As of today (or technically as of last Wednesday, I guess) Conspiracy Friends is on indefinite hiatus. When I started the comic almost three years ago, I was writing full-time, and kicking out a comic strip every morning was the perfect way to get my creative juices flowing. Alas, now that my main job is taking care of an infant human child, the comic is taking up pretty much all of my precious work time. I had hoped that by cutting CF back to 3 days a week I could find a balance, but the harsh reality is that right now I need to put my efforts into projects that generate regular income (turns out babies gotta eat!).
I know it sounds corny, but producing a daily comic has been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream, and I’m absurdly proud of how Conspiracy Friends has come along. I can’t even tell you how much it means to me that you all got a kick out of it too.
And rest assured: I still have loose outlines for like five more books, so whenever my life gets to a stage when it makes sense to start doing this again, all the reptilian shapeshifters, robot duplicates, and Lady Gaga clones in the world won’t be able to stop me.
Thanks for your generosity, support, and most of all, just for reading.
