Sorry, I planned to start up again at the beginning of May and got a couple uploaded, but then my internet has been out. Got more comics in the buffer now. I need to keep updating solid for a month to get moved back on the the Keenspot active frontpage.

Thanks for waiting for me everybody!

calling someone an idiot probably isn't the best way to get a favourable response from them...

Meh..

While I agree blasting the artist with insults is NOT the way to motivate them, I really can't blame anyone for being mad.

This isn't the first time he's left with no word, and Keenspot ISN'T Comic Genesis.

Basic respect for one's audience is a major playing factor in a professional Illustraitor's makeup. It seperates the wanna-bee's from the hacks.

I have enjoyed the comic thus far.

I have also been frustrated by the lack of updates and the non information when the artist hits hard times/loses comp access/WHATEVER...

Hitting the front page and saying "sorry.. problems.. Hiatus" is simple professionalism. It's not been done.

Whatever the problem is.. I have little sympathy at this point. I'm not alone.

I agree completely with Crazeyal. Especially about the notice of a hiatus. I think it was last year I got very surprised when Teague wrote he was sorry, he had planned on starting the web-comic again at a certain point, but had first done it now. There was no notice on it, so how could any of us know?

I had hoped that the new LJ-community would contribute to keeping the web-comic alive and at least be a place where he would write notices about breaks and they would still be there, since he updates the frontpage and the old news are out unless I copy/paste for a discussion-thread. But alas, as far as I know I'm still waiting for his reply to a question there.

I love the comic dearly and will continue checking back to see whether there's an update, but no comments at all shows a lack of respect.

EDIT: *looks up* Teague's comment earlier was pretty much what he wrote on the frontpage.

You know, I'm really getting kind of pissed. We were right in the middle of a big storyline, and he just stops updating. :evil:

Don't stop now! If you let down your guard, several hundred strips could flood onto the site, and you'd be so far behind the curve! Eternal vigilance!

Yes, I'm an idiot for not explaining myself sooner.

Yes the comic is updating now.

The reason I stopped in the middle of a huge storyline was that the storyline itself screwed up my writing.

I feel like I should say more, but anything else would just be trying to shamelessly excuse myself.

Story lines

Well there is always the approach used in "Doctor Colin's Monster" when the story got too complex. Basically "They all drove over a cliff and died". Of course then there is that whole re-animating characters issue; oh wait , that works here

RSS Feed

I understand it's probably hard to get going again regularly after over a year of no updates. Would it be possible to put in a RSS feed so that we know when you update next? I know several webcomics have done so.

Good idea! Where can I go about finding out how to set that up?

Ask some of the other webcomic artists. Dan Shive, Adrian Ramos, Starline Hodge, and Mark Mekkes are just a few who have RSS feeds on their webcomic. You might also try searching majorgeeks.com to see if they have a tutorial on it.

But the whole point of a doomsday device is lost if you keep it a secret. Why didn't you tell anyone?
:-? I hope you'll be back soon. I know getting past a writer's block isn't a predictable thing ( I just deal with the assembly code writer's version, but it's no fun either ) .
