Wayward Fall Interview – Part 1

Taversia, author and artist for the Vampire webcomic Wayward Fall, takes the hot seat.

Q1. What’s your webcomic ‘Wayward Fall’ about?

A1. Over the course of the past couple of years that Wayward Fall has been online, its storyline has continued to unravel and evolve. I first began the comic with my co-writer, AntiType, in Autumn/Winter of 2008 (it was a transitional period; the first pages were created on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. But the comic itself did not go live until December 17th). It centres around a vampire, Vigana, who grew up in the Dark Ages, now reawakened in the modern era, in an urban underground society. She fell in with the mob, operating the fictitious city of Wayward Falls, and soon came in to working for them as a hit-woman. It outlines her inner struggles, coming to terms with the trials and tribulations of her rather unfortunate life. Although there are many comedic elements within the comic, at its core, Wayward Fall is an ongoing romantic tragedy with a strong fantasy/sci-fi theme. There are also subtle religious undertones abound. As the story continues to develop, it will gradually become much darker. Furthermore, not any one character is safe from at some point, facing destruction at the discretion of the writers (currently, just me).

Hello and Thanks

Hi there and welcome to “Epic Fail.”  (As you can see I have high hopes for this  web comic!)  Thank you for coming, I really hope you bookmark this page and come back often, for what an adventure there is to come!

I have many thanks to give this day.  Firstly is The Webcomic Beacon and its hosts Fes and Tanya.  These are lovely people who do a webcomic podcast on a weekly basis, providing lots of useful information and inspiration to webcomicers.  Without them I would not have had the courage to start this project.  Every episode was encouragement for me.

I also owe gratitude to Zander Cannon mainly for this page with its fantastically-useful comic template.  It made drawing frames 100% easier and I use it for every page.

I’d also like to thank the friends whom I role-play with.  Their creativity is the basis for much of the plot and characters.  They also help me by reviewing new pages and giving me feedback.  Their support so far is amazing!

On the technical side I’m grateful to ComicPress for its comic publishing theme (their hard work has made publishing a comic online easy for me) and by extension WordPress for its priceless publishing platform.

Last, but not-at-all least, is Xepher.net who has wonderfully provided the hosting for this website and all its content for free, with practically zero limitations.  They do this for many other creative individuals too, therefore I encourage you to support them to the fullest.  They are very friendly and their service has been impeccable thus far.  Cheers!
