You are not forgotten! And neither is the webcomic.
It has taken longer for the webcomic to return than I’d planned, so I wanted to give you an update to let you know what is going on.
Three things need completed before I can relaunch the comic:
- Build a large buffer of finished pages so that when I restart the comic, you can be sure I won’t be taking another break.
- Create a Patreon page for The Dreamer that will launch when the comic returns.
- Fix the bugs on our website so it can handle the increased traffic load of the relaunch.
Here’s where I’m at:
- I have the biggest buffer ever!
- I am feeling better (thank you to everyone who has been asking about my health) and I’ve been back at my drawing desk since this summer.
- Issue #1 of the Countdown to Culper is completely finished and colored.
- Issue #2 is written, blue-lined, lettered and yesterday I finished inking the first page.
- The Dreamer’s Patreon account is ready to launch. (I’m so excited.)
- I’m holding off on sharing it with you until the comic begins updating so no one is paying for content they aren’t receiving.
- Webmaster Mike was tackling the website issues head-on… and then he got a new job.
- It’s an exciting opportunity, but it is also bringing with it some big changes.
- These changes have to be the focus of his time and energy until things settle down.
Our current site is old and it isn’t running optimally. You might notice the comments and some of the pages are taking a long time to load. The site crashes regularly, and that’s with much lighter traffic since the comic is not updating.
We have to get these problems fixed before our regular web traffic starts up again, or it won’t be a good experience for anyone.
In the meantime, enjoy these previews of what’s ahead!
And if you miss me, check out this latest episode of my podcast, The Paper Wings Show. (I talk about The Dreamer’s Patreon plans in the intro.)
Mike and I are going to come up with a plan for the relaunch and when we have a date, I’ll announce it, and then we can Countdown to Culper… again.
Thanks for your patience!
