Sammy knows that Pogo is in hearing range -- so it's possible he's letting Troy make his own conclusions.

Disclaimer: I would be overjoyed to see Troy screw himself royally, and not in a fun way.
Samsid....T-T.....he's not really not to hurt Pogo, is he...?

Have a good break!!! ^-^/

well, he ain't finished with using the weapon, duh. not that i agree with you Troy, on any account or view you might have - but even this one misses the point.

enjoy your break! and i^m very glad that things look good for you, and that your patrons' participation make it possible for you to continue making art instead of wasting your talent on a bread job - *cough* even i'm not one of them *cough* ^^
so seeya soon and come back well rested ^^

And that's the end of chapter 3!!!!! Dudes, y'all don't understand, I've been working on this chapter since FEBRUARY 2015! :O It was a really long chapter. ;_; But so much awesome stuff happened during work on this chapter, the biggest thing from my perspective being that DOTU's Patreon grew enough to really be able to support the work I put into the comic, meaning that unless my financial situation changes drastically, I'm no longer in imminent danger of having to drop DOTU for better paying work. (This is especially thanks to the influx of new patrons after launching Merritt's story, and all the patrons who continued to pledge before and after. <3) And that's a huge deal because this is my pet project that's carried me through the worst times, and I'll always be grateful to you guys for giving me the means to continue working on it.

MY END OF CHAPTER HIATUS BEGINS NOW! I will be back on Monday, August 7 (first Monday of August) with the cover of chapter 4! Again, this is a working hiatus. I will be doing the following things during the break:
-June's monthly Patreon rewards will go out this week, and rewards will continue through July as always.
-Merritt's Story will continue to be posted on Patreon. We'll have at least 3 new chapters, starting with chapter 12 this Thursday.
-The new website will go up! I'm aiming for mid-July so I have time for troubleshooting, but I'm also playing it by ear.
-I'll be finalizing the script for chapter 4, developing some new environments, and getting a head start on pages. I'll post previews to Patreon when I can.
-I'll be hosting two public Q&As! Next Monday, 7/3, I'll host a CREATOR Q&A on my personal tumblr - bob-artist.tumblr.com. My last tumblr Q&A was about general DOTU questions, so this time I'm doing one about creator-related questions - anything about me, personal or professional questions, etc. You don't need a tumblr account to participate. Just head over to the blog and look for the "Creator Q&A" link up at the top of the page. I'll start answering questions on 7/3, but you can begin sending them now.
-The second public Q&A will be on DOTU's Facebook page. It will be a general DOTU Q&A, and I'll make a post to open the FB Q&A on Monday 7/17. It'll probably be open for that day only, and I'll answer questions in real time.
-I'll also keep you guys updated on any news on social media and Patreon.

And finally, we have a new Top Webcomics voting incentive! This is a sequel to the last one because the awesome Linmayu sent me a picture I just HAD to use. (Thanks, dude!) It reuses the same art as the last incentive, so it might look the same at first glance. You can vote and see the image by clicking the TWC button below or in the sidebar.

@bob-artist: lmao.. so true XD
honestly, i still laugh thinking about the camping story - never heard/read someone so bent on it ^^

@portisHeart: Honestly that's probably why everyone thinks Pogo would make such a good dog - he never lets go of his bone either.

(sorry couldn't resist ^_^; )

Troy, worse than a dog, you just can't let the bone go once you bit it, what? >_<

we'll miss you & the gang, but i hope you'll enjoy your well deserved break ^^

Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that Sammy had Troy pegged as untrustworthy & just now proved it to himself? Samsid is doing an excellent job of paying out rope.
Awww, a break?! T-T Well, I can't wait to see the new website!

Only one page left till the end of the chapter! :O :O

Merritt's story chapter 11 will go up this Thursday! Next Monday's update will be the last of the chapter, and the last before I take a break. I'll announce at that time what my return date will be, since I haven't decided on it yet. It seems like this summer's been pretty low key, so it might be the best time to do a slightly longer hiatus in order to build a buffer going into chapter 4. So the hiatus will be something between 4 and 6 weeks. During that time, we'll get the brand new website, and Merritt's story will continue to update on Patreon. I'll also take my super-detailed outline for chapter 4 and make it into a script, and hopefully get the cover and a couple of pages done before updates start again. I also plan to do another Q&A during the hiatus.

The Pogo/Samsid minicomic is still up as this week's voting incentive! You can vote and see the image by clicking the TWC button below or in the sidebar.

Troy, Troy.. respecting your king is more than calling him "King" every second sentence. or curtsy, which you haven't but i'm sure you'd look very pretty doing *lol*. it's believing in his judgment, supporting his effort, respecting his opinion - and STFU.
Troy training Pogo?! Yeah right, he's more likely to have Pogo get an "accidental" fatal injury in training than actually teaching Pogo how to defend himself! XP It's better if Troy stays away from Pogo and have someone else teach him!

Let's all sit down and listen to Troy talk. -_-

Hope y'all are doing well! We hit 3000 subscribers on the new Webtoon mirror last week, so yay! There's only one more month to try to meet the subscriber/view requirements for a Patreon bonus pledge, so I definitely appreciate anyone who subscribes and reads on Webtoon! You can click on the big banner link to see it. The comic is formatted for mobile/vertical scrolling on that site, which means bigger panels with more close-ups of the art.

Merritt's story chapter 10 also went up last Thursday on Patreon for anyone who missed it. Other than that, not too much going on. I'm just plugging away and trying not to drown. :D

The street name minicomic is still up as the TopWebcomics voting incentive. You can vote and see the image by clicking the TWC button below or in the sidebar.

I think Bardia has to be alive to collect on the vow. Samsid probably has reason to think that he won't be.
I don't like Troy, but I have to say I shares reservations about the King's Vow too....Hopefully, there's loop hole in this deal once the year is up so Pogo and Samsid can still alive and free...

dont-tell-him-dont-tell-him-dont... ugh, i really hope Sam is NOT going to explain to Troy what Pogo can do - or more exactly, what he KNOWS Pogo can do..
