New chapter (FINALLY)! :D

Those of you who have read EC! since the beginning may be thinking "Uh... this isn't how it started before???"

Hello!
So I went a little radio silent there for a bit (whats new -____-)

How are you guys enjoying the new pages so far?
I love seeing your comments (even if I'm terrible at replying to them)
Thank you!
@Anthrax: Thanks!
More changes to come as pages continue to update :3
Thanks!
@H4RSHKN1GHT: I'm glad to hear people are taking the new pages so well :3

And one of my FAVORITE parts of the reboot, is MORE JJ PER PAGE SERVING
**warning, may cause excessive fan girl/guy/etc. screams
@Glite32: Oh don't worry, there will be bunk bed shenanigans >;D
WE'RE BAAAAAAACK!
Today is the day!
EC! is relaunching with ALL NEW pages!
Starting today, there will be 10 pages updated over the course of 5 days before going to a regular updating schedule.
The website is still being updated a bit, so for right now you'll have to wait to see all the extras and character profiles, but they are coming :3

Read the pages here: http://epicchaoswebcomic.com/

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

"Wait. Wasn't this already up to, like, chapter 5 or whatever?"

EC! has been a long running comic since 2010, but due to various issues over the years ranging from file corruption to artist disgruntled-ness about the art and story, the comic has been redone a few times (more than the creator is willing to admit >>;;; )

Last year, after deciding to print volume one, the creator of the series (unhappy with the current pages and their lack of significance with the overall story), decided to redo the comic ONE LAST TIME so that she can tell the story she wants to tell effectively. (Also the bonus of newer artwork ✧ヮ✧ )

So TL;DR: Newer pretty pages will better compliment the story that has evolved after a few years.

"So those of us who have been reading since DAY ONE, now have to wait ANOTHER 4 YEARS just to get back to CHAPTER 5 WHERE WE LEFT OFF BEFORE YOU DISAPPEARED???"

First off, thanks for sticking around long enough and reading the old terrible pages!
Second, DONT HURT MEEEEEE *runs away*
(ノಥAಥ)ノ

*ahem.* So because I feel ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE about going on hiatus last year, I spent my time building up a massive buffer, so that you guys can now have TWO BEAUTIFUL FULL COLOR PAGES A WEEK!
This will mean you guys will be back to chapter five in a little over a year!

However—

This may only stick up until chapter 4 or 5. We'll play it by ear, if I still have the really nice buffer and am able to keep producing pages, there's a chance it may stick.

"So, what's happening with volume 1?"

Currently I'm focusing solely on finishing the revisions for volume one, and the scripting and thumbnails for volume two ; and I'm balancing all of this with my day job, freelance work, and conventions (sleep is for people without deadlines).
There WILL BE a volume 1 with all new fancy artwork and stuff, but for right now, I've got a lot on my plate and will worry about it when I have everything done for volume one (maybe even volume 2???)

"Why would I want to reread the same story with newest artwork?"

Hold on there buddy!
Don't knock it till you try it!
It's not JUST the newer artwork, but there's also better writing, as I actually have a PLAN for this series now instead of 'I DRAW COMICS ABOUT BUFF DUDES AND SMOL CHICKS LOL'.
Look closely at the pages that are posted, there are things you may not recognize (some you may recognize), chapter 1 is the set up for what I have planned for the future of 'Epic Chaos!', so I've made sure to sneak a ton of stuff in >:D

And when chapter two shows up—
Be prepared :3

"My question wasn't answered?"

Send me your questions!
I'll be happy to answer!
Whether it's my artistic process, how pages are going, or whether it's about JJ's favorite hentai (I can answer that now: all of them.)
Yup!
@lemonpillows1234567890: And better than ever! Hoping I've done enough prep work to avoid going on hiatus again ;^;

It's great to be back! and I hope you guys enjoy the changes when you see them :3
Found chu!!!!
I found you Sano! and cute comic character!
