The other day I was reading through some of my old webcomics, trying to decide if it was worth keeping them on display in the site’s gallery or not. I did decide to keep them, even if they are a bit on the shit side, but the point of the post is that it also got me thinking about reboots. For Spiritual Soul in particular. I’ve already got some major plans for a complete remake of Leidau as a series of novels(I’ll make a post about it one of these days). But Spiritual Soul has kind of been left to gather dust, which is largely because the story needs loads of work, and by loads of work I mean a complete reimagining.
My first thought was to do something written, ’cause that’s mostly what I’m into these days. But then I started thinking about the possibility of trying it as a comic again. Now, a good while back in 2008 or so, I decided to quit comics because they don’t really work for me. I mean, I love ’em, but I’m such a slow, picky artist, and I’m absolutely abysmal at keeping up with updates(If my extremely sporadic blog updates weren’t telling enough). But reading through got me thinking about trying again. It’s probably just a bit of nostalgia, but still something to think about.
Now, I don’t know if I’ll actually do it. Hell, I don’t even know if I’ll ever do anything new with Spiritual Soul at all, I have a lot of stories lined up already that I’m far more passionate about. But there is a slight temptation there. Perhaps as a side project like what I do with Fuzz & Whimsy. I might have to try fishing around for some ideas sometime and see what I find.
For funsies though, here’s a written remake of the comic’s opening that I did a few years ago:
