I don't want to spam NG with individual pages...I'll upload something significant when I have more...

Hey Newgrounds...it's been ages!

Since the original Merry Melony debut'ed here, I thought I'd post a sneak peak...sorry, it's just the first page. There are many more to come!

This is a reboot, with a new story and format. Eventually I hope to complete five books and, with enough financial backing via kickstarter, have fully funded sound design and VO. To read more about the project you can watch http://merrymelony.tumblr.com or follow my facebook art page:

Cheers!

A bit disappointing after nearly 9 years waiting, but it's good to hear Merry Melony isn't dead... or at least, gone from existence. And this still looks amazing, I hope to see and perhaps read more about Melony in the future!

What an awesome form of a comic, animated, abstract; drastically detailed! I was expecting more than a single page though, but it is good. Looking forward to more! And btw, how about a larger resolution? Feels like this could be scaled up a bit without detail lost. Nice work!

Thanks! Is there a way to do bigger resolution on NG? I looked for it and couldn't find it. It's made to be viewed much bigger.

This is awesome, can't wait for the full thing.
Hopefully the full version is shown in a larger window, though... I found the text to be a bit difficult to read, and I'm only running in 1920x1080...

Your triptych motion comics looks very promising...invokes such emotion, even without music. The color palette is great...and actually, you used really good fluid animation in the first panel. Composition is dope... one minor critique is the speed. Generally (I think) 3-4 seconds is what you need for an audience to read words, so maybe one panel every 5 seconds? Just a thought. Won't matter if you are doing voiceovers. I'm favoriting you and hope more people see this underrated teaser. Can't wait for the release!

God damn, a real blast from the past right here! So many of us have been waiting since 2005 for you to return Meony to the grounds! I didnt believe it was true when this showed up on my NG home page. My disappointment that this is only a teaser in comic book format is palpable, but over ridden by my absolute exuberance that this came back from the dead, even if the story is going to be different. Cant say as I like that idea, but it's not my place to make that call, its yours as the artist/creator.

Lets see if this takes off, or falls flatter than my hopes in 05 when MM first died of neglect. I have to ask though, why a new story? The first was never finished and so many of us loved what was there in the original animation! Why not work with that instead of a total reboot? Format/style I can understand, but I cant fathom why the new direction in the story....

Waiting with bated breath, just wont hold my breath

I'm starting over because I learned a whole world of information about storytelling, art and animation since I first started. You'll find that many of the things that happened in the original will happen in the comic, but in different places. I'm a different person now and want to tell a deeper story while still being true to what people liked. A dozen pages in, tell me if you're still disappointed, and if so, thats on me :)
