UTC will be on break until March 22. This is for a few reasons. First and foremost, now that the major scene of this chapter is finished, I’d like to take some time to review the script for the final 6 pages of Chapter 11. There is a robust epilogue planned, some of which I wrote as far back as three years ago. (The final page has been almost totally unchanged since then; I quite like it!)
But there are a few sticking points that have cropped up as I’ve finished the climax. I won’t get into the nitty-gritty right now, but I have some concerns about the future of the comic that, depending on the solutions I decide to go with, will directly affect things in the epilogue. So I need to make those decisions BEFORE making the next few pages.
Add to that the coincidental timing of an out-of-town vacation, and that’s why I’m putting a pause on the comic. There is just too much riding on this to make a hasty decision. I’m hoping the time away will provide some fresh insight, also.
So, keep the candle burning, my faithful readers! See you in two weeks!
I’ve had slight schedule changes recently and I’m finding it’s harder to get pages done early in the week. I’ve decided to shift updates to Fridays. Early Access contributors on Patreon will receive the updates on Thursdays between 12am and 4am (U.S. Eastern).
So the bottom half of Page 243 will arrive here this Friday, Feb. 15.
This site uses Disqus for its comments section. Recently Disqus started running ads by default. These ads appeared above and below each page’s comments section. I do not know when they started appearing; I only noticed them today.
The content of the ads is the same type of substandard clickbait seen around the web. I abhor clickbait and will never, ever allow ads like that on this website.
I’m sorry these ads appeared here. I’ve taken action to remove them. The website is currently ad-free, as it has been for a couple of years now. If you continue to spot clickbait on any of these pages, please take a screengrab and notify me either by commenting to this post or using the e-mail link in the nav bar above.
Hey there, faithful fans!
UTC’s 11th anniversary was yesterday. Can you believe it? 235 colored pages in 11 years.
There’s good cause to celebrate, though. For the first time in a very long while, I turned around a new page in just one week! It felt like the least I could do for this old comic, and all of you. Come back here tomorrow at 1:00 pm U.S. Eastern time for the next update.
The true release date is June 13, this Wednesday. The page will be viewable on Patreon for Early Access backers tomorrow. Another comic DID update on time today, and that is the final page of Zebra Girl, a very long-running webcomic by my friend Joe England, and one of the inspirations for UTC. If you haven’t discovered this series yet, you should really check it out. Congrats, Joe!
It’s been a while, as usual. I want to give you an update so you’re not continuing to wonder when the next page is coming. The date for Page 234 is tentatively June 11. I have a long trip coming up, and despite wanting to finish it before leaving, it came down to a few panels being left unfinished. If anything changes, I’ll be sure to amend this update. Take care, everyone, and thank you!
