  5. Hey, thanks to everyone for the kind words. Titan is returning to a weekly schedule for the next few months, until the end of Part 2… the updates will be two tiers, rather than three, but that works out to 1.33333333333333333333333 times and many comics per month!

    Hi Francois. I met you at the Short Run small press fest. I wish I had more time to ask questions about your comic but my daughter was due for a nap.

    This comic interests me most because– before I became a stay-at-home-dad–I was a union worker, a shop-steward; and for a time I was also the treasurer for the Seattle branch of the IWW (Industrial Workers of World). I am a dedicated pro-revolutionary and a Marxist and (left)communist.

    That said, I am very interested in the direction of this comic. I hopeyour going to surprise us with the development of the characters in this work.

    If I could ask one question, however, it would be: Do you *first* develop your plot or do you develop your characters?

    nice reference to Homestead, Pennsylvania. ;)

    • Hi Spencer,

      I just saw your thoughtful comment, thanks so much for your feedback! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

      With Titan I began with the central visual conceit of giants, and then developed the plot and characters organically from there. Once I came up with a “scientific” reason that there were giants (because of the low gravity), my story coalesced around that… the idea of an oppressed worker class on the outskirts of the solar system, the bifurcation of the Terrans and Titans, and the roles of my protagonists, João and Phoebe. I have *most* of the plot worked out at this point, tho’ there are major gaps that are challenges for me.

      I hope that Titan continues to be interesting for you, I love that you are bringing so much knowledge and experience of union and worker history 9you are the FIRST person to mention the Homestead thing to me… and I thought I was being too obvious with that reference!). I myself don’t have a firm understanding of union history, so I worry that you will find some glaring issues… And I have a complicated relationship with revolutionary thought and action as well! I hope that Titan will be interesting in its ambiguity on some of these matters. Please don’t hesitate to let me know what you think! I truly appreciate it.

      Keep up the good work, and all my best to you and yours! Look forward to meeting you again at Short Run or another festival. The next chapter in Titan should resume serialization here in just a few weeks.
