The comic will be updating irregularly on Tuesdays. (For now, "irregularly" means rarely.)
Happy 2016! Chances are I won't get more comics done this year than I did last year, but I'm not planning to disappear completely just yet.
The plan is still, get the current storyline/chapter finished (that will be comic #1019), then sit down and finish the script (the whole script, to the story's end) and at that point, figure out what to do about the art. (Might be that by the time I get there, my kid is old enough to take over drawing duties...)
(Note: The provider that hosted the forum has disappeared without a trace. While I have backups of the forum, I don't currently have the resources to set it up again somewhere else. The RSS feed also is currently broken, and I don't know when I'll get around to fixing it. In the meantime, by far the best way that I know of to keep track of updates is Piperka, check it out!)
