@khalia602: Thank you, this comic will go on until CH8 ends, then its going on Hiatus. If more people commented how much they appreciated my work, then maybe COGS wouldn't have become such a burden on me.... The newest page will be up very soon. It always goes up at 5 PM US west coast time (GTM-8)

Sad comment
I actually loved this, it made my day to watch because I could actually see your art progressing, really sorry to hear this...
I put this off until it made me very uncomfortable thinking about how I had to draw it...


Also, the Galaxy Map is up on Tiger's Saga, http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=154666 But I won't add comics until CH 8 ends here.
Taking hiatus on comics is a good way to let your mind rest and solve problems that once were. For instance. I took a 2 year hiatus off of one of my comics I have on dA 'cause I had NOOO idea where I was going with it. Then suddenly something clicked and I had the entire story at my finger tips.

Taking a break and backing away from the issue can often lead to resolution ^^ At least that's what happens with me *shrug*
@Mars714: HECK YES.

@Pow Pow: Thank you, It's just frustrating for me to post things and get so little in response. My work means a lot to me, I want to be able make a living of things like this in the future. But more than that I suppose I just want confirmation that my work has become, well, good. Like I said in the first one, I've made comics before, comics that have made NO SENSE, and should probably be destroyed... If you look back at page one of COGS, there is a entirely different style used, and things have improved so much. IDK I guess I'm just insecure...

Welp, this probably means that lurkers like me should come out of the blue.

Why would you think that your comic has no following? No one is really commenting on pages, but that just might mean that the 45 fans just aren't those type of people who want to comment on every single page. Maybe some of those 45 might not be following every single page or not checking up on the comic anymore and forgot to unfav, but I find it more likely than naught that most of them do actively follow and enjoy the comic.

As for Cogs, I've enjoyed it. You have a lot of interesting ideas and execute them well enough to keep readers like me and Flare the Ninetales on the other page interested. I find myself looking forward to pages to see what happens next.

If you have to cancel the comic, I'll be fine, it'll be disappointing but it's the author's, or your, choice if you want to continue it, and if you don't want to continue it, then you really shouldn't. If you have to put it on hiatus, I'll be fine, I could wait. If you have to end it in an unsatisfying way, it'll be fine, at least the comic gets an ending, and that's what counts at this point, right?

As for help with the ending, maybe you could try making a plot graphic organizer/diagram/triangle? It might help you try to figure out more details of the end, but I can't be so sure. Basically, I'd recommend trying to find out what the conflict overall is, when must that conflict be solved, and how must that be solved. (The Climax) Then just keep building until the conflict reaches the point where it must be solved. You probably already know all of this, but at least I could say I tried.

Anyways, sorry if this comment is terrible, I'm honestly not used to commenting on comics. I'll try to keep in mind to try to comment in the future, though.

@Flare the Ninetales: Well, my main problem with COGS is there IS NO ENDING. and endings are important. In COGS things just keep building and building, but I have no greater plain. ... There is one 'fade out' type ending I thought about once, but it was VERY UNSATISFYING. and I didn't really want to make an ending that left the reader so upset or out of the loop... When you say, "do you have any idea how much I like this webcomic?" I feel my response is, I truly do not know. The only way I can figure out if people like or dislike my work is when they TALK to me. There hasn't been a new comment in some time... I feel like, honestly, COGS is a good story, but it has no deeper meaning than whats at the surface. I want to make more complex comics that make statements about life and living. Maybe... maybe I will finish COGS, with my unsatisfying ending... But you must remember, when an artist isn't passionate about their work, you get a product that is less that it could be... So, the question becomes, Do you want an ending even if it means it may be a disappointment?
What. The. Heck. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH I LIKE THIS WEBCOMIC? And yet you claim that you don't have a following... Not reviewing does not mean that people do not like this comic! Most webcomics rarely make it over 20 faves! Heck, I've even seen this comic in the "popular" section of the Smackjeeves menu! It's a bit too late to say that this is not the comic you want to be known for. But you know what? It's far better to be known as the creator of a bad comic than to be known for the creator of an unfinished one. Don't leave me hanging, damnit!

Sorry
I have enjoyed this comic, at least when I first started it. But as I said its become a burden. Tiger's Saga will be available Here: http://tigerssaga.smackjeeves.com or here: http://tigerssaga.tumblr.com

I am waiting for until I can make it a donator comic so I can upload the first post which is a Flash.
haha XD Nerd speak
I love this comic keep it up!
Hehehe~

Calvin's in trouble.
((Why do all the comments so far have Pokemon related usernames? It's a little weird...))
@Flare the Ninetales: Oh well he's boned ^^'
@T-H-E GUY: It would be like if you got drunk, then started spewing whatever what was currently on your mind. You would not be conscious, or remember anything afterward, but you would be telling the truth. Which is why Levi looks so nervous.
eh hehh~ ... ehh he he ha ... AHHH HA HA HA HAAAAA*deap breath* i don't get it T^T
And... He's back. Nice to see you too, Calvin!
Ahaha XD typical.
