I hope JH comes back some day, this is such a good comic
but ofc no rush, just wanted to let you know people still love it! Even if you don't continue it, I'm glad I got to read it <3
Its 2017 and in rereading this one comic I was like, why the fuck is alex in this strip? but nope, blonde Jord.

I'm so glad we all got to hear from you. I've been waiting and hoping to hear something, but I usually don't reach out to others much.

I do want to say though that I've been reading JH for...A long time. Definitely through high school and probably before. This comic has always given me a world to turn to when mine was too much. When I was struggling and feeling alone and everything was terrible I would stay up and read and reread JH. This comic, and you, have gotten me through some of the harshest moments of my life just by me being able to read this world and fall in love with all these characters.

I've rarely felt more intensely linked and entwined with a fictional universe before, save maybe Harry Potter.

Thank you for all your work Roy, thank you for all the hours and days and years you've spent making other people feel loved and accepted and not alone. Thank you for helping make me who I am and giving me friends when I thought I'd never have another one again.

So very glad to hear you are still with us, and are moving towards a better place--because that is what is important. I've been following this comic since I was a young little bean, and it's helped me through so much, but it wasn't just the comic--it was seeing an author who was similar to me in so many ways, and was doing something so cool. So, even though we don't know each other personally, you're a wonderful soul, and you being okay is far more important than any comic could ever be.

Hi, Roy! I don't want to say this to try to toot my own horn but I'm one of those ppl who have been reading since you were a couple-few years in. I love jh and all of its multitudes of characters and storylines. I love your creativity and your storytelling. I love your art style and your writing style. I love everything about jh.

That being said, please take all of the time you need to get back up on your feet. Your mental health may be in an upswing right now, but if it swings back down in the near future, please know that none of us expect you to work or post through it if you don't have the Anything. This comic is about you and what you need and your mental health Always comes first.

Please take care of yourself and don't hesitate to let any one of us know if you need anything from simple comment support to money or whatever. We are here for you.

It is GREAT to hear from you and I'm sorry to hear that you've had some hard times. Just try to take care of yourself and hopefully you'll be back up and running in no time! Thank you for being so amazing in everything you do and for letting us know what's been going on. You got this!!

Anyway I think it's safe to say that most if not all of the fandom feels the same way I do. You mean a lot and we all just want the best for you. Stay safe, my dude, and feel better.

(Please give my best to your kitties I love them already!)

Oh man Roy!!!!! Dude I am so happy to hear from you again.
I'm so sorry shit's been so tough for you lately :( Your cats sound awesome, and I'm glad you've found a great apartment. But I know mental health can kick ass really hard and I'm so sorry about your job, both that it made you so miserable but also that you lost it?? like. Idk it's weird I just want you to be happy bruh.
But like honestly. Take as much time as needed, we're all just super glad to know you're like, not dead? XD I think I can pretty comfortably say that you mean so much to all of us in our little JH fandom <3

It's good to hear from you! It sucks that life has been so hard on you, but I'm glad you're doing what you can to put yourself in a better place. Thanks for the update - I'll be waiting until you're ready to come back to JH
hi everybody its roy breaking my silence finally. if you follow any of my jh-related accounts on tumblr you may have already seen this but it would be shitty of me not to post it here

first of all i want to say im sorry for worrying so many of you. i received not just quite a few comments on jh itself, but messages here on smackjeeves and on tumblr, all wondering how im doing, hoping for a response, and i answered none of them, so ill understand if youre too angry with me to forgive me. im not expecting you to. but i didnt ignore you because i didnt care; i couldnt get myself to respond because i kind of couldnt believe anybody actually could care. regardless, i want you all to know that i have no words for how deeply i appreciate how much you care about both me and this comic. its difficult to process people telling you that you mean something to them when you, yourself, are convinced of your own worthlessness and failure.

the last four or five months have been some of the worst ive ever had in regards to my mental health. i really dont want to get into the details, but since i sort of fled from jh, things got worse and worse for me; this affected my job performance, and by the end of the year, i learned id been fired from the university at which id been teaching. i cant say i was surprised, since a lot of my mental health issues were exacerbated by that job and i really shouldnt have been teaching when i started the semester in the state that i did. but im saying this just to give you all kind of an update on where ive been and why things have been too bad for me to work on jh or even think about working on it--too bad for me to be able to think about anything having to do with jh.

these tweets are a very brief summary of where i was at the time i made them. things havent changed much for me wrt working on jh at this point. i dont know when ill be able to get back to work on it, but id really like it to be sooner rather than later. i still have a lot that i want to do with jh, and i really dont want to just leave it where it was. this may will be jh's 10th anniversary, which is unbelievable--i know some of you have been reading since, if not the very first page, then within the first year of two of it starting, which is completely unreal to me. ive watched some of you go from talking about being in high school to graduating high school to starting and then graduating college. and its not even a matter of me feeling obligated to keep working on jenny haniver for your sakes, or feeling like i owe something to you; i want to do it because i love it--the world, the characters, everything--and part of why i love it is because so many of you love it enough to have made it a part of your lives.

thats what ive wanted since the beginning: to make something that affects people in a positive way.

and thats why im posting this now. i spent the better part of the end of 2016 feeling like id failed--id failed to keep myself on schedule making jh, id failed to keep it updated, id failed to keep in touch with you, everything else in my personal life was feeling like a failure. but im at a point where, even though ive lost my job and i still dont know what the future holds for my career and for jenny haniver, my mental health is on an upswing. i dont have to go back to a job that makes me want to kill myself. ive moved to a beautiful new apartment. ive made a lot of amazing friends both online and, for the first time in what feels like ever, offline. i live with my best friend and i have two dumbass fat cats who like sitting on me. i found a hobby (d&d) that doesnt require me to sit in front of the computer. i have a lot of things im going to start this year that im really excited about! and even though certain things are fucking scary as hell and the possibility that my mental health could plummet all over again still lingers, i feel so, so much better than i did two months ago. all of this, and knowing that jenny haniver is something that means so much to so many of you, makes me feel for the first time in such a long time like im not a failure.

so, once again, im sorry for just fucking off. i didnt intend to, but that doesnt matter. it scared a lot of you, and probably made you feel like i didnt appreciate your concern. i hit a breaking point and handled it, like so much else in my life, in a bad way, but i dont think im going to do it again. every message and comment i received means so, so much to me.

i still dont know when jh will update again. i want to build my buffer back up to something decent--at least a month's worth of pages--before i start posting again, but i havent started working on anything yet. im healing from a pretty devastating injury. i need more time before i can get back to work. ill keep you posted, though.

thank you so much, for reading this comment, for reading jenny haniver. for everything. its not over, and im as okay as i can be.

love,
roy
hey, um... i feel kinda awkward since i've been following this comic for years and never commented before, but i've been concerned about you. i made an account on here finally just so i could say, this comic has brought me so much joy over the years and i really appreciate all the effort you've put into it. i wish you the best and i hope things get better for you. if you feel up to it sometime, maybe you could just let us know how you're doing?
i really really hope you're alright. i know the election was a drain on a lot of us. we're all pulling for you.
Don't care about any new comic pages, just would love an update about whether you're okay! Really worried, and I wish there was a way to contact you to find out ):
Ugh my stomach is in knots, I hope you're ok. Keeping you in my thoughts <3
