The Past is Prolog - Chapter Two

Hello there folks! 

I bring you the second episode of "The Past is Prolog" featuring Montgomery Thump and Timbuk too. Chapter Three will follow on Monday, April 14 2014. Enjoy this lighthearted moment as our characters prep the plot and showcase a little more about who they are.

Hahaha! I love this moment between Timbuk and Dump. The chemistry and friendship portrayed here is rivaled only by the subtle way our heroes spotlight the creative process...which seems to be a recurring feature of this series. ;) Awesome work, Charles!! Can't wait for more!

You do love Australian animals as I can see, Charles. You drew a kanguroo and a koala, with Montgomery Thump and Tiimbuk, and you drew a bandicoot with Crash. Maybe you shuold make a cameo of Crash Bandicoot in your new show, don't you think?. Good work, Charles. Can't wait to see more.

Interesting, It appears as if you're setting up the idea that these characters are in control of their world? I always like cartoony characters like that.

Good joke as well, but I still cannot give full criticism/review. You can expect that a few parts down the line.

Thanks for your thoughts and comments guys. As always they're much appreciated. Chapter Three is prepped and ready to go for Monday. It'll take you another step into the narrative.

There's a significant behind the scenes history to this project that I'll elaborate upon at some future date. For now enjoy it for what it is and feel free to offer your reviews when the time is right on your part.

Hey Charles! Once again, long time no see!

I apologize if I haven't caught up on your magnum opus. From the looks of it, I'm very interested in it and I'm loving what you have planned now and in the future.

Hey Charles, did you know that this year is the 30th anniversary on the founding of Naughty Dog? It sure is and to celebrate it, they're releasing an art book spanning from Crash to their most recent projects! Check it out:

Charles, you wouldn't by any chance be involved in this?

Hey there Pat and thanks for the post. I was emailed earlier about the ND art of book.

Haven't been contacted in any way and I don't know if they will even think of it. My guess is very probably not. I would also expect a good deal of the usual propaganda coming from them. In their 30 year history they didn't have an art department for the first 20 outside of Joe Pearson and myself.

Hey guys! Do you think they'll write about their entire creative crew coming to train at my school in 1998 and in 1999? Seems to me to be a pretty important part of their 30 year art of history. Let's see if it's mentioned.

Good luck Pat, hope things are going great.

Chapter Three on the way.

Great work Charles EAch frame really looks nice. Just a curious question when the story is done will you'll pubish it into a book, or will it stay as a web comic on your site?

Charles Z said...

Hello Hunter and thank you. The story is never done my friend. ;) We'll see what happens and how things develop and we'll go from there. Chapter Three tomorrow.
