Chapter 4 Name Change

Okay so this is gonna seem odd, and I've never done something like this before, but I'm going to change the name of Chapter 4 before things get too far into it.

I feel like I've been super-sloppy with how I've handled WOE the past couple weeks, but labeling the entire chapters' pages with "Legion _" just feels off considering a good portion of it will be more of the ol' slice-of-life-y/romance stuff before things pick up pace again.

I'm sure it's no real secret that the chapter's climax will be a long-awaited showdown with Dalson Legion, but I don't want the entire chapter labeled with that. I know that now that I've uploaded the first actual page and was struck with a feeling of, "do I really want the Legion name lording over every event of the chapter?"

So now Chapter 4 will be "Verge", a much more ambiguous, (and cool!) name that won't feel out-of-place for the chapter's events. I put more into these chapter titles than it might seem, but Chapter 4 was such a long time coming that I never stopped to think about how the pages themselves would look. I had grown too accustomed to it as a behind-the-scenes title for the sake of organization.

Chapter 3 End Note

Damn, where do I even begin... Now that Chapter 3 is complete, I thought I'd put together a little news post to give an idea of what my upcoming comic plans are. I have a lot of stuff to do, some of which will take some time, and it's a tad overwhelming, but exciting!

I guess to keep things simple, here's the main gameplan for upcoming stuff:

  • Gonna take a short break to gather myself and start prepping stuff, work on page layouts, etc.
  • Make a Title page for The Crisis, and finish the chapter, giving closure to WOE's distant prequel.
  • I'm still planning on working on a guide for new readers, not only to give people a fast and painless alternative to the first couple chapters, but to introduce people to the comic and expanded universe a bit as well. I want to get this done soon because I'll feel much more comfortable sharing my comic in more places knowing newcomers will have plenty of info and options.
  • I really want to take some time to work on extra little things here and there. Solidify an intro to Time Land, consider rebooting Welcome to the IFS!, work on concept art, make some fanart, make a secret little extra between-chapters scene for WOE, just generally have some fun before I strap in for chapter 4.
  • And then of course, last but not least, I plan to whip up a title page for Chapter 4 and get back to the main story.

Again, lots of stuff, and that doesn't even touch on everything, but I'm pretty excited. WOE is feeling more and more like something worth sharing, as opposed to a shitty little comic with promises of cool stuff in the future. (Gee, it only took me close to a decade to reach that point, huh?)

I also really want to start rolling around ideas for a Patreon, but I'm super nervous about that since my fanbase is so quiet. I have a decent little following here but there's no telling whether a Patreon would be worthwhile yet or if it'd just come off as embarrassing. That and I'm still not sure what kinda stuff I could offer as incentive... Oh well! We'll see what the future holds!

I can't stress enough how much I love you guys for reading WOE, and I hope everyone enjoys what's to come!

Updates and Things! (And a short break!)

Been slowing down a bit lately due to some depression and stress building up and generally killing my motivation, and things might stay slow for a while. I kind of feel like I need a break, even though it kills me to take more time off than I already have since I wanted to finish this chapter before the end of the year.
I've been working harder on WOE than ever before, and it's taking it's toll, though in return I've been far more satisfied with it than the past several years, and even with very few comments the reader count has been really nice, I love you guys for getting into it now that the story is picking up!

Anyway without going into too much detail shit's been happening, gonna need to work on non-comic things this weekend, and I just overall want a break to relax and play games. Xenoverse 2 comes out Monday night and I wanted to make a small buffer so I could chill out and play for a few days, but I doubt I'll manage any kind of buffer. Instead I'll probably just take a short break from WOE, hopefully no longer than a week or so, if that.

Just thought I'd ramble a bit about why updates have slowed down, (then again it might not seem like it to readers, but I've spent less time working on WOE this week than I have in a long time,) and wanted to give a heads up that it might not speed up for a while! Thanks to those that understand and hang tight until I get back to making some pages!

I know I took a lot of "breaks" and hiatuses in the past, but I promise that's not going to become a habit again. I'm in it to win it and other than things beyond my control, (like the computer issues and hardware replacements I've had to deal with this year,) I'm doing my best to not take any major breaks from updating, especially since I rarely work on WOE over weekends.

So see ya next update, things are going to get real exciting before this chapter ends!
