Hey dudes. So it’s been a while. Sorry about that.
Since I last updated, my life kinda turned upside down and inside out. Though it was all for the best. Long story short, I’ve decided to stop pursuing comics as a career. It feels good. I sort of feel like I’ve emerged from a cult, or walked away from an abusive spouse. Looking back on the last 5 years, comics really fucked me up. I learned a very harsh lesson about what it’s like to be a person like myself in this industry and I should have walked away as soon as I learned it. But that’s that. I like to just say to myself “I lost 5 years to comics” like you would an illness (Though if I’m 100% honest, it probably wasn’t the only factor. Significant though)
So I’m back in the land of the living. I have a full time job in the area I did my degree in. These days, that’s a pretty big achievement, I’d say.
What does that mean for Between Worlds? At this stage, I’m not sure. BW was created with a fire that was stoked with ambition. I always wanted to tell the story, but the push to improve, get faster, bring the quality up and up was down to that drive to make a career out of comics. I’d held off on posting this page (Which I had done before I even last updated) as I considered my options. Now that I’ve made my decision, it’s hard to know how to fill that gap. I guess it’ll take time.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was on my side throughout this. All the readers, reviewers and buddies (you know damn well who you are!). You guys helped SO much in getting through those painful times (ie every day) when I just couldn’t seem to impress any of those editors or superstars of my once beloved industry.
Whatever happens, I’ll never forget any of you. You guys made it worth it. As much as I regret pursuing comics as a career, I will never regret having made them.
All my love.
