    What a dilemma there for Haley.

    Hiding is her best skill, but she can't hide anymore...

    Good stuff, Giant! Poor Haley. She's really trying to figure this out. Loved the final lines. "But I'm a rogue...hiding is my best skill."

    Is Kyron and Rachel and the reasons for their leaving (along with Mom's reason) found in "On The Origins of PCs"? I've been meaning to order that, and I guess I need to quit procrastinating.


    As for cutting back to 2 strips a week: no arguements here. I mean, it's been pretty clear for a bit that things are difficult for you. We'll all be disappointed to have less Stick for a while, and that's just a reflection of how good the comic is. In other words, you do a great job, and folks can't wait for the next installment. But I think it's better for us to know up front what to expect.

    (Then maybe we'll have a few less "I hope Rich isn't hurt" posts whenever the comic's a bit late) ;D

    Personification of self-loathing. Good concept.

    I hope the new schedule allows you to do what you need to get done. Twice a week is fine by me. ...Grk.

    Giant, what you do here is a work of art. And art can't be rushed. Be in peace with yourself and your fanhood, we all understand.

    I, myself, find me almost failling deadlines all the time. It's difficult to work and live at the same time.

    The important thing in life is to be happy and make others around you happy. But try to put yourself first, but NEVER ABOVE others.

    Awesome comic Giant. Kinda sad about only two updates, but it does take a lot of pressure off of you, so it's a good thing.

    Excellent strip - looks like things might be coming to a head :)

    And regarding the schedule change, s'all good and I for one appreciate the "up-frontness" of you telling us. It's disappointing to not get a comic when you're expecting one, but now we know not to expect one, so solved!

    Quality >> Quantity, after all.

    Woot! Thank you Giant! Love the new comic, perfect way to spend a study break!

    And don't worry about pushing back to two comics a week. Two comics a week are better than no comics a week.

    How appropriate. I've been rewatching Babylon 5 lately, and picking out some similar themes between JMS's work and the Giant's. Unrequited love was the source of all pain out in space, too, and the character Ivanova loses everyone she loves.

    Very nice similarities.

    And let me guess. . .Goth Haley's favorite band was Cure Light Wounds?
    Good roleplaying does not preclude fireballing their asses.&&&&Way to go, Sharkey. You filled the city with the light of a thousand suns!&&&&Now if you\'ll excuse me, my chickens have some subpeonas to serve.

    I'm fine with you going back to 2 comics a week. It' s a bit nicer to read knowing that you didn't get to stressed out during the making of the comic ;)
    The comics are worth waiting for ;D


    Oh.. And poor Haley... Brings me back to when I was a teenager. :'(

    Giant, you can do the introspective as well as you do the funny. My (metaphorical) hat is off to you! Great stirp! It was well worth the wait! As usual the facial expressions were so good that you could almost read the story without actually reading the text.

    Every time you do a strip that focuses on one character my favourite character changes, lol. I guess my fave is the one you're currently telling us about! :D

    The reappearance of the teenage Haley was cool too, who better to tell you straighten up and fly right?

    And oh Elan's obliviousness (is that a word?) is so sweet to see (last panel is a true gem).

    Woo what a comic! Thank you Giant!
