I've been asked how many chapters V is for Voonder will be. Short answer is 8 are planned....10 is possible.

Before I started the comic, I plotted out two paths: a 3-chapter version with a simpler, shorter story or an 8-chapter version. The 3-chapter version would not have included ::ankh:: Datton (nor JayKey, Sascha, Brandon, and Taylor). Chapter 1 would have been exactly the same in either version and it wasn't until I was working on chapter 2 that I decided to go with the longer, more complex comic. Maybe this will end up longer than No Rest for the Righteous???

Currently, I'm at a crossroad where I could even go with 10 chapters. I'm debating that. This comic's been popular and I've had lots of fun making it, so a 10-chapter version is possible. Those extra two chapters will be used for further explore certain characters and ideas.


8-Chapter Version
Chapter I: The Goblin's Scheme
Chapter II: The Kitten's Roar
Chapter III: The Paperboy's Story
Chapter IV: The Hunter's Catch
Chapter V: The Paladin's Gambit
Chapter VI: The Coyote's Demand
Chapter VII: The C....... P......
Chapter VIII: The P....... P.......
Epilogue


10-Chapter Version
Chapter I: The Goblin's Scheme
Chapter II: The Kitten's Roar
Chapter III: The Paperboy's Story
Chapter IV: The Hunter's Catch
Chapter V: The Paladin's Gambit
Chapter VI: The Coyote's Demand
Chapter VII: The S.......D......
Chapter VIII: The A....... B......
Chapter IX: The C........P........ (chapter 7 of other version)
Chapter X: The P....... P....... (chapter 8 of other version)
Epilogue


Feel free to express any opinion you may have on this, here or by PM / email. Feedback is always valued. I'll be debating this in my mind as I work on Chapter 6.

well im always happy for of voonders deadly mischief but i wouldn't worry to much about the length. each issue has had its own self contained story as well as the arc while rest for the righteous was much more a singular narrative

I love this comic and as long as the hungry characters get plenty to eat, a longer storyline is just as fun as a shorter one

So I've made up my mind to go for the longer version, however, now I have a new question I've been thinking over the last few months, and I'll need to make up my mind before moving forward with V is for Voonder.

We now have Datton split from Voonder, on his quest to find and rescue you-know-who. The story will be the same either way, the question is how to tell it...

1 - Keep Datton's and you-know-who's story line as "V is for Voonder" chapters. This would mean that for some chapters of V is for Voonder, we wouldn't actually see Voonder.

2 - Create a new comic, with a different title, to tell Datton's story, then connect it back to V is for Voonder. This would keep a "V is for Voonder" chapters focusing on Voonder, Naxos, and characters coming into direct contact with them. This new comic would focus on Datton and likely be two chapters.

The first option was my plan up until a few months ago when I started to consider the 2nd option. If anyone has an opinion please reply here or email me. Thoughts are appreciated. I'll be making up my mind soon, so I can start working on Voonder chapter 7.

I definitely vote for giving Datton a separate story. I love the hunting, slave trade and slave-eating focus of the Voonder story, which is different from the combat/survival story line for Datton.
