Back from the Dead - So it's been a lot more than 2 years since my last post. I feel like I owe the 800+ fans that supported me for years a very big apology. The last few years of my life have been very on the go, and have left me little time to focus on drawing as much as I would want to. And also, as much as I am a fan of manga, it's been bugging me for a long time that my comic has not veered into its own style and 158 pages later I could not be bothered to redraw it once again (those who have been with me from the beginning would know I redid the whole comic when i hit over 100 pages many years ago)I assume that having spent so much time traveling and admiring the culture and art of other cultures (especially the comic culture) I have become obsessed with the beauty and uniqueness of each country, especially many european comics. My style in the past few years has definitely veered into the animation direction, which is where I want to go, but I was feeling a constant fight with Bullet, because while I could have been using the comic to push me in the direction I wanted to go, the choice to conform to a general manga style made me feel a bit caged, and I think it was the main reason I gave up.
A few months ago I picked up the script and just started writing and rewriting, trying to make the story more cohesive, more mature. I really would love to redo it as I have rewritten the new storyline, which would sort of re-age the characters and dwelve deeper into the setting in which they are in. But at the same time, I am still happy with the initial plot, so I am working now on making them work together. The last thing I'm sure anyone wants to see is the whole thing to start over again. So I'm going to pick up where I left off. Perhaps some things will be a bit inconsistent with what you read up till now, but I will do my best to make it a smooth transition. The main story hasn't changed one bit. The details have just fallen into place and the script has a definite end point now. As for the art style, I think once I have posted these last few pages which you have never seen (which I did years ago), it will change, I am reworking the character designs to something more of my own style. It might not be so manga-ey, but the way the story is written will still continue to feel the same.

@juri0juli: Why not keep this one, and also create a newer version? At least than if you decide that you want to come back to this one and you're not quite digging the other one, this one will still be available. :) If you post post you'll have the option of choosing between which plot and webcomic to go with rather than just tossing one.
