Hey again, hey again. It’s been quite a few months hasn’t it? Bah. Where to begin? Well, the easy answer is my computer was busted for a while and I didn’t have access to my scanner and whatnot. The REAL answer though… is that at this point in my life I am not quite sure what I want to do with this comic. Wait-wait, lemme explain!

Storywise, structure-wise, bam, I know exactly what’s gonna happen, I’ve been knowing what’s gonna happen, so it’s not a problem there. But since the past year and a half I’ve gone to college I’ve really felt like I’ve grown up a lot and that includes growing out of a lot of things, comic included. It’s not even a case of me getting tired of the comic I think, more like I no longer feel strongly about or feel connected to the certain themes and styles SoF represents. SoF was influenced by a lot of things I was into in high school, and drawing comic pages now make me feel like I’m trying to imitate something. It’s just not natural anymore. I’m still into comics, no doubt. But stylistically SoF is a little past its prime.

So what now? A lot of people are gonna be angry and guilt-trippy over this like I’m some negligent mother, but believe me, the fate of the comic has given me enough grief as it is. I don’t dislike the comic. I like it very much in fact. And I would really really like to see it done. In fact, I would suck it up and just finish it already if it weren’t for the fact that there are several hundred pages left and that is too much of a commitment these days when I want to be exploring other ideas, having a life, and going to school. So….really what now? I don’t know. I have a few options, but this baby’s been with me for over 4 years and I’d rather sit on it a while before making any drastic decisions. So for the time being I’m gonna call a time-out, and hopefully the next time I see you I will have something definite to say. Until then thank you to all who’ve been supportive, who’ve stayed with SoF all these years, and to all you readers who’ve made the comic what it is, it’s been so crazy cool. Cheers.
