Hey pal. I'm glad to hear we can be an inspiration to you and your series.
You know, I'm going to be super honest. This is all going to come from my heart.
I don't really read comic series anymore. I mean. To be super true to you this place doesn't spike my interest like it did back in the "glory days".
I remember when this forum was booming with life. New topics left and right almost every day. Co working authors. Multi-Author-Series. All that good stuff.
Though like anything it had to end. Many comic makers left here. Be it life or loss of interest. Dark709 left. How many folks expected that?
At some point in our lives we have to move on and abandon what we've worked hard on. We need to move onto new things.
Just like how one day I know Terton and I must part ways.
I know I can never make comics forever. I have to advance in my future. I'm working on a Saxxy entry for next year, actually.
But hey. If you want to re-boot your work? Go for it. Do it. Live a little and do that series you've got in your mind. I cannot guarantee that you will find success. I can guarantee that the longer you go on the more people will start to notice you. People will take about you. Bad talks. Good talks. All forms of talks.
But you KEEP GOING. You stop when you're ready to stop. Sometimes you got to get those ideas in your head out on the blank canvas of paint.
I did comics for seven/eight years. It wears you down, it does. But you can't give up because of a lack of activity. You end your work the proper way. You end your story the way you want to. Reject what the others say about you and your work. Don't let them make FUN OF YOU, MOCK YOU or anything. Save everything they say about you and be ready to send that report to the staff.
The point is. Don't let anything stop your drive to create. Even if it doesn't last long. You are the author, after all.
Ahem, anyway. I might make my next comic the Halloween comic. Let’s just say I got something horrific in mind based on Terton’s.. interest that confronts mine.
