What Happened?

Ok... First off a I'd like to apologize to the readers of ArcaneTimes. Yes I know the comic just stopped without any kind of warning. I should have at least said something about it when I realized it was not going to get done. So to those people that depended on my timely strip every Monday, Wednesday and Friday -- I send out a heartfelt "I'm Sorry" ... To both of you.

As for why there was no strip this week, I am working furiously to finish an art order for Cheapass Games before I leave for Gen-Con on the 18th. The strip will be back next week and I may even post some previews of the art I did as well to make up in some small way for the delays.

Thanks again for your patience... both of you

My Princess Diary

This Wednesday's strip is a fairly accurate event. It was a Saturday night. I was online at an ungodly hour playing 'City of Heroes' when I spotted Shane's character come up. I sent out a "howdy" message and he said "hi" back -- then he invited me to join his team on a mission in 'Steel Canyon'.
He also said "I tried to get a hold of you via IM -- but you weren't on all day".
"nope" I replied "the IM on my home computer is all wonky, it hasn't worked for weeks".
"Well I got something I want to talk to you about..." He said "can I call you?"
"ok" I said and made sure he had my new phone number.
We talked for a bit, while our superhero avatars stood twiddling their thumbs. When we were done, I had a 3 book deal and strange mixture of elation and dread churning in my stomach. "This was the big time" I told myself "you do this right and you could be up there with the likes of Elmore and Brom in 2 or 3 years -- Screw it up and you are over..."
Then Shane's avatar piped back up. "Hey wanna go do a mission? I got one in the sewers in Boomtown."
"Sure" I said
And off we rode into the sunset -- killing zombies as we went.
