Taking a break

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Hi all,
after weeks of struggling with the idea, I have decided that it’s time for me to take a break from Geek Hero. This does not mean that the comic is dead: a break is a break, not an end. The site will continue to work, and so will Talk and the IRC channel. I don’t know when I will start making new comics, and whether they’ll ever be regular again, but I think I will publish some material every now and then. It might be a comic, or a drawing, or a joke, I don’t know, but hold your RSS readers and do not delete the feed!

If you’re not an RSS user, please become one, or subscribe via email, so that you can reserve yourself the possibility of staying in the loop, when I’ll publish some material again.

After doing this for almost two years, it has occurred to me that I wasn’t doing it solely for myself anymore, but because of you, the readers. There’s between 5000 and 6000 of you out there, and it breaks my heart to know that some of you will be disappointed. Many of you have donated money too, and I thank you very much, because that has kept the website running.

Because of the way the comic has started to feel to me, I started to feel it was too much of a responsibility, and it has made me anxious at times. The decision of taking a break is a very very hard one, trust me, but I need to see what it’s like without.

I might just miss it very much, and get back to it. I need to find out. Hopefully Randie and Boris, and everybody else, won’t feel as dead ones to you. I have decided to take this break the moment I realized I was mourning them already, since it’s really hard to let them go.

I hope you will understand my feelings and stick around just in case. If you want to write me a support or hate email, feel free of course.

Nonetheless, I’m glad I have given some of you some smiles or LOLs some times.

Thanks for reading so far,
