Thursday Randomness: Frank & Hip Get Steampunked
Last week, I gave readers of the Lair their first look at my upcoming storyline for a Steampunk-inspired adventure called "Frank and Hip Get Steampunked." While I won't give up any story details, at this point, I've got another look at some of the graphic artwork I'm doing to get ready for this storyline. This picture just shows you Frank and Hip inside the cabin of a dirigible (which you saw in last week's sneak peak).
Part of what inspired this idea for a Steampunk storyline was reading Cherie Priest's Boneshaker. This was my second foray into the Steampunk genre as a reader, and I enjoyed it enough to explore the genre within my comic strip. As for what will happen to Frank and Hip, you'll find out in June.
In the meantime, don't forget to go vote for my Flash Fiction story "The Third Bear's Revenge" in Cherie Reich's contest. Visit her blog to cast your vote, and then I hope you'll linger to explore her corner of Cyberspace. You've got until tomorrow morning to cast your vote, so get on it! After all, Ted might break your legs if you don't.
Be sure to come back to the Lair tomorrow for Frank Friday's comic strip, and don't forget to submit your caption for this week's "You Write the Caption" contest.
