The funny thing is I didn't know of this site's existance or of 'Deep rising' till I started doing some indepth searching to see if anyone has done an xcom comic and see if there's anything to learn from it.

And boy deep rising was a 'Wow' with a capital!

Still I've been set to undertake my own project and story, and doing about two pages a month, the full res of each page can be found on my gallery overview.

Your welcome I'll try to update here as well but I might as well ask, I was on an xcom site long ago (can't remember name but had a mini guide to other games before clicking on forum under the name koriand'r/korgeta) Is that site still going? It has been a long while but do recall seeing your name on the site.

Dunno, I don't remember the site directly and my links page doesn't have it listed either. If there were forums on that site I probably wasn't registered there. IIRC I only belong to StrategyCore (previously x-com.co.uk/forums), XComUFO.com and UFOPaedia.org (X-COM wiki). I was at Daishiva's website (creator of MapView) and maybe posted a couple times in his forums there but other than that I didn't really sign up anywhere else. It's possible my name was tossed around though, especially after 2005 or so. ;)

No spoilers, please! :D Kidding, it is nice to see iterations that lead to the end art.

XComUFO.com, that's the one! It was a bit difficult to find under google searching.

Thanks Hobbes, I still read the unknown menace fanfic from time to time (incidentally I did send out a PM from ff.net asking if you wanted to be a proof reader for this)

As for the captain, he has a new member to his team.

And here's the 7th page, with a new Advent class I made just for the sole purpose of the comic part story and just me being partly creative.
Posted Image

Majority of the plot including this was set up back in September and while there are some things I can tweak to fit as close as possible to the source there will be some things can't change back.

Also as a heads up, at some point there will be an artist who do some work for me (mini segments) while I focus on the story, with the first chapter a page away from finishing..

Just showing a sketch of the next chapter, other then the title it'll open up with an 'Adventgers' segment, featuring more slander against the xcom we all know and command.

It's a longer piece before I move to cover two perspectives from those inside Advent whose lives will be decided by the upcoming 'interview' (see page 4)

I'll also mention that the xcom mooks in the following pages are based on a friend's playthrough so for the most the coming designs will be quite accurate. So as much as I reference old games there be references to the customization and other features made by fans that have played a bigger part in xcom more then ever (Long war mod for example and openxcom going even further back)

Here's the sketch.

Link no longer works, for sketch material here is new link below:

Start of the second chapter, first thing to mention the first 3 pages are referenced to youtube faleg and his xcom LP series, lara is one of his designs I copied (so lara is actually an example of xcom 2 customization) of course their part of the adventgers segment the kid is watching.

The other bit to mention is past the third page I'll be making an exclusive of slideshow based on the "episode" the kid is watching for one of faleg's videos hopefully.

This chapter will also be considerably longer as there is more to fit in with this.

There's going to be a break till Nov-Dec whilst I complete set of xcom pictures based on the show Amir was watching and be used as a slideshow for a friend's xcom LP series, it's something new and see how it goes, after that I'm back onto this.

Just to update i finally completed the mini comic and will be carrying on the second chapter shortly in the new year but this would had been what Amir would had seen if it weren't paused. Even though it's a mini comic it's more aimed for my friend faleg and his youtube channel of said name as i'm telling a propganda short whilst useing his customized xcom 2 characters (save the overwatch character i just wanted to throw a reference)

The last page isn't part of the comic and is tailor made at faleg's current LP where my character is reborn as a traitor. (yes dan texan is me +20 years and exaggeration of beard!)

Edit 2019:

Labelled under subcomic 'Adventgers 2' the Advent cartoon inshow. Despite being the first mini comic it's not the first within it's own continuity.
