Today's comic, Random Encounter, for Friday 21st of February 2020
Friday 22 February
Comic will be slightly late!! I will post it once I am done sleeping
Friday 21 February
I am mostly recovered but still pretty tired! So I've finally got the new Random Encounter page! ...but it's just inks for now. I'll try to colour it in the next few days!
Thanks for putting up with my continued delays, I really really hope I'm totally back to normal by next weeeeeeeek
Thursday 20 February
I wanted to catch up on drawing yesterday's Death's Door instead of posting today's Key and then I did.
Now I feel bad, because it's been a while since I drew Key and uhh it's not at the best place to stop, huh? I'll see if I can draw that later in the week, maybe instead of Fall (I really gotta update The Breaking this week since it's also been a while since I updated that, haha).
Wednesday 19 February
Now that I am finally feeling pretty recovered from surgery, my stomach has naturally decided to be like "hey, remember me? remember how i am paralysed and always give you a hard time??" and now I am too sick to move.
So I will lie here and grumble and plot and HOPEFULLY TOMORROW will be a day for drawing and posting comics.
Tuesday 18 February
Alright!! The rest of this week is a week for catching up missed updates!! As long as I don't fall asleep first.
Here's a double-page Mysteries of the Obscured update! Col is even less good at lying than usual when he's suffering from shifting syndrome.
Monday 17 February
Stiiiiiiilll slowly recovering! But hey tomorrow is a MotO update day and that's much easier to draw so maybe I won't miss that update? haha.
I'm about halfway through inking this Random Encounter page too so with any luck I won't miss the next one of those :V
Sunday 16 February
I'm kinda mad at my body for not being all better already, harrumph. So I wasn't able to draw a comic today BUT I WAS RESCUED by the amazing InterestInhuman, who totally had my back with this hilarious fan-comic. Thank you!!!
I set up a lil Extras page (like Way Back Home has) to store this excellent comic. I love it!
Saturday 15 February
Alright! So uh. Today's comic is sketched, it's just gonna be a scootch late because I am quite sick. Normal Friday night around here, haha
Sorry for the delay!! Here's this week's Fall update! Because Ceraph is a jerk, we all know that, right?
Friday 14 February
I was planning on returning to normal updates today, but then I pushed it way too hard and felt real bad. So I couldn't quite get a normal update done. So I decided the best thing to do, was to draw something completely simple and doofy, and so I have another Short Shift volume. At least I remembered to actually upload the volume navigation images to the right folder today though so the full-volume navigation doesn't look so bad now, haha.
Hoping tomorrow is the day that I'm OK enough to draw normal stuff!! Let's seeeeee
Thursday 13 February
I thought about getting back to normal updates, and then I thought, hrmm I still feel quite terrible so how about I draw another new Short Shift volume. So I did and you can view the whole thing at once here.
I'm not sure why I thought that would be like... less? effort than a regular update. Clearly, recovering-from-surgery Merlin is a genius.
But I am hoping I will be a bit more better tomorrow. Gotta get back to work and stuff. Maybe I can do a regular update. Or like, take a proper rest instead. Theoretically I could do that.
Wednesday 12 February
I did think about doing what I said I'd do yesterday and posting this comic a page at a time, but then I thought, nah, post the whole thing. So I did! The pages start from here!
I also coded the Short Shift archives to have full-volume view, so you can also view the whole thing at once here
What will I do tomorrow...? Hmm. Haven't decided yet.
Tuesday 11 February
Hmm! Monday was not a fun day. I'm glad I got something prepared to post in advance because I am.. all tuckered out.
So today I'll start another Short Shift volume! Just one page today because I didn't get this one all done in advance :P
I'll be posting this one a page at a time until it's done, then hopefully I will be recovered enough to go back to normal updates
Monday 10 February
OK! I ended up working muuuuch longer hours over the weekend than I was expecting, so I pretty much didn't get a chance to upload an anything. So uh, also didn't get a chance to draw anything, so hey I'll start early with the stuff I got prepared to post while I recover from surgery! That said, today I've got a Short Shift update! It's an entire new volume! The story was written by Speedball, and I had a great time adapting it!
Tomorrowwwwww I'll try to post something, haha. I could have kept this whole volume and doled it out one page at a time BUT IT'S A NEW VOLUME HERE YOU GO. If I miss another update, I'll miss another update. But I've actually been working on another Short Shift volume, so my plan is I'll post *that* one page at a time for the rest of the week. It's much shorter! Haha
Anyway, time to try to get some sleep after working too much and before I get to experience the joys of what the rest of Monday will bring :V
Saturday 8 February
Comic is definitely on its way, but it's been a looooooong few days so I'm a bit tired so it's going to be a bit late! I'll finish it when I wake up :V zzzz
Here's that Fall update!! now to return to my slumber while I can. Sunday's update has a super high chance of being late P: or... I could just start posting the stuff I was intending to start Tuesday after my surgery, hrmm....
Friday 7 February
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Some lovely friends helped keep me company online while I was working on this one which is the only reason I was able to get it finished on time, haha. No more library, yaaaaay!
Thursday 6 February
Suuuuper sick and sleepy today, so I wasn't able to get a comic done. I'll proooobably miss Sunday's update as well cuz I'm working, but uhhh I'll do my best to rest up and then not miss more than this.
