4 pages today?

Journal Entry: Thu May 1, 2014, 6:19 AM
I'll be away for a little bit, and I won't be always able to upload at the same time as I usually do so I was considering putting the remaining pages up today.

It should be said that the next part of the story after these four pages will have more to do with non GG and Gradius issues lol. I just don't want to leave you hanging, and, once I return back home, I will have to start up on normal work again as I have exhausted my stored up money to work on this project.

With the new work I'll be doing I will still try to get some more pages done as I want to have at least 100 pages this year. I might open for commissions in the summer and as  special note, i do have a plan to print that map out in full poster size for next year once I have filled it with all your names!

If you didn't get in on the action before, put your name below and I will get it in there some how.

This story is in no way being abandonned, but without money to feed the family I have to work on normal stuff. Understand I have taken 2 full months off of work with no pay which is a huge investment! A lot of other factors came into play hindering the finishing of more pages, but that's the way it goes.

I promised my family a vacation years back, and have neglected it, so now things have worked out where we can go to Japan for a few weeks since we have family there. Also once I get back I have to finish renovating and then we have to search for a home.

Imight go to San Diego, but it's in Ramadan, so i want to stay close to home.

So again, thank you thank you thank you, for your support, it means a lot to me, and i promise I will try not to make this thing typical and predictable. I read your comments very carefully, and will take them into consideration  for the next batch of pages I draw.

The whole story is not a love triangle, but it makes things exciting so i spent some time on it. After these four pages we will open up some new possibilities and get some closure on other issues as well.

This 4 pages in one day is only because I am leaving to Japan tomorrow and I know I will neglect the internet while there.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

Assalamu Alaikum, hope you have a good time on vacation. Man it has been awesome rolling your work all these years, I remember I used to check up on your art way before I had an account, keep up the good work. If you are still taking names maybe could add my name somewhere, Samad.

I must admit I am a bit jealous of your ability to work on this comic, especially since it is a personal project that shows your love for the hobby, your fans, and the world you have created in 5c. I've also wanted to work on my own comic for a very long time but it is a huge commitment that takes a lot of skill, time management and passion, just another reason to admire what you're doing here. Being said that, I hope you have an awesome trip and wish you and the family the best

Thanks a lot!

It was a huge commitment and a lot of planning to make sure I had enough money to just stop work altogether with a family in tow. The world you see now is after about 5 or 6 attempts. It would be interesting if I showed the progress from map to map and why I changed it.

I want to do a fan sketch of your pink haired character because I like her fashion.

That'd be soooooOOO cool, Omar.
Expect me to reciprocate the gesture (perfect chance to slip some more automotive art in my gallery? maybe... ) :9
hope you're having a blast over there in Japan! :wave:
