-off of "Stern Rake Studio." This site focuses on sci-fi gaming and is home to my long-form webcomic "Breakout from Bongolaan."
