So wow... that's The End! It's been quite a ride. I believe some of you have been with us from at or near the beginning. I don't know if we'll ever do any other comics in the Harry Potter world (I won't rule it out, though), but we feel quite good about this story. I hope you all enjoyed it, too!
I have previously mentioned our next project. Well... I hope you're all down for something (mostly) completely different!
If you can't guess from the pictures, it's going to be a Star Trek comic. The ship is a bit more finished than in the pictures (actually, it's about 95% complete) and some of the characters are still subject to alteration, but! We do have a script and plan to begin new episodes starting in February. We will also put up some previews in the meantime as time and
The ship has three decks and it's built similar to Hogwarts in that we can disassemble sections/open walls for camera shots. Actually, we've had some Harry Potter scenes that were taken inside the ship, but I'll leave you all to guess which ones.
We intend for it to follow a once-a-week schedule, though the episode size will probably be less uniform than Potter (that is, probably a little longer on average). More details will follow in the weeks to come!
As one last thing... Kreo made some Star Trek sets with Lego-compatible figures and Star Trek aliens. We've found a few, but a lot are hard to come by. If anyone knows of any (that are affordable) we are interested. I'm especially trying to find their Quark figure so we can have some Ferengi. But I'm also considering 3D printer options. Not sure if anyone
ever prints Lego parts? Just hair-size pieces. Anyway... hope to hear from you all in the future! (Ha... I finished on a bad pun. Please don't kill me.)
Nearly did I forget... there will likely be another Lego webcomic at some point in the future from my wife and I that will be Lord of the Rings themed. (Also a sequel, actually.) However, I must finish Planescape first. My poor drawn webcomic needs my attention!

Swiftbow: Not registering a domain for this one, but we are doing a static subdomain! http://startrek.swiftbow.com/ It is now functional, too. (The first installment is coming thisweekend! For now, enjoy our homemade Star Trek movie from 1993 that birthed this story idea!)

BrickVoid: I was wondering ... Are you going to register a new URL domain for the new comic or just host it on this site? If there's a new URL to bookmark I'd certainly want to know about it. :D\

Swiftbow: Just an update... we've taken a LOT of photos and I will be starting episode assembly soon. I would expect to see episodes going online around, oh... let's say maybe Valentine's Day? (Maybe sooner. It's a rough estimate!)

BrickVoid: I think this may be the biggest author comments section thus far, but mostly because of the images you uploaded to illustrate the new comic.

DaniGeek: It's gonna be so weird not seeing you work on this comic, I remember when we first met I randomly asked: "How much longer do you think you have on this story?" and you said "About a year and a half." That was five years ago. LOL Any way congrats on this you and Brogen told a really fun story that will hopefully still be talked
about for many years.

Swiftbow: Thanks everybody :D CC: I will post links once we have them set up, but it will be linked to my primary site: swiftbow.com (probably as a subdomain)

BrickVoid: It's probably because the primary character of this comic, Harry, lives in the UK.becaues the original film is set with Hogwarts being in Britain. Apologies, but all these years, i did not know where you actually were living. :D

haakon: 1,044 episodes in all. This has been a real accomplishment - a mostly upbeat continuation of the Harry Potter saga (so much more appealing than what Rowling herself came up with). Also unique from a technical standpoint. You basically maxed out the Lego format for your photos, then boosted the effect by photoshopping in facial
expressions and backdrops.

Classic Steve: I'll miss this.

Cc: Once the star trek comic is out, where can we find it?

Swiftbow: Should be posting shortly. I'm flattered you find our British dialog authentic enough to think we live in the UK, but we actually live in Colorado (US).
