    nope, he's right

    the cornelius/stripper storyline was funny until they left Larry Borgioni's Cheetah Room

    that said, who's down for a trip to Larry Borgioni's Bubble Lounge?

    Achewood State of the Union, 1/2009
    Dear Friends of the Library,

    They say that the devil you don't know is worse than the devil you do. In that same spirit, I posit that the Achewood State of the Union update which you can read is better than the one which you can't.

    If you've been following Achewood in any capacity for the last year, you've noticed changes afoot. Most particularly, I'm sure you've noticed that the strip itself, always the flagship of the enterprise, has run less frequently.

    I want to apologize for that. After seven full and happy years, though, production of the strip has had to find space for itself among other projects. Book development, animation development, and most recently, the rapid relocation of my little family to another state. That's the big killer. We lived in Silicon Valley until today. Until three weeks ago, we thought we were going to live here forever. It's a complicated story involving eminent domain, the stewardship of the American financial continuum, and a poisonous dog named Nasturtium. I'll tell you about it sometime.

    There's no way for me to do good work while taking care of my family and all of our interests during this move. You would see scabrous comics—literally injurious to the eyes—anxiously uploaded from a laptop in a stall at the Mount Shasta Bathe-n-Shat. You would see strips about crying. You would see shakily-drawn strips about cantaloupes with wedges missing, in a half-hearted attempt to ape that whole Shel Silverstein thing. It would be wrong.

    I expect this official strip hiatus will last about two weeks. I hate not being able to produce it for your entertainment, but I would hate more to rush the work and injure the archives for the sake of quantity. Thank you for your patience and dedication, and please find a home for us in your RSS feed aggregator.

    Sincerely,
    Chris Onstad

    PS: All orders are being fulfilled, and there will still be Fanflow premium content during this time. Ain't nobody gonna get burned on this deal.

    honestly, it sounds like a hiatus is the best thing for him right now

    and the "animation development" has me quite intrigued

    I hope Onstad knows what he's doing.

    The free strip is how you get people to show up at your website in the first place. Is he going to be surprised when sales drop during these two weeks?

    oh okay then

    See I figured the premium stuff was actually worth something but that just sounds pointless. More pointless then subscribing to a fucking premium webcomic feed in the first place, actually.
