I'm a fan of this comic just now coming out of the shadows. :)I really love this comic and think it is great. Really sorry about your friend. :( It's not easy losing someone close to you especially a friend. Anyway great page. :D
Awwww, I might not know what losing a best mate is like, but in the last almost half a year, I've been to someone I've known relatively well's funeral practically each month.
It's a real downer, but you'll find people will support you from every which way, and even sometimes the most unexpected people turn out to help you the most. ^_^
Don't worry about not feeling like updating, I doubt anyone here could blame you, there is nothing wrong with a bit of time off. Just know we're all rooting for you ^_^.
~R.I.P~ You're comic is brilliant as always, and full respect for even updating after such an unfortunate turn of events.
