If you guys don't follow me on Tumblr, you might have missed this very important announcement: until I can build a sizable buffer for BOTH FR and WUMB, both my comics are going to be Patreon-exclusive. To me, a sizable buffer will be about 20-25 pages each, making that about half a year of updates for both comics.
My productivity has been shot by an intense cloud of self-doubt and self-loathing that I have been silent about, but have been dealing with since the beginning of the year. And I notice that my buffers have been suffering because of that. I feel so much more secure when I have a buffer, but I've been having a really hard time convincing myself that I need to keep up with maintaining a healthy one.
I can't say how long building this massive buffer of 40-50 pages is going to take. I really want to be optimistic and say I can do it in about two months, but I have to be realistic. This is the closest thing I can take to a "break". I could never completely back away from working on either of my comics, because that would kill me more than fighting to maintain a buffer. And because you are my patrons, I think you all deserve to still get access to my content as I build this buffer. After all, you guys get all my content before anyone else does.
For FR, I'm shooting for completing up to page 200, which will get us close to the end of chapter 3. For WUMB, I will focus on completing this chapter - it's actually about twice as long as the first chapter, so this works out just fine.
For Patreon, things are continuing as normal. I'll post pages and other content as I finish them. The main comic sites will be more or less untouched as I try to rebuild this safety net.
