Hello, everyone! I've been a member of Smackjeeves for awhile, but only uploaded a couple pages of an unrelated comic....I also host this comic over at Comic Fury, and post some of this stuff on my DeviantArt account.

I usually wonder the best way to give backstory sometimes, so I figure just outlining a few things early on, on it's own page might be the best way.

Hope you guys enjoy the comic, and what it becomes!

This sounds interesting :D But just something I thought might be of advice is; to show not tell. For instance, instead of long spread text, narrate along with pictures so people can feel more absorbed into the world from the get-go. Anywho, it's fine like this as well, i suppose. Just thought it'd be more effective the former way.
Keep it up :D

I certainly see what you're saying, in fact I'm largely against lots of text in relation to pictures, but there's a somewhat long story as to why I am doing these chapters this way.

To put it as simply as possible, these chapters that I am posting are prequel chapters leading up to the main comic, so some elements are just meant to be quick bridges/explanations from one point to another. It is basically to bridge one point of backstory to another, or to give a brief summary (like a "Here's what's happened until now") since these prequel chapters largely skip around in time, location, and character focus.
