So! It’s June 17th! The day I said I’d be back from my writing break, ready to start posting weekly Family Man pages again.
I won’t waste space: no, the comic isn’t back yet. Taking a month off updates to focus on scriptwriting has been simultaneously fruitful (progress!) and frustrating (things I still need to work out!). The point of the break was to firm up enough story details that I felt comfortable plowing ahead with new art.
I’m not there yet.
No, this isn’t a dreaded “hiatus”; I’m not taking a vacation, or stepping away from the story, or landing a fancier dayjob. This is my primary project and I want to give it the attention it deserves. My goal has always been to produce a self-contained novel, rather than a weekly free-content web serial. So: I’m going to deliver you a lovely novel. And you will see new pages from it when I know that they’re the right pages, not just the pages I can put up by Friday.
New pages will return September 21st. If I need more time, I’ll take it, but I’ll be sure to update you on my progress along the way. I really miss the little weekly lift of hearing from you all about a new page, and I very much look forward to seeing you all again soon.
