Do not adjust your favorite list! You're not seeing things! We have an update! ...A filler piece of art to let you know I'm still around but... still...

Allow me to explain a bit. (Hopefully a bit. I don't want to be too long winded with this.) 2015 broke my record of fewest updates. I know we've been going downhill the last few years and it annoys me too. Recently, two good friends of mine, SilverLunarWing and theB3ing, cancelled their own comics, Shinka The Last Eevee and Pokemon Beta respectively. I respect their decision to do so and have no problem with them decided to call it quits when they said they did so specifically because they didn't enjoy it anymore. I wouldn't WANT them to keep going if they didn't want to.

But for some reason them both announcing their cancellation made me paranoid that people didn't know that I intended to make a comeback. So here we are with this update.

There are a lot of factors, but the biggest reason 2015 saw such a decline in updates is because my back starting causing me problems. It's painful sitting at my desk for extended periods. I kept expecting to find solutions or ways to get around it, or just to fix my back in general. But it's become clear my back troubles are here to stay and so I just have to learn to work through them. The problem now is just that I am simply out of practice with updating and drawing in general. I kinda had to relearn Manga Studio a bit just making the few pieces of art I've done the last several months. And it's obviously unrelated, but I am in the middle of trying to buy myself a house so it's entirely possible I'll be moving in the coming months.

I say that only to point out that updates will be coming, but they are going to be slow at first. I have to figure out what my limits are exactly with my back and just simply get back into the habit of drawing. Do I have a time frame or update schedule? No, not yet, I'm afraid. But soon?

Those of you that watch both comics will notice that I put this up on both Nightmare and Just Gotta. (And both will have the same comment below, just FYI.) I'm putting it on both just for the ones that just watch one or the other. But anyways, both comics will be making a bit of a comeback, but to be honest, Nightmare may take slightly more priority for the first little while. I already have the next page in the works while Just Gotta has hit a wall and hard. Just Gotta has always had its problems I've had to try to fix as I go seeing as I'm too stubborn to rewrite it. And seeing how I like to write and imagine action/fight scenes but not draw them and Just Gotta has like three fighting scenes going on right now, it's kinda hard for me to deal with. To get things going I might just take a break from the current chapter and do an extra or something. That had been my plan like a year ago so I might just have to go through with it.

Anyways, expect probably more Nightmare updates than Just Gotta updates when things start moving. It might switch to the other way around again, but we'll have to see. For some reason I try as hard as I do with Nightmare yet don't hold its art to as high of a standard. Not sure why that is... it's weird.

So yeah. Hope you guys have managed to stick around and will be around for what comes next!

It's been forever since I've drawn Hillaree and yet somehow I still could do it from muscle memory. Not that weird I guess. I gave Nightmare Mewtwo his book so he hopefully isn't confused with Just Gotta Mewtwo. Also I need to stop trying to put Mewtwos back to back because I always get in trouble with their tails. The text kinda has double meaning. It's supposed to be like, "We're still here for you!" but also be like, "Hey, Vye, your comics literally aren't progressing!" So that's fun, heh.

I hope to see you guys soon! (If anyone is still around that is! Hahaha!)

It's alive! Between this comic reviving and pokemon beta continuing as a written work, I am happy about the lack of expected comic deaths.

I am so happy I found this comic page (After a bit of a absence... uhhh >.<) I was really worried what happened to this comic, sense so many have kinda just.... shut down. Also I understand the back pains, I've recently done something above my ankle so I've been having constant pains in my leg, lets hope we both get though this. :)

Heh, I hear where you're coming from. This year has seen very sparse updates to my fan project too - it doesn't help that time is going crazy fast, never mind all the other things that crop up. I'm sorry to hear about your back problems though...hope you're able to find a balance between making what you enjoy and taking care of the health side of things. - Gemma @ Pokemon Rebirth

Button Issues Posting a comment to anyone who doesn't see the new update!

I am aware of the PhotoBucket issue and will get it fixed the next few days. I don't think this impacts the comic pages themselves, but if you find one that isn't displaying properly, let me know!
