Post My Upcoming Webcomic: GrimmSouls
I've been working on this comic for a while now (Namely the background info and the world it's set in) and I want to see what you guys think of my idea.

The comic is called GrimmSouls and it tells the tale of Merick Wilson (spelled just like that), a detective from the 1930's who lead a standard but good life and was one of the top detectives on the force in his home town. But all that changed when, on a assignment to investigate a cult, his soul is ripped (or, in this world, reaped) from his body by an unknown assailant. He finds himself in heaven and learns that he can still return to the land of the living, but he can't appear as himself, rather as a member of the Reapers, a group dedicated to helping or reaping souls from Earth to one of two destinations: Paradise or The Underworld. Now with his Soul Reaper shotgun and the power to see mortal souls, he is now tasked to help the souls of Earth to their final destination, while at the same time protecting them from forces who will stop at nothing to either take control of a mortal for their own selfish desires or destroy the Grim Reapers. The first story-arc in the saga is entitled Reaper's Shadow and it will set up the world and characters while having Merick understanding his role as a Reaper more and more. The third story-arc (Don't ask I just thought of it while I was working on the comic) is entitled Ragnarock and it's basically Merick VS Garmar in a battle for Earth. As of this post, I got the main characters written down and their weapons, along with the symbols, or ReapEyes, symbols only Reapers can see, and the type of world they live in.

If I can be honest, the whole comic came from two inspirations: First was a older comic I had planned called Darkness Before Salvation and it was going to be about a vampire hunter, who is also a vampire like Blade, going around the world hunting both Vampire and werewolves before coming face to face with the head vampire himself. The other inspiration is actually the current story-arc for Housepets...or rather the characters of Pete, Cerberus and The Great Kitsune and my odd idea of how it'd be interesting if Cerberus had a helper of sorts.

So yeah, I'd be interested in hearing what you guys think of it and I'm open to ideas for the comic!

*UPDATE*
So, I decided to be nice to everyone here and do this: I'm going to reveal the types of souls in the world of GrimmSouls
DreadSouls - Pure Evil souls - (Soul Color: Dark or Bright Red)
PureSouls - All Children (Ages 0-15) of the world - (Soul Color: White)
NeutarSouls - Not good but not bad. Basically in the middle - (Soul Color: Light Blue)
ReapSouls - Grim Reaper/Soul Collector, depending on who you ask - (Soul Color: Dark Grey) <- CAN NOT BE REAPED/COLLECTED
SoulLess - Dead, zombiefied/reanimated corpse {Can TECHNICALLY still be reaped}, skeleton
Soulclipse - A soul who wanders the land with no place to go, meaning it's already reaped and just needs directions - (Soul Color: Transperent, like a ghost)
TreSouls - A person with more then one soul in its body - (Soul Color: Dark Blue)
ColdSoul - Frozen in Time soul
TorchSoul - A soul in love - (CAN BE COMBINED WITH ANY OF THE ABOVE SOULS) - (Soul Color: A Pink aura)
WickerSoul - No one in the OFTR (Order Of The Reapers) or Heaven knows what this soul is, or for that matter, who has this soul, due to only one exsisting in the universe. The only known fact about the WickerSoul is that it can only be led to one final destination and not the other, for some unknown reason. The Mythic Council have speculated that the reason why said soul can only go to one destination and not the other is because if it was sent to the other destination, it would become something sinister and, worst case scenario, unstoppable. The Order Of The Reapers have their own theory: They think that the WickerSoul was once a reaper but fell on bad terms and their soul, some how, became the WickerSoul, and sending it to it's opposite destination would destroy the soul forever, rendering the owner of the soul a mere carcass. Though just theories, some members of the Mythic Council have started to lean more towards the Fallen Reaper theory then the Unstoppable Being theory. But, to date, that's all that they have...theories.


*UPDATE #2*
Finished the bios of the Reapers last night (two were my favorite to work on). Going to work on a few more things tonight then do some ideas for a cover next week.

I am sure your comic will do fine it seems like an amazing idea! But if i were to say anything don't get him killed so early on let the readers develop an interest for the detective (sorry short memory) and it will come as a surprise when it happens.
hope your comic will go swimmingly,best of wishes D

Thank you! And yes he is a detective of sorts, he isn't actually dead. See in the world of GrimmSouls, your soul is what keeps you alive. If that is ripped out, your fleshy-bits collapses lifeless to the ground while the soul lives on. At any point in time, the soul can return to their body to come back to life, if they so choose.

It sounds interesting (I somehow missed this thread sorry).

Can a soul go to a different body? What if theirs is ruined... or say trapped inside a stone coffin and is inescapable?

A soul CAN inhabit another body, but it depends on the type of soul one person has. If a body is trapped in a coffin, it means that their time was up and they go to their final destination, either Heaven or The Underworld OR they become a Lost Soul, destined to wonder the world until they fulfill their last wish. But if their body is ruined (like exploded or burned to a crisp), they have two choices: Either go to their final destination or become a Guardian Soul.

Hey thanks! I'm planning on having the first two pages ready by late November, if nothing comes up in RL to distract me from it (like jobs or one of my other projects).

Eh mainly a video series I'm working on and a reboot of my internet show. With the internet show, originally it was just me playing video games and talking to the camera (live on Furstream), but due to crappy connections I couldn't do much. So I'm in the process of rebooting it to be a fun little live show for people to watch on Sunday Nights (I just need to purchase a WiFi booster and work on my camera interactions). Yeah I'm know for planning multiple projects at once and it's a bad habit, but I REALLY want to do GrimmSouls webcomic and get Funday Wolf Night back on the air (ActionWoof is more of a side-thing I can do on free time), but I think I'll put all my focus on making GrimmSouls.

Thanks! It MIGHT come sooner since I'm dropping a few projects and making them more or less side things I can do in my spare time!

Post Re: My Upcoming Webcomic: GrimmSouls
Alrighty...so I decided to hold off on releasing the comic until late November. Why? I...don't have a scanner...at all. The ONLY way I can upload the comic, at the moment, is to take a pic with my phone, send it to my computer then upload it. Problem? Well the lighting in my room isn't the greatest so it would've been hard reading the comic in the pic. So until I can get the cash for scanner, the comic will be delayed until late November (UNLESS I get lucky somehow). Sorry :(

What REALLLLLY sucks is that I don't have a job to get said scanner. So I'll probably ask for one as a B-day gift or, if push comes to shove, christmas gift. If I get it as a christmas gift, then I'll probably have to REALLY work at getting the comic out.

I DO Want to throw this out just quickly: I'm planning on having the comic be on three sites: specific forum, FurAffinity, and MAYBE DeviantArt (If I feel like it).

Newest Update!

OK, so I haven't forgotten the comic. My mind has just been...out of it, for the past month or so. I've also been working on the web-show, Funday Wolf Night (Which is actually set to debut this December), and making sure it's ready for it's airing. BUT, so far, the plan is to get the cover for the first arc of the comic done soon (Late November/Early-December) and showcase it online. So, yeah, I haven't forgotten it. Real life just has a odd way of showing itself.
