Childish Things

By May 16, 2008Site-news


I was beginning to think that this update would never come to pass. Today I can finally show you the first chapter of Mathilda. It’s been a really tough couple years bringing this thing together and it wouldn’t have been possible without Nick and Charlie’s donations. Thanks SO much, guys.

I also have to thank the artist, Christophe. My experience with artists hasn’t been the best but Christophe is just so professional. There was constant communication and if he said I’d be getting pages the next day I would damn well get those pages the next day. You can check out his website over here.

Personally, I’m so relieved to see it finished but I must admit that the fact that I know very little about the art of making comics definitely shows. I’ve learned a lot in putting together this chapter and I think we can only get better.

The comics are also unfortunately without colour. Financially it just didn’t make sense. However, if someone out there has the skill and the desire to do colouring for a minimal price, please send me an email.

One last thing, before we get to the comic. A brief disclaimer.

The Mathilda comic is a work of fan fiction and should not be considered a serious continuation of the character from the film The Professional.

Now go get it.

Chapter 1

Now for cap in hand time. If you support this project and have a bit of money to spare, donations would be crazily appreciated. The money that Charle and Nick have put forward has gone entirely into paying the artist. Thanks to Maryline and Steven for their contributions after our last np.comic.

That’s it for now but I’ll be back with more Natalie news tomorrow. On the horizon we’ve also got a new np.comic as well as a continuation of the April fools day Mathilda comic (the funnier one, for those we prefer that) on the way.

    Wow! I hope you send this one to some official reps. of Natalie. I mean this completely serious. This could be the start of a fantastic new movie. It’s for sure a fantastic start of a NP Comic(sorry…don’t really know how to call it in a different way).

    PS: You got me fooled till the final apperance of Mathilda. Till then I thought it was a really well made comic. But I always thought “Mathilda” was out of character! 😉 The final hello of Mathilda was pure gold. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    Yesterday’s Cannes jury members interview has been uploaded on the site’s video section, for anyone interested. Just remember to use VLC (, as it’s in .ogv (Ogg Theora) format.

    lol, I was reading the first pages of the comic and thought it didn’t make sense… Then I realised I was reading from right to left, like in mangas… =/

    Great first chapter, I’ll probably donate some money next month, coz i’m broke right now.

    “it wouldn’t have been possible with Nick and Charlie’s donations”

    And yet, somehow, it was done! 😛

    Jeez, why on earth did it take 2 days for that typo to get mentioned?
