16 October 2016: I apologize for the lack of news posts recently; when there aren't new pages to post, I don't really know what to say.

I have been in crunch mode for the last several months on other projects, and then last month I had an unrecoverable hard drive crash. I didn't lose any of my documents or art files, but I did lose all of my program data, including the 2D and 3D software and all the fonts that I use for the comic.

I have been able to reacquire the fonts I most need (thanks to Comicraft for their assistance), and I am still in the process of reinstalling my 3D software (which is older and requires new keys from the publisher), which I hope will resolved this week.

Thanks again for your patience.

Sorry for the slow pace of updates over the last few months. Trying to fix that.

I'll get this update schedule figured out sooner or later.

On a semi-related note: Stars in Shadow, the space combat game that I have been working on, is now up for Steam Greenlight consideration. If you're curious about the game and/or would like to see it available on Steam, I encourage you to check it out.

The Patreon launch has gone very well, and I'd like to thank everyone for their generous support. If you check back here tomorrow, I should have a surprise for you.

10 November 2015: A number of readers have suggested that I set up a Patreon page for Outsider, and I have finally done so. My hope is that it may allow me to create pages on a more regular schedule. If you have ideas for pledge rewards that you'd like to see, let me know via the forums, email, Facebook, or the Patreon page.

Things have been a little bit nuts for me the last few months. I'm hoping they'll be slightly less nuts for a little while. Let's see how much we can get done.

Well, that was a rather embarrassing additional delay... but here it is.
