Unto 2014

The more you want to be able to do something, the harder it is not to be able to do it. Just now, what I'd like to be able to do more than anything is summarize. I want to be able to understand all the things that have happened to me over the past 12 months. It's hard because I don't want to analyze so many things that went so badly. There's a price to be paid when what you are and what you think you can be are greatly out of alignment. For some people this constitutes ambition, and for some it's delusion, and the only way to know is to try.

I tried giving up my old life to go traveling, and it was a disaster. It was actually even worse when I got back, for reasons I'd still rather not share. But the life I'm living now makes me happier than the one I left behind to get here. It is for that reason that, for the first time since 2010, I really believe next year will be better than this.

I'm so sorry Our World has gone a year without an update, and it's more or less entirely my fault. The good news is that last night Kuurion sent me the finished versions of the first 12 pages of the prologue chapter. They're as good as anything he's ever drawn, and I can't wait until we can show them to you.

To recap, the rewrite covers the parts of the comic that are currently done as color pages. We're redoing that part of the comic, both in story and art, because neither of us were happy with it. The completed rewrite will segue directly into the existing black and white pages.

I don't know if I'll keep up the blog or not. Kuurion hasn't written a post in literally years, so it's just me now, and my enthusiasm for it has waned. I suppose we'll see. As it stands, I have reasons to believe 2014 will be a good year, and there, too, I suppose we'll see. Thanks for reading.


  1. Quick question, not related to this particular blog entry: what happened to the website where the comic is hosted? Everytime I try to go there the page says "This Account Has Been Suspended". Did you perhaps move somewhere else?

  2. We are looking into moving, but that's not why the site is down. We basically sublet space from some friends of Kuurion's who had their own website. For some reason their credit card was recently cancelled, and their new one hasn't arrived yet. In the interim, it appears they haven't paid the host.

    I'm not mad about this - it was a service provided to us for free, and we're both grateful - but I'm sorry for readers like you that this happened, and we are hoping the site will be back up soon. Thanks for keeping the faith.
