Well. This one kicked my butt. Sorry about that. The next one should be a piece of piss though.
Backgrounds take me so long. Especially when they’re written as a plot reveal. “And in this panel: sinister, ancient tunnels; good luck!”
So, it looks like I’m working weekends for the foreseeable, with my days off landing at varying points mid-week. Here is a Wednesday-ish update, and next week will probably be the same. Hate to have such a sloppy schedule, but there it is. Look, just get an RSS reader. Feedly works well, now that Google Reader has gone under.
Would’ve been up sooner, but it’s been so hot here in Canada that our igloo melted.
Comic done! Now to begin day 7 of 7 consecutive work days. And on the eighth day, he rested.
Sorry for last week. I did make a post, but I don’t think anybody saw it under the comic there.
We are glossing over the events of Simmons’ boating holiday. To be honest it was a throwaway joke that we had every intention of reverting to status quo on. But much to our surprise, everybody wanted to actually know what happened. One day we may tell the story of the horror that took place on that river. One day.
Point is, Schaefer’s fine.
He’s not actually shown up since 2011, I guess? Weird.
Bah, dropped the ball this week, din’t I. Got scheduled for some extra weekend shifts, thrown me all out of whack. Also, some tricky panels. Also, life is imitating art a little: see Virus line panel 2. Uurrh.
OKAY I WAS PLAYING WITH MY NEW PHONE THE WHOLE TIME SHEESH
(well I sure had plenty of time on the can to do so)
I could maybe finish the new strip tonight or tomorrow. But it’ll only mean next week’s is late again. Why not let’s run this one at the weekend, then I can get a head start for the next. Because I’m working seven days in a row next week, so I’d be buggered if I was still playing catch up.
Let me rummage around for some content at all, here…
That is all.
Ho ho, good thing we’re following East and Loth as the A-Story, and not staying home with these losers, eh?
Part 1 of some.
My webmaster tells me that our hosting provider tells him that we got switched over to some new server hardware. Should hopefully solve the intermittent outages we’ve had in the recent weeks/months. We’re going to need it, what with all that sweet Guardian traffic we’re pullin down!
