PEST CONTROL - 8 of 17


(This is pretty much a repeat of the Kaspall news post on Monday).

And the news is ... I'm pregnant! I'm just over halfway in the pregnancy, so, if all goes well, the baby will arrive in early March next year! Whoo-hooooooh crap wait I'm doing two comics, damn. Yeah. Obviously, this is going to have Repercussions.

So. Here's the plan.

The current Spare Keys story will end at some point in January. From then on SK will be on hiatus, and I will be concentrating exclusively on Kaspall.

Once the baby does arrive (whatever point the comic may be at), both SK and Kaspall will be on hiatus for at least the first three months. Even if I do get time to do some comicking - which seems unlikely - I'll save the pages up rather than posting them. Depending on how things go, they may well be on hiatus for longer. It kind of sucks to not be able to be more definite than that, but I think everyone knows I'd be stupid to try and pin things down.

When I come off hiatus, Kaspall will restart first, and I plan to work on it until it's finished, before restarting SK. I know this will mean a long break for Spare Keys, which I'm not happy about. However, Kaspall is heading towards it's conclusion at the moment, and I'm keen to get it finished - that way, I'm only working on one comic at a time, and may be able to maintain something at least approaching a page a week schedule. Though I may still do an SK short or something, just as a change and to keep the characters awake.

Just to offer some kind of reassurance - I've got three scripts written for SK, all of which I really want to do, plus there's several characters that will be seriously pissed off if I never get around to introducing them. So I've got no intention of ditching this comic - especially when I've just managed to really get going with it. But yeah. I'm afraid there's going to be a bit of a wait for the next story.

Anyway. That's the plan. Will it actually happen like that? I have no idea ... I'm afraid you guys will have to have be patient with me ... but whatever happens I'll always aim to keep you updated. Just, you know ... not so much the comics ...
