Well this is new...
Hello everyone, and welcome to my latest endeavor! I'm thrilled to introduce The Former Name of this Web Comic that Shall Not Be Named. The Former Name of this Web Comic that Shall Not Be Named is a web comic that will explore the many facets of the collecting hobby, in what I hope will be a humorous manner.
If you don't know me already, I'm Bill Cable - Steelers fan and Star Wars collector. I've been collecting Star Wars toys off-and-on since 1978 (mostly off from '85 through '95). I'm the founder and president of the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society, an active member of the Vintage Star Wars collecting community, and the Executive Editor of CreatureCantina.com - where we're celebrating our Ninth Anniversary. I've participated in or witnessed pretty much every phase and permutation of Star Wars collecting, and I'm thinking those experiences will translate well into a comic strip.
While Star Wars will be a primary focus of the strip, it won't be the only focus. I have some great ideas brewing for Hot Wheels, GI Joe, Transformers, McFarlane Sports, Glamour Girls... pretty much every major toy line will show up here down the line. If it involves toy collecting, it's fair game.
The beginning of The Former Name of this Web Comic that Shall Not Be Named necessitates the end of my other artistic pursuits on CreatureCantina.com. So after posting this first comic to kick off our anniversary, I'll be posting my last "Cable Original" and "The Cantina" comic strips to wrap it up. I don't do that lightly... I've loved bringing those things to you these past dozen years. But a few months back I decided that I wanted to make a real effort at a successful web comic. I looked at others that have thrived, and I realized what I was doing would never work. So I revamped everything, and stole pretty much every idea I could from the web comics I admire most.
The Former Name of this Web Comic that Shall Not Be Named will be posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. And CreatureCanitna.com won't be limited to Wednesday updates... our writers are now free to post any time they like! I've set up the The Former Name of this Web Comic that Shall Not Be Named Shop, where you can purchase (right now from a very limited selection of) The Former Name of this Web Comic that Shall Not Be Named merchandise. The site is now officially AWESOME... I've been itching to put all the ColdFusion knowledge I've been building up to good use, and what you see here now is a good four months of programming realized.
I guess that's pretty much everything I was hoping to cover here. So without further ado, here's your inaugural episode of The Former Name of this Web Comic that Shall Not Be Named:
