Hello, everyone.

I’m sorry for dropping of the face of the Earth. I didn’t just do it here, I did it to almost everyone in my life.

This is really hard for me to explain. I really don’t like talking about myself or my problems. I’ve deleted and rewrote this post so many times, until I just said “fuck it”. I owe y’all an explanation, and this is the best I can come up with: I got overwhelmed and when I get overwhelmed I completely shut down. It’s hard to find the will to do a comic or even just live life when I’m constantly battling depression, social anxiety, regular anxiety, a chronic existential crisis, self-loathing, my complete ineptness at making good life decisions and the aftermath of making those decisions. I meant to come back to TNBTU months ago, but with my stretching absence, my anxiety of returning grew. Somehow, now, after a year and a month, I’ve managed to scrounge up some willpower/courage, and I’m gonna try this again.

Anyway, enough of that bummer shit, TNBTU will return Friday, August 4th. Also, it’ll only be updating Fridays for now.

Thank you for sticking with me or the comic and all the nice comments. There were over 100 waiting for me to approve. I can’t reply to all of them, but I really do appreciate it. I’m surprised and grateful that a lot of them were concerns about my well being, rather than the “fuck you for ditching us” comments I was expecting. God, I really need to learn to be more positive somehow.

Anyway, see you Friday! Perhaps, you can binge/catch-up before then if need to. (I know I needed to.)
