Official AIO Comic Strip!

Post

That's right, the AIO Team has started releasing an official Adventures in Odyssey comic strip!
AIO Facebook Page wrote:Elsewhere in Odyssey is a Club-exclusive comic strip featuring all-new stories about your favorite characters. What are they up to that we don't hear about in the audio dramas? A free strip is released the first Monday of every month, while Club Members get to enjoy exclusive new strips every single week!
On the latest episode of the Official Adventures in Odyssey Podcast, the creators, Evan David and Brian Dawson, are interviewed and they talk about this comic and what it will be about. Be sure to give it a listen.

One of the things this comic series will be doing is regularly featuring characters who haven't been appearing in the show. It has been confirmed that Edwin Blackgaard is one of the characters who will be featured in the comics.

Here's the first comic strip which was released on the AIO Facebook Page today.

What are everyone's thoughts on this? I'm very interested to see how this will go. \:D/ :yes:

I have been quite happy with what we have seen from the comic strip so far.

I really like the art for Jason and Wooton! I especially like that they are not wearing the clothes they are usually seen wearing in album art. I look forward to seeing the depiction of other characters!

I am very interested in seeing what other characters they bring back. Bart Rathbone? Jack and Joanne Allen? Rodney Rathbone? I think this is a great way to continue the stories of characters who are unable to appear in the audio series anymore.
However, I believe there could be a problem with this comic strip, depending on how far they take the "bringing back characters." I think it is fine for them to bring back characters who cannot return to the show (such as Jack Allen, etc.). But I do not think it is okay for the team to use the comic strip to bring back characters who could return to the audio series, and then never bring them back in the audio series with the explanation: "they appeared in the comic strip." :noway: This has not happened yet, but I am afraid it will. We'll see how it goes.

One potential problem aside, I look forward to seeing more of the new AIO Comic strip! :yes:
"Next up, Mark Morgan's message to all math maniacs in the middle school is meaningful if you mingle by the mezzanine for a momentous mix of methodological mayhem and a menagerie of multiplicative inversions. Ha ha ha! I bet I could say this backwards. Inversions multiplicative of menagerie a and mayhem methodological..."

This is a really interesting and exciting idea. Especially since we've seen most of these characters in audio form, not visual, so this is kind of a new-ish form of storytelling for odyssey. (Or at least one that hasn't been explored so extensively)

Here’s a link to a podcast that talks a little about the webcomic and it also mentions some of the characters the comics will feature; https://www.audiotheatrecentral.com/20 ... rview.html.
