Alright, well, there's the comic.

What's there to say? I spent about six years of my life making Fragile, during which my relationship status, living situation, life goals, gender, and physical body changed. I in some ways feel like a completely different person; considering I made Fragile from the ages of 17 to 24, it'd probably be more concerning if I didn't feel that way.

Fragile represents a pretty significant chapter of my life coming to a close. While there are plenty of things that I dislike or wish I'd done differently with it, overall I am proud of the work I put into it and of the comic as a whole. 629 pages is...a lot of pages.

I'm hoping to launch my next comic either November or December this year (won't know for a little bit), but until then you can find me on twitter, tumblr, deviantart, and of course on my Patreon, where you will get pre-production and updates on my next project.

Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed!

Aw, I avoided the semblance of tears, but a few of the last 8 pages, starting with the headstone, made me tear up (which sounds small, but for me is a lot). SO SUPER WELL DONE! AMAZING COMIC!

I discovered it via your gorgeous art in the Vattuu fanzine; I've been binge-reading FRAGILE since. Thank you for all your hard work, and congratullations!

Now to go discover/join your Patreon. :-) Hey, do you have a PayPal donation option somewhere? After 629 pages in such a short time, I want to pay back taxes on the enjoyment, humor, sadness, action, artwork, and MOMENTOUS HAND HOLDING FRAMES. ;-) Plus, you deserve hazard pay for all those crowd scenes you survived, heh.

BTW it's really funny timing that I finished my binge late Saturday, just in time to discover the last page just now. :-O Spooky!

Thank you! That means a lot to hear, it's always an achievement when my work makes someone tear up, especially if they're not typically prone to that >:3c

Glad to hear you found me through the Vattu fanzine as well! I wasn't thinking about people finding my work through that (Just wanted to show my love for Vattu) but it's nice that a couple folks have. Really happy you liked what you saw!

And thank you so much for the Patreon pledge! I'm not accepting donations personally right now, but I have a friend who's going through a hard time and needs some help—if you want to make a donation to show your appreciation for my work, it would mean a lot if you could donate to him. He helped me a lot during the development/writing period for Fragile and more than that is just a dear friend and a good person. Info on his situation as well as his paypal is here: https://twitter.com/bograbbit/status/1573447664561279019

Use your power to engender tears wisely, sir. And yeah, Vattu was an amazing epic and deserves all the love! :-D

And WOAH, holy carp!!! Thanks for the link; I've donated to show my appreciation!

I love a good tragedy, and what's a tragedy without an ending? Thank you so much!

It feels so surreal and bittersweet clicking on the final page today, having been there when this comic first started and reading it consistently the whole way through....I really feel like I've grown up along with this comic as well. This was a beautiful read and I'm glad to see your journey to completion with it. thank you for sharing your art and stories with the world, I can't wait to see what you make next <3!!!!
