Hell no. But I guess I can't blame you for wondering. I said we'd be keeping you dudes updated on things during this hiatus and I've totally failed to do so. Jessica has been posting updates to her Patreon, so I guess I figured that would suffice, but I should've been posting updates on this site as well.

Here was my logic behind this silence (which Jessica didn't agree with).

Basically, the longer we went without updating, the more I felt that if I were to post an update that didn't entail the end of the hiatus, it'd just annoy the fans. Like, I pictured you dudes seeing that we posted an update, then you get all exited thinking the hiatus is finally over, and then you feel bitter disappointment when you see that it's just some kind of progress report. So my thinking was that it might be best for us to keep a low profile and then BAM—bust out of our hiatus with a glorious return to weekly comic page updates, podcasts, and so on.

Of course, this hiatus is taking longer than we thought, due to a whole host of issues, from personal life drama stuff that I won't go into, to technical bullshit (we recently had our main hard drive on Jessica's PC—the one with all the Satan Ninja content—start dying on us, ironically just as we had decided to finally purchase a backup drive in case of such an event ... I've managed to save everything important, but it's been a huge headache and a time sink).

I've gotta get ready for work right now, but I'll make sure to post an actual update on the site either tomorrow or Friday. It's been way too long.

Sorry to worry you, but I promise you that this comic isn't going to be abandoned by us. The only way it'll die is if we suddenly die in some tragic accident. And even then, since we already have the whole comic plotted out, maybe we should leave some instructions with our friends in case of our death to release all our behind the scenes notes, so you dudes would at least get to learn everything that we had planned for the comic. But that's really fucking morbid to think about.

Hmm, maybe a little Howard Jones will cheer you guys up.  Anyways, I have to admit that I have been pretty eager to see what Issue 4 has in store.  However, I'm not worried or disappointed because I know that you guys put a lot of time and effort to make sure that Satan Ninja kicks ass.   I plan on sticking around for a long time because I believe in you guys!  So please, take as much time as you need to get ready.  I know you guys will prevail!

Oh man, I'm familiar with that song of course, but I don't recall ever seeing that video. Thanks for that, the dude's hair alone cheered me to the max. Not to mention the totally random karate dude.

Thanks, Microwave Dude. It's great to see that you're still checking in. We're both working hard to try and make sure Issue 4 is worth the long wait.

We'll be posting the first page of Issue 4 this Friday (the 13th), and our plan is to continue to post a new page every week thereafter. And in between new pages, we intent to do more podcasts, twitch streams, and blog posts. So there's plenty of SN8X goodness to be unleashed this fall.

Also, welcome to the forum!

Oh my god..

Just an idea, isn't is easier to switch to a bi-weekly schedule?

Absolutely. Especially since Jessica has fallen into a bit of an art rut where each page has been taking her about two weeks to complete. It's mostly due to her ADD and perfectionism blending in to a molasses cocktail of slothdom. But she's now working with someone to try and get her speed up. She used to be able to get a page done within five days, and we're confident she can return to that. So we're shooting for a page a week. Two a week would be ideal and should be possible, but first things first.

Switching to bi-weekly updates is an option, but we view it as a last resort. Even if all our fans would be totally cool with it, we simply don't want to tell this story at that slow of a pace.

Please avoid switching to bi-weekly updates for as long as possible. Just joined and was shocked to see the title of the thread. Thank God nothing serious.

Yeah, it's kinda tempting to create a bunch of new threads in this section of the forum just to bury this one. Or I suppose I could use my admin powers to alter the title to something a bit less cryptic.

Anyway, welcome to the forum, dude!
