Hi, Jon’s website admin here. Just a friendly reminder that if you register an account here you should also comment on one of Jon’s posts. Account registrations that don’t also make comments will be assumed bogus and deleted. Because of spammers all comments are moderated and now require approval before they’ll appear on the front-end of the website. So if you register, take a moment to say something too – so we know you’re not a spam-bot. 😉
Jon’s Site Admin here again. If you read the previous post you know an “unplanned update” for security reasons kind of messed up the site’s layout. It’s all pretty much back the way it was now. Apologies for any inconvenience, though it didn’t slow down Jon’s posting new content to the site 😉
Jon’s Site Admin here. If you’re visiting on a desktop computer you probably noticed the different look to the Sa-Bom Jim website. All platforms are now seeing the “mobile” user interface thanks to an unplanned WordPress update. Some of the sub-sections are still a bit wonky, bear with us while things get tweaked back into shape.
There was a plan to do a controlled upgrade of the site, but it kept getting delayed. Why? Because Jon keeps drawing and posting comics to the site so furiously (three times a week now)! The idea was to find a good break-point in his story, give Jon a much-needed vacation from his comic, and upgrade the site. Due to an issue with the web hosting company, and with little forewarning, WordPress was updated to the latest version this morning – which broke the site because it was running an outdated theme and plugins that are incompatible with the current version of WordPress.
If you’re wondering where the individual chapter archives have gone, for now click on “Menu –> Store” or click the “Store” button in the bottom bar and read the Ryuzine Press Editions, which beautifully collect all the comics of a chapter in a page-turning digital comic format. The full, reverse-chronological archives are available under the “Archive” button on the right-hand end of the top bar. If you’re on a sub-page for a single comic you can comment by clicking the “Comment” button in the center of the bottom bar and write your comment in the panel that slides in from the left.
Just like the past two years, I participated in 24-Hour Comic Day. The difference this year was twofold:
A) I participated in a group, and not just by myself in my home studio.
B) Not only did I match my page amount, I actually finished an unheard of 5 hours before the deadline! That had never happened before!
So, as part of the October fun and frolics, I actually wrote/drew an SBJ Halloween story! Hope you enjoy it, and remember, this will actually be running Monday-Friday through November 10th!
What IS “24 Hour Comics Day” you ask?
The original 24-Hour Comic was created by Scott McCloud. Visit www.scottmcloud.com for a wonderful history of the 24-Hour Comic and 24-Hour Comic Day.
