Alien is on vacation. There's a news post about it on the webcomic page.
Alien off to norway
Alien's off to her home country for two weeks in order to celebrate Christmas (yes you read that correctly, no don't ask me ... I'm clueless too).
We'll be running some fillers while she's gone but hopefully when she's back we'll finally be able to increase our update schedule to 2/3 per week again (but no promises yet).
i suspect things won't pick up again until Alien is home. That seems to be the pattern of the past, anyway. It's hard to coordinate a webcomic when the two people working on it aren't in the same locale together.
