INTRODUCTION

Welcome Gaians and Gino fans! Heck, even fans of other NPCs are welcomed!

Enigma_Nemesis2, Aegea, and I would like to present you our first (and perhaps only) foray into free online comics, starring Gaia's hero, Gino Gambino! Know this:

1. The story will begin right after Gino vanished in the flames of Gambino Mansion (right after Sasha was rescued).
2. It will end (?) when Gino saves Sasha from Jack and Santa's attacks.

Based on certain events throughout the story, Gaians will be able to:
1. Vote for your favourite NPCs to make an appearance (almost every NPC will eventually make an appearance. Literally, including the lesser known ones!)
2. Vote for the outcome of certain events, therefore changing the course of the story.
3. Decide on NPC makeovers (at least appearance wise).

UPDATES


(02/25/2007): E_N2 has decided to do resume as the main artist again, so the comic will now be prepared for new releases soon! He has decided to redesign some of the characters, so don't be surprised to see slight or even major changes to some of the characters already previewed (which isn't alot, so it's all good biggrin ). Headshots of the main NPC characters will slowly be posted, and new revisions to the thread will be made. We will be asking the Gaians who have already submitted a cameo avi to be allowed to make new changes based on the recent collectibles and other items since the last update. We hope to release new pages this week!
