Misdirection... an unfinished 2010 project by ChasingArtwork Misdirection... an unfinished 2010 project by ChasingArtwork
So I've been watching Penny Arcades "strip Search" show lately, [link] (which is a really good little show) and its rekindled old ambitions of starting my own web comic.

Back in 2010, I got swept up in a personal comic strip project titled "Misdirection". The strip follows Chase and Lisa, Chase a novice magician and Lisa, his neighbour/unwilling assistant. The strip/story starts off with a mailing mixup, landing Chase with a legit dark magic toolbox rather than the "tricks for beginners" kit he ordered, and what was to follow are 48 strips, with a full story arc and finale talent show (that Chase sets of fire.) lots and lots of influence from Calvin+Hobbes

then life kinda got crazy, and the artwork, along finished scripts have collected a bit of dust... but in my experience, I've found that good project ideas stick in your head until you complete them, and I very much believe this is the case with Chase and Lisa's "Misdirection" comic strip.

Someday soon I'll get back together with these guys and we'll tell our story.
Just thought I would share :)

To say the least, I think you should go for it.

Comics are a great way to earn publicity, I think that you should incorporate your more advanced art in these future strips as well.
I would love to see this! Especially if it was influenced by Calvin and Hobbes
Looking forward to seeing this become a thing :D

Cool! I really hope you get the time to finish this. Oh, and the 2010 Lisa looks 10x cuter than the 2013 version. :)

I agree with some of the others, the 2010 version of Lisa is better, not that you wanted my opinion or anything..
