Sorry everyone, I thought I could do it but I can’t. I had intended to be free enough to be able to return to working on Sin Titulo by December but the post-Europe rush combined with the impending holidays makes it impossible. I could do a strip this week but there’s zero chance I’d have one for next week or the week after so it makes it sort of pointless to start up again until I can maintain a reasonably steady update schedule.
As frustrating as this might be for you the readers, I promise you it’s more frustrating for me to have the flow of writing interrupted, and while I could try to force myself to rush them out for the sake of having one done every week, that really defeats the purpose of why I started this strip – I wanted to do something personal and creatively satisfying for myself, and cranking them out to meet “deadlines” is the last thing I want to do.
I also promise you that I’m not abandoning the strip – I’ve had significant interest from both domestic and foreign publishers and it’s given me more motivation than ever to finish the story. I just need a little more time to get back into it.
The silver lining is that all of the work that I have been doing for Disney and DC that has kept me from working on Sin Titulo has left me financially stable enough that I’ve decided that once I wrap up Batman & Robin in February, I will start work on Sin Titulo again and work ONLY on that until it is finished. Once I am working on it daily I will probably increase the frequency of the web updates, and my goal is to have the book finished, printed, and on sale by late 2010.
Once again I apologize for this, but it’s really my only option. Thanks to everyone for the support thus far and we’ll be back in February.
Happy holidays to everyone.
