I’ve now been on this WordPress platform for nearly five years, and meanwhile the Dio-Story and Review sections have kind of been tagging along in static pages, not nearly as integrated with the rest of the site as I’d like them to be.
Well, the Reviews are still pending some integration within the YoJoe framework, but the Dio-Stories are now part of my GeneralsJoes WordPress Content Management System.
What does that mean for the reader? Honestly, not a whole lot. The pages have been slightly reformatted, with some cosmetic navigation differences, but the essence of the stories are the same.
The Drop Down Menu above has been re-coded to reflect the change, so if it’s been a while since you’ve checked out the dio-stories, you may want to consider diving back in.
And as some might suspect, the reasons for doing this are not just to help the current configuration, but also to prepare for new content, so consider this a confirmation that my latest Dio-Story “Darkness Falls” will indeed launch this year.
My current vision is to try and have it rolling by summer, and perhaps even earlier, if everything falls into place. In a perfect world, I’d start the ball rolling at JoeCon, but realizing that event grows nearer every day and I still have a lot of work to do, I’m not sure that’s reasonable.
I’ll try to keep everyone in the loop as progress is made, but meanwhile, hit up the GeneralsJoes Dio-Story section to play some catch up, and check out the Miscellaneous Dio-Story section as well, where I’ve collected a number of smaller stories I’ve done throughout the years.
Also, don’t forget about Self Modifier’s fantastic G.I. Joe vs. Transformers Dio-Story which is a must read for Joe fans and Transformers fans alike! Thanks as always for all of your support, I know this has been a long time coming, I really hope it’s worth the wait.
I really want to thank Mike and his work on the fantastic WordPress “WebComic” Plug in…it’s an awesome plug in right out of the box, and he’s offered some really great support along the way, too. If you’re looking for a nice, quick way to host webcomics on a WordPress platform, you should definitely check it out.
Huge thanks, too, to Brad for his assistance in getting things polished up and ready for launch. I owe ya one!
