Yes! Book Six has a launch date, and it's March 30th! Thank you deeply to everyone who's sent encouragement and good thoughts, and you know, thanks also to the folks who've kept the negativity and unhelpful comments to themselves. I'm not even being facetious, it's appreciated. Some of the messages I've been sent, through comments on the News post, Facecult messages, Tweeties, and emails. Thanks.

We're nearly finished the first draft script, and I should be making pages again in early February. More on that as it develops, and maybe even some sneak peekery. Also, guest comic Snapshots will be preceding the beginning of Book Six, and I really like what I've seen so far. Look forward to it!


ALSO! More information on the events where we'll be appearing this season, links below! There will be more to come as their confirmed. Come out to say hi!

Comment on Patrick's Angry Letter #674 of Pictures of You

A little misandry from me to whomever it may apply. I'm not calling anyone in particular, but if you hear your name...

I'm not sure at this point how many people in my sphere of influence are an active problem in the "But I'm A Nice Guy" camp, though, so maybe this is just a laugh for those who aren't. Really, though, if you're a guy, or a white people, or heterosexual, or Christian, and you hear someone talking about your particular group, instead of jumping to defend your "side" I would ask you to stop, listen, think, consider, ask for more details, and allow for the possibility that they're saying it for reasons other than hating you.

If you're confused about what's going on with the updates, check our News section.

@Onyxlight: Strangely, of all the long-form projects I've developed, the only two that have made it into comic form so far are also the only ones that feature chess in them. Maybe if I start featuring chess in all of them, they'll all get made!

Welcome to 2015.
Comment on Book Six Teaser of Pictures of You

This is where I always fall short trying to find the words.

Book Five was a difficult book, as I suppose they've all been, but this time for different reasons. The obvious reason was sensitive subject matter. It was important to me that I portray the issues in Bye Bye Baby as honestly as I could do. I suppose it would always be in the eye of the beholder whether I succeeded, and I'm sure there will always be people who think I succeeded as well as those who think I failed.

Which leads straight into the second difficulty of this book, the lack of comments. From way back, I knew comments would be a problem in this volume of Pictures of You, and with the inflammation that happened during Book Four's relatively benign storyline, it was clear that the comments would have to be disabled for Bye Bye Baby.

I won't lie, I've missed the comments. I've missed them since the day I turned them off. I didn't always like them, but it was a connection with the readers I enjoyed. People still send emails and messages through Facecult and The Tweety, though, and that's been the methadone that keeps me going. I think most folks out there, and the messages I received on the issue bear this out, understand why the comments were disabled. Though most people can be reasonable even if unwavering on this particular topic, no matter which opinion you hold, there are those who simply cannot refrain from using it as a cudgel. That just wasn't going to happen on my site.

I have to say thank you to everyone who's been reaching out to me during Book Five, despite the extra steps required, to send me support, encouragement, and compliments. The insults have been mercifully few. Thank you also to those who've sent us patronage (Ryan, I couldn't find your email to say THANK YOU!) and to the fantastic sisters who keep sending Canadian coffee to this grateful expat. Thank you to those who've commissioned us, supported our funding drives (sometimes astonishingly so,) and ordered merch so we can keep the lights on in the studio. Thanks to my wife Rori! for her invaluable help as an editor and cheerleader, I am in her debt forever. And thanks to everyone who is still reading our little play.

So now we're halfway through the series (maybe a little more than half by raw page count.) I'm excited to get into Book Six, The Romantic Junkies, and I'll talk a little on that in a few days, and some news that may not be so good. I'd say more now, but I'm still figuring out the details. We will not be posting any other pages this week, but will be back on Monday with WORDS and perhaps PICTURES. Bear with me, I'm not very bright.

Chapter 15 ends. Book Five ends.
So we wrap up Pictures of You Book Five, Bye Bye Baby. I'll have a little afterword on Monday, some thank yous, and a word or two about what happens next as we look forward to Book Six.
