Hiatus, but not Bye-atus

The “Fairy Shark Mother” from my upcoming children’s book.

I’ve decided to put A Penny Dreadful on hiatus while focusing on the children’s book I’ve been writing and illustrating for the past year. I hate to put everything on hold before it’s even reached the real meat of the story (where are the pirates?! I thought this was a pirate comic!!!), but I promise I’ll return to Illustrating Kit, Arlo, and a bevy of as-yet-unrevealed character very soon.

Until then, check out the progress on my children’s book project by following my new twitter feed here!

APD returns!

Doug storms out

It’s been a long few months of unemployment, job searches, job finding, new job learning, and comic-not-updating, but A Penny Dreadful isn’t gone just yet! We’re getting back into the flow, starting with two new pages before the and of the year!

Where has APD gone?

I’ve kind of dropped off the web comic map a little over the past month or so. Between job hunting and home repairs, I’ve had less time to work on A Penny Dreadful than I’d expected.
BUT! That should be over soon, and I hope to have more pages available in the near future.

In the mean time, enjoy a video of me in all my unemployed glory:

At Long Last – Three New Pages
