micetemplar_04.jpgIf you missed the first series of the Mice Templar by Michael Avon Oeming, you’ll be happy to know you can read one page a day over at hiddenrobot.com beginning March 3.

THE MICE TEMPLAR is a tale of tragedy and restoration centering on Karic, a young mouse who finds himself thrust headlong into the very real world surrounding the legends of his youth. In addition to the unfolding saga in the Daily format, the universe of MICE TEMPLAR can be explored deeper via the Website materials compiled by writer Bryan Glass and Webmaster Tim Daniel, featuring original unpublished art, early stories, and an exhaustive glossary of all terms, titles and characters: a veritable MUST for all fans of the fantasy epic.

The one page a day thing is a an idea a lot of publishers are trying to implement across websites, in what I believe, to be an attempt to hop on the webcomic bandwagon. While some may not like the slow pace in reading this causes, it actually does work in the long term – just look at The Dreamland Chronicles as an example of a comic book story that works.  And certainly this is a big thing for hiddenrobot (aka Newsarama) as it is a great way to boost page hits.  I’m sure if a publisher approached Major Spoilers, I would certainly consider it, but I think it would serve Image better if the content appeared on its own site.

But that’s just my opinion.
