Since I seem to have picked up some new readers (and in pity for my old ones, who have been so patient), the deal at the moment: I dearly love this comic, but I have a three-year-old daughter and a very demanding day job, the latter of which is also going through a pre-audit crunch at the moment. The comic is thus down to once-a-week updates on Tuesdays. I will try my best to get it back to twice a week soon, but I'm trying to build up an actual buffer first -- to avoid the cycle of the past, oh, year or two wherein I triumphantly return to twice a week only to be blindsided by the next new crisis. (Probably my health. I haven't had a health issue for, oh, a good month or three, I must be due!)
In the meantime, why not check out the Spiderforest Comic of the Week, the fantastic What It Takes!
The world ended six years ago. Colbey is part of the three percent of humanity that survived, but she's too busy to feel lucky. Busy continuing to survive in a world where you can take nothing for granted, not even your next meal or a safe place to sleep. Busy trying to sift the wreckage of a lost world for the fiancee she's grimly convinced has survived. Busy dodging the gangs and disfunctional dictatorships while tracking down rumors of the one place civilization is said to have survived... a City in a Place whose nature seems increasingly tangled in the fate of the man she lost....
What It Takes is a gritty post-apocolyptic comic with a gutsy, tough, and believable heroine and a dose of dark humor. And, unsurprisingly, a favorite of mine. If you haven't already found this one, then go check it out!
