I’m trying a fun little experiment as a way of promoting this comic as well as adding a little more to the story outside of the comic itself. I created a new Twitter account: @NathanSorry which will consist of Nathan’s own thoughts during the lost two month period from 9/11 to the time he shows up at Freddy’s Place in North Carolina.
Now, before you say anything, yes I realize that this story takes place years before Twitter was ever invented and by nature Twitter is a real time medium so it doesn’t really make any sense for Nathan to be tweeting. But if the Mad Men characters can do it (and to great success) then maybe I can make it work too. We’ll see. Let me know what you think of the idea and the execution.
So follow Nathan and see what’s going through his head while he wanders the country, slowly sinking into his new identity. If you’re not on Twitter don’t worry – you won’t be missing crucial elements to this story. I never intended on delving too deeply into this two month period in the comic outside of some verbal references. Frankly, Nathan does a whole lot of nothing besides watching tv, sleeping in motels, picking up a few items that Pryor has left behind, and slowly growing paranoid and crazy. Nothing too visual but it could play out very well in text messages. But think of this as one of those Lost games inbetween seasons where it can add a new layer to the story but if you don’t partake you’re not missing out on any important plot details.
