As Testing Day draws to a close, we are happy to tell you that you can now purchase the Seventh PostScript Collection online. Whoo! Like all the other PostScript books, this one is a beautifully printed, full-colour masterpiece. Book 7 features Testing Day, and collects the final PostScript strips for your something-physical, support-the-creators, take-to-a-deserted-island, read-post-apocalypse book collection. Yes, we said: “final PostScript strips”. This is our last comic strip collection before we move onto other formats. If you have the rest of the books, this is the time to complete your set, you diligent completest you. If you have none yet, this is the time to get ’em all!
We have also added some new prints to the store. For those who saw us in Calgary and Toronto or follow us on Facebook, you will be familiar with them. For the rest of you, behold! (“Behold” is a link, you should click it now, and go check them out.) We’re pretty proud of them.
All in all, we hope you enjoy our final offerings from PostScript Comic. Next up: some pretty cool surprises.
Stay funny, friends.
We are proud to present Testing Day. Testing Day is simultaneously the final PostScript story we are posting here online, and the first of the larger PostScript stories we will tell.
Three years ago, with a few exceptions, we stopped comic strip production. On the surface, three words sum up the story: “work”, “house”, and “baby”. Underneath, things were different. Life’s disruptions broke us from our routine. With the space this gave, we looked at all the creative projects we had shelved for years because we were doggedly producing strips. Some of those projects looked pretty good, so we decided to pursue them.
Along with finally wrapping Wand Thief–one should never go on hiatus one strip into a new arc–we have quietly worked on the aforementioned new projects offline, and you will see them in due course. Testing Day, a story set in the world of PostScript, but one that breaks free of our traditional format. Testing Day is but a taste of our future plans. You can expect further projects with greater narrative and visual complexity than the online strip format allows. They will not all be in the PostScript universe, they will not all be comics or picture books, and they will not all be funny, but they will be stories we hope you will enjoy. We know we will enjoy them.
Starting next Wednesday, May 17th, and until Thursday, June 1st, we will post a page from Testing Day each weekday. You will notice a significantly different format relative to previous PostScript strips, but we are confident you will like them. After Testing Day is finished, we will maintain this site. As we release new projects, we will let you know about them here, our Facebook page, Instagram, or via Graham and Neal’s Twitter feeds.
Despite our new direction, we are very proud of the strips that we produced over the years. It was fun, and we learned a lot. We hope you had fun, too.
Stay funny, friends.
