style, gestures, dialogue, plot, EVERYTHING! this is one smashing comic, and I'm most definitely looking forward to more :)
Blown away already by the art, pacing, dialogue, EVERYTHING. Can't wait for more!

y-your STYLE <3 <3 <3
Forget it. I am officially giving up on updating on a frequent, regular basis. There is no hope; all promises are empty. Dear John will only be updated when I feel like it and/or have the time.

Time IS an issue now though. College requires much more work than I expected, but I will try to draw pages on the side.

Also, I got a new MacBook Pro, and tablet connection is an entirely new world on this. I have working pressure sensitivity for the first time! Also, the lines are super smooth. I lost that pixelated sort of look my lines tended to have; I am not sure how I feel about this.

And as always, sorry for the wait. :/

ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh why have I not realized you have a webcomic D:

It's absolutely gorgeous! I love your style and the pacing and your paneling so muchhhhhh

Thanks to all of you that stopped by at AX! It was good to see you :]
oh dear lord
There are a lot of things that could be said here, but first off, I'd like to start with:

Hey. It's been a while.

I'm sorry this hiatus has been ridiculously long, but I have to say that I'm so ridiculously flattered that there are those of you who haven't given up on this comic, who've actually enjoyed it enough to come checking for an update and all. Thank you so much.

I'm going to try and pick this up again, even though photoshop and I are not really on speaking terms. Updates won't be very frequent this month because I'm currently working on prints for Anime Expo (if you're going to be there, drop by Artist Alley and say hi! I'd love to meet you :D), but I'm not ready to give up on Dear John just yet.

So yeah, here we go again.
my bad :(
God everyone I'm so sorry for not having updated this. Rest assured though, dear john is not dead. the next page is in the works and will be posted hopefully as soon as possible!

No, in all seriousness, I'm so sorry for the lack of updates. I didn't actually want to declare a hiatus because I thought I'd be able to find time to draw a page, but I haven't been able to and it doesn't look like that's going to be changing in the near future. I should be writing a paper as I type this.

Hopefully this won't be long. The next real chance I have to draw another page, I'll jump on it faster than a pre-pubescent girl on the Twilight bandwagon. Rest assured, DEAR JOHN will live again!
aww thanks you guys <3

@Yunie - LOL didn't notice the typo. I'll fix it now haha thanks
as for the weapon, I kind of thought it looked like a retarded leaf/christmas tree =/
this took me way longer than it should have.

I never realized how difficult action scenes would be to draw :/
++sound effects are HARD.
my first choice is Brown which I'm in ABSOLUTE LOVE WITH. It's the only school that'll break my heart D:

@fishuu - OH WAIT NO ahaha when you said U of C, I immediately thought of University of California OTL but I'm still applying to U.Chicago ahaha
+ 15 schools is pretty overkill haha but it's mainly like 3 UCs (1 application), RISD (which I will go to only if I get in the Brown-RISD dual program which only accepts 20 people D:) and a bunch where I'm like "hey, you're a school I'm vaguely interested in, and you don't require a supplement to the common app so WHY NOT"

@Enzie - lol if I counted schools as those I have a chance of getting into, I have like 5 schools ahaha

PS - EXPLAINED ABOVE. geesh i need to get on MSN so we can talk AX plans D:

@E - NOT YOU TOO. this whole shipping thing is getting out of control >:[
thanks! the gunpowdery stuff is actually the tobacco from inside the cigarette that Mark snaps in panel 3. guess that wasn't clear haha sorry!
@whistleonwild - woaah carnegie GOOD LUCK TO YOU TOO! YEAH '09!

@fishuu - ahaha oh man U of C - I don't want to apply to most of them but I'm kind of expected to since, you know, I live here D:

@Enzie - NO. *shoots you*
LOL YAY BROWN I'm completely wasting my parents' money. I'm applying to like 15 schools orz
lol I just realized that the page before, they're ducking under a barrage of projectiles, not just one OTL
so I've decided that this agent's name is Claire, after my friend who has taken a liking to him after his grand total of 2 panels.

It's okay. It's not my first choice school. If it were, IT WOULD'VE BEEN WAR. DDDD:
you always have the coolest textures/effects/angles in everything. I'm jealous D:

lol hiatus update. not that i'm complaining.
Thanks for the compliments everyone!

@Enzie - WHAT NO.

@daikonkid - human shield. read my mind. look for it in the next few pages xD
bad news: my laptop crashed.
good news: I got a new laptop!
bad news: the connection between my tablet and my laptop is different, so I have to basically relearn how to draw with a tablet all over again. Hence Mark's rape face down in panel 5 and the lack of backgrounds and the general crappines and the lateness, for all of which I apologize.

Updates will generally be slow because of school and college apps WHICH I AM ACTUALLY GETTING SERIOUS ABOUT. seriously, is open to the Stanford supplement right now on another tab.
