No, I’ve not given up on the comic yet.
I’ve always said that this is a side project and as such will face delays due to life and the work that pays me, as opposed to costing me. So I’ve had comic conventions and sketch card deadlines to deal with, as well as vacation and illness. And it’s all not over yet. I’ve discovered that for some reason the holiday period is one where deadlines just keep coming. I’ve still got 2 more deadlines and a convention ahead of me this month, so updates will be sparse if at all for about another 2-3 weeks.
It also doesn’t help that the Burroughs estate has launched it’s own selection of web comics (behind a paywall no less), and are a litigious bunch of people. I have no desire to compete with them, and if they ever do actually launch a PoM web comic, that’ll pretty much be it for me. Add to that an itch I have to do something of my own (as opposed to an adaptation) and I’ve a lot to think about, on top of my deadlines and the like.
Anyway, I’ll be set up at NC Comicon the weekend of November 9-10, so if you enjoy the comic, stop by and say hi!
