Still here. Made some updates to the site including a drop shadow on the text to make it easier to read. I've also
started doing podcasts and those are now available in the "Podcast" section of the site. I have also launched a Patreon
campaign which can be accessed from the "contact" page. This will go towards helping me continue to create my video
content on my Youtube channel.

It's amazing how easily I can be distracted. Today's comic was done the day after the last comic but I completely forgot
to upload it to the site. *sigh* I guess there goes my comic uploading streak. I've got this bad habit of just quitting
if I happen to miss one upload. Let's see if I can get rid of that habit.

Since the comic is now on the main page again, I really don't see any point in having a link to the comic unless
I'm specifically referring to the content of the comic in some direct/verbose manner. That's not the case for today's
uncharacteristically political offering so we're just going to move on.
I haven't really been struggling with comic ideas this time around as the comic would suggest, but rather it's more of a case of "the comic doesn't look as good as I'd like it to, and it takes too much time to make things look nice, so maybe I should just spend my time on other things". Fortunately I've pushed through those thoughts and have kind of revamped my comic making process. This change behind the scenes means that you may notice some "growing pains" in the art of the comic over the next little while, but in the end I feel like it'll result in more consistent quality in the comic.
I had played with the idea of updating the comic more frequently as I used to but with how busy I am it's just not a feasible goal. As it is I'm barely maintaining my buffer of comics. The buffer is just a comic or two that I've got done in advance in case something happens, so I can go a week or two without making one. I am going to continue to upload a comic on Mondays and if my buffer happens to grow to more than, say, four weeks ahead I'll upload a bonus comic on Thursday. That's not likely to happen, but it's a possibility.
Well, there's a ton I could go on about but I think that I'll leave it at this for now. Game on!

I decided to redo the layout of my site. Let's face it, this site is primarily and will likely always be a site
dedicated to my comic. So now, when you come here the comic will be front and center.
One of the major reasons for me to stop doing my comic is I can't think of any ideas for a comic or I have ideas and no way to write them in a manner that I like. I currently have a small list of topics and rough scripts so I think the comic will be regular for at least the next month :P
I removed the Twitter feed and featured video from the front page and instead I'm going to roll those into their respective sections on the site. The Youtube/video section is under construction but you should now be able to reach me from a few different avenues, including Twitter, from my "Contact" section.
I'm also wondering what the point of having the comic thumbnail beside the news post is anymore since the comic is now front and center. I think I may be doing away with that going forward.

I've really missed being able to vent frustrations through my comic. It seems that people are just becoming
more and more sensitive all the time and it's so annoying. I try and avoid drama as much as possible but when your
main hobby is gaming you tend to come across it quite often these days.
Now I'm not saying that people shouldn't stand up for things that are clearly problematic. I think my problem with this trend of finding everything offensive is the way that these people choose to express that offense. Instead of getting to the core of the problem and trying to explain the precise issue and a way to fix it that is fair, the discussion turns into a shouting match of who can scream their point louder.
Anyways, that's my short spiel for the week. I'm excited to be creating things again and have many new and interesting projects lined up for the coming months, and I really hope that it'll be quite a while before my next hiatus.

Big surprise, life happened and I stopped updating the comic. After the house flooded I honestly had lost all
interest in working on the comic, which is a real shame as it's something I've enjoyed doing since I started it. So
anyways, here we are again, with me resuming the comic.
Why do I even bother with the comic? Well, it's kind of a release. It's an outlet for me to just kind of do whatever I feel like. I don't really make the comic for anyone else. It's a "just for me" thing. I recognize it's not the best. The art is very copy and paste, the jokes are mediocre, the plots are meh, but ultimately it makes me happy to create, and so I shall continue to start and stop the comic for years to come. Hey! At least there has never been a year where I haven't released at least one comic.
It's going to be a bit of a challenge as most of my creative energy and time has been dedicated to my Youtube channel, but I'm going to try to get at least 52 comics out before I go on some kind of extended hiatus yet again.
