Now’s as good a time as any to pull back the curtain a little on the “Ross Boston” reboot. As you can see, it has a new title, “Lotus For Help.” Allow me to take a moment to tell you more about my upcoming webcomic! The pilot episode:
Wizard Wayne Woflo and ex-spy Nicki Noelle run Lotus For Help, a special vigilante group that focuses on the needs of the supernatural and otherworldly - commonplace elements in the group’s city of residence. When their original receptionist is killed in a horrible accident, they hire a new one in the form of unassuming twenty-something Ross Boston. Unbeknownst to them, Ross is a low-level demon summoner who - from their perspective - appears to be possessed by his demonic boyfriend. However, when the two hastily attempt to draw the demon out of Ross, they drag out much more than they had bargained for…
"Lotus For Help" is a dark comedy webcomic. Each episode will be mostly self-contained stories with dynamic elements instead of having and overarching story - similar to favorites such as "Gravity Falls" and "Adventure Time."
For fans of the previous iteration of the comic, “Ross Boston,” some changes include: less focus on the former titular character, though he is still part of the leading cast; A darker tone. Less silly and irreverent, but still comedic. More “funny smell” than “funny haha”; A smaller main cast, though others will be returning in some form, at some point; A slightly less all-ages approach.
I’ll leave you with that for now. I have no tentative release date as I’m still working on the script - on the first rewrite now. More details will trickle out as they become relevant. I hope you like what I’ve shown so far!
