A New Era


Big changes are coming to derekkirkkim.com. Starting today, I will be posting new content every single day.

A new chapter of TUNE, in novel form. That's right, TUNE will finally resume serialization. I'll be posting an entire new chapter every Mon, Wed, and Fri until it's conclusion. 26 chapters in all. Don't worry, the serialization won't stall this time. I made sure to finish writing the entire novel before I started posting to ensure there will be no breaks. But since it’s being relaunched in a new form, I’ll be starting from the beginning once again. If you followed the comic book version, and you don’t want to reread the first half of the story, you can hop on board the novel version at Chapter 13. But if you have the time, I would recommend reading the novel version from the beginning. It’s the same story as the comic book, but plot points have been shuffled around, and there are some additional scenes in the novel. There are some slight changes as well, like the way Mo looks, but they are mostly cosmetic, and it won’t really effect your understanding of the story if you decide to pick up from where the comic halted and start with Chapter 13 of the novel. I’m so excited to finally bring you the second half of this story. It’s a story I’ve literally been working on since around 2000. It took me 16 years in total to finally bring it to you. I hope you’ll like it!

On the other days of the week, I'll be posting a potpourri of content. It could be art, an interview, an article, a video, a short film, photos, or just random thoughts I would love to get your opinion on. I promise it will all be fun and informative. Speaking of informative, I would love to have a q+a day. So if you have any questions about any of my work, or what it's like to work in comics, animation, or film, or anything else I can help out with, feel free to drop me a question in the comments section or my contact page. If I pick your question, I'll use one of these days to give an indepth answer.

Well, that about wraps it up for what's coming up. I hope you'll join me daily. If you enjoy any of the upcoming posts, I hope you'll like, share and post your comments. I would love to hear what you think! Away we go!
