First, my apologies for not having a new page again this week. It’s all on me – Rick is well ahead. I know it’s frustrating for you to have the momentum interrupted at this (obviously climactic) point in the story, and I want to assure you that it’s doubly frustrating for us.
I’ve been struggling with a couple of different computer issues that, unfortunately, currently only affect this project (mostly because everything on my other webcomics is essentially completed for now). I’m not going to detail these problems here because: a.) I think I’ve got a handle on ‘em now, and b.) their existence at all only reflects my own computer incompetence.
That said, I believe I’m very close to resolving them, and barring further disasters, Gravedigger will return on Monday, September 30th.
I appreciate your patience, and hope you’ll “dig” the rest of “The Predators.”
Having issues with my old Mac G-4, which is the machine I still do all my comics production on. Hoping to resolve those problems ASAP. In the meantime… please stand by.
Yesterday afternoon, while lettering and preparing this week’s Gravedigger comic page for upload, I fell ill. I ended up lying down (and sleeping) for much of the rest of the day. In the late evening, feeling somewhat better, I tried to get the page finished and posted, but was simply too tired to concentrate properly, and kept making mistakes, finally quitting in frustration around midnight.
I apologize for missing the update, and have decided to skip this week completely. Page 44 will be posted next Monday, September 1st, instead.
I appreciate your patience.
For the one or two of you who might find the information useful, I will be attending the BangPop show in Bangor, Maine (http://www.bangpopmaine.com/) September 20 and 21st. I *may* also be exhibiting at the Portland Comic Expo in Portland, Maine on October 26th… but that’s not definite yet. Stay tuned…
I really thought we were getting back on track, but other commitments – on both my part and Rick’s – have messed with our schedule again. Our sincere apologies, and we’ll be back next Monday – and working hard to stay on track in the future.
