And Now For Something Completely Different…

Well, maybe not completely different, but certainly not LOST related.

trickshot-logo.jpgAs the inevitable hiatus descends upon us, many thrash about in search of something to pass the time. To this end, may I suggest thetrickshot.com?

The Trickshot is a rather unique website, and as such it is hard to explain. Officially, it is an “Online Graphic Serial”, a graphic novel being released page by page.

The entire tale is split into 10 Chapters and each Chapter is split into 10 Installments. A little math will tell you that this comes to a total of 100 Installments. The story is completely written out, so there will be no ugly surprises or cop-outs in store. Installments are released on Fridays and there is a one month Hiatus between Chapters. With this schedule, the entire thing should last through 2010.

I think it is a solid, unique story, that shares some of the better qualities of LOST. Fans of LOST will find it easy to cross over, but I warn you, it is not for the faint of heart. The plot gets a little technical and slightly twisted down the line.

Anyhoo, drop by, check it out, and I hopefully at the very least it will help pass the time to Season 5.

From TVFrenzy:

    Thanks I’m gonna check it out right now!

  • Quigley

    It seems alright, from what little story there is so far…. Although I don’t know if I’ll carry on reading it – all the spelling mistakes (like ‘tyraid’ and ‘accusitory’) will annoy me. So yeah.

    Not sure, but perhaps the author heard you Quigley. There are no misspellings in the story as of 10:23 CDT on 6/18.

    Ahh, but now the hiatus between installments will also kill me… I’m a somewhat impatient person…
