Information and Clarification

This news post, defying the norm which I have set, does not accompany a comic. Instead, this one's just some stuff I want said about the site, for various reasons.


There will be no comic this Saturday, as I will not be here, and I will not have the time to make one today to put up on delayed update, did not have the time yesterday, or on Wednesday.

And if you think I was gonna make another comic on the day I'm supposed to update anyway (Tuesday), why, you're downright silly.


I'd like to set something straight. As I've come to Analog Paladins, I realize that with the backwash from Duke's readers, I'll be getting a lot more people reading my comic, if not entirely through the means which I originally intended. However, I'm going to establish something right now and maintain it until the completion of Oriosis' Edge, which will likely be a long way away:

In no way will I "Sell out" to attract more readers from Duke's fanbase, or anyone else's, or anyone, really. I believe that as the author it's my duty to serve my story first, and if that means that it brings my comic a certain amount of unpopularity, then so be it. I don't want the story that I originally envisioned for Oriosis' Edge being tainted by bad or out-of-character jokes, petty attempts to draw in more fans, or anything of the like, if it means sacrificing the original story I intended in any way, shape, or form.

I know I probably sound like some indie rocker right now, but I will not change anything about Oriosis' Edge just because it may get me more readers. I will stay true to the story of Aveyan, Ayara, Volite, and Alrea. I'm not one of those psycho-authors who likes to act as if their characters are real people who can converse with them, or anything, but I like the story I created, and its characters, and I'm not gonna screw those characters up for popularity.

Ahem. Rant ova'.
