Very ill timed

If you've been reading the comic up until now, you know that I try to keep it very funny and light-hearted for the most part. However, even I sometimes dare to venture into darker territory and strike up a violent cord or two. No where was this more evident than when Violette went berserk a few pages ago.

This particular incident was not an isolated one--I do indeed plan for more violence to occur in the comic. Some of the characters I have planned are very sinister and gruesome and I have no intention of censoring myself as long as I feel the timing is right.

At this particular moment, I am inking page 150. It is an incredibly violent page. And it could not have come at a worse time.

In case you've had your head under a rock these past few days, there was a very serious earthquake that struck Japan last Friday. Entire towns have been wiped off of the map by very devastating tsunamis that struck shortly afterward. Mere words cannot describe the destruction wrought by all of this but I don't want to link to any images of it for you guys to follow. I'm sure Google is swamped with enough of those at this point.

So, after a lot of thought, I decided to hold off one week to post page 150.

I simply think that, in light of what has happened, I should put some distance between what I am going to show and that which has occurred in our world.

That is all.
