Welcome to the latest OPORD, just in time to technically have been made in July! There’s a few bits of Aeolian News for you this time around, so let’s just get straight to it.
After our June hiatus, Aeolian Hope is back and posting new content again! Page 16 went up last week, and Brian’s hard at work on Page 17 as we speak. I have the storyboarding done up through page 19, so we’re definitely back into the full swing of things. We’re hoping to have Page 17 up by next Friday, and we’re VERY excited for it. Once it’s posted we’ll be at the official half-way point for Issue 1, a great milestone for us.
We’re In ur Internet
Aeolian Hope has recently teamed up with the Halo Archive (the internet’s greatest Halo fan community), and is posting our story with them as well. We’re up to Page 6 so far in their Community Creations blog section, and you can join the Aeolian discussion on the Archive here.
We’ve also recently joined Twitter, which has been a lot of fun, and have updated our website so you can see our Twitter feed on the left side of the page. Don’t forget to follow us for the most frequent AH updates around!
Finally, voting for the Top Web Comics of July comes to a close today. Voting for August starts tomorrow, so please take a moment to vote for us.
New Characters Page & Preview Art
Normally we post a little snippet of preview art from an upcoming page with the OPORD. There’s one atop this post, but we’ve also hidden a second one. We’re creating new Characters pages as more of them are introduced in the story, and now that we’re just about halfway done there’s enough material to publish the second group of character profiles – the UNSC Personnel. Three of them you’ve met already and the fourth one you’ll meet in Page 17. Head on over if you want to dive deeper into the lore of Aeolian Hope!
That’s about it for July. We’ll see you next month for another OPORD, and next week for Page 17!
