For about 6 months or so now, I’ve been troubled over the name of my webcomic. I recognized that the comic - in theme and in spirit - would change and evolve, and that ultimately, the current name of “The Super-Gay Adventures of Ross Boston” was going to end up being the joke that no longer made sense. It’s title may one day hinder it, preventing it from being taken seriously. Furthermore, it works against the idea of using a largely LGBT-friendly cast without “making a huge deal of it” and then…well, making a huge deal of it in the title. It just doesn’t make sense.
That is why, effective at the start of Episode 2 of the comic, the name will be changed simply to “Ross Boston” and will be at rossbostoncomic.com. The current supergayadventures.com will redirect to the new URL, so you shouldn’t have to change your bookmarks or anything, but you can if you like. If you do, wait for the new URL to be live. Currently, it is still the old one. (Side note: the facebook page will keep the name due to facebook’s rules, but the url is facebook.com/rossboston so this really isn’t a big deal to me.)
The new silver and gold logo is the default, but I have also created a black-and-white version for use on many other materials for when the default doesn’t make sense. See below:
I went through literally dozens of ideas before I finally settled on the obvious. At its core, “Ross Boston” is a super hero comic, and most of those take on the name of their hero. Batman. Spider-Man. Wonder Woman. Thor. Etc. It seemed fitting to continue to put the hero’s catchy name in the title, while shedding all of the unimportant and obvious information.
The first episode of “Ross Boston” ends this week, and it is highly likely I’ll be taking next week off of posting to further prepare Episode 2 to begin the following week, including a small handful of website changes - though nothing major beyond the new URL..
As a final and VERY IMPORTANT note, My indiegogo campaign (similar to Kickstarter) for the second episode of “Ross Boston” is almost over with only 3 days left, and I’m still VERY BELOW my proposed goal of $5,000. If you could please take a look and at least share the link with others on twitter, facebook, etc, that would be most appreciated. THANK YOU!!!
