Wow. Okay, so… What was supposed to be a one-month hiatus has stretched to 14 months and counting, and that is completely my fault. A barrage of major life events (losing my job, seeking and finding a new one, welcoming my girlfriend from halfway across the world, two hand surgeries, etc.) have crashed down on me and, combined with a vicious attack of long-term writer’s block, led to me repeatedly kicking the can down the road on Panthera, again and again.
But I am not dead, nor is Jeff, and we have decidedly not abandoned this story. We plan to return to it sometime this summer, once we have a hearty backlog of pages, to ensure that this never happens again.
Where has Panthera been? Well, apparently, they cloned themselves four times each and started hanging out in my local grocery store. This was quite a sight to see, and reminded me powerfully that I have a story to keep telling here. The cats will be back, probably preceded by some sketches and concept art, so keep checking in!
