I suppose it’s time that I spoke up around here. :)
I want to thank everyone who comes to this site to see what Nathan and I are doing. I have a lot of fun thinking up different haikus, especially in the current story line, but none of this would be possible if Nathan didn’t have the ability to draw it all out. It’s great seeing a haiku drawn out and seeing how someone else interprets your thoughts. While we seem to be thinking the same thing 95% of the time, its that 5% that makes each comic a joy to see for the first time once it has been drawn.
As Nathan said, while zombies may be taking up a lot of space on the site right now, fear not as other creatures will be showing up in the future. Heck, who knows, maybe we’ll even come up with something that isn’t morbid some day. I wouldn’t hold your breath, but it’s always possible. So have fun, ready the comics, and enjoy the site.
Oh yeah, I think this pushes Nathan’s welcome message off the page. So click back and see what he has to say.
It needs to be said, so I’ll say it: Welcome. Thank you for stopping by. I think I speak for my brother as well when I express the hope that you find our little comic enjoyable and that you might stop by again. Our current publishing schedule is Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with additional news updates as required.
Haiku Comics is written by my brother, Robert Olsen, and drawn by me, Nathan Olsen. This collaboration began tentatively just a few weeks ago at Bob’s suggestion, and I’ve personally found the experience to be great fun. While the focus has thus far been on the undead, we have left the door open to exploring other pastures as we see how things progress. For now, however, I hope that you really enjoy zombies, because as I look over the schedule for the next few weeks, it’s all zombies, all the time.
Tomorrow we will be beginning our first multi-part storyline, which should serve as a gentle reminder to the reader of the threat posed by the undead during casual night-time strolls through one’s neighborhood parks and cemeteries. Remember, if you must be out at night, please walk briskly. And keep a wooden stake and cross with you at all times. Only constant vigilance can quell the rising rate of attacks by the undead during this global pandemic.
Don’t be a victim. Be alert. Be prepared. And travel in groups whenever possible.
