@Ara: Thank you so much! It's our first child, so both the hubby and I are very excited, but we're also realistic about how draining it's going to be XD
This isn't an easy choice to make, BUT....
So, probably a lot of you don't even know this unless you follow my personal blogs, but I am presently 7 months pregnant, and the exhaustion has finally caught up to me in a way that I can't really ignore it. My maternity leave starts at my day job in less than a month, but I think I need to just take a full on break, including my comic work, for a while.

I'm unsure how long of a break I'll be taking, and I will probably work out a mailing list? Or something? So, as soon as I'm back into the swing of things, you will all know. This isn't a decision I make easily, after all, this is Under the Dead Skies' 5th year and I still have so much more story and so many more heartstrings to tug, so don't think I will give up on this project too easily <3

For those on my Patreon, I will still be making updates as I'm able to make them! Your guys' content will be even more exclusive now, and when I come back I'll have a good buffer, so hopefully I won't need to miss an update again for a looooong time.

If you want to keep up with my goings on, I'll still be on Tumblr and Twitter fairly regularly (@moonjellybeans on both). I still have zine submissions I owe, and those will be finished by their deadlines <3

You guys are all amazing and I can't tell you how much your continued support means to me~ Thank you so much for sticking with me during this spotty year, and I WILL be back as soon as I am able to keep a regular schedule again!
I had fun with all the blue.

@lunabob: Thank you! We really appreciate that. It's not the news we were expecting from a routine check-up, that's for sure, but he's gained his weight back and is at least feeling better than he was. We just have to be realistic if his health takes a nose dive. ;-;

I'm glad you like it! I wasn't sure if it was going to work, but I ended up really liking the effect it had for this sequence~!
They say...
The worst thing you can do is split up...

Thanks for being patient again guys. It was such a stressful week the last week. My cat is doing better, but the end result is that he does have kidney lymphoma but we caught it early enough that we can at least prevent it from getting worse for a while.

@Zanar_Naryon: Yes, at this point it has not been able to travel overseas~
@Zanar_Naryon: No, no, don't ever feel bad about that!

That's a good point, I might just keep it to the cursing in future pages~
@Zanar_Naryon: I would say there's probably some central parts that have probably been hit, but since most of Canada's population is Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal those places have more beefed up security than central Canada.
@Zanar_Naryon: These parts were, I started in 2012, and right before I was gonna drop my pages on the site, the first Last of Us trailer came out. I panicked about it for a while, but decided to keep going anyways~ XD
@Zanar_Naryon: YES! He's from Norway (Stavanger to be exact!). My dad's side of the family is from there!

I think you're the first Norwegian person to comment XD
@Zanar_Naryon: EXACTLY!! Would anyone want to try and organize a mob of panicky people? Get people outta there, then explanations when people are safe!
@Kitwillan: Thank you! It's been a challenge doing this whole sequence in first person, but I'm really happy with how it's been turning out so far!
@Guest: I'm very happy it's having an impact! This is my first time trying a first person perspective for a comic!
I hope I did that teary eyed effect okay! It was fun playing around with it XD

I did so much fiddling with this page, but I'm pretty dang happy with how it turned out! I hope you guys are enjoying this perspective!

I am so sorry I didn't get this posted this morning, but I had to run errands on my way up to the convention.

AS MENTIONED, this is my last convention for the season so if you're in Calgary and going to Otafest, this is the last chance you have this year to get books from me in person!

I'm at table A66 so come see me!

After the convention we should be back on schedule as normal!
Sorry for the lack of page this week, but I am DETERMINED to get this one mini-zine finished before Otafest, so I have been burning a lot of midnight oil!!

But Otafest is my LAST convention this year, so this is your last chance to get copies of Under the Dead Skies from me in person for 2017! I am still looking at online venues to sell my books, but when that is ready to go, of course, I shall make a formal announcement!

As always thanks for your patience, I know this year has been rocky for updates, but seeing how many of y'all still keep coming back to support me fills me with determination!
I spent the bulk of working on this page mislabeling it as page 226 >.<
I don't even know what day it is half the time lol

I am having a blast doing this whole dream sequence thing. So much fun! Also, the Panel One Comic Creators Festival was FANTASTIC! Ughhh just always a fun time, and I'm so glad I got to go again this year.

Next convention is Otafest, so look for me there!
