1/3/15 Update -- Well. After a busy job week, I'd been planning on getting this sucker done on my two days off for New Years. Instead, I got a cold and spent most of that time lying in bed drifting in and out of consciousness while TV shows burbled in the background. Sigh. This coming week I'm expecting to put in between 50 and 58 hours on my two dayjobs. This silly update really is coming, dialogue is all written out. I've even got the following strip roughed out. But at this rate I'll be surprised if I get much time to pull it together before next weekend. I'll do my best. I've received some nice emails, and I thank you all for your patience.
Hi folks. The update really is almost done. I'd hoped to have it ready for Christmas, but dayjobs (plural) and holiday family obligations and an annoying need for sleep, as well as my own artist's neurotic perfectionism with the thing, have delayed it. I'm pretty sure I'll have it up this weekend, and it will be a big sprawling multi-panel thing. In the meantime, for those of you who celebrate it, have a very Merry Christmas.
The update schedule has, of course, all but disingtegrated the past two years. Trust me, you don't want a description of all that's gone on in my life to hinder my webcomic lately. But I do plan to eventually get it back onto a regular schedule. Heck, I even plan to get that third "Bob" book out eventually.
And in case you're curious... no, of course I'm not claiming to have any definitive meaning of life. Over a year ago, when I introduced the Butterfly and the exact nature of his newborn neuroses, I knew I'd written myself into a spot where this question was inevitably going to get posed to my hero, and he'd be obliged to provide some kind of response to the thing that didn't feel like a complete cop-out. So... well, I hope you like what I came up with. See you soon.
