The first album for the webcomic The Fourth ( thefourthcomic.com
). Whether this will cover the first Chapter or first Part is TBA, but this album will have all the tracks updated. No, this track is not the full album. The entire official track list will be finished up over the next dozen of weeks. Even without reading the comic, I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it.
The "Info" page for each of these tracks will have more details on the production of each track and information on which page in the comic it started from/was inspired by, for any curious
Be sure to keep back in touch! The idea is to have a track available each week.
It was definitely an honor to be asked by Courtney to do this, especially since it's my first true commission ever. I owe it to put a good word for the comic because it's genuinely a good webcomic in the plethora of webcomics out there with a lot of heart, wit, and well-lit exposition in it with using simple characters that slowly delve into complex. Watch the two creators describe it better than I can,
"The Fourth is a story-comic, and while we try to keep it consistently humorous, it’s meant to be read from beginning to end. While essentially a parody of adventure games and the odd and helpless situation of being a villain in such, it is also a tale of family, friendship, fate, and much more, and we do take the characters seriously. Mostly, though, it’s fun, and we want you to laugh. It’s been an immensely rewarding experience crafting a world and its characters together, and we hope you enjoy it half as much as we do."
I leave with this much - Try it yourself. Both the writing and the art has had improvements through it's four years (and going); it now has a prequel arc that they're working on that's easier to start with. If you can't get into it, supporting the music would still mean a lot to both them and I. I hope you enjoy this a fourth of as much as I do.
