    D8 I’m being plunged into something, here. Need further information. So the webcomic I’m currently looking at is rough drawings from the printed books? The printed books are final ink drawings?

    I’m really only just coming across Finder. ^^; I saw a random volume of it in a library, but didn’t want to read out of order. Now I see this online version. I’m trying to understand how it’s all fitting together with the book I started reading in the library. (The book I saw was Mystery Date.)

    Yes, the webcomic is composed of rough pencils. Ordinarily, the printed book would hew to these very closely, with only minor changes to improve flow. But this time I went ahead with a script that turned around and bit me, and so it’s been completely rewritten. Think of this version of TORCH as the beta.

    MYSTERY DATE is set in the same world, and there will be a few characters in common– Shar appears in TORCH as it stands. It was published sixth in sequence, but back then I was young and innocent and didn’t think I had to have series numbers on the books if they were relatively self-contained stories.

    TORCH begins a big story that, if all goes well, will fill up three books. There is a sort of prequel, VOICE, which sets up a lot of things, but isn’t really the Big Beginning. VOICE is ninth in the series. The previous eight have all been collected into two whomping big books, the FINDER LIBRARIES, which are available on my site, on Amazon, and at bookshops and comic shops, from Dark Horse.

    Then there’s the story serializing in DARK HORSE PRESENTS, which buckets along and is sort of a side story to VOICE, my, ain’t I the busy little bee.

    Dear Carla:
    I am a big fan of your work and this may seem strange, but I was on ebay the other day and I saw a rubber stamp that I think was made from one of your drawings. The stamp has already been sold, but if you look up the ebay item number you can see the stamp and get the seller info. It is 261276096992. I may be wrong, but the drawing really does look like your work.

    Nah. It’s not mine. Thanks for letting me know, though!
