Man, Keno and them get around!
I'm just gonna reassure everyone that I've no intention of becoming a parent.

Actually some of our readers might not be familiar with the word Schadenfreude or the musical Avenue Q, so here's a catchy-ass vocabulary builder.

Doodly Advenchas of Keno continues in the vote incentives!

They're helping
As I lie in bed, sick with a vicious cold, and with two cats sitting on top of me in what I'm guessing is an attempt to make me feel better, I wonder, "how is that different from any other day?"

Apparently this is a thing, Twitter was talking about it

Gotcha. Yeah Poe's got a lot to get used to. In answer to your question I don't answer that kind of question :P

Feeling a bit better, apparently the whole admin room is sick now though and the boss has still managed to evade it, so it's going ambivalently.

The Doodly Advenchas of Keno vote incentive has updated to the next one so people reading the comments in archived form won't get it, but Mmmmmm, beef.
Yeah earlier I meant I am happy Poe wasn't completely rebooted as a character. It'll be fun to see how he handles going from having godlike powers to being a tiny helpless kitten. Do you think Poe will ever get magic back?

PS: I hope you feel better!

EDIT: I'm going to imagine the kittens were trying to hunt the bull and failed miserably.
Ugh I've got mucus disease again, time to spread it around the office.

I like poking the fourth wall where it meets with the passage of time. It'll only really tickle people reading as the story updates rather than going through the archives as a big chunk of entertainment, and possibly not even them, but I like how weird time is in comics, especially webcomics, so it's gonna keep happening.

Vote every day for new Advenchas of Keno doodlies!

? Poe's right there in kitten form, but he's kept his memory and personality if that's what you mean.
Happy birthday! There's still 90 minutes of the day where I am so I didn't completely miss it.

I'm going to disagree with Gardner. What about discovering adventure right at home? Or is "journey" synonymous with "adventure" in this case?

Also I'm glad Poe didn't revert back to a kitten.

It's my birthday! Had a nice party at the weekend, Paige made a nice roast beef, our friend Nora who's a good baker took a request for the birthday cake and made a lovely banana bread with lots of walnuts, and our friend Chris who spent ten years as a barman brought along stuff to make cocktails and a special unbreakable practise bottle to teach people some of the fancy cocktail juggling moves. Of course the key to a good party is inviting a bunch of people you like and who like each other, so I'm glad we have the prerequisites to have really good parties.

I didn't say earlier but the latest thing we're doing with the Top Web Comics vote incentives is little one-panel sketches of Keno's adventures with Murphy and Aya because they were still missing when the main story ran out of budget necessitating the new monochrome reboot. They're just yellow stickies and it's the same sort of loose format stuff as Yellow Sticky only with Keno and the gang. Rremly's not in them because he had to get home to Gwen (he's under a geas, that's canon for Catharsis).

Thanks Sam. We'll be getting rid of some characters in this book, but we'll be giving them endings. Jeff's death happened off-screen but it's not as if it didn't have an impact on people. One of the things I've been working on for at least the last couple of years has been strengthening the emotional core of the comic, and an experienced absence is something everyone's going to share sooner or later so that's built in now but doesn't affect every character evenly. Not the least of reasons being that the cats are all sociopaths (or, to put it another way: they're all cats :P) Last time we saw Gar he was passed out on Alice's couch looking very dishevelled at the beginning of Keno and Murphy's Unintentional Advencha.

We're focusing on the title character a bit more tightly in the current book though, keeping things from his viewpoint with occasional sidelines. Things Get Weird DID drag and I can't blame that ALL on the co-writer wanting desperately for the character originally loosely based on him to turn into a Mary Suepervillain :P

The human cast are still in position though. When Poe lost his magic Alice and Neko weren't there, but Lobster and Tony were and there's some fairly literal fallout from what happened. Eli's lost everything but was with someone kind when last we saw him, Sarah and Alice are good friends and Maisy lives with Sarah so we'll definitely be seeing her again.
All caught up!
It's taken the last three or four days (at maybe three hours per day) but I finished the entire archive.

I wanted to let you know that I greatly enjoyed nearly every form this comic has taken. It started with the life of Gar and his friends, with Neko providing commentary. We then shift to Neko and his family, eventually focusing on Keno's life. And then Things Got Weird, the McJefferstein story kind of dragged on and Neko's Imagination Land came in from left field, but I really enjoyed Poe's arc. In fact I"d say Poe became my favorite character (I'm on the edge of my seat to see what happens to him now that his magic has been drained).

I feel like I'm starting to ramble. I guess that's what happens when you absorb 14(!) years of a comic in just a few days.

Anyway I love the characters and their diverse personalities. Yeah the cats are all sociopaths, but you make it work. Are we going to find out what happened to Gar in the comic? I can't remember when we last saw him. And what about Eli? We left him homeless and his car was just blown up by Chaos-drunk Poe. Sarah also seems to have fallen to the wayside and Jeff is dead (which I understand is because his real life inspiration turned into an asshole). It seems the only humans are now Alice and Ellen, and apparently Taylor.

Before I end, I want to let you know I appreciate all the work and energy you put into this silly comic. I read every post you made about your good times and rough patches. Remeber that Neko the Kitty is bringing joy to people with every update, even if the don't comment to tell you. Years ago I was a silent reader, I commented exactly once even though NtK was one of my favorite webcomics. Then my computer crashed and I lost all my bookmarks. And I'm still rambling.

So yeah. Basically I love your work, I'm all caught up, and I'm looking forward to what comes next.
That last panel is beautiful

Batcat?
I just realized the blimp looks like a Batcat.
Nearly there
Woo! Just another year's worth of comics to get through and I'm all caught up!
Oh no Eli! I completely forgot about him and his situation!
Is his chest hair supposed to look like the Batman symbol?
Aww! I'm pretty sure this is the first time we see Poe being cute. Also I've spent the last few days reading through the entire archive, just two and a half more years to go!
