It figures that when I start announcing update dates ahead of time, things immediately go off-schedule. I will not be making these sorts of announcements a regular thing after all.
The next page will be up before the end of the month, but it will definitely not be Sunday as originally planned. Sorry for getting everyone’s hopes up. The comic will continue on a twice-per-month schedule but it could be any two days during the month, not necessarily evenly paced. I’m dead-set on finishing “Class Warfare.”
Page 225 of UTC will be posted this Sunday. I’m not sure if Sundays are going to become the default days for updates. I’m just trying to post pages as they’re getting done and right now the best time to work on them is the later half of the week.
See you then!
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you don’t need me to tell you that 2016 was a rough year. I hope you all fared it well. UTC obviously suffered, but it’s finally beginning to pick back up.
Right now I’m targeting a minimum of two updates per month. I’m already well into work on Page 223 and it will be up before Christmas. I’m going to hold to that pace for the beginning of 2017, and if there are opportunities to make extra pages to get the series back to a once-per-week schedule, I’m going to take them. My first priority after new pages is to finish the extra content for the long, LONG overdue Phase Two graphic novel.
That’s everything for now. I wish you have a great holiday season and a happy new year!
I’m pleased to announce that UTC is officially rolling again! I’ll post a revised Page 217 on Saturday. Updates will not be on a set schedule for the time being, but you will be seeing more pages over the coming weeks.
And with this update comes the relaunch of the Patreon campaign! That will also be coming on Saturday. Patrons who did not cancel their pledges before the suspension of the campaign last year will need to login to Patreon and modify/remove their pledge if they so wish. I’ll of course be notifying everyone this concerns directly on the day of the relaunch.
More news to come! See you Saturday.
Major announcement. Unfortunately probably not a very shocking one to those who have been reading since 2008, and had likely become suspicious after last week’s page updated a day later than it was supposed to.
The long and the short of it is that UTC is going back on hiatus, for an indefinite period of time. The simplest explanation for this is that I realized I’m just not ready to get the series started again. It was a mistake to promise a return date back when the hiatus started in June, when I frankly had no idea at the time what my living situation, employment, and confidence as an artist would be in the fall.
As you know, I spent the summer trying to evolve my art style, which is most evident in the Rayna on the River strips. However, in struggling with the new UTC pages, it’s become clear that my evolution hasn’t yielded the results I’ve aimed for. Not yet, at least. I need to take more time to work on my artistic development before I can continue with any ongoing comic projects.
I am not, repeat, NOT going to give up on UTC. I have scripts and a solid goal. What I lack is the ability to execute it.
This is going to be just like all the other hiatuses: long, unfair, and thankfully, finite.
Thank you for your patience. See you in 2016. Until then, keep changing for the better as I do the same!
