So I guess 'zombie' movies are still a thing in a way 8T
Hmm...

Ah'll sithee later.
When Atty awakens after he finally gets to sleep he's gunna wonder if today was just one giant fever dream.

As promised, I made a Q&A video for Mokepon's 10th Anniversay last week! You can find it here. There's cake. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKhHQpZuE7U

Ah'll sithee later.
Just so you guys know, I now have a Discord! The links at the top in the menu. This comic may be nearly finished, but if you'd like to talk about it or anything else, drop on by ^^

Ah'll sithee later.

You remember all that stuff I said before about not doing too many horizontal panels or else the page would look stupid? Sometimes you don't give a damn cuz the page is gunna be stupid either way lol.

We realized that coming up is Mokepon's 10th anniversary! Holy cow. To celebrate, I'm going to be recording a Q&A about the comic (the story, how it's made, anything!). If you'd like to ask a question, either drop it in the Q&A channel in my discord, or send it to me in a PM here on Smackjeeves =D

I'm also going to be selling at RTX London this coming weekend, and Chester Comic Con the weekend after that. If you're going too, hope to see you there ^^

@Brackass: Actually, I was really bothered by that line by Kylo Ren, because it got in the way of what I wanted to write here lol. The wording's not exactly the same or anything but it's similar enough for the potential meaning to be coloured by it. Annoying 8T I decided not to change it in the end though cuzza reasons.
@The_mad_one: What's not to be happy about 8D

So I decided that like many other webcomics, I ought to start a Discord server! Not only as a place to talk about whatever, but also a place where I can easily post art for Patrons. I never much enjoyed Patreon's system for sharing content, which is why I stopped, but now instead there's a patreon tier to access the wips and previews channel =) The link's in the menu bar if you're interested!

@Ghost: It's okay! I might've been a bit sensitive because when it comes to webcomics, a lot of people bring up slow updates because they feel entitled to more and just wanna complain, rather than just being curious about the process. Sorry about being snippy with you.
@Guest: Thankyou, I do appreciate the offer, but I don't think I could consistently make through Patreon doing comics what I can make from my other work. I worked that way for some time, but while I was doing okay and was thankful for what people were giving me, I was only really scraping by, so I made the decision to take down the extra update rewards on Patreon so that I could focus on work that would get me somewhere. And fortunately, that has worked out very well for me!

Comics in general are hard to make much money from despite the vast amount of time and work that goes into them, and unless someone hits it big they tend to be more a labor of love than anything. Comics are still my passion but I've got to be practical. In an ideal future I'll get myself into a position where I'm comfortable and CAN do comics fully for a living, but it may take a while. I hope that clears things up.
@Ghost: I wanna introduce you to this concept where a lot of people have to work for a living and have very little free time. It's sweeping the nation. I ain't getting paid for this what the people who work on The Walking Dead are.
Credit to my sis, she came up with Articus.

@Guest: Weird you should ask, I almost said in the authors comment... Whenever anyone's confessed their love to me, I've pretty much always just ended up wearing the same expression that Chris is wearing lol.
@Spirit of Water: I don't mind technical questions at all! There's a couple of reasons that the panel got extended off the end of the page like that, but they're not particularly deep ones in this case. For one, I often like to have a panel that extends off the page 'lead in' and one 'lead out'. I do this a lot, it looks nice to me and makes a nice path to read the page with. Another reason is because I had more in that panel that needed to be shown, so having a taller panel worked. Finally, having the panel extend just looked nicer next to the closed panel to the left of it. Adds a lil' more visual interest.

There's a lot of 'rules' comic artists will come up with for their paneling. It's fun, because different artists will do certain things for totally different reasons, and some will do things other artists would NEVER do. All because, while there are a lot of pieces of advice that are good for everyone, there's a lot of things that come down to your gut, and your personal language for telling a story. There's a lot to be controlled when it comes to comics, concerning things such as leading the eye, clarity, controlling the passage of time, etc, and everyone's got their own ways of doing it :3