Pffft and so soon after I'd started catching up too. Oh well. Being a zany week so far. Next week I'm prepared to post a BUNCH of pages that should make it up somewhat. I've some minor surgery on Monday so while I recover I'll post some Short Shift comics P:
Wednesday 5 February
Time for this week's Death's Door update! If a vampire says something has massive fangs, you know them chompers is huge
That dragon got nothing on Acer from MotO tho
Tuesday 4 Februray
I managed to get yesterday's comic coloured, yaaay. I also have today's Mysteries of the Obscured update! And now I have... to sleep zzz
Monday 3 Feburary
Right! Here's a Random Encounter update! Just lines... I keep being late on the colour, oops. Llllots of books to colour in this one, but I'll try to get it coloured for tomorrow!
Sunday 2 February
Didn't get to draw The Breaking this week, but I did get a Fall update! It's still very hot, but at least the fire isn't coming too close. That's a plus.
Random Encounter's coloured too now, and I fixed a few minor errors :X
Saturday 1 February
We are deeeeep in the depths of another heatwave, so I spent all afternoon lying on the floor because it was too hot to draw comics. It's gonna be hot all weekend but I'll see if I can draw some stuff tomorrow... we'll see though because there is also a biiiig bushfire nearby. Who knows what'll happen lol (I'll probably be fine)
Friday 31 January
Here's today's Random Encounter update! Once again uh, some delays, sorry! It is just inks today, but I'll have it coloured by the end of the weekend. I was super distracted all day, I've got a miiinor surgery in a little over a week so I'm trying to prepare some comics I can post while I'm recovering.
Thursday 30 January
Tiiiime for another Key update! Or, crime never pays: the series

Friday 24 January
Here's today's Random Encounter update! It's just inks for now, been a busy day. Hopefully I will have it coloured tomorrow.
Thursday 23 January
Time for another double-update, here's this week's Key update! Now I'm caught up on everything except Random Encounter, aka, the hardest to get caught up on (I'm three pages behind on that, whoops).
Wednesday 22 January
Here's this week's Death's Door update! Two pages to make up for missing last week's update. Now I'm only four pages behind, hrmm
Tuesday 21 January
Here's this week's Mysteries of the Obscured update! ...at some point this year I wanna try to bring this comic back up to two pages a week. But step one is, try to keep consistent updates for all the comics for a little while (and maybe try to catch up on some of the pages I already missed, if I can).
Monday 20 January
Here's today's Random Encounter update! What's the point in dreaming if you don't fly

Saturday 18 January
Here's this week's Fall update! Just bros.
Friday 17 January
I finally got an update done on time!! Here's today's Random Encounter update! Here's hoping I can continue getting updates done on time :V I also got Monday's update coloured and yesterday's update shaded. Kind of productive.
Thursday 16 January
So tired, such a long day aa... I've got today's Key update, but it's only flat-coloured, I will shade in the morrrrning. Ugh this month! Keeps going. But hopefully I can slowly get more reliable with updates :V
Wednesday 15 January
Comic is sketched, but I am absolutely prepared for today to be a completely chaotic day, so uh, focussing on dealing with that instead of drawing comics. Hopefully everything goes a whole lot better than I expect, then I'll be able to get something drawn tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
Tuesday 14 January
I could swear I just closed my eyes for a moment to rest and then I looked down and it's nearly 1am, whoopsie. So here's this week's Mysteries of the Obscured update, only uh, once again just lines and colour to follow. I gotta have a mad colour catch up day sometime this week apparently, aaaa
edit: colour's up!!!
Monday 13 January
The good news is, I finally got my act together enough to draw a new Random Encounter update! The less good news is I didn't quite manage to get it coloured, but I'll do my best to get it done by the end of the week. It's kind of a crazy month. I think it'll get worse before it gets better, haha. But in the end hopefully I will get everything sorted out and then eventually, everything will be sorted out :V
Sunday 12 January
What is with this month?? comic will be slightly late, I'll try to finish it in the morning :v
Late update: here's this week's The Breaking update!! Back to theeeeese people, it's been too long since Deimi hours
Saturday 11 January
So busy.... comic now shade when I awaken - sleepy Merlin
Edit: shading's done~!
Friday 10 January
This year so far is like, way too busy, and way too much filled with me flailing about being unwell in one form or another, sheesh!!! I'm definitely gonna update Random Encounter this week, it's just gonna be late. Again :V
Thursday 9 January
Time for this week's Key update! It's been so long since the last one so I'm sitting here like "dang I forgot how to draw all these people".
In today's comic, Jun is me. Goodnight zzz
Wednesday 8 January
Here's this week's Death's Door update! You really wanna be prepared before you corner a vampire.
Tuesday 7 January
Right!! Time for a Mysteries of the Obscured update! Finally.
Monday 6 January
I really have started this year off on the laziest possible foot. Turns out I love being lazy. But I'll get back in the swing of things soon!! Hopefully!! Summer is always the worst time for drawing comics, sheesh.
Sunday 5 January
Ooof. Saturday turned out to be the hottest day ever recorded here, so it has been just waaaaaay too hot to draw a comic. Looks like today should be less bad, so I'ma try to get something drawn in the morning...
Alright it's late and kinda simple, but it's done!! Here's this week's The Breaking update!!
Saturday 4 January
Alright!!! Finally a comic!!! Here's that Random Encounter update!
Friday 3 January
I tried! But there's so much smoke today it's kinda hard to breathe and is making me feel really unwell... and though I did my best, I wasn't able to finish today's update either.
Random Encounter being my favourite comic, my plan is to try to get it updated tomorrow instead.
Thursday 2 January
Welcome to January, I realised I could either do a comic or I could be a slacker and take the day off.
Anyway, there's no comic today, but here's to me not doing this so much this year!!!
Wednesday 1 January
Welcome to the new year! I hope it is a good year for everybodyyyy. Here's a Darkness Falls update! And that wraps up this lil holiday volume, so tomorrow I will head back to work and also head back to normal updates I suppose!
