It's been a while hasn't it? Sorry about that. Here's a new comic for you to make it a bit better. This one has actually been half-done for ages. Just couldn't finish it ... but now I have.
I'm not sure when the next one will be, but consider this a step towards resumption of comic. In the past few weeks I have dusted off the website, cleaned out some spam and reconstructed the plot for this chapter. And now I've uploaded a comic. Progress! It was tougher than you might think.
I want to think all of you who have stuck around and especially those who have tried to contact us. I'm sorry that I have not answered you.
To those of you worried about me or Rune, here we are:
Alien not in the picture because I needed her to press the button, but she was smiling too.
Oh and for those of you who speak dutch and who remember the children's story we made for Rune's birthday last year, here's this year's version (sorry no english version):
So, what have we been up to? Well, I've often seemed to hit the metaphorical wall running. I've been pretty good at picking myself up and to keep going. Sometimes the wall wins. It's ok though. I'm alive. And I finally coloured that comic.
Sorry for delays in getting comic out. I've been in too dark a place mentally to work on it. I'll try to do it soon.
Update: It will be up thursday morning. We found an error in some previous strips and had to do some graphical retcons, causing delays.
Sorry about this, but monday's comic will be delayed by one or two days. I'm simply not feeling well enough mentally this weekend to finish it, and I have some video editing work I have to finish for a non-profit either way.
Excerpt from "The bestiary of The World That Is" by Wizard Ehm-Al.
When I created my lists of creatures to study, it was with some hesitation that I added Faerie Dragons, and who could blame me: if the stories were true, they were a cross between faeries and dragons (with all the obvious implications) and if they weren't, it would be a wild jabberwock chase. Personally, I believed the whole species a fabrication of somebody who misspelled “fiery dragon” and didn't think I'd ever encounter one.
Much could be said on the subject of the Hell's Pixies, although in truth if one removed all the curses the written material would be considerably shorter.
Note, please, that by curses I mean not merely vulgar language: so many malignant spells have been levelled at this group that should all of them have found their mark, the results would be, shall we say, unpleasant? Of course almost none of these curses worked, or at least worked for very long. The clue is in the name, after all: we are dealing with pixies.
