Page 232 will be a few days delayed still, due to computer problems, id est waiting for a new one to arrive. It's gonna be good, though.
As most of my regular readers have noticed, the comic updates have been, let's say sluggish the last few months. My intention is, and has always been to release two pages each week, as I did in the beginning. But for a long time now, I've been unable to deliver this. In fact I've been nowhere near it, often leaving it more than a week and beyond between updates.
There are a number of factors that have caused this, but mercifully, most of them appear to be temporary. But still, the situation leaves me with a difficult decision. So, I have good news and bad news. Bad news is that I'll call an official break from updates for a little bit. I'd call it a hiatus, but that's a big, scary word with alot of unsettling connotations for any webcomic. So here it is: No updates until between Christmas and New Year's at the earliest, early January at the latest.
Those are the bad news. Good news is that I'll be in a position to make a concerted push towards regular updates again come 2016, and I aim to take advantage. Though I can't guarantee anything, I'll be aiming for two updates a week again, but I'll make damn sure there will at least be one. October 20 means alot to me, and I want to return to the level of activity it once saw. The comic has always had a relatively small, but extremely dedicated following, and I want to reward you for the faith you've shown in me and my storytelling.
And I want to give you the best comic possible. So here's my promise to you: I will give everything I have to give you all the Oct20 you can handle, and keep throwing our heroes, whoever's left, into worse and worse strife.
The next page will be delayed a couple of days, since I took on a couple of side projects this past week. Shoudln't be too long.
The next page is taking a little longer, because I've spent far too much time preparing the pages that are to follow it. I've got something really specual planned, which takes alot more work than I thought it would. But when it's ready to roll out, I genuinely belive you all will like it, because I have to say, it's my favorite part of the comic so far. So stay tuned, we will be back very shortly.
Next page taking a bit longer than anticipated, due to time restraint and some emergency re-writes to seal potential plot holes. Will hopefully be up some time tomorrow.
I tried to have the next page ready today, but higher powers conspired against me. That means that I will not be able to finish the page until the coming weekend, forgoing my usual midweek update. But fret not, for my absence will not be for naught. I'm going on a 4 day research trip/vacation to Iceland, and I'll be taking my camera and my sketch book with me.
Get ready for more Icelandic horror upon my return.
Beautiful people. Sorry for not updating this week. Nothing really major got in the way, but still I never got the time to sit down and work on the next page. It will be coming monday, and to compensate you for my tardiness, I hope to have another one ready a day or two later as well. That's how much I love you.
The next page is done, but before I release it, I want to give my readers a fair warning. It is graphic, and there is blood.
October 20 is an adult comic, it is a horror comic and there will be violence and blood in it. It is not my intention for it to be exploitive or needlessly graphic, but I will show what I feel is neccesary. I promise that it will not turn into a slasher flick, and the heart of the story will always be the characters, the relations between them and what they go through. I hope that you will not be detered, and that you enjoy reading the story.
All this said, I think the next page is the best work I've done on this comic to date, and I'm really excited for you, the Beautiful People to see it.
