@eishiya: I've lived in hurricane country too (New Orleans and Houston), so no worries. Stay safe and we'll be here when you get back!

Congrats on the 2 year anniversary!

And echoing the others, hope the hurricane treats your place well -- glad you'll be somewhere staying safe!

@Oly-RRR: I'm not sure it's healthy to relate to Blair here.

That is one badass cover! I like their eyes/expressions the most.

And I hope Blair's voodoo kicks Irma's butt and all will be well! :U

That feeling when I realise I relate to the skow more than to Blair here. XD THOSE EYES

@Glueckskeks: The real question is where he'll be putting those fingers next D8

And yesss I hope my stuff is all still there and dry when I get back.

Great cover! Blair looks appropriately sinister (where did he just put his fingers? D:) and Roy and Tim have nice eyebrows :D

Good to hear you're staying somewhere safe during the storm. I hope all your things will remain safe

@daidaishar: Awesome :D Thank you! Too bad you found this comic right at the start of a forced hiatus. Damn storms :T

@eishiya: My favorite types of stories are ones that are based on familiar tropes, but tackle them from interesting angles or take them off in new directions, and that's the feeling I get from Black Dram :)

@daidaishar: Thank you!
I'm really happy to hear that about the comic, I have some anxieties about it feeling samey and tropey :'D

Happy 2 year anniversary and best wishes to you during the hurricane.

Just found the comic and read it all in a sitting. The art, story and setting all feel very unique and I love it!

@sentiashinou: Thank you! Be careful not to set your street or nearby forest on fire.

Stay safe!! Maybe I'll ward off some misfortune by burning an effigy like in the previous few pages. :P

Good news: It's Black Dram's 2nd anniversary today! About time it got a proper cover, so here we go.

Bad news: Hurricane Irma is (probably) coming and I am evacuating tomorrow. I don't have time to draw the chapter break image before I leave, and I will not have access to my tools until I come home after the hurricane. If things go well and my house doesn't get flooded or torn apart while I'm gone, I'll update the comic probably on the 20th. If things do go wrong, well... who knows. I might have to buy a new computer before I can draw pages again, but at least I'll be alive and dry. If things take a bad turn, I'll probably tweet about it.

tl;dr: I'll be safe somewhere inland, but it might be a while until the next update, depending on how Hurricane Irma treats my house.


Sept 20th Edit: I'm alive and my stuff is fine, but I'm still very tired physically and mentally from the ordeal so there will not be an update this week. I'll have the chapter break art up next week.

@Captain Ghost: Haha, that's actually fine! That it felt quick is the important part.
And eee I'm glad to hear you got interested in some of the details!

@eishiya: oh geez, uh... shoot, I didn't really time it I'm afraid, but it still felt like a pretty quick read as far as I can recall!

(I got hooked into the details on a few pages so some took a bit longer than others but in general my impression is that larger archive or not, it was still fairly quick, yeah.)

Sorry! I've the memory of a goldfish xP

That went about as well as anyone could've hoped for :'D
...except for those of you who were hoping someone would get a new pet, I guess.

This is it for chapter 5! That means it's time for a break, so I guess I'll see you all in a couple of weeks with the break art.

Today's your final chance to vote in the chapter break poll on Patreon!

@Captain Ghost: Wah thank you!

I'm curious, how long did the binge take you? I used to tell people this was a quick read since there's not a lot of dialogue, but since the archive has grown, I wonder if that's still the case.
