@Raomi: it was written by the character most likely to vandalize things. ;] and it may be his way of trying to get you to notice what is lurking right in front of you. thanks for asking!

@FatHobbit: wow, you picked the perfect time to hop aboard! thanks for reading :D
IMPORTANT NEWS: if you haven't heard already, Smackjeeves's new management is gutting all of the custom features we use Smackjeeves for, in order to become a webtoons clone. Read the full announcement here. This is, to put it mildly, devastating to the current userbase and to the diverse expression of comics on the web.

So where does that put Recoil? I will continue updating here as normal for now. I will be looking for a new place to host the comic so that I can bring my site design back. When I make a switch, I will make Recoil's sj url redirect to the new site. I will also post relevant links on social media. Here are all the places you can find me:
recoil discord serverpatreonrecoil twitterrecoil tumblrspire's twitterspire's tumblr

Smackjeeves is Recoil's home. I started the comic here in 2014. It's a punch to the gut that I now have to face the decision of moving, in order to keep Recoil's identity intact. But my mission is to deliver this story no matter what. So, wherever it ends up being hosted in the next 5 months, I hope to see all of you there.

Thank you for reading my comic.

I tried something for the first time- I colored this page entirely in CSP! I bought it for myself forever ago but never took the time to learn much of it, so I knew it was time to buckle down and really try it.

AND WE'RE BACK A MONTH EARLY! IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

I ended up knocking the prep work out of the park, so I started working on the buffer a whole month earlier than I thought I could. I can NOT tell you how pumped I am to drag you through what's to come.

Check out the inks for the cover here!
i mean, i also don't think i'd take it well if i found out parts of me were rewritten :v
it turns out i love malcolm bargo and i dont even know what his deal is yet
i Love that angry little face in panel 3. and that mauve is turning the panels mauve.

that's a really cool way to show the words working their magic! i'm really curious to find out why azure's been chucking these papers at him.

THAT'S THE END OF THE CHAPTER! and not only that... this is the end of Recoil Book 1! WOOOOOOOOO!!!

thanks so much for reading my comic. it really means a lot to me that so many of you have come along on this wild ride and made it to this milestone with me. we are now 33% of the way through Recoil, and i CANNOT WAIT to bring you what's next. >:]c

before we jump into chapter 6, i need a break! o(-< i won't be touching page production for a few weeks- but during that time, i'll be super busy making some other cool stuff. some you'll see soon, some you'll see.........next year. what could it meaaaaaan. here's what's coming:

•chapter 5 retrospective video
•new recoil playlist
•a mysterious and exciting announcement [!!!]
•progress updates while i prep c6 to Get Drawnt

all of these things will appear on my patreon first, before they become public, so feel free to follow it so that you know exactly when things get released! impatient people like me can also throw just a dollar in and that will unlock everything for you. there's already an extra little behind-the-scenes post on there that i didn't mention in the list above, which you can see here.

the plan is for chapter 6 to begin posting here in mid-december. that sounds so far away! that's why i wanted to make some extra goodies during the break to tide us all over. follow me on tumblr or twitter so that you know exactly when i pick a return date.

until then, see ya!
