Almanac – Dragoons

March 29th, 2012

This week’s almanac update is dragoons. These multi-purpose military units did it all. They could charge like cavalry, dismount and fight on foot, and roam the countryside as scouts. They were also some of the cruelest units, responsible for collecting supplies and denying supplies to the enemy.

I also made an update to Page 6 of Law of the Riverside. I cut a comment by Ald from the script for space reasons, but Amy (our editor) was quite eloquent in defense of the quip so I’ve added it back in. The page has been updated, and you can find the new comment on panel 1.

Virginia Comicon is this weekend. Diane and I hope to see you there!

Law of the Riverside Page 6

March 27th, 2012

Page 6 of Law of the Riverside is up. Mathurin, gendarme of the Riverside, introduces himself with appropriate flair. I positively love the flashback panel that Naty did. For a great shot of the inside of the Three Sheets, vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Conventions aplenty coming up. This weekend, Diane and I are heading to VA Comicon in Richmond Virginia. Brittany and I will be attending Pittsburgh Comicon on April 20-22. All three of us will be at Otakon July 27-29.

On a different note, Helen of Narrative Investigations reviewed Snow by Night as part of her Webcomic Review Month. She seemed to enjoy the comic and even mentions our almanac as a bonus. Please, check out her review, and then go read all her other reviews. I did. She’s very insightful. And yes Helen, we will have lots of stories with the side characters. Ald is up right now. After that, I have a story featuring Vivienne, the governor’s daughter.

Fan Art Rendez-vous 5

March 25th, 2012

This week’s Fan Art Rendez-vous is Convince Me by Andrea Bell. As you can see in the illustration, she’s got a wicked sense of humor. Please check out Mistress, her comic of high adventure, high romance, and high fashion.

Oh, great news! We won the lottery to attend Otakon this July.


Almanac – Carbines

March 22nd, 2012

This week’s Almanac entry is Carbines – the weapon of choice of the dragoon (and therefore Ald). These nifty shortened muskets don’t have the accuracy of the standard musket, but you can use them from horseback and then let them dangle beside you on a hook and ring attached to a rail on the side of the carbine. Yeah, I geek out about stuff like this. This and historical architecture.

We have a convention coming up soon. Virginia Comicon. April 1 in Richmond. We’ll have chapters 1 and 2 as well as a variety of buttons. Brittany is out of town so I’m dragging Diane our Mad Alchemist Webmistress with me. It’s her first time manning the table. So come by and give her a hard time. I’m sure she won’t mind.

Almanac – Muskets

March 15th, 2012

In honor of Ald’s history in the military, this week’s Almanac entry is muskets. Muskets are a necessity in colonial Aradie just like they were in colonial North America. The importance of the musket can be seen by the number of phrases in our language that arose from muskets – lock, stock, and barrel, a flash in the pan, going off half cocked, and drop the hammer.

The Snow by Night team has received an invitation to Intervention on September 21-23 in Rockville, MD. This fabulous convention is a great way to meet a lot of creators of Internet media. It’s not just webcomics. They have a diverse array of guests. I highly recommend coming to check it out.

Law of the Riverside Page 4

March 13th, 2012

Almanac References: Greenhorn, Sing Small

Page 4 of Law of the Riverside is up. Ald throws down. And he throws down hard. To see a sneak peek of more of the fight, vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

The Snow by Night team will also be attending a couple of conventions next month. The first is VA Comicon down in Richmond, Virginia on April 1 (and this is no April Fool’s joke). It’s one day only, but they’ve got some incredible talent attending. I am flattered just to be one the same room as some of these artists.

The next is Pittsburgh Comicon in Pennsylvania on April 20-22. They have list of guests as long as your arm with some impressive artists on it. Come by and meet us in the Steel City.
