Every living being has one thing in common; our hearts have the same set amount of beats. If one dies without using up all of theirs, the remaining heartbeats will begin life anew as bygones. Mal Resmond works with them, helping them with their problems in a world where most people don’t know that they exist…

Bygones Be is an all-ages story about good food, uncanny creatures and helping those in need. It's made by William Lillstjärna and updates every Friday and Wednesday (CET).

Poor precious darling!!!! Really doesn't sound easy! T_T
My heart is breaking right now. ;A; And does the dad's mood somehow attract the bygones? There sure is a lot of them there.

Also I know a kid who got told off for attending a pet's funeral and being late home so yeah. being a kid is hard, parenting is no walking a park either.

It's been a long and unplanned hiatus, but we're back! And with good news!

Lately I've had some extra time off work, so I've been able to buckle down to get all of chapter two done in one big chunk. This means that Bygones Be will update every Wednesday and Friday at least until the end of the chapter!

But being able to update regularly wasn't my only reason for doing this - I've also got print copies of the first two chapters that I will be selling at the Stockholm International Comics Festival in May! If you're able to, please come say hi!

Thank you all for your patience, kind words and continued support. See you all again on Wednesday!

Best of luck and good to hear from you (I was getting a bit worried)! I'm in a similar situation - I update whenever I can because work gets in the way, and when I get sick I end up having to catch up on work before I can do much with comics... So it's very much understandable (at least for me).

A page whenever it happens is better than no page in my book! :)

I wish you luck on your endeavors! And don't worry, you'll sort it all out eventually, promise. :)
Hey everyone, sorry for the radio silence. Long story short - I got really sick for a long time (TWICE!) and got more hours at work, and as a result, Internet presence and comics haven't been my main priority. I haven't had the time or energy to draw, so the buffer I wanted to build up is basically nonexistent.

Because of all this, Bygones Be will update whenever a page is ready until further notice. I wish I could stick to a regular updating schedule, but that's not possible the way my life looks now.

Thank you for your patience!

Are those stickers on the chair? The room is both cosy and so full of sadness. :C

And I keep thinking about how the dad said Norrland DIDN'T have any friends at school, meaning she's not going to school any more and I think that also might be for sad reasons.

Work whichever way you find more convenient, the internets can wait and this comic is a treat to read! :) I'll be waiting patiently. :D

@snailoiler: Oh, I don't believe that was ever mentioned, hence why I assumed Mal was a he.

@Frostwings: Mal is a they, not a him!
And the hands are pushing them away. It was tricky to convey, I might go back and redraw this later to be more clear.

A heads up about updates!

I've had to put the comic on hold a lot this year, which has been very frustrating. To prevent this from happening in the future, my plan is to work on Bygones Be as much as I can for the rest of December, build up a buffer and finish this chapter as soon as possible.

However, I'll be juggling comic work with my day job, which eats up a lot of my time and energy. So before I have a buffer ready I'll probably miss an update or two. But behind the scenes I'll be working EXTRA hard!

Thank you all for your comments, sometimes it takes me a while to answer but I read them all and they make my day!

I think the bygones must be really confused right now... :C

Aaah reached the last page and now I really want more. This comic is really good! Keep up the good work. :)
