Revisting HOB has been like remembering your favorite Halloween, even if it’s just the memory of the best parts of each your life’s Halloweens. The one with the kickingest parties, the one with the best/most candy, and the ones with experiences that made you really consider the nature of fear, mortality, and the failing of years. These are things we very much wish to revisit, but their very natures, their express point, is that they have passed away.
Today Bar expressed a desire to continue with HOB: “There is so much more to tell.” Back in ’96, we had a number of different directions we wished to take the story; the strange friendship between Sandy and Hob, how the angels operate and what they are for, and of course, the impending Gulf War and its impact on them all.
And yet, no additional pages have been written beyond what’s posted. There remain those sketches of Mr. Hob we’ve promised. When we get them scanned and up, we’ll ping the blog. And any forums, if we ever get them live.
But for fans of our serious comic work, take heart. We have a series that is very old, and very new, brewing. In keeping with this month’s Star Wars mania, let us just say this:
“There is another.”
