Caliban and Prospero

Hello again! I have some new greeting card art to post soon, as soon as the scans are pieced together and cleaned up. But in the meantime, here are some sketches for a story idea that occurred to me over Thanksgiving vacation...

The story, obviously, is a riff on Shakespeare's The Tempest, one of my less favorite of his plays. When I outlined the plot to wife Julie, she suggested that it would make a good long-form comic. It occurs to me that, if I can complete a 24-page story in one weekend, I should be able to do a 100-page story in four weeks. Anyone up for National Graphic Novel Month?

(As it turns out, there's already a NaGraNoWriMo, but that challenge is for weenies - their target is a 48-page comic script, never mind a completed comic. I'm contemplating something a lot more hard-core.)
