Into the heart of the miasma.
The holidays are a bit of a rough time for everyone, so I’m sure you’ll understand that for the next two weeks, I’m not going to be able to give the comic the attention it needs and won’t be updating. We’ve got a brief trip to go see family coming up on the weekend of the 15th, and I’ve got to help get the apartment ready, finish wrapping gifts, etc. Ironically, when I’ve actually started my full-on vacation, starting on the 22nd, I’ll be able to resume updates.
That means that BSF updates will be on hold until 12/25. Your Christmas present will be more of Alkahest Nix’s tragedy. How wonderful!
But seriously. As always, thank you for your patience and understanding. 2018 has been a rough year and I appreciate everyone who has stuck with me and BSF throughout.
I’ll be honest, guys; it’s been several months since my last actual break and I’m starting to burn out. It’s getting daunting to get these pages inked and colored every week, and when I sit down to actually get started my mind just blanks out. Normally things flow pretty freely, but lately things just aren’t coming as naturally as they have been. On top of that, the story is kind of running away with me and I don’t think I’ve been taking the right amount of time to step back and write out the next plot beats ahead of time to avoid the pacing getting bogged down.
Basically, I think if I keep trying to push this pace, it’s just going to get worse. I don’t want that, and obviously neither do you.
So, I’m going to take an as-of-yet unprecedented three week break and, ideally, come back to things with a fresh perspective and more solid preliminary work. That means updates will resume on October 30th, 2018.
It’s been almost eight years of fairly consistent updates at this point, and while I hate to deprive you of that for most of October, I know that I don’t want to stop, and sometimes continuing involves taking breaks in which to step back and get your bearings. So, as always, thank you all for your continued patience and understanding, and I’ll see you on Tuesday, October 30th with a well-rested, fresh perspective and a better sense of plot direction!
Life is happening at me pretty hard this week, and I haven’t had enough time to devote to Page 765. As is always the case with these things, I’ll be delaying it until the next scheduled update day, so see you on Tuesday the 25th, and thank you all, as always, for your patience and understanding.
Its my drawing day this week and I’m feelin’ sick and can’t really get it together enough to, well, draw this week’s pages. Or rather, draw it to the usual standard of quality. You know how it is. As such I’m going to be pushing Page 750 and 751 back to next week, so normal updates will resume on Tuesday, July 31st. I apologize for the delay and thank you, as always, for your patience.
