Hey guys!

I know last year I said SOTR would return in the summer of 2016, and, well, it’s the middle of August. I’m sure all of y’all are sitting here wondering where the heck it is! Well, I have a confession to make, but I’m sure everyone knew this from the get-go.

SOTR was an overly ambitious project of mine that I started with no practical comic writing/making experience. I quite literally woke up one morning and decided I was going to make a webcomic, and by the end of the week I had hashed together some semblance of a story and started drawing it. I didn’t even know how the story was going to end until a few months ago. That being said, this is my promise that SOTR will return someday. But it won’t be how you see it now.

I fully intend to start the story over from the beginning, but I’ll do it right this time. The basics of the story will still be there, all the characters, everything. But it will be better. Better art, better story, better pacing, everything. Think of this chapter as a pitch. I’ve got your attention, haven’t I? So when it comes back I hope you’ll be there to read it.

My long term goals right now are to make as many short comics as I can until April of 2017. I’ll then be disappearing and hiking the Pacific Crest Trail for 4 to 5 months, and when I come back I’ll be translating that experience into a biographical comic/graphic novel. And finally, after that, I hope I can bring SOTR back, better than ever.

But until then, I’d like to thank you for reading SOTR, and thank you for joining me on this short adventure.
