Hey everyone..it's Z. Mix

Well, Welcome to the Show has officially wrapped up.
So what is next.

For now..I will be taking a small break from doing comics in general, But it will only be for a short period of time. 
I got several projects I have lined up, so I won't be posting here for a little while, but I will go ahead and announce what I plan on the next two chapters for CRUSH

First new chapter is called OUR SECRET LIVES; it will be a slower chapter, more based on character developement than action (although there will be some). It's gonna be more similar to an anthology, acting as smaller shorts rather than one continuous story. 
The chapter following that, as of now, will be titled WRATH OF THE WOLF, where we are introduced to Crush's first real big bad, Frostmane. 

Also for the future, I am gonna stray away from the weekly schedule. Not because it's hard, but mostly because I don't feel the quality as good as I would like.

I'm also gonna be working on pilots for other story ideas, one being about space pirates (THE JOLLYROGERS) and a dimension hoping elf in a sci/fantasy motif (VALKIRA) along with a Crush spin-off (LEGION:COVENANT). I do plan on doing turn arounds and enviromental pieces to go along with all my projects, so I have lots to do.

Quick update.

Went to the doctor's today. No Carpal Tunnel, but it does look like I DID sprain my wrist. Looks like it's at the tail end of that, but I am still gonna delay the next page to rest up.

Hey everyone, it's Z. Mix.

I know I've been soft on the Updates..but normally I don't like dropping one of these unless something important is happening. But I do think this is one of those times.

I may have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. 

I'm taking some home self care stuff as of now, but will get it looked at in a couple of days. So the ending of Welcome to the Show! is likely going to be delayed for a bit.

Sorry fo the inconvenience. Thank you for the continued support.

Hey everyone, it Z Mix.

Just as an Update..I've kinda packed myself with a few projects and with work being kinda hectic and wonky..I will have to delay the next page by a week. But in the mean time, I will post some extra pics as an apology. 

Thanks for your continued support.

Hey everyone, It Z. Mix again...with a bit of a super late update.

Back into the swing of things, have been for a while actually. Now working on completing Welcome to the Show!

Afterwards, I have a few directions I can go, which I have the next few chapters in my head planned out. Or possibly start on a Villain centric project. Haven't made any final descisions yet.

But don't be afraid to leave a comment, see where you think we should go next.

Also, if you are feeling generous, feel free to subscribe to my Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/ZMix . Keep in mind, you'll still be able to read this for free, it will all be gratuity. And it will be most appreiciated.

Hey everyone, it Z. Mix

 

Unfortunately today, I am bringing a bit of bad news for you. 

As of late, my life has gotten a bit more hectic. And for the forseeable future, it isn't gonna slow down. My job is gonna get crazy (I work a full-time position in retail for those of you who may not know) in the next upcomming months, and with other aspects in my real life, along with other ideas that I have in my head that are just stewing, I have come to a descision. 

Next week, after I drop the next page of Crush: Welcome to the Show!; I will not be posting new pages for the rest of the year. 

Does that mean I am stopping all production of CRUSH? Not in the least. I still will be working on pages for her story, it will just go at a much slower pace. I love her, and quite frankly, Winston (The Black Magic Rabbit) is one of my favorite creaions I have ever made, so I'm not putting an end to it. I mostly do this because I want to give you the best I can as far as the CRUSH story goes. With everything that will come down the pipe, I don't just want to pump out a page solely to make some self imposed deadline, despite it's quality. That would be unfair. 

I also have quite a few other projects I wish to work on. One of them actually being a spin-off of Crush, staring her Arch-Nemesis Legion. This story will be called Legion:Covenant. It will still take place in the CRUSHVERSE proper, and will be canon, but her tale will be much darker and way more violent. That is still in preproduction and working on ideas and designs for this now. It's going to be a Four Chapter Arc, which I'm trying to keep in proper Comic Book range (20-25 page).

The other major project is the Jollyrogers. They are a band of space-fairing pirate bunnies. This is designed to be more along the lines of a Saturday Morning Cartoon. Kinda silly overall, but a bit of a pallet cleasner for me. 

 

I hope you all wish to stick around for this journey with me.

Thank you for your continued support,

Housesitting, No Comic Next Week

by Zak Mix on 25th Jul 2018, 8:58 AM

Hey guys, it Z. Mix.

 

My folks are going out of town this up comming week. So I will not have access to my computer at that time. There willl be no new page next week.

Happy Birthday Crush!

by Zak Mix on 20th May 2018, 9:41 AM

Hey Everyone, it Z.Mix

First off, today (5/20) is Kristina's Birthday! Been drawing her for 14 years now. It has been quite some time for me and her. 

Lil update on the comic production..it's going slower than I expected. I honestly want to get more done, but I am finding it harder and harder to do. Not from a lack of motivation, but from a combo of work, other projects I want to do, and other real life activities puts a stain on my ability to work on the comic at hand. Doesn't mean I won't, it just some periods of time will be harder than others. And it would be unfair to make you guys wait forever for plot lines for future chapters. So far, I have at least 12 additional chapter I want to do, and that is not including potential slower chapters I may want to throw in, smaller world building comics, and hell, I even thought of plans for Crush to be transported to a high fantasy world and having adventures there. So a ton of content and only one me to do it as of right now. I'm still tossing around ideas of how to handle it..but hopefully I will find something.

If you want to help out, please drop by my Patreon and drop a buck in the till. Remember, Crush in it's web comic form, will always be free to read. This is money is to help expand Crush into future and better things.
