Zipper Update

Hello everyone. I realize it's been a while since you have heard from the creative team of ZIPPER. Thus, lest you think we have abandoned the comic, I am writing in today to let you all know that the comic is alive, well, and screaming to be let loose upon the masses!

That said, I cannot tell you how far along we are, but that jai' el is pumping out pages like mad! He's a busy man, but we keep in regular contact via email and the occasional IM chat. As he lives in Indonesia and I in Japan, you can imagine that it's a little on the rough side to contact each other. I am not sure about Internet connections in Indonesia, but I gather, from short exchanges about it, that it's not exactly the most stable or cheapest.

So while you all sit back and wait, I would like to hear from you all. What would you like to see on this page? I realize this is not an easy question to answer, but as I am a very customer-orientated kind of guy, I would like to know what you all are thinking, not only about the images that you have seen, but of the site. What would make it more interesting to you all?

Thanks for your time and attention.

Happy 2006!

Happy New Year everyone! 2006 is the year we plan to launch ZIPPER! Seems like spring is such a long way off, but before you realize it, launch day will be here, and the world'll be enjoying the comic (yes, we have THAT much confidence in it).

With all that firmly in mind, Jei el and I would like to personally thank you for sticking with this blog and the project until the time we can get it into your hot little hands. It's no small effort on the part of readers to stick with a project until full fruition, and we promise for those of you here, you will NOT be disappointed. We have been working hard on all aspects of this project. News doesn't seem to flow your way often, but everything in all due time.

That said, Jei el (remember to check his site regularly for superb non-Zipper work as well) has cooked up a beautiful color illustration of Zipper. We hope you will enjoy it! At 535 x 974 pixels, it's suitable for desktop wallpaper.
