...Finally. Hey look! Art that actually has something to do with this comic!

I'd been wanting to make a "cover" for Just Gotta for a while. I drew a very simple one up some time ago. Then I just never did anything with it. Then when Smack Jeeves changed its layout, I kept getting emails about how the site was changing and how I needed a cover to keep Just Gotta in the normal listing. They warned me well in advance... I just never got around to it. It was hard to get motivated to do so when I wasn't really updating anyway.

But for some reason I was hit with the itch and now Just Gotta has a normal cover like the other comics. Woot. Nightmare will be next.

Just kind of doing this as an update to show it off but I don't know if I'll be keeping this in the archives normally or not.

So this now begs the question: Is Just Gotta updating again? Well, no. I don't have any comics actually put together. After I started Nightmare and realized how much more fun I was having working on it rather than Just Gotta, and how the the flaws were so abundant in Just Gotta, it was very hard to work on. I never had the urge to cancel it or reboot it though. I just kept it on hold. Then I finally starting making headway on Sheer Power so that was also a thing.

I know it's been years since Just Gotta updated, but I always wanted to go back to it. And so... I plan to.

When? Well, I don't know. It's hard to make promises. For a while I was considering putting the current chapter on hold and do a side chapter to get more important backstory explained, but I couldn't really commit to that either. So I basically decided to pick up where I left off. I want to get a lot of pages stockpiled before I start updating again. This means it will be a while.

In the meantime, I'll be putting up more frequent updates here just so you know for sure I didn't forget about you guys!

On a somewhat related note, thanks to everyone who downloaded Sheer Power Book 1 while it was available for free! I'm glad someone did! I haven't gotten many readers yet, so if you did download it, I hope you will give me some feedback! Good or bad will be helpful. And if you didn't get it when it was available for free, well, you can still buy it of course. I can't put it out for free again for a few months. If I do it again, I might do it around May when I plan on releasing Book 3. We'll see.

As usual, I'm glad you guys were sticking by me! Hopefully your patience will be reward soon.

This was actually fun to draw. Once I started, I wanted to finish which is unusual. It has been so long since I drew these characters! I'm more or less happy with the final result, but I do kind of wish I had done something different with Ponyta. Meh. I'll just say it was because I was out of practice. That's a good excuse, right?
