Some News and Questions

I feel compelled to quickly let everyone who’s inquired via email or comment that the Breaking Point comic will eventually be finished, but it is not a priority right now. Since this weekend, in fact, I’ve put Freehope ep. 6 aside to finish up a commission project, so that will likely be pushed back until mid- or late-July for release.
