I have to say, that blood on the sidewalk looks beautiful.
Anyway, I have to apologize again for the lack of comics. I hate when I let this comic go for so long without an update, because I hate letting down all my fans.
However, I think I need to take some time look back at the origins of this comic, and how both it and I have progressed. When I started Heroes Inc. in 2004, I had just graduated high school. I lived with my parents, I had lots of free time, only a part-time job, and no girlfriend. I used this comic partly as an experiment for me to learn Photoshop.
That was 6 years and several versions of Photoshop ago. It’s now 2010. Heroes Inc. has progressed from a simple sprite-comic to a full-blown multimedia online graphic novel. I graduated college 2 years ago, and now I have a full time graphic design / production job. I have my own apartment. I have a hot girlfriend who just got out of school for the summer, and will likely want to spend as much time with me as possible. In addition to these real life activities, I have a handful of other projects I’m working on, some of which I’ve shown you all, some of which are still under wraps.
Long story short, I don’t have as much opportunity to work on Heroes Inc. as I ‘d like. Despite being the Photoshop wizard I am, it still takes about 3 solid hours to make each comic, and in my current station in life, 3 solid free hours aren’t always easy to find.
I want to make one thing clear, I am not going to quit Heroes Inc. any time soon. I have a complete story to tell, and even if I could put out 3 comics a week, it would take a few more years to finish. But as things stand, there’s no way this can be a 3-per-week comic. Best case scenario, once a week.
But I’m not abandoning you. In addition to the actual comic, I’ll keep you updated on my other projects as they become relevant. Look for: new drawn comics, videos, new literary work, and potentially some new business ventures you may be interested in checking out.
So anyway, the tl;dr version: Heroes Inc. isn’t dead, but from here out updates will likely be sporadic. I suggest you subscribe to the RSS feed so you don’t miss anything.
