Technicolor London is getting a new title! Why do you ask? For legal reasons lol.
The company Technicolor had their lawyer contact me with a valid Copyright Infringement. My comic's name was conflicting with Technicolor's London branch because my comic is the top search.
I never in a million years thought something like that could happen lol! It's kinda crazy so see how far its gone thanks to all your support these years though!
Eitherway, they were nice enough to give me time to sort this out, and figure out how to re-brand my comic without using the word Technicolor. It's been a crazy few days but I'm pleased with this new direction. The old title will always have a special place in my heart. I came up with it back in 2009, and started posting it online in 2010. And it's better it happened sooner rather than later when a Kickstarter is in the works next year.
So on to the new title and what it means. Hazy London.
After trying to find words that stick to rainbows and colors while still trying to capture something as catchy as the old title. It was hard XD. Nothing worked that well and after a bit of brainstorming, I thought maybe it was time to look back at whats done and whats gonna happen in the future of this comic. Instead of being tied down to the rainbow motif, why not try to find something in the middle. And in the end, Hazy had the right look and feeling. It's along the lines of where I want this this comic to go tone wise gradually.
It's gonna take time to get used to it, learning to hashtag this comic as such, saying the name over and over. Not just for you guys, but for me. And surprisingly, i'm not too devastated. Just a bit sad but somber. But also tired cause I had to draw new banners and ads these past few days lol! It could have been worse but a title change isn't so bad. It's still the same comic, and it's still continuing with no issues!
So life lesson 1 if you guys ever start comics, try googling your title and see what comes up. So you too can avoid any legal infringement! I didn't have the luxury back in the day cause of dial up internet and simply not knowing they existed in highschool and never looking into further XDD!
I hope you all have a great day! I'll see you guys with new pages starting on the 22nd. <3
