    ...

    This is indeed my last update for GWS. To me, it doesn't feel like it is. It hasn't sunk in for me yet, and I'm sure it won't for a few days. I rarely mourn a loved one's death when I catch word of it; it never hits me until I'm expecting the deceased to pop out of a door, or be present at a party, and they never come.

    My sleep-deprived mind isn't allowing me to be eloquent, but I do have something important to say: Thank you. I'd be lying if I said I would have never created the strip if it weren't for all of you - I started GWS for the love of it, loved the characters so much I had to let them play, and I would have continued to create it if it hadn't become a ten-year-long career, let alone a career at all - but it wouldn't have been as fun, as rewarding, as consistent (thank you, smartie-pants readers who remember all the details that I got wrong), or remotely possible to sustain five days a week and unwrap more of the story, without you.

    I receive so much generous gratitude from the readers I meet, claiming that I give you a comic "for free." Economics 101: there is no free lunch. You may not know it, but every time you've shared this strip with friends, added a link to it from your website, come to a convention to see me, even just visited the website regularly, any merchandise you've bought or donations you've sent, are the only reason I've been able to share as much of the story as I have.

    GWS is as much yours as it is mine.

    I childishly wanted to end the strip on a significant number - 2000 to make it even, or 2004 (the year the comic started), or 2069 (hurrr) - and it landed on 2008. Assuming I have my dates right, it's the perfect number to end on. 2007 was the year that I asked my very kind readers for help paying my [ridiculously cheap] monthly bills so that I could afford to drop all my other freelance work and start updating GWS five times a week. 2008 was the year the donations fizzled out (I was too chicken to start asking again), and I had to put on Big Girl Pants and learn how to make GWS a legit full-time job without digitally panhandling. I could have dropped back down to three times a week and gone back to splitting my focus with other paying projects, but I didn't want to. I wanted to see what Hazel and Jamie and everyone was doing five times a week, at minimum. I swear to god if I could have updated twice a day, I would have.

    I doubt this is the last you'll see of GWS. Even though they're running around in my head going on journeys and throwing parties and foolishly drinking too much and having their hearts broken and teased and fulfilled, I'll miss sharing Hazel and Jamie and Maureen and Jameson and Clarice and Thea and everyone else so much that I can't imagine keeping them to myself forever. They'll burst out eventually and come back with stories to tell you.

    In the meantime, if you miss them, Monday begins a new tradition of sharing the old strips one by one - from beginning to, apparently, #2008 - in full color, thanks to Laeluu (if you were wondering why you haven't seen her signature on the last several dozen strips, it's because she's been hard at work preparing the first 160 strips for the next few months!). I'll be adding hover text to all the strips that didn't have it, and a blog post nearly every day with a mix of relevant commentary and what's-on-my-drawing-board updates, and did I mention they'll be in color? THEY'LL BE IN COLOR.

    I hope you'll continue to visit here - in part because I want you to enjoy the stellar job Laeluu is doing on the old strips, and in part because I want to re-read them all with you. But also in part because I've grown to love this little community that's formed around the strip, and I'd love to keep seeing your faces. (Um, avatars.)

    Well, this was the opposite of brief, and now the sun's shining straight on my pillow and it's nearly 9. Let's see if I can still get some shut-eye. Maybe I'll get to read the next strip in my dreams.

    As usual, there are like a billion amazing things I want to post about in that Paranatural, but the fact that the dog is (apparently) not a spirit is the one that's surprising.

    Based on the dog's constant half-lidded glare, I've been assuming it's the doctor.

    Hey everybody. I wanted to start Volume V today, but a couple of obstacles have popped up.

    Due to an emergency family situation (my mom's having some health issues), I had to go home to Tennessee to make sure things were all okay. I'm back now working on the comics, but I may have to go back soon. I hate using this stuff as an excuse for being late, but it is what is and I can only do my best to get us back on track.

    So, I'm working on this season as we speak, and hopefully we'll have a new page next week. Again, I'm very sorry for the delay. It will be worth it!

    Thanks for the support. It's greatly appreciated.

    -Mike

    One Punch Man (1 NSFW page) is a Japanese webcomic by ONE.

    Murata's version of this comic made the Limb Cutter a bit more visually impressive. Also, he gave the Beast King a snazzy outfit with a lion-head beltbuckle.

    I think so, those texts popped up in an earlier chapter without mentioning who they were from, and she and will have been very pally. But it may be a mystery for a reason.

    Recently Doug TenNapel came out in favour of Gamer Gate! Whooooo. Wooooooooo. Same reason I scroll quickly past anytime posts Blaster Nation

    hmmm. now I'm worried how this is going to play out. I hope he doesn't end up blaming his homosexuality for his suicide attempt and seeming general depression

    While I don't read this comic, I'd probably like to know what specifically the author said in favor of Tennapel before I assumed this author was the same style of bigot. Sometimes people defend their bigot friend because it's their friend, not because they actually agree with their friend.

    The BlasterNation thing is slightly different because the author had stated some whiffy opinions on these forums previously about how feminist thinkers are wrong to criticise gaming/geek shit because reasons, so it felt like he/they were pretty much already there before gamergate started skulking about.

    Though if this comic does go that way, I guess you'll have your answer as to where the author stands.

    So, traitor to the inquisition tried to off its leader to sow chaos while he lead his patterner cult in ritualistic sacrifice. He captured the double agent, gloated, drugged her, and groped her breast a little. Because he's evil.

    Cut to the inquisition.

    Wait so the author of the webcomic where all the characters are unlikeable to the point where I don't find it worth reading is himself unlikeable?

    It makes so much sense.

    Before following any advice, opinions, or thoughts I may have expressed in the above post, be warned: I found Keven Costners "Waterworld" to be a very entertaining film.

    POSSIBLY unlikable. All we know is that they have defended a very unlikable person.

    also I keep reading unlikable as unkillable

    I guess? Bossking didn't seem like a particularly bad dude. The comic more-or-less covers his stance on gamergate from what I've read.

    decomposey is talking about blaster nation I believe

    because I like blaster nation like I like arrested development, in that I hate all the characters and want them to suffer and therefore enjoy seeing the hell they make for themselves

    Not exactly. The desert isn't dry because it gets no moisture but because it can't hold on to the moisture in the day. At night ice can and will form in below freezing temperatures just fine, I've had to scrape it off the car windows plenty often.

    Do desert cultures typically have lots of metal structures, historically?
