The hardest part about restarting EverydayAbnormal has been writing this post.

Three years ago, working on Jaye’s story, I hit a wall. I’d hit walls before; that was nothing new. This particular wall, though, was different. I knew it was different even if I didn’t want to admit it was different. I *could not* force myself to pick up my stylus and ink another page. I’d like to say something dramatic, like I’d scream if I had to lay out another set of six panels, but the truth is it couldn’t get to that point.

I simply no longer had the mental willpower to pick up that stylus and put it down on an EvAb page. Honestly, it was a week or two before drawing anything else was a relaxing activity instead of a strain. I had just burned out with far, far too much work for far too little reward.

But… I always did want to come back. There was so much story I was excited for with too many characters I fell in love with. And my fans… my readers… you... waited patiently and excitedly. Leaving messages and checking up to see if the comic was coming back. I crossed paths with a few people who I’d never talked to that said they’d read the comic and missed it.

And then…. I met Mertiya.

Mertiya fell in love with a bunch of the characters. And wrote fanfiction. And hounded me for questions about this story or that character bit. And essentially screamed in my ear (his words, not mine!) to do the goddamn comic already.

And eventually, I had a script.

And eventually, I had Veracious Creatures finished.

And eventually…. We got here.

Veracious Creatures will be updating Mondays and Friday for the next couple weeks until it’s finished. Then I’ll be sporadically updating with character bios until we’re ready to launch the EverydayAbnormal: Comeback. crowdfunding campaign!

EverydayAbnormal, Chapter 10: Comeback. is written by myself and Mertiya, and will feature art by myself and ComicFury’s own AngryRob! The crowdfunding will be used to pay my co-creators and set us up for a physical store. Once Comeback. is finished and released in physical form, we’ll begin posting here again… if you want to read it early, please support us!

Thank you so much for reading, everybody. Thank you so much for still being here.

I gotta say… it feels good to be back.

I'm very happy to have the comic back! I'm sorry you got so burned out... please only do this comic as long as you actually enjoy doing it.

P.S. If I had known that writing fanfic would help bring the comic back, I would have started writing fanfic.

P.P.S. Please add a Patreon option, or some other funding option where I can sign up once and it will pay you monthly (or whatever).

That's the plan! The plan is to work with a lot more artists and the like to take some of that burden off.

The Patreon and other support options will be coming back!
