Zokusho is a thrice-weekly webcomic I write chronicling the stories of extraordinary people living across the connected planes–a collection of worlds that are interconnected by the Interplanes, the time and space coordinates of least resistance. The worlds each have their own quirks and idiosyncrasies, but the common thread throughout all of them is the presence of magic, a force that people study and manipulate to do everything from hurling fireballs to teleporting across the multiverse.
If I were to boil it down to its essence, I’d describe Zokusho as “Dungeons and Dragons in a modern setting, as imagined by a guy who watched way too much anime growing up.” If that sounds like something you’d be interested in reading, check with us every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to see the continuing stories. I’ll try not to disappoint you.
Q: Wait a minute, you’ve only got about 3 readers! How could you get any frequently asked questions?
A: Shut up and let me indulge my ego by pretending people want to hear about this, okay?
Q: So when exactly do you update?
A: Well, I post a new page every Sunday and Thursday night, right before I go to bed. I have to get up early for my day job, so I usually wind up posting right around 10:00 PM Central time.
Q: So are all the comics going to be about Serge’s wacky antics?
A: Actually, no. Serge was the first character I developed when Zokusho was still in the concept stages, so I have more story ideas about him than anyone else, but I assure you that there’ll be a lot of other stories centering all kinds of other characters.
Q: So if you’re the writer, then who’s the artist, and how come we never hear from him? Do you have him chained up in a basement somewhere, just churning out page after page?
A: The primary artist behind Zokusho: Fracture was Brandon Franklin, a talented guy I met online and started collaborating with a few years ago. Any future Zokusho stories, unless otherwise noted, are illustrated by Landon Franklin, Brandon’s twin brother. You don’t hear from them because…well, mainly, they don’t spend much time on the internet. For the gods’ sake, they’re still on dial-up (I know, I know, I didn’t think people still had that anywhere either). Anyway, since I’ve got more experience with this kind of stuff, I’m the guy who runs the site, and by extension, you’ll see a lot more of me than you will of them. For the record, though–Landon does occasionally post in the comments section under the name “Lanky.”
