A Rant on Webcomics
I keep checking some of my favorite webcomics, and I see more and more slowly slipping into long-hiatuses or even non-existences. It’s a sad thing to see the passage of time slowly taking away the things we enjoy so much. While others start up and die quickly, many have stood the test and have proven themselves to the public, only to be stopped by the creator/author/writer/etc skipping an update, then two, or three, then a week, a month, a year goes by and no updates.
Every so often I chat with other webcomic artists, who tell me there reasons for not updating, “I have work”, “I can’t find the time.”, “I don’t have the energy.”, “I’m depressed.” All valid reasons to delay updates, after all, the comics are a hobby, not a job for many of us. And the whole time in the back of my head I’m thinking “Really??… If I can be in a WAR zone and keep updating 2 webcomics (even though the updates schedules may be delayed), you can’t update one once in a while? or at least buckle down and make a conclusions for the fans?
Though I get writers block and delayed at times for various reasons, I’m glad that you haven’t given up on me, because despite how busy I get, or where I am, I plead to keep both ‘I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle’ and SailorSun.org going as best as I can, till they are concluded and not before.
