Yes, I’ll be talking about future of Jacara Zar. And yes, it is good news. And no, I won’t be releasing another issue this year. Hehe!

Jackboxer from Swamp Thing #46.

As some of you guys know, Jacara Zar is an old creation way back when I was in high school. Stolen from the little panel of Swamp Thing written by Alan Moore, drawn by Stephen Bisset and John Totleben, this character and artwork inspired me to create my own story. Trying to redevelop my little twist, I came up with “Mandirigma Ng Latian” (Swamp Warrior). I gave him a name that resembles Jackboxer, I came up with Jacara Zar.

Jacara Zar has been in the attic for years. I’ve been trying to develop this character for years. Putting him in the future world, or present time, but I wasn’t satisfied. Looking back to the old idea and story, I thought of giving Jacara Zar his own world, rather than to the world we know.

Most of the people who read the first two issues of my komiks always asking me how many issues I’ll be publishing. I keep telling them probably four to six issues. If I want less, then I have to release one double-size issue. But that will be a pain for my pocket. So, right now, I’m telling everybody that I am not very sure if this will be six issues.

I haven’t finished writing the fourth issue, I’m still re-writing half of the script after halting for a while. I’ll try to compress the story as much as I can, keeping the important ones to stitch the first two issues. I already have the plot for the last three of the series, so I guess I have no problem with that. It’s the details that will be my biggest problem, avoiding loopholes and questions unanswered.

But dreaming of finishing this series, the story of Jacara Zar will not stop. Jacara Zar has his world with humans and other race of beings. Jacara’s world hasn’t shown the entire races and cultures yet. There are Zarreebbans, Mircans, and Zeestalians that are about to appear on the third issue. There will be revelations about the rulers of the Zarreebban kingdoms. :) The world hasn’t shown everything. Questions still needed to be answered.

After issue six, I might continue Jacara Zar’s story just within the swampland. I really wish I could bring back Zeerfann. I really like that character. Who knows…he might come back. ;)

Home-made lightbox.
Home-made lightbox.

I just made this using an A3 picture frame. Although this one has a very thin flexible glass. So if you’re planning to make your own, better check if the glass of the picture frame is real glass or thicker.

Here are the things I used:
1) A3 picture frame from NBS; with thin, narrow, frame, flexi-glass, plywood back cover.
2) Two mini, fluorescent, 8W lightbulbs.
3) Any switch like this.
4) Wire from old, broken electric fan.
5) Tracing paper and some bunch of Scotch tape. ^__^
6) Screws, bolts and little wood for boxing the plywood.
