The O Men 2008

So what’s in store for The O Men in 2008?
First, let’s look at 2007.
What a disaster!!! I think I managed a grand total of two issues, and the final issue there completely burned me out and I wasn’t even gonna do any drawing for the rest of the year because of it. However, the creative urge proved too strong and I’m currently getting on well with issue 2.6 - in fact there are only 11 pages left to finish off (mostly boring backgrounds to sort out, my favourite, lol). So I reckon that’ll be out in Feb, maybe. Issue 2.6 finishes off the three-part ‘Team-Building’ storyline, with a traitor revealed, a very nasty falling out, and at least one team-member leaving...
Then the plan is to release the second Volume Two collection and issue 2.7 at Bristol 2008 - yes, I’m gonna be at Bristol this year, after a year off! So lord knows how I’ll get the second collection together (it has that very awkward double-page spread issue in it), but issue 2.7 will be a really landmark issue, with some major, major developments. I’m really looking forward to this one - have been for ages - and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
And after that...there’ll be another O-break - the plan being to focus on Spandex for a year, all being well, releasing the project at Bristol 2009 (although I’m not gonna pressure myself too much - I want to enjoy it). Anyway, Spandex should be a lot of fun and a unique read - the plan is to release it as a 120-page digest graphic novel.
And after that, it’s the final storyline of O Men season two (which should consist of five issues), heading into the series finale, season three, which should be two or three large issues.
And that should really be it.

When you put it like that, it sounds like it'll all be over soon. I don't like the sound of that at all!
