The Complete Gaia – Status update, No. 2

I’ve made significant progress regarding the planned comic anthology The Complete Gaia. As you may already know, it will contain the whole comic and the best fanart in two fully colored A4 hardover volumes. It will very likely be published as part of a Kickstarter campaign once the end of the comic is in sight.

Here’s a status update. Everything with a check mark has been done or at least been almost done.

The Complete Gaia

  • ✓ Workflow how to create the book
  • ✓ General page layout
  • ✓ Concept for the design of both covers
  • Artwork section on 40 pages
    • ✓ Selection of all pieces of artwork (around 100 drawings)
    • ✓ Page layout of all 40 pages

However, there’s also still a lot to do. But I’m confident that I will get everything done in time.

Gaia: sic mundus creatus est

This will be a supplementary making-of book containing all of the following on about 60 pages in a black-and-white A4 hardcover volume:

  • ✓ Introduction to the Comic
  • ✓ From Script to Finished Page: various examples given
  • ✓ Setting: history, geography, society, magic, and more!
  • ✓ Untold Stories: planned but unused plot points
  • ✓ Cast: info about all the characters
  • ✓ Author commentary: hints, secrets and opinions about more than 250 pages
  • Sketches
  • ✓ Glossary

The following is also done:

  • ✓ Workflow how to create the book
  • ✓ General page layout
  • ✓ Concept for the design of the cover

I’ve written more than 22,000 words for the book! Only the sketches and the stuff related to the yet unreleased chapters are still missing. So this book is already in a very good shape!

PS: The Latin phrase means “Thus, the world was created.” in English. It’s taken from the Netflix series Dark and a perfect fit for a making-of book in my opinion.
