Q. What happened to your other comics? Why aren't you continuing Anaria?
A. This comic is a reboot of Anaria. All of the characters will be here, but their paths different. It also takes place further in the past, before Lilian joins the Mansel Knights. Since this is a slice of life I plan on making little "elsewhere in Anaria" stories. To read more about the choice to reboot you can read this blog post
Q. Why isn't Winter's Light on the internet?
A. Because it's still semi-canon, takes place farther in the future than the start of this comic and the novel, and I don't want to spoil a major plot point for a main character for those that didn't read it.
Q. What makes me think I can trust you to not reboot this, too?
A. Comics are too much work and I would have gladly just stopped when I did, but I need to get this story out of my system. I've created more than I have in ten years and I'm happy. Create what you love, not what you think other people want.
Q. Wasn't Laz and Jasmine from that Gold Digger/Ninja High School crossover?
A. Yup. In 2009 when I went by J.L. Anderson I designed them for a comic I co-created with my friend Robby Bevard. Laz, Jasmine, and Mira are my characters and I have full rights to them. I only drew the art and under a very tight deadline; none of the writing is mine so pretty much all of the behaviors of my characters are not correct except in the last issue where I had a little bit of say. It's not canon in ANY way to my story. The only thing that's the same are my designs, names for my characters, and that Laz is a psionic musician.
Q. Are you JL, Jayelle, or Leah?
A. I'm Leah now and Leah I will stay. I don't go by J.L. or Jayelle Anderson anymore. Go here to read more about the name change.
Q. Will there be illustrations in the novel?
A. Nope. Not my style for novels.
Q. Do you take commissions?
Q. Can you read my story/comic and give me feedback?
A. Sorry, no. I can't do pro bono editorial work.
Q. Will you be at *insert name here* con?
A. I'm not much of a con goer anymore, but there is a possibility that I'll show up at a PNW comic con.
Q. I have ideas I want you to put in your comic/pay you to put in your comic.
Q. What kind of equipment do you work with to make your comic?
A. Photoshop CC with a Wacom 27QHD and 13HD. I also create pages using Artflow on my Samsung Galaxy Note9.
Q. Can I draw fan art/make other fan creations.
A. I love fan works! Just be respectful and keep it clean.
As a side note, please don't sell or profit off of anything involving my characters. I've had issues with this and I don't appreciate it. I'm just a small time indy artist, not Marvel or DC.
