Wish you could update more! Although I do respect the fact that u can't. I remember I had serious problems, and just totally couldn't update. But then again, that only lasted a day. So I probably have no idea how you feel. Anyway. Get better, and when u do, make comix.

Cool, I'm the 4th newbie (thanks to my bro).
But yeah, this is getting pretty annoying.

Solutions Ho!

Here's an idea.

Since Josh is unwiling to draw, how's about someone else draws?

Josh can e-mail the guest artist once every so often with how the next strop should go etc, and the artist draws it.

It's similar to the set-up on ClanBOB, where Aaron thinks up the story and Dan draws.

I'm fairly certain this idea has been suggested and rejected before. Although getting guest comics (GAS type) up would be nice. (Though there hasn't exactly been much guest work posted on the forum rescently either)...

I'd do the storyline....but my drawing style is COMPLETELY different. Actually, mine changes like every month. First bug-eye style.....then ninja style......and now Semi-Anime kinda type thing. But then again., I dunno.

Ninja style? You sneak up on the paper with a pen hidden in your sleeve?

Ah. Thanks for clarifying. For some reason I was under the impression that this was the date you were setting for Darthalon to start again.

I'm still under the impression that you set a date at some point. Did you, or am I hallucinating again?

If you qualify "after I return from Anime North" as a date, you are not hallucinating.

As far as I can tell, which never counted for much. Somewhat older, feeling very younger, and with a new body of knowledge that I am still assimilating. My world is a piece of work.

Yeah I just discovered the comic myself recently and I couldn't stop reading it :) Let me also extend my get well soon wishes because I had deep seeded depression for about seven years and know exactly how much it sucks. This comic is definately worth the wait though :)
Hmm, a signature, something to differentiate me from the masses, ahh, nup nothing's there

For those who only check the "official" thread, be it by following the link from the comic page or by reading the forum only selectively:

In another thread, Josh Phillips wrote:The story's just fine as it is, and it'll conclude just fine as well. Every day I wish I could just get the rest of the story out (if only to prove the naysayers wrong), but at the moment it's just not possible.

Wedding preparations aren't taking as much time and energy as I expected they would, which means it's all getting saved up for a few weeks before the big day. *That's* going to be fun. However, these days I'm actually employed and earning money, and of course, money-making endeavours tend to get priority.

I'm still working on getting my artistic bent to return. I've been sketching some stuff (some of it which has been posted in this forum a few weeks back), but I'm not at daily-comic-strip level again yet. Once I can get strips done again, I'll probably build up a buffer of strips before new ones go online, and then hopefully I can keep updates daily again. I'm not sure what to do about the site until then, though.

I hope this sets *some* things straight.

JOSH.

Okay, I'm not making any promises, but I'm going to try resuming Avalon next Wednesday (June 18). But when Avalon resumes, I want it to go daily again. So it all hinges on me being able to build up a bit of a buffer of strips before then (which is kinda on its way already).

So yeah, just a notice. Not a promise.

Notice.

JOSH.

Doc Emmit - It's a reference to a certain strip... I'd look it up, but I'm sure you know how to search the database.

Now, if Avalon came back too, all would be perfect...
