I just wanted to throw this up. I'm still hammering down the middle pages, and June's thumbnailing things.

But the epilogue is definitely being prepped, and we're working away at it.

If you are in Binge Mode, the last story panel is <, whereas the first filler piece is >.

Take care everyone, and we'll try to let people know when it starts updating actual strips again.

Wait... epilogue? :o

June offered to do 10ish pages to give me a chance to squeeze the last little bit of the story in. You'll definitely see the crunch, but I think it gives a lot more closure.

We've been talking about doing it for a while now, I guess we just didn't reach people... Must be our terrible PR guy!

You have a PR guy?

Anyways, I am glad you are giving the story a proper close and tying up the major loose ends.
Will we see a page or two of XX years later, where they are now as well?
Magravan edit delete reply
Yes, and he's terrible! (It's me)

We are giving the story a better end, and tying up some loose ends, let's not get crazy now, it's only 10 pages ;)

And yes, we will be giving some insight into the future.

Curse yoooou. I wrote a couple words for that page. Maybe 5 or 6ish. But they are good words!

And still 0 on the Lettered part. I probably won't bother until I've gotten at least more than half of them.

I'm not sure when we're actually going to start updating, so I'm not in too huge a rush to get them lettered..

At least this way if something comes up, I can adapt a little bit easier.

Hey, awesome book. What are you using to house it? Wordpress?

Heard about your site while watching Jonathan Rector. What programs do you use?

Hi there,

We host on ComicFury... This layout is pretty much one of the basic layouts. We used to have a custom one, but I found that it was causing some difficulties, so I switched it back to the default.

Skrael is the artist (as you can see by her name), so I will let her explain what she uses to make the art :) I use Illustrator for the word bubbles though.

Hi there! Thanks for your interest and feedback :D From an art point of view, I have been either using Photoshop CS5 or 6, depending on where in the timeline you're reading. I also switched from an Intuos 3 to a Cintiq 21UX somewhere in the middle of the comic. I plan to start using Manga Studio 5 for our next and new upcoming comic Fuss & Shush. Other programs I also use are Wings 3D, Poser and Google Sketchup to help me set up the scenes, especially backgrounds and perspectives. *ugh* :)

All caught up and looking forward to the Aftermath. Great strip by the by, great art, story & the funny!

Were does the progress stand now?!?
Magravan edit delete reply
Progress hasn't moved too far since the last update. The page that had to be added was added, but the uncertainty about how it would affect things resulted in a bit of an art slump.

I believe she was working on something unrelated, but getting the artistic juices flowing again, so we'll hopefully have some headway made in the next little while.

I might letter and release the first page, just so that people get a sense of what's going on. I just don't want to start releasing pages, get caught up to where the art is, and then pressure June before the ending.

Fortunately, there are lots of areas in which the story does not directly touch on that could result in future side projects, if we are so inclined.

As a side note, we're looking forward to seeing your own comic get going!

I came here after a long time thinking "maybe they start over again" and I got 10 new pages :D
Thank you. Really love your work at TOGM.
