Yep, this is officially the final Team Fortress 2 Originals comic to be set within the canon. I'm doing this because I want to have a core focus on Servers, but with TF2O on my mind, the series should deserve a proper ending. I'm well aware that people prefer TF2O to Servers, but I always considered TF2O to be a side project of mine. I always do love the series due to its simplicity and the cast of characters, but like Breaking Bad and Seinfeld, all good things must come to an end.
Since most people dislike the idea of me promoting my stuff, this will be the last time you will see any other promos (with a slight exception with behind the scenes material) until Egyptian Caper releases. For now, here's some info on the comic:
The Egyptian Caper will be based more upon Scooby Doo episodes. I was a huge fan of Calvin & Hobbes, and I am also a huge fan of Scooby Doo. I have several episodes and films on VHS and DVD. Not blu-ray yet.
Like the later Scooby Doo shows, specific characters will travel to Egypt in order to solve a mystery surrounding their team. It is based more upon other episodes that doesn't adhere to trope, so it doesn't have the classic "Old Man Jenkins" twist.
Also, like Pyro & Bear and Calvin & Hobbes, it won't explicitly follow the based material. The tone will be different.
Original characters such as Steve the Bear, Driver, Maggot, and Scout's Sister will all be returning. Since this comic serves as a conclusion to the series, it is only fitting that these guys return for one last adventure and to tie up their story.
As evidenced by the promotional poster I just released, this is the final appearance of Steve the Bear. I won't say much more about this.
Several concerns and questions will be answered in this comic. One of the main critiques I got was: That bear model always looks out of place with the TF2 art style. This will be answered within the comic.
I keep getting asked how I make these comics. I usually provide short answers such as, "With Photoshop and Garry's Mod" since I don't know how to fully answer their question.
There will be a behind the scenes series of videos where I discuss about the comic series and how everything came together. Also, there will be a tutorial video where I construct a single page to the comic. It'll be lengthy.
20+ planned pages. This is going to be another major comic, so it will be fitting to let it be this huge. I'll be surprised if I have done more than 30 pages.
The ending will be controversial. Some might like it. Some won't. I'll understand why, but I'll be sticking to it. You can choose to ignore it in your headcanon, if you so desire.
