I know... does the Internet really need another webcomic. Not really. But then, when has that ever stopped anyone? So, welcome to my new comic: WoT now?

So, if you haven't read The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, you're not going to understand a damn thing. It's a niche comic and purely for entertainment. I hope to have at least one loyal reader. Also, I can't say I've figured out an update schedule. I'm going to try the Monday, Wednesday, Friday thing to see if I can do it but I'll be honest, I'm not sure I can. At the very least, I'll update twice a week.

What the hell is this? It's a parody. It's irreverent and stupid. I've read all the books and liked them, although I was pretty pissy somewhere around Lord of Chaos... that book was really weak. There's a lot of material to work from and I like to think I'm at least a little funny. So, for all you purists: this is for fun! I follow no particular chronology in the books so I'll probably reference events in all of the 9 books (that means beware of spoilers). There will be singleton strips, but there will also be story arcs, the first of which begins in the next strip.

As you may have noticed, I'm not an artist. The sprites are based on Megaman 7 style sprites. Most are adapted from other artists who you will find credited on the Cast page. I've tried to make it visually appealing with reasonably detailed backgrounds. I'll be adding more characters over time as I'm able to make new sprites or con a talented spriter into doing some for me. If you're a spriter and want to help me out, by god, E-Mail me! There's only one MM7 female (Roll) and I can't for the life of me use her to create all the female characters.

Until the forum gets set up by the good people at Keenspace (which could take a while) please feel free to e-mail your comments to me (click on the Contact button). I'd love to hear if anyone actually reads this.

As for today's comic, I know there's a long standing tradition in martial arts for naming particular stances and movements, but you've got to admit they got a little weird in WoT. This is what happens when a bored geek comes up with his own stances.
