Sorry for the delay, guys. Really. Not cool of me to promise a page and then disappear off the face of the earth for two weeks. I barely slept, so that’s my excuse. I’ll… try to sleep more… I guessssss…? Um.
And it strikes like lightning! Thanks Aviv! Now get some sleep.
Their motto seems to be “Anything can be a snake if you try hard enough!”
Yes that’s their whole life I think. Sad, really.
Oh, the Freudian theories I could come up with about these two…
Anyway, how about you just keep making comics when you can and want to and no sooner, and I’ll just keep checking back periodically and it will be a pleasant surprise when there’s a new comic and I’ll just squee with glee and we’ll call it a deal? No apologies necessary–I’m totally getting way more than I put in, and you’re awesome, and that’s pretty much how it is. Also, sleep is awesome, too. I’d rather have infrequent comics and know you’re doing okay. This story can wait for your personal story to not always be a cliffhanger, eh?
And yet I feel obligated (to the story? to the readers? to myself? who knows) to produce them faster. I just can’t help myself. But you are right, of course. I should take it easy.
Also, yes, don’t stress yourself (giant snakes are stress enough).
I feel you. Falling behind on personal projects sucks. Just try and not push yourself too hard.
And thanks for yet another awesome page!
Like I said before, Aviv, consider us an army of friends standing at your back rather than an impatient, shuffling audience. I totally understand why you want to update the comic while it’s burning like lines of fire in your imagination; but it needs to be done your own golden way and not rushed. Michelangelo took four years to do the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and he had a Pope telling him to hurry; I think we rank below Pope, so take your time.
As eager as I am to see another page – it’s your comic and your pace. It won’t do any good to rush things. There are so many things I need to do all day – visting the page at the end of it and have a new page waiting for me is not taken for granted but a welcome bonus. What you have here is not just another daily strip but a piece of art. Hope, you have a chill weekend.
Worth the wait!
I totally agree with Vosla – this is art, elevated above ordinary sequential storytelling. You seem to be moving into territory where only Moebius has ventured. Take care of yourself. Finish this next year or whatever.
Lightning snake! D00d!
Totally worth a T-shirt design !
Holy shit. Yes.
Not a bad idea. I have some idea how it could look like… I have no time for that right now but I’ll keep it in mind. And sorry for not updating, again, in so long!
S’okay. All I ask is to know the rest of the story- whenever it comes!
I second that.
I have some years left, I can wait.
We are still here, and the Snake is still Stupid. And the world is being stupid too.
Though it seems, the world got a lot stupider within the last months.
Sometimes, I wish to go mining asteroids instead.
Snake? SNAKE? SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!
(My humblest apologies. Couldn’t help it. )
Hope all is well with you, Aviv!
I’m busy, with little time to make comics. Hopefully my schedule will ease up a bit soon.
Oh, we aren’t complaining, just checking in. I check the page often and sometimes click the links. Being busy is a good thing. Being happy is also good. Hope you are enjoying life.
What Scrod said!
I second… errr… third that !
oh ma goshes. just read through the entire thing, from start to finish. was supposed to be working… but it was totally worth it! I’ve been fiddling with doing little comics for a long time now, and I’ve got some stories, but you’ve really inspired me to just go for it. Maybe. Sometime.
Seriously, this comic series is kickass. Think I’ll have to buy the first three books. Thanks man!
Hey, you’re welcome! Thanks for reading!
Stupid Snake is like a lighthouse shining from far away across a dark ocean. It will bring lost travelers to land for many years.
Just watched a magnific thunderstorm. Had to think of you and this page.
Do you consider to sell PDF-versions of your comic books ? Maybe I missed it; just found printed versions. I have no physical room left for books.
Oops! This was intended as a reply to Aviv, not Scrod.
This is a fine idea. Thanks for suggesting it!
I’ll add all three books to my Etsy and Gumroad as soon as possible.
Good news – GOBLINS is back. He had similar issues and took off time to heal up and recover. Maybe it is a sign that things are getting better all over, and yes, PDF versions are a great idea.
Seen that, too. Did you know Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary also has anxiety problems ? Is it me or is the creative mind vulnerable to such troubles ? Or is the creative work an outlet ? It was for me until my artistic self died under years of untreated dysthymia.
Argh, I dunno. I am creative but unstable, but I know tons of successful people who knock out novel after novel without breaking a sweat. Maybe some of us are ‘overclocking’ ourselves like computers, burning our candle at both ends to get that image or phrase just right, doing things that should be out of our reach but somehow aren’t.
Just checking in. You okay, Aviv ?
How’s the PDF idea coming along ?
Not well! I need a new computer. The pdf idea is on hold for now. Sorry for the delays, as usual.
Damn! That’s bad luck… :-/
Hope you didn’t lost any relevant data.
Hopefully, you are well otherwise.
This is a fucked up world and we are all riding the waves of chaos.
So… No need to feel sorry about delays.
Hang in there, Aviv. it’s Halloween over here and everything is either pumpkin-flavored or pumpkin-adorned.
How are you, Aviv? I keep my fingers crossed you are better and I am looking forward to see next page.
I’m okay! Thanks for the donation! I have some issues with drawing, since it used to be my whole life, and that wasn’t a very good life… I want to draw but it just doesn’t come naturally anymore. I hope it’s temporary.
Winter has come… and the year will end soon.
Wish you a good new one, Aviv…
Thanks! I hope things will pick up on the cartooning front, most of all.
The year turns, and a new one begins. Maybe all the random factors will align correctly, the chickens will all hatch, and we’ll all become rich and famous. More likely it will just be more of the same, but the same has been pretty good so far. Aviv, hope you have a good holiday!
Rise and shine, Mr. Freeman. Rise and shine.
Hey Aviv, Just wanted to stop by and let you know I did a little write-up of your comic on my blog. It’s not a review, but a recommendation. You can check it out here: http://www.amugful.com/?p=171
Thanks for all of your hard work over the years.
Thanks for reading! I am humbled by your kind words. I really hope I can get back to this comic and finish it properly. Maybe soon.
Well done. I hope this helps more people to find this gem of a webcomic.
Yeah hi. I’m still here, lurking in the shadows.
I’m so glad to see you are still around. I still check up here every so often, and even if there’s no new page it’s good to see you haven’t disappeared completely.
I come by every so often and hit the page.
Oh, well. When Scrod shows up, I can’t shut up. ;-P
Thought about dusting off my old comic stuff to continue doodling after years, but – holy cow – completely incoherent story telling and inconsistent line art. Not to mention what air humidity did to my fineliner work.
Seems I have to start over.
Anyone in for some stupid half-assed doodling or something ?
I tried posting an image and got denied. Let me try some more . . .
Made me chuckle. HrrrHrrr.
Have some old game cover spoof I made for “Game Over” :
Good stuff – nice bold lines!
