Chapter 8 | Page 16

Thus this scene ends. It’s not the end of the chapter, but I at least wanted to end on a transition before I tell you guys something.

TMK is going on hiatus! :D

*dodges tomatoes*

Okay relax! The reason for this is because I’m working on getting the first volume of TMK put together. This includes a bonus chapter featuring Loki and Thor, and the time spent usually working on current pages will have to go to working on these pages. I’ll also be trying to figure out how to get a Kickstarter going, and no doubt worrying endlessly about it. If you want to keep tabs on what I’m doing, you can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr. Tumblr might be the better bet, since I’m actually posting the sketch pages of the bonus comic there, so you get something of a sneak peek! Also on Twitter I am pretty active and not generally talking about comic stuff so it might be more annoying to follow. :3

So just because I won’t be updating here, it doesn’t mean I’m not working on things. I hope you guys understand. This does not mean I’m losing interest in TMK or anything like that! In fact I’m still working on TMK, it’s just not stuff I can post. I can’t give a date when the webcomic will return, but I’ll post news updates now and then to keep those of you who don’t have/want Twitter or Tumblr up to date.

Thank you for reading. :3 See you soon!

  1. Hiatus!

    That’s one of the signs that Ragnarok is imminent, isn’t it?

    • Luckily no! Otherwise TMK definitely will never come back.

    • No, Coal voluntarily smiling in happiness is a sign of Ragnarok’s approach.

      • ^ THIS ^

        Other signs include Ibrahim willingly travelling, Hedda doing something mean, and Loki going a day without pranking.

        • And the twins successfully pranking Loki

          • Indeed.And the chances of THAT happening are…. NOPE!

  2. *tosses tomato from hand to hand* I’m thinking…
    Haha, no, I can’t wait for the book to come out. I’ll buy one!
    …Dang it, I came out of lurkerdom. Oh well.
    “Checkmate.” “WHAT” *snicker*

    • Thank you for coming out of lurkerdom. :3 And thanks for not throwing tomatoes. It’s nice to have supportive readers!

      • I’d like to come out of lurkedom too.
        Your comic is fantastic and I like it and I told my friends and they liked it and I hope you will get your lucky break and find time soon and please don’t go away we lost so many already where are you all going, it’s like webcartoonist’s famine out here I have like ten bookmarks oh hold PLEASE PLEASE BE BACK.
        Ah-heh. Anyway good luck.

        • Haha, relax Varg! I said I’d be back, I even gave a timetable. I’m still working on TMK stuff, I just can’t show you guys yet. I hope when I get the Kickstarter together you and your friends will think of ordering. :D Thank you!

  3. We’ll wait. Fingers crossed for first volume of TMK :)

    • Thank you! Hopefully it won’t take too long, but it’ll definitely be a couple of months at least. >_< Uagh.

  4. Don’t worry…I seem to be out of tomatoes at the moment, but I -do- have money to throw at you when your kickstarter starts up! =D

    Also, loving the last panel

    • Thank you! I definitely won’t turn away from people throwing money at me. :D

  5. Can we send you fanart and/or guest pages to fill in some stuff?

    • Oh, sure! I had sort of thought of doing that, but wasn’t sure there was enough interest. I’ll ask next week if anyone wants to do that! :D Thanks!

  6. NOOOOOOOOOOOO–book? BOOK!

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK!

  7. (*whining*) But I just started reeeeaaaaadiiiiiiiiing!!!!!!!!

    The story is interesting, the artstyle is eye-catching and fitting for the characters, and I bet a lot of people cannot wait for more!
    Good luck with your book and the continuation of this web comic. b(-_-)d (thumbs-up!)

    • Haha, sorry about the timing! I’m glad you enjoy the comic though, thank you so much! :D

  8. Oh boy I am psyched! This is way cool, a book!

    • Yep! It won’t be for a while, but I’m hoping to get it done before fall! We will see.

  9. Hmmm. In the face of a hiatus, I’ll also come out of the silent web shadows and say I’m pumped for a print volume!

    However, all I really want to know right now is whether Ibrahim brings that chess set with him. It looks awfully familiar…

    • Thank you for coming out of the shadows! I’m glad people seem to be understanding and excited for the print volume. And I’m afraid Ibrahim won’t be bringing the chess set. He will have to travel light. Got a long way to go!

  10. Crap! I started reading this comic yesterday, and I’m already here.
    I can’t imagine my future life without this comic!

    • Haha, sorry for the abrupt change! Thank you for reading though. And don’t worry, it’ll come back soon!

  11. We miss you. And when are we looking to expect the kickstarter? *can’t wait! So excited! Miss Coal!*

    • Hmm well I’m going to move in a couple of weeks, so I don’t want to start the Kickstarter while I’m in the middle of all that! Then again, I have everything kind of budgeted and figured out, and now I need to put together the video. That might be the trickiest part of it, really! I don’t have any video editing software. Then I can work on the prints and stuff while the Kickstarter is going….Bah! So much to think about, but check back in August! I’m thinking more that time frame. *vague finger wiggle*

      Also, thank you so much! I’m glad you miss Coal. :3 He’ll be back, don’t worry!

  12. Hiss, my dad would disapprove of you, Mr. Oppressive Caliph Abu. (But this is such a common problem, and especially was at that time. :[ )
