Saying Goodbye: Part 4on February 18, 2022 at 12:01 am
Well, this is a little surreal.
For a couple of years, I wondered to myself how the comic might end. Would it be happy or sad or maybe a little bit of both?
Then one night, not long after Hazel passed, Georgia and I were doing our nightly ritual of reading stories and saying prayers while Meghan was getting the baby to bed. I mentioned how I was thankful for Olive and the new cat, Mary Cupcake when Georgia matter-of-factly reminded me not to forget Hazel. And it was in that moment I decided that’s how the comic would end. By remembering Hazel and giving thanks.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everyone who’s followed the strip each week, retweeted it, liked it on Facebook, left nice comments, even purchased it at conventions and on Comixology; the list goes on and on. It was the fuel that kept the fire going and pushed me to put out the best comic I could for four solid years. So thank you.
Some people have asked me what’s next. To be honest with you, I’ve mostly been focusing on being a Dad to my girls these days, cramming in a little artwork here and there where I can. I don’t have another webcomic in the works at the moment, but who knows, maybe I’ll take another crack at it one of these days. Between you and me, I think the Sharksquatch deserves his own strip for a few years.
So goodbye and farewell. Thanks again for reading; you’re the best.
