A Slight Delay
Hello! Hope you all are enjoying book three so far! I'm having a blast drawing it for sure!

I just got home from my third con in a row and boy howdy am I tired! I'm sure you noticed that YOTM pages suddenly stopped uploading. That is because I spent most of May drawing brand new posters for the summer convention season and YOTM was put on the back burner. I'm still working on panels, but it might be another week or two before new pages start posting again! I'm hoping that things on my end will calm down a bit so I can actually get some good work done on the comic and not have to have another hiatus! I should be posting again by July.

In the meantime, enjoy this poster I made of the YOTM kiddos.

Continue to be awesome and see you soon!
Hello there!

Just some housekeeping and updates going into the summer season:

1. Pages will now be updated every other day instead of every day. This is because of a frankly rigorous and time consuming convention schedule this summer (I'm planning on getting nothing done on the comic the whole month of June) and I need to make sure the pages I am making now will last until July.

2. The first page of Chapter 22 (the cover page) will be posted at the same time as this update.

3. Chapter 22 will most likely be another 30-ish page chapter. There's a lot to cover and this is not one I can trim down. That means it will take close to two months to complete. Sorry! I hope it's worth it for you guys!

4. I am hoping that I can move back to updating every day in the Fall if not earlier! Again, there's a lot to cover (book three is definitely the longest of the series) so I want to make sure it doesn't drag for too long. Right now book three is 13 chapters long with a slew of short comics (some of them will be exclusives in the print version).

5. If you're enjoying this series, please consider my Patreon! I post a bunch of stuff on there including some making-of material for Year of the Marachi! I do sketches for patrons for as low as $5 a month!

I think that's it for now. Sorry for having to scale back - I need to make sure I can keep up with my posting schedule without getting sick or burnt out! I have 4 conventions within a month's time starting Memorial Day weekend, so my time is a little tight this next stretch!

Have a wonderful day everyone, and enjoy chapter 22!

Book Three is Coming VERY SOON!
Hello!

First off, a big THANK YOU for getting this far! It means a lot to me!

Second, we're only DAYS AWAY from new YOTM pages! I've been working hard to get material done so I can keep regular updates going! I'm really excited for book three, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have been writing and drawing it!

This is the official cover for YOTM Book Three: Bejimatu. I'll be posting some some odds and ends like updated character profiles, concept art, and more in the coming days, but soon there will be new pages to enjoy!

Cheers!

@night_walker: That's super strange! It seems that it just started glitching like that recently. I'll try to fix it...

There's an error in the "Next" link on this page. It redirects to the previous day's page.
Book Three Update!!! (also thanks!)
First off, THANK YOU SO MUCH fore reading this far! I know this is a bit of a hull to read through, but your support really means a lot to me.

Second, I know book two literally just ended but I wanted to give an update on when to expect book three content. I am already in production and even have some pages done, but please do not expect any new content until February 2018. While I can probably push out a prologue at least before then, I really want to make sure I am ready to get chapters done quickly and efficiently so book three doesn't take three and a half years to make like book two did. Basically, I'm drawing a bunch of new backgrounds, finalizing character designs, and making sure the script is just about finished before I go too far down the panel-drawing rabbit hole.

This could take some time, and I apologize for the hiatus, but doing all of this now could make sure I keep a consistent upload schedule for the entirety of book three (pending any huge life events or emergencies that swing my way). I'll make sure to at least have a prologue out by February, and hopefully by March I will have a cue of chapters all ready to go for your reading enjoyment.

I've been very proud of what I've done already for this series, but I am EXTREMELY excited for book three. I'm really looking forward to sharing more of this story with you.

Cheers! Until the next update! Happy holidays and happy new year!
